Important factor in political decision-making is a public opinion as well. Therefore, it is very important to raise global ecological awareness and wider public education regarding ecology. Goal of this book is to bring closer to the readers new drive technologies that are intended to environment and nature protection. The book presents modern technique achievements and technologies applied in the implementation of electric vehicles. Special attention was paid to energy efficiency of EV's. Also today's trends, mathematical models and computer design elements of future cars are presented....
Geo-electrical tomographical software plays a crucial role in geophysical research. However, imported software is expensive and does not provide much customizability, which is essential for more advanced geophysical study. Besides, these programs are unable to exploit the full potential of modern hardware, so the running time is inadequate for large-scale geophysical surveys. It is therefore an essential task to develop domestic software for overcoming all these problems.
In No 216 of "The Medical Record" (Dec. 15th, 1874) was published an article written by me, entitled "On
some of the Uses of Galvanic and Faradic Baths."
The interest manifested in the subject, as evidenced by numerous letters of inquiry since received from
physicians in almost all parts of the United States, and some in Europe, has induced me to write the present
treatise, in which I have endeavored to present to the profession, as far as lies in my power, all that is
necessary to a full comprehension of the electro-balneological treatment.

The idea of combining electrical engines and internal combustion (IC) engines has a long history. In 1901 J. Lohner and F. Porsche had already presented a ﬁrst hybrid electric vehicle (HEV). But this revolutionary concept did not reach full maturity because the electrical components were not developed. The main concern was the battery, a high-performing battery system with acceptable long-term endurance was not available at the time. The battery of the vehicle shown in Figure 1 had a weight of not less than 1800 kg. It was not until the end of the twentieth century that HEVs became a...
There are different degrees of hybridization from microhybrids to extended-range electric vehicles (E-REVs). The complete range between nonhybridized vehicles and pure battery electric vehicles (EVs) is covered. Depending on the degree of hybridization, there are different functionalities available. Table 1 shows the functionality for full hybrid electric vehicles (full HEVs), plug-in hybrid electric-vehicles (PHEV Full HEV, full heavy electric vehicles; PHEVs) with 10 or 40 miles electric-only range, and E-REVs.
Writing a book about a subject that is so dear to me has been the greatest pleasure.
All the hard work and nudging from my editor to get finished have been worth it.
Back in 1996, I had an idea that I had never seen before. Well, I had seen it, but not
the size and style of the creation I had in mind. I wanted to build a fully electric
motorcycle, and not just any motorcycle, but a full-sized motorcycle along the lines
of a cruiser or large touring bike. I wanted to build a bike that had power, speed,
and performance. After all, I...

Abstract—In this paper, we consider cost-effective designs of wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) optical switching networks for current and future generation communication systems. Based on different target applications: we categorize WDM optical switching networks into two connection models: the wavelength-based model and the ﬁberlink-based model. Most of existing WDM optical switching networks belong to the ﬁrst category.
IT IS IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND SOME SIMPLE, GENERAL PHYSICS PRINCIPLES
in order to have a full grasp of electricity and electronics. It is not necessary to know
In science, you can talk about qualitative things or about quantitative things, the
“what” versus the “how much.” For now, you need only be concerned about the “what.”
The “how much” will come later.
If each voltage is connected to a circuit with the same power factor and the three currents return along the
same conductor, then the vector sum of the three return currents is zero. Thus instead of three full sized
return cables, only one of smaller size is needed. If none of the load is single phase, then the neutral is not
needed at all. High voltage supplies are nearly always three phase without a neutral conductor. There is a
great economy in distribution costs if the electricity can be supplied in three phases. ...
This is the seventh report by the National Research Council Standing Committee
to Review the Research Program of the Partnership for a New Generation
of Vehicles (PNGV). The PNGV program is a cooperative research and development
(R&D) program between the federal government and the United States
Council for Automotive Research (USCAR), whose members are DaimlerChrysler
Corporation, Ford Motor Company, and General Motors Corporation (GM).
The clients’ decision to choose the cascade system
was driven by their desire to maintain the façade of
this sleek iconic building, and with modern apartments
increasingly using internal service risers the cascade
system provides the perfect solution.
The inbuilt microprocessor within the boiler enables
adjustment of fan speeds to suit flue conditions
and provide a balanced boiler and flue system.
These and all subsequent regressions include our full array of demographic and time
controls, but we only report the distance coefficients for the sake of brevity.12 All
regressions report robust standard errors, which are adjusted for possible correlation
between the error terms of observations drawn from the same household.
The first column of Table 2 summarizes the relationship between distance and
diary week spending. Diary week spending declines significantly over the pay period at a
rate of 0.8 percent per day. Over the entire pay period this implies a substantial decline.
The problem breaks down into two parts: deﬁning
the clusters (i.e., a list of members for each family)
and building multiple alignments of the members.
Previous approaches to construct comprehensive fam-
ily databases have either concentrated on aligning
short conserved regions,
6–8 often starting from the
manually constructed clusters in Prosite,
9 or full
domain alignments using either clusters that were
derived manually from PIR2 or automatically.
issue here is whether to aim for conserved regions
only or whole domain alignments.
This study was aimed to find out the frequency of sputum positive Acid Fast Bacilli
(AFB) cases among pulmonary tuberculosis patients and to determine those patients who are the
potential source of transmitting infection. Methods: This study was conducted in four medical units
of Khyber Teaching Hospital, Peshawar and Chest Unit, Ayub Teaching Hospital, Abbottabad in
collaboration with the pathology unit of Khyber Teaching Hospital, Peshawar, and Kohat Institute of
Medical Sciences, Kohat.
Topology Control in Wireless Ad Hoc and Sensor Networks makes the case for topology control and provides an exhaustive coverage of TC techniques in wireless ad hoc and sensor networks, considering both stationary networks, to which most of the existing solutions are tailored, and mobile networks. The author introduces a new taxonomy of topology control and gives a full explication of the applications and challenges of this important topic.

There is, of course, some potential overlap within these sub‐sectors, and some activities could fall
within more than one of the three main categories. For example, Additional Energy Sources could
potentially fall within the Renewable Energy sector, but has been include within Emerging Low Carbon
because it includes mainly new energy sources and those that are still in development (such as
hydrogen fuel cells).
