    Since the beginnings of television broadcasting, the conventional cathode-ray tube has held a dominant position as the display device, and for almost as long, the emergence of a flat display has always been just 5 years off. In recent times, the thin display has become more of a reality and the cathode-ray tube is at last being challenged by alternatives. In fact, a number of ideas for thin CRTs h... View full abstract»

    Rural areas in developing countries cannot hope to have their electricity externally supplied. The author describes work carried out to try and reduce the costs of microhydroelectric plants which are an ideal source of remotely-generated power. Work into the replacement of costly synchronous generators with induction generators using cheap industrial induction motors and fixed capacitors for the e... View full abstract»

    This year sees the introduction of a new set of electricity safety regulations which could affect all electrical engineers in the course of their work. The author describes these regulations which will apply to all electrical equipment used at work where the equipment may give rise to the hazards of electric shock, burn, fire or explosion. The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 are made under th... View full abstract»

    Trying to accommodate an ever-increasing number of private mobile-radio (PMR) users within the current PMR frequency bands is resulting in serious congestion and a decline in grade of service. In response to this situation, PMR licensing authorities are increasingly encouraging operators to use trunked PMR schemes. The author shows that, by pooling channels (so that users have potential access to ... View full abstract»

    Spreadsheets are essentially software packages for carrying out operations on rows and columns of numerical values. Although originally a financial modelling tool, they also have many applications in modelling engineering systems. The authors show that most commercially available spreadsheets are well provided with trigonometric, exponential and logarithmic functions, as well as with a range of ar... View full abstract»
