  • Introduction

    The scope of electric power engineering comprises everything needed to manage electric energy, from its generation to its final utilization. Between generation and final utilization, electric energy can be transformed several times, and transferred for distances of up to hundreds or thousands of kilometres, by means of power lines. This introductory chapter illustrates the main functions of a power system along with the different energy forms involved. The energy converters that are of interest to electric power engineering can be divided into two categories: electromechanical-energy conversion and electric-to-electric energy conversion. This book focuses on showing (a) how a physical system can be modelled using circuits and (b) how circuits can be analysed, and is divided into four parts: Part I: Preliminary Material, Part II: Electric circuit Concept and Analysis, Part III: Electric Machines and Power Converters, and Part IV: Power Systems Basics.

  • Research on Wind Power Generation Application on the Ships and Offshore Structures

    Wind power energy is a renewable resource which is clean without pollution. The early research on wind power energy mainly focused on the on land utilization. The application on the sea is infrequent. Much less to find the application on the ships and offshore structures. Based on the fact that the energy crisis becomes more and more severe, this paper puts forward the idea to install wind power generation sets on the ships and offshore structures widely, and also gives the problems to be resolved and the solutions.

  • Imaging of Acoustic Emission from Vibrating Micro/Nano Structures

    In this paper, a novel imaging technique of acoustic emission from vibrating micro- and nano-structures is proposed and demonstrated for characterizing their mechanical energy losses via ambient air. A thermal probe is employed for the measurement of particle velocity involved in the acoustic emission. Imaging is obtained with scanning the vibrating sample under the thermal probe, which exhibits the geometry dependence on acoustic emission profile. Also it is found that strong acoustic emission is emitted from a mechanical detect formed on the vibrating beam.

  • Flywheel technology past, present, and 21st Century projections

    This paper describes the present status of flywheel energy storage technology, or mechanical batteries, and discusses realistic future projections that are possible based on stronger composite materials and advancing technology. The origins and use of flywheel technology for mechanical energy storage began several 100 years ago and was developed throughout the Industrial Revolution. One of the first "modern" dissertations on the theoretical stress limitations of rotational disks (isotropic only) is the seminal work by Dr. A. Stodola whose first translation to English was made in 1917. The next big milestones were during the 1960s and 1970s when NASA sponsored programs proposed energy storage flywheels as possible primary sources for space missions. However, it was not until the 1980s when microelectronics, magnetic bearing systems and high power density motor-generators became enabling technologies. The next decade proved that a mechanical battery could surpass chemical batteries for many applications.

  • Entropy analysis of Brownian motor

    Biological nano- and micromachines perform transport guarantying functionality of living cells. Thermal fluctuations is the major source of energy for these machines. They transport biological materials and ions, build proteins, attain motility of the cell, etc. Fluctuation driven transport can be studied applying the Brownian ratchet principle, and this concept provides the understanding of how electrochemical energy converted into mechanical energy. The importance of Brownian motion is its versatility in explaining a wide range of biological processes. This paper reports entropy analysis, model developments and analysis of nanobiomotors. This analysis of Brownian motor may result in understanding the motion, energy conversion, energy transfer, as well as other mechanisms and processes at the molecular level specifically examining nano- and micromachines.

  • Balance and modes of energy in the piezoelectric cochlear outer hair cell wall

    The cochlear outer hair cell is unique in that it can produce voltage- dependent length changes (electromotility). This aspect of the outer hair cell makes it a potential candidate for cochlear amplification. We model the outer hair cell with piezoelectric relationships in order to characterize the various energies involved in electromotility. We also take into account the tension-dependence of the cellular response by using a new method to estimate the tension-dependent coefficients of the resultants. We present balance of mechanical and electrical energies, and show how the assorted energy modes react to different voltages and axial forces. The balance of energy modes presented here is important for analysis into the effectiveness of the cochlear outer hair cell as a biological piezoelectric actuator.

  • MEMS Radioisotope-Powered Piezoelectric µ - Power Generator (RPG)

    We present a microfabricated die-scale Radioisotope-powered Piezoelectric µ -power Generator (RPG) with nuclear to electrical conversion efficiency as high as 3.7%. The generator employs direct charging to convert radiated β-particle kinetic energy into stored electromechanical energy in a piezoelectric unimorph, and piezoelectricity to convert the stored mechanical energy into extractable electrical energy. The generator goes through a charge-discharge-vibrate cycle, integrating the energy collected during the charging phase. This enables high power output (1.13 µ W peak across a 90 kΩ load impedance) for a short time (10 s) during the vibration cycle, even with radioactive film emitting only 100 nW of continuous power.

  • Innovative Structure for Mechanical Energy Scavenging

    In this paper we present a new type of electrostatic conversion microstructure dedicated to mechanical energy scavenging: a multigap comb fingers microstructure fabricated thanks to a nickel electro forming process in a silicon sacrificial mould. This structure provides repeatable capacitance variations allowing higher global conversion efficiency up to 70-80 %, and lower operating voltages (&lt;50 V) opening the path to the integration of the management electronics. A complete, few mm<sup>3</sup> in size, vibration micro power supply based on electrostatic transduction is now just a feet away.

  • Electrostrictive polymers for mechanical-to-electrical energy harvesting

    Research of electrostrictive polymers has generated new opportunities for harvesting energy from the surrounding environment and converting it into usable electrical energy. Piezoelectric ceramic based devices have long been used in energy harvesting for converting mechanical motion to electrical energy. Nevertheless, those materials tend to be unsuitable for low-frequency mechanical excitations such as human movement. Since organic polymers are typically softer and more flexible, the translated electrical energy output is considerably higher under the same mechanical force. Currently, investigations in using electroactive polymers for energy harvesting, and mechanical-to- electrical energy conversion, are beginning to show potential for this application. In this paper we discuss methods of energy harvesting using membrane structures and various methods used to convert it into usable energy. Since polymers are typically used in capacitive energy harvesting designs, the uses of polymer materials with large relative permittivities have demonstrated success for mechanical to electrical energy conversion. Further investigations will be used to identify suitable micro-electro mechanical systems (MEMs) structures given specific types of low-frequency mechanical excitations (10-100Hz).
