3 c) Nearly 80% young people use the internet every day. Most people use it sensibly, but between five and ten per cent of internet users are addicted (spend too much time) to the web and psychologists now recognized this as a problem. Read the user s answers the psychologists questions and give yours. 1. How do you use the internet? 2. Do you think you spend too much time on the internet? Why?/Why not? 3. What are the positive and negative sides of the internet? Sean (18) I go on the internet every day. I ve got a laptop and a smartphone, so I can use the internet anywhere. Today I ve been online three times. Mainly, I chat or play games. I often look for information, read online magazines or just friends. I also compare prices of things, but I ve never bought any online because I don t think it s safe. I m not an internet addict, but some of my friends are. One friend always looks tired because he spends all night online. Although he s failed some exams he hasn t changed his habits. In my opinion, an internet addiction is a serious problem. If you ve been on the internet for forty-eight hours non-stop your idea of reality changes. This can happen to real addicts who often feel tired, depressed and isolated. The problem is with the person, not with the activity. These people need help. Answer the questions: 1. How often does Sean go online? 2. Does he know any internet addicts? 3. Why does he consider an internet addiction a problem? d) Read the comments about use of the internet. Match each comment to the adjectives describing how people feel. a depressed b excited c guilty d bored e sympathetic _ 1. I don t think there s anything interesting on the internet. _ 2. On my computer I ve got a camera and I can see people when I m chatting to them. It s great! _ 3 I ve met this boy in a chat room. He s got terrible problems at home. I told him I know what it s like. Things are difficult at home for me too. _ 4. I joined a social networking site because I thought it would make me feel better. But it doesn t. Everyone is having a good time except me. _ 5. I had an argument with my best friend and a posted a message on Facebook about him that wasn t true. Lots of people saw it and now I feel really bad. I want to apologize to him but I don t know how. Module 1 My profession A. Electricity and circuits 1.

4 5.1 Read the text, answer the questions and do the task below. 1. Why is a three-phase AC better for high power applications? 2. What main parts does the basic electrical system consist of? 3. What devices protect circuits? 4. How have ICs changed speed and reliability of devices? Electrical systems involve the use of circuits. Current - a flow electricity through a circuit - can be direct (DC) or alternating (AC). The rate at which current alternates is called the frequency and measured in hertz (Hz). In can be 50 or 60 Hz in different counties. Power plants generate a three-phase AC. These are three single phases synchronized and offset (leg behind) by 120 degrees from each other. Threephase systems are well suited to high power applications. They provide a smoother work by reducing the gaps between the voltage peaks. The amount of current flowing through the circuit depends on resistance of the conductors and the components in the circuit. Silver, copper - the metals with low resistance - are good conductors. The conductor can be single wire (a solid wire) or several strands of wire grouped together (a stranded wire). An electrical cable has several conductors, separately covered with insulation (highly-resistant plastic), grouped within a second outer layer of insulation. Touching a live conductor (carrying current) can cause a dangerous electric shock. The basic electrical system has four main parts: the source (a battery or a generator), the load (any appliance), the transmission system (usually insulated wires) and the control apparatus (switches, fuses, ammeters, voltmeters, wattmeters, etc.). A source supplies energy to a system. A load accepts energy from a system. The transmission system conducts energy from the source to the load. The control apparatus controls of the energy flow and can interrupt it in case of overloading. An AC supply enters a building to reach sockets for plugs on appliances. Hot bus bars (power supply) are attached to the switchboard. It has a number of switches to allow different circuits in the building to be switched on and off. A circuit breaker is a primary safety switch installed on each branch circuit for its protecting from system faults, mainly short circuits. A short circuit - a sudden surge (increase) of current within milliseconds - happens during the contact of two points with different electric potentials because of, for example, damaged insulation. It can ruin equipment. Protective relay systems detect abnormal conditions and direct one or more circuit breakers to open. Fuses - the other safety switches - break local circuits by melting and must be replaced afterwards. The circuits can be printed on printed circuit boards (PCBs) or integrated (ICs) on microchips. Before the invention of integrated circuits in 1959, circuits had been formed from discrete components connected with wires. They consumed much space, important to me. But I knew very well it was impossible. Then when I was thirty it was suddenly there. I m still impressed. David, 18 To tell the truth, I don t get so impressed by new gadgets. I like them and I use them a lot but I m not especially surprised when a new one appears. OK, I was impressed when iphones first came out because they really do everything. But in general, there is always something new every year. You get used to it: you expect things to be this way. Questions: - Do you agree with David? (I fully/partly agree with ) Give reasons. - Do you stick to one gadget or try to use a new one - more effective? - Are your parents as techie as you are or are you smarter dealing with hi-tech devices? c) Which of the gadgets is your favourite? What do you like about it? Ex. My favourite gadget is my smartphone. I like watching You Tube videos on it Listen to a TV program and tick the technolody the expert mentions. 1. wind-up laptops 2 laptops with flexible screens 3 3D laptops 4 internet-enable TVs 5 3D TVs 6 mobile phones with flexinle screens Listen again. What if any will be the advantages of each piece of technology? Which gadgets do you think will exict in the future? Make a list of idas with the class. (I think/ in my opinion _ will+v ) Do you know any one who is addicted to any form of technology? What are their symptoms? 8.13 Socialising through the internet. a) Put the word in the brackets in the correct form. Educating the whole person The world is changing faster than ever before. Nobody knows what the future will look like and exactly what skills you will need to be (1) (success) _. Unfortunately, nearly all educational systems focus too much on (2) (know) _ and intellectual skills. The importance of (3) (create) _ is not always appreciated. But if you don t get a chance to discover your creative side, your (4) (develop) _ is not complete. Another important area thet everyone needs to learn is people skill such as being (5) (communicate) _ and sensitive to others. Do you agree with the opinions? b) Do you agree with the sayings? 4 57

The picture on our new _ is amazingly clear. b) Read about the parent-children attitude to hi-tech devices and answer the questions. Mum, 42 My favourite tech device is nothing very original: the mobile phone. However, there s a special reason why I m so fond of it. When I was a little girl, I dreamed of a phone that I could always carry with me, so I d always be able to get in touch with my parents or my friends, that was very 56 power and were limited in speed, although they are still common in some applications. Any IC is the assembly of interconnected microscopic electronic components such as transistors, diodes, capacitors and resistors packed as a single unit (a chip) of a coin size on a wafer(a plate) of semiconducting material - silicon or germanium. Early ICs of the late 1950s consisted of about 10 components on 0.12 in. (3 mm) chip square. Very large-scale integration (VLSI) vastly increased circuit density, giving rise to the microprocessor. The first commercially successful IC chip (Intel, 1974) had 4,800 transistors; Intel's Pentium (1993) had 3.2 million, and more than a billion are now achievable. In the 1970s a central processing unit (CPU) was placed within one chip. Today not only one but two, four and more CPU cores are built on a single chip. Many microprocessors are parts of embedded systems providing digital control of a great number (myriad) of objects from appliances to automobiles to mobile phones and industrial process control. A microprocessor is the integrated circuit that contains the arithmetic, logic, and control circuitry needed to function as a digital computer's CPU. 5.2 Make word combinations with a) electric b) circuit using words below.

In pairs, discuss the clues that told you if the conversation was formal or informal. 8.8 Complete the crossword, then rearrange the letters in the dark squares to find the mystery word. 8. The safety earthing system. Electric shock. Read the text and answer the questions. 1What does an earthing system serve for? 2. What parts are called dead (live)? 3. When does danger of electric shock disappear? (Use photos) 4. In what air does the risk of an electric shock decrease? The strength of current depends on both the voltage and the resistance in a circuit. A current of 50 ma is dangerous for a man and a current of 100 ma and higher is lethal. Earth system serves to protect attending personnel from electric shocks when voltage appears on the parts that are normally dead. The risk of electric shock decreases with decreasing voltage. In wet and hot atmosphere the risk of electric shock increases. Safe voltage for circuits used in dry atmosphere is under 36 V. When the power is on, contacts with live conductors are dangerous for life. The dan- 8.9 Read the notice and prompts about writing them. 6 55

In the case of carbon resistors their resistance is identified by a colour rings (bands), painted around the resistor. The colour bands show the value from 0 to 9. The first two bands are the first two digits of the resistance. The third band is the multiplier. It tells you the number of zeroes (noughts) to add after first two digits. The final band is the tolerance (допуск). On the resistor shown above, orange = 3, orange = 3, black = 0; so the resistance is 33 Ω. For many very small resistors, especially the metal-oxide ones, instead of the colour coding the letter code is applied. Questions 1. What do colour bands show on the resistors? 2. What do the first two bands mean? 3. What does the third band tell you? 4. What is the fourth band for? Work in pairs. Tell your partner the colours of the first three bands of a resistor. Then determine the resistance. A. My colours are purple, then green, the red. B. OK, so that s 75 Ω. A. Correct. Now is your turn. B. OK. My colours are yellow, purple and red. A. That s 4700 Ω or 4.7KΩ. 7

8 11. Electronic circuits 11.1 Read the text Components of electronic circuits and answer the questions. 1. What is the most important component of electronic circuit? 2 What is difference between two types of capacitors? 3. Why a diode can be called the switch of an electronic circuit? 4. What component is sensitive to temperature? 3. What basic logic gates do you know? Transistors contain tiny chips of semi-conductor materials. They can be used as switchers, amplifiers and oscillators. Diodes allow current to flow only in one direction, acting as electronic valves. A light emitting diode (LED) produces light when a current flows through it. Capacitors store electricity in order to smooth the flow. They can be charged and discharged. The two most common capacitors are ceramic and electrolytic. They are particularly important in high frequency devices such as radios. Electrolytic capacitors are usually larger. They can be connected in one way only and are used, for example, in power supplies. Relays are electromagnetic switches, which use electromagnets. Potentiometers, variable resistors, are used to change the resistance in a circuit easily. Fixed resistors have standard values. Thermistors vary in resistance according to temperature. Logic gates are integrated circuits, which provide the basic logic functions used in computers and other devices which use digital electronics. Signals in digital circuits are either on (1) or off (0). Basic logic gates include AND, OR, NAND and NOR Circuit symbol diagrams Study the symbol diagrams and make short dialogues with your partner.

A brief history of mobile phones 1G, First Generation mobile (cellular) phones started in the 1980s when Motorola introduced the first hand-held phones. They used analogue technology and the main drawback was the small number of channels that could be used at a time. In the 1990s 2G mobiles introduced - digital transmission methods, that converted voice into binary information; - the common standard - Global System for Mobile communicions (GSM), - SIM (subscriber s identity module) cards - the cards with the user's info, - the SMS (short message service), texting; - a change of a service provider without changing the handset. The second and half generation (2.5G) phones worked on the same network protocol as 2G, but the Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) and the General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) were added. These enable mobile phones to access certain websites. In addition, some 2.5 phones had coloured screens and cameras. The phones of the third generation (3G) are based on the acompletely new communication standard, Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS), with the broadband Internet access and multitasking. 3G smart phones are produced on the platform of the Personal Digital Assistants (PDA) with operating systems (OS) and the set of applications including multimedia, the GPS, providing financial transactions (making payments, selling stocks), s at any time (act as a modem), etc. The most common mobile operating systems (OS) used by modern smartphones include Apple's ios, Google's Android, Microsoft's Windows Phone, Nokia's Symbian, RIM's BlackBerry OS and embedded Linux distributions such as Maemo and MeeGo. 4G phones are launched with an emphasis on a full high-speed Internet access via Wi-Fi and mobile broadband, a real-time television and radio, the diversity of applications. The developments include holophones, which project three-dimentional moving images of the owners and remote-control a car via your phone. Mobile phones are sure to have exciting future. a) Decide if these sentences are true or false. If they are false, correct them. - 1G phones had a slower transmission speed than 2G. - 2G phones introduced analogue technology. - GSM started to be used in the 80s. - Smart phones can be used for other purposes, e.g. as a personal digital assistant. - People won't be able to watch live TV on 4G phones. 51

Since then mobile phones have changed into smart multitasking devices we can t live without. 50 maintain and repair electrical wiring, fixtures and control equipment. This includes troubleshooting when things go wrong. A lot of my work is outdoors. I work in all kinds of weather. Sometimes I work in very high places. During any working week, I use all of my personal protective equipment (PPE): a hard hat, safety glasses with side shields, safety shoes, safety gloves, hearing protection, safety harness (привязные ремни безопасности) and breathing apparatus. I also use a special insulating rubber matting. I can stand or sit on it when I work. It reduces the risk of shock. Electricity creates two main hazards. The first is electrocution. It electricity enters your body, it can burn your badly or kill you. The other hazard is a spark. Sparks are generally hazardous, but especially in the oil and gas industry. If there is a spark in an area with flammable gas, of course there can be explosion. I work very carefully and check everything. Is the electricity switched off? Am I using the right PPE? And other electricians check my work too. We look out for each other. Guess the meaning of highlighted words: hazards = risks, dangers; flame =fire. Check it with a dictionary.

Electrical engineering - sometimes referred to as electrical and electronic engineering - is an engineering field that deals with the study and application of electricity, electronics and electromagnetism. It became an identifiable occupation in the late of the nineteenth century after commercialization of the electric telegraph and electrical power supply. Traditionally electrical engineering is considered to deal with the problems associated with large-scale electrical systems such as power transmission and motor control, whereas electronic engineering comprises smallscale electronic systems including computers and integrated circuits. Recently the difference hasn t become so sharp by the growth of power electronics. Now this dynamic, hi-tech branch of engineering covers the range of fields including electric power and machinery, computers and electronics, communications and control. 2. Working in this direction you may have a specialized job doing anything from light and power to designing and installing new hardware platforms; conducting networking and automation; operating virtual enterprises, internet and fiber-optics. Typical work environments include production and manufacturing industries.

Extracting the video and audio via the monitor and speakers. Ex.: First, it s necessary to launch the communications satellite. Or first, the communications satellite is launched. Then /next/after that/further on /finally 7.5 Grammar: the gerund (V+ ing) The gerund is used after some verbs: avoid, enjoy, risk, delay, spend time/money, suggest, mind - I enjoy using the GPS navigator. Avoid ignoring safety rules. prepositions - By clicking on the link you can move to another page. The gerund can function as a subject of the sentence. Propagating (transmitting) electromagnetic energy at radio frequencies was discovered by Tesla. an object - I like driving. an adverbial modifier (обстоятельство) - After installing the system they can watch 100 channels. 7.6 a) Read the article and express your for and against opinion about TV now.

13 c) Read the text and answer the questions. 1. What type of broadcasting uses radio waves? 2. What problems were these with this system? 3. What is binary code? 4. How can TVs receive digital information? Name four routes. 5. Does a decoder have to be inside a TV? 6. What is the difference between an HDTV and a standard TV? Broadcasting When television first started, the system of broadcasting was analogue. This meant that a TV aerial received radio waves from the TV companies. These transformed into sound and images on the TV screen. At the time the system was revolutionary, but it wasn t perfect. It couldn t transmit many channels and the quality of the pictures was sometimes poor because of interference. For a long time there was only analogue TV, but at the end of the 1990s digital TV arrived. Digital TV doesn t use radio waves. Instead, it converts sound and images into binary code. This is a computer language which consists of 0 and 1 and broadcasters can use it to send a lot of information very quickly. This digital information arrives at TV via an aerial, a cable, a satellite dish or broadband. Then a decoder converts the information back to sound and images. Decoders are either inside a TV or computer or in a separate box, which is connected to it. Digital broadcasting is much better than the analogue system. Digital TV provides a better quality of picture and sound (because there is less interference) and allows broadcasters to deliver more channels. Picture quality is even better on a high definition TV (an HDTV) than on a standard TV, so viewers can enjoy cinemaquality pictures in their own home. d) Compare the technology that was in the past with the technology that is available now. watching films at home Ex.: In the past, people watched films at home on video cassettes. After that people mainly used DVDs. These days people often watch films online. listening to music communicating with friends photography e) Activate: answer the questions. 1. What type of TV is most common in your region - digital or analogue? 2. Where can you receive cable TV? What are the advantages of it? 3. What technology has your home got for receiving TV? 4. Which are more common in your area aerials or satellite dishes? are plenty of well-paid, cutting-edge jobs there, and the diversity of jobs allows you to choose the one that suits you best. 3. Electrical engineers must have at least a Bachelor's degree with the major in electrical engineering (a Bachelor of Science, a Bachelor of Engineering) for almost all entry-level engineering jobs. The next step in the career is to get the license of Professional Engineer. You have to get the upgraded professional skill and the required working experience. In the USA and Canada only a licensed engineer provides engineering work for public and private clients. 4. Companies seeking to recruit new graduates frequently take part in the "Milk round". This means they visit universities and colleges, invite students to attend presentations and conduct interviews with those who are interested in employment. There is competition to recruit the most able students. The "virtual milk round" is where this system of recruitment is provided over the Internet. 5. Your curriculum vitae (CV) is one of the most important documents presented to a potential employer. It lists academic achievements and work experience with relevant personal information. It must be written to hold the employer's attention and provide the essential information. Employers often ask applicants to supply a covering letter with their CV. This allows the applicant to go into more details as to why they are suitable for the job and they have the opportunity to address the employer on a more personal level Decide if the statement is a. true b. false c. ther is no information Electrical engineering (EEng.) deals only with large-scale electrical systems. EEng. offers the diversity of hi-tech jobs.electrical engineers are usually concerned with using electricity to transmit energy, while electronic engineers are dealt with using electricity to process information.

In many regions of the world, governments maintain an electrical network called a power grid that connects a variety of generators together with users. Electricity is used for heating, cooling, cooking, refrigeration, lighting, computation, entertainment. Electricity is generated at power stations. Now they are controlled by satellite with feedback in real time. It helps to prevent power surges and blackouts. A three-phase AC from the power stations is fed through step-up transformers to the high voltage (275kV, 440kV or 770kV) transmission lines- the grid and is transmitted around the country. High voltage reduces energy losses for long distances. It is transported to the local suppliers via transmission towers and overhead lines. The power supply then is stepped-down in stages at intermediate substations to 11 kv for plants; at distribution substations to V, 3-phase and to 240 V, 1-phase and is delivered to the domestic consumers. A power substation has the equipment such as transformers that step transmission voltages down to distribution voltage, a "bus" that splits the distribution power off in multiple directions, circuit breakers and switches that disconnect the substation from the transmission grid or from distribution lines when it is necessary. All power towers have three wires for the three phases. Many towers have extra ground wires running along the tops of the towers to prevent from lightning. 21

22 Regulator banks, regulating the voltage on the line, are located along the line either underground or in the air. Tree switches up toward the top allow a regulator bank to be disconnected for maintenance when necessary. A house needs only one of the three phases, so typically you will see three wires running down a main road, and taps for one or two of the phases running off on side streets. A typical house runs a set of poles with one phase of power and a ground wire. At each house, there is a transformer drum attached to the pole. It reduces the power supply to 240 volts that makes up normal household electrical service. The 240 volts enters your house through a typical watt-hour meter. 2.1 Choose the suitable word from the brackets. Then put the sentences in the correct order. a After the step-up transformer the current enters a (distribution/transmission) line. b Current is produced by electromagnetic induction in the (magnet/field coils) of a generator. c The current goes from the last step-down transformer to a (distribution/transmission) line. d The current leaves the power (grid/station) and enters the home. e Amperage is reduced and voltage is increased by a (step-up/step-down) transformer. 3.

25 4.2 Read the text and do tasks below a comparator - компаратор (сравнивающее устройство) a transducer - преобразователь, датчик to set off отправляться, выступать to trigger - запускать, вызывать Control systems The basic control system consists of input (the set) and output (the reset) signals, a comparator, a controller and a driven device with a transducer. The device producing the feedback signal is called a transducer. In a comparator the feedback and input signals are compared. The difference is the error that is supplied to the controller. This is the device, which causes a motor to cause the required output movement. A sensor is a type of transducer, a device that detects or senses a signal or a physical condition (movement, smoke, heat, etc.) and sends the data to a computer or a display. Most sensors are electrical or electronic. They are either direct indicating (e.g. a mercury thermometer or electrical meter) or are paired with an indicator (perhaps indirectly through an analog to digital converter, a computer and a display) so that the value sensed becomes readable. Sitting in a room, you might want to know its temperature looking at a digital display. The sensor either provides e.m.f. proportional to the temperature. An analogue signal is produced and it varies with the temperature. The small signal needs to be amplified by a linear amplifier and then it is applied to an A/D converter. The output from the converter it is applied to a logic controller, which samples the signal at regular intervals and the binary signal is fed to the display. Sensors are used in medicine, industry and robotics. 4.2 a) Answer the qustions. 1. What is a transducer? 2. What is comparator used for? 3. What do sensors detect? 4.

A lathe a machine that shapes pieces of wood or metal by holding and turning their against a fixed cutting tool. A grinder - a power tool fitted with an abrasive disk that cut or shape metal and stone. An angle grinder is hand-held, and a bench grinder is mounted on a workbench. CNC systems are used to fabricate complex machine parts by allowing a computer to control the machine tools with great precision (точностью). 26 For a new type of a product to facilitate changeover it required long equipment reprogramming. A numerical-control machine tool is an example of programmable automation. The program is coded in computer memory for each product type and the machine tool is controlled by the computer program. In flexible automation the number of products is limited, so the changeover of the equipment can be done quickly and automatically. The reprogramming of the equipment is done at a computer terminal without using the production equipment itself. Flexible automation allows a mixture of different products to be produced one right after another. The feedback principal is used in all automatic-control mechanisms when devices and machines have ability to correct themselves. They can start, stop, speed up, slow down, count, inspect, compare, measure, etc. Computers greatly facilitate the use of feedback in manufacturing processes. They can monitor and control the operation of the whole factory. Computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacture (CAM) technologies make possible to develop and manufacture goods with required parameters. Industrial robots, originally designed only to perform simple tasks in environments dangerous to human workers, are now widely used to transfer, manipulate, and position both light and heavy things performing all the functions of a transfer machines. Many industries are highly automated or use automation technology in some parts of the operation. Railways are controlled by automatic signaling devices, which have sensors that detect carriages passing a particular point. In the telephone industry dialing and transmission are done automatically. 4 Control systems 4.1 Look at the alarm control panel and complete the instructions.

Wind farms consisting of number of turbines are constructed both on the high ground and offshore. Wind speeds increase with height, so turbines are mounted on towers meters in height. The rotor blades capture the wind and transfer its power to the rotor hub, which is attached to the low-speed shaft of the turbine. Each rotor blade measures about 27 meters in length and is designed like an aeroplane wing. The rotor rotates slowly at about 30r.p.m. The nacelle, the casing at the top of the tower, contains the most important components including the gearbox, a generator and a сontroller (computer). The low-speed shaft transmits power from a hub to the gearbox. It increases the speed of the rotor shaft by about drives 50 times. The high-speed shaft drives the generator. It has a mechanical disc brake for emergency. The generator produces electricity. On a large turbine the power generated is between 60-3,000 KW and it is sent by cable to the national grid. The anemometer and wind on the top of the housing measure the speed and direction of the wind respectively and send this information to the controller. It activates the motor, which turns the rotor into the wind. It starts the Fiber lasers for industrial welding, cutting 8.1 Complete the following tips of emphasizing technical advantages, using the words in the box. conventional eliminated enhanced reduced superior When describing technical advantages, it s useful to emphasize: a (1) _ performance, compared with the older model of the same product; b negative issues that have been (2) _, or completely (3) _; c special features that differentiate the technology from (4) _ systems; d performance level that make the technology (5) _ to the competition. 8.2 Read the text and answer the questions. 1. Why are they called fiber lasers? 2. Where are they used? 3.Who got the Nobel prize for invention? 4. What new opportunities do fiber lasers provide? 5. Where can they be installed? 6. What is latest laser invention? Fiber lasers A fiber laser is a laser (light amplification of stimulated emission of radiation), in which the active medium is an optical fiber doped with ions of rare-earth elements such as erbium, neodymium, and ytterbium. They are available in pulsed or continuous wave mode of operation. Fiber lasers are now the industrial standard for laser cutting, welding, marking and engraving (гравировка) applications covering industrial, defense, aerospace, biomedical, telecommunications and research areas. In 1967 Morton Panish and Izuo Hayashi at Bell Labs (the USA) proposed basic requirements for such lasers. In 1970 they and Zhorez Alferov (Russia) at the Ioffe Institute, demonstrated the invention. Later they got the Nobel Prize in Physics for the discovery. Using very powerful beam of light (up to ten times more energy efficient than traditional CO 2 lasers), lasers are easily manipulated by robots allowing a number of 3D applications and faster processing across a wide range of materials. Now these lasers are mainly used in telecommunications, where the signal transmitted over long distances (such as over the ocean) must be amplified along the way. They have no optics to adjust or align and no lamps to replace. Maintenance is minimal and so utilization and up-times are maximized. Fiber laser are really designed as shop floor industrial tools. The latest laser invention is creating by American researchers the tiniest laser that is tinier than a protein molecule of 5nm wide. Using light instead of electrons to process information will lead to more power efficient superfast computers, advanced sensors and imaging. 29

Form antonyms of highlighted words. stainless steel нержавеющая сталь a distortion rate степень искажения brass латунь, doped легированный coiled спирально свёрнутый Advantages 1 2 Antonym - high optical quality and reliability - greater energy efficiency, high output - high welding speed - specially optimized for cutting - easy to use - easy to integrate - a small heat-affected zone (HAZ) - a low distortion rate - processing across a wide variety of materials: metals and non-metals - a variety of applications - a compact size, can be bent and coiled to save space - can be installed on the cutting table - a long maintenance cycle, extended lifetime - eliminated maintenance cost 8.4 In small groups tell about the laser application you consider the breakthrough (прорыв) in: information technologies medicine entertainment everyday life. 9. Renewable energy 9.1 Match the words (1-6) with their definitions (a-f) 30 Words: 1. to deplete обеднять 3. to embed внедрять 2. diminish убывать 4. emission излучение 5.nuclear fission деление атомного ядра Over 80 per cent of the world s electricity is generated from conventional methods - fossil fuels or by nuclear fission. Some countries are no longer selfsufficient in energy and are net importers of natural gas. The need both to conserve diminishing reserves of fossil fuels and to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, which are harmful for the environment and health, is leading to a rapid development of renewable technology. Renewable energy is not depleted by continuous use and origin of its sources is either in the sun or in gravitational effects of the moon and the sun. 9.2 Match the source with the kind of energy. Advantages Disadvantages a the movement of the sea 1 hydroelectricity b running water in a river 2 wind power c energy from the sun 3 wave power d energy from the wind 4 solar energy 9. 3 Listen to two friends talking about energy and number the pictures (1-4) in the order they mention them. Listen again. What are the advantages and disadvantages of each type of energy? 9.4 Watch the video Alternative energy and answer the questions. 1. What kinds of energy do turbines/panels/dams use? 2. Where is tidal /geothermal/biomass energy in demand? 3. What variety of biomass is mentioned? 4.What kinds of renewable energy are best for Russia? 9.5 Solar energy Solar photovoltaic (PV) systems are designed to generate DC from sunlight. Then it s converted by inventor to AC and can be immediately used by a consumer or stored in rechargeable batteries (like the ones in cars) or fed into the power grid and sold to the electric company. Therefore, solar PV systems can be stand-alone or gridconnected. a) Watch the video How the solar energy is used for generating electricity. Explain the chain: DC AC the user the grid. Does it work well? 9.6 Wind energy Try this quiz. 31
