# Topic: Power forward

 TheDraftReview - POWER FORWARD Power forwards play a role similar to that of center in what is called the "post" or "low blocks". Power forwards can be imposing presences on defense, but they usually defer to the center in terms of blocking shots and general intimidation. In the NBA, a typical power forward is between 6'8" and 7'0" (2.03 to 2.13 m) in height and 230 to 260 pounds (105 to 120 kg) in weight, and is often asked to play center in specific game situations or when a particular team lacks a taller player. www.thedraftreview.com /index.php?option=com_content&task=category§ionid=9&id=99&Itemid=112   (232 words)

 Power flow on transmission lines The ratio of return power to forward power is therefore the (modulus of gamma) squared. Calculate the peak voltages in the forward and backward wave, and by adding and subtracting these determine the Voltage Standing Wave Ratio (VSWR) which is the ratio of peak ac voltage on the line to minimum ac voltage on the line as we move along the line. The peak voltage in the forward wave is sqrt(2) times 25 or 35.36 volts; the peak voltage in the backward wave is sqrt(2) times 11.72 or 16.57 volts. personal.ee.surrey.ac.uk /Personal/D.Jefferies/powerflow.html   (1176 words)

 active clamp resets The forward converter is derived from the buck topology family, employing a single modulating power switch. The power switch for the forward topology is ground referenced, whereas in the buck topology, the switch source floats on the switching node. The range of gate drive voltage for the forward sync rectifiers, Q5 and Q6, is 6 V to 12.5 V. The range of gate drive voltage for the freewheeling sync rectifiers, Q3 and Q4, is 4.5 V to 7.3 V.

 SUNS: 2005-06 Position by Position: Power Forward Power forwards were centers, small forwards were power forwards, up was down, down was up and what made it even more bizarre was that it worked. The initial plan for 2005-06 was to return, at least in part, to a return to small forward for Shawn Marion and a return to power forward for Amaré Stoudemire. Fans across the basketball world were looking forward to seeing the continued development of one of the most dominating and entertaining big men to come along in quite some time. www.nba.com /suns/news/0506positions_powerforward.html   (1211 words)

 STORM: 2005 Power Forward Prospects There was no elite power forward prospect in last year's draft, but that didn't stop power forwards from making an impact. Lauren Jackson at power forward, the Storm needs not worry about the position as far as the starting lineup is concerned. At 6-2, Batteast might not be able to stay at power forward in the WNBA, and she'll have to improve her perimeter shooting to play on the wing. www.wnba.com /storm/news/05draftpf.html   (915 words)

 Power Management DesignLine | Rival efforts tackle low-power standards Willis asserted that Power Forward also intends to be "quick, open and inclusive." While competitors such as Synopsys and Mentor Graphics have not responded to the invitation to join, she said, Power Forward is "actively engaged" with numerous other companies and is getting positive feedback on its technical direction. Willis insisted Power Forward is in fact open to other EDA vendors, and she said Cadence does not hold veto power. Despite the addition of the Power Forward advisory group, "there is no acceleration for when an EDA vendor can see the spec, and there is no change in the ability to influence that first spec," said Rich Goldman, vice president for strategic market development at Synopsys. www.powermanagementdesignline.com /191801451?cid=RSSfeed_powermanagementdesignline_pmdlRSS   (1498 words)

 Welcome to HoopTactics.com Since Power's initial attack is down the middle, it attacks both sides of the defense simultaneously making defensive help nearly impossible. In fact, many teams will automatically flow into the "Power" action whenever their initial set offense breaks down, and will even call their power action "Motion." Continuous motion is created when the point guard passes to either wing and screens away. Since the Power Offense involves continuous screening action on both sides of the court, if any of the defenders get hung up on a single screen it will most certainly result in a wide open shot for the opponent's best shooters. www.cybersportsusa.com /hooptactics/power.asp   (405 words)

 eteamz.com - The Team Sports Web Site Leader The power forward must excel on the defensive end of the court. Often times the power forward is called upon to guard the other team’s center—given that his own center finds himself in foul trouble. Power forwards also must provide that intangible spark for their team: his physical and mental toughness should fire up his teammates. eteamz.active.com /basketball/instruction/tips/tip.cfm/700   (268 words)

 Forward Stroking For Greater Efficiency- Speedskating Santa Barbara The passive forward stroke has as its goal the regaining of the 50% of the stroke energy which was directed sideways. The advantage of the active forward stroke is that you can skate up to small angles, not too far from straight ahead, and still react against the ground for power generation but not develop a lot of sideways energy to cut your efficiency. Because of this limitation the amount of forward push is not too great and is best used briefly -- for example as the termination of a standard sideways push to develop additional forward thrust (see drawings here). home1.gte.net /pjbemail/ForwardStroke.html   (1289 words)

 Power forward (hockey)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-17) A power forward in the sport of hockey is usually a winger, though at times a center can also be given that tag. Power forwards tend to be large and muscular (6'0 - 6'3, 210-230 pounds) with the mobility to track a puck to the corners and the puckhandling skills to get it back to anyone in front of the net. Thus, a true power forward is rare and is usually blessed with a very high skill level, and are fan favorites for those that like the rougher side of hockey. www.serebella.com /encyclopedia/article-Power_forward_(hockey).html   (977 words)

 Feed-forward microwave power amplifier with difference signal distortion cancellation circuit - Patent 4629996 A microwave power amplifier according to claim 1, wherein said adjusting means comprises a directional coupler and an attenuator for providing said signal having said level S.sub.1 from an output of said first amplifier means, and an auxiliary amplifier means for providing said signal having said level S.sub.2 from an output of said divider means. When a number of signals are transmitted by a single power amplifier, an undesirable intermodulaton occurs due to the non-linear characteristics of the power amplifier which operates close to the saturation output power level, and so, the ratio of the desired signal power to the undersired power is decreased. The prior feed forward system has still a further disadvantage that a trouble of a main amplifier makes the system transmitting power one fourth, and if the auxiliary amplifier output power is the same as that of the main amplifier, the system operation becomes too difficult to maintain the communication link. www.freepatentsonline.com /4629996.html   (3152 words)

 Configuring Forward Channel Power Levels and Walsh Codes In addition to the walsh codes and power levels that can be set or queried for the forward code channels, some channels also have other settings, such as F-FCH/Traffic channel data rate, etc. Forward Code Channels for IS-2000 and IS-95 Systems provides you the reference to the configuration information relating to the specific code channels. The relative power of the channels that are being generated at any given time must sum to 100% of the cell power. Because the relative power levels of the different channels must add up to a 100% of the cell power, the test set performs an error checking of the code channel levels, called code level summation check. wireless.agilent.com /rfcomms/refdocs/cdma2k/cdma2000_gen_bse_code_chan_pwr_lvl.php   (1416 words)

 Film-Forward Review: [POWER TRIP] In the country of Georgia (population 5.5 million), power outages are a way of life. At the onset, only 10 percent of customers actually pay their bills, and an estimated 40 percent of the capital, Tbilisi, is illegally wired (footage includes a tour of a horrifically dangerous and fragile electrical system in a slum of an apartment complex). Power Trip not only sheds light (pun intended) on a nation trying to adjust to a new reality, but is also an eye opening look on this exotic nation. www.film-forward.com /power.html   (318 words)

 UA considering lineup change | www.azstarnet.com ® For one, power forward Ivan Radenovic has missed time this week with a hip pointer suffered in Tuesday's game with Wyoming, and Olson typically does not start players who have missed significant practice time because of injury or suspension. For another, Mississippi State often plays a smaller, athletic lineup with power forward Lawrence Roberts at center, meaning a UA lineup with Adams at power forward may be the better matchup. Although Adams was effective at power forward last season despite being only 6 feet 4 inches, UA coaches wanted to move him to small forward this season with Fox or Radenovic at power forward. www.azstarnet.com /sn/wildcats/51052.php   (668 words)
