  • Application of the Model

    This book describes a novel, cross-linguistic approach to machine translation that solves certain classes of syntactic and lexical divergences by means of a lexical conceptual structure that can be composed and decomposed in language- specific ways. This approach allows the translator to operate uniformly across many languages, while still accounting for knowledge that is specific to each language.The translation model can be used to map a source-language sentence to a target-language sentence in a principled fashion. It is built on the basis of a parametric approach, making it easy to change from one language to another (by setting syntactic switches for each language and providing lexical descriptions for each language) without having to write a whole new processor for each language.Dorr's approach advances the field of machine translation in a number of important ways: it provides a uniform processor in which the same syntactic and lexical-semantic processing modules are used for each language; it is interlingual, able to derive an underlying language-independent form of the source language that allows any of the three target languages - Spanish, English, or German - to be produced from this form; and it describes a systematic mapping between the lexical-semantic level and the syntactic level that allows the appropriate target-language words to be selected and realized, despite the potential for syntactic and lexical divergences.Bonnie Jean Dorr is Assistant Professor in the Computer Science Department at the University of Maryland.

  • Machine Aid for Switching Circuit DesignDecimal classification: 621.375.2R257. Original manuscript received by the Institute, May 28, 1953; revised manuscript received June 29, 1953.

    The design of circuits composed of logical elements may be facilitated by auxiliary machines. This paper describes one such machine, made of relays, selector switches, gas diodes, and germanium diodes. This machine (called the relay circuit analyzer) has as inputs both a relay contact circuit and the specifications the circuit is expected to satisfy. The analyzer (1) verifies whether the circuit satisfies the specifications, (2) makes systematic attempts to simplify the circuit by removing redundant contacts, and also (3) obtains mathematically rigorous lower bounds for the numbers and types of contacts needed to satisfy the specifications. A special feature of the analyzer is its ability to take advantage of circuit specifications which are incompletely stated. The auxiliary machine method of doing these and similar operations is compared with the method of coding them on a general-purpose digital computer.

  • FCS Predictive Control in - Reference Frame

    This chapter presents a much simpler approach to the implementation of the control systems by direct optimization of an error function between the desired control signals and those that can be achieved by the semiconductor switches. By analysing the original finite control set (FCS) predictive control system without constraints, the discrete-time feedback controller gain and the locations of the closed-loop eigenvalues are revealed. To embed integrators in the FCS predictive controller, a cascade controller structure is proposed to form the I-FCS predictive controller. The I-FCS predictive control system has kept the spirit of the original FCS predictive control system and maintained its simplicity both conceptually and computationally. With this approach, there is no need to use the PWM technology, therefore it significantly reduces the complexity of controlling the semiconductor switches. Extensive simulation and experimental results are used to show its outstanding closed-loop control performance in both transient and steady-state responses. MATLAB tutorials are presented in this chapter to show how embedded functions can be created for the FCS and I-FCS predictive controllers.

  • Two???Level Voltage Source Inverter

    This chapter focuses on pulse width modulation (PWM) schemes for the highpower two???level inverter, where the device switching frequency is normally below 1 kHz. A carrier based sinusoidal PWM (SPWM) scheme is reviewed, followed by a detailed analysis of space vector modulation (SVM) algorithms. The conventional SVM scheme usually generates both even??? and odd???order harmonic voltages. The chapter analyses mechanism of even???order harmonic generation, and presents a modified SVM scheme for even???order harmonic elimination. The primary function of a voltage source inverter (VSI) is to convert a fixed DC voltage to a three???phase AC voltage with variable magnitude and frequency. The dwell time for the stationary vectors essentially represents the duty???cycle time of the chosen switches during a sampling period. The dwell time calculation is based on 'volt???second balancing' principle, the product of the reference voltage and sampling period equals the sum of the voltage multiplied by the time interval of chosen space vectors.

  • What Types of Interactions Do Bio-Inspired Robot Swarms and Flocks Afford a Human?

    This paper uses simulations to identify what types of human influence are afforded by the flocking and swarming structures that emerge from Couzin's bio-inspired model [4]. The goal is to allow a human to influence a decentralized agent collective without resorting to centralized human control. Evidence is provided that, when nominal agents use switching-based control to respond to human-guided predators and leaders, the resulting behavior is responsive to human input but is obtained at the cost of causing the dynamic structure of the collective to follow a single flocking structure. Leaders are more effective in influencing coherent flocks, but predators can be used to divide the flock into sub-flocks, yielding higher performance on some problems. Introducing a so-called "stakeholder" leadership style makes it possible for a human to guide the agents while maintaining several different types of structures; doing so requires more than one human-controlled agent. We then demonstrate that it is possible to produce potentially useful emergent dynamics without centralized human control, and identify an important type of emergent dynamics: automatic switches between structure types.

  • Opening Switches

    Opening switches are critical components for inductive storage systems and also find applications in pulse compression and power distribution systems. Inductive storage systems are very attractive because the stored energy density is orders of magnitude larger than can be stored in capacitors. This chapter shows a typical schematic of an inductive energy storage device. The key to unlocking the potential of inductive energy storage is the opening switch, and numerous opening switch concepts have been proposed for singleshot operation. Repetitive operation of opening switches would impose additional design requirements for efficient heat removal. The chapter discusses the basic concepts and principal features of various opening switch configurations. The overall efficiency of an opening switch in an inductive energy storage system is determined by conduction time and opening time of the switch, the trigger sources for opening and closing the switch, and the rate at which the dielectric recovers its electrical strength.

  • Power Rail Segmentation and Deployment

    Power supply rails, often simply referred as power rails, for road???powered electric vehicles (RPEVs) are often segmented like the conventional iron rails. We do not want to turn on the power rail with no running EVs on it and we want to turn on the power rail only for providing wireless power to EVs. There are a few power rail segmentation methods, mainly developed by Chun T. Rim, which will be introduced in this chapter.New cross???segmented power supply rails for RPEVs are explained in this chapter for reducing the construction cost and EMF. The proposed rail consists of two pairs of power cables, core, bidirectional power switches, a transformer, capacitors, and harness. Each rail is connected through a switch box, which can change the current direction of a pair of power cables. Hence, adding the current of the two pairs of power cables results in the activation mode while nullifying the current performs the silence mode. A coupling transformer with two capacitors is introduced to compensate for the variable line inductance of the rail due to the change of current direction. Therefore, multiple rails can be concurrently activated by selective turning the power switches on and off using an inverter. In addition, the EMF for the silence mode is drastically reduced if a twisted pair of power cables and copper nets are used, so that the ICNIRP Guideline 6.25 ??T at 20 kHz operating frequency can be met. The proposed cross???segmented power supply rail was implemented for experiments and verified for practical applications.This chapter is based on the paper by S. Choi, J. Huh, S. Lee, and C.T. Rim, ???New cross???segmented power supply rails for road powered electric vehicles,??? IEEE Trans. on Power Electronics, vol. 28, no. 12, pp. 5832???5841, December 2013.

  • Control of Semiconductor Switches via PWM Technologies

    Control of the semiconductor switches is the most efficient and convenient means to achieve the control of power converters and machine drives. This chapter shows that they act as the actuators in the implementation of the control systems where the manipulated control inputs in the form of three phase voltage signals are realized by turning on and off the semiconductor switches. Several carrier based PWM techniques and space vector modulation are discussed in this chapter. A simulation study of the effect of PWM is conducted to reveal the current ripples.
