n. the relation that exists when things occur at the same time; "the drug produces an increased synchrony of the brain waves" [syn: synchronism, synchrony, synchronicity, synchroneity, synchronisation, synchronizing] [ant: asynchronism, asynchronism, asynchronism]
Synchronization is the coordination of events to operate a system in unison. The familiar conductor of an orchestra serves to keep the orchestra in time. Systems operating with all their parts in synchrony are said to be synchronous or in sync; those which are not are asynchronous.
Today, synchronization can occur on a global basis through the GPS-enabled timekeeping systems (and similar independent systems operated by the EU and Russia).
In computer science, synchronization refers to one of two distinct but related concepts: synchronization of processes, and synchronization of data. Process synchronization refers to the idea that multiple processes are to join up or handshake at a certain point, in order to reach an agreement or commit to a certain sequence of action. Data synchronization refers to the idea of keeping multiple copies of a dataset in coherence with one another, or to maintain data integrity. Process synchronization primitives are commonly used to implement data synchronization.
In an alternating current electric power system, synchronization is the process of matching the speed and frequency of a generator or other source to a running network. An AC generator cannot deliver power to an electrical grid unless it is running at the same frequency as the network. If two segments of a grid are disconnected, they cannot exchange AC power again until they are brought back into exact synchronization.
A direct current (DC) generator can be connected to a power network by adjusting its open-circuit terminal voltage to match the network voltage, by either adjusting its speed or its field excitation. The exact engine speed is not critical. However, an AC generator must match both the amplitude and the timing of the network voltage, which requires both speed and excitation to be systematically controlled for synchronization. This extra complexity was one of the arguments against AC operation during the War of Currents in the 1880s. In modern grids, synchronization of generators is carried out by automatic systems.
Usage examples of "synchronization".
The clear, plastic fogged a few times in synchronization with her exhalations and then cleared as the defog circuits cut in.
She took it and they went into a slow lateral spin due to their different velocities, but a few kicks and nudges against the passageway walls brought them into synchronization, and they flew on side by side.
And that immediately suggested a possible synchronization mechanism: In a congregation of flashing fireflies, every one is continually sending and receiving signals, shifting the rhythms of others and being shifted by them in turn.
Bronheim, whoever it is that Susanna has picked up may attempt temporal synchronization .
I should think the synchronization of the two crises, inner and outer, puts it beyond all doubt.
Now, after hours of energy exchange, controlled power surges, and meticulous synchronizations, they were able to move at rates detectible to human measure, at rates that allowed them to depart the cave as absolutely, if (from an anthropomorphic perspective) not quite as efficiently, as Boomer Petway and Ellen Cherry Charles.
My own theory was that because the Laws of Time require a biological synchronization between objective time on Query and objective time experienced by the body, the law of elapsed time follows.
Under the differing rhythms of their footsteps it bucked out of synchronization and was as like as not to suddenly smack up jarringly at their boots as they put them down, or to drop away under their steps so that they stumbled.
The connections and control links to all the operations in the system are so complex, so keyed to synchronizations with the Moon’s orbit, that I wouldn’t even want to adjust the Moon’s orbit, because of all the other things you’d have to adjust as a result.
For the probe to lock on, a precise synchronization had to be achieved with certain wave functions generated at the return-gate end-analogous to a radio receiver's having to be tuned to the same frequency as the transmitter to pick up a station.
