Governor control optimization of hydro power plants using hybrid fuzzy logic and PID control.
Control of hydro power plants has been an issue of concern for researchers; moreover, more emphasis has always been put on governor control which naturally has slower response, but vital in ensuring system stability and ...
Design and modeling of a power conditioning system for the hybrid fuel-cell/turbine power plant.
This thesis presents the model of a power conditioning system (PCS) for the hybrid direct fuel-cell with turbine (DFC/T) power plant. It regulates voltage, current and power transmitted from the hybrid DFC/T power plant ...
Quantitative evaluation of the HTC Vive virtual reality system in controlled movement.
Modern virtual reality systems enable users to be immersed in a virtual world. Validation of the HTC Vive will assure users and developers that games and applications made for the system are accurate representations of the ...
Development and implementation of a Multi-Agent Control System for the Rankine Cycler Laboratory Teaching System.
One challenge faced by the engineering discipline in the near future is increased electric power demand coupled with greater efficiency requirements for power generation stations. Development of more robust control ...
The Subgroups of S4 in Cycle Form
This technical report lists all subgroups of S4, the symmetric group of degree 4. Subgroups are listed in cycle form using the integers 0, 1, 2, and 3.
A low-cost pulsed Fourier transform network analyzer.
Characterizing the frequency response of a material or device over microwave frequencies is a common practice for an RF engineer. New industrial and consumer applications are being developed based on the measurement of the ...
Generator Pairs for all 4x4 GF(2) Representations of S4
There are nine conjugacy classes of faithful representations of S4 in the general linear group of 4x4 matrices. This report gives generator matrices for one group in each class. These generator pairs allow each of the ...
Designing, constructing, and testing a second-generation prototype mechanical hippotherapy horse.
The use of horses as a means of therapy has been documented for some time. To determine why this type of therapy works and to provide a means of expanding its accessibility, a mechanical horse has been developed. Data ...
The design of small propellers operating at low Reynolds numbers and associated experimental evaluation.
Small-scale Unmanned Aerial Systems (UASs) are becoming increasingly important in the field of intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance. As the desire for higher payloads and longer flight times increases, so does ...
Faster k-means clustering.
The popular k-means algorithm is used to discover clusters in vector data automatically. We present three accelerated algorithms that compute exactly the same clusters much faster than the standard method. First, we redesign ...
