C & Data Structures (Electrical and Computer Engineering Series)

Divided into 3 separate sections, C & facts buildings covers C programming, in addition to the implementation of knowledge constructions and an research of complex information constitution difficulties. starting with the elemental techniques of the c programming language (including the operators, keep watch over buildings, and functions), the e-book progresses to teach those suggestions via sensible software with info constructions reminiscent of associated lists and timber, and concludes with the combination of C courses and complicated info constitution problem-solving.

Multiple Access Protocols: Performance and Analysis

Laptop conversation networks have come of age. this day, there's not often any expert, rather in engineering, that has no longer been the consumer of this type of community. This proliferation calls for the thorough realizing of the habit of networks by way of people who find themselves answerable for their operation in addition to by way of these whose job it really is to layout such networks.

Analog Signal Processing

Analog sign Processing brings jointly in a single position vital contributions and state of the art study ends up in this speedily advancing quarter. Analog sign Processing serves as a good reference, delivering perception into one of the most very important concerns within the box.

«Handbook of Image and Video Processing»

This guide is meant to function the fundamental reference aspect on snapshot and video processing, within the box, within the examine laboratory, and within the lecture room. every one bankruptcy has been written through rigorously chosen, extraordinary specialists focusing on that subject and punctiliously reviewed through the Editor, Al Bovik, making sure that the best intensity of realizing be communicated to the reader.

Air-flue gas system. Ambient air is driven by the forced-draft fan through the air preheater, which is heated by the high-temperature (600°F) flue gases. 34 Flow diagram of a typical drum-type steam boiler. (From [8]. ) mixed with fuel in the burners and enters the furnace, where it supports the fuel burning. The hot combustion flue gas generates steam and flows through the boiler to heat the superheater, reheaters, economizer, and other related systems. Induced-draft fans, located between the boiler and the stack, increase the flow and send the 300°F flue gases to the atmosphere through the stack.

In practice, the number of poles is dictated by the mechanical system (the prime mover) that drives the rotor. Steam turbines operate best at a high speed; thus, two- or four-pole machines are suitable. Machines driven by hydro turbines usually have more poles and operate at lower speeds. The stator windings are typically arranged so that the resulting armature field has the same number of poles as the rotor field. In practice, there are many possible ways to arrange these windings. 29. Each phase consists of a pair of windings and thus occupies four slots on the stator structure.

Electric generators are devices that convert energy from a mechanical form into an electrical form. This process, known as electromechanical energy conversion, involves magnetic fields that act as an intermediate medium. The input to the generating machine can be derived from a number of energy sources. For example, in the generation of large-scale electric power, coal can produce steam that drives the shaft of the machine. 24 The T connection for a three-phase to two-phase transformation. (From [3].
