    A simulation study of the performances of MiniMAP networks is presented. The two network models used in the simulation take into account the effect of the maximum number of outstanding requests set for each manufacturing message specification (MMS) application association. Three different situations are considered. In the first, all the messages are generated at the same priority level, whereas in... View full abstract»

    A description is given of methods of noise canceling in instrumentation using strain gages, such as a sensor-sensordummy, a dual sensor, and a single sensor. As an example, two signals were produced by alternating the switching between the sensor and sensordummy output signals. The data processing of the two signals made a reliable signal without any noise on the signal line. In this case, `any no... View full abstract»

    The performance of a fast, nonlinear, clapper-type electromagnetic actuator used in impact printing is controlled by real-time measurement and feedback. The objective is to regulate flight time, which is the time from start to actuation to impact. Toward this end, control is applied digitally via pulse-width modulation of a series of coil-driving pulses, which together propel the armature through ... View full abstract»

    The ability to continuously monitor internal combustion engines for the existence and location of faults can improve engine reliability and reduce operating costs. The diagnostics method is based on recording the engine speed fluctuations at the flywheel and at the front end of the engine over one combustion cycle. From the speed fluctuations, the cylinder-to-cylinder variations of the net engine ... View full abstract»

    A case study of the application of a distributed control scheme to a power system control is presented. In addition, an investigation has been conducted into voltage control. Combined injection of VAr-compensating devices controlled by distributed expert systems has been proposed as a measure to maintain voltage stability in a power system under heavy loading conditions. A simulation study has bee... View full abstract»

    The practical implementation of an explicit multivariable state-space self-tuning controller using a hybrid configured microcomputer system is described. The control structure is based on the minimization of a multistage quadratic performance index using dynamic programming or a single-stage performance index based on a Lyapunov function. Measurement of readily available output measurements from t... View full abstract»

    The applicability of a pyramid architecture, the GAM-2 pyramid computer, for the real-time simulation of dynamic systems is demonstrated. The architecture of the computer and the manner in which data are exchanged between processing elements are discussed. The author focuses on how the differential equations and the various computational units of the integration algorithm can be partitioned among ... View full abstract»

    The implementation of an icon-based manufacturing message specification (MMS) messaging system for system control in a manufacturing automation protocol (MAP environment) is described. The system was designed with a four-layer hierarchy. The top layer acts as a user interface and essentially provides a data manipulation service. The next layer invokes the appropriate firmware calls to manage the c... View full abstract»

    The sliding-mode control concept is applied in the outer loop of a speed drive system utilizing a series-connected wound rotor induction machine (SCWRIM). A design procedure is outlined for the sliding-mode speed controller. The methods of decoupling and torque linearization for the SCWRIM are derived using the field-orientation as well as the torque angle control concepts. Sliding-mode control wi... View full abstract»

    A self-tuning control (STC) scheme is examined in real time by comparing its performance with that of two other control schemes. Experimental results show that the controller is superior to a well-known conventional self-tuning controller and a proportional-plus-integral (PI) self-tuning controller whose parameters are selected on the basis of a pole assignment method. The control scheme can be ex... View full abstract»

    A new control philosophy, utilizing both thyristor-controlled reactive (TCR) sources and dynamic power filters (DPFs) has been proposed by J.H.R. Enslin and J.D. Van Wyk (IEEE Trans. Power Electron., vol.5, no.1, 1990) in the application of fictitious power compensation. This study shows the closed-loop control of a DPF using an adaptive signal processing algorithm based on the cross-correlation b... View full abstract»
