Non-fundamental effective apparent power defined through an instantaneous power approach
This paper proposes a new definition of non-fundamental effective apparent power based on an analysis of instantaneous power flows. This new instantaneous power approach for the calculation of the non-fundamental effective ...
Design of multi-station manufacturing processes by integrating the stream-of-variation model and shop-floor data
Processdesign has been intensively studied to reduce dimensional variability of products produced in multi-stationmanufacturingprocesses (MMPs). Most of the existing studies focus on predicting variation propagation and ...
A new approach to averaging level control
In this paper, a new simple algorithm for averaging level control is presented. The proposed algorithm is based on the use of a static nonlinear controller to improve the input flow filtering by reducing the slope of the ...
Aplicación de la fabricación aditiva en la obtención de moldes para termoconformar gráficos tangibles orientados a personas con discapacidad visual
Los gráficos tangibles obtenidos mediante termoconformado de láminas de plástico son un tipo de producto muy común en los distintos ámbitos relativos a la educación y al acercamiento a la cultura de las personas ...
Sculpture Development as an Informal Activity for Learning Engineering Abilities in K-12 Student
(Ahmad IbrahimTEMPUS Publications, 2017)
The social changes that have taken place in recent decades have determined the evolution of the educational system. Society nowadays demands new learning methods, focused on an appropriate selection and processing of ...
Toughness Enhancement of PHBV/TPU/Cellulose Compounds with Reactive Additives for Compostable Injected Parts in Industrial Applications
Poly(3-hydroxybutyrate-co-3-valerate), PHBV, is a bacterial thermoplastic biopolyester that possesses interesting thermal and mechanical properties. As it is fully biodegradable, it could be an alternative to the use of ...
Similar model reference adaptive control with bounded control effort
(John Wiley & Sons, 2011)
In this article, we propose an indirect similar model reference adaptive control scheme (SMRAC) in which the reference model is no longer constrained to be fixed but may be time varying in order to assure a bounded control ...
Second order inverse response process identification from transient step response.
(© 2010 ISA. Published by Elsevier, 2011-04)
Simple algorithms for identification of inverse response models from step response are difficult to obtain because analytically the solution of a system of coupled nonlinear equations is required. In this article we propose ...
Wind power plant resonances
(North Sea Conference & Journal LTD, 2016-12)
Onshore and offshore wind power plants comprising wind turbines equipped with power converters are increasing in number worldwide. Harmonic emissions in power converters distort currents and voltages, leading ...
Aeronautical ground lighting system study: field measurements and simulations
(Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2016)
Aeronautical ground lighting (AGL) systems are single-phase series circuits where constant current regulators supply transformers and luminaires. These systems provide visual reference to aircraft during airport operations. ...
