Air conditioning refers to the cooling and dehumidification of indoor air for thermal comfort. This requires systems for heating, venting and air conditioning (HVAC). This book discusses the application and performance on thermal comfort, indoor air quality and energy efficiency of a variety of room air distribution modes.
The ASHRAE Pocket Guide serves as a ready, offline reference for engineers without easy access to complete ASHRAE Handbook volumes. This ninth edition has been revised for 2017 to include updates from the four current volumes of the ASHRAE Handbook series, including the 2017 ASHRAE Handbook--Fundamentals, and from the 2013 and 2016 editions of ASHRAE Standards 15, 34, 55, 62.1, 62.2, and 90.1.
This new resource provides a comprehensive and concise introduction of the underpinnings and fundamentals of electrical circuits. Models, the limitations of models, and examples are clearly explained. The book examines circuits with static sources and explains how to reduce any circuit to a system of linear equations. Moreover, the book presents dynamic sources that exhibit transient phenomena that require the solution of linear differential equations.
Introduction to Electrical Measurements discusses the basic concept of the measurement systems along with the principles of electrical measurements. It includes the notion of instrumentation, electronic circuits, instrument transformers, AC bridges, and energy and power measurements. This book also discusses about the magnetic force and, analog and digital recorders. It provides the reader with the insights of different aspects of electrical measurements so as to understand notion of electrical measurements and learn about the transformers as well as recorders.
This comprehensive resource presents the fundamentals of power systems, including the theory, practical steps, and methods used in the design and management of energy systems. Readers are provided with a uniquely comprehensive derivation of power electronics and will find practical advice based on actual occurrences in the field using real life scenarios. This book offers a direct mathematical approach for models of the main components in an electrical power system. This resource gives insight into power transformer modeling, transmission line and cable modeling, transmission line load ability, power flows, and real and reactive power and frequency control. General fault studies in electrical power systems and state estimation in electrical power systems are also explored.
Now in its fourth edition, this respected text delivers a comprehensive introduction to the principles and practice of refrigeration.
