    The concern in mission-critical and safety-critical systems is that you develop them thoughtfully and carefully. They need traceable evidence for every detail. Like a good journalist, you and your team must establish the "who, what, when, where, why, and how" in everything you do. Development of mission- and safety-critical systems requires a temporal progression, regardless of the development mod... View full abstract»

    A large class of sensors has nonlinear input-output characteristics; the task of addressing their dynamic behavior is very interesting. These sensors include magnetic field sensors (fluxgate sensors), SQUID devices, ferroelectric sensors, and mechanical sensors made of piezoelectric materials. Over the past few years there has been increasing interest in the sensing properties of ferroelectric dev... View full abstract»

  • The certainty of uncertainty in real-time systems

    Identifying and managing uncertainty is an essential part of the engineering of complex systems. But when dealing with real-time systems, special forms of uncertainty provide even greater challenges. Why should this be? The short answer is that real-time systems must add the assurance of temporal correctness to the already difficult task of sensor interface and device control. But the problem is r...

    This work has attempted to give a brief overview of the power and benefits of intelligent integrated management systems. ICSs monitor and cover the whole factory from shop floor to boardroom, giving all plant personnel appropriate information and control. The power of the ICS is the ability to recognize and consolidate a whole variety of various process, operational, and management and governmenta... View full abstract»

    The test stands at SSC are enormous structures, each with several hundred - even thousands - of sensors. With such a high sensor count and variety it is incredibly difficult to do anything useful with the influx of data in real time beyond recording it for future examination. However, it would be ideal if the test controller could not only view all of the data in an intuitive and information rich ... View full abstract»

  • Measuring energy - rules of thumb

    In engineering, accurate measurement is a way of life - that is if you want to remain employed. But there are many times when estimations based on rules of thumb are extremely efficient and can be quite accurate. Most adults have had experience with common blue-tip kitchen matches somewhere in their childhood. Some of these experiences got us into trouble, but that's another story. So we as engine...

    Accurate documentation of instrument calibration saves time and money in the completion of construction projects. There are thousands of newly arrived instruments that must be checked and calibrated and then documented prior to installation in new plants. Such an extended effort was not necessary at the recently completed Front Range Power Station, a 480-MVV combined cycle power plant constructed ... View full abstract»

    Three-phase induction motors are the workhorses of industry because of their widespread use. They are used extensively for heating, cooling, refrigeration, pumping, conveyors, and similar applications. They offer users simple, rugged construction, easy maintenance, and cost-effective pricing. These factors have promoted standardization and development of a manufacturing infrastructure that has led... View full abstract»
