Paper Title:

Asset Localization in Industrial Wireless Sensor Networks based on Ultra Wideband

Abstract:  Real-time location systems (RTLS) help ensure that assets are in the right place at the right time. There are numerous possible applications afforded by tagging assets such as improving routing and multiple access control protocols in wireless sensors network which prolong its operational life time. Ultra Wideband (UWB) wireless technology offers greater resistance to multipath fading, interference, and potentially lowers power consumption. Therefore UWB technology inherently enables the accurate localization of assets. In this paper, localization method based on a passive Time difference of Arrival (TDOA) scheme using IEEE802.15.4a ”industrial environment”  channel model is implemented using Matlab and tested. A new proposed waveform based on Gaussian pulse is used for localization, which decreases the interference between the UWB and other signals, and decreases the probability of error (prb). The proposed localization scheme decreases the error between real asset location and estimated position at low level of signal to noise ratio (E/No).

Paper Title:

Data Aware Dynamic Low Power Reconfigurable FIR Filter Design

Abstract:   This  paper  aims for developing  a new architecture for finite impulse response (FIR) filter, which will reduce dynamic power consumption based on the concept of dynamic  filter order change. The dynamic  changing of the filter order  is based on the fact  that  FIR  filter  has  large  amplitude variations in  both  the input  sequence  and  impulse  response (filter  coefficients). Trade off between filter performance and dynamic power consumption presented in this  paper  suggests  that  a significant  reduction in the dynamic power can be achieved without much compromise  in the filter performance. The required area  overhead  is also much less when  compared   to  the  conventional  approach. The  power savings  of up  to 25 to 35%  can  be achieved  with  the  modified FIR  filter architecture presented in this paper.

Paper Title:

Effects of Level of Tillage on Soil Physical Properties of Benue River, Makurdi Flood Plains

Abstract:  A field experiment was conducted to determine the effects of different levels of soil tillage on soil physical properties of Benue River flood plains in Makurdi zone. The field was laid out in a randomized complete block design (RCBD) with four treatments and three replications. The treatments were ploughing and harrowing once (PH), ploughing and harrowing twice (PHH), ploughing and harrowing thrice (PHHH) and no – tillage (NT). A four – wheel drive Massey Ferguson tractor (MF 375 E), 3 – discs Massey Ferguson plough and 14 – discs offset Massey Ferguson harrow were used for the tillage operations. The soil properties studied were infiltration rate, bulk density, moisture content, particle size distribution and soil loss. The experiments were conducted during the cropping season from April to November, 2012. The total rainfall within the period was 928.7 mm. Atmospheric temperatures fluctuated between 32ºC and 39ºC and the relative humidity was between 70 % and 86 %. Results showed that infiltration rates were higher before tillage than after tillage with a mean of 23.8cm/hr. and 3.2cm/hr. before and after respectively. The soil moisture contents in the upper layer (0 – 6 cm) were higher after tillage than before tillage with percentage increase ranging between 55.6 – 87.5%. Conversely, the moisture contents at the lower layer (6 – 12 cm) were higher before tillage than after tillage with the decrease ranging between 64.1 – 77.1 %. Reason for the decrease was due to the ploughing and harrowing which mixes the soil of the drier top with the soil of the wetter lower layer. Bulk density decreases with soil tillage with mean values of 1.48 g/cm3 and 1.42 g/cm3 before and after tillage, respectively. Results of sieve analysis showed that the higher the number of harrowing, the more the values of soil particles that passed through 5 mm sieve and the less values of particles retained on 50 mm sieve. Soil loss was more with the higher number of harrowing.

Seismic Behavior of Multistorey Shear Wall Frame versus Braced Concrete Frames (IJRTE)

Abstract:   It is observed that there is a need the study of structural systems for R.C.C framed structure, which resist the lateral loads due to seismic effect.  Safety and minimum damage level of a structure could be the prime requirement of tall buildings. To meet these requirements, the structure should have adequate lateral strength, lateral stiffness and sufficient ductility. Among the various structural systems, shear wall frame or braced concrete frame could be a point of choice for designer.  Therefore, it attracts to review and observe the behavior of these structural systems under seismic effect. Hence, it is proposed to study the dynamic behavior of reinforced concrete frame with and without shear wall and concrete braced frame. The purpose of this study is to compare the seismic response of above structural systems. Axial forces and moments in members and floor displacements will be compared.

Extracting Precise Data by Preventing Discrimination in Data Mining

Abstract:    The concept of classification is one of the most popular data mining tasks. The result of classification depends critically on data quality. There are some negative social perceptions about data mining which include potential privacy invasion and discrimination. Discrimination refers to the data set which contain unwanted data items. Discrimination can be either direct or indirect. Direct discrimination occurs when decisions are made based on sensitive attributes. Indirect discrimination occurs when decisions are made based on non sensitive attributes. This project discusses how to clean training datasets and outsourced datasets in such a way that legitimate classification rules can still be extracted.

Minimizing Burst Transmission Error in WSN by Honeycomb Optimization

Abstract:     This paper proposes scheduling methods to reduce the burst transmission errors between the wireless nodes. Transmission errors are rectified by decreasing the chances of root fading. Best afford path is proposed to handle root fading and to decrease the transmission errors. This method overcomes the problem of network misbehavior that is not addressed in CNC but concentrates in NUM. We also use honey comb algorithm to extend the CNC initiated to the source node throughout the network for other nodes depending upon the network type and thus improving the mechanism when the size of network increases; scalability.

Optimisation of Cool Tub to Prevent Brain Damage in Infant

Abstract:      Neonatology is a branch of pediatrics that deals with the medical care of newborn infants. Neonatal Encephalopathy is a clinical and not an etiologic term that describes an abnormal non-behavioral state consisting of decreased level of consciousness and usually other signs of brain stem and/or motor dysfunction. Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy is a disorder caused due to birth asphyxia. Asphyxia means lack of oxygen. Therapeutic hypothermia has been shown to decrease the risk of brain injury in newborn. Brain hypothermia, is induced by cooling a baby to around 35°C for three days after birth. Some of the cooling methods are antipyretics, fans, ice packs, cold fluids, water filled blankets or garments, forced cold air and cool caps. Cool tub is the most prevalent technology. It is a tub designed to cool the brain of neonates with oxygen deprivation during birth in order to prevent brain damage. The cool tub has cooling unit, in which cooling is provided by cool pack placed in it, infant should placed within four hours of birth. The baby was placed in the tub for 72 hours after which the baby’s temperature is slowly raised again over the following four hours. The idea of the cool tub is to cool the brain soon after the injury to stop cell suicide in the brain. The aim of this work is to monitor the temperature of the baby and hence maintain the same by automatically cooling and re-warming the material inside the cap. This process is done using temperature transducer, microcontroller, cooling unit and a warming unit.

Modeling and Intelligent Control of Two-Tank Interacting Level Process

Abstract:  The control of liquid level in tanks and flow between tanks is a basic problem in the process industries. In vital industries such as petro-chemical industries, paper industries, water treatment industries have the interacting tanks which the processes of chemical or mixing treatment takes place in the process tanks. Hence, the level of fluid in the tanks and interaction between tanks must be controlled. It is essential for control system engineers to understand how interacting tanks control system works and how the level control problem is solved. The problem of level control in interacting tank processes are system dynamics and interacting characteristics. In interacting process dynamics of tank1 affects the dynamics of tank2 and vice versa because flow rate depends on the difference between the liquid levels. In this work, a real-time two-tank interacting level process is taken-up for study. The mathematical model of a two-tank interacting process is derived. The hydraulic resistances (R1 and R2) are obtained using Experimental data. The servo and regulatory responses are obtained with PI controller. To improve the performance of the closed loop a Fuzzy Logic Controller (FLC) is designed and implemented for a two-tank interacting process. The servo and regulatory responses are obtained with FLC. The performances of Fuzzy Logic Controller are compared with PI controller in simulation. The performance measures are tabulated. It is observed from the results that the FLC out performs with no overshoot, faster settling time, better set-point tracking and thereby producing minimum integral square error(ISE).

The Comparative Study of FPGA based FIR Filter Design Using Optimized Convolution Method and Overlap Save Method

Abstract:   This paper describes a comparative study of designing digital filter of long duration sequences. Here we have adopted the approach of block filtering scheme “overlap save method” and compare with the optimized linear convolution scheme for designing digital filter. We have implemented both methods in FPGA Spartan 3A starter kit, XC3S700A device.Implementing both algorithms in FPGA hardware platform reveals that there is a 67% area reduction and 70.6% increase in operating frequency in overlap save method compare to optimize convolution method. In addition the power utilization summary reveals that there is a 24.24% increased in the power utilization of overlap save method. Thus the experimental results shows that to design an area optimized , high speed digital filter  we should used overlap save method where as for a power efficient digital filter we should used optimized linear convolution method.

Analysis of Fiber Nonlinearities in WDM Fiber Optic Transmission System by Varying Different Parameters

Abstract:    Capacity of optical transmission system can be increased either by using the technique of wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) or by increasing the bit rate of transmission. But with the increased bit rates and launched optical powers the nonlinear optical effects increases. Ultra fast third order susceptibility is reason behind Non Linear Effects whose real part leads to Self Phase Modulation (SPM), Cross Phase Modulation (XPM) and Four Wave Mixing (FWM) and imaginary part contributes to Stimulated Raman Scattering (SRS). SPM converts optical power fluctuations into phase fluctuations in single channel which eventually degrades the signal. XPM causes interference by phase shifts which depend on intensity between two optical fields. This effect limits the input optical power and capacity of the system. Dominating effect of WDM system is FWM. SRS causes unwanted power tilt which reduces optical signal to noise ratio. Performance degradation and channel crosstalk of the system can be induced in multi channel systems by these nonlinearities. In this paper the effects of input power, bitrates, dispersion and various other parameters are observed on nonlinearities using OPTSIM 5.2 software. The results are shown through Quality Factor and Eye diagram.

Pehchanmail: IBE Based E-Token Authenticated Secure Email

Abstract:  Ubiquity and speed of email have made it increasingly effective to look in to the security aspect. Providing reliance over this medium has become an inevitable requirement and security has been a growing concern over the past few years. The average individual, who uses e-mail, naively believes that their e-mail is private and secure. The electronic world is filled with snoopers who can access all types of data over the network. In secure email and other secure communication, there is a major problem of key management. As the world goes digital, with more and more raw information about individuals available electronically, the need for security with hassle free key management increases. The emails of today are secured by encrypting the content on an external medium and sending this as an attachment over the mail. The paper discusses the implementation of providing security using any public identity information of the recipient and authenticating using cryptoki standard E-Token. Identity Based Encryption is a public-key cryptography which uses unique or exclusive data about the identity of an email client or a recipient to encrypt the data and later generates a public key corresponding to that unique/exclusive information. The unique information about the recipient can be his/her’s email address in congregation with his mobile number or Social Security number. All these become parameters to create the public key. Time Stamp can also be incorporated to above parameters to create the public key. IBE is subset of larger set ABE (Attribute based Encryption) were one can enable automatic encryption of messages based on the attributes one chooses. The message gets decrypted on the recipient system regardless of the operating system. There are other systems that provide specific security but are strongly tied to the mail servers and browsers. A browser-based method allows the recipient to decrypt and read the secure message.

Paper Title:

A New Preprocessing Approach for Mining Association Rule from Large Database   

Abstract:   As we know now a day’s internet plays vital role in serving the needs of the user's on web. We can search the information, we can order the items and can do many things online. Different options are available for this, but many times we don’t have time to go through all alternatives and decide the best one.  In such case a Web Page Recommendation System will be helpful to suggest the pages which are most relevant to your current search. The Server log files are generated as a result of an interaction between the client and the service provider on web. Server log file contains the massive hidden valuable information related to the visitors, if we mined this, it can be used for predicting the navigation behavior of the users. However the task of discovering frequent sequence patterns from the server log is challenging as it consist of huge data. Most of the time this data is incomplete and because of that it can’t be processed further for generating accurate knowledge. Proposed system focuses on adopting an intelligent technique that can provide personalized web service for accessing related web pages more efficiently and effectively. Proposed system uses two intelligent algorithms for predicting the user behavior's namely FP Growth and Éclat. These algorithms save the time and space problem of existing system. Further from the frequent pages pattern Direct and Indirect Association Rules are generated and based on that Ranking is provided to pages which will help recommendation system to recommend similar search pages. This paper focuses on new approach for preprocess web log data.

A Hybrid Simulated Annealing- Genetic Algorithm for Course Time Tabling Problem

Abstract:  Course timetabling problem (CTP) consists on assigning a set of courses into a limited group of timeslots.  Among the huge variety of algorithms proposed to solve it, Simulated Annealing (SA) is one with the best performance; even though not always find the optimal solution. Besides it is known that SA converges to a very good solution whether its parameters are correctly tuned. In this sense, how to improve SA performance is an open area; two general SA features require to be researched: 1) To improve its exploration capacity and 2) To develop confident tuning schemes. In this paper, a new hybrid algorithm named SA-GA is presented which it uses SA with Genetic Algorithms (GA). This hybridization uses a Markov tuning approach with a good exploration feature given by the genetic method in order to solve CTP. Also the mathematical CTP problem is presented and a several statistical significance testing method are applied.

Process Improvement of Centreless Grinding Machine

Abstract:   The Centerless grinding machine primarily facilitates the ease of grinding processes of bulk and big mechanical component’s which are difficult to axially fit and rotate on the centered grinding machine’s. The preceding and early developed grinding machines were majorly manually operated, which caused accuracy and precision deviations to the payload. This paper gives a detailed improvement’s of the former. A detailed study of the advanced machines and a comprehensive study in advanced process monitoring in centerless grinding technology are looked into. A collaborative study led to the following improvement’s which will be further discussed: Implementation of In Process Gauging, Implementation of  Flagging Unit for face cut, Implementation of Servo mechanism for Regulating Wheel Dresser, Implementation of Servo mechanism for Drive Feed. The study of improvement of the number of axis which were manually controlled and have been integrated with C.N.C Control processors have also been summarized. The merging of the above mentioned specific’s and implementation to the grinding machine  and the effect of these improvements have been studied.

Electronic Waste: Threats & Concerns of Disposal

Abstract:  The development of electronic industry and electronic & electrical equipments (EEE) has eased man’s life by automation at one end but has posed multiple threats at other end. The situation becomes critical when development alone is getting focus worldwide. Every product and its constituents which result in it have a life and stock. All efforts have to be made to preserve them and use in most optional ways. The situation when end of life of EEE products come we are left with two options, either to extend the life by reusing, recycling, extraction of constitutions and rebuilding or left with disposal options. The disposal of EEE can be result of accumulation of products from domestic market or from the exports from have ones in name of keeping their situation and environment safe. These disposable EEE have many toxic, hazardous substances which can be elemental or manmade. The manmade substances which are commonly known as organic substances are those who don’t get decomposed and even on burning leave traces and residues which persist in environment and make the world dirtier and hazardous. The study reveals that the preposition of degradation goes with industrialization, demographic preposition of areas concerned and primarily on non strictness/ absence of the regulatory & monitoring enforcement agencies. The situation has not gone to worse and if one takes stringent measures even now, the world still can be made / retained  safer to live in with sustained development keeping in mind that madness for automation is not the need of hour but existence and multiple threats and concerns which are griping us are the main concerns. The banned substances use in product manufacturing must be stopped. Use of environment friendly constituents and permitted components will give rise to safe products. The initiatives of buy back , extended producers responsibility must be exercised to maximum so that disposal is done in safe and highly technical manner in controlled and sustained environment causing very less or even no harm. The formal sectors role has to be highlighted and encouraged. General awareness among participants and public for the possible threats and concerns must be widely circulated.

Data Leakage Detection

Abstract:   A data distributor has given sensitive data to  a set of supposedly trusted agents (third parties). If the data distributed to third parties is found in a public/private domain then finding the guilty party is a nontrivial task to distributor. Traditionally, this leakage of data is handled by water marking technique which requires modification of data. To overcome the disadvantages of using watermark [2], data allocation strategies are used to improve the probability of identifying guilty third parties. In this project, we implement and analyze a guilt model that detects the agents using allocation strategies without modifying the original data. The guilty agent is one who leaks a portion of distributed data. The idea is to distribute the data intelligently to agents based on sample data request and explicit data request in order to improve the chance of detecting the guilty agents. The algorithms implemented using fake objects will improve the distributor chance of detecting guilty agents. It is observed that by minimizing the sum objective the chance of detecting guilty agents will increase. We also developed a framework for generating fake objects.

Paper Title:

Robust PID Tuning of Heat Exchanger System Using Swarm Optimization Method

Abstract:    Though there are numerous tuning methods available for PID controller, most of the time the controller is tuned using trial and error method. The trial and error based tuning of PID controller leads to deterioration in control performance. One of the solution of trial and error based tuning is to either find the optimal tuning parameters using any of the tuning rule or find the optimal tuning parameters using any of the optimization algorithms. There are several evolutionary and swarm intelligence based optimization techniques available in literature. This paper finds the optimal tuning parameter using particle swarm optimization (PSO) and implements the results in a heat exchanger control problem to validate the results.

Cyclostationary Based Spectrum Sensing in Cognitive Radio: Windowing Approach

Abstract:   A key challenge in operating cognitive radios (CRs) in a self-organizing (ad hoc) network is how to adaptively and efficiently allocate transmission powers and spectrum among CRs according to the surrounding environment.  The growing demand of wireless applications has put a lot of constraints on the usage of available radio spectrum which is limited and precious resource. However, a fixed spectrum assignment has lead to under utilisation of spectrum as a great portion of licensed spectrum is not effectively utilised. Cognitive radio is a promising technology which provides a novel way to improve utilisation efficiency of available electromagnetic spectrum. Spectrum sensing helps to detect the spectrum holes (underutilised bands of the spectrum) providing high spectral resolution capability. In this paper cyclostationary feature based spectrum sensing technique is discussed along with the implementation of different window techniques. Cyclostationary feature can be used for spectrum sensing in a very low SNR environment.

Paper Title:

Cruise Control of Automobiles

Abstract:    Control of automotive vehicles and engines is a relatively new field in automatic control. Some current applications for engine control are described. Future nonlinear and time-varying automotive systems will require the development of more advanced control schemes. Representative examples for plant modeling, parameter and state estimation, and adaptive control are presented. Therefore, in this thesis the approach of using such additional communicated information from either the second predecessor or the platoon leader is combined with the use of PLC as control method. The goal is to investigate whether any of these two configurations give an increase in performance compared with similar configurations with PLC as control method and compared with a more basic configuration that uses just the direct predecessor’s state information with either PLC.  Also, the possibly added value of using communicated predicted states, in addition to current states, with PLC is investigated. The CRUISE CONTROL controllers are designed to control the throttle, the brakes, and the gears, subject to operational constraints on acceleration, velocity, and vehicle-to-vehicle distance. The PLC- based CRUISE CONTROL controller contains a proportional feedback of the errors in velocity, position, and acceleration, combined with an automatic transmission scheme, and the control input is restricted at time instants at which a constraint is (almost) violated. The PLC-based CRUISE CONTROL controller at each time step minimizes the expected errors in position and velocity and the corresponding input variation.

Minimum Cost Design of PSC Post-Tensioned I-Girder for Short to Medium Span Bridges

Abstract:  Post-tensioned simply supported pre-stressed concrete (PC) I-girder bridges are widely used bridge system for short to medium span (20m to 50m) highway bridges due to its moderate self -weight, structural efficiency, ease of fabrication, low maintenance etc. In order to compete with steel bridge systems, the design of PC I-girder Bridge system must lead to the most economical use of materials. In this study, minimum cost design approach of a post-tensioned PC I-girder is presented. The objective is to minimize the total cost in the design process of the bridge system considering the cost of materials. For a particular girder span and bridge width, the design variables considered for the cost minimization of the I-girder, are top flange width, girder depth, bottom flange thickness, number of cables i.e. X1, X2, X3, X4 respectively. Design constraints for the optimization are considered according to AASHTO (American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials), IS: 1343-1980 and Geometrical design requirements. The optimization problem is solved by having a combination of continuous, discrete and integer sets of design variables and multiple local minima. For An optimization purpose Matlab Software with SUMT (Sequential Unconstrained Minimization Technique) is used that is capable of locating directly with high probability the minimum design variables. The proposed cost optimization approach is validated which leads to a considerable cost saving while resulting in feasible design.

Development of Actuator Control Strategy for DC Motor Controlled Automated Manual Transmission (AMT)

Abstract:  An Actuator control strategy for Automated manual transmission (AMT) which uses electro mechanical Dc motor controlled linear actuators is presented in this paper. The actuator control strategy decides the operation of actuators to achieve the desired gear shift as per command of Transmission Control Unit (TCU). The gear shifting control strategy decides on which gear to be chosen whereas the actuator control strategy decides how to achieve the gear selection by controlling the actuators. The actuator control strategy for vehicle Startup and running conditions are described with the help of algorithms. The developed actuator control strategy was implemented in software in loop analysis by using Matlab / Simulink based AMT driveline model in vehicle simulator called ADVISOR. The simulation result evaluates the developed actuator control strategy in terms of improved efficiency as compared to manual transmission (MT) for same drive cycle.

Approaches for Word Sense Disambiguation –A Survey

Abstract:    Word sense disambiguation is a technique in the field of natural language processing where the main task is to find the correct sense in which a word occurs in a particular context. It is found to be of vital help to applications such as question answering, machine translation, text summarization, text classification, information retrieval etc. This has resulted in excessive interest in approaches based on machine learning which performs classification of word senses automatically. The main motivation behind word sense disambiguation is to allow the users to make ample use of the available technologies because ambiguities present in any language provide great difficulty in the use of information technology as words in human language that occur in a particular context can be interpreted in more than one way depending on the context. In this paper we put forward a survey of supervised, unsupervised and knowledge based approaches and algorithms available in word sense disambiguation (WSD).

Paper Title:

Effect of Nitrogen on Low Temperature Nitrided Stainless Steels for Steam Turbine Blades

Abstract:     In the last few years, an increasing interest has been taken in AISI 300 series austenitic stainless steels for use in industrial applications. In these steels nickel is partly replaced by other austenite stabilizing elements like manganese, chromium, nitrogen. However, their chromium content is usually lower than that of largely used Fe-Cr-Ni based other grade of stainless steels, so that their corrosion resistance may be lower.  For these AISI 300 series of stainless steels, low temperature nitriding treatments have been successfully employed to increase the corrosion resistance, due to the formation of modified surface layers consisting of chromium-nickel layers.  In this research, a low nickel AISI 316LN austenitic stainless steels was subjected to gas nitriding treatments in the range of 450-5500C. The applications was found to be in steam turbine blades. The specimens were characterized by optical microscope results and scanning microscope results. The treatments produce modified surface layers having a double layer structure. When the treatments are carried out at these temperatures, the outer layer was modified by iron chromium nitrides, and their amount increases as the treatment time goes higher.

Paper Title:

Effect of Nitrogen on Stainless Steel Material at Low Temperature Salt Bath Solution Applicable to Ship Propeller Blades

Abstract:      Energetic nitrogen implantation into 316LN stainless steels or nickel-chromium alloys leads to the formation of a very hard and wear resistant surface layer with an expanded lattice. Austenitic stainless steels can be hardened at temperatures around 450-5500C using energetic nitrogen into ion implantation while retaining the corrosion resistance. The expanded austenite is characterized by a concentration dependent diffusion coefficient, strongly increasing at higher nitrogen concentrations. A comparison of the phase formation under identical process conditions at 4500C were nitrided and investigated at different time parameters. Low temperature salt bath nitriding of austenitic stainless steels can produce a specified nitrided layer with high hardness and good corrosion resistance. In this study, various austenitic stainless steel specimens were low temperature salt bath nitrided. As the application goes behind the ship propeller blades, these blades are always under salt waters. Due to this, these blades get corrode easily and loss its life in a very short period of time. In order to improve the corrosion resistance and wear resistance of these blades, salt bath  nitriding is done on the blades  and the effect of nitrogen on the specimens were investigated by various analyzing techniques using an optical microscope, scanning electron microscope analysis. Wear test were carried out by a pin on disc machine. The thickness of the nitrided layers increased with an increase in the process temperature, and the thickness of the layer formed on AISI 316LN steel is thickest in all substrate steels. The wear resistance of every stainless steel was obviously improved by nitriding treatment.

Data Aware Dynamic Low Power Reconfigurable FIR Filter Design

Abstract:   This  paper  aims for developing  a new architecture for finite impulse response (FIR) filter, which will reduce dynamic power consumption based on the concept of dynamic  filter order change. The dynamic  changing of the filter order  is based on the fact  that  FIR  filter  has  large  amplitude variations in  both  the input  sequence  and  impulse  response (filter  coefficients). Trade off between filter performance and dynamic power consumption presented in this  paper  suggests  that  a significant  reduction in the dynamic power can be achieved without much compromise  in the filter performance. The required area  overhead  is also much less when  compared   to  the  conventional  approach. The  power savings  of up  to 25 to 35%  can  be achieved  with  the  modified FIR  filter architecture presented in this paper.

Balancing Double Inverted Pendulum on A cart by Linearization Technique

Abstract:    Double Inverted Pendulum on a cart (DIPC) is a classic problem in dynamics and control theory and is widely used in control laboratories to demonstrate the effectiveness of control systems as well as a benchmark for testing control algorithms.  It is suitable to investigate and verify different control methods for dynamic systems with higher order nonlinearities. A controller is proposed to swing a double inverted pendulum to an unstable upright inverted position and stabilize around the point by using Linear Quadratic Regulator (LQR) technique. Linearization form of nonlinear system is obtained by Jacobian with proper cost function and the modeling of it is accomplished with the help of Euler – Lagrangian equation derived by specifying Lagrangian, difference between kinetic and potential energy of DIPC. Simulation results are retrieved by MATLAB.
