Overview: An extensive and easy-to-read guide covering the fundamental concepts of electrical machines, highlighting transformers, motors, generators and magnetic circuits. It provides in-depth discussion on construction, working principles and applications of various electrical machines. The design of transformers, functioning of generators and performance of induction motors are explained through descriptive illustrations, step-by-step solved examples and mathematical derivations. A separate chapter on special purpose machines offers important topics such as servomotors, brushless motors and stepper motors, which is useful from industrial perspective to build a customized machine. Supported by 400 solved examples, 600 figures, and more than 1000 self-assessment exercises, this is an ideal text for one or two-semester undergraduate courses on electrical machines under electrical and electronics engineering.

Electronic Music Machines by Jean-Michel Réveillac (Reveillac)

Electronic Music Machines: The New Musical Instruments by Jean-Michel Reveillac
Requirements: .PDF reader, 42.3 MB
Overview: Since 1960, with the advent of musical electronics, composers and musicians have been using ever more sophisticated machines to create sonic material that presents innovation, color and new styles: electro-acoustic, electro, house, techno, etc. music. The music of Pierre Henry, Kraftwerk, Pink Floyd, Daft Punk and many others has introduced new sounds, improbable rhythms and a unique approach to composition and notation.
Electronic machines have become essential: they have built and influenced the music of the most recent decades and set the trend for future productions.
This book explores the theory and practice related to the different machines which constitute the universe of musical electronics, omitting synthesizers which are treated in other works. Sequencers, drum machines, samplers, groove machines and vocoders from 1960 to today are studied in their historical, physical and theoretical context. More detailed approaches to the Elektron Octatrack sequencer-sampler and the Korg Electribe 2 groove machine are also included.

Machines of Youth: America’s Car Obsession by Gary S. Cross

Machines of Youth: America’s Car Obsession by Gary S. Cross
Requirements: .PDF reader, 2.7 Mb
Overview: For American teenagers, getting a driver’s license has long been a watershed moment, separating teens from their childish pasts as they accelerate toward the sweet, sweet freedom of their futures. With driver’s license in hand, teens are on the road to buying and driving(and maybe even crashing) their first car, a machine which is home to many a teenage ritual-being picked up for a first date, “parking” at a scenic overlook, or blasting the radio with a gaggle of friends in tow. So important is this car ride into adulthood that automobile culture has become a stand-in, a shortcut to what millions of Americans remember about their coming of age.

Machines of Youth traces the rise, and more recently the fall, of car culture among American teens. In this book, Gary S. Cross details how an automobile obsession drove teen peer culture from the 1920s to the 1980s, seducing budding adults with privacy, freedom, mobility, and spontaneity. Cross shows how the automobile redefined relationships between parents and teenage children, becoming a rite of passage, producing new courtship rituals, and fueling the growth of numerous car subcultures. Yet for teenagers today the lure of the automobile as a transition to adulthood is in decline.Tinkerers are now sidelined by the advent of digital engine technology and premolded body construction, while the attention of teenagers has been captured by iPhones, video games, and other digital technology. And adults have become less tolerant of teens on the road, restricting both cruising and access to drivers’ licenses.

Cars are certainly not going out of style, Cross acknowledges, but how upcoming generations use them may be changing. He finds that while vibrant enthusiasm for them lives on, cars may no longer be at the center of how American youth define themselves. But, for generations of Americans, the modern teen experience was inextricably linked to this particularly American icon.

The Age of Living Machines: How Biology Will Build the Next Technology Revolution through Susan Hockfield
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 11 MB
Overview: From the previous president of MIT, the tale of the following generation revolution, and the way it’ll trade our lives.
A century in the past, discoveries in physics got here in conjunction with engineering to supply an array of astonishing new applied sciences: radios, phones, televisions, plane, radar, nuclear energy, computer systems, the Internet, and a bunch of still-evolving virtual equipment. These applied sciences so radically reshaped our global that we will be able to not conceive of existence with out them.
Today, the sector’s inhabitants is projected to upward thrust to neatly over 9.five billion through 2050, and we’re lately confronted with the effects of manufacturing the power that fuels, heats, and cools us. With temperatures and sea ranges emerging, and big parts of the globe plagued with drought, famine, and drug-resistant sicknesses, we’d like new applied sciences to take on those issues.
But we’re at the cusp of a brand new convergence, argues world-renowned neuroscientist Susan Hockfield, with discoveries in biology coming in conjunction with engineering to supply every other array of just about unimaginable applied sciences―next-generation merchandise that experience the prospective to be each bit as paradigm moving as the 20th century’s virtual wonders.
The Age of Living Machines describes probably the most most fun new tendencies and the scientists and engineers who helped create them. Virus-built batteries. Protein-based water filters. Cancer-detecting nanoparticles. Mind-reading bionic limbs. Computer-engineered plants. Together they spotlight the promise of the generation revolution of the twenty-first century to triumph over probably the most largest humanitarian, scientific, and environmental demanding situations of our time.
