  1. Energy efficiency improvements in electric motors and drives

    Berlin ; New York : Springer, c1997.

    This book covers the basics and the state of the art of energy-efficient motor technologies, which can be used now and in the near future to achieve significant and cost-effective energy savings. It describes recent developments in advanced motor technologies such as permanent magnet and reluctance motors. Energy-efficient motor technologies, though enabling a huge amount of electricity to be saved, still have not been widely adopted. The book presents barriers to the adoption of those technologies and features policies to promote the large scale penetration of energy-efficient technologies, describing the experiences carried out so far in different parts of the world. The volume includes contributions from relevant institutions in the European Union, North America, Latin America, Japan and New Zealand.

  2. Demand-side management and electricity end-use efficiency

    Dordrecht ; Boston : Kluwer Academic Publishers, c1988.

  3. Experimental robotics V : the fifth international symposium, Barcelona, Catalonia, June 15-18, 1997

    London ; New York : Springer-Verlag, 1998.

    Experts in the field of experimental robotics come together in this book to share the results of late-1990s research projects. Both theoretical ideas and advances with practical applications are discussed, in particular, state-of-the-art research in areas such as underwater environments, civil engineering, space and medicine is focused upon. Research aimed at improving methodologies and techniques in robot control, programming and planning shows the way to improve the use of robots for complex problems. Techniques for human-robot co-operation are also looked at - there are a number of areas in which combining the intelligence and adaptability of humans and the accuracy and reliability of robots can have remarkable results. This book should enable readers to update their knowledge of experimental robotics and find out, particularly, about the research that has been going over the two years leading up to mid-1997, and the research that is likely to continue in the future.
