From morning to night, we rely on energy to heat our homes, run our appliances and power our favourite devices. We all need and want electric energy (especially when our mobile phone battery is nearly dead). So, why do we fear and loathe the process of creating and distributing it? When we're not simplybored to tears by the actual engineering technology, we learn from media coverage that energy is too dangerous, dirty and dishonest. No wonder we're disconnected from this essential resource. In Make Energy Cool, author Sagi Aloni proposes a new future for energy production - a future where we can get excited about the possibilities (just as we do with cars, computers, mobile devices and other cool innovations), rather than feeling scared or disinterested by the current reality. Aloni begins by showing how we reached this energy crossroads, before providing a colorful and exciting blueprint for change. Aloni outlines how free markets, information technology, and human ingenuity could create a bright, new energy landscape where we all have a say in what happens next. Whether you work in energy or you simply have a nagging awareness of the environmental and social costs of our current energy model, this engaging and accessible book is for you. It's for all of us. Make Energy Cool is a rallying call for people of all ages, backgrounds and nationalities to get inspired and to create our own energy future. Ultimately, it's about making energy generation relevant to the current generation. The time for change is now. It's possible, it's achievable, and it won't require a return to the dark ages. It's time to get creative. It's time to Make Energy Cool.
Considered as particularly difficult by generations of students and engineers, thermodynamics applied to energy systems can now be taught with an original instruction method. Energy Systems applies a completely different approach to the calculation, application and theory of multiple energy conversion technologies. It aims to create the reader's foundation for understanding and applying the design principles to all kinds of energy cycles, including renewable energy. Proven to be simpler and more reflective than existing methods, it deals with energy system modeling, instead of the thermodynamic foundations, as the primary objective. Although its style is drastically different from other textbooks, no concession is done to coverage: with encouraging pace, the complete range from basic thermodynamics to the most advanced energy systems is addressed.
The accompanying Thermoptim portal (http://direns.mines-paristech.fr/Sites/Thopt/en/co/_Arborescence_web.html) presents the software and manuals (in English and French) to solve over 200 examples, and programming and design tools for exercises of all levels of complexity. The reader is explained how to build appropriate models to bridge the technological reality with the theoretical basis of energy engineering. Offering quick overviews through e-learning modules moreover, the portal is user-friendly and enables to quickly become fully operational. Students can freely download the Thermoptim modeling software demo version (in seven languages) and extended options are available to lecturers. A professional edition is also available and has been adopted by many companies and research institutes worldwide - www.thermoptim.org
This volume is intended as for courses in applied thermodynamics, energy systems, energy conversion, thermal engineering to senior undergraduate and graduate-level students in mechanical, energy, chemical and petroleum engineering. Students should already have taken a first year course in thermodynamics. The refreshing approach and exceptionally rich coverage make it a great reference tool for researchers and professionals also. Contains International Units (SI).
The winner of UCL's annual HEP thesis prize, this work describes an analysis of the data from the second flight of the Antarctica Impulsive Transient Antenna (ANITA). ANITA is a balloon-borne experiment that searches for radio signals originating from ultra-high energy neutrinos and cosmic rays interacting with the Antarctic ice or air. The search for ultrahigh energy neutrinos of astrophysical origin is one of the outstanding experimental challenges of the 21st century. The ANITA experiment was designed to be the most sensitive instrument to ultra-high energy neutrinos that originate from the interactions of cosmic rays with the cosmic microwave background. The methodology and results of the neutrino and cosmic ray searches are presented in the thesis.
