    Network synchronization deals with the problem of distributing time and frequency among spatially remote locations. Network synchronization is an integral part of any large communication system, such as the telephone network. It also plays an important role in many diverse applications like navigation and position determination, computer communication, data gathering, control and command systems, ... View full abstract»

  • The concept of demand-side management for electric utilities

    Demand-side management (DSM) is the planning and implementation of those electric utility activities designed to influence customer uses of electricity in ways that will produce desired changes in the utility's load shape. While the objective of any DSM activity is to produce a load-shape change, the art of successful implementation and the ultimate success of the program rests within the balancin...

    This paper provides an overview of demand-side management (DSM) alternatives. It covers the general state of the art, projected developments, and the application of DSM alternatives. It starts with a background discussion of DSM which provides the reader with a historical reference and an understanding of the types of needs DSM alternatives can address and the benefits they can provide.

    This paper presents a summary of important issues associated with predicting demand-side management (DSM) program impacts. The issues are identified by describing the general mechanisms by which DSM programs effect energy and/or demand impacts. The determinants of program impacts are then reviewed to illustrate what factors should be included in impact forecasting methods. Finally, several types o... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a conceptual framework for implementation of utility demand-side management (DSM) programs. The key steps in the process are: establishment of DSM goals, identification of appropriate end uses, assessment of technical options, and development of implementation strategies. Major issues related to customer acceptance and customer response are reviewed. Six generic categories of D... View full abstract»

    The structure of electric rates is increasingly being used as a demand-side tool by U.S. electric utilities. Over the past decade, more than half of the larger utilities have implemented either rates which vary by time-of-day, or where discounts are given to customers who reduce loads upon request. Many other new rate forms are being employed as well, primarily to reflect the changing structure of... View full abstract»

  • A new approach to array geometry for improved spatial spectrum estimation

    In this letter, we address the problem of element placement in a linear aperiodic array for use in spatial spectrum estimation. By making use of a theorem by Caratheodory, it is shown that, for a given number of elements, there exists a distribution of element positions which, for uncorrelated sources, results in superior spatial spectrum estimators than are otherwise achievable. The improvement i... View full abstract»

    A simple procedure for the enumeration of Hamiltonian circuits of a directed graph is presented. The new method is based on an efficient technique of subset generation. The method can be easily implemented on a computer. View full abstract»

  • Active filter design using cascaded identical low-order (≥ 2) filter sections

    Publication Year: 1985, Page(s):1525 - 1526

    The realization of sharp cutoff filter specifications requires approximation functions with large pole-Qs, while implemented in cascade-form structures. This letter suggests a design approach using identical low-order structures requiring much lower pole-Qs for the constituent second-order blocks. View full abstract»

    A parallel form adaptive pole-zero filter implemented in the frequency domain is presented. This filter can exactly model any proper rational system with distinct poles and it permits direct monitoring of pole trajectories during adaptation so that instability of the filter is easily prevented.

  • Maximum-likelihood estimation of parameters of exponentially damped sinusoids

    Maximum-likelihood estimates of the parameters of exponentially damped sinusoidal signals in noise can be found by using an iterative procedure based on Newton's method. The initial estimate is obtained by an improved linear-prediction method. The properties of the Newton estimates obtained from short data records is experimentally studied. View full abstract»

  • Any two N × N costas signals must have at least one common ambiguity sidelobe if N > 3—A proof

    Costas signals have an ambiguity function that approaches the ideal "Thumbtack" configuration. To increase the main lobe/side-lobe ratio without increasing the number of frequencies (signal dimension, N) it may be possible to stagger Costas signal pulses whose ambiguity sidelobe patterns do not coincide. We prove here that Costas signals of the same dimension, with completely different ambiguity s... View full abstract»
