Paper Title:

Electricity Demand Side Management: Various Concept and Prospects

Abstract: Since electrical energy is the form of energy that cannot be effectively stored in bulk, it must be generated, distributed and consumed immediately. But load on the power plant is variable in nature. The power plants are designed to meet the maximum demand. However, there is large difference between peak demand and average demand which results in high generation cost per unit. Since peak demand is increasing sharply that demand large installed capacity. It is not possible for developing countries to meet the targeted capacity by installing new power plants. Since electricity is an essential input in all the sectors of any country, hence we need to focus on alternating means by which electricity can be saved and effectively utilized.  The effective solution to above said problem is DSM strategies that lower the peak demand and bring immediate benefit to utilities and customers. This paper deals with the basic concept of Demand Side Management (DSM), objective, problems, types of DSM measures and theoretical and practical approach by which electricity demand could be reduced at consumer end through effectively control and manage loads from utility side, and to use unsustainable energy practices into more efficient.

A Pattern Recognition Framework for Embedded Sensor Electronics

Abstract: The  recent  developments in the area of high speed micro-electronics and computational intelligence has opened new opportunities in smart sensor design. In this paper a generic pattern recognition framework is presented for integrated sensor based system design. Two case studies are described for Rock-Image Classification and Pulse Shape Identification. Both applications use same framework that consist of pre-processing of sensor data, wavelet based data compression, feature extraction and neural net based feature classification. The rock identification combines multi-parameter analysis to improve the accuracy. The proposed system is tested using above two case studies for real time application. The average accuracy observed for pulse shape and rock type identification is 96% and 95% respectively. The system is applicable for similar sensor based embedded systems. The application is developed under a Planetary Exploration Technology Research project.

Utilization of Non -oven Jute felt - A natural Fiber as a Substitution of Wood Veneer for Manufacture of Plywood

Abstract: In this study the suitability of using core veneer made from renewable natural fiber i.e. Non-oven jute felt, which is the second most widely used natural fiber for manufacturing of plywood was investigated to minimize the gap between demand and supply of wood veneer. The renewable natural hard jute fibre was impregnated with phenolic resin and was used for the manufacture of plywood. Plywood of 4 mm, 6 mm, 12 mm and 18 mm thick were manufactured by using phenolic resin impregnated jute felt having thickness 16mm of 1850 GSM (approx.) as a core in place of the natural wood veneer. From the study, it can be inferred that PF Resin impregnated Non oven jute felt as a natural fibre can suitably replace the wooden glue core veneer to manufacture ply board up to 80% as an alternative substitute of wood. The physico-mechanical properties such as surface roughness, moisture content, density, water absorption, swelling, compressive strength, tensile strength, static bending strength, glue shear strength, of the plywood manufactured by using jute felt as core veneer with different resin dilution have been studied. Data revels that most of the physico-mechanical properties of the plywood showed satisfactory results meeting the requirement of different grades of plywood tested as per IS: 1734 - 1983. The accelerated study of the  glued core after impregnation with jute felt have been carried out for three months before plywood manufacture after storing it in proper temperature and humidity. The data revealed that there is no appreciable change in bond quality and mechanical properties of the plyboard manufactured after storing the veneer up to 30 days. The study concluded that wood substituted jute composites could be an ideal solution with ever depleting forest reserves where utilization of renewable resources will be beneficiary for plywood industries to meet the challenges during scarcity of veneer by reducing the cost of imported veneer.

Non-Linear Pushover Analysis of Flatslab Building by using SAP2000 

Abstract: Recent earthquakes in which many concrete structures have been severely damaged or collapsed, have indicated the need for evaluating the seismic adequacy of existing buildings. About 60% of the land area of our country is susceptible to damaging levels of seismic hazard. We can’t avoid future earthquakes, but preparedness and safe building construction practices can certainly reduce the extent of damage and loss. In order to strengthen and resist the buildings for future earthquakes, some procedures have to be adopted. One of the procedures is the static pushover analysis which is becoming a popular tool for seismic performance evaluation of existing and new structures. By conducting this push over analysis, we can know the weak zones in the structure and then we will decide whether the particular part is retrofitted or rehabilitated according to the requirement. In this paper we are performing the push over analysis on flat slabs by using most common software SAP2000.Many existing flat slab buildings may not have been designed for seismic forces. Hence it is important to study their response under seismic conditions and to evaluate seismic retrofit schemes. But when compared to beam-column connections, flat slabs are becoming popular and gaining importance as they are economical.

Effect of Heat Treatment on Damping Properties of Nanoclay Particulate Reinforced MMCs

Abstract: The thermo-mechanical behaviour of Aluminium alloy reinforced with nanoclay particulate was investigated by resonant-bar method. The aging response was detected in specimens, damping and DSC observation. The damping capacity of composite increased with increasing reinforcement of nanoclay and showed a peak in damping capacity during aging. These results indicate that the aging and precipitation kinetics in the matrix alloy are significantly accelerated due to the presence of reinforcement. The damping mechanisms, intrinsic damping, interface damping, dislocation damping and grain boundary damping are discussed.

Theoretical Investigation on Metamaterial Coupler: A Comparative Study

Abstract: Two novel edge-coupler-line composite right/left-handed metamaterial couplers are presented in this paper, a symmetric “impedance coupler” and an asymmetric “phase coupler”, explained by a even/odd mode analysis. These two couplers are based on fundamentally different principles but exhibit the advantage of providing arbitrary coupling levels(up to quasi-complete coupling), where as conventional edge-coupled couplers are typically limited to less than 10-dB maximum coupling, while conserving the broad-bandwidth Benefit of their convention counterparts. The coupler is shown to exhibit broad bandwidth and tight coupling.

Performance Evaluation of Resource Allocation Technique for OFDMA WiMAX System

Abstract: Orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA) has recently attracted vast research attention from both academia and industry and has become part of new standards for broadband wireless communication. In this paper, I addressed the radio resource allocation in the downlink of an OFDMA system and K&H and MPF scheduler algorithm for resource allocation. By comparing the output parameter of both the algorithm get the performance characteristics of OFDMA system. Both scheduling algorithm are based on the quality of service (QoS) requirements of each service flow in terms of BER and data rate. The results show that the algorithms give way fairness among real-time and non real-time service flows as well as guaranteeing their constraint in term of QoS and spectrum efficiency.

Paper Title:

A Comparative Study of Different Low Power Techniques for SRAM

Abstract: There is three type of low power technique discussed here for Static random access memory. One is Quiet Bit line architecture in which the voltage of bit line stay as low as possible. To prevent the excessive full-swing charging on the bitline one-side driving scheme for write operation is used and for read precharge free-pulling scheme is used to keep all bit lines at low voltages at all times.  Second is Body bias technique which decreases the process variation on the SRAM cell and it can operate at 0.3 and write margin is not degraded. Third is half –swing Pulse-mode techniques in which Half-swing Pulse-mode gate family is used that uses reduced input signal swing without sacrificing performance and  to save the power, bit lines are operated from   instead of .

Paper Title:

Optimized Control Technique for Power Window in Smart Car using H Filter

Abstract: A practical pinch torque estimator based on the H∞ filter is proposed for low-cost anti-pinch window control systems. To obtain the acceptable angular velocity measurements, the angular velocity calculation algorithm was proposed with the measurement noise reduction logics in previous method. Apart from the previous works based on the angular velocity or torque estimates for detecting the pinched condition, the proposed pinch detection algorithm makes use of the torque rate information integrated with state flow chart. To do this, the torque rate is augmented to the system model and the torque rate estimator is derived by applying the steady-state H∞ filter recursion to the model. The motivation of this approach comes from the idea that the torque rate is less sensitive to the motor parameter uncertainties. Moreover, the statistics of modeling errors and angular velocity measurement noises are actually unknown. Hence, the proposed scheme minimizes the anti-pinch window control system's exposure to the false alarm. To detect the pinched condition, a systematic way to determine the threshold level of the torque rate estimates is also suggested via the deterministic estimation error analysis. Experimental results certify the pinch detection performance of the proposed algorithm and its robustness against the motor parameter uncertainties.

A Real Time IMC Tuned PID Controller for  DC Motor

Abstract: This paper presents a Internal Model Control(IMC) tuned PID controller method for the DC motor for robust operation.IMC is a process model approach to design the PID controller parameter to obtain the optimal setpoint tracking and load disturbance rejection.This method of control which is based on the accurate model of the process,leads to the design of a control system that is stable and robust.The results of the IMC tuning method when compared with the Ziegler Nichols (ZN) closed loop tuning provides a commendable improvement in the overshoot,rise time and settling time of the system.Simulated results in LabVIEW and Matlab using the PID and IMC are presented and also the same has been implemented and tested for a 12volt DC motor.

A Comparison of Different Measures to Evaluate the Semantic Relatedness of Text and its Application

Abstract: This paper presents a knowledge-based and experiment-based method for measuring the semantic similarity of texts. While there is a large body of previous work focused on finding the semantic similarity of concepts and words, the application of these word oriented methods to text similarity has not been yet explored. Five different proposed measures of similarity or semantic distance in WordNet were experimentally compared by examining their performance in a real-word spelling correction system.

Investigation and Analysis of New Approach of Intelligent Semantic Web Search Engines

Abstract:  As we know that www is allowing peoples to share the huge information globally from the big database repositories. The amount of information grows billions of databases. Hence to search particular information from these huge databases we need the specialized mechanism which helps to retrieve that information efficiently. Now days various types of search engines are available which makes information retrieving is difficult. But to provide the better solution to this problem, semantic web search engines are playing vital role. Basically main aim of this kind of search engines is to providing the required information is small time with maximum accuracy. But the problem with semantic search engines is that those are vulnerable while answering the intelligent queries. These kinds of search engines don’t have much efficiency as per expectations by end users, as most of time they are providing the inaccurate information’s. Thus in this paper we are presenting the new approach for semantic search engines which will answer the intelligent queries also more efficiently and accurately. With the keywords based searches they usually provide results from blogs or other discussion boards. The user cannot have a satisfaction with these results due to lack of trusts on blogs etc. To get the trusted results search engines require searching for pages that maintain such information at some place. Here propose the intelligent semantic web based search engine. We use the power of xml meta-tags deployed on the web page to search the queried information. The xml page will be consisted of built-in and user defined tags. The metadata information of the pages is extracted from this xml into rdf. Our practical results showing that proposed approach taking very less time to answer the queries while providing more accurate information.

Collaboration between SOA and Cloud Computing at a Glance

Abstract: SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) is an architectural style which is about orchestration of services whereas cloud computing is an autonomic computing which delivers computing as a service rather than product. People may consider SOA and Cloud as competitors but they complement each other. Cloud computing embraces the notion of “everything as a service” and covers three categories of service: infrastructure, platform and software as a service. SOA’s approach of managing and governing processes is well-defined and has a potential for being applied to everything as a service in cloud. Since SOA is a relatively mature field, than Cloud, there is a good scope for cloud computing to judiciously inherit from best practice in SOA governance.

Survey of Harmonics in Non Linear Loads

Abstract: The use of non linear loads is increasing day by day. This increasing use of non linear loads has created more distortions in current and voltage waveforms. This increased power quality disturbances has lead to various optimizations techniques and filter designs. Harmonic distortions are the major cause for power quality problems. For this analyzing the harmonics present in non linear loads is significant. Here a survey is made to show details of harmonics present in various non linear loads.

Paper Title:

Definitions and benefits of Distributed Generation Technologies

Abstract: The application of deregulation in the electric power sector and as a result of that, a new identity appeared in the electric power system map known as “distributed generation” (DG). Consistent with new technology, the electric power generation trend uses disbursed generator sized from kW to MW at load sits in preference to using traditional centralized generation units sized from 100MW to GW and situated far from the loads where the natural recourses are accessible. This paper introduces an appraisal of this revolutionary approach of DGs, which will change the way of electric power systems operate along with their types and operating technologies. Some important definitions of DGs and their operational constraints are discussed to help in understanding the concepts and regulations related to DGs. Furthermore, we will review the operational and economical benefits of implementing DGs in the distribution network. Most DG literatures are based on studying the definitions, constructions or benefits of DGs separately. Conversely, in our paper we aim to give a comprehensive review by adding new classifications to relate the DG types, technologies and applications to each other.

Paper Title:

Clustering Approach  For Distributed Cooperative Detection in Cognitive Radio Networks

Abstract: There have been significant advancements towards realizations of cognitive radios, as well as towards the development of the various enabling technologies needed for the diverse potential application scenarios of CRs. Nevertheless, we have also seen that a lot of further research and development work is definitely needed before general cognitive wireless networks can be realized. Cognitive radios (CRs) can exploit vacancies in licensed frequency bands to self-organize in opportunistic spectrum networks. Such networks, henceforth referred to as Cognitive Radio Networks (CRNs), operate over a dynamic bandwidth in both time and space. This inherently leads to the partition of the network into clusters depending on the spatial variation of the Primary Radio Network (PRN) activity. Many of the solutions mentioned earlier have been designed only for limited-size CRN, for example due to the presence of centralized controllers. However, we would ideally like to be able to extend such a paradigm to virtually infinite CRNs.  In this work, Weighted Clustering Algorithm designed for basic cluster formation for CRNs is proposed, which explicitly can take into account the spatial variations of spectrum opportunities in future.

A  Research  of  a New  Technique of  Open  Loop  Control  Algorithm  For Stepper  Motor  Using  CPLD 

Abstract: With  the  21st century  if  the  Stepper  Motor  and other  motors  operates  remotely  by the mobile phone it is obviously advantageous for the Industry. A Wireless remote reduces the difficulty for controlling the Stepper motor. But remote still offers limitations because it is limited in a particular range. If it is interfaced with the mobile phone as a remote control then the project will get higher usability and scope. Previously Stepper Motor movements were controlled through various types of devices such as microprocessor, microcontroller and PLC (programmable logic device) but all these have certain limitations that’s why in this research, another hardware solution is incorporated. Complex programmable logic device (CPLD) is suitable for fast implementation and quick hardware verification. CPLD based systems are flexible and can be reconfigured unlimited number of times. In this research Hardware Description Languages (VHDL) is used.

A Novel Idea for Further Bit Rate Reduction in BTC based Techniques for Image Compression

Abstract: Block Truncation Coding (BTC) is a simple and fast lossy image compression technique for digitized gray scale images. In this paper, a novel idea for further reducing the bit rate is introduced. The BTC and its two other variants, one being the Absolute Moment Block Truncation Coding (AMBTC) are discussed and the proposed idea is incorporated in all the three methods. A bitrate of 2 bpp is achieved in the existing techniques. With the proposed method, a further reduction of .25 bpp is achieved. The results of the proposed method are compared with that of the normal Block Truncation Coding methods. The proposed idea works better in terms of both the PSNR and the bpp.

Secure Multimodal Mobile Authentication Using One Time Password

Abstract: Security concerns are on the rise in all areas such as banks, governmental applications, healthcare industry, military organization, educational institutions. Government organizations are setting standards, passing laws and forcing organizations and agencies to comply with these standards with non-compliance being met with wide-ranging consequences. There are several issues when it comes to security concerns in these numerous and varying industries with one common weak link being passwords. Most systems today rely on static passwords to verify the user’s identity. However, such passwords come with major management security concerns. Users tend to use easy-to-guess passwords, use the same password in multiple accounts, write the passwords or store them on their machines. Further more, hackers have the option of using many techniques to steal passwords such as shoulder surfing, snooping, sniffing, guessing. Several ‘proper’ strategies for using passwords have been proposed. Some of which are very difficult to use and others might not meet the company’s security concerns. Two factor authentication using devices such as tokens and ATM cards has been proposed to solve the password problem and have shown to be difficult to hack. Two-factor authentication (T-FA) or (2FA) is a system wherein two different factors are used in conjunction to authenticate.  The proposed method guarantees that authenticating to services, such as online Shopping, is done in a very secure manner. The system involves using a OTP (One Time Password) Algorithm generation of Dynamic password for second way of authentication.  One time password uses information sent as an SMS to the user as part of the login process.

Cloud Computing and Service Oriented Architecture

Abstract: Cloud Computing is used to allow efficient sharing of equipment and services. It facilitates to run the applications of an organization on a central data center rather than running them at themselves. This goal is achieved using an architectural approach of offered services on a network of consumers. Cloud is emerging as a phenomenon and it is happening at the confluence of several trends in the software industry. Service oriented architectures; virtualization and internet based application delivery have grown up to meet out the expectations of the end customers. Cloud is a major next step in this area. Cloud computing allows various tasks to be executed over a network using various services. Different types of services including infrastructure as a service, platform as a service, software as service have been proposed for cloud computing. Some of the benefits of cloud computing include reduced cost, scalability, better performance, service oriented and availability of easily and quickly movable application development. There are many types of cloud computing services available from various vendors. Computational cloud services provide on demand commuting resources that are scalable, inexpensive and can run any type of application. Storage cloud services allow all clients to store their large datasets on provider’s storage banks. Application cloud allows access too many services that a developer can integrate to build their application. The goal of this paper is to provide detailed understanding of cloud computing framework and its relation to service oriented architecture. The Paper also highlights the idea of virtualization, cloud computing services, some advantages and the challenges.
