Ali Emadi Handbook of Automotive Power Electronics and Motor Drives

Initially, the only electric loads encountered in an automobile were for lighting and the starter motor. Today, demands on performance, safety, emissions, comfort, convenience, entertainment, and communications have seen the working-in of seemingly innumerable advanced electronic devices. Consequently, vehicle electric systems require larger capacities and more complex configurations to deal with these demands. Covering applications in conventional, hybrid-electric, and electric vehicles, the Handbook of Automotive Power Electronics and Motor Drives provides a comprehensive reference for automotive electrical systems. This authoritative handbook features contributions from an outstanding international panel of experts from industry and academia, highlighting existing and emerging technologies. Divided into five parts, the Handbook of Automotive Power Electronics and Motor Drives offers an overview of automotive power systems, discusses semiconductor devices, sensors, and other components, explains different power electronic converters, examines electric machines and associated drives, and details various advanced electrical loads as well as battery technology for automobile applications.

 Teaching Fundamental Motor Skills

Teaching Fundamental Motor Skills

Many books focus on which motor skills should be taught to primary school children, but few focus on how to teach those skills. Teaching Fundamental Motor Skills bridges that gap and provides expert instruction on both. The book will help teachers guide their students in mastering the critical elements of eight locomotor and 17 manipulative skills. The approach offers a perfect balance between sound pedagogy and fun activities that will engage students and keep them learning. It will help teachers capitalise on the natural excitement and eagerness that most primary/wage children bring to physical education and provides motivating methods to keep the children excited as they learn fundamental motor skills.

The Dodge Brothers The Men the Motor Cars and the

At the start of the Ford Motor Company in 1903, the Dodge Brothers supplied nearly every car part needed by the up-and-coming auto giant. After fifteen years of operating a successful automotive supplier company, much to Ford's advantage, John and Horace Dodge again changed the face of the automotive market in 1914 by introducing their own car. The Dodge Brothers automobile carried on their names even after their untimely deaths in 1920, with the company then remaining in the hands of their widows until its sale in 1925 to New York bankers and subsequent purchase in 1928 by Walter Chrysler. The Dodge nameplate has endured, but despite their achievements and their critical role in the early success of Henry Ford, John and Horace Dodge are usually overlooked in histories of the early automotive industry.
