  1. 1. The Power of Symbolic Power : An Application of O'Neill's Game of Honour to Asymmetric Internal Conflict

    Författare :Ylva Isabelle Blondel; Mats Hammarstrom; Barry O'Neill; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Peace and conflict research; asymmetric power; Algeria; internationalisation; internal conflict; symbolic strategy; symbolic power; honour; game theory; public events; media audience; Freds- och konfliktforskning; Peace and conflict research; Freds- och konfliktforskning;

    Sammanfattning : Powerful states can lose wars to militarily weaker opponents. This can only be understood by moving away from an over-simplified traditional definition of power and by incorporating the symbolic dimensions of power. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Power Asymmetry Revisited : Reconciling EU Foreign Policy Goals and Enlargement Conditionality in the Western Balkans

    Författare :Jessica Giandomenico; Li Bennich-Björkman; Anna Jarstad; Andreas Bågenholm; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; EU enlargement; EU foreign policy; EU conditionality; power asymmetry; historical institutionalism; path dependence; institutional layering; Western Balkans; Macedonia; elections; Statskunskap; Political Science;

    Sammanfattning : The EU is assumed to have a strong top-down transformative power over the states applying for membership. This leverage is based on a power asymmetry where the applicant states want to join the EU more than the EU wants to enlarge, and that the applicant states gain more than the member states from the enlargement.

  3. 3. Modeling of Wind Turbines for Power System Studies

    Författare :Tomas Petru; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :flicker; fault response; power quality; wind turbine; power system stability; measurements; prediction; verification; grid simulation; modeling;

    Sammanfattning : The power quality impact of wind turbines on the electric grid and the response of the wind turbines to faults in the electric grid are investigated in this thesis. A detailed model of a stall-regulated, fixed-speed wind turbine system capable of predicting the flicker impact on the connected grid is presented and compared with field measurements. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Exkludering av invandrare i stadspolitiken : makt och maktlöshet i Örebro 1980-2000

    Författare :Marcus Johansson; Abdul Khakee; Ingemar Elander; Maritta Soininen; Örebro universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; power; exclusion; urban politics; immigrants; Swedes; policy analysis; discourse analysis; labour market; housing; culture; statskunskap; Political science; Statsvetenskap; Political Science; Statskunskap;

    Sammanfattning : The aim of this study is to analyse power structures and processes of exclusion between Swedes and immigrants in Örebro. The study applies a monopolistic approach to show that Swedes exclude immigrants to maintain a dominant power position. Exclusion is understood as a process resulting from asymmetric power relations.

  5. 5. Impulse Radio UWB for the Internet-of-Things : A Study on UHF/UWB Hybrid Solution

    Författare :Zhuo Zou; Hannu Tenhunen; Tor Sverre Lande; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Ultra-Wideband; impulse radio; IR-UWB; RFID; asymmetric links; UHF UWB hybrid; wireless sensing; energy detection; low power; radio receiver; positioning; Internet-of-Things;

    Sammanfattning : This dissertation investigates Ultra-Wideband (UWB) techniques for the next generation Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) towards the Internet-of-Things (IoT). In particular, an ultra-high frequency (UHF) wireless-powered UWB radio (UHF/UWB hybrid) with asymmetric links is explored from system architecture to circuit implementation. LÄS MER
