    Discusses the solution of problems and teaching undergraduates. The solution, like the problems, could range from the simple to the complex. The most important thing as to remember to look at the problem from different perspectives to make sure the solution offered represented the best technical answer for the most cost-effective investment. The most elegant solution may not be the best; advice is... View full abstract»

    IC systems are different from conventional search engines or database systems. IC systems are supposed to be the answer to information overload. They allow users to narrow what they are looking for and get information matching their needs. IC systems are also a bargain of consummate efficiency. The value proposition of such systems is reducing the time spent looking for information View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (3)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (929 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This article presents a theoretical simulation and analysis of all possible factors due to transient overvoltages (TOVs) that could contribute to electrical failures of electric submersible pump (ESP) motors used in oil fields. A transient calculations software package PSCAD is used to simulate a single cable-fed, 3.3-kV induction motor including the mains of the 33-kV distribution system. The fac... View full abstract»

    The existence of open standards for video encoding and protocols for streaming media transmission over IP networks has led to the proposal of such a system. The work presents an open urban traffic control system based in common/commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) philosophy for hardware and software as well as open source and standardized protocols. The proposed system is a suitable solution in terms ... View full abstract»

    This article describes that single-version enhanced processing logic or algorithms can be very effective in gaining dependable computing through hardware transient fault tolerance (FT) in an application system. Transients often cause soft errors in a processing system resulting in mission failure. Errors in program flow, instruction codes, and application data are often caused by electrical fast t...

    This paper describes integrated circuits (IC), which is denser, faster and cheaper. In the increasing system integration, as well as aggressive technology scaling, IC thermal issues now stand in the way of improved IC performance and by increasing transistors counts and aggressive frequency scaling result in as significant increase in chip-power density, and also its temperature. In order to avoid... View full abstract»

    As we know from news accounts and Google searches, the intentional or accidental theft of words has occurred in many subjects, in many fields, including academia. Authors of literary works and music have fallen victim to plagiarism just as easily as authors of research and technical scholar ship. While the practice of plagiarism has always been discouraged, efforts to combat it have become more pr... View full abstract»
