Distribution System Modeling and Analysis
Updated to reflect the latest changes and advances in the field, Distribution System Modeling and Analysis, Third Edition again illustrates methods that will ensure the most accurate possible results in computational modeling for electric power distribution systems. With the same simplified approach of previous editions, this book clearly explains the principles and mathematics behind system models, also discussing the smart grid concept and its special benefits. However, this volume adds a crucial element not found in previous editions. The first two books developed models for all components but focused less on how to actually implement those models on a computer for planning and for real-time analysis. This book includes numerous models of components and several practical examples, to demonstrate how engineers can apply and customize computer programs to help them plan and operate systems. It also covers approximation methods to help users interpret computer program feedback, so they recognize when a result is not what it should be. Another improvement is the book's earlier introduction (in chapter 4) of the modified ladder iterative technique. The author explains the need for this method-which is used in most distribution analysis programs-detailing how it is applied and why it is among the most powerful options. Concluding with a detailed summary of presented topics that readers have come to expect, this edition provides useful problems, references, and assignments that help users apply Mathcad(R) and WIndmil programs to put their new learning into practice. An invaluable tool for engineering students and professionals worldwide, this book explores cutting-edge advances in modeling, simulation, and analysis of distribution systems that can ensure the continued dispersal of safe, reliable energy.

Compressive Sensing for Urban Radar
With the emergence of compressive sensing and sparse signal reconstruction, approaches to urban radar have shifted toward relaxed constraints on signal sampling schemes in time and space, and to effectively address logistic difficulties in data acquisition. Traditionally, these challenges have hindered high resolution imaging by restricting both bandwidth and aperture, and by imposing uniformity and bounds on sampling rates. Compressive Sensing for Urban Radar is the first book to focus on a hybrid of two key areas: compressive sensing and urban sensing. It explains how reliable imaging, tracking, and localization of indoor targets can be achieved using compressed observations that amount to a tiny percentage of the entire data volume. Capturing the latest and most important advances in the field, this state-of-the-art text: Covers both ground-based and airborne synthetic aperture radar (SAR) and uses different signal waveforms Demonstrates successful applications of compressive sensing for target detection and revealing building interiors Describes problems facing urban radar and highlights sparse reconstruction techniques applicable to urban environments Deals with both stationary and moving indoor targets in the presence of wall clutter and multipath exploitation Provides numerous supporting examples using real data and computational electromagnetic modeling Featuring 13 chapters written by leading researchers and experts, Compressive Sensing for Urban Radar is a useful and authoritative reference for radar engineers and defense contractors, as well as a seminal work for graduate students and academia.

As with most things, simulation is best learned through practice-but explosive growth in the field requires a new learning approach. A response to changes in the field, Simulation of Dynamic Systems with MATLAB(R) and Simulink(R), Second Edition has been extensively updated to help readers build an in-depth and intuitive understanding of basic concepts, mathematical tools, and the common principles of various simulation models for different phenomena. Includes an abundance of case studies, real-world examples, homework problems, and equations to develop a practical understanding of concepts Accomplished experts Harold Klee and Randal Allen take readers through a gradual and natural progression of important topics in simulation, introducing advanced concepts only after they construct complete examples using fundamental methods. Presented exercises incorporate MATLAB(R) and Simulink(R)-including access to downloadable M-files and model files-enabling both students and professionals to gain experience with these industry-standard tools and more easily design, implement, and adjust simulation models in their particular field of study. More universities are offering courses-as well as masters and Ph.D programs-in both continuous-time and discrete-time simulation, promoting a new interdisciplinary focus that appeals to undergraduates and beginning graduates from a wide range of fields. Ideal for such courses, this classroom-tested introductory text presents a flexible, multifaceted approach through which simulation can play a prominent role in validating system design and training personnel involved.

For decades biology has focused on decoding cellular processes one gene at a time, but many of the most pressing biological questions, as well as diseases such as cancer and heart disease, are related to complex systems involving the interaction of hundreds, or even thousands, of gene products and other factors. How do we begin to understand this complexity? Fundamentals of Systems Biology: From Synthetic Circuits to Whole-cell Models introduces students to methods they can use to tackle complex systems head-on, carefully walking them through studies that comprise the foundation and frontier of systems biology. The first section of the book focuses on bringing students quickly up to speed with a variety of modeling methods in the context of a synthetic biological circuit. This innovative approach builds intuition about the strengths and weaknesses of each method and becomes critical in the book's second half, where much more complicated network models are addressed-including transcriptional, signaling, metabolic, and even integrated multi-network models. The approach makes the work much more accessible to novices (undergraduates, medical students, and biologists new to mathematical modeling) while still having much to offer experienced modelers--whether their interests are microbes, organs, whole organisms, diseases, synthetic biology, or just about any field that investigates living systems.

See What's New in the Fifth Edition Expanded coverage of embedded systems, mobile processors, and cloud computing Material for the Architecture and Organization part of the 2013 IEEE/ACM Draft Curricula for Computer Science and Engineering Updated commercial machine architecture examples The backbone of the book is a description of the complete design of a simple but complete hypothetical computer. The author then details the architectural features of contemporary computer systems (selected from Intel, MIPS, ARM, Motorola, Cray and various microcontrollers, etc.) as enhancements to the structure of the simple computer. He also introduces performance enhancements and advanced architectures including networks, distributed systems, GRIDs, and cloud computing. Computer organization deals with providing just enough details on the operation of the computer system for sophisticated users and programmers. Often, books on digital systems' architecture fall into four categories: logic design, computer organization, hardware design, and system architecture. This book captures the important attributes of these four categories to present a comprehensive text that includes pertinent hardware, software, and system aspects.

Through-the-Wall Radar Imaging
Through-the-wall radar imaging (TWRI) allows police, fire and rescue personnel, first responders, and defense forces to detect, identify, classify, and track the whereabouts of humans and moving objects. Electromagnetic waves are considered the most effective at achieving this objective, yet advances in this multi-faceted and multi-disciplinary technology require taking phenomenological issues into consideration and must be based on a solid understanding of the intricacies of EM wave interactions with interior and exterior objects and structures. Providing a broad overview of the myriad factors involved, namely size, weight, mobility, acquisition time, aperture distribution, power, bandwidth, standoff distance, and, most importantly, reliable performance and delivery of accurate information, Through-the-Wall Radar Imaging examines this technology from the algorithmic, modeling, experimentation, and system design perspectives. It begins with coverage of the electromagnetic properties of walls and building materials, and discusses techniques in the design of antenna elements and array configurations, beamforming concepts and issues, and the use of antenna array with collocated and distributed apertures. Detailed chapters discuss several suitable waveforms inverse scattering approaches and revolve around the relevance of physical-based model approaches in TWRI along with theoretical and experimental research in 3D building tomography using microwave remote sensing, high-frequency asymptotic modeling methods, synthetic aperture radar (SAR) techniques, impulse radars, airborne radar imaging of multi-floor buildings strategies for target detection, and detection of concealed targets. The book concludes with a discussion of how the Doppler principle can be used to measure motion at a very fine level of detail. The book provides a deep understanding of the challenges of TWRI, stressing its multidisciplinary and phenomenological nature. The breadth and depth of topics covered presents a highly detailed treatment of this potentially life-saving technology.
