Abstract

Moc bierna jest wielkością energetyczną charakterystyczną dla elektrotechniki i występuje w obwodach prądu przemiennego. Jest to w istocie pojęcie techniczne, wykorzystywane do opisu zjawisk odnoszących się do problematyki racjonalnego gospodarowania energią. Do pojęcia mocy i energii biernej odwołują się krajowe dokumenty i akty prawne, również wysokiego rzędu. Ogólnie regulowane są tam kwestie dotyczące problemów technicznych, w tym efektywności energetycznej oraz rozliczeń finansowych. Referat identyfikuje i porusza istotniejsze zagadnienia związane z aktualną problematyką mocy biernej w ramach obecnych i spodziewanych wyzwań, jakie stoją przed energetyką, również w kontekście popularyzacji rozwiązań proefektywnościowych i prosumenckich, ze wzrastającym udziałem generacji rozproszonej. Analizując i przedstawiając zakres problematyki mocy biernej, począwszy od zasygnalizowania problemów definicyjnych, wyszczególnienia krajowych aktów prawnych, poprzez analizę kwestii związanej z poprawą efektywności energetycznej do kwestii rozliczeń finansowych za energię bierną, odniesiono się do aktualnych wyzwań wynikających z nowych trendów w użytkowaniu energii. Z przedstawionego przeglądu zagadnień wyłania się obraz wymagający uporządkowania, monitorowania i dalszej analizy omawianych problemów. Dotyczy to działań nie tylko na poziomie krajowym, warto również zaangażować odpowiednie gremia międzynarodowe.

Abstract

An overview of the important techniques for detection of optical radiation from the ultraviolet, through visible to infrared spectral regions is presented. At the beginning single-point devices are considered. Next, di.erent application circuits used in direct detection systems together with elucidation of the design of front-end circuits and discussion of their performance are presented. Third part of the paper is devoted to advanced techniques including coherent detection. Finally, the updated information devoted to readout of signals from detector arrays and focal plane arrays is included. It is shown that detector focal plane technology has revolutionized many kinds of imaging in the past 25 years.

Abstract

The paper presents verification of a peak detection method cooperating with infrared radiation detector module applications. The work has been divided into parts including SPICE simulations and presentation of results obtained with the constructed prototype. The design of the peak detector dedicated to applications with very short pulses requires a different approach than that for standard solutions. It is mainly caused due to the ratio of pulse width and time period. In the described application this ratio is less than 10%. The paper shows testing of an analogue circuit which is capable to be inserted in these applications.

Abstract

Detection of explosives vapors is an extremely difficult task. The sensitivity of currently constructed detectors is often insufficient. The paper presents a description of an explosive vapors concentrator that improves the detection limit of some explosives detectors. These detectors have been developed at the Institute of Optoelectronics. The concentrator is especially dedicated to operate with nitrogen oxide detectors. Preliminary measurements show that using the concentrator, the recorded amount of nitrogen dioxide released from a 0.5 ng sample of TNT increases by a factor of approx. 20. In the concentrator an induction heater is applied. Thanks to this and because of the miniaturization of the container with an adsorbing material (approx. 1 cm3), an extremely high rate of temperature growth is achieved (up to 500 °C within approx. 25 s). The concentration process is controlled by a microcontroller. Compact construction and battery power supply provide a possibility of using the concentrator as a portable device.

Abstract

The paper describes an integrated laser absorption system as a potential tool for breath analysis for clinical diagnostics, online therapy monitoring and metabolic disorder control. The sensors operate basing on cavity enhanced spectroscopy and multi-pass spectroscopy supported by wavelength modulation spectroscopy. The aspects concerning selection of operational spectral range and minimization of interference are also discussed. Tests results of the constructed devices collected with reference samples of biomarkers are also presented. The obtained data provide an opportunity to analyse applicability of optoelectronic sensors in medical screening.
