This book examines the powerful and intensifying role that metrics play in ordering and shaping our everyday lives. Focusing upon the interconnections between measurement, circulation and possibility, the author explores the interwoven relations between power and metrics. He draws upon a wide-range of interdisciplinary resources to place these metrics within their broader historical, political and social contexts. More specifically, he illuminates the various ways that metrics implicate our lives – from our work, to our consumption and our leisure, through to our bodily routines and the financial and organisational structures that surround us. Unravelling the power dynamics that underpin and reside within the so-called big data revolution, he develops the central concept of Metric Power along with a set of conceptual resources for thinking critically about the powerful role played by metrics in the social world today.

The move to higher levels of integration has increased the fraction of application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) designs containing both analog and digital circuits. While the die area for the analog portion of these chips is modest, the design time is often significant. This has motivated the development of automated analog physical design tools for cell-level place-and-route and system-level signal-integrity-routing. To date, there is no tool that has specifically addressed the critical design task of synthesizing the power distribution for the analog portion of an analog or mixed-signal ASIC. Synthesis of Power Distribution to Manage Signal Integrity in Mixed-Signal ICs describes algorithms for analog power distribution synthesis and demonstrates their effectiveness. Existing digital power bus synthesis algorithms have failed to address critical concerns for analog circuitry, thus yielding unacceptable results. These tools synthesize only the bus component of power distribution networks and only consider simplified DC aspects of macros and busses. Readers of the companion book in this series, Simulation Techniques and Solutions for Mixed-Signal Coupling in Integrated Circuits (Kluwer Academic Publishers), already recognize the inadequacy of this simplified view of the noise and power distribution problem in mixed-signal integrated circuits. Synthesis of Power Distribution to Manage Signal Integrity in Mixed-Signal ICs addresses power distribution synthesis for mixed-signal integrated circuits. Several key challenges in power distribution design are identified and automated methods to overcome them are described. This book presents a new formulation for the analog power distribution synthesis problem which synthesizes both the power busses power I/O cell assignment by evaluating DC, AC, and transient interaction between the macros, busses, chip substrate, and package. Furthermore, algorithms are introduced which simultaneously optimize power I/O cell assignment, macro cell substrate coupling, power bus topology selection and power bus sizing. Synthesis of Power Distribution to Manage Signal Integrity in Mixed-Signal ICs will be of interest to CAD designers and researchers specializing in physical design, modelling and circuit synthesis.

The increased use of power lines to interconnect multiple generating sources has lead to increased concern for preventing vulnerability to stability problems, in which failure of a single line can ultimately lead to the unanticipated blackout of an entire area served by a particular grid. Under deregulation, transmission lines become the weak link in the supply chain, and their vulnerability to stability problems assumes greater importance. This comprehensive reference will guide you through every aspect of improving the reliability and stability of electric transmission systems, so that the likelihood of such failures can be significantly reduced. You'll find coverage of hard-to-find information, such as the effect of high-speed breakers on stability, how to calculate unbalanced faults, multi-machine stability, and power factor control.
