Power System Stability Analysis Using Wide Area Measurement System
Advances in wide area measurement systems have transformed power system operation from simple visualization, state estimation, and post-mortem analysis tools to real-time protection and control at the systems level. Transient ...
Fault Location in Grid Connected Ungrounded PV Systems Using Wavelets
Solar photovoltaic (PV) power has become one of the major sources of renewable energy worldwide. This thesis develops a wavelet-based fault location method for ungrounded PV farms based on pattern recognition of the high ...
Power Allocation in Wireless Relay Networks
This thesis is mainly concerned with power allocation issues in wireless relay networks where a single or multiple relays assist transmission from a single or multiple sources to a destination. First, a network model with ...
An Evaluation of the Suitability of Commercially Available Sensors for Use in a Virtual Reality Prosthetic Arm Motion Tracking Device
The loss of a hand or arm is a devastating life event that results in many months of healing and challenging rehabilitation. Technology has allowed the development of an electronic replacement for a lost limb but similar ...
Channel Estimation in Coded Modulation Systems
With the outstanding performance of coded modulation techniques in fading channels, much research efforts have been carried out on the design of communication systems able to operate at low signal-to-noise ratios (SNRs). ...
Design and Implementation of a Radix-100 Division Unit
In this thesis, a novel radix-100 divider is designed and implemented. The proposed divider is 3% faster then the current decimal dividers.
An experimental and theoretical study of the dark current and x-ray sensitivity of amorphous selenium x-ray photoconductors
Recently, the world of diagnostic radiography has seen the integration of digital flat panel x-ray image detectors into x-ray imaging systems, replacing analog film screens. These flat panel x-ray imagers (FPXIs) have ...
Development of a Large-Dose, High-Resolution Dosimetry Technique for Microbeam Radiation Therapy using Samarium-Doped Glasses and Glass-Ceramics
Microbeam radiation therapy (MRT) is a potential cancer therapy technique that uses an intense X-ray beam produced by a synchrotron. In MRT, an array of microplanar beams, called a microbeam, is delivered to a tumour. The ...
Digital implementation of an upstream DOCSIS QAM modulator and channel emulator
The concept of cable television, originally called community antenna television (CATV), began in the 1940's. The information and services provided by cable operators have changed drastically since the early days. Cable ...
HIGH-PERFORMANCE PERIODIC ANTENNAS WITH HIGH ASPECT RATIO VERTICAL FEATURES AND LARGE INTERCELL CAPACITANCES FOR MICROWAVE APPLICATIONS
Modern communications systems are evolving rapidly to address the demand for data exchange, a fact which imposes stringent requirements on the design process of their RF and antenna front-ends. The most crucial pressure ...
