A scheme for coordinated secondary voltage control for systems with multiple VAr reserves

This paper presents a voltage control scheme for coordinating reactive power reserves, inspired by the concept of multi-agent system. Similar to an agent, the proposed controller takes on assigned tasks itself and contacts neighbors for support when needed. The control structure incorporates not only controllable VAr sources but also switched capacitor banks, resulting in increased […]

70 nm seamless band transmission of 17.3 Tb/s over 40×100km of fiber using complementary Raman/EDFA

We demonstrated 70nm seamless band transmission of 173×128Gb/s QPSK signals over 40×100km of TeraWave™ fiber. The complementary Raman/EDFAs and wide-band single-stage discrete Raman amplifiers were used to achieve this 17.3Tb/s capacity ultra-wide single-band transmission.

Transient thermal analysis of the conical rotor motor using LPTN and Finite Volume Method

For this investigation, the conical rotor motor of total enclosed fan cooling (TEFC) with complexity geometry is taken as a typical example . The air flow between the fins caused by the centrifugal fan embedded at the ending bearing is uncertain, thus the 3D finite volume method (FVM) model is build to estimate the flow […]

PARR: Pin access planning and regular routing for self-aligned double patterning

Pin access has become one of the most difficult challenges for detailed routing in 14nm technology node and beyond, where double patterning lithography has to be used for manufacturing lower metal layers with tight pitches. Self-aligned double patterning (SADP) provides better control on the line edge roughness and overlay but it has very restrictive design […]

Overhearing Protocol Design Exploiting Inter-Cell Interference in Cooperative GreenNetworks

The conventional two-way relaying (TWR) protocol requires that the transmitter (receiver) in one direction must be the receiver (transmitter) in the other direction, an limitation precluding the application of the TWR for sophisticated realworld wireless networks. In this paper, we study a more general multi-cell system consisting of a downlink (DL) traffic in one cell and […]

Capacity Estimation for Vehicle-to-Grid Frequency Regulation Services With Smart Charging Mechanism

Due to various green initiatives, renewable energy will be massively incorporated into the future smart grid. However, the intermittency of the renewables may result in power imbalance, thus adversely affecting the stability of a power system. Frequency regulation may be used to maintain the power balance at all times. As electric vehicles (EVs) become popular, […]

Spectral Efficiency and Throughput Enhancement by Full-Duplex D2D Communication in Mobile Clouds

In this paper we consider downlink resource sharing for full-duplex (FD) device-to-device (D2D) communications underlying cellular network. We aim to maximize the system throughput and increase the spectral efficiency in wireless communications by integrating the concepts of D2D and FD communications. We formulate a throughput maximization problem and then based on its constraints we analytically derive […]

Application Performance Analysis of Distributed File Systems under Cloud Computing Environment

The processing efficiency of data-intensive application on Hadoop with the general-purpose distributed file system such as Lustre, as the backend file system, is not clear. This paper focuses on the similarities and differences between Lustre and HDFS (Hadoop Distributed File System). We propose a Hadoop-Lustre platform and evaluate the performance differences of Lustre and HDFS […]

The data mining applications of shoulder pain patients treatment: physical therapy equipment usage approaches

The purpose of this paper is to apply the data mining techniques to discover and predict the recovery duration from physical therapy equipment usage patterns based on a classification system and establish selection rules of physical therapy techniques based on the association rule discovery method to support the decision making for physical therapists in the […]

Study on impact of Vertical Sectorization on mobility and existing MRO performance

Mobility robustness optimization (MRO) is one of the Self Organizing Network (SON) features that automatically adjusts network mobility configurations by detecting problems and correcting handover (HO) parameters. The existing MRO operation is based on stationary network deployment assumption where handover error statistics are continuously monitored between cell-pair borders as long as the cells shape and neighbor relationships are maintained. In the […]
