With a global focus, it has been updated to include sections on new technology and concepts, new legislation and the current PV market.
Also providing information on current developments in system design, economic analysis, operation and maintenance of PV systems, as well as new software tools, hybrid and tracking systems.
An essential manual for installers, engineers and architects, it details every subject necessary for successful project implementation, from the technical design to the legal and marketing issues of PV installation.
All the expert guidance you need to understand, build, and operate GPS receivers<br> <br> The Second Edition of this acclaimed publication enables readers to understand and apply the complex operation principles of global positioning system (GPS) receivers. Although GPS receivers are widely used in everyday life to aid in positioning and navigation, this is the only text that is devoted to complete coverage of their operation principles. The author, one of the foremost authorities in the GPS field, presents the material from a software receiver viewpoint, an approach that helps readers better understand operation and that reflects the forecasted integration of GPS receivers into such everyday devices as cellular telephones. Concentrating on civilian C/A code, the book provides the tools and information needed to understand and exploit all aspects of receiver technology as well as relevant navigation schemes:<br> * Overview of GPS basics and the constellation of satellites that comprise the GPS system<br> * Detailed examination of GPS signal structure, acquisition, and tracking<br> * Step-by-step presentation of the mathematical formulas for calculating a user's position<br> * Demonstration of the use of computer programs to run key equations<br> * Instructions for developing hardware to collect digitized data for a software GPS receiver<br> * Complete chapter demonstrating a GPS receiver following a signal flow to determine a user's position<br> <br> The Second Edition of this highly acclaimed text has been greatly expanded, including three new chapters:<br> * Acquisition of weak signals<br> * Tracking of weak signals<br> * GPS receiver related subjects<br> <br> Following the author's expert guidance and easy-to-follow style, engineers and scientists learn all that is needed to understand, build, and operate GPS receivers. The book's logical flow from basic concepts to applications makes it an excellent textbook for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in electrical engineering, wireless communications, and computer science.
To satisfy demands for software systems that collect, organize and utilize pollution prevention auditing, design and implementation, hundreds of software companies have developed and are marketing software systems that perform these functions.
This book is an exhaustive survey and evaluation of the hundreds of pollution prevention software systems and serves as a practical guide for the buyer and user, as well as the managers and compliance professionals that need to know the capabilities and limitations of these systems.
The handbook opens with an overview of chemical tracking systems from the regulator's perspective, which is the driving force for implementation of such systems. The introductory chapter emphasizes the impossibility of true chemical tracking in real-world manufacturing operations, but the true need for chemical management systems.
Because cost and financial control is key to the success of pollution prevention, the handbook then presents the capabilities of available systems. The book focuses on applications such as risk assessment, remediation systems, chemical tracking/management, post pollution prevention, financial analysis, cost impact analysis; and finally, tools for waste reduction planning and control.
This is a book that provides readers with a variety of articles focusing on everything from education, self improvement, to modern day uses for the study of history. Dale Schlundt's book focuses on these topics and more, while using them to give thought provoking points as to how we can approach life in a positive, but vigilant manner.
Countless ants transport and deposit seeds and thereby influence the survival, death, and evolution of many plant species. In higher plants, seed dispersal by ants (myrmecochory) has appeared many times independently in different lineages. More than 3000 plant species are known to utilize ant assistance to be planted. Myrmecochory is a very interesting and rather enigmatic form of mutualistic ant-plant associations. This phenomenon is extremely complex, because there are hundreds of ant species connected with hundreds of plant species. This book effectively combines a thorough approach to investigating morphological and physiological adaptations of plants with elegant field experiments on the behaviour of ants. This monograph is a first attempt at collecting information about morphology, ecology and phenology of ants and plants from one ecosystem. The book gives readers a panoramic view of the hidden, poorly-known interrelations not only between pairs of ants and plant species, but also between species communities in the ecosystem. The authors have considered not just one aspect of animal-plant relationships, but have tried to show them in all their complexity. Some aspects of the ant-plant interactions described in the book may be of interest to botanists, others to zoologists or ecologists, but the entire work is an excellent example of the marriage of these biological disciplines.
