Photovoltaic generation is one of the cleanest forms of energy conversion available. One of the advantages offered by solar energy is its potential to provide sustainable electricity in areas not served by the conventional power grid. Optimisation of Photovoltaic Power Systems details explicit modelling, control and optimisation of the most popular stand-alone applications such as pumping, power supply, and desalination. Each section is concluded by an example using the MATLAB® and Simulink® packages to help the reader understand and evaluate the performance of different photovoltaic systems. Optimisation of Photovoltaic Power Systems provides engineers, graduate and postgraduate students with the means to understand, assess and develop their own photovoltaic systems. As such, it is an essential tool for all those wishing to specialise in stand-alone photovoltaic systems. Optimisation of Photovoltaic Power Systems aims to enable all researchers in the field of electrical engineering to thoroughly understand the concepts of photovoltaic systems; find solutions to their problems; and choose the appropriate mathematical model for optimising photovoltaic energy.

This book discusses the expertise, skills, and techniques needed for the development of new materials and technologies. It focuses on finite element and finite volume methods that are used for engineering simulations, and present many state-of-the-art applications and advances to highlight these methods’ importance. For example, modern joining technologies can be used to fabricate new compound or composite materials, even those formed from dissimilar component materials. These composite materials are often exposed to harsh environments, must deliver specific characteristics, and are primarily used in automotive and marine technologies, i.e., ships, amphibious vehicles, docks, offshore structures, and even robots. To achieve the desired material performance, computer-based engineering tools are widely used for simulation, data evaluation, and design processes.

This inspiring textbook provides an essential introduction to wireless technologies for sensors, explores the potential use of sensors for numerous applications, and utilizes probability theory and mathematical methods as a means of embedding sensors in system design. The book discusses the need for synchronization and underlying limitations, the interrelation between given coverage and connectivity to the number of sensors needed, and the use of geometrical distance to determine the location of the base station for data collection, while also exploring the use of anchor nodes to determine the relative positions of sensors. The book addresses energy conservation, communication using TCP, the need for clustering and data aggregation, and residual energy determination and energy harvesting, together with key topics in sensor communication like mobile base stations and relay nodes, delay-tolerant sensor networks, and remote sensing and potential applications. The book defines routing methods and performance evaluation for random and regular sensor topology and covers sensor-based intrusion detection. The book focuses on applications such as interaction with actuators, final design with respect to a given application, personal and body-area networks for health-care applications and sensor networks as an integral component of the IoT. The importance of both coverage and connectivity is examined thoroughly in both randomly deployed sensor networks for defense applications and regularly placed sensors for an industrial setup. The content includes exercises as well as design-based project concepts. The book’s comprehensive coverage makes it well suited for use as a textbook for graduate and upper undergraduate courses, or as course material for professional courses.

NMR Spectroscopy using Liquid Crystal Solvents covers the importance of using a liquid crystal solvent in NMR to derive nuclear dipolar spin-spin coupling constants. This book is composed of ten chapters, and begins with a brief description of the features and benefits of liquid crystal in NMR spectroscopic analysis. The succeeding chapters deal with the mode of operation of nuclear spin Hamiltonian for partially oriented molecules and the analysis of NMR spectra of partially oriented molecules, as well as the determination of rigid molecule structure. These topics are followed by discussions on internal motion studies, NMR spectra from quadpolar nuclei, and the anisotropy in nuclear spin-spin coupling. The final chapters review the theoretical and experimental studies on the anisotropy in chemical shifts, nematic rotation, and the nuclear magnetic double resonance. This book will prove useful to analytical chemists.
