Summary

Matlab SimPowerSystems is a modern design tool that allows scientists and engineers to rapidly and easily build models that simulate power systems. Not only can you draw the circuit topology rapidly, but your analysis of the circuit can include interactions with mechanical, thermal, control, and other disciplines. The paper covers some case studies that provide detailed, realistic examples of how to use SimPowerSystems in power system analysis. The following types of studies are covered on the paper:
1. Thyristor-Based Static Var Compensator: Study the steady-state and dynamic performance of a static var compensator (SVC) on a transmission system.
2. Transient Stability of a Power System with SVC and PSS: Study of the application of static var compensator (SVC) and power system stabilizers (PSS) to improve transient stability and power oscillation damping of the system.
3. GTO-Based STATCOM: Study the steady-state and dynamic performance of a static synchronous compensator (STATCOM) on a transmission system.  
4. Control of load flow using UPFC: Study the steady-state and dynamic performance of a unified power flow controller (UPFC).
5. Variable-frequency Induction Motor Drive: Study of a PWM inverter is used as a variable-voltage, variable-frequency source to drive an induction motor in variable-speed operation.
6. Chopper-Fed DC Motor Drive: Study of a DC motor drive with armature voltage controlled by a GTO thyristor chopper.
7. VSC-Based HVDC Link: Modeling of a forced-commutated voltage-sourced converter high-voltage direct current (VSC-HVDC) transmission link.

    A “well written and easily comprehended” guide to the microbes in our midst—and how to protect kids from infections (Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal). We’re all too aware that the world is full of germs—viruses old and new, parasites, fungi, bacteria that sometimes evolve into antibiotic-resistant superbugs. But the truth is that while infections are harmful, not all germs are bad. In fact, some of them we can’t live without. In this book a pediatrician who specializes in infectious diseases gives parents the clear information they need to keep their families healthy—without panicking or going overboard. Dr. Athena P. Kourtis sorts through topics including antibiotics, vaccines, hygiene, health foods, and home remedies, and identifies which rules to follow—and which ones to ignore. She says: • No to overprotecting your children from germs • No to antimicrobial soaps and cleaning products at home • No to over-prescribed antibiotics • Yes to strategic hand washing • Yes to being conscious of germs and the pathways they use • Yes to vaccines She offers tips for protecting children at home, in school, at meals, on the playground, on trips, while playing sports—and answers questions that commonly worry parents. How many times should you wash prewashed spinach? (At least twice.) Does getting enough sleep help fight infection? (Yes.) Are pre-sliced foods more likely to spread infection? (They are.) This comprehensive guide is the first step in helping you and your child stay afloat in the microbial sea.

    A famed zookeeper reflects on his lifelong love of animals—and his decision to build them a home—in this memoir by the author of the Corfu Trilogy. The first word Gerald Durrell could say with any clarity was “zoo.” Animals were his passion. His early years in India were full of routine visits to the local zoo, and if his nursemaid attempted to deviate from this routine, the result was usually a tantrum.   Years later, when Durrell decided to set up the Jersey Wildlife Preservation Trust—which would later become the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust—he didn’t want it to be like other zoos. He didn’t want a place where animals were simply imprisoned, where parents reluctantly brought their children to get sick on ice cream. More than a place for entertainment, Durrell’s zoo needed to be a place for education, research, and conservation. But achieving his goal would force him to question if wild animals really did belong in the care of humans.  The Stationary Ark is an entertaining and thoughtful look at a career in zookeeping from the man who inspired acclaimed Masterpiece production The Durrells in Corfu, which aired on public television.  This ebook features an illustrated biography of Gerald Durrell including rare photos from the author’s estate.

    First of all, why is the title of this book about mining Asteroid Belts? When we learned about the Asteroid Belt when studying the Solar System in school there was only one Asteroid Belt. The one in orbit between Mars and Jupiter. With the discovery of the Trojan Asteroids in Jovian orbit and in orbit ahead and behind of the planet Jupiter, we now have more than one belt of asteroids around the Sun. If we include the Kuiper Belt out beyond Pluto, there are many additional thousands of asteroids to consider. There are also near Earth Asteroids which orbit close to and sometimes hit our planet. So there are many thousands of Asteroids in the Solar System and this book is focused on how do we get to them, live on them, and mine them. There are several known types of Asteroids, and the metal ones have the most promise to provide rare materials to fuel Earth’s industries. Also, how would these metals be processed and sent back to Earth? What would traveling to and living on Asteroids be like? And what life support systems would be needed?

    Hard to imagine now, but there have been times and places where just wearing sandals could get you labeled as being in rebellion against established society. Two such places were Berkeley, California in the early 1960s and Millthorpe, England in the 1880s. Millthorpe was home to Edward Carpenter (1844-1929), an English socialist poet, philosopher, and activist who abandoned his upper crust life and university sinecure to grow market vegetables and handcraft sandals for a living. Carpenter’s search for the well-lived life, his passions and concerns resonate uncannily with the mood of long ago Berkeley. In this frank memoir, Carpenter explores how he “escaped from the domination of Civilization in its two most fatal and much-detested forms, respectability and cheap intellectualism.”   - Summary by Sue Anderson
