Theoretical Study and 3D CFD Simulation of Temperature Distribution through HTST for Orange Juice

Heat sterilization has a long history. However, due to lacking of precise research, the sterilization relies mainly on experience, which leads to uncompleted sterilization or energy wastage. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a tool to study the flow and heat transfer properties of different kinds of fluid. With the development of computer science and the improvement of CFD itself, CFD has been widely used in the industrial engineering. In this work, the CFD is used to study variation of the central temperature of an orange juice model under the HTST sterilization. Compared with the experiment results, the current simulation method is optimized and the error is reduced.

Fuzzy Control Strategy for Train Lateral Semi-active Suspension Based on Particle Swarm Optimization

Fuzzy control strategy based on PSO was proposed for the complex train lateral suspension model. In this thesis, A17-DOF train lateral semi-active suspension system was modeled by simulink software, and at the same time, fuzzy controller and control rules were designed. Then, the root mean square value (RMS) of train lateral acceleration was used as object function, and membership functions of fuzzy controller’s output variable were designed by PSO. The result of the simulation reveals that compared with the traditional fuzzy controller, the values of train lateral acceleration RMS of the front and rear bogies by using the optimized fuzzy controller reduce by 5.05% and 7.75%, respectively. In comparison with the passive suspension, the values reduce by 13.56% and 15.51%, respectively, which is more significant.

An Investigation on the Flow Field of a Vortex Cup

This work presents a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) calculation to investigate the flow field of a vortex cup. The vortex cup utilizes air swirling flow to achieve handling a work piece without any contact. The numerical calculation was performed using the standard




model and Reynolds stress model (RSM), and the pressure distribution calculated numerically was compared with the experimental results. It is found that RSM can better reproduce the characteristics of experimental results than the standard




model. Based on the calculation results of RSM, the flow field, spatial pressure and velocity distributions inside the vortex cup were clarified. Furthermore, a visualization experiment was conducted by using ink in water with an enlarged cup, in which the flow was observed and confirmed.

Numerical Simulation and Linear Active Disturbance Rejection Control of Unstable Heat Conduction Systems

This paper presents a numerical solution to one-dimensional unstable heat conduction systems with three different boundary conditions, e.g., a thin rod with heat conduction only in the length direction. A finite difference method combined with a physically feasible and high-precision boundary realization approach is employed to calculate the temperature values along the rod under Dirichlet, Neumann, and Robin boundary conditions, respectively. Using the temperature at a desired position, a simple and excellent robustness controller——linear active disturbance rejection control (LADRC) could give an effective actuation on one boundary to get the temperature on the desired position under close-loop control. Finally, the robustness of the proposed controller with respect to external noises and parameter perturbations is also tested.

Output Power Analysis and Simulations of Resonant Tunneling Diode Based Oscillators

Negative differential resistance (NDR) devices such as Esaki tunnel diodes (TD), Gunn diodes and resonant tunneling diodes (RTD) are excellent in the realization of high frequency oscillators. However, for tunnel diodes and RTDs, which have large negative differential conductance, the output power tends to be low due to the DC instability, parasitic oscillations and the small area devices employed. In this paper, the maximum device areas for different NDR oscillator topologies, such as waveguide topology and planar topology, were calculated. The result shows that NDR devices for planar oscillators can be much larger (ranging from 3 to 1600 times) than those could be used in waveguide oscillators. A derivation of the maximum RF output power of a parallel RTD oscillator circuit is given and the simulations show that ~1 mW output power could be achieved at 800 GHz for a single diode oscillator.

Equilibrium Simulation of Power Market with Wind Power Based on CVaR Approach

High wind power penetration in power systems will significantly increase risks faced by the conventional generators in the deregulated electricity markets. This will further affect these generators’ risk preferences and strategic behaviors. Based on conditional value at risk (CVaR), an equilibrium model of electricity market with wind power is developed taking into account the conventional generators’ risk preferences. The model is performed by Monte Carlo simulation and nonlinear complementary method. The impacts of wind power volatility and generators’ risk preferences on generators’ strategy behaviors and equilibrium results are analyzed and the efficient frontier of generators’ expected profit – CVaR is provided. The simulation results show that, the equilibrium market price will increase with the increase of wind power uncertainty; the increase of conventional generators’ risk aversion will also lead to an increase in the expected market price; if generators collude with others, they will be more conservative.

An Adaptive Slope Compensation Circuit and Its Application

To solve the over-compensation problem in the current mode PWM switch power, a new adaptive slope compensation circuit is proposed in this paper. In the circuit, the difference between the output and input voltage is positively correlated with the duty cycle of switch signal, which is used to generate the control signal varying with the duty ratio. The control signal is used to control the gate voltage of MOS operating in linear region, which changes the linear drain-source resistance. With clamping circuit, a proportional ramp voltage with controllable slope is produced and amplified for compensation system by two stage amplifier. This compensation voltage is almost ideal, which can reduce the negative effect of over-compensation farthest. This circuit is applied to an LED driver IC and simulated in Cadence with CSMC 0.5um BiCMOS library. The results show that the boost driver circuit using adaptive compensation has about 28% dynamic response time reducing compared with the settled slope compensation. Therefore, the proposed compensation circuit can improve system’s dynamic responsibility effectively.

Grid Current Control Strategy Based on Internal Model Control and Repetitive Control

In this paper, a new grid current control strategy based on internal model control and repetitive control is designed. The performance characteristic and operation principle are analyzed according to the basic principle of internal model control and the dynamic mathematical model of three-phase photovoltaic grid-connected inverters. Because the harmonic current caused by the dead-time effect and the periodic disturbance of the grid can not be eliminated by internal model control, a composite control strategy with internal model control and repetitive control is proposed in the paper. Internal model control can simplify the controller’s parameters and ensure the dynamic quality of the system. Repetitive control is able to restrain the dead-time effect and the periodic disturbance of the grid. It can also reduce the total harmonic distortion of the grid-connected current. The simulation results show that the proposed control strategy has good dynamic and steady-state performance and can restrain the periodic disturbance as well.

Current Trends and Issues of Origami Engineering

Japanese Origami craft is very beautiful, and the term “Origami” is translated into Origami in English. There have been many Origami creators appearing from Japan, however their craft work is not created on the basis of geometry but born from imagination they possess. As a result, only honeycomb is developed by British referring to star festival decoration of Japan. This situation is shameful for Japanese engineers. In this paper, many Origami crafts based on geometry are introduced. Taking these crafts into consideration, two facts are to be verified. One is that dire-core based on space filling geometry surpasses in some features than honeycomb, and the other is that judging from the fact plants grow up spirally, reverse spiral structure which has the same structure as them is superior as energy absorption member.

Analysis and Implementation for the Algorithm Based on Combinatorial Relaxation for Computing the Structure Index of DAE

As the society industrialized, mathematical modeling and simulation become increasingly important in the product design. At present, the multi-domain unified modeling with Modelica is a mainstream technology in the field of complex systems. Modeling of complex physical systems with Modelica often produces a high-index differential algebraic equation (DAE) system. It needs to be transformed to low-index DAE before solving it. The structure index reduction algorithm is one of the popular index reduction methods. But in some special circumstances, its solution may be incorrect. At present, combinatorial relaxation algorithm is a widely used method for solving the problem. Solving maximum weighted matching is one of important problems of the combinatorial relaxation algorithm. This paper describes the combinatorial relaxation algorithm and proposes three different implementations of Hungarian algorithm for the maximum weighted matching problem. The theory results are consistent with the experiment results,

Design and Analysis of Missile Two-Loop Autopilot with Angle of Attack Feedback

In order to eliminate the static error of the classic two loop autopilot, the PI compensator is introduced into the control system. To enhance the robustness of two loop autopilot with PI compensator, an angle of attack feedback is introduced into the system. Using the method of pole-place, the controller parameters of different two loop autopilot topologies are deduced. The analytical results show that a well designed two-loop autopilot with PI compensator can introduce a zero in numerator which counteracts the first-order inertial loop in denominator. However, the two-loop autopilot with PI compensator and angle of attack feedback introduces the phase-lead compensation in the feedback-loop. The zero cannot cancel the first-order inertial loop in denominator, and it is dominated by the first-order inertial loop. This kind of autopilot topology has better robustness than others.

In this paper, we propose a method of Web publishing of three-dimensional city models generated from two-dimensional geographical data. In our approach, the city models are assumed to be historical ones. For an example, rows of houses of Kyoto of the Edo era are generated by determining the areas of the houses based on geographical data and by placing and three-dimensional house models correspondingly. We employed Google Earth as the viewer of the city models. The viewer is embedded into a web page which enables users to access the page to overview the city and look into buildings. Some important documents related to the buildings are also embedded. As an alternative use, we apply the method to generation of city models of tsunami-damaged area in Tohoku district, Japan.

Modeling Social Opinion in Online Society

social networks Online provide a globally available, large-scale infrastructure for people to exchange information and ideas. A topic of great interest in internet research is how to model this information exchange and, in particular, how to model and analyze the effects of interpersonal influence on processes such as information diffusion, influence propagation, and opinion formation. Recent empirical studies indicate that, in order to accurately model communication in online social networks, it is important to consider not just relationships between individuals, but also the frequency with which these individuals interact. We study a model of opinion formation in social networks proposed by De Groot and Lehrer and show how this model can be extended to include interaction frequency. We prove that, for the purposes of analysis and design, the opinion formation process with probabilistic interactions can be accurately approximated by a deterministic system where edge weights are adjusted for the probability of interaction. We also present simulations that illustrate the effects of different interaction frequencies on the opinion dynamics using real-world social network graphs.

In this work, a fault detection and diagnostic module is described based on internal PLC program signal data which is acquired through OPC Server. The observed or real-time PLC signal data is compared with normal PLC signal data to find out possible faults or deviations. The data acquisition procedure and the techniques used have been explained in this paper.

Walking Speed Recognition System for Transfemoral Amputee Based on Accelerometer and Gyroscopes

A sensor system for walking speed recognition is designed. The sensor system is composed of accelerometer MMA7361L and gyroscopes ENC-03, which used to obtain walking information of transfemoral amputee. The sensor system is installed in prosthetic socket. The input signal of intelligence lower limb prosthesis is provided by this system. The signal of sensor system is collected by Quanser semi-physical simulation platform. The signal is decomposed by wavelet transformation and the useful signal is reconstructed. Feature value of that signal is extracted. K-Nearest Neighbor (kNN) algorithm is used in pattern recognition. The results of experiment indicate that the sensor system has advantages of small size, sensitive response, quickly and effectively identify amputees walking speed and so on.

Multi-class Feature Extraction Based on Common Spatial Patterns of Multi-band Cross Filter in BCIs

The CSP (Common Spatial Patterns) has been proved to be an effective feature extraction method in Brain Computer Interfaces. It is widely used for two-class problem. In this paper, the CSP algorithm is expanded to realize the EEG feature extraction for three-class problem. Firstly, the 8 ~ 30 Hz frequency band is divided into eight cross frequency bands and original EEG signals are filtered according to the eight bands. Each filtered signal can be regarded as a new channel. Then the “one to one” strategy is applied to the CSP for three-class problem. Finally, the proposed method is used to analyze the data from BCI Competition IV and the experimental data from our laboratory. The obtained features are input to SVM (Support Vector Machine) for classification. Comparing the proposed method with simple CSP, the accuracy of the former is higher than the latter by 10%.

Study on the Reproduction of Vocal Fluctuations Using Box-Muller Method for Artificial Synthesis

Human speech waveform has been synthesized in many ways. Today, text-to-speech synthesis has become the mainstreams in speech synthesis. However, this technology requires a large amount of data to make high-quality speech synthesis. For this reason, it is impossible to create a synthesized voice of many people. In this study, we aim to create a synthesized speech by focusing on the fluctuations of the vocal cords. By using Box-Muller method, we try to reproduce the fluctuations of the vocal cords. In the Box-Muller method, the average and variance values of the Gaussian function is used. In this paper, we extract the fundamental frequency and frequency variance value from the human voice. We expect that this result can help to reproduce the naturalness of the human voice.

Shepherding Behaviors with Single Shepherd in Crowd Management

Crowd management is to systematically plan and supervise the orderly movement and assembly of a crowd. Shepherding behaviors are a class of flocking behaviors in which one or more external agents (called shepherds ) try to control the motion of another group of agents (called a flock ), it has a leading application in influencing the behavior and activities of a potentially hostile crowd and bringing a mob engaged in a riot under control. In this paper, we focus on investigating shepherding behaviors with single shepherd in normal situation. In our approach, we use a global dynamic planning algorithm which is the multi-agent planning algorithm in dynamic environment to update the next region occasionally where the flock will be steered to. Also, in order to cope with unexpected events in emergency situation, we combine shepherding behaviors with behavior selection mechanisms which are implemented in rules. The simulation results show that our approach which is validated in an urban circumstance is effective and feasible.

Finite Element Analysis of Asymptomatic TMJ Disc during Mouth Opening

In the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), overloading induced by big mouth opening appears to be important in the casade of events leading to temporomandibular disorders (TMD). In this study, the stress distribution of the disc was explored during big mouth opening. For this purpose, finiteelement models of the disc of different mouth opening degree were used. The disc was loaded with its real displacement for 18 different states of mouth opening. In the model, the posterior zone suffered higher tensile stress, and the stress level increased with the progress of the opening movement. The compressive stress level in the intermediate zone is much smaller, and kept unchanged through mouth opening. Lower tangential stresses were found in the healthy articular disc during mouth opening. This indicates that stress distribution in the articular disc changed with the progress of the opening movement. Excessive mouth opening can induce tissue damage.

Simulation of Constant Resistance Knee Flexion Movement

In the lower limb training process, incorrect training methods can’t improve the diathesis of lower limb, moreover, it may make injury to the body of athletes. With the development of sports biomechanics knowledge and computer modeling simulation technology, in the sports training practice coaches make use of human motion simulation methods to carry kinematics and dynamics simulation of athletes lower limb training so that the quantitative training indicators can be got to specific athlete. In this paper a novel human-computer modeling and simulating software—The Anybody Modeling System is adopted. Coupling modeling of human lower limb and training instrument is built, and simulation of training is made. The force status of lower limb muscles are analyzed in the process of constant resistance knee flexion movement, and the results provide a basis to develop quantitative training.

Mechanical Model of a Novel Executive Mechanism for Artificial Anal Sphincter System

The artificial anal sphincter is used to simulate the normal operation of the anal. It can solve the anal incontinence and relieve patients’ life and psychological pressure. The artificial anal sphincter system proposed in the paper is based on a novel executive mechanism. The novel executive mechanism uses a hinge structure to clamp the rectum. To ensure the mechanism’s reliability, a mechanical model between the novel executive mechanism and rectum is established to predict the deformation of the rectum when compressed in the radical direction. The results show that the deformation can be controlled by adjusting the spring force.
