    Worldwide interoperability for microwave access (WiMax) tends to be one of the most controversial technologies in telecommunications history. WiMax can be seen either as a prominent technology in the mobile Internet access revolution or as an unjustifiably hyped technology that remained just an expectation and never lived up to its potential. Advocates of the former statement include the major, le... View full abstract»

    The radio spectrum is a precious resource that underpins various wireless services. It is traditionally regulated by a fixed frequency assignment policy, which allocates frequency bands to license holders for exclusive use. Dynamic spectrum access has been proposed as a promising approach to improve spectrum utilization by allowing new wireless systems to dynamically access or share the licensed b...

    The system selected by Caltrain for the commuter rail line electrification is an autotransformer- fed system. The system comprises three major parts: - traction power supply system including traction power substations located along the route at predetermined spacing - traction power distribution system consisting of overhead catenary system, feeder system, paralleling stations, and a switching sta...

    Automotive theft and hijacking are traditionally the major automobile security concerns. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Uniform Crime Reports (UCR) state that the number of automobiles stolen each year fluctuated around 1,200,000 from 1997 to 2006 (Figure 1), without having a steady trend. Common ways of stealing cars include carjacking, breaking windows or jimmying locks to gain entry,... View full abstract»

    Hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) are increasingly gaining popularity due to their lower fuel consumption. Current hybrid vehicles mostly use their battery or the energy storage system (ESS) as a secondary source of power. If the ESS were to be used as a primary source of power, then the ESS size would be one of the important features in the design of an HEV. In addition, HEVs have to employ an inte...

    To optimize the operation of internal combustion engine (ICE), maximize fuel economy, and minimize emissions, many novel traction schemes have been developed. Among those, an electromechanical converter known as electric variable transmission (EVT) was presented in, which enables a continuously variable transmission (CVT), starter, and generator. It is especially suitable for hybrid electric vehic... View full abstract»

    A hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) is a combination of two power sources: one unidirectional power source based on an internal combustion engine (ICE) (gasoline or diesel fueled), and the other bidirectional based on batteries or electric energy storage subsystem, plus electric machines (EMs). No matter how these two power sources are combined, a hybrid vehicle has the same basic energy flow. From th... View full abstract»
