    The report which was prepared by the NSERC Communications, Computer and Components Engineering and Electromagnetics and Electrical Systems Engineering Grant Selection Committees, highlights the major contribution which the electrical engineering discipline makes to research and development activities in Canada. The character of research in the discipline is fundamentally changing due to the rapid ... View full abstract»

    Morphological transformations are an efficient method for shape analysis and representation. The pecstrum (pattern spectrum), which is a morphological shape descriptor, is used for object representation. Neural networks are then employed, instead of conventional classification techniques, for object recognition and classification. Various coding schemes and training procedures have been examined i...

  • Modlling of optical tapers for high-angular-tolerance optical receivers application

    Publication Year: 1992, Page(s):65 - 70

    The performance of optical tapers used in an optical receiver for atmospheric communication applications is analyzed numerically. A generalized mathematical ray-tracing model and a computation algorithm are presented for numerical evaluations. With this model, the taper can have an arbitrary shape and both the meridional rays and skew rays can be simulated. Furthermore, a simple figure of merit is... View full abstract»

    A sensitivity concept is used to analyze the regulator's effect on power system damping. Various types of regulators, including automatic voltage regulators, power system stabilizers and speed governors, are investigated in a one-machine infinite bus system and a 13-machine power system. The results are compared with those obtained by the torque concept. View full abstract»

    An efficient heuristic algorithm for solving cluster problems associated with partitioning of power networks is presented. The algorithm is divided into two stages. The first stage creates an initial partition based on the electrical distance between system buses. The second stage involves interchanging pairs of buses among the various clusters of the initial partition. The first stage solves the ... View full abstract»

    The authors present, in a tutorial way, the basic ideas involved in Narendra Karmarkar's projective scaling algorithm for solving linear programming problems and to show two of its most important extensions, the dual and the dual affine algorithms. Implementation issues regarding the practical solution of the search direction are also discussed. A new parallel preconditioned conjugate gradient sol... View full abstract»
