  • Tensorial Analysis of Networks (TAN) Modelling for PCB Signal Integrity and EMC Analysis
  • This book describes a fast, accurate and flexible modelling methodology for PCBs. The model uses the concept of tensorial analysis of networks (TAN) based on Kron's and Kron-Branin's methods adapted for the EMC use by O.Maurice. The TAN approach is applied to the PCB SI and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) analysis. Each chapter presents a methodology consisting of the problem formulation, classical circuit description, TAN primitive elements, TAN graph topology elaboration, problem metric mathematization and the posed-problem resolution based on Python and Matlab routine algorithms. This methodical approach has been applied to the following topics: basic knowledge to practice TAN for PCB SI/PI/EMC investigation; PCB primitive components analysis with TAN; analytical calculation of PCB trace Z/Y/T/S matrices with TAN approach; fast S-parameter Kron-Branin's modelling of rectangular wave guide (RWG) structure via mesh impedance reduction; time domain TAN modelling of PCB system with Kron's method; direct time-domain analysis with TAN method for PCB modelling; coupling between EM field and multilayer PCB with MKME; conducted emissions (CE) EMC TAN modelling; PCB conducted susceptibility (CS) EMC TAN modelling; PCB radiated susceptibility (RS) EMC TAN modelling; TAN model of loop probe coupling onto shielded coaxial short-cable; nonlinear behaviour conduced EMC model of an ADC based mixed PCB under radio frequency interference (RFI); far-field prediction combining simulations with near-field measurements for EMI assessment of PCBs; and element of information for numerical modelling on PCB. With its highly systematic approach to addressing TAN modelling methods, this book provides key information and novel solutions to the designers and manufacturers of analogue, RF, digital and mixed signal electronic circuits and systems.

  • Analysis and Design of CMOS Clocking Circuits for Low Phase Noise
  • As electronics continue to become faster, smaller and more efficient, development and research around clocking signals and circuits has accelerated to keep pace. This book bridges the gap between the classical theory of clocking circuits and recent technological advances, making it a useful guide for newcomers to the field, and offering an opportunity for established researchers to broaden and update their knowledge of current trends. The book begins by introducing the theory of Fourier transform and power spectral density, then builds on this foundation in chapter 2 to define phase noise and jitter. Chapter 3 discusses the theory and primary implementation of CMOS oscillators, including LC oscillators and ring oscillators, and chapter 4 introduces techniques for analysing their phase noise and jitter. Chapters 5-7 cover conventional clocking circuits; phase-locked loop (PLL) and delay-locked loop (DLL), which suppress the phase noise of CMOS oscillators. The building blocks of conventional PLLs/DLLs are described, and the dynamics of the PLL/DLL negative feedback loop explored in depth, with practical design examples. Chapters 8-11 address state-of-the-art circuit techniques for phase noise suppression, presenting the principles and practical issues in circuit implementation of sub-sampling phase detection techniques, all-digital PLL/DLL, injection-locked oscillator, and clock multiplying DLL. Extensive survey and discussion on state-of-the-art clocking circuits and benchmarks are covered in an Appendix.

  • Monitoring and Control using Synchrophasors in Power Systems with Renewables
  • With the integration of more distributed or aggregated renewables, and the wide utilization of power electronic devices, modern power systems are facing new stability and security challenges, such as the weakly damped oscillation caused by wind farms connected through long distance transmission lines, the frequency stability problem induced by the reduction of inertia and the voltage stability issue resulting from the interactions between transmission systems and dynamic loads. Meanwhile, synchronized phasor measurement technology developed very fast in the last decade, and more phasor measurement units (PMUs) and wide area measurement systems (WAMSs) have been deployed. These provide more insights into the system dynamics and approaches to overcoming the new challenges. This book addresses the emerging concepts, methodologies and applications of wide area monitoring, control and protection in power systems with integrated large scale renewables. Chapters cover monitoring, modelling and validation, control, and data mining with an emphasis on synchrophasor technology, and experiences with real power grids.
