Transient (computer Programming) - Operating Systems
... Unsourced material may be challenged and removed Transient also refers to a module that, once loaded into main memory, is expected to remain in memory for a short time ... In order to conserve memory, transients were small modules that supported a specific task, and were swapped in and out of memory ... The operating system for the 360 had two areas reserved for transients that supported input/output operations ...
Voltage Optimisation - Common Power Quality Problems - Transients
... Transients are large, very brief and potentially destructive increases in voltage ... Although they typically only last thousandths or millionths of a second, transients can damage electronic systems causing data loss, degrading equipment components and shortening equipment life ... Some voltage optimisation devices include transient protection ...
Pressurized Water Reactors - PWR Reactor Design - Pressurizer
