  • Renewable Energy from the Oceans: From wave, tidal and gradient systems to offshore wind and solar
  • There are many ways to harness the renewable and emissions-free energy available from the Earth's oceans. The technologies include wave energy, tidal and current energy, and energy from thermal and salinity gradients. In addition, offshore wind energy and marine (floating) solar arrays offer a possibility to exploit vast resources that are far larger than those available onshore. The potential capacities range from many hundreds of gigawatts to terawatts of generation. These technologies could contribute a significant part of the global electricity demand; they are particularly suitable for providing sustainable power to marine regions and island communities and nations. This book brings together contributions from international experts with academic and industry backgrounds to provide a systematic overview of ocean energy technologies, their readiness and modelling, as well as installation and grid connection technologies.

  • Variability, Scalability and Stability of Microgrids
  • A microgrid is a small network of electricity users with a local source of supply that is usually attached to a larger grid but can function independently. The interconnection of small scale generating units, such as PV and wind turbines, and energy storage systems, such as batteries, to a low voltage distribution grid involves three major challenges: variability, scalability, and stability. It must keep delivering reliable and stable power also when changing, or repairing, any component, or under varying wind and solar conditions. It also must be able to accept additional units, i.e. be scalable. This reference discusses these three challenges facing engineers and researchers in the field of power systems, covering topics such as demand side energy management, transactive energy, optimizing and sizing of microgrid components. Case studies and results provide illustrative examples in each chapter.

image of Data-Driven Modeling, Filtering and Control: Methods and applications
  • Data-Driven Modeling, Filtering and Control: Methods and applications
  • The scientific research in many engineering fields has been shifting from traditional first-principle-based to data-driven or evidence-based theories. The latter methods may enable better system design, based on more accurate and verifiable information. In the era of big data, IoT and cyber-physical systems, this subject is of growing importance, as data-driven approaches are key enablers to solve problems that could not be addressed by standard approaches. This book presents a number of innovative data-driven methodologies, complemented by significant application examples, to show the potential offered by the most recent advances in the field. Applicable across a range of disciplines, the topics discussed here will be of interest to scientists, engineers and students in automatic control and learning systems, automotive and aerospace engineering, electrical engineering and signal processing.

  • Wearable Technologies and Wireless Body Sensor Networks for Healthcare
  • Continuous advances in wearables, sensors and smart Wireless Body Area Network technologies have precipitated the development of new applications for on-, in- and body-to-body wearable communications for healthcare and sport monitoring. Progress in this cross-disciplinary field is further influenced by developments in radio communication, protocols, synchronization aspects, energy harvesting and storage solutions, and efficient processing techniques for smart antennas. This book covers various scenarios and solutions using sensor devices and systems for activity recognition and their applications, including wearable communication, smart sensing, RF propagation, and measurement. The authors illustrate conceptual aspects and applications, and provide a new vision in characterising wearable technologies and the need for interoperability. Energy harvesting within wearable solutions is a key issue addressed here as it helps increase energy efficiency and reliability in wearable antennas and sensor devices.

image of Self-Healing Materials: From fundamental concepts to advanced space and electronics applications
  • Self-Healing Materials: From fundamental concepts to advanced space and electronics applications
  • Self-healing materials are an emerging class of smart materials that are capable of repairing themselves from damage, either spontaneously or under a stimulus such as light, heat, or the application of a solvent. Intended for an audience of researchers in academia and industry, this book addresses a wide range of self-healing materials and processes, with emphasis on their performance in the space environment. This revised, expanded and updated second edition addresses the key concepts of selfhealing processes, from their occurrences in nature through to recent advances in academic and industrial research. It includes a detailed description and explanation of a wide range of materials and applications such as polymeric, anticorrosion, smart paints, and carbon nanotubes. Emphasis is given to performance in the space environment, addressing vacuum, thermal gradients, mechanical vibrations, and space radiation. Innovations in controlling self-healing materials for space debris mitigation are also covered. The book concludes with a comprehensive outlook into the future developments and applications of self-healing materials.

  • Big Data Recommender Systems - Volume 1: Algorithms, Architectures, Big Data, Security and Trust
  • First designed to generate personalized recommendations to users in the 90s, recommender systems apply knowledge discovery techniques to users' data to suggest information, products, and services that best match their preferences. In recent decades, we have seen an exponential increase in the volumes of data, which has introduced many new challenges. Divided into two volumes, this comprehensive set covers recent advances, challenges, novel solutions, and applications in big data recommender systems. Volume 1 contains 14 chapters addressing foundations, algorithms and architectures, approaches for big data, and trust and security measures. Volume 2 covers a broad range of application paradigms for recommender systems over 22 chapters.
