Measurement and verification baseline development and service level adjustments for fridge plant systems
In this article the authors provide an overview of a fridge plant system and discuss the data requirements and data selection for baseline development. The baseline development is divided into two scenarios: 1) where ...
The use of disruptive information technologies for competitive advantage in the banking sector of South Africa.
(Hempstead, NY : International Business Information Management Association (IBIMA), 2009)
The main focus of this paper is to determine the impact of disruptive technology in the ICT environment and how new technologies can be managed in a secured architecture framework of organisations in the banking sector. ...
Email security awareness: a practical assessment of employee behaviour
Email communication is growing as a main method for individuals and organizations to communicate. Sadly, this is also an emerging means of conducting crime in the cyber world, e.g. identity theft, virus attacks etc. ...
A comparative study on fault detection and correction techniques on active magnetic bearing systems
(IEEE-Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2007)
In this paper, the authors distinguish between three real-time fault detection, correction and identification schemes for vibration forces on the rotor of a rotational active magnetic bearing (AMB) system. Historical fault ...
Evaluating methods to binarize historic cosmic-ray recordings
Three adaptive image binarization approaches are evaluated to find the method best suited for the binarization of historic cosmic-ray data. The methods are optimized by fine tuning their parameters and they are then ...
Linear model of a closed three-shaft Brayton cycle
A linear model of a closed three-shaft Brayton cycle is developed. The model is intended to give an understanding of the dominant dynamic behavior in a nuclear power system that utilizes a closed three-shaft Brayton cycle. ...
Data acquisition system for capturing dynamic transients in a control valve
This work presents the development of a data acquisition (DAQ) system to be used in conjunction with fuzzy modelling to derive a dynamic mathematical model of a control valve. Characterising the behaviour of a control valve ...
Action evolution for intelligent agents
This paper introduces an alternative method of reinforcement learning for intelligent agents. The aim with this method is to closer emulate the natural thought processes of problem solving. This paper only provides a ...
On the development of a power quality benchmarking model
The development of a Power Quality (PQ) Benchmarking model is presented. Practical results are discussed to motivate the need of adding value to recorded PQ data by means of benchmarking PQ performance. The importance, ...
Towards PQ regulation in Southern Africa
This paper discuss the regulation of Power Quality (PQ) in Southern Africa from a user perspective
