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 ...
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 ...
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. ...
The application of modern technology in power quality management
Little business integration of power quality management (PQM) is forthcoming amongst electrical utilities all over Southern Africa. Restricted access to proper information is the main reason. A integration of tools, ...
Improving QoS for real-time multimedia traffic in ad-hoc networks with delay aware multi-path routing
A Mobile Ad-hoc Network (MANET) is a wireless network in which nodes, in the absence of fixed access points, communicate via single or multi-hop paths. Each node in a MANET should thus be able to perform necessary routing ...
Regenerator for Varshamov-tenengolts-like synchronisation error correcting codes
Synchronisation errors, that is, the insertion of additional or deletion of valid symbols, are the most difficult class of errors to correct - containing the class of additive errors as a subset. A regenerating algorithm, ...
Efficient packet erasure decoding by transforming the systematic generator matrix of an RS code
We consider the erasures-only decoding of Reed-Solomon codes. One class of erasure decoders of algebraic codes can be viewed as a transformation of the systematic generator matrix, as first noticed by Berlekamp. We extend ...
Towards PQ regulation in Southern Africa
This paper discuss the regulation of Power Quality (PQ) in Southern Africa from a user perspective
A qualitative assessment of the insulation systems of medium voltage induction motors
The research was an attempt to understand the condition of the insulation system and to classify the data according to its condition. Data mining processes was used to create a model to gain insight into the data and the ...
Status of international interconnections and electricity deregulation in Africa: an overview of the current status in Southern Africa
The Southern African power system is in a state of flux. The grid is expanding and more interconnections are being made. However, vastness of the area and the low power consumption density in most African countries makes ...
