Nuclear Spacecraft Propulsion By Winford Rothrock
Paperback: List Price: $36.00 $18.00 | You Save: 50%
Prints in 3-5 business days
(1 Ratings)
While solar power is much more commonly used, nuclear power offers great advantages in many areas. Solar cells, although efficient, can only supply energy to spacecraft in orbits where the solar flux... More > is sufficiently high, such as low Earth orbit and interplanetary destinations close enough to the Sun. Unlike solar cells, nuclear power systems function independently of sunlight, which is necessary for deep space exploration. Nuclear reactors are especially beneficial in space because of their lower weight-to-capacity ratio than solar cells. Therefore, nuclear power systems take up much less space than solar power systems.< Less
Electrical Plants and Electric Propulsion on Ships By Marco Giuffrida
Paperback: $27.23
Prints in 3-5 business days
Electrical plants onboard modern cruise ships and offshore rigs have nowadays reached a size and complexity comparable or even superior to big industrial plants and power plants. The continuous... More > increase of the size of ships and the generally accepted adoption of electrical propulsion has led to the installation of MV power generation and distribution plants of very high power, tens of MW. Everybody who plans, manages or services these complex onboard power plants nowadays must have knowledge as well of HV plants and electrical machines, power converters, protection relays, of control and automation systems. This book intends to be an overview of technical features and planning issues of these electrical plants. It is meant to bear general validity, even if it is focused on larger ships with MV plants and electrical propulsion.< Less

Wind Energy. Electron Jet Generators and Propulsions By Alexander Bolonkin
Paperback: List Price: $21.49 $19.34 | You Save: 10%
Prints in 3-5 business days
In given book considered the topics: utilization wind energy at high altitude, transfer of energy from airborne wind turbines to ground surface, new non turbine electron wind and water electric... More > generators and propulsion system. Author offers a new method of getting electric energy from wind. A special injector injects electrons into the atmosphere. Wind picks up the electrons and moves them in the direction of wind which is also against the direction of electric field. At some distance from injector a unique grid acquires the electrons, thus charging and producing electricity. Author offers a new high efficiency propulsion non turbine system using electrons for acceleration of the craft. As this system does not heat the air, it does not have the heating limitations of conventional air ramjet hypersonic engines. Offered engine can produce a thrust from a zero flight speed up to the desired escape velocity for space launch. It can work in any planet atmosphere (gas, liquid) and at high altitude.< Less
Non-Propellant Propulsion for Space Flight By Yung-Kang (Derby) Sun
eBook (PDF): $20.00
“Non-propellant Propulsion for Space Flight” gives brief introductions of space environments, two major orbital transfer methods, various unique and breakthrough propulsive technologies,... More > and presents two of my proposed propulsive ideas with fundamental physics and understandable explanations with mathematical formula at space travels. This book provides various unconventional propulsive technologies to readers with engineering and non-engineering backgrounds to open thoughts other than the traditional views for planetary travels in the solar system. This book would encourage readers with engineering and non-engineering backgrounds to have hope for advanced and unique propulsive technologies to travel other planets through introductions of breakthrough propulsive technologies, and inspire students at high schools to establish strong interests to pursue their degrees in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) fields after enrolled into colleges and universities.< Less
