    A new configuration is proposed for indoor optical wireless communication systems. The main features are the use of spot diffusing, multiple lines of sight and fly-eye receivers. Design issues such as the power budget, ambient-light interference and farsighted-eye designs for the receivers are discussed using simple models. An experimental set-up demonstrating the feasibility of the spot-diffusing... View full abstract»

    Short-reach interconnect requirements in digital computers and telephone switches may require throughputs of 10 Gb/s (50 parallel lines at 200 Mb/s each) in the near future. Time-division multiplexing (TDM) baseband transmission methods require high-speed multiplexing and precise clock recovery, and/or multiple fibres for such applications. As an alternative, the authors propose and analyze a quas... View full abstract»

  • Radar cross-section analysis using theoretical and experimental signatures

    Publication Year: 1993, Page(s):171 - 180

    The radar cross section of a target is a complex quantity possessing both an amplitude and a phase. Most of the work done up to the present day restricts itself to discussing the former, the latter being almost completely ignored. Yet it seems reasonable to assume that a study of both the amplitude and phase characteristics would lead to a more complete picture of the target under consideration. T... View full abstract»

    The paper presents an adaptation of the general-purpose SIMNON software for the study of alternating-current drives. With the objective of designing and dimensioning converter-AC machine-regulator systems, a simulation module named SEMAS is constructed in modular form using SIMNON. This software package shows great capabilities in terms of computing power, optimization, robustness of the algorithm... View full abstract»

  • Optimal power flow using a generalized power balance constraint

    Publication Year: 1993, Page(s):191 - 198
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3795 KB)

    The paper presents a new method for optimal power flow calculations, using the generalized power balance constraint, obtained from the power flow equations by elimination of all state variables. The reduced optimization problem in the control variables is subsequently decoupled into two stages: a primary stage in the primary control variables (generator active power injections) and a secondary sta...

  • Transient striction and skin effects on voltage drop across flat conductors

    Closed formulas for computing the time-domain voltage between the contact points of a ground plane produced by conducted currents are presented. The approach takes into account realistic effects such as the transient skin effect and the confinement of current lines at the contacts, known as the transient striction or constriction effect. The contribution of external inductance depends on the geome... View full abstract»
