Prediction of Stability Limits for Binary and Ternary Systems Using the NTRL Liquid Phase Model
Stability limits (spinodal loci) were determined for 53 binary systems and 26 ternary systems. Rigorous thermodynamic criteria for spinodal limits and criticality conditions in terms of mixture Gibbs free energy were derived ...
Voltage Stability Assessment of Dubai Power Grid Using a Detailed Load Model
Voltage stability problem has become one of the major concerns for power utilities in recent years. This is due to the exponentially growing demands and the associated stress on the power transmission resources. Moreover, ...
Technology Management and Analysis of Integrating Fuel Cell Systems in Gas Turbine Power Plants
In this thesis, comprehensive and detailed energy and economic analyses of integrating different types of fuel cells in gas turbine power plants are performed. The research investigates the performance of a hybrid system ...
Biometric Identification Based on Eye Movement and Iris Features Using Task-Driven and Task-Independent Stimuli
This work investigates the feasibility of using the dynamic features of the eyes for biometric identification. Identifying individuals using eye movements is typically limited by a low accuracy, thus preventing this technique ...
Transmission Line Fault Location Using Unsynchronized Measurements
Designing reliable and accurate fault locating algorithms is still considered a challenge despite the intense research and development efforts transcribed in literature. Modern power system networks have grown in complexity ...
Using a Pattern Recognition-Based Technique to Assess the Condition of Silicone Rubber Outdoor Insulators
Several transmission and distribution companies worldwide have started to replace their existing outdoor ceramic insulators with silicone rubber insulators. The use of silicone rubber insulators in outdoor insulators was ...
Face Recognition in Uncontrolled Indoor Environment
Face recognition (FR) is one of the most convenient biometric systems even though it is not currently the most reliable one. Especially when images for (FR) system are captured by surveillance cameras, such cameras often ...
Integrated Renewable Energy Options for HVAC-Cooling Systems
The demand for energy is increasing at an unexpected rate all over the world. Most of the present worldwide energy usage is based on fossil fuel and results in continuous depletion of this resource. Conventional Heating ...
Modeling and Identification of Nonlinear DC Motor Drive Systems Using Recurrent Wavelet Networks
The main objective of this research is to study the use of Recurrent Wavelet Networks (RWN) for the modelling and identification of nonlinear dynamic systems. Since the vast majority of physical processes and systems exhibit ...
