    Most people are aware that the Space Shuttle is used to launch satellites, and occasionally to retrieve them, but far less prominence is given to the scientific programme. Some of the experiments conducted in Earth orbit are very sensitive to even the residual accelerations which exist on the Shuttle which are caused by vibration in mechanical subsystems and crew movement. This article describes s... View full abstract»

  • Vibration control in elastic manipulators

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):83 - 88
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (392 KB)

    Robots and manipulators suffer from variations in stiffness during their operating cycles. This can result in unacceptable vibrations which can reduce their effectiveness or reduce the work quality. In the past the design choices were concerned with altering the shape and size of the structure. A more versatile method is to use mechatronic rather than purely mechanical solutions. Robots in particu... View full abstract»

  • AI controlled simulation of complex systems

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):79 - 82
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (359 KB)

    A novel methodology to control simulation by methods of AI using knowledge bases and the CASSANDRA 3.0 simulation system where they have been implemented are presented. The possibility of building specialised user-oriented simulators on the universal kernel for a wide range of applications revealing the structure of the real systems modelled is shown. The features of the system are demonstrated on... View full abstract»

  • PROCONSUL: an SDL tool set

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):75 - 78
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (367 KB)

    PROCONSUL is an SDL oriented workbench for protocol specification and simulation. It has a highly modular architecture that is integrated by a user interface. Modules already integrated are: an intelligent language sensitive SDL/PR editor, an SDL/GR graphical editor and a simulator that have all been developed for a PC environment.<> View full abstract»

    Image processing activities at KFKI Research Institute for Measurement and Computing Techniques are summarised. First, KFKI's contribution to the VEGA project is described. Then two HW/SW platforms are mentioned (together with applications in intelligent microscopy, industrial quality control). Finally, the analysis/simulation of promising parallel architectures-to achieve considerable speed-up fo... View full abstract»

    At the end of 1993 the first dispatcher training simulator of the Hungarian electric power industry began operation in the regional dispatcher centre of the North Hungarian Electricity Distribution Company (EMASZ KDSZ). The simulator performs discrete event-driven simulation of the network, the protection arrangements and the telemetry system. Its main purpose is to help the dispatchers to cope wi...

  • Field-oriented control of induction motors using DSP

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):61 - 65
    Cited by:  Papers (3)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (411 KB)

    Because of the complexity of mathematical models of induction motors, the dynamic behaviour of ordinary algorithms is poor. The field-oriented control method has numerous advantages, but requires high computing power. However, implementation of this method has recently become more justifiable as a result of the decreasing price stemming from the development of power electronic devices and micropro...
