dissipation

[‚dis·ə′pā·shən]
(physics)
Any loss of energy, generally by conversion into heat; quantitatively, the rate at which this loss occurs. Also known as energy dissipation.

The voltage level of the clock V[PHI] exceeds that of inverted clock [V.sub.[bar.[PHI]]] by a factor of [V.sub.dd]/2, this will minimize the voltage difference between the electrodes and consequently power dissipation. Split-level sinusoidal clock charges/discharges the load capacitances comparatively slowler than the other adiabatic power clocks.
The nonadiabatic source of power dissipation in reported QSERL circuits in charging and discharging path occurs at the (MOSFET) diodes due to the threshold voltage drop, whereas in our proposed circuit, power dissipation is due to the adiabatic losses of on resistance of channels of MOSFET transistors.
Pragmatically, the crane utilizes liters of diesel fuel, while the ant utilizes millimicroliters of glucose solution--both would be reckoned to be of high quality because they have been focused by several prior dissipations. So, while a crane's work is much larger in scale than that of the ant, its power is held to be fundamentally microscopic--as many multiples of microscopic values, of course.
As meaning expands outward, it becomes increasingly vaguer, since it gets less clear which microscopic systems will actually be supported by the energy dissipations occurring over larger scale sites.
where sum of this power dissipation is equal to total power loss of investigated system [P.sub.1] + [P.sub.2] + [P.sub.3] + [P.sub.4] + [P.sub.5] + [P.sub.6] = [P.sub.total].
In Comsol simulation model we set power dissipation of first component--A to [P.sub.1] = 1 W, and together with this setting all other components will have zero power dissipation ([P.sub.2] = [P.sub.3] = [P.sub.4] = [P.sub.5] = [P.sub.6] = 0).
Determining viscous dissipation requires the velocity field to be calculated first by solving the equation of continuity (Eq.
The viscous dissipation per unit volume can be derived from the energy equation and is defined by Eq.
However, these simulations did not include an energetically consistent representation of internal tide breaking away from the generation site, explicit representation of mixing from internal waves generated by winds and subinertial flows, nor spatial and temporal variability in the dissipation vertical profile.
One of the important tenets of the CPT is the consistent use of energy, power, and the turbulent kinetic energy (KE) dissipation rate [epsilon] (dimensions of [L.sup.2][T.sup.-3]), rather than diapycnal diffusivity, as the currency of turbulent mixing; [epsilon] describes the rate at which turbulence dissipates mechanical energy at the smallest scales.
The figure 2 shows the power dissipation of closed form expression of the energy dissipation have been derived, from which inspirit of gained into the depend of energy on design process parameters.
Heat dissipation has limited the feasible packaging and performance of the VLSI chip.
