Paper Title:

Performance Optimization of Logic Circuits based on Hybrid CMOS and CNFET Design

Abstract: There is a pressing need to explore circuit design ideas in new emerging technologies in deep-submicron in order to exploit their full potential during the early stages of their development. Carbon nanotube (CNT) based technology has significant potential to replace silicon technology sometimes in the future. Single-walled carbon nanotubes are investigated for applications in logic and sensing circuits due to their superior transport properties. CMOS (complementary metal oxide semiconductor) technology is better in switching speed specially for NMOS. In this work we take advantage of the high mobility transport in p-type CNTFETs and combine them with high-performance conventional n-type MOSFETs, thereby achieving the best overall performance in a hybrid configuration. This paper presents a detailed simulation based assessment of circuit performance of this technology and compares it with 32nm CMOS and 32nm CNFET technologies. It is shown that the performance of the hybrid PCNFET-NMOS configuration is better than that of the pure CMOS in terms of noise margin (32.8% higher) and power consumption (60% lower) and therefore (2.5% lower )in PDP. The performance of PCNFET-NMOS is the same of pure CNFET for noise margin, 65% lower in power consumption and 2% lower in PDP. Also this integration of a carbon nanotube on an underlying CMOS circuit achieves a large saving in area that is amenable to future nanoscale device integration.

Paper Title:

Advance NOC Router with LOW Latancy & Low Power Consumption by Wormhole Switching

Abstract:  Network on Chip (NoC) is an approach to designing communication subsystem between intelligent property (IP) cores in a system on chip (SoC). Packet switched networks are being proposed as a global communication architecture for future system-on-chip (SoC) designs. In this project, we propose a design with low latency and low power consumption and implement a wormhole router supporting multicast for Network-on-chip. Wormhole routing is a network flow control mechanism which decomposes a packet into smaller flits and delivers the flits in a pipelined fashion. It has good performance and small buffering requirements. We proposed different power consumption with different frequency with different temperature.

Dissimilar Metal Welding Of AISI 4130 Steel To 18% NI Mararing Steel

Abstract: Maraging steels are ultra-high strength and high toughness steels used in the rocket motor casing, leaf springs, landing gears etc. They obtain their strength and toughness from precipitation hardening. The strength of AISI 4130 steels is obtained by austenizing followed by quenching and tempering. They obtain their strength from martensite phase transformation. As the heat treatment for the two steels are different due to different hardening mechanisms, an optimum heat treatment needs to be developed to obtain maximum strength for the dissimilar welding of this two materials. Weldments are often made from dissimilar metals in order to satisfy different requirements for performance. A successful weld between dissimilar metals is that it possesses sufficient tensile strength and ductility so that the joint will not fail. In the present work, 18%Ni (250) maraging steel was joined to AISI 4130 low alloy steel by TIG welding with W2 maraging steel filler wire. These dissimilar welds were realized with two different material conditions. The first condition is welding of solutionised maraging steel to hardened and tempered AISI 4130 steel. The second condition is welding of aged maraging steel to hardened and tempered AISI 4130 steel. The dissimilar welds we subjected to non-destructive testing i.e. X-ray radiography and subsequently subjected to different post weld heat treatment cycles depending on the initial material condition. The joints were offered for microstructure and mechanical property evaluations such as ultimate tensile strength, yield strength and % elongation. The model of the specimen was created using the CATIA software. The model was meshed using software ABAQUS. Boundary conditions were given on the finite element model through ABAQUS.

Investigation on Advanced Encryption Standard Techniques Using SMART Copyback for Data

Abstract:  Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) is a symmetric block cipher that is intended to replace DES as the approved standard for a wide range of applications. Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) is the current standard for secret key encryption. NIST selected Rijndael as the proposed AES algorithm. The two researchers who developed and submitted Rijndael for the AES are both cryptographers from Belgium: Dr. Joan Daemen and Dr. Vincent Rijmen. Ultimately the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS PUB 197) used a standardized version of the algorithm called Rijndael for the Advanced Encryption Standard. The algorithm uses a combination of Exclusive-OR operations (XOR), octet substitution with an S-box, row and column rotations, and a MixColumn. It was successful because it was easy to implement and could run in a reasonable amount of time on a regular computer. In this paper we Investigate on Advanced Encryption Standard Techniques with some applications like Military, finance sector and maintain the research data for long time without fail. Finally these data could be store for long time with help of Self Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology (SMART) Copyback technique.

Computation of the Optimal Value of Operating Parameters in a Reactor – Heat Exchanger System by Differential Evolution Techniques

Abstract: In this research work, the modern soft computing technique of Differential Evolution (DE) algorithm is considered to determine global optimal values of the operating parameters in a Reactor -Heat Exchanger (RHE) system. In addition, a penalty term is incorporated in the objective function and thereby computing annual cost of the RHE system in terms of operating and investment costs. A comparative study is also made with Genetic Algorithm (GA) in RHE system. Results clearly indicate the supremacy of DE for global optimization of operating parameters in RHE system. A convergence test is performed and reported here.

Paper Title:

Design and Comparative analysis of a Metamaterial included Slotted Patch Antenna with a Metamaterial Cover over Patch

Abstract: A metamaterial is introduced into the cover of a patch antenna and its band structure is analyzed. The metamaterial cover with correct selection of the working frequency increases the patch antenna’s directivity. Based on the methodology, optimization of structure is proposed for the application of metamaterials as antenna substrate to primarily enhance directivity by minimizing its refractive index. The experimental results are presented thoroughly and compared with the analytic calculations. This paper aims to review and critically discuss the comparision of a metamaterial included patch and metamaterial cover over the patch. An analytical method is used to predict the features of the simulation results, implying that within a certain frequency range, comparision can be made between these two models. The S-parameters as a performance matrix are obtained from antenna simulations carried on CADFEKO Silverlite version 5.5. Simulations have been carried out for different shapes of microstrip patch antenna in the microwave regime. © 2010 ISRO – Indian Space Research Organisation

Runoff Estimation for Darewadi Watershed using RS and GIS

Abstract: An accurate understanding of the hydrological behavior of a watershed is important for effective management. Runoff is the most basic and important data needed when planning water control strategies/ practices, such as, waterways, storage facilities or erosion control structures. The most popular method used for runoff estimation is SCS runoff curve number method. In the present study Darewadi watershed was taken as case study for highlighting the role of GIS and RS in estimation of runoff from the watershed by SCS curve number method using OVERLAY techniques. 20 years daily rainfall data was acquired from Indian Metrological Department (IMD), Pune. The study reveals that the SCS-CN model can be used to estimate surface runoff depth when adequate hydrological information is not available.

A Critical Review on Photovoltaic Base Maximum Power Generation System

Abstract:  This paper focuses on the review of solar systems, converters and control techniques of MPPT with power generation. Photovoltaic cells provide an additional method of acquiring energy, converting sunlight directly into electricity through the use of semiconductors. Effective photovoltaic implementation is reviewed, focusing on semiconductor properties and overall photovoltaic system configuration. Solid-state switch-mode converters have reached a matured level for improving power quality reduced total harmonic distortion and precisely regulated dc output by Buck, Boost, Buck -Boost & Cuck regulators and also about the multilevel inverter topology. This paper deals with a comprehensive review of power converters and inverters unit. The photovoltaic generators have a nonlinear V-I characteristics and maximum power points which vary with the illumination level and temperature. Using maximum power point tracker (MPPT) with the intermediate converter can increase the system efficiency by matching the PV systems to the load. This paper presents a maximum power point tracker based on different control schemes for a single-phase or three-phase and multilevel inverter connected to the utility grid.

Paper Title:

Experimental Investigation on LHR Extended Expansion DI Diesel Engine Emission Controlling Injection Timing

Abstract: Fossil fuels are depleting rapidly because of incremental consumption rate due to population growth and necessary comforts on par with civilization. In this connection, the conventional fuels especially petrol and diesel for internal combustion engines, are getting exhausted at an alarming rate. In order to conserve the fossil fuels or to plan for survival of technology in future it is essential to plan for alternate fuels. Further, these fossil fuels cause serious environmental problems as they release toxic gases into the atmosphere at high temperatures and concentrations. Some of the pollutants released by the internal combustion engines are HC, CO, NOx, smoke and particulate matter. The predicted global energy consumptions are double by 2030 and quadruple by 2100. In view of this, an attempt is made to study a Low Heat Rejection (LHR) concept as one of the measures. The ignition delay will vary as the injection timing of the engine is varied. The variation in the injection timing will be effecting the performance and exhaust emissions of the engine strongly. The experimental results of the effects of variation in injection timings on the emission of LHR extended expansion engine is presented and analyzed.

Transformer Winding Insulation Measurement Using Phase Difference Technique

Abstract:  This paper describes the condition monitoring of Transformer winding. Condition Monitoring means capable to predict health condition of the electrical machine. A successful continuous condition monitoring scheme for electrical machines offers significant advantages, since it would be capable of providing adequate warning of failures of a variety of its components and would enable maintenance to be scheduled most effectively. In diagnosing faults in electrical machines, research has focused on parameters such as, insulation, capacitance, temperature, phase angle etc. In this paper a test procedure has been establish to determine the phase difference accurately. Based on this phase difference, the capacitance of the transformer winding has been calculated. The value of the capacitance basically indicates the insulation of the transformer winding. Accelerated life testing arrangement conducted to transformer winding, from this accelerated life test, approximate prediction of life of insulating material has been analysed. As the paper describes the continuous monitoring of transformer winding, so the ageing and the winding deterioration of transformer can be detected.

Simulation and Modeling Analysis in Manufacturing   Process

Abstract:   In the modern world class manufacturing it is of prime importance for modern management to make crucial decisions quickly and accurately to stand at the global competitive cutting edge. In many real life situations the main interest concern the prediction of how a system will perform under various conditions of change in the environment as well as with in the system. Experimenting on real system is not always feasible, so it is carried on some representative unit of the system. This unit is called a model and the process modeling. Simulation is a technique of systems modeling and analysis that involves mathematical models of a dynamic nature which are solved numerically. Simulation is a powerful and scientific method, which is widely, applied methodology for studying the behaviour of a variety of systems in order to develop solutions to problems in their design and operation. An overview of simulation modeling and analysis is recent advancements in this field, recommendations for selecting right simulation software, related technologies like artificial intelligence techniques, how they are integrated with computer simulation modeling and benefits due to development of these hybrid technologies.Computer simulation is one of the popular experimental investigation techniques as it involved reduced costs, time and risks compared to experimenting decision alternatives with real world system in real time. In the computer simulation, developing the models of the real systems on the computer has carried out experimentation. The use of simulation mathematical models has been proposed to reduce the computer costs of simulation while making use of its potential of predicting the performance of complex system..

Low Power MAC Unit for DSP Processor

Abstract:    Power dissipation is one of the most important design objectives in integrated circuit, after speed. Digital signal processing (DSP) circuits whose main building block is a Multiplier-Accumulator (MAC) unit. High speed and low power MAC unit is desirable for any DSP processor. This is because speed and throughput rate are always the concerns of DSP system. This paper explores the design of low power MAC unit with block enable technique to reduce power dissipation. The MAC unit is implemented using 130-nm CMOS process technology. The whole MAC chip is operated at 200 MHz with1.5V supply voltage. The result analysis shows that the power consumption is reduced by using block enable technique.

Color Transformation of Images for the Color Blind Viewers using Bacteria Foraging Optimization Technique

Abstract: Color Transformation of image is modify the color of image in the another one. Till yet many researchers did work in this field to enhance images for the people suffering from color blindness and to enhance image contrast. Many methods are used to transfer the color of image and color blind viewers are enhancing the image contrast and differentiate those colors. These methods Linear Color Transformation PSO, daltonization are used and make a optimize color table that are taking more time .Here we are going to propose the BFO technique and optimize color table with BFO for the given number of generations. Using BFO makes color transform table more accurately rather than the normal morphological and mathematical based approaches and reduce the processing time.

Performance Evaluation of WLAN Channel Utilization of TXOP-HCCA for Real-time Applications

Abstract:  This paper discusses the characteristics of Transmission Opportunity Hybrid Coordination Function Controlled Channel Access (TXOP-HCCA) for real-time application. This works presents the evaluation of TXOP duration limits based on IEEE 802.11e standard, and IEEE 802.11g for physical layer of ERP-OFDM and DSSS-OFDM technologies. HCCA 802.11e stated that superframe consists of Contention Free Period (CFP) and Contention Period (CP). In this work we utilized the CFP to transmit TXOP with different traffic rates for real time packet transmission. This TXOP consists of the packets with different payload and packet numbers. We optimize the payload to achieve maximum local TXOP. We present the detailed analysis of characteristics of TXOP-HCCA which is based on detailed logical explanation of tracing the superframe values. The evaluation stage is conducted in uniform traffic rate. Subsequently we evaluate the combined traffic rates by varying the packet’s payload and TXOP. Knapsack optimization method has been used to achieve the optimum TXOP in combined traffic rate. The simulation result shows that the optimum CFP utilization value is 88.12 %.

Recognition of the Tonal Words of BODO Language

Abstract:   The performance of a state-of-art speech recognition system degrades considerably when the recognizers are used to recognize the tonal words. This is due to the fact that at the time of developing those recognizers, the tonal property has not been considered.Bodo is a tonal language like other Sino-Tibetan languages. In this paper we consider how current models can be modified to recognize the tonal words. Two approaches have been investigated in this paper. In the first approach attempt has been made to develop a feature level solution to the problem of tonal word recognition. In the second approach, a model level solution has been suggested. Experiments were carried out to find the relative merits and demerits of both the methods.

Studies on Permeability of Self-Healing Built-In Bacteria Concrete

Abstract:    Permeability is the most crucial internal factor in concrete durability. The durability of a concrete is closely related to its permeability. The permeability dictates the rate at which aggressive agents can penetrate to attack the concrete and the steel reinforcement. Water penetrability is defined as the degree to which a material permits the transport gases, liquids or ionic species through it. Water can be harmful for concrete, because of its ability to leach calcium hydroxide from the cement paste, to carry harmful dissolved species such as chlorides or acids into the concrete, to form ice in large pores in the paste, and to cause leaching of compounds from the concrete. Water absorption, sorptivity and water permeability measurement are some methods to determine the water penetrability of concrete. A triaxial cell permeability apparatus and method for determining water permeability of concrete are presented in this paper. This method utilizes Darcy’s Law for steady flow so as to relate water permeability to the rate of water flow under a pressure head. The major drawbacks commonly encountered in triaxial cell permeability apparatus are addressed by evaluating the water permeability as per as per German standard DIN 1048(Part 5):1991 specifications and MORT&H (Ministry of Road Transport & Highways) 4th Revision specifications. Test results indicated that bacterial concrete is highly impermeable than normal concrete. Permeability measurement techniques and durability modeling are based on the Darcy equation for permeability based on measurement of flow rate, and the Valetta equation for permeability based on measurement of penetration depth and time. Bacteria built-in concrete works on the phenomenon of microbiologically induced calcite precipitation. Calcite crystals formed, due to microbial activities of bacteria Bacillus subtilus JC3, seals the cracks and pores in concrete and enhances the strength and durability of concrete by making concrete impermeable to transport different fluids or gases, like water, chlorides, sulfates or oxygen.

FPGA Based Cost Efficient Fir Filter Using Factored CSD Technique

Abstract: In this paper, an FPGA based area and power efficient FIR filter for wireless communication systems is presented. The implementation is based on Factored Canonic signed digit (FCSD) which eliminates the use of embedded multipliers. The proposed FIR filter has been implemented using Equiripple Symmetric structure on an FPGA.  The developed FIR filter has been optimized in terms of MAC operation using symmetric structure.  The symmetric structure requires less hardware for implementation as compared to transposed structure and also reduces hardware complexity.  The performance of both symmetric and transposed structure is almost same but implementation cost varies significantly. A 20 tap FIR filter has been designed and simulated using 16 bit input and output precision with the help of Matlab. Factored Canonic signed digit (FCSD) approach is used to implement an FIR Filter taking optimal advantage of the look up table structure of FPGA. The behavioural simulation of proposed VHDL model has been performed using Modelsim simulator. The simulated model has been synthesized using Xilinx synthesis tool (XST) on Virtex 2 based xc2v3000-4ff1152 target FPGA device. The results show that symmetric FIR filter require 52.3 % less hardware as compare to transposed FIR structure. The developed symmetric FIR structure can operated at a maximum frequency of 45 MHz by consuming 6% slices, 2% flip flops and 5% Look up tables (LUTs) to provide cost effective solution for Digital Signal Processing Applications.

Paper Title:

Thermodynamic Modelling for Performance Analysis of Compression Ignition Engine Fuelled With Biodiesel and its Blends With Diesel

Abstract: In this work, computer simulation framework for compression ignition engine cycle simulation is developed and engine performance is predicted. Double wiebe’s function is used to model the rate of heat release due to combustion to predict heat released during premixed as well as diffusive phase of combustion. Effect of convective heat transfer and variation in specific heat of test fuels are also considered during development of model. Suitable correlations are established between adjustable parameters of wiebe’s function, relative air-fuel ratio and engine operating conditions, such that the simulated heat release profile matches closely with experimental results. The simulation model is used to analyze the performance, combustion and emission characteristics of single cylinder 3.5 kW rated power diesel engine fuelled with Diesel (D0), Palm Oil Methyl Ester (POME) and POME-diesel blends. The model validation is done by comparing the predicted parameters like brake thermal efficiency and in-cylinder pressure with experimental results and are found in closer approximation. The model is also used to predict net heat release rate, exhaust gas temperature, NOx and soot.

Design and Analysis of High Performance Double Edge Triggered D-Flip Flop

Abstract:  The power consumption of a system is a crucial parameter in modern VLSI circuits especially for low power applications. This paper proposed a new Double Edge Triggered D-Flip Flop (DETFF) which is suitable for low power applications. The proposed DETFF is having less number of clocked transistors than existing designs. The proposed DETFF is simulated with different clock frequencies ranging from 1MHz to 2GHz. Simulation results show lowest average power and least delay than existing designs. Further, the average power and the PDP are improved by 77.23% and 89.11% when compared with existing design respectively, which claims that proposed design is suitable for low power and high performance applications.

Isolation, Spectral Characterization, Thermal Efficiency and Microbial Evaluation Studies on Indian Rubber (Hevea Brasiliensis) Seed Oil

Abstract:   Hevea brasiliensis rubber seeds were collected and were extracted by using n-hexane as the solvent in the Soxhlet Extractor. The extracted semi drying oil was characterized by various physio-chemical and thermal properties. Fatty acid composition of the lipid was investigated using gas chromatography techniques. Vibrational studies of the oil show that the characteristic strong absorption at 1741 and 1644cm-1 for –C=O and –C=C– groups respectively. Both the 1H NMR and 13C NMR spectral studies indicate that the presences of triacylglycerol groups were saturated as well as unsaturated in nature. Photo pyroelectric technique (PPE) was used for thermal characterization of the extracted oil. The effect of the fuels on engine components and exhaust gas emissions such as total hydrocarbon, carbon monoxide, and smoke and brake specific fuel consumption were also investigated. Antimicrobial activity was compared with the standard control drug of chloramphenicol at a concentration of 10 μg/ml at 30, 37 and 42 oC.

Area Efficient Interpolator Using Half-Band Symmetric Structure

Abstract:  In this paper a cost effective Interpolator has been designed and simulated. An area efficient method has been presented to implement cost effective interpolator for wireless communication systems. Interpolator is particularly useful for smoothing signals such as sinusoids or baseband I/Q waveforms. For these signals, interpolation filter is used to accurately produce new samples of the waveform without reducing signal quality. In this paper three structures for interpolator has been used namely Direct Form FIR Polyphase, Nyquist Filter and Half-Band Low pass Filter. The developed interpolator has been compared for performance and implementation cost using Mat Lab. The results show that the performance of all the designs is almost similar, but cost variation is very high. The Half-Band structure shows 52% of reduction in multipliers as compared to Direct Form FIR Polyphase structure. The Half-Band structure is further implemented in Transposed Structure and Symmetric Structure. The Half-Band symmetric structure shows 27% reduction in multipliers as compared to Direct Form FIR Polyphase, Nyquist Filter and Half-Band Low pass Filter structure to provide cost effective solution for wireless applications.

Analyzing Data Collection Strategies Using Mobile Sink

Abstract:  One of the most important task of Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is data collection . In sensor network the sensors are sensing the information and will be collected by the sink node with multi hoping. In such a scenario the energy is consumed by the node is more. In recent years the researchers are focusing on how to minimize the energy of the node and how it will help to improve the life of the node. One of the idea to do this is minimize the hop. The proposed framework is maximizing the lifetime of the wireless sensor networks (WSNs) by using a mobile sink. Proposed work is having the cluster with cluster head. The mobile sink moves towards the cluster head only upon the occurrence of an event .The cluster head is collecting the data from the sensor node and storing the same. Once the data is available to the cluster head, head will inform to the Mobile Sink. The Mobile Sink will move to respective position of the cluster head and data will be collected by Mobile sink.

Arithmetic and Logic Unit Designing Using Reversible Logic Gate

Abstract:   Owing to its unique technique of One-to-One Mapping between the inputs and the corresponding outputs, the ReversibleLogicGates are now finding profound as well as promising applications in emerging growing paradigms such as Quantum Computing, Quantum Dot Cellular Automata, Optical Computing, Digital Signal Processing, Low Power CMOS Design, Nanotechnology etc. The ReversibleLogic has received great attention in the past recent years due to its ability in reducing the power dissipation, the major concern in digital designing. To generate a useful gate function the ReversibleGates require constant inputs, called Ancillary Inputs, and some additional unused outputs, called Garbage Outputs, in order to maintain the reversibility of the digital circuits. The paper presents a novel design of different Arithmetic and Logic Units such as Half Adder, Half Subtracter and 1-Bit Comparator, using the existing ReversibleGates and the proposed new ReversibleCNOT, BJN, and PeresGates.

Comparative Study between Wireless Regional Area Network (IEEE Standard 802.22) and WiMAX and Coverage Planning of a Wireless Regional Area Network Using Cognitive Radio Technology

Abstract:    The first worldwide application of cognitive radio (CR) networks in unlicensed television broadcast bands is IEEE 802.22 wireless regional area network (WRAN). This paper introduces the implementation of IEEE 802.22 Wireless Regional Area Network (WRAN) for broadband Internet access in sub-urban areas. We have  investigated how CR through dynamic spectrum access facilitates the efficient use of underutilized spectrum (white spaces). To do this, we have analyzed a coverage planning for WRAN and compared it with a traditional wireless communication standard, IEEE standard 802.16e. We have also observed the comparison for different modulation schemes and shown the results in graphical form.

Artificial Neural Network, Decision Tree and Statistical Techniques Applied for Designing and Developing E-mail Classifier

Abstract:     Due to increased bandwidth and strong infrastructure available for accessing internet, internet users are growing rapidly. Internet users frequently use e-mail for fast data communication of audio, vedio and textual data but at the same time they are facing problem due to unwanted e-mail known as spam e-mail. In order to filter this unwanted e-mail, a classifier must be placed in the network or in computer. In this paper three different types of technique: Artificial Neural Network (ANN), Decision tree and statistical technique are explored for designing and developing e-mail classifier. Experimental work has been performed on e-mail data set  obtained from UCI repository site and is partitioned into three different partitions to find out best suitable partition to be applied for various model. A suitable ensemble model is chosen based on various error measures calculated after training and testing the models. A final ensemble model is measured in terms of accuracy, precision, recall, F-measure and Gain Chart. Highest accuracy of 94.35%  is obtained in case of ensemble of C5.0 and SVM with 60%-40% (training – testing) partition.
