This textbook provides a coherent and comprehensive account of the different frameworks for understanding power which have been advanced within the social sciences. Though looking back to the classical literature on power with special emphasis on Machiavelli and Hobbes, the book concentrates on the modern analysis of power - from both British and American social and political theorists, and from German Critical Theory and French theorists such as Foucault - and develops upon its theory and its application. Not only does the book provide an overview of the various frameworks of power advanced by these and other influential thinkers, but it also develops a new synthesis based on important work in both the sociology of science

This approach is then applied to key questions in the comparative historical sociology of the emergence of the modern state.

Decentralized Frameworks for Future Power Systems is the first book to consider the principles and applications of decentralized decision-making in future power networks. The work opens by defining the emerging power system network as a system-of-systems (SoS) exploring the guiding principles behind optimal solutions for operation and planning problems. Chapters emphasize the role of regulations, prosumption behaviors, and the implementation of transactive energy processes as key components in decentralizing power systems. Contributors explore local markets, distribution system operation and proactive load management. The role of cryptocurrencies in smoothing transactive distributional challenges are presented. Energy system planning is reviewed, particularly in terms of consumer smart meter technologies. Distributed optimization methods are discussed in depth, including artificial intelligence, meta-heuristic, heuristic, mathematical and hybrid approaches. The work closes by considering decentralization across the cybersecurity, distributed control, market design, and power quality optimization vertices. Develops a novel framework for transactive energy management to enhance flexibility in future power systems Explores interactions between multiple entities in local power markets based on a distributed optimization approach Focuses on practical optimization, planning and control of smart grid systems towards decentralized decision-making

Ideas and Frameworks of Governing India and its companion volume Neo-liberal Strategies of Governing India tell the story of governance in independent India and address the critical question: how is a post-colonial democracy governed? Further, they attempt to understand why the process of governing a post-colonial democracy, particularly in the neo-liberal age, should be studied as the central question within the history of post-colonial democracy. The volumes offer hitherto unexplored analyses of governance — political and ideological aspects along with technological characteristics — in a historical framework. This volume discusses: ideas and issues at the core of governance in post-colonial India constitution, state-making and government formation the asymmetrical nature of the anti-colonial foundations of governance In breaking new ground in the study of what constitutes the political subject, these volumes will be indispensable to scholars, researchers and students of politics, public administration, development studies, South Asian studies and modern India.

Im ersten Teil dieser Arbeit wird ein Algorithmus vorgestellt, der spannungsabhängige Einspeisung von Wirk- und Blindleistung in den Lastfluss-Algorithmus integriert. Es wird eine Beschleunigung von bis zu einer Größenordnung gegenüber dem derzeit gängigen Verfahren, und eine verbesserte Robustheit erreicht.

Im zweiten Teil wird ein Phasor-Framework zur dynamischen Simulation von Stromnetzen vorgestellt. Die wesentliche Neuheit ist die Möglichkeit der Integration von Zustandsdiagrammen direkt in die Komponentenmodelle. Damit wird eine wesentlich schnellere Modellentwicklung ermöglicht als mit verfügbaren Tools. Im dritten Teil werden Modelle entwickelt und in das Framework integriert. Der Schwerpunkt liegt auf einem Photovoltaik-Modell welches das dynamische P(V), Q(V) und P(f) Verhalten nach VDE 4105 im Bereich Sekunden bis Minuten abbildet.

Im vierten Teil wird das entwickelte Phasor-Framework verwendet, um das Wiederzuschaltverhalten von Photovoltaikanlagen in einem dieselbetriebenen Inselnetz in der Niederspannung zu untersuchen. Die Untersuchung zeigt, dass ein periodisches Ab- und Abschalten von Photovoltaikanlagen vorkommen kann.

The problem of escalating population displacement demands global attention and country co-ordination. This book investigates the particular issue of development-induced displacement, whereby land is seized or restricted by the state for the purposes of development projects. Those displaced by these schemes often risk losses to their homes, livelihoods, food security, and socio-cultural support; for which they are rarely fully compensated. Bringing together 22 specialist researchers and practitioners from across the globe, this book provides a much-needed independent analysis of country frameworks for development-induced displacement spanning Asia, Africa, Central and South America. As global competition for land increases, public and private sector lenders are lightening their social safeguards, shifting the oversight for protecting the displaced to national law and regulations. This raises a central question: Do countries have effective ways of addressing the risks and lost opportunities for their people who are displaced? While many countries remain impervious to the problem, the book also shines a light on the few who are pioneering new legislation and strategies, intended to address questions such as: should the social costs to those displaced help determine whether a project meets the public interest and merits financing? Does the modern state need powers of eminent domain? How can country laws, systems, institutions and negotiations be reformed to protect citizens better against disempowering public and private sector development displacement? This book will interest those working on forced and voluntary migration, property and expropriation law, human rights, environmental and social impact assessment, internal and refugee displacement from conflicts, environment change, disasters and development.

Islamic banking is growing rapidly and its potential impact on global financial stability cannot be underestimated. International standards for resolving banks have evolved after the global financial crisis, culminating in the Financial Stability Board’s (“FSB”) Key Attributes of Effective Resolution Regimes for Financial Institutions. This paper examines the applicability of the Key Attributes to the resolution of Islamic banks. It concludes that a number of issues would need to be addressed, owing to Islamic banks’ unique governance structures and balance sheets. It recommends international guidance for the design of robust Shari`ah -compliant resolution frameworks for jurisdictions with Islamic banks.

The book advances the state of the European Union?s policy theory by taking stock of seven promising frameworks of the policy process, systematically comparing their limitations and strengths, and offering a strategy to develop robust research agendas. Frameworks may constitute competing policy explanations depending on assumptions they make about EU institutional and issue complexity. The frameworks include detailed analyses of multi-level governance, advocacy coalitions, punctuated equilibrium, multiple streams, policy learning, normative power Europe, and constructivism. Besides generating a fertile dialogue that transcends the narrow confines of EU policy, contributions highlight the value of intellectual pluralism and the need for clear and rigorous explanations of the policy process. This book was published as a special issue of the Journal of European Public Policy.
