    Fundamentals of Building Energy Dynamics assesses how and why buildings use energy, and how energy use and peak demand can be reduced. It provides a basis for integrating energy efficiency and solar approaches in ways that will allow building owners and designers to balance the need to minimize initial costs, operating costs, and life-cycle costs with need to maintain reliable building operations and enhance environmental quality both inside and outside the building. Chapters trace the development of building energy systems and analyze the demand side of solar applications as a means for determining what portion of a building's energy requirements can potentially be met by solar energy. Following the introduction, the book provides an overview of energy usepatterns in the aggregate U.S. building population. Chapter 3 surveys work onthe energy flows in an individual building and shows how these flows interactto influence overall energy use. Chapter 4 presents the analytical methods,techniques, and tools developed to calculate and analyze energy use inbuildings, while chapter 5 provides an extensive survey of the energyconservation and management strategies developed in the post-energy crisisperiod. The approach taken is a commonsensical one, starting with the propositionthat the purpose of buildings is to house human activities, and thatconservation measures that negatively affect such activities are based on falseeconomies. The goal is to determine rational strategies for the design of newbuildings, and the retrofit of existing buildings to bring them up to modernstandards of energy use. The energy flows examined are both large scale(heating systems) and small scale (choices among appliances).Solar Heat Technologies: Fundamentals and Applications, Volume 4

  • CompAct™ Arm: a Compliant Manipulator with Intrinsic Variable Physical Damping

    Humans exploit compliance in their biomechanical muscle-tendon-bone actuation structure to enable robust and safe interaction with the environment and utilize the elastic energy stored into muscles and tendons to obtain large energy efficiency or high output mechanical power peaks at their limbs. From the robotic/mechatronic point of view it is clear that emulating such a property in robotic actuation systems enables the achievement of performance which is not possible with classical stiff designs. In contrast to this, transmission compliance introduces some disadvantages as e.g. typically underdamped modes which reduce the achievable control bandwidth, stability margin and accuracy of the controlled system. These limitations are solved in mammalians by means of physical damping which clarifies why these biological systems are able of performing fast and smooth yet accurate motions in their limbs. This motivates this work which consists in the analysis and development of the CompAct™ Arm, a novel compliant manipulator with intrinsic variable damping. This is probably the first robotic system to exhibit these diverse bio inspired characteristics. A motivation analysis is initially presented to show how the drawbacks introduced by compliance can be overcome by means of physical damping. The second part of the paper presents the mechatronic development of the robotic manipulator and preliminary experimental results.

    This chapter describes the performance prospects of scaled cross???current tetrode (XCT) CMOS devices and demonstrates the outstanding low???energy aspects of sub???30 nm long gate XCT???SOI CMOS by analyzing device operations. The energy efficiency improvement of such scaled XCT CMOS circuits (two orders higher) stems from the ???source potential floating effect,??? which dynamically reduces effective gate capacitance. It is expected that this feature will be very important in many medical implant applications that demand a long device lifetime without recharging the battery.

  • Selected Photonic THz Technologies

    The THz spectral range is yet not fully exploited to its full potential due to the current limitations in sources and detectors. To open the frequency range for applications, photonic solutions have been at the technological forefront. For example the advances of time domain spectroscopy techniques using short pulse lasers have enabled provision of full spectroscopy data across the range. There are different types of systems and their development should be driven by the requirements of the potential application. Photonic techniques are desirable solutions for millimeter and THz generation in terms of their energy efficiency, bandwidth, and, above all, their tuning range. Recent developments in this area target the improvement of optical-to-THz converters as well as pushing the level of integration of semiconductor laser sources in order to address the main drawbacks, cost and spectral purity. The purpose of this chapter is to describe the main types of photonically enabled THz systems and the expected performances from their components. Then a description of the key elements in designing each of the components and their limitation is given. The final part of the chapter is a discussion on potential future development and the importance of integration.

  • Wearable Active Antenna Modules for Energy-Efficient Reliable Off-Body Communication Systems

    The term off-body wireless communication identifies a particular type of wireless communication that is performed between the human body and any device in the external world. The use of multiple wearable textile antennas was proven to be an effective technique to counter the negative effects of channel fluctuation, that is, to increase reliability or, equivalently, energy efficiency. This chapter overviews the different state-of-the-art techniques and devices, capable of improving reliability - or equivalently power efficiency - of body-centric wireless communication systems. In diversity and, more generally, Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) communication systems, the different available replicas of the signals are processed using several techniques, aiming at the mitigation of errors on the received data stream. The chapter presents a comprehensive design paradigm for the design of energy- efficient active wearable antennas, based on the combination of circuit and full-wave optimization.
