    The results of a study on the effects of 1 MeV electrons and 1 MeV neutrons on the operation of high speed GaAs Charge Coupled Devices (CCDs) are presented. Radiation-induced trapping levels are characterized using a linear array CCD structure and the periodic pulse technique. 1 MeV electron irradiation introduced traps at 0.1 eV and 0.39 eV with bulk trap introduction rates of 1 cm-1 and 0.33 cm-...

    The present paper describes an attempt to apply an approximate noninteractive control to the load-following operation of the nuclear steam supply (NSS) system of a pressurized water reactor power plant. A control strategy is proposed for maximizing the unique merit of the noninteractive control in advancing the operational performance of the NSS system. An noninteractive load follow-up control sys... View full abstract»

    Microprocessor system failures due to memory corruption by single event upsets (SEUs) and/or latch-up in RAM or ROM memory are common in environments where there is high radiation flux. Traditional methods to harden microcomputer systems against SEUs and memory latch-up have usually involved expensive large scale hardware redundancy. Such systems offer higher reliability, but they tend to be more ... View full abstract»

    A method to obtain Kalman gain independent of process noise and initial state estimate error covariances during system operation is developed through the adaptive control concept in case that output measurement matrix is non-singular square matrix. A failure detection scheme of the conventional GLR method is modified to overcome much time consumption in the failure identification. Therefore it is ... View full abstract»

    An electronic system for acoustic imaging of vapor bubbles in a liquid filled steel pipe is described. An array of 20 acoustic transducers is attached around the pipe. They are fired one at a time by a programmable sequencer. The same transducers are in turn used as receivers of echoes reflected back from the bubbles. Analog and digital circuits and logic is described for fast processing of receiv... View full abstract»
