    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (366 KB)

    Systems engineering is at a crossroad now at the beginning of the 21st century. One of the main challenges of any paradigms in systems engineering is being able to handle complex systems under unforeseen uncertainties. A system may be called complex if its dimension (order) is too high and its model (if available) is nonlinear, interconnected, and information on the system is uncertain such that c...

    Publication Year: 2008, Page(s):1 - 2
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (299 KB)

    It has long been recognized that any adaptive controller can be characterized by an admissible controller set and a data-dependent cost function that partially orders these controllers. In this talk we discuss the unfalsified control concept, which involves expressing adaptive control cost functions in terms of certain controller-dependent `fictitious' signals used to evaluate stability and perfor...

  • Computational Structure of Correlative Type Higher Order Neural Units with Applications

    Publication Year: 2008, Page(s):1 - 2
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (577 KB)

    The computational neural-network structures described in the literature are often based on the concept of linear synaptic operations. In biological processes, however, neurons form a set of very complex computing elements and perform much more complex computations than just the linear aggregation. It is well known that the computational efficiency of neural networks depends on its morphology and t... View full abstract»

    This paper describes on how to formulate a self-balancing space vector modulator for the three-level neutral point clamp topology typically used for high power induction motor drives. Dependence of the DC link capacitor voltage deviation on DC-link current and inverter switching states is established for proposed three-level inverter. Pulse pattern rearrangements for space vector PWM (SVPWM) using... View full abstract»

  • Power Quality Performance of an Active Harmonic Filter with a Power Converter Feeding Magnet Load

    Publication Year: 2008, Page(s):1 - 6
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (520 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In particle accelerator environment, most of the power converters feeding magnet-loads have either thryristorized or diode bridge at their input stage. Loads to these power converters are fixed but they are operated through a wide current range. Such converters being non-linear loads to the mains produce considerable distortion in the supply current. Hereby, results in a poor total harmonic distor... View full abstract»

    Pulse width modulation (PWM) switching technique is commonly used in full bridge converters to overcome the bulky filter requirements and efficient voltage control, at the cost of higher switching losses. However, all PWM techniques not only cause circuit complexity but also need high frequency switches such as MOSFETs with high conduction drop causing lower efficiency. This paper presents a novel...

  • Genetic Algorithm and Simulated Annealing based Approaches to Categorical Data Clustering

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (256 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Categorical data clustering has been gaining significant attention from researchers, because most of the real life data sets are categorical in nature. In contrast to numerical domain, no natural ordering can be found among the elements of a categorical domain. Hence no inherent distance measure, like the Euclidean distance, would work to compute the distance between two categorical objects. In th... View full abstract»

    Transmission and storing of high density digital information plays an important role in the present age of communication and information technology. These data are distorted while reading out of the recording medium or arriving at the receiver end due to inter symbol interference in the channel. The adaptive channel equalizer alleviates this distortion and reconstructs the transmitted data faithfu... View full abstract»
