Power Electronics Applied to Industrial Systems and Transports 1

Synthetic Methodology to Converters and Components Technology

Nicolas Patin, University of Technology of Compiègne, France

Power electronics is based on the switching operating mode of semiconductor components. On this basis, the concepts of type (voltage or current) and reversibility of interconnected sources make it possible to apply a methodology for the synthesis of various types of converters.
Here the author presents the major types of components available, always from a user’s point of view, with the gate driv...

Power Electronics Applied to Industrial Systems and Transports 2

Power Converters and their Control

Nicolas Patin, University of Technology of Compiègne, France

Power electronics is the study of switching semiconductor components in order to control the flow of electrical energy. On this basis, the concepts of source categories (voltage or current) and their potential reversibilities make it possible to apply a methodology for the synthesis of various kinds of converters.
In this volume, the author provides an overview of electronic power converters (DC/...

Power Electronics Applied to Industrial Systems and Transports 3

Switching Power Supplies

Nicolas Patin, University of Technology of Compiègne, France

Some power converters are specifically designed for supplying various pieces of equipment (such as microprocessor boards) with a constant voltage. As a consequence, these filtering requirements involve the use of auxiliary passive components (coils and capacitors). This is one of the key parts of the subjects discussed in this book.
Moreover, this volume deals with other technical aspects of swit...

Discrete Element Method to Model 3D Continuous Materials

Discrete Element Model and Simulation of Continuous Materials Behavior Set – Volume 1

Mohamed Jebahi, Institute of Mechanics and Engineering of Bordeaux, France Damien Andre, Higher National School for Industrial Ceramics, France Inigo Terreros, Institute of Mechanics and Engineering of Bordeaux, France Ivan Iordanoff, Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Arts et Métiers, ParisTech, France

Complex behavior models (plasticity, crack, visco-elascticity) are facing several theoretical difficulties in determining the behavior law at the continuous (macroscopic) scale. When homogenization fails to give the right behavior law, a solution is to simulate the material at a mesoscale using the discrete element model (DEM) in order to directly simulate a set of discrete properties that are res...

From Big Data to Smart Data

Advances in Information Systems Set – Volume 1

Fernando Iafrate, Disneyland Paris, France

This books embodies a pragmatic approach to the topic of Big Data (the what it is) and Smart Data (the what for). The author explores the relationship between the two concepts by comparing and contrasting them in the context of a connected world where information technologies are perpetually evolving.
By defining Big Data and Smart Data through the use concrete examples, the author demystifies t...
