Single Phase UPS Based On Z-source Inverter

Single Phase UPS Based On Z-source Inverter

Автор:

In This book use for Uninterruptible power supplies (UPSs) are widely used to supply critical loads, such as airline computers and life-support systems in hospitals, providing protection against power failure or anomalies of power-line voltage.In general, there are two types of traditional single phase UPSs. The first one couples a battery bank to a half or full-bridge inverter with a low-frequency transformer. In this type of UPSs, the ac output voltage is higher than that of the battery bank; thus, a step-up transformer is required to boost voltage. Due to the presence of the step-up transformer, the inverter current is much higher than the load current, causing high current stress on the switches of the inverter. The transformer also increases the weight, volume, and cost of the systemIn this type of UPSs, the additional booster is needed, leading to high cost and low efficiency. The controlling of the switches in the booster also complicates the system. The dead time in the pulse width-modulation (PWM). The proposed method is also implemented on hardware by using power electronic devices such as MOSFET and PIC controller for production of control signals.

ДЕРЕВО КАК ОБРАЗ ЧЕЛОВЕКА — новый оригинальный набор карт. С деревом у нас связано множество ассоциаций: древо жизни, генеалогическое древо, новогодняя елка, лавровая ветвь… «У лукоморья дуб зеленый», «Но нельзя рябине к дубу перебраться», «Когда деревья были большими», «И на камнях растут деревья»… Можно продолжать почти до бесконечности, настолько образ дерева широко представлен в литературных, песенных, поэтических, устно-языковых образах, сопровождающих нашу жизнь и формирующих нашу ментальность. В набор входят: 80 карт с изображениями (фотографиями) 32 карты со словами инструкция. В набор входят фотографии с изображениями деревьев и маленькие карточки со словами и словосочетаниями. Все это — инструмент работы практического психолога, называемый метафорическими картами. Карты могут использоваться в консультировании, психотерапии, коучинге, в групповой и индивидуальной работе с детьми и взрослыми. Размер карты с изображениями: 10 см х 7 см. Размер карты со словами: 10 см х 3,5 см. Инструкция представлена в виде двусторонней раскладки.

Insect Pheromones: Their Role and Status In Insect Pest Management

Insect Pheromones: Their Role and Status In Insect Pest Management

Автор:

Insect Pest Management can be ensured successfully by depolying sex pheromones. Since decades, researchers have conducted many experiments with insect pheromones in order to improve their efficacy. For instance, eggplant shoot and fruit borer have been successfully mass trapped through water trap and that technology has been adopted by farmers.However, we are still struggling to decode the factors influencing on response of pest to pheromone. Knowledge on Pheromone status and its role in IPM should be shared among the researchers towards technology development in near future.

Testing Optimal Multistage Relaxation

Testing Optimal Multistage Relaxation

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is used in almost all aspects of the aerospace industry today. It involves calculating flow interactions between solid boundaries, such as flat plates or airfoils, and liquid or gaseous mediums. The CFD code currently being used is a simple computer code algorithm consisting of time marching through millions of calculations and numerous iterations. This report involves a comparison of this current code and a newer version of the same code which involves periodically retrieving a set of solver coefficients from a database of settings optimized for fast convergence. This process enables the computer to solve these calculations using the optimum variables and leads to a shorter computational time frame. Considering how a full CFD run through of a fully assembled aircraft can take weeks, any time saved leads to a reduced bottom line and a faster design and build time for the aerospace industry.

Teaching Health Literacy in Conjunction with ESL

Teaching Health Literacy in Conjunction with ESL

Автор:

In the United States, many English as a Second Language (ESL) speakers have low levels of health literacy. The purpose of this project is to create a curriculum that ESL teachers can implement to improve the English language proficiency and the health literacy skills of adult ESL speakers in the United States. The curriculum is designed for teachers who work with ESL speakers who may have trouble obtaining, processing, communicating, or managing health information due to language barriers.
