    Flexural and transverse vibrations from static and dynamic components of tensioning forces in belt driven systems can cause changes in the noise radiation from the universal motors of clothes washers. This study describes a successful effort to analyze the effect of tensioning forces on noise emission of the drive system. The data show that principal parameters of tensile forces can cause parametr... View full abstract»

    Since lighting accounts for a large fraction of electrical usage in the industrial sector, the energy efficiency of lamp systems is of major interest. One promising technology which has the potential for use in specialised energy-efficieny lighting applications is solid-state lamp technology. There are many reasons solid-state lamps may be especially useful for new applications. They exhibit long ... View full abstract»

    Personal computers (PCs) are increasingly being used in industrial applications. Graphical user interface (GUI) software and Windows-based operating systems are proving to be cost-effective, rugged and reliable. This paper describes how these advances have, over the past four years, allowed the successful installation of several human-machine interface (HMI) systems for paper machine winders View full abstract»

    An integrated process facility recently went through an update of its existing load shedding scheme in the context of process changes planned for the coming years. Transient simulations indicated that by changing the load shedding philosophy, the frequency profile during power shortages could be significantly improved. This article discusses the plant's electrical/steam load balance issues and the... View full abstract»

    In late 1995, the data communications networks at the Fletcher Challenge Canada's Crofton pulp and paper mill had reached capacity and were suffering from overload. The large growth in process control information and personal computers over the past few years was straining the abilities of existing coaxial and fiber optic systems to reliably transfer data. In addition, increased network complexity... View full abstract»
