'You will most certainly find answers to some of your toughest design problems between the covers of this volume' Steven H Leibson, Editor in Chief, EDN Magazine. Since its first appearance in 1956, EDN has established itself as the clear leader in the provision of electronics information, with a combined circulation in the USA, Europe and Asia of over 150,000 copies every fortnight. This is an annotated, indexed and cross referenced collection of work from the magazine for electronic designers. A collected volume of the best articles from the extensive files of Ian Hickman was published in 1991. The articles provide a wealth of information on components, equipment, circuits, systems and standards that prove to be extremely popular and useful for practising electronics engineers. This second volume of collected articles includes subjects not covered in the first, and more recent items, to provide a completely up-to-date compilation, covering subjects including analog and digital circuits, test and measurement, software and algorithms. The articles are cross-referenced and indexed for ease of use. Many of the circuits are from the popular 'design ideas' section where readers submit their own designs. Longer review articles written by the magazine staff are also included.

The use of electric power substations in generation, transmission, and distribution remains one of the most challenging and exciting areas of electric power engineering. Recent technological developments have had a tremendous impact on all aspects of substation design and operation. With 80% of its chapters completely revised and two brand-new chapters on energy storage and Smart Grids, Electric Power Substations Engineering, Third Edition provides an extensive updated overview of substations, serving as a reference and guide for both industry and academia. Contributors have written each chapter with detailed design information for electric power engineering professionals and other engineering professionals (e.g., mechanical, civil) who want an overview or specific information on this challenging and important area. This book: Emphasizes the practical application of the technology Includes extensive use of graphics and photographs to visually convey the book’s concepts Provides applicable IEEE industry standards in each chapter Is written by industry experts who have an average of 25 to 30 years of industry experience Presents a new chapter addressing the key role of the substation in Smart Grids Editor John McDonald and this very impressive group of contributors cover all aspects of substations, from the initial concept through design, automation, and operation. The book’s chapters—which delve into physical and cyber-security, commissioning, and energy storage—are written as tutorials and provide references for further reading and study. As with the other volumes in the Electric Power Engineering Handbook series, this book supplies a high level of detail and, more importantly, a tutorial style of writing and use of photographs and graphics to help the reader understand the material. Several chapter authors are members of the IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES) Substations Committee and are the actual experts who are developing the standards that govern all aspects of substations. As a result, this book contains the most recent technological developments in industry practice and standards. Watch John D. McDonald talk about his book A volume in the Electric Power Engineering Handbook, Third Edition.

There’s never been a better time to “be prepared.” Matthew Stein’s comprehensive primer on sustainable living skills—from food and water to shelter and energy to first-aid and crisis-management skills—prepares you to embark on the path toward sustainability. But unlike any other book, Stein not only shows you how to live “green” in seemingly stable times, but to live in the face of potential disasters, lasting days or years, coming in the form of social upheaval, economic meltdown, or environmental catastrophe. When Technology Fails covers the gamut. You’ll learn how to start a fire and keep warm if you’ve been left temporarily homeless, as well as the basics of installing a renewable energy system for your home or business. You’ll learn how to find and sterilize water in the face of utility failure, as well as practical information for dealing with water-quality issues even when the public tap water is still flowing. You’ll learn alternative techniques for healing equally suited to an era of profit-driven malpractice as to situations of social calamity. Each chapter (a survey of the risks to the status quo; supplies and preparation for short- and long-term emergencies; emergency measures for survival; water; food; shelter; clothing; first aid, low-tech medicine, and healing; energy, heat, and power; metalworking; utensils and storage; low-tech chemistry; and engineering, machines, and materials) offers the same approach, describing skills for self-reliance in good times and bad. Fully revised and expanded—the first edition was written pre-9/11 and pre-Katrina, when few Americans took the risk of social disruption seriously—When Technology Fails ends on a positive, proactive note with a new chapter on "Making the Shift to Sustainability," which offers practical suggestions for changing our world on personal, community and global levels.

Since its inception, the Tutorial Guides in Electronic Engineering series has met with great success among both instructors and students. Designed for first and second year undergraduate courses, each text provides a concise list of objectives at the beginning of every chapter, key definitions and formulas highlighted in margin notes, and references to other texts in the series. Electronic Components and Technology begins with an introduction to electronic interconnection technology, followed by a concise study of integrated circuits, their fabrication, packaging, and handling. The next two chapters look at various components, including power supplies, resistors, capacitors, and inductors. The author devotes considerable attention to parasitic electrical effects, including the non-ideal properties of passive components, heat and its management, and parasitic electromagnetic effects. He also emphasizes good engineering practice in relation to reliability and maintainability--two important aspects of design often overlooked by circuit designers--and includes a chapter on safety. This volume not only builds a solid foundation in properties, behavior, and use of electronic components, but also opens students' eyes to the practical problems encountered in electronics engineering practice.
