Simulators are the Key for Large-Scale Instrumentation and Control System Refurbishment Projects

Janos Sebestyen Janosy 2008 Second Asia International Conference on Modelling & Simulation (AMS), 2008

With proper operation and waste management the nuclear fission power is one of the clearest and cheapest energy sources: no gases are emitted during the energy generation and other related preparatory etc. processes. The upcoming nuclear-fusion-based power plants are even more promising; all contamination in these plants will be decayed practically to nil in less than 100 years. Renewable energy ...


Short-current pulse-based maximum-power-point tracking method for multiple photovoltaic-and-converter module system

T. Noguchi; S. Togashi; R. Nakamoto IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics, 2002

This paper proposes a novel maximum-power-point tracking (MPPT) method with a simple algorithm for photovoltaic (PV) power generation systems. The method is based on use of a short-current pulse of the PV to determine an optimum operating current where the maximum output power can be obtained and completely differs from conventional hill-climbing-based methods. In the proposed system, the optimum operating ...

  • Frequency Conversion

    Because frequency conversion is a nonlinear process, many products, other than the desired one at the sum or difference frequency, are produced. A good estimate of the frequencies and amplitudes of these spurious products is important in designing a system to make use of the desired signal while avoiding contamination from these spurious products. A graphical method for displaying all of these outputs along with the regions that will pass through the RF and IF filters produces a picture in which the designer can clearly view the design problem and solution. Theory giving the relationships between the signal levels and the levels of the various spurious products provides another key input.

  • Stamp: An Accident Model Based on Systems Theory

    Engineering has experienced a technological revolution, but the basic engineering techniques applied in safety and reliability engineering, created in a simpler, analog world, have changed very little over the years. In this groundbreaking book, Nancy Leveson proposes a new approach to safety--more suited to today's complex, sociotechnical, software-intensive world--based on modern systems thinking and systems theory. Revisiting and updating ideas pioneered by 1950s aerospace engineers in their System Safety concept, and testing her new model extensively on real-world examples, Leveson has created a new approach to safety that is more effective, less expensive, and easier to use than current techniques. Arguing that traditional models of causality are inadequate, Leveson presents a new, extended model of causation (Systems- Theoretic Accident Model and Processes, or STAMP), then then shows how the new model can be used to create techniques for system safety engineering, including accident analysis, hazard analysis, system design, safety in operations, and management of safety-critical systems. She applies the new techniques to real-world events including the friendly-fire loss of a U.S. Blackhawk helicopter in the first Gulf War; the Vioxx recall; the U.S. Navy SUBSAFE program; and the bacterial contamination of a public water supply in a Canadian town. Leveson's approach is relevant even beyond safety engineering, offering techniques for "reengineering" any large sociotechnical system to improve safety and manage risk.
