  1. 1. Causal Facts

    Författare :Johannes Persson; Teoretisk filosofi; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; causation; trope; disposition; causal explanation; causal law; Philosophical logic; counterfactual conditional; causal mechanism; Teoretisk filosofi; logik;

    Sammanfattning : The thesis addresses the nature of causation. It is argued that causation exists and is as local as its causes and effects. As a consequence, the position advocated is contrary to the as yet prevailing view that no 'causal tie' between cause and effect exists. Moreover, it is suggested that this tie can be perceived.

  2. 2. Violent female offenders : Facts and preconceptions

    Författare :Jenny Yourstone; Torun Lindholm; Ola Svenson; Martin Grann; Pekka Santtila; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Female; Violence; Crime; Psychosocial background; Gender bias; Stereotypes; In-group bias; Forensic psychiatry; Mental disorders; Legal insanity; Psychology; Psykologi; psykologi; Psychology;

    Sammanfattning : Women’s comparably low participation in criminal activity has resulted in little overall attention to female offenders in criminological research. The general aim of the present thesis is to illuminate aspects of particular significance for understanding female perpetrators of very serious crimes. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : This work presents an account of social power based on recent advances in social ontology. It is argued that a conceptual analysis of social power can be informed by developments in social ontology, but also that this field can be enriched, and in fact requires, an analysis of this central social concept.

  5. 5. Power System Stability Enhancement Using Shunt-connected Power Electronic Devices with Active Power Injection Capability

    Författare :Mebtu Bihonegn Beza; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Power Oscillation Damping POD ; energy storage; Adaptive estimation; Static Synchronous Compensator STATCOM ; Recursive Least Square RLS ; Transient Stability Enhancement TSE ; FACTS; Static Var Compensator SVC ;

    Sammanfattning : Power electronic devices such as Flexible AC Transmission Systems (FACTS), both in shunt and series configuration, are widely used in the power system for power flow control, to increase the loading capability of an existing line and to increase the security of the system by enhancing its transient stability. Among the shunt-connected FACTS controllers family, the Static Synchronous Compensator (STATCOM) and the Static Var Compensator (SVC) are two key devices for reinforcing the stability of the AC power system.
