Suitability of T source inverter based vector controlled drive for parallel mild hybrids

2015 IEEE International Conference on Signal Processing, Informatics, Communication and Energy Systems (SPICES), 2015

Voltage source inverter based drives are known to be smaller, reliable, and efficient and have relatively fewer issues than current source inverter based drives. However, in recent times impedance source inverters appear to be a promising candidate for these applications, as they carry the advantages of both voltage source inverters and current source inverters.

  • Suitability of T source inverter based vector controlled drive for parallel mild hybrids

    Voltage source inverter based drives are known to be smaller, reliable, and efficient and have relatively fewer issues than current source inverter based drives. However, in recent times impedance source inverters appear to be a promising candidate for these applications, as they carry the advantages of both voltage source inverters and current source inverters. This paper presents the performance of a T source inverter based vector controlled drive in a parallel mild hybrid vehicle. A T Source Inverter is a type of impedance source inverter with fewer passive elements. The performance of the drive is validated through a typical driving pattern which is most likely to be experienced by parallel hybrids utilizing electric power-assist strategy. The performance of this drive is also compared with a voltage source inverter based vector controlled drive for 22 seconds of a typical Indian urban driving cycle. The results of these analyses along with the performance of the proposed drive on initial parts of typical urban driving cycles in the US and Europe, helps in confirming the suitability of T source inverter based drives in these vehicles.

This can be useful for the study of equilibrium processes, reactions or detection of organic molecules in the confined environment of interlayer space offered by these 2D layered silicates.

  • New horizons spacecraft comprehensive performance test development

    The New Horizons spacecraft was launched on January 19, 2006, from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station aboard a Lockheed Martin Atlas V launch vehicle. It is the first mission of NASA's New Frontiers program and will be the first spacecraft to visit Pluto and its moon Charon, arriving July 14, 2015. An extended mission would include visits to one or more Kuiper Belt objects between 2016 and 2020. The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL) was responsible for the design, manufacturing, and test for the New Horizons mission and is now conducting mission operations. In order for this long mission to be completed successfully, it was critical that the appropriate testing be planned and executed prior to launch to verify all applicable mission requirements. A Comprehensive Performance Test (CPT) was performed that provided baseline test results. The spacecraft was subsequently subjected to environmental tests such as acoustic, thermal vacuum, shock release and spin tests. It was moved from JHU/APL to the Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) for environmental testing and to the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) for launch. The CPT was repeated numerous times throughout these tests and moves. Results that were not consistent with the baseline test results were carefully evaluated to determine whether they indicated a hardware problem or the possibility of a hardware problem occurring after launch. This paper discusses the development of the CPT, emphasizing the following: Selection of the requirements to be tested in the CPT, CPT building blocks , Building block development, CPT organization, CPT Challenges, CPT results, New Horizons Operations Simulator (NHOPS) certification using the CPT, Conclusions.

  • Antimatter driven sail for deep space missions

    The ultimate goal of this project is to identify and investigate an exploration architecture that would allow a light-weight instrument package to be sent to another stellar system. Due to the difficulty inherent in an interstellar mission, we have examined an architecture for a less demanding mission; sending a probe to the Kuiper Belt in a transit time of 10 years. Missions to deep space will require specific impulses greater than 6000 seconds in order to accomplish the mission within the career lifetime of an individual. Only two technologies available to mankind offer such performance; fusion and antimatter. Fusion has proven unattainable despite forty years of research and billion of dollars. Antimatter, alternatively, reacts with uranium 98% of the time in a well-described manner. However, development of a suitable propulsion system based on antimatter has not been shown until now. Our system analysis indicates that a 10 kg instrument payload could be sent to 250 AU in 10 years using 30 milligrams of antihydrogen. In addition, preliminary calculations also show that 17 grams of antihydrogen could send a similar probe to the next star, Alpha Centauri, in 40 years. We have designed a very straightforward system that will produce a variable specific impulse with a maximum of near one million seconds. The concept is one that can be throttled, that can be steered, and that can be demonstrated within the next two years. In this paper we identify the components of the system architecture that will be needed to perform a mission to the Kuiper Belt.

  • Pointing-vector and velocity based frequency predicts for deep-space uplink array applications

    Uplink array technology is currently being developed for NASA's Deep Space Network (DSN) to provide greater range and data throughput for future NASA missions, including manned missions to Mars and exploratory missions to the outer planets, the Kuiper belt, and beyond. Here we describe a novel technique for generating the frequency predicts that are used to compensate for relative Doppler, derived from interpolated earth position and spacecraft ephemerides. The method described here guarantees velocity and range estimates that are consistent with each other, hence one can always be recovered from the other. Experimental results have recently proven that these frequency predicts are accurate enough to maintain the phase of a three element array at the EPOXI spacecraft for three hours. Previous methods derive frequency predicts directly from interpolated relative velocities. However, these velocities were found to be inconsistent with the corresponding spacecraft range, meaning that range could not always be recovered accurately from the velocity predicts, and vice versa. Nevertheless, velocity-based predicts are also capable of maintaining uplink array phase calibration for extended periods, as demonstrated with the EPOXI spacecraft, however with these predicts important range and phase information may be lost. A comparison of the steering-vector method with velocity-based techniques for generating precise frequency predicts specifically for uplink array applications is provided in the following sections.

  • Single-channel speech-music separation using NMF for automatic speech recognition

    In this study, single-channel speech source separation is carried out to separate the speech from the background music, which degrades the speech recognition performance especially in broadcast news transcription systems. Since the separation is done using single observation of the source signals, the sources have to be previously modeled using training data. Non-negative Matrix Factorization (NMF) methods are used to model the sources. In order to model the source signals, different training data sets, which contain different music and speech data, are created and the effect of the training data sets are analyzed in this study. The performances of the methods are measured not only using separation performance measure but also with speech recognition performance measures.

  • Making Programs to Perceive Time Flow

    Biological rhythms in humans have cycles ranging from minutes to months. Those rhythms are based on changes in various physiological and behavioral functions of organisms that repeat at regular intervals providing a framework of temporal organization for them. This paper describes the mapping the biological clock concept from humans to machines in the context of a knowledge-based operating system. We have identified three dimensions over which such a new operating system paradigm has to be based: (i) physical dimension, (ii) logical dimension, and (iii) temporal dimension. The physical dimension describes the physical components and their structural relationship. The logical dimension describes the functional characteristics of each physical component and the time dimension is provided in order to enable the entire system to perceive the time flow - as a biological clock in human beings.

  • The evolution of metrics in modern telecommunication environment

    The transition from speech as the dominant service to data services has led to new trends in telecommunication business, and therefore the need to adjust legacy metrics and KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) that aims to point out the effects of these changes. In this paper, we give the development trends of new KPIs by which the telecommunications companies more accurately scaled the use of services and income generated from data driven services. Special attention was paid to the situation of the market in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the need for monitoring the trends in this area.
