"A groundbreaking scientific approach to solving enterprise applications performance problemsEnterprise applications are the information backbone of today's corporations, supporting vital business functions such as operational management, supply chain maintenance, customer relationship administration, business intelligence, accounting, procurement logistics, and more. Acceptable performance of enterprise applications is critical for a company's day-to-day operations as well as for its profitability.Unfortunately, troubleshooting poorly performing enterprise applications has traditionally relied upon a trial-and-error series of actions rather than a systematic, scientific methodology.Written by the Consulting Technical Director of Oracle Corporation, one of the largest enterprise software providers in the world, this groundbreaking book frames enterprise applications performance engineering as an applied science built on a model-based foundation. Readers will discover how queuing models of enterprise applications can be used to visualize, demystify, explain, and help to solve the performance issues of many applications. The author demonstrates how these queuing models help discover the critical connections among users' workloads, hardware architecture, and software parameters.Without resorting to complex mathematics, Solving Enterprise Applications Performance Puzzles covers such important topics as: Performance Puzzles covers such important topics as: Queuing networks as application models; Building and solving application models; User's workload characterization; Servers, CPUs, and other building blocks of application scalability; Software bottlenecks; Performance and capacity of virtual systems. Model-based application sizingThroughout the book, readers will find tables and charts summarizi ng and visualizing important data. In addition, readers will find plenty of illustrations to help them better understand the core drivers of application performance.Solving Enterprise Applications Performance Puzzles offers performance engineers, programmers, and systems analysts a new perspective on why enterprise applications can underperform and fail to support businesses. It puts forward a scientific approach for discovering the underlying problems and correcting them." -- Publisher's website.

This book bridges the divide between the fields of power systems engineering and computer communication through the new field of power system information theory. Written by an expert with vast experience in the field, this book explores the smart grid from generation to consumption, both as it is planned today and how it will evolve tomorrow. The book focuses upon what differentiates the smart grid from the "traditional" power grid as it has been known for the last century. Furthermore, the author provides the reader with a fundamental understanding of both power systems and communication networking. It shows the complexity and operational requirements of the evolving power grid, the so-called "smart grid," to the communication networking engineer; and similarly, it shows the complexity and operational requirements for communications to the power systems engineer. The book is divided into three parts. Part One discusses the basic operation of the electric power grid, covering fundamental knowledge that is assumed in Parts Two and Three. Part Two introduces communications and networking, which are critical enablers for the smart grid. It also considers how communication and networking will evolve as technology develops. This lays the foundation for Part Three, which utilizes communication within the power grid. Part Three draws heavily upon both the embedded intelligence within the power grid and current research, anticipating how and where computational intelligence will be implemented within the smart grid. Each part is divided into chapters and each chapter has a set of questions useful for exercising the readers' understanding of the material in that chapter. Key Features: Bridges the gap between power systems and communications experts Addresses the smart grid from generation to consumption, both as it is planned today and how it will likely evolve tomorrow Explores the smart grid from the perspective of traditional power systems as well as from communications Discusses power systems, communications, and machine learning that all define the smart grid It introduces the new field of power system information theory

This book considers the emerging technologies and methodologies of the application of computational intelligence to smart grids. From a conceptual point of view, the smart grid is the convergence of information and operational technologies applied to the electric grid, allowing sustainable options to customers and improved levels of security. Smart grid technologies include advanced sensing systems, two-way high-speed communications, monitoring and enterprise analysis software, and related services used to obtain location-specific and real-time actionable data for the provision of enhanced services for both system operators (i.e. distribution automation, asset management, advanced metering infrastructure) and end-users (i.e. demand side management, demand response). In this context, a crucial issue is how to support the evolution of existing electrical grids from static hierarchal systems to self-organizing, highly scalable and pervasive networks. Modern trends are oriented toward the employment of computational intelligence techniques for deploying advanced control, protection and monitoring architectures that move away from the older centralized paradigm to systems distributed across the field with an increasing pervasion of intelligence devices. The large-scale deployment of computational intelligence technologies in smart grids could lead to a more efficient tasks distribution amongst energy resources and, consequently, to a sensible improvement of the electrical grid flexibility.
