Arc Flash Hazard Analysis and Mitigation, 2nd Edition

J. C. Das

December 2020

An arc flash, an electrical breakdown of the resistance of air resulting in an electric arc, can cause substantial damage, fire, injury, or loss of life. Professionals involved in the design, operation, or maintenance of electric power systems require thorough and up-to-date knowledge of arc flash safety and prevention methods. Arc Flash Hazard Analysis and Mitigation is the most comprehensive reference guide available on all aspects of arc flash hazard calculations, protective current technologies, and worker safety in electrical environments. Detailed chapters cover protective relaying, unit protection systems, arc-resistant equipment, arc flash analyses in DC systems, and many more critical topics.

CubeSat Antenna Design

Nacer Chahat (Editor)

December 2020

Presents an overview of CubeSat antennas designed at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL)

CubeSats—nanosatellites built to standard dimensions of 10cm x 10 cm x cm—are making space-based Earth science observation and interplanetary space science affordable, accessible, and rapidly deployable for institutions such as universities and smaller space agencies around the world. CubeSat Antenna Design is an up-to-date overview of CubeSat antennas designed at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), covering the systems engineering knowledge required to design these antennas from a radio frequency and mechanical perspective.
