eIoT: The Development of the Energy Internet of Things in Energy Infrastructure by Steffi O. Muhanji (Springer) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 37 minutes ago

This open access book explores the collision between the sustainable energy transition and the Internet of Things (IoT). In that regard, this book's arrival is timely. Not only is the Internet of Things for energy applications, herein called the energy Internet of Things (eIoT), rapidly developing but also the transition towards sustainable energy to abate global climate is very much at the forefront of public discourse. It is within the context of these two dynamic thrusts, digitization and global climate change, that the energy industry sees itself undergoing significant change in how it is operated and managed. This book recognizes that they impose five fundamental energy management change drivers: 1.) the growing demand for electricity, 2.) the emergence of renewable energy resources, 3.) the emergence of electrified transportation, 4.) the deregulation of electric power markets, 5.) and innovations in smart grid technology. Together, they challenge many of the assumptions upon which the electric grid was first built. The goal of this book is to provide a single integrated picture of how eIoT can come to transform our energy infrastructure. This book links the energy management change drivers mentioned above to the need for a technical energy management solution. It, then, describes how eIoT meets many of the criteria required for such a technical solution. In that regard, the book stresses the ability of eIoT to add sensing, decision-making, and actuation capabilities to millions or perhaps even billions of interacting "smart' devices. With such a large scale transformation composed of so many independent actions, the book also organizes the discussion into a single multi-layer energy management control loop structure. Consequently, much attention is given to not just network-enabled physical devices but also communication networks, distributed control & decision making, and finally technical architectures and standards. Having gone into the detail of these ...

Perspectives on European Earthquake Engineering and Seismology: Volume 2 (Geotechnical, Geological and Earthquake Engineering Book 39) by Atilla Ansal (Springer) 3.5 Stars (3 Reviews)    Price verified 56 minutes ago

This book collects 4 keynote and 15 theme lectures presented at the 2nd European Conference on Earthquake Engineering and Seismology (2ECEES), held in Istanbul, Turkey, from August 24 to 29, 2014. The conference was organized by the Turkish Earthquake Foundation - Earthquake Engineering Committee and Prime Ministry, Disaster and Emergency Management Presidency under the auspices of the European Association for Earthquake Engineering (EAEE) and European Seismological Commission (ESC). The book's nineteen state-of-the-art chapters were written by the most prominent researchers in Europe and address a comprehensive collection of topics on earthquake engineering, as well as interdisciplinary subjects such as engineering seismology and seismic risk assessment and management. Further topics include engineering seismology, geotechnical earthquake engineering, seismic performance of buildings, earthquake-resistant engineering structures, new techniques and technologies, and managing risk in seismic regions. The book also presents the First Professor Inge Lehmann Distinguished Award Lecture given by Prof. Shamita Das in honor of Prof. Dr. Inge Lehmann. The aim of this work is to present the state-of-the art and latest practices in the fields of earthquake engineering and seismology, with Europe's most respected researchers addressing recent and ongoing developments while also proposing innovative avenues for future research and development. Given its cutting-edge conten t and broad spectrum of topics, the book offers a unique reference guide for researchers in these fields. Audience: This book is of interest to civil engineers in the fields of geotechnical and structural earthquake engineering; scientists and researchers in the fields of seismology, geology and geophysics. Not only scientists, engineers and students, but also those interested in earthquake hazard assessment and mitigation will find in this book the most recent advances.

Digital Twin: A Complete Guide For The Complete Beginner by Vijay Raghunathan 4.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 8 hours ago

Digital twins or digital twin, as a concept, has been around for a while. Dr. Michael Grieves at the University of Michigan in the USA wrote about it in a white paper in 2002. NASA's been long using digital twins for its space mission, as they (obviously) don't have physical access to the equipment once it leaves our planet. Simulation and visualisation technologies have been in use for decades. Yet, digital twins didn't capture the imagination of enterprises until recently. The proliferation of IoT (Internet of Things) devices, the ability to gather and manage big data, and the emergence of sophisticated analysis and prediction technologies, are now pushing the adoption of digital twins. Gartner named digital twins as the Top 10 Strategic Technology for 2017, fuelling the imagination of enterprises. From there, it's been a growth story. What is a digital twin? Why are they important? Why should we need to note them? Join us as we explore the answers to these questions in this book. Contents ---------- TERMINOLOGIES SECTION 1: INTRODUCTION Chapter 1: The Big Picture of Digital Twins Chapter 2: Applications of Digital Twins Chapter 3: Early Adopters of Digital Twins & Use Cases SECTION 2: DIGITAL TWINS ARCHITECTURE Chapter 4: Digital Twins - The Fundamentals Chapter 5: The Advanced Concepts of Digital Twins Chapter 6: Digital Twins Architecture EXAMPLE: Design of Digital Twin for a Rotary Kiln in the Cement Industry Chapter 7: Implementing Digital Twin Aggregate (DTA) Chapter 8: Digital Twins Tools & Technologies Chapter 9: Digital Twins vs Simulation - The Common Misconception SECTION 3: THE FUTURE OF DIGITAL TWINS Chapter 10: Digital Twins & Quantum Computing Chapter 11: Digital Twins & Blockchain Chapter 12: Digital Twins & Brain-Computer Interface Chapter 13: Digital Twins in Digital Transformation Chapter 14: Digital Twins & Environmental Causes Chapter 15: Digital Twins Beyond Industrial Use Cases
