    The positioning of generating plant in rank (merit) order has been based traditionally on minimised system economic cost. If regulations were introduced to place a financial penalty on gaseous emissions from fossil-fuelled power stations, the result would be an increased economic burden on such generating plant. This paper examines the effect on merit order of the imposition of a tax on carbon dio... View full abstract»

    After discussion of the philosophical basis of science/engineering and the resulting normal realism model of the physical universe, evidence is given indicating the model's limiting properties and inadequacies. Statistical experiments show that the mind alone can, for example, alter the rate of count of a random stream of electrical pulses; also it can acquire information, without sensory mediatio...

    The combination of an unprecedented rise in the number of students entering higher education and the concomitant constraints on funding have led to a great interest amongst academic institutions in developing modular degree schemes. The paper explores the course management issues raised by the adoption of a modular structure for an engineering degree scheme at De Montfort University, Leicester, UK... View full abstract»

    Within a few years of the invention of the telephone, many police forces around the world immediately embraced the new technology in the ever increasing fight against crime. By the turn of the 19th century police telephone boxes were appearing on city streets for the use of officers and the general public and by the early 1930s there were a few thousand boxes in the UK. By the late 1960s, however,... View full abstract»

    Digital simulators offer many potential benefits in the teaching of introductory courses in digital electronics. This paper sets the scene for their application in contemporary higher education and suggests possible areas where they can be applied. The requirements of the particular educational simulator software package employed are discussed and examples of practical exercises used with students... View full abstract»
