    Increased system complexity, reduced personnel, and tighter operating margins have made a AC or DC drive-system trending HMI not just a possibility, but a necessity in today's paper mill. Each new paper machine, coater, supercalender, or winder drive system should be installed with a modern user-friendly HMI. Existing analog and digital drive systems can be retrofitted with an HMI. This HMI should be used by operations and maintenance personnel to troubleshoot drive system, mechanical, and process issues. The majority of the issues that will be resolved with the HMI are process or mechanical related issues. The HMI should have trending capability, an overview screen, an event-history page, a sheet-break status screen, an alarm/fault-history page, and a permissive-screen page. The historical information that the HMI offers is what makes the tool invaluable. View full abstract»

    This article describes a series of methods to detect thickness defects in DWI tinplate. These methods provide information to identify the origin of the defects, allowing fast corrections and, therefore, improving mill performance. In this approach, an adapted thickness signal is spatially sampled from the input stages of the mill's last X-ray gauge. The system is also able to detect other problems related to thickness quality such as third-octave chatter using only the thickness measures from an X-ray gauge. The usage of this system resulted in an improvement in the factory performance and considerable money savings. View full abstract»

    This article investigates alternative three-phase ASD topologies for integrated motor drives by discussing the hardware requirements and comparing their performance, size of magnetics, and efficiency, which in this case is important in order to determine their cooling requirements. It presents possible converter topologies for the next generation of integrated motor drives, which are arranged in three groups. The grid side performance is analyzed by simulations and their losses estimated. Three recommendations are made, while, for a general application ASD with sinusoidal input current, the choice is given by the price of four diodes against a RB-IGBT. View full abstract»

    Increasing production and quality demands in the cement industry have resulted in the need for improvement in the speed and accuracy of quality-control results. This need has been addressed many technological advances in quality-control automation in recent years. Two distinct methods of sampling and analysis, in-situ and extractive, have gradually developed. In-situ analysis occurs in the field at the process equipment, with the results transmitted through a computer control system. This article discusses the characteristics and differences in analyzer and control technologies that utilize the two different methods of obtaining a result. View full abstract»

    This paper discusses, many inventions referred to lamp development patent by Sawyer and Man conjointly and some by Sawyer separately. In July 1878, Sawyer, Man, and five other individuals formed the Electro-Dynamic Light Company. Westinghouse brought under its control practically all of the important incandescent electric lamp patents except those of the Edison company. Edison had secured a patent about lamp bulb. Upon the expiration of the Edison patent, the Westinghouse company resumed manufacture of the all-glass globe type of lamp. When the lamp business outgrew the capacity of the West 23rd Street factory, it was transferred to a new factory in Bloomfield, New Jersey. View full abstract»

  • Synchronous versus induction motors: plant efficiency benefits resulting from the use of synchronous motors

    Induction motors are often the choice for various industrial production processes. Use of an induction motor, however, will result in increased lagging power-factor burdens in the plant. This burden often must be corrected by adding capacitors. If not, the result is the penalty of larger kilovoltampere burdens to the interconnected system. The synchronous machine, with the aid of an intelligent excitation controller, can control power factor to reduce the plant reactive loading to the connected system. This article discusses the application of the synchronous motor at the Lion Oil refinery and the digital excitation system used to control the machine power factor. View full abstract»

    This article discusses the development of a concept for utilizing abundant human intelligence resources in a shared network over the Internet. Windtalker is a concept that will help people solving the problem of understanding the local culture and language in order to make the trip of a traveler comfortable. By utilizing current Internet, PDA, and wireless networks, the windtalker system virtually brings the bilingual volunteer to the traveler in need. Windtalker servers will find for the traveler a person online who can help with the interpretation. The concept is not limited to language service and is also viable for more extensive human interactions. Future development of windtalker will be focused on making the system architecture more open and user friendly. View full abstract»
