This comprehensive reference/text explains the development and principles of operation, modelling, and analysis of switch-mode power supplies (SMPS)-highlighting conversion efficiency, size, and steady state/transient regulation characteristics.;Covering the practical design techniques of SMPS,this book - reveals how to develop specific models of circuits and components for simulation and design purposes; explains both the computer simulation of the switching behaviours of dc-to-dc converters and the modelling of linear and nonlinear circuit components; deals with the modelling and simulation of the low-frequency behaviours of converters (including current-controlled converters and converters with multiple outputs) and regulators; describes computer-aided design (CAD) techniques as applied to converters and regulators; introduces the principles and design of quasi-resonant and resonant converters; provides details on SPICE, a circuit simulator package used to calculate electrical circuit behaviour.;Containing over 1000 helpful drawings, equations, and tables, this is a valuable reference for circuit design, electrical, and electronics engineers, and serves as an excellent text for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in these disciplines.
Another morning waking up from a dead sleep to what seems to be turning into a daily ritual: vomiting into the wastebasket I have learned to keep at my bedside. Waking up from the horrible dreams I cant seem to control. Nightmares of the face of the man I was married to for twenty-seven years, never aware of the total evilness inside of the person I trusted not only as a husband but also as a father to our six children. Unable to control during sleep, the pictures brought to mind match the stories recently told and confessed. This cant be happening to me or my family!
Childhood and Society charts the emergence of the conceptual and institutional divisions between adult 'human beings' and child 'human becomings' over the course of the modern era. It then examines the contemporary economic and ideological trends that are eroding the foundations of these divisions. The consequences of this age of uncertainty are examined through an assessment of sociological theories of childhood and through a survey of children's varied positions in a globalizing and highly mediated social world.
