Paper - Oil Insulation - New Definition of Damage

Efrain Asenjo; Galo Eidelstein IEEE Transactions on Electrical Insulation, 1978

Results obtained in paper insulation tests have led to a new definition of the damage as D = K (Vn t)á, when the appearance of partial discharges with 25 pC of apparent charge is used aa a failure criteration. It is suggested that the proposed expression for damage can be generalized to the aging of soild insulators if the criterion ...


Temperature insensitive current reference circuit using standard CMOS devices

Takeshi Shima 2007 50th Midwest Symposium on Circuits and Systems, 2007

In this paper, temperature insensitive current reference circuit is proposed. The reference current value is determined by using the threshold voltage controlled circuit. The main difference from the previous work (Georglou and Toumazou, 2002) is that the circuit can be fabricated by the standard CMOS process. The resistor and the transistor physical parameter temperature dependences are compensated with each other ...


Active power control strategies for inverter-based distributed power generation adapted to grid-fault ride-through requirements

Fei Wang; Jorge L. Duarte; Marcel A. M. Hendrix Power Electronics and Applications, 2009. EPE '09. 13th European Conference on, 2009

Distributed power generation is expected to deliver power into the grid without interruption during voltage dips. To improve system ride-through capabilities, a generalized active power control strategy is proposed for grid-interfacing inverters. Specifically, a current reference generation strategy based on symmetric-sequence components of unbalanced three-phase three-wire or four-wire systems is derived. It is shown that a single adjustable parameter can ...

A study of network routers for real-time parallel computers

A. Saha; R. Neogi Parallel and Distributed Real-Time Systems, 1995. Proceedings of the Third Workshop on, 1995

A candidate network function is accurately defined for real-time parallel computers. A concise, time-driven, flit-based, priority-driven, wormhole- routed, network simulator has been designed. Experimentation is performed by monitoring the latency and the throughput with variations in different network parameters. Initially the destination address, message length and message priority are generated randomly with a uniform distribution. Then, various non-uniformities are introduced ...

  • Ingestible Health Care System Paradigm for Wireless Capsule Endoscopy

    This chapter offers a survey of wireless capsule endoscopy (WCE) and endoscopic imaging by evaluating some representative methodologies as well as that WCE technology is also used in colonoscopy. The detection of various organs inside the digestive tract is an important tool for the physician. The chapter presents challenges related to the WCE approaches. In diagnostic endoscopy, based on a distributed perception of local changes, the medical expert interprets the physical surface properties of the tissue, such as the roughness or the smoothness, the regularity, and the shape, to detect abnormalities. According to Fireman and Kopelman (2010): Researchers have proposed the idea that endoscopists will be able to control and steer the Capsule Endoscopy (CE), as they are able to do in standard endoscopy. The chapter also proposes the design of a WCE robotic capsule for diagnostic/therapeutic endoscopy.

  • Future Technologies for Medical Applications

    The modern age of surgery began at the end of the nineteenth century because medicine discovered the Industrial Age, with its wealth of revolutionary technologies such as anesthesia, asepsis, microscopy, and new materials. At the close of the twentieth century, the Information Age diffused into medicine, and a revolution of even greater magnitude occurred. To understand the change it is necessary to look outside of medicine to society as a whole and find the underlying principles, and then apply them within our discipline. The medical record is now becoming electronic and nearly all of our imaging has changed from film (atoms) to digital images (bits). Medical education is using computer-aided instructions, CD-ROM, and VR to simulate and supplement cadaver and animal models. With the new research in robotics, even our hand motions are being changed in to electronic signals and being sent from one place to another. The future of medicine is no longer blood and guts, but bits and bytes. A commonality of information enables us to tie together a whole new concept of how medicine could evolve, like an entire medical ecosystem, whereby discoveries in micro-sensors permits new imaging devices, which in turn enable new forms of image-based surgery. It is an upward spiral, one discovery providing a giant step forward toward the next technology and escalating the whole changing system logarithmically. This could help explain why we are all so overwhelmed by the rapidity of our changing profession. Yet the younger generation of physicians-to-be are not so uncomfortable with the rapidly changing technologies. One of their fundamental tools is the ability to understand the world in the form of three-dimensional (3-D) visualization. There is a speculative scenario that can be used as a framework to illuminate the integrating power of this concept. It is referred to as the doorway t o the future and extrapolates to 20, 50 or perhaps 100 years into the future. As a patient visits her surgeon for a consult, she passes through the office door and, just as scanning is performed today by airport security, she has multiple imaging modalities scanning her (perhaps CT, MRI, ultrasound, and infrared). The data are all collected and then displayed as a 3-D image of her (looking like the Visible Human) but with not only correct anatomic structure but also all the biochemical and other data added to the correct organ systems. If an abnormality is seen, such as a colon mass, a virtual colonoscopy can be done on the image by flying through the colon with the same view as an actual colonoscopy. If a lesion is found, the image can be used for patient education, illustrating to the patient exactly what her specific problem is. At the time of surgery, an image can be imported onto the video monitor of laparoscopic colon resection, and with data fusion the two images displayed simultaneously as an intraoperative navigation tool (stereotactic navigation). At the postoperative follow up visit, the patient is scanned again, by comparing the postoperative with the preoperative datasets and using digital subtraction techniques, the difference between the two datasets is automatic outcomes analysis. Because the record is a dataset, it can be stored on a credit card (the U.S. military is using a prototype card called the MARC card) or kept on a Web server to be distributed worldwide over the Internet for consultation. The purpose of the this scenario is to provide an explanation of and rationale for why it is so important to understand how information can empower us, to show the looking glass through which the next-generation surgeon will be viewing the world. To bring the scenario out of the speculative and rhetorical and into the real world, the technologies that these views are presented in this chapter must be held accountable to the scrutiny of science. Only when these new discoveries are properly evaluated with rigorous testing and clinical trials can ...
