Mit einer beispiellosen Befragung von 18 der weltweit größten spirituellen Lehrer, Schriftsteller und Wissenschaftler entstand dieses internationale Buch- und Filmprojekt über die Kraft des Herzens. Baptist de Pape war ein junger Anwalt, als er den Ruf verspürte, herauszufinden, woher Menschen die Kraft für ihre Lebensentscheidungen schöpfen. Dazu interviewt er Berühmtheiten auf der ganzen Welt und die Aussagen sind überraschend übereinstimmend: Der Ursprung aller Kräfte wie Dankbarkeit, Resilienz, Intuition oder Vergebung liegt in der Intelligenz des Herzens. Hier geht´s zur offziellen Website des Buches: www.thepoweroftheheart.com

This second edition of the highly acclaimed RF Power Amplifiers has been thoroughly revised and expanded to reflect the latest challenges associated with power transmitters used in communications systems. With more rigorous treatment of many concepts, the new edition includes a unique combination of class-tested analysis and industry-proven design techniques. Radio frequency (RF) power amplifiers are the fundamental building blocks used in a vast variety of wireless communication circuits, radio and TV broadcasting transmitters, radars, wireless energy transfer, and industrial processes. Through a combination of theory and practice, RF Power Amplifiers, Second Edition provides a solid understanding of the key concepts, the principle of operation, synthesis, analysis, and design of RF power amplifiers. This extensive update boasts: up to date end of chapter summaries; review questions and problems; an expansion on key concepts; new examples related to real-world applications illustrating key concepts and brand new chapters covering hot topics such as RF LC oscillators and dynamic power supplies. Carefully edited for superior readability, this work remains an essential reference for research & development staff and design engineers. Senior level undergraduate and graduate electrical engineering students will also find it an invaluable resource with its practical examples & summaries, review questions and end of chapter problems. Key features: A fully revised solutions manual is now hosted on a companion website alongside new simulations. Extended treatment of a broad range of topologies of RF power amplifiers. In-depth treatment of state-of-the art of modern transmitters and a new chapter on oscillators. Includes problem-solving methodology, step-by-step derivations and closed-form design equations with illustrations.
Grid converters are the key player in renewable energy integration. The high penetration of renewable energy systems is calling for new more stringent grid requirements. As a consequence, the grid converters should be able to exhibit advanced functions like: dynamic control of active and reactive power, operation within a wide range of voltage and frequency, voltage ride-through capability, reactive current injection during faults, grid services support. This book explains the topologies, modulation and control of grid converters for both photovoltaic and wind power applications. In addition to power electronics, this book focuses on the specific applications in photovoltaic wind power systems where grid condition is an essential factor. With a review of the most recent grid requirements for photovoltaic and wind power systems, the book discusses these other relevant issues: * modern grid inverter topologies for photovoltaic and wind turbines * islanding detection methods for photovoltaic systems * synchronization techniques based on second order generalized integrators (SOGI) * advanced synchronization techniques with robust operation under grid unbalance condition grid filter design and active damping techniques * power control under grid fault conditions, considering both positive and negative sequences Grid Converters for Photovoltaic and Wind Power Systems is intended as a coursebook for graduated students with a background in electrical engineering and also for professionals in the evolving renewable energy industry. For people from academia interested in adopting the course, a set of slides is available for download from the website. www.wiley.com/go/grid_converters
Make your websites more dynamic by adding a feedback form, creating a private area where members can upload images that are automatically resized, or perhaps storing all your content in a database. David Powers has updated his definitive book to incorporate the latest techniques and changes to PHP, including the arrival of PHP 7. New features include the spaceship and null coalesce operators, generators, using array shorthand syntax for list(), array dereferencing, and array unpacking with the splat operator. The problem is, you´re not a programmer and the thought of writing code sends a chill up your spine. Or maybe you´ve dabbled a bit in PHP and MySQL, but you can´t get past baby steps. If this describes you, then you´ve just found the right book. PHP and the MySQL database are deservedly the most popular combination for creating dynamic websites. They´re free, easy to use, and provided by many web hosting companies in their standard packages. This book also covers MariaDB, a seamless replacement for MySQL that has been adopted on many web servers. Unfortunately, most PHP books either expect you to be an expert already or force you to go through endless exercises of little practical value. In contrast, this book gives you real value right away through a series of practical examples that you can incorporate directly into your sites, optimizing performance and adding functionality such as file uploading, email feedback forms, image galleries, content management systems, and much more. Each solution is created with not only functionality in mind, but also visual design. But this book doesn´t just provide a collection of ready-made scripts: each PHP solution builds on what´s gone before, teaching you the basics of PHP and database design quickly and painlessly. By the end of the book, you´ll have the confidence to start writing your own scripts or-if you prefer to leave that task to others-to adapt existing scripts to your own requirements. Right from the start, you´re shown how easy it is to protect your sites by adopting secure coding practices. What You Will Learn Design and build dynamic PHP-based web sites and applications Get started right away through practical examples that you can reuse Incorporate PHP 7 elements including new ways of handling arrays Work with the latest PHP 7 techniques, innovations, and best practices Who This Book Is For Readers should have at least some prior exposure to web development using PHP.
Quickly create consistent checkouts for use within websites, using the power of the HTML5 Payment Request API. This project-oriented book simplifies the process of creating and manipulating checkouts with the Payment Request API in browsers for websites or online applications, using little more than a text editor or free software. One of the key concerns of any e-commerce company is ensuring customers complete the checkout process successfully, and for them to return. Unfortunately, many checkouts still suffer from a high level of drop-out. The Payment Request API is an open standard being developed by browser vendors to simplify payments for users with a quick and seamless autofill process enabling a broader set of online payment providers to participate in the market. The API is designed to be easy to implement across all supported browsers, and work with any payment type or service provider. Checking Out with the Payment Request API equips you with a tool set that you can use to develop future projects, incorporate into your existing workflow and allow you to reduce any dependency on complex, custom-made checkouts that might be prone to failure, or unwieldy to use. You´ll learn how to use the Payment Request API to create consistent checkouts quickly and easily, and work through practical example projects that will help familiarize you with using the API. We live in an age where speed and accuracy are of the essence - add effortless flow to your payments using this book today. What You´ll Learn Implement the Payment Request API in a project Explore some of the options for personalizing it for a project Gain an appreciation of pointers around user experience and how this affects the API Understand how to manage issues and security when using the Payment Request API Work through some example projects, from standalone demos to implementing in frameworks Who This Book Is For Website developers familiar with creating shopping carts and looking to leverage the HTML5 Payment Request API.
