Formerly known as IEEE Expert Now, the IEEE eLearning Library has new tutorials on electrochemical capacitors, software design for embedded systems, and the U.S. National Electrical Safety Code rules. The interactive online courses are based on tutorials and workshops presented at IEEE conferences.
Fundamentals and Application Engineering of Electrochemical Capacitors: Fundamentals (Part 1)
By John M. Miller
The lecture covers the nature and significance of electric double-layer and pseudocapacitance charge storage. It compares and contrasts those mechanisms with traditional capacitor and battery technologies. Basic design rules for electrochemical capacitor components are covered, including power and energy, Ragone relation, and parameter characterization.
Fundamentals and Application Engineering of Electrochemical Capacitors: Applications (Part 2)
By John M. Miller
The second of two lectures provides a systems engineering perspective on the use of ultracapacitors in industrial, utility, and transportation installations. Applications are illustrated with case studies on uninterruptible power supply, gantry cranes, and excavators and other heavy industrial equipment.
A Software Design Methodology for Real-Time Embedded Systems, Part II: Design and Coding Guidelines
By Donald Berndt
This follow-up tutorial expands on concepts from the original and provides useful design and coding guidelines. After completing the course, students will have learned what is needed to implement the design method and architecture in an embedded system.
Introduction to the NESC Overhead Strengths and Loadings
By Allen Clapp
Students learn how to use the National Electrical Safety Code to determine the required grade of construction, identify required loadings, and recognize required load and strength factors.
