Design and Evaluation of a Discrete Wavelet Transform based Multi-Signal Receiver

ABSTRACT

General purpose receivers of today are designed with a broad bandwidth so that the receiver can accept a wide range of signal frequencies. These receivers usually accept one signal along with an y interference that is included. To increase the signal Continue reading

An Event Reporting and Early-Warning Safety System based on the Internet of Things for Underground Coal Mines: A Case Study

ABSTRACT

Fatal accidents associated with underground coal mines require the implementation of high-level gas monitoring and miner’s localization approaches to promote underground safety and health. This study introduces a real-time monitoring, event-reporting and Continue reading

Improving Energy Efficiency in CNC Machining

INTRODUCTION

Although still electrically-powered and operating on the same basic principles, modern CNC milling machines are significantly different from older milling machines. [Kordonowy 2002] studied several generations of milling machines in order to compare their Continue reading

A pattern recognition method for electronic noses based on an olfactory neural network

ABSTRACT

Artificial neural networks (ANNs) are generally considered as the most promising pattern recognition method to process the signals from a chemical sensor array of electronic noses, which makes the system more bionics. This paper presents a chaotic Continue reading

Conversion of Artificial Recurrent Neural Networks to Spiking Neural Networks for Low-power Neuromorphic Hardware

ABSTRACT

In recent years the field of neuromorphic low-power systems gained significant momentum, spurring brain-inspired hardware systems which operate on principles that are fundamentally different from standard digital computers and thereby Continue reading

Incorporating geographical factors with artificial neural networks to predict reference values of erythrocyte sedimentation rate

ABSTRACT

Background:

The measurement of the Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR) value is a standard procedure performed during a typical blood test. In order to formulate a unified standard of establishing reference ESR values, this paper presents a novel Continue reading

Aperture Coupled Microstrip Antenna Design and Analysis

ABSTRACT

A linearly-polarized aperture coupled patch antenna design is characterized and optimized using HFSS antenna simulation software. This thesis focuses on the aperture coupled patch antenna due to the lack of fabrication and tuning documentation Continue reading

Java Simulations of Embedded Control Systems

ABSTRACT

This paper introduces a new Open Source Java library suited for the simulation of embedded control systems. The library is based on the ideas and architecture of TrueTime, a toolbox of Matlab devoted to this topic, and allows Java programmers Continue reading

Grid Synchronization of a Seven-Phase Wind Electric Generator using d-q PLL

ABSTRACT

The evolving multiphase induction generators (MPIGs) with more than three phases are receiving prominence in high power generation systems. This paper aims at the development of a comprehensive model of the wind turbine driven Continue reading

An Overview of Binary Arithmetic Architectures & Their Implementation in DSP Systems

INTRODUCTION

Many branches of the electrical engineering industry involve applications that use digital signal processing. Almost any type of signal that comes in analog form, such as sound, video, and radio or microwaves, must use digital signal processing for Continue reading
