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 […]

An Oscilloscope Correction Method for Vector-Corrected RF Measurements

The transfer characteristics of the RF front-end circuitry of a real-time oscilloscope (RTO) are not only frequency dependent and nonlinear with signal amplitude but also dependent on the voltage range setting of the oscilloscope. A correction table in the frequency domain is proposed to account for the additional gain and delay introduced when switching between […]

A Socio-Physical Approach to Systemic Risk Reduction in Emergency Response and Preparedness

This paper proposes a socio-physical approach that considers jointly the interaction and integration of the social and physical views of a system to improve emergency response and preparedness. This is accomplished through a reduction of systemic risk, which refers to a risk that could be greater than the sum of the risks of the individual […]

An enhanced router based queuing policy providing better fairness to real-time data transfers in Internet

Forwarding and delivery in IP based internet is a best effort service. IP being a connectionless forwarding mechanism, it may drop the packets at the time of congestion. This may affect the services in internet as it is not able to deliver the packet with sufficient Quality of service (QOS). The reliability mechanism adopted by […]

A hardware-in-the-loop simulator for demand response energy management in industrial facilities

Demand response (DR) used in smart grid (SG) can enhance the reliability of the power system as well as reduce the energy costs for customers. One of the major consumers of electrical energy is industry. In this study, we develop a hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulator to demonstrate how to practically implement DR in industrial facilities. The […]

A new hybrid traffic generation model for Tactical Internet reliability test

Tactical Internet (TI) is the communication infrastructure of tactical level maneuver warfare forces; its reliability directly affects the military combat. Therefore, in the TI reliability test, how to generate the appropriate network traffic and get the most accurate evaluation results should be an important part of the TI reliability test research. This paper analyzes the […]

Successful realization of Non-Foster circuits for wide-band antenna applications

Non-Foster circuits (NFCs) are promising for numerous microwave and antenna applications because they are not limited by the gain-bandwidth product. Although NFCs can be very useful in many applications, successful realization of these circuits is difficult because they suffer from several issues, including losses, noise, and instability. As a consequence, an accurate and efficient design […]

Prospects for electric vehicles technology with renewable energy sources in a Smart-Grid environment – An introduction

This article is focused on issues concerning electric vehicle technology, linked to the use of renewable sources and their incorporation into the concept of modern automated (unattended) traffic systems – ATS. This concept creates an ideal environment for the generation and development of so-called “Smart Grids”. Deployment of electric vehicles (herein abbreviated to EV) and […]

A new bandwidth-efficient multicast routing scheme for mobile Ad hoc Networks

This paper proposes an improved scheme based on Bandwidth-Efficient Multicast Routing (BEMR) for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANET) to further reduce the control overhead whilst increasing the overall bandwidth efficiency. After carefully studying the original BEMR design, two new approaches are proposed to enhance the BEMR performance. One is in the tree set-up phase, while […]
