    Adult learning, work and citizenship: and reflections from the New Sweden '88 Adult Education Seminars in the USA and Canada, October-November 19881989Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    This document reports the activities and impressions of 30 Swedish adult educators who exchanged ideas, experiences, and research results concerning adult education and learning at more than 20 conferences and seminars organized in the United States and Canada. The foreword briefly summarizes some impressions. (Among them are that adult education is more market-oriented in the United States than in Sweden, which has a more policy-oriented system; that Sweden may have more adults being educated per capita, whereas the United States and Canada may offer a wider variety of programs; and that Sweden may be more concerned with equality as it relates to adult education, whereas personal fulfillment may be a more common value in North America.) Part 1 of the document compares and contrasts the North American and Swedish systems, including such topics as study circles, study finance, outreach activities, workplace learning, public broadcasting, and adult learning, the status of research and development in adult education and the infrastructure of adult learning. Ten references are provided for Part 1. Part 2 contains a set of black and white photographs of the Swedish educators and of people and places they encountered during their visits to North America and Canada. Part 3 provides a smorgasbord of ideas, programs, notes, and references about the trip and the ideas exchanged there

    The value of work experience in higher education: a study of work experience as a substitute for formal academic entrance requirements1980Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish policy that work experience can be used as a substitute for formal academic entrance requirements for higher education is assessed. The social and economic background of introducing work experience in higher education policy is described, and the significance of work experience to enrollment patterns and for the form and content of higher education is addressed. The general characteristics of the Swedish admissions system and the effects on recruitment and admissions are outlined. Additionally, the effects of work experience on the educational process are considered from a theoretical viewpoint. Distinctions are made between three different functions of work experience as a ground for admission: work experience as a substitute for upper secondary school education (alternative route) for adults; additional credit in selection for all students; and formal requirement for admission to some study programs. Work experience also is classified as a basis for academic studies according to its content (relevant professional experience, work experience, in general, and life experience). The admissions schemes in Sweden and Denmark are compared, and those found in a few other countries are briefly noted. Some Swedish findings regarding different ways of valuing work experience as an admission criterion are summarized. It is suggested that institutions that are mainly oriented toward traditional groups do not have the same possibilities of using experience as do institutions with an educational design oriented toward nontraditional students. A bibliography is appended

    AC cables strengthening low frequency AC railway with purely active power loads2018In: 2018 IEEE Power & Energy Society General Meeting (PESGM), IEEE, 2018, , p. 5Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Converter-fed railway power systems traditionally use high voltage AC overhead transmission lines in the railway grid for increased loadability. An increased resistance to overhead high voltage AC transmission lines, may motivate cables as one alternative for the future. The focus of this paper is to compare a non-strengthened system with two cable solutions for comparing loadability, voltages, and reactive powers for different levels of load scaling. The studies confirmed that the obstacle of reactive power produced in lowly utilized cables is, even if less significant for low frequency AC, still present. A simplified load model is used representing trains with VSC-converters and three-phase motors as purely active loads regardless of motoring or regenerating. A previous study has been done on thyristor-based trains. The voltage levels while regenerating are higher than in the thyristor-train case study. Besides that the loadability for motoring and regenerating is higher with modern VSC-trains.

    Modern methods for balancing of single phase loads when feeding a.c. Electrified railways2017In: Eb - Elektrische Bahnen, ISSN 0013-5437, Vol. 115, no 6-7, p. 378-384Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Conventional compensation circuits for phase balancing of single phase AC railways for 50 or 60 Hz have high cost for the associated transformers. A new version of the classical Steinmetz scheme, using three single phase transformers connected as a W with the phase angles -60°, 0° and +60°, can reuse the two standard single phase transformers of a V-connected feeding station with a third identical transformer added. Power factor compensation can easily be included. For neutral sections between different feeding systems, a neutral section converter is proposed

    Evaluating a constant-current load model through comparativetransient stability case studies of a synchronous-synchronous rotary frequencyconverter fed railway2019Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper continues the pursuit of getting a deeperunderstanding regarding the transient stability of lowfrequencyAC railway power systems operated at 162⁄3 Hzsynchronously to the public grid. The focus is set on theimpact of different load models. A simple constant-currentload model is proposed and compared to a previously proposedand studied load model in which the train’s activepower is regulated.The study and comparison is made on exactly the samecases as and grid as with the already proposed and moreadvanced load model. The railway grid is equipped witha low-frequency AC high-voltage transmission line whichis subjected to a fault. The study is limited to railwaysbeing fed by different distributions of RFC (Rotary FrequencyConverter) types. Both AT (auto transformer) andBT (booster transformer) catenaries are considered.The RFC dynamic models are essentially Anderson-Fouad models of two synchronous machines coupled mechanicallyby their rotors being connected to the same shaft.The differences in load behaviour between the proposedconstant-current load model and the previously proposedand studied voltage-dependent active power load model areanalyzed and described in the paper.

    Further studies on the transient stability of synchronous-synchronous rotary frequency converter fed railways with low-frequency AC high-voltage transmission2018In: International Journal of Energy Production and Management, ISSN 2056-3272, E-ISSN 2056-3280, Vol. 3, no 4, p. 266-276Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper continues the pursuit of getting a deeper understanding regarding the transient stability of low-frequency AC railway power systems operated at 16 2/3 Hz that are synchronously connected to the public grid. Here, the focus is set on such grids with a low-frequency AC high-voltage transmission line subject to a fault. The study here is limited to railways being fed by different distributions of Rotary Frequency Converter (RFC) types. Both auto transformer (AT) and booster transformer (BT) catenaries are considered. No mixed model configurations in the converter stations (CSs) are considered in this study. Therefore, only interactions between RFCs in different CSs and between RFCs, the fault, and the load can take place in this study. The RFC dynamic models are essentially two Anderson-Fouad models of synchronous machines coupled mechanically by their rotors being connected to the same mechani- cal shaft. Besides the new cases studied, also a new voltage-dependent active power load model is presented and used in this study.

    AC cables strengthening railway low frequency AC power supplysystems2017In: ASME/IEEE 2017 Joint Rail Conference, ASME Press, 2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In present-day railway power supply systems using an AC frequency lower than the one in the public power system of 50/60 Hz, high voltage overhead transmission lines are used as one measure of strengthening the railway power supply system grids. This option may be economically beneficial, compared to strengthening the grid purely by increasing the density of converter stations or increasing the cross section areas of the overhead catenary wires. High voltage AC transmission lines in the railway power supply system allow larger distances between converter stations than would otherwise be possible for a given amount of train traffic. Moreover, the introduction of AC transmission lines implies reduced line losses and reduced voltage level fluctuations at the catenary for a given amount of train traffic. However, due to the increased public and government resistance for additional overhead high voltage AC transmission lines in general, different alternatives will be needed for the future improvements and strengthening of railway power systems. For a more sustainable transport sector, the share and amount of railway traffic needs to increase, in which case such a strengthening becomes inevitable. Earlier, usage of VSC-HVDC transmission cables has been proposed as one alternative to overhead AC transmission lines. One of the main benefits with VSC-HVDC transmission is that control of power flows in the railway power systems is easier and that less converter capacity may be needed. Technically, VSC-HVDC transmission for railway power systems is a competitive solution as it offers a large variety of control options. However, there might be other more economical alternatives reducing the overall impedance in the railway power system. In public power systems with the frequency of 50/60 Hz, an excess of reactive power production in lowly utilized cables imposes an obstacle in replacing overhead transmission lines with cables. In low frequency AC railway power system, the capacitive properties are less significant allowing longer cables compared to 50/60 Hz power systems. Moreover, in converter-fed railways, some kind of reactive compensation will automatically be applied during low-load. At each converter station, voltage control is already present following the railway operation tradition. Therefore, in this paper, we propose AC cables as a measure of strengthening low-frequency AC railway power systems. The paper compares the electrical performances of two alternative reinforcement cable solutions with the base case of no reinforcement. The options of disconnecting or toggling the cables at low load as well as the automatic reactive compensation by converter voltage control are considered. Losses and voltage levels are compared for the different solutions. Investment costs and other relevant issues are discussed.

    Att återställa ordningen: könsmönster och förändring i arbetsorganisationer1999Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Avhandlingen är en könsteoretisk studie av organisationsförändringar i industrin - med fokus på kvinnor som arbetar med produktionsarbete. Avhandlingen beskriver vad som händer med organisationsstrukturen och med genusordningen i organisationen när företaget försöker införa en platt integrerad arbetsorganisation. Empirin omfattar åtta svenska industriföretag: fem massa- och papper, ett tvätteri, ett charkuteri och ett elektronikföretag. Resultaten visar att återställare och dämpande krafter ute i lokala arbetsorganisationer drar organisationen tillbaka till sitt ursprungliga utseende. Många av återställarna har koppling till "kön" och genusordningen. De lokala organisationernas utgångsläge inför organisationsförändringarna bygger ofta på en struktur som ger olika villkor för kvinnor och för män. Denna könsordning är en förklaring till många återställare och det är dessutom ofta just den som återställs. Genusordningens segregerande och hierakiserande krafter gör att människor lätt återskapar gamla könsmönster i nya organisationer. Detta innebär att de nya organisationsmodellernas strävan efter integrering, tillplattning, kompetensutveckling och flexibilitet riskerar att motarbetas. En stark och omfattande könsmärkning och könsuppdelning i utgångsläget inför organisationsförändringen innebär många återställare och därmed svårare att införa den platta integrerade arbetsorganisationen.

    Det finns positiva tecken på att något ska hända med arbetslivsforskningensvillkor. Mer bekymmersamt är att facket och arbetsgivarna vill återskapaett nationellt centrum för arbetslivsforskning i Stockholm. Vi börinte fortsätta att reproducera bilden av att svensk arbetslivsforskningförsvann när Arbetslivsinstitutet lades ned. Det finns många starkaforskargrupper på universiteten ute i landet. Nu är det viktigt att vi ser tillatt de positiva signalerna blir verklighet på ett klokt sätt så att bredden iarbetslivsforskningen säkras.

    Abstract [en]

    This empirical article presents a gender analysis of long-term impacts of some of the many organizational change projects in Swedish industrial work organizations during the 1990s. Based on the results of return visits to three industrial companies and their change projects (implementation of Lean Production or other modern organizational models) that I studied more than a decade earlier, I discuss how the work organizations eventually had changed and specifically how and whether organizational internal gender patterns had changed. The initial study showed gender-based restoring responses to strategic organizational changes, especially in the gender-segregated and gender-homogeneous work organizations. These responses conserved gender patterns as well as the organizations’ culture in general, resulting in less productive work as well as a problematic work environment. The follow-up study showed that the organizations slowly changed according to the modern organizational models (e.g., Lean Production), but at the same time, in some cases, keeping the same gender segregation and stereotypical gender markings of skills and work tasks or with new variants of unequal gender order. In addition, the follow-up study showed other and more positive results with emerging pattern of gender equality, at least in the form of reduced gender segregation and less stereotypical ideas concerning gender. The material indicates that the studied companies, in some aspects, developed into less gendered production organizations while taking some steps toward a modern organization and this was done without gender equality interventions. Therefore, the material indicated that, at least in part, gender equality could be seen as a prerequisite or perhaps even a side effect of modern organizational concepts. This article contributes to the emerging literature on an organizational theory of undoing gender as well as to the research of conditions and consequences of the modern organizational models.

    Abstract [en]

    Raises questions about the links between gender and organizational changes, and between gender and learning at work. The empirical base is a qualitative study of organizational changes in the pulp and paper industry, electronics industry, food industry, and laundry industry in Sweden during the late 1990s. In the studied companies, restoration responses in the work organizations brought the organization back its original form and function. Shows that gender exerts an influence on the existing work organization and on the organizational change. The learning organization, with its focus on integration and decentralization, challenges gender order, which is a strong system, built on segregation and hierarchy. Concludes that gender segregating and stereotypic gender-coding of workplaces and work tasks were strong restoring mechanisms and obstacles to strategic organizational changes, and to individual and to organizational learning.
