    This paper discusses smart sensors which are a critical element to monitoring, control, and evaluation processes as needed to support ground based testing for rocket engine test. Sensor applications involve tens to thousands of sensors; their reliable performance is critical to achieve overall system goals. These system engineering trade-offs include the familiar constraints of power, signal condi... View full abstract»

    This series presents some procedural guidance for inventors and entrepreneurs who would otherwise either not pursue protection for their inventions or would file a patent application pro se without the input of a qualified patent practitioner. Having a professional patent practitioner draft and file a patent application can be beyond the budget of many inventors. The topics discussed in the series... View full abstract»

    In electric power systems, there may be disturbances in the supply voltage and the load current drawn by a user. These disturbances happen when the frequency and amplitude are not equal to their corresponding nominal values, when there are non-sinusoidal waveforms, and when there is the presence of negative and zero-sequence components in three-phase systems. Power quality (PQ) is a generic expres... View full abstract»

    In this paper, the author discussed the generalization of non-active, reactive and apparent power concepts to nonstandard situations. Although the most general case has not been dealt with for lack of space, the main message should be clear: the generalization of the classical concepts is not straightforward. Measuring these quantities in non-standard (distorted, unbalanced and polyphase) situatio... View full abstract»

    Engineers have many wireless sensor network (WSN) algorithms to choose from when designing a wireless measurement system. However, it seems that each system with its specific requirements needs a corresponding algorithm, and existing algorithms cannot be effectively changed to fit the differences. In this column, we do not create a "one for all" solution, which is probably unattainable, but we pre... View full abstract»
