  • Improving load regulation in current mode control through inductor current filtering

    Current mode control (CMC) though offers improved line regulation, phase margin and high bandwidth suffers from high output impedance. Although load regulation can be improved by incorporating an integral gain, it reduces the phase margin and increases the overshoot. The objective of this paper is to achieve improved output impedance without using an integral controller. Incorporating a high pass ...

  • Response time testing of temperature sensors using loop current step response method

    The Loop Current Step Response (LCSR) method is used for in–situ response time testing of temperature sensors as installed in an industrial process. This paper presents the theoretical foundation of the LCSR (test theory, LCSR equation and test procedures) and the author's research to validate its use in nuclear power industry applications. The validity of the LCSR method depends on how ...

  • Current advances in sustainable Metalworking Fluids research

    Metalworking Fluids (MWFs) have a history of harming the environment and the health of workers, resulting in pressures to re-design them in accordance with sustainable manufacturing principles. In this paper, we review research being performed at the University of Michigan to minimise the life cycle environmental and health impacts of MWFs while simultaneously improving manufacturing performance. ...

  • Environmental Sensors in Waste Management

    Issue: As part of an increasing sentiment among European consumers that environmental protection is important, concern about the impact of landfill is growing. Sensor technology makes it possible to measure and control inputs to landfill sites and pollutants arising from them. However, the exploitation - or uptake - of such technology has been lower than expected in the waste management sector. ...


  • Sensor data processing for emergency response

    A gap with current Emergency Response (ER) is the lack of real-time information on the status of an incident. Wireless sensor networks have shown great potential in addressing this gap. However, sensor data streams often contain 'noise', thus they are too difficult to be directly interpreted. In addition, sensor data are often meaningless unless it is associated with time and location ...

  • BLOOM Wastewater Sensor - Case Study

    Water is an integral input and vital strategic resource for the Ontario Food and Beverage Processing Sector. Water plays a variety of diverse and convergent functions. It is used for heating and cooling, blending, washing and rinsing, convey- ing, cleaning and sanitation – as well as being a vital product ingredient. However, the use of water inevitably leads to the generation of wastewater ...

  • Neural network-based shunt active filter with direct current control for power quality conditioning

    In this paper, a novel phase locked loop less control algorithm for harmonic and reactive power compensation with power factor improvement using three-phase shunt active power filter under non-ideal mains voltage conditions is presented. The performance of APF mainly depends upon how quickly and accurately compensation signal are estimated. The artificial neural network trained with conventional ...

  • Determining the Right Cable Length and Output for a Sensor

    If you’re monitoring a bridge or automating a machine, a high precision sensor is a great solution, but it’s no good if the output signal can’t reach the data logger. Depending on what you need to measure and what environment you’re in, determining how long your cable must run can be crucial. High precision sensors offer three common output types: analog, digital and ...

  • Towards practicable sensors using one-dimensional nanostructures

    Nanomaterials, including nanoparticles, nanowires, nanotubes etc., are the object of much well deserving attention by researchers and the public alike. Because of their novel properties associated with their typically large surface to volume ratios and finite- or quantum-size effects, they offer an avenue of exploration for new and interesting physics, chemistry, biology and materials science. ...

  • Online discharge measurement with horizontal doppler-flow sensor

    Background The regional authority responsible for the barrages in the Free State of Saxony is in charge of the water management of the Rötha. Reservoir. This reservoir is situated close to the river Pleiße, from which the water is led over a weir into the reservoir.. Knowledge about the inflows of the reservoir is important for the water management there. So far, the ...

    The new Lufft visibility sensor VS20k is now officially available. But what distinguishes it from the previous model and for which applications is it suitable? In the following article, you learn more about the new Lufft visibility sensor family… Reduced visibility – a risk for all traffic users Traffic accidents, flight cancellations and delays: Reduced visibility is ...

  • Upgrading from Pellistor Gas Sensors to Infrared Technology

    In this article Andy Avenell, Crowcon’s Fixed Systems Product Manager, considers the shift towards infrared (IR) gas sensor technology in the oil and gas industry. Abstract Flammable gases and vapours can present considerable dangers in many industrial applications, none more so than the processes involved in extracting, transporting and processing oil and gas. Fast and reliable ...

  • Sensor Setpoint Validation of Reclaimed Water UV Reactors

    ABSTRACTReclaimed water ultraviolet light (UV) disinfection system can be a critical component of a multiple barrier approach for public health protection. Current control methodologies rely upon assumed end of lamp life factors and sleeve fouling factors, which often result in overdosing when the lamps are new and the sleeves are clean and underdosing as the lamps ...

  • A blind estimation of speed and rotor position of permanent magnet synchronous motor from the measurements of stator currents using extended Kalman filter

    A number of techniques have been developed for estimation of speed or rotor position in motor drives. In this paper, an extended Kalman filter (EKF) is developed for the estimation of speed and rotor position using only the measurements of three phase stator currents. Conventional mechanical sensors are not needed for this estimation. The paper proposes the modelling of the dynamic equations of ...

  • Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler measurements near a weir with fish pass: assessing solutions to compass errors, spatial data referencing and spatial flow heterogeneity

    There has been an increasing interest in the use of Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (ADCPs) to characterise the hydraulic conditions near river engineering structures such as dams, fish passes and groins, as part of ecological and hydromorphological assessments. However, such ADCP applications can be limited by compass errors, obstructed view to navigation satellites, frequent loss of ...

  • Measurement of hydrocarbons in produced water using fiber optic sensor technology

    Due to the non-availability of Freon, there is need for an alternative method to measure the concentration of hydrocarbons in the effluent from oil water separators in use in the oil industry today. Current methods use solvent extraction and IR analysis of water samples. In this paper we present an alternative method, which does not use any solvents and can provide in-situ analysis of the ...

  • Accuracy in temperature sensor response time estimation for new nuclear reactor designs

    One method for measuring the response time of temperature sensors, the plunge test, verifies that the sensor has a suitable response time in the laboratory before installation. However, plunge test results cannot be extrapolated to the response time in an operating plant because response time is affected by multiple factors such as the ratio of internal heat-transfer resistance to the surface ...
