    THE MARKET FOR INTEGRATED power systems for more electric aircrafts and, in particular, for unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) is rapidly developing [1]. Due to space constraints, a practical solution for UAVs is to employ electric-starter generators (ESGs) embedded in gas turbine engines to facilitate electric engine crank, assist the engine in reaching the desired idle speed, generate power to drive t...

    When inverters in voltage control mode are paired with synchronous generators (SGs), they exhibit poor transient load sharing in islanded operation. It is well known that power electronics respond more quickly where the inverter initially picks up the majority of every load step, and the generator's output slowly increases until they reach their steady-state load sharing given by droop settings. T... View full abstract»

    Endless strip generation is the key to productivity and quality in several types of steel coil production lines. Coil-tocoil joining by means of welding machines provides such a strip. Since the joint is the weakest area of the strip, its quality must be assessed for the production line to accept it. Therefore, it is necessary to inspect the quality of the weld in the welding-cycle time. Based on ... View full abstract»

    Electric demand-side management (DSM) focuses on changing the electricity consumption patterns of end-use customers through improving energy efficiency and optimizing the allocation of power. Demand response (DR ) is a DSM solution that targets residential, commercial, and industrial customers and is developed for demand reduction or demand shifting at a specific time for a specific duration. In t... View full abstract»

    Paper machine dryer sect ions create challenges in tuning due to gear backlash. This problem is amplified when older paper machines are upgraded with newer, higher-performance drive systems. The newer drive systems can achieve a much higher degree of control, which can fatigue the mechanical drivetrain. Most often, backlash is experienced during the speed regulator tune-up [1]. The speed regulator... View full abstract»
