    User training is one of the most neglected aspects of clinical engineering. The initial results of a survey currently underway in hospitals in the United Kingdom, shows that clinical engineering departments spend 0.6% of their time either preparing for or providing training. At the same time they report that 23% of the reported failures of critical care equipment are due to user error. In this paper it is advocated that it is a mistake to ignore user training. Although investing in a formal training programme can be initially time consuming, with few short term results, in the long term it will have economic as well as safety benefits that will far outweigh the initial investment.

  • Availability issues in the design of self-healing networks

    A powerful approach to evaluating design options for fault-tolerant networks, such as modem transmission networks, from the point of view of availability is presented. A network for which demands are fixed in time and are routed through the network is considered. In the event of equipment failures, the demands can be rerouted. A fixed-point analytic method of modeling the availability of demands, to compare network topologies and routing schemes, to identify points of weakness, and to target investment in protection capacity, is applied. A method of estimating the variability of the out-turn end-to-end availability is also presented.<<ETX>>

  • Hubble Space Telescope on-orbit NiH/sub 2/ battery capacity performance (1990 to 2002)

    This work summarizes the Hubble Space Telescope nickel-hydrogen (NiH/sub 2/) battery capacity performance from launch to the present time. Over the life of HST vehicle configuration, equipment degradation and equipment failures have had a significant effect on the capacity of the HST batteries. Changes made to the charge system configuration in order to protect against equipment failures and to maintain battery thermal stability resulted in undercharging of the batteries. This undercharging resulted in decreased usable battery capacity as well as battery cell voltage/capacity divergence. This cell divergence was made evident during battery onorbit health checks by a more shallow slope of the discharge curve following the discharge knee. Early efforts to improve the battery performance have been successful. Onorbit health check data indicates increases in the usable battery capacity of all six batteries as well as improvements in the battery cell voltage/capacity divergence. Additional measures have been implemented to improve battery performance, however, failures within the HST Power Control Unit (PCU) has prevented verification of battery health. As this PCU fault prevents the execution of on-orbit capacity testing, the HST Project has based the battery capacity on trends, which utilizes previous onorbit battery capacity test data, for science mission and servicing mission planning. The servicing mission 3B, scheduled for February 2002, will replace the faulty PCU. Following the servicing mission, on-orbit capacity testing will resume.

  • Overvoltage protection and arrester selection for large wind plants

    The collector systems of large wind plants require the application of surge arresters to protect the insulation of unit transformers, cables, and substation equipment from transient overvoltages. The application of surge arresters is constrained by maximum operating and temporary overvoltage levels. This paper provides a tutorial description of the process of selecting and applying surge arresters to wind plant medium voltage collector systems, with emphasis on the peculiar properties of this application.

  • Board Level Drop Test Reliability for MCP Package

    With the increasing requirement of thinner, higher density and multi-function product, MCP (multi chip package) is becoming a more and more popular package. And for application in handheld systems, the package's resistance to drop impact becomes especially important. This study uses a simple DAQ system for the drop test according to JEDEC standard, discusses the effects of substrate pad denting, solder ball composition, and mold thickness on the reliability life, and through failure analysis the failure mechanism is explained

  • Optimality Principle Based Sink Tree Methodology for Adaptive Static Routing Using Multiple Route Configuration Scheme

    Optimality principle based sink tree methodology for adaptive static routing using multiple route configuration scheme is an innovative strategy for integrating dynamic routing protocol attributes seamlessly into static routing. In context of incapability to dynamically adapt to network topology failures and high management overhead, static routing still offers robustness to routing convergence failure, external route spoofing and easy prediction. This paper proposes a static routing strategy with an objective of extending its ability to adapt to logical network topology changes, equipment failures or network outages 'on the fly'. This strategy will involve discovery of all possible static routes from a specific source router to destination router, analyzing and ordering their applicability using optimality principle based sink tree approach. A random subnet composed of fifteen routers is simulated and mapped to sink tree and most obvious paths between random source and destination are analyzed. Static routes are traced to extract information about hop count from source to destination. The hop count information is recorded for each static route trace and comparative analysis is performed. Based on this comparison the static route are sorted in order of preference as per optimality principle and are offered to router as secondary routes in event of failure of primary preferred static route, thereby retaining the benefits of static routing while still availing the flexibility of dynamic routing to some extent.

  • Optimal Diagnostic Procedures

    In recent papers,<sup>1,2</sup> optimal diagnostic procedures are presented for some special cases. In this paper, we present an optimal diagnostic procedure under a different restriction, i.e., we consider equipment in which elements can only be tested one at a time, or all at once. Optimality is in the sense of minimum expected cost.
