  • Integration of HVDC control dynamics into transient energy functions

    A common approximation used in the formulation of transient energy functions (TEFs) for ac/dc power systems involves the omission of dc control dynamics. The differential equations representing the dc system dynamics are used to track the fault-on trajectory, but not to derive the TEF. This approach leads to an error in TEF-based stability prediction. In this paper, a method is presented to derive... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a pilot-symbol-aided channel estimator for orthogonal frequency-division multiplex (OFDM) wireless communication systems. The proposed scheme is highly robust to time variation of wireless channels. In addition, it is equivalent to the conventional two-dimensional (2-D) minimum mean square error (MMSE) channel estimator, but with greatly reduced computational complexity. The re...

    In this paper, the transient stability and voltage regulation of multimachine power systems are simultaneously addressed in a multivariable and nonlinear framework. Power systems are nonlinear, large-scale and made of highly coupled generators having a wide range of operating points. Decentralized nonlinear adaptive controllers which continuously update their parameters to compensate for changes i... View full abstract»

    (Paper written in French) This paper presents a synthesis of the various numerical methods used to study and simulate optical propagation. Then, in the results part, the split-step method is presented, based on the fast Fourier transform applied to a particular type of wave important for high-rate transmission: clear solitons of hyperbolic secant type.

    This paper reports on an optical receiver employing a p-i-n diode and a GaAs HBT monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) distributed preamplifier combination. The design is the first to have a photodiode mounted directly on the MMIC chip. The p-i-n preamplifier displays a measured average equivalent input noise current density of 24 pA/Hz. Good agreement is obtained between the predicted an... View full abstract»
