Phylogenetic networks are used to display the relationship among different species whose evolution is not treelike, which is the case, for instance, in the presence of hybridization events or horizontal gene transfers. Tree inference methods such as maximum parsimony need to be modified in order to be applicable to networks. In this paper, we...

The electrification of transportation, and especially aerospace transportation, increases the demand for high performance electrical machines. Those machines often need to be fault-tolerant, cheap, highly efficient, light and small, and interface well with the inverter. In addition, the development time and cost are usually limited, with little...

Should risks always be quantified before being managed? The answer is “yes” in the opinion of most asset managers in today’s electricity transmission and distribution companies, but “no” in modern theories of risk management. When the risks refer to reliability hazards of high-voltage assets, the answer to the above question is “yes, it should...

Direct conversion of sunlight into electricity is one of the most promising approaches to provide sufficient renewable energy for humankind. Solar cells are such devices which can efficiently generate electricity from sunlight through the photovoltaic effect. Thin-film silicon solar cells, a type of photovoltaic (PV) devices which deploy the...

The requirements imposed on generator circuitbreakers greatly differ from the requirements imposed on other transmission and distribution circuit-breakers. Due to the location of installation between the generator and the associated step-up transformer, a generator circuit-breaker must meet high technical requirements with respect to rated...

The growth mechanism of silicon nanocrystals (Si NCs) synthesized at a high rate by means of expanding thermal plasma chemical vapor deposition technique are studied in this letter. A bimodal Gaussian size distribution is revealed from the high-resolution transmission electron microscopy images, and routes to reduce the unwanted large Si NCs are...

This paper provides the convex hull description for the basic operation of slow- and quick-start units in power-based unit commitment (UC) problems. The basic operating constraints that are modeled for both types of units are (1) generation limits and (2) minimum up and down times. Apart from this, the startup and shutdown processes are also...

Starter/generator units based on PM machines are generally not considered due to their inherent safety risks. This technology can, however, prove advantageous for aerospace applications where mass, volume, efficiency and low maintenance costs play a significant role. A safety analysis is performed in order to identify the safety and mitigation...

In this study, epoxy-cubic boron nitride composites are fabricated, and their dielectric response is investigated. They exhibit the same trend as epoxy composites reinforced with other filler types. Thus, at low filler concentrations, they exhibit a lower relative permittivity than neat epoxy. As the fill grade further increases, the relative...

This paper introduces an approach based on the Swarm Variant of the Mean-Variance Mapping Optimization (MVMO-S) to solve the multi-scenario formulation of the optimal placement and coordinated tuning of power system supplementary damping controllers (POCDCs). The effectiveness of the approach is evaluated based on the classical IEEE 39-bus (New...

Since the first report on the fabrication of hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si:H) in 1965, this material has found many applications, for instance in the fabrication of solar cells, sensors and transistors. An especially notable example in the context of this thesis is thin-film silicon solar cells, which have attracted a lot of attention....

It has been predicted that due to the population growth the energy demand is increasing faster and faster. It has been well recognized that depleting fossil-fuel resources will not fulfill the energy need of the future world. Not to mention the problem of global warming caused by its combustion, and of energy security as a result of geopolitical...
