Download E-books Elektrische Maschinen: Fünfter Band: Stromwendermaschinen für ein- und mehrphasigen Wechselstrom Regelsätze (German Edition) PDF

Der V. Band, mit dem das Sammelwerk der Elektrischen Maschinen abschliesst, lag schon Anfang 1945 zum grossen Teil fertig gedruckt vor, als er durch Bombenangriff in der Druckerei mit allen Unterlagen ver nichtet wurde. Im wesentlichen ungeandert liegt nun der Neudruck vor. Der V. Band behandelt die einphasigen (Abschn. I) und die mehr phasigen (II) Maschinen mit Stromwender sowie die Regelsatze mit Induktionsmaschine als Vordermaschine (III). In den einleitenden Abschnitten I A und II A wird zunachst der Laufer mit Stromwender im Wechselfelde und im Drehfelde besprochen. Dabei werden die Grundlagen fur das Verhalten und die Berechnung der Maschinen behandelt. Die nachsten Abschnitte sind dann den ver schiedenen Maschinenarten gewidmet. Es folgen. 'Untersuchungen uber Selbsterregung und schliesslich, wie in den ubrigen Banden, Abschnitte uber die experimentelle Untersuchung und den Entwurf. Besondere Berucksichtigung findet die Funkenunterdruckung sowohl in den ein fuhrenden Abschnitten A als auch bei Betrachtung der verschiedenen Maschinenarten. Bei den einphasigen Maschinen (Abschn. I) steht der Reihenschluss motor, wie er fur Vollbahnen verwendet wird, im Vordergrund der Betrachtungen. Die meisten Berechnungsbeispiele beziehen sich auf 2 diesen Motor bei sixteen / Hz Netzfrequenz. Ausserdem werden aber auch three die andern Maschinenarten, wie z. B. die Repulsionsmotoren mit ihren Abarten, Reihenschluss-Repulsionsmotoren und Maschinen mit Neben schlusseigenschaften, ausfuhrlich beh

Download E-books A Philosophy of Technology: From Technical Artefacts to Sociotechnical Systems (Synthesis Lectures on Engineers, Technology, and Society) PDF

By Maarten Franssen

In A Philosophy of know-how: From Technical Artefacts to Sociotechnical structures, know-how is analysed from a sequence of other views. The research begins through focussing at the so much tangible items of know-how, known as technical artefacts, after which builds step-wise in the direction of contemplating these artefacts inside their context of use, and finally as embedded in encompassing sociotechnical structures that still comprise people as operators and social ideas like laws. Philosophical characterisations are given of technical artefacts, their context of use and of sociotechnical structures. Analyses are provided of the way technical artefacts are designed in engineering and what different types of technological wisdom is thinking about engineering. And the difficulty is taken into account how engineers and others can or can't effect the improvement of expertise. those characterisations are complemented by way of moral analyses of the ethical prestige of technical artefacts and the probabilities and impossibilities for engineers to steer this prestige whilst designing artefacts and the sociotechnical platforms within which artefacts are embedded. The working instance within the booklet is aviation, the place aeroplanes are examples of technical artefacts and the area aviation process is an instance of a sociotechnical process. concerns relating to the layout of quiet aeroplane engines and the reasons of aviation injuries are analysed for illustrating the ethical prestige of designing, and the function of engineers therein. desk of Contents: Technical Artefacts / Technical Designing / Ethics and Designing / Technological wisdom / Sociotechnical platforms / The function of Social elements in Technological improvement / Ethics and accidental effects of expertise

Download E-books The Next Catastrophe: Reducing Our Vulnerabilities to Natural, Industrial, and Terrorist Disasters PDF

By Charles Perrow

Charles Perrow is legendary around the world for his principles approximately general injuries, the inspiration that a number of and unforeseen failures--catastrophes ready to happen--are equipped into our society's advanced structures. In The subsequent Catastrophe, he bargains an important insights into tips to make us more secure, offering a daring new state of mind approximately catastrophe preparedness.

Perrow argues that instead of laying specific emphasis on keeping objectives, we should always decrease their measurement to lessen harm and minimize their recognition to terrorists. He makes a speciality of 3 factors of disaster--natural, organizational, and deliberate--and exhibits that our greatest desire lies within the deconcentration of high-risk populations, company energy, and demanding infrastructures comparable to electrical strength, computers, and the chemical and nutrients industries. Perrow unearths how the specter of disaster is at the upward push, no matter if from terrorism, normal failures, or business injuries. alongside the best way, he offers us the 1st finished heritage of FEMA and the dept of place of origin safeguard and examines why those firms are so unwell built to guard us.

The subsequent Catastrophe is a penetrating reassessment of the very genuine hazards we are facing at the present time and what we needs to do to confront them. Written in a hugely available sort through a popular systems-behavior professional, this booklet is vital examining for the twenty-first century. The occasions of September eleven and storm Katrina--and the devastating human toll they wrought--were basically the start. whilst the following mammoth catastrophe comes, do we be prepared? In a brand new preface to the paperback variation, Perrow examines the hot (and ongoing) catastrophes of the monetary situation, the BP oil spill, and worldwide warming.

Questo testo si propone di fornire al lettore una panoramica dettagliata delle principali metodologie modellistiche usate consistent with l. a. rappresentazione e l’analisi dei sistemi dinamici lineari e a pace continuo (con alcuni cenni ai sistemi non lineari). Il testo è stato pensato according to il Nuovo Ordinamento didattico che prevede una Laurea triennale e una Laurea Specialistica biennale. L’obiettivo è quello di coprire i contenuti di: un insegnamento introduttivo all’Automatica in keeping with los angeles Laurea, pensando advert un corso di studi che preveda un primo corso di Analisi dei Sistemi ed un secondo corso di Controlli Automatici; un insegnamento avanzato di Analisi dei Sistemi in line with l. a. Laurea Specialistica. Il testo è strutturato in maniera story che gli studenti della Laurea possano seguire un percorso in cui nei primi capitoli le sezioni commit advert argomenti complementari (rivolte agli studenti della Laurea Specialistica) possano essere omesse senza pregiudicare l. a. comprensione. Gli argomenti rivolti agli studenti della Laurea Specialistica sono trattati in svariate sezioni di complemento dei primi capitoli e negli ultimi due capitoli. Le caratteristiche salienti di questo testo, che lo distinguono da altri presenti nel landscape italiano, sono le seguenti: si tratta di un quantity di circa four hundred pagine principalmente dedicato all’analisi dei sistemi lineari e stazionari a ciclo aperto (e non dei sistemi in controreazione o in genere dei sistemi di controllo) e a pace continuo (e non dei sistemi a pace discreto). Due capitoli, tuttavia, approfondiscono lo studio dei sistemi in retroazione e dei sistemi non lineari. Vengono studiati in dettaglio sia i modelli ingresso-uscita sia i modelli in termini di variabili di stato. Vengono illustrate in dettaglio sia le tecniche di analisi nel dominio del pace che le tecniche di analisi nel dominio della variabile di Laplace e della frequenza.
