Control Strategies for Blood Pressure Regulation in the Diabetic Patients Post Surgery

In modern years, most patients have diabetic, mean blood pressure and glucose associated health conditions, which can be treated by infusion of an antidote, although the dosage amount depends on the severity of the individual. The monitoring and regulation of the degree of dose is therefore critical in improving the health status of patients. This paper suggests that the dose of the medication infusion be regulated and managed on the basis of its amount. This is done by developing an integrated monitoring device that increases safety in less time and reduces healthcare costs. A statistical model of patient reaction to drugs is obtained in this article. The model comprises five dimensions that range from patient to patient based on their drug response. The key purpose of the documentation is to enhance the efficiency and robustness of medication distribution activities. This Internal model control (IMC) based Proportional integral derivative (PI/PID) controller is introduced as a control system for patient distribution of drugs that will provide enhanced robustness and efficiency. The IMC driven PI/PID system has just one calibration parameter ( $$\lambda$$ ), which is calibrated depending on the highest sensitivity $$\left({M}_{S}\right)$$ . This method does not involve complex mathematical equations.

Detecting Obfuscated Malware Using Graph Neural Networks

In this paper, we propose a method for detecting obfuscated malware on Android using graph neural networks (GNNs). Obfuscation is a well-known technique used by malware creators to hide themselves from being detected by anti-virus softwares. Our approach uses GNNs to represent the code of an Android app as a graph and applies graph convolutional networks to classify the app as benign or malicious. We evaluated our method on a real-world dataset of Android apps and compared it to other state-of-the-art algorithms. Our results show that our method outperformed the other algorithms in many different metrics. The proposed method has potential for application in real-world scenarios, as it can detect obfuscated malware with high accuracy.

Semi-Vector Controlled PM Synchronous Motor Drive

Vector control and self-control are the most widely used control techniques of the PM synchronous motor. Self-control technique is comparatively simple and cost-effective compared to vector control. However, this technique is unable to provide satisfactory performance for sinusoidal back E.M.F. machines. Self-control is suitable for trapezoidal back EMF motors. The vector control technique is the best high-performance control technique of sinusoidal back E.M.F. machines. In this paper, a semi-vector control scheme is discussed for sinusoidal back E.M.F. machines. The major advantage of this scheme over vector control is that reference frame transformations of motor variables and close current control are not required which makes the drive simple and less costly than vector control drive. The performance of the semi-vector control drive is in between vector control and self-control drives. The developed drive can be used for many industrial and domestic applications in place of a self-control drive. Performance of the drive is being validated by experimental study and satisfactory results are found.

Comparative Analysis of RSA-RK and ECC-RK for Aadhaar Card

Hackers are inventing novel strategies to breach the encrypted information of practically all existing cryptographic algorithms, and therefore network security has always been an emerging study in communication technology. “Elliptic Curve Cryptography” (ECC) is a new cryptographic approach that has been demonstrated to work in public-key cryptosystems. ECC’s benefits ensure secure data transmission across an insecure medium. The standard ECC key pact procedure is based on El-Gamal encryption. ECC is the handiest procedure for network security because it offers good security with smaller key sizes, quicker computations, lower computing power, and less storage space. By merging ECC and Runge–Kutta (RK) methods, the performance of the ECC cryptanalysis technique is enhanced in relation to speed and security in this paper. The key advantages of RK techniques are that they are simple to use and have a low error rate. The Runge–Kutta-ECC procedure is designed to improve the avalanche effect, speed, throughput, and power consumption of the method. The enhanced performance of the RKECC method is discussed, in addition to the experimental results. There is also a detailed mathematical justification for the RKECC algorithm.

Efficient Solar Cell Using COMSOL Multiphysics

This research is concentrated on building solar cells with greater efficiency than standard solar cells. The main aim of this work is to extend solar cells in such a way that their efficiency can be increased in comparison to regular solar cells. Our project's model is a one-dimensional silicon p–n junction with carrier generation and Shockley–Read–Hall recombination. This model represents how solar cells behave under forward bias at various voltages. For the front surface doping, a geometric doping model is employed, whereas an analytical doping model is used for the uniform bulk doping (the surface is specified in the Boundary Selection for Doping Profile sub-node). The Shockley–Read–Hall recombination model is implemented in a Trap-Assisted Recombination feature, while the photogeneration is carried out in a User-Defined Generation feature. Two Metal Contact features are used to make the electrical connections to the front and back surfaces. The generation rate is expressed simply as a user-defined spatially dependent variable using an integral equation involving the silicon absorption spectrum and solar irradiation. Additionally, the primary recombination impact is captured using the Shockley–Read–Hall model. Photo-generated carriers are swept to either side of the p–n junction’s depletion zone during normal operation. A moderate forward bias voltage is used to generate the electrical power, which is produced by the photo-current and the applied voltage. After reviewing numerous studies, we have been led to the realization that adjusting the dimensions of the solar cell under ID configuration in the COMSOL Multiphysics software has improved the efficiency. We prefer COMSOL Multiphysics because it is simple to use, gives us a lot of exposure, and provides accurate data for whatever material we utilize.

Post Quantum Secure Blockchain Architecture for Data Dissemination

Post quantum cryptography is the key idea to resist quantum attacks. The Fiat-Shamir were the first who introduce efficient lattice-based signatures. A lattice-based signature ensures the security of blockchain architecture against quantum computers. However, a blockchain is always consisting of multiple communicating nodes, so there is a need to develop a verification method for multiple nodes. We have proposed a blockchain using module lattices. Blockchain security relies upon two assumptions, (1) Module Learning With Errors and (2) Module Short Integer Solution. The system can provide security against quantum attacks.

An Open-Source Learning Management System

In recent years, the need to integrate new technologies into the educational process has been increasing. The use of the Internet in education has increased steadily over the last decade as new technologies make it easier for students to learn. Using distance learning tools, students’ learning can be flexible across location and time constraints. Therefore, students can access information anytime, anywhere, whether in the library or in the classroom. Distance education is notoriously expensive, and as schools become major providers of distance education, budgeting becomes even more important. Cost relative to the learning environment is a disadvantage of distance education, and the work of education management can eliminate it. Using comprehensive learning management will help improve learning tools and improve learning quality. A web-based learning management system called the Learning Management System (LMS) assists teachers in meeting objectives, planning lessons, and inspiring students. In the twenty-first century, learning management systems (LMS) have emerged as a crucial instrument for delivering education. This white paper provides an overview of LMSs, including their features, capabilities, and future directions. This article discusses the main features and roles, advantages and limitations of LMS, and current trends in LMS development. The essay also analyses difficulties with LMS adoption and makes suggestions for further study. It also discusses the LMS that has been developed and can be integrated directly into the organization if needed. The comparison of several LMSs is also included in the article.

Design and Implementation of Seven-Level Reduced Switch Count Multilevel Inverter for Electric Vehicle Applications

This article introduces a novel workup of a multilevel inverter which can be used for electric vehicles. This multilevel inverter is implemented with seven number of power switches and two asymmetrical sources. The most common modulation technique used in multilevel inverters is pulse width modulation and sinusoidal pulse width modulation is used in this multilevel inverter to eliminate harmful low-order harmonics. In this multilevel inverter, seven switches are used to get the desired output voltage and current waveforms at seven levels. In conventional multi-level inverters, more number of power components are used to obtain seven-level output waveform, which increases harmonic distortion as well as switching losses and cost. This usage of seven switches in the proposed inverter significantly minimizes switching costs, low-order harmonics, and switching losses, thereby reducing total harmonic distortions.

A Topology for Reactive Power Compensation in Grid System Using a Low-Cost Thyristor Switched Capacitor Scheme

The device described in this publication is a thyristor-switched capacitor (TSC) device used in a 200 kV/11 kV, 200 MW grid system. In addition to the capacitor bank's transient-free switching, a technique for compensating VAR is described. This study's goal is to offer a topology at the lowest possible price. Flexible AC transmission systems (FACTS) have been developed as an alternative to conventional methods for enhancing the efficiency, reliability, and power quality of electrical energy networks. These systems are currently in use in many countries across the world. FACTS are generally referred to as systems that control voltage, impedance, and phase angle in AC systems. Furthermore, due to advancements in semiconductor technology, static VAR compensation devices have begun to be used on the medium and high-voltage sides. The ability of these systems to make adjustments without relying on VAR from the grid is their key strength. In this study, a static VAR compensator made up of three TSCs and one TCR structure is used to supply the system with the necessary VAR. In the simulation studies, the static compensator is used to supply the VAR instead of a voltage source. This prevented the system from using its capacity inefficiently. The use of static VAR compensators is advised, especially when an unbalanced load and instant VAR are needed.

An Automated Two-Stage Brain Tumour Diagnosis System Using SVM and Geodesic Distance-Based Colour Segmentation

In the medical profession, brain tumour is a very crucial illness. A brain tumour is an unwanted mass growing in the brain cells; if it’s not prevented, it will eventually cause death. Therefore, tumour diagnosis is essential. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is used to identify the brain tumour quickly. The approach of detecting a brain tumour from human eyesight is quite difficult. The proposed work automatically diagnoses the brain tumour. This proposed technique has two stages: classification and segmentation. The classification stage is used to classify the T2W-MRI images into a tumour and normal using 8 x 8 blocks with gray-level co-occurrence matrix (GLCM) features using a support vector machine (SVM). The second stage segments the FAIR and T1C type MRI images using colour-based segmentation technique. This proposed method uses the BraTS2013 dataset. Classification and segmentation result is calculated by sensitivity, specificity and accuracy. In the segmentation, it additionally uses the dice similarity coefficient (DSC) to find the accuracy. The outcomes denote the proposed method's accuracy of classification as 96.66% and the DSC of segmentation accuracy as 80%.

Assessment of Online Teaching Using Statistical and Unsupervised Learning Methods

The objective of the present study is to assess different aspects of online teaching from faculties’ perspective. We investigate the level of the difficulties faced by faculty members in handling Moodle, the satisfaction level of online teaching, and online evaluation, and the role of previous awareness/training programs in facing difficulties handling Moodle. Finally, we find the grey areas in online teaching. We collected data from 104 faculty members of Graphic Era Hill University (GEHU) for the present study. Analysis of variance approach and t-test are used for different purposes. K-Means Clustering method is used for analyzing the role of training programs in facing difficulties in handling Moodle. We found that different aspects of Moodle handling were considered equally difficult; satisfaction level in content delivery only is considered high. Satisfaction levels in two components of evaluation, multiple choice questions (MCQ) and descriptive questions (DQ) were neither considered the same nor high; however, satisfaction in MCQ is considered a little more than in DQ. Through clustering patterns, we found a significant effect of previous awareness/training in facing difficulty in handling Moodle. These findings may be useful for making strategies for online teaching in the future.

Computer Vision Assisted Bird–Eye Chilli Classification Framework Using YOLO V5 Object Detection Model

A computer vision-based bird-eye chilli sorting system has become essential due to the rising demand for quality verification and effective sorting of chilli products. The quality of bird-eye chilli, or ‘kantari mulaku’, directly affects the flavour and is a highly sought-after ingredient in many different cuisines around the globe. Computer vision technology-based automated sorting systems can precisely recognize and categorize chillies based on various quality factors like size, shape, colour, and texture. Additionally, computer vision-based sorting systems are perfect for large-scale production facilities because they can constantly run for prolonged periods with little supervision. This paper describes a method for categorizing bird-eye chilli using a 3 DOF robotic manipulator and the You Only Look Once-V5 object recognition algorithm. Images of bird-eye chillies in various orientations and settings make up the dataset used in this research. This dataset was used to train the algorithm, and the model successfully identified and classified bird-eye chilli. The chillies were then grabbed by a robotic manipulator and sorted according to their degree of maturity. The proposed approach obtained an average precision of 0.90 and a mAP of 0.94. Chillies can be graded with high precision, consistency, and efficiency using a robotic manipulator, which boosts output and lowers human error rates. The developed YOLO V5 framework is deployed in Raspberry Pi 4B graphical processing unit, verifying the efficacy. The outcomes of this work show how successfully classifying bird-eye chilli using YOLO V5 can be applied in the food and agricultural industries.

An Effective Grid Connected Multi Level Inverter Based Hybrid Wind and Solar Energy

A modified multi-level inverter with a cascaded H-bridge with a grid connected hybrid wind-solar energy system is given. Utilising their individual MPPT (maximum power point tracking) systems. In this paper, both solar and wind energy are used as input sources to the system. The total harmonic (THD) is reduced so that the appliances in the system are least affected or damaged. The dc/dc booster converters are used to step up the voltage and the maximum power is obtained by using maximum power point tracking (MPPT). Due to non-linear loads, the harmonics are produced in the system so in order to reduce the harmonics we use the MLI, as the level increases the harmonic distortion in the system decreases, so that we can reduce the disturbances and increase the appliances efficiency. So, the pulse width modulation (PWM) is used as an inverter in the system to produce the sinusoidal ac output. In this paper, we discuss mostly about, to obtain balanced voltage and current of two sources when connected by a dc-link, reducing the THD and Improve the Power quality. As the frequency is constant but the voltage is variable the voltage and frequency will be matchable as the frequency maintains constant. Hence, the output waveforms of multi-level inverter, and the simulation investigations were verified and completed in MATLAB/Simulink.

Tie-Line Power Frequency Stability Control of an Interconnected Hybrid Power System Using a Virtual Inertia Controller by the GWO Algorithm

Recently, several significant growth in the perception of Renewable Energy Sources (RES) in power systems, has led to a drop in the complete system inertia. The tie-line power movement and frequency stability control are two important aspects of power system operation. In this paper, a virtual inertia controller is proposed for a hybrid interconnected power system to enhance the frequency stability and control the tie-line power flow. The VIC follows the inertia of synchronous generators using power electronics converters. The controller calculates the power imbalance concerning the generation and consumption in the power system and provides a proportional response to maintain the system frequency within the desired range. The Grey Wolf Optimization (GWO) algorithm can be used to enhance the controller parameters, such as the gain and time constant, to minimize the frequency deviation in the power system. The proposed controller is designed to regulate the power output of renewable energy sources and provide a frequency response during a disturbance. The model result demonstrates that the suggested controller enhances the frequency stability and reduces the power fluctuations caused by the RES.

Detection of FDI Attacks on Power Grid Using Graph-Theoretical Methods

Smart grid is a reliable and efficient system for electrical power distribution in recent years. One of the drawbacks of this grid is its susceptibility to cyber-attacks. State estimation of the power grid under such an attack is of utmost importance for preventing serious damage to the grid. This paper focuses on the detection of False Data Injection (FDI) attacks that manipulates the Phasor Measurement Unit (PMU) data. An algorithm is presented that can detect the attack zone by analyzing the anomalies in the measurement after the attack. The algorithm is tested on the standard IEEE 118-bus system and the estimation error is used to evaluate the performance of this algorithm. It can successfully detect the attacked buses and estimate the parameters after the attack using graph theoretical methods. The algorithm also differentiates between attacks, load disturbances and single-line faults in the grid.
