    The unit-norm constraint optimization for joint shortening of channel and echo impulse response is presented in this paper. The optimization is performed in the mean-square sense (MSE) and compared to unit-tap constraint joint shortening optimization. The proposed method could serve in performing joint echo cancellation and equalization for data transmission over category cables for the next IEEE ... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we examine the performance of power line communication equipments (ethernet-to-powerline adapters) that come from different vendors and are based on different technologies and standards. The scope is to investigate commercially available power line communications (PLC) equipment in their actual working environment under real conditions. Coexistence issues are studied, as well as the... View full abstract»

  • Measuring the Resilience of the Trans-Oceanic Telecommunication Cable System

    Publication Year: 2009, Page(s):295 - 303

    Resilience is the ability of the system to both absorb shock as well as to recover rapidly from a disruption so that it can return back to its original service delivery levels or close to it. The trans-oceanic telecommunication fiber-optics cable network that serves as the backbone of the internet is a particularly critical infrastructure system that is vulnerable to both natural and man-made disa...

    This paper addresses the need to efficiently fuse data from multiple sources and effectively control and monitor the distribution of the data in a dynamic service-oriented architecture based command and control system of systems. We present an architecture framework consisting of two software architectural patterns and an auto-fusion process to guide the development of distributed and scalable sys... View full abstract»

  • Oscillation Damping With Optimal Pole-Shift Approach in Application to a Hydro Plant Connected as SMIB System

    Publication Year: 2009, Page(s):317 - 330
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2103 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper presents an application of control theory to damp out load angle and speed oscillations through the excitation and governor subsystems in a hydro power plant connected as single machine infinite bus (SMIB) system. The control technique used is based on optimal pole shift (PS) theory, unlike linear quadratic regulation (LQR) method, which requires solving an algebraic Riccati equation. T... View full abstract»

  • New Software Metrics for Evaluation and Comparison of Advanced Power Management Systems

    Publication Year: 2009, Page(s):331 - 335
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (449 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    A set of software metrics for the evaluation of power management systems (PMSs) is presented. Such systems for managing power need to be autonomous, scalable, low in complexity, and comprised of portable algorithms in order to be well applied across the varying implementations that utilize power systems. Although similar metrics exist for software in general, their definitions do not readily lend ... View full abstract»

    The Net-Centric Adapter for Legacy Systems (NCALS) is a software technology that makes legacy system data and services available in near real-time to the military Global Information Grid (GIG). The intent of NCALS is to lower the cost and risk, and to decrease the time required for legacy systems to comply with U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) net-centric technical standards. Many different system... View full abstract»

    Radio frequency identification (RFID) technology adoption in business environments has seen strong growth in recent years. Adopting an appropriate RFID-based information system has become increasingly important for enterprises making complex and highly customized products. However, most firms still use conventional barcode and run-card systems to manage their manufacturing processes. These systems... View full abstract»

    The formation of a system of systems from a collection of interdependent systems does so in response to a collaborative mechanism. The nature of the constituent systems that compose the system of systems is a paradox by which they maintain an autonomous behavior and yet join the collective in collaboration. A social function can describe the system of systems mechanism that considers the value of ... View full abstract»

    In this paper, a decentralized formation control is proposed which enables collision free coordination and navigation of agents. We present a simple method to define the formation of multi-agents and individual identities (IDs) of agents. Two decentralized coordination and navigation techniques are proposed for the formation of rovers. Agents decide their own behaviors onboard depending upon the m... View full abstract»
