Advances in Industrial Model-Predictive Control.
Due to the economically sensitive condition of the chemical and petroleum industries, we can no longer afford to operate with the inefficiencies of the past. Over the last 15 years we have found that on-line optimization ...
A New Approach to Realize Partially Symmetric Functions.
In this paper, we consider the class of partially symmetric functions and outline a method to realize them. Each such function can be expressed as a sum of totally symmetric functions such that a circuit can be designed ...
Thermal Reliability Management in PCB Design.
This paper investigates the extent to which the thermal reliability of components as a function of their location on a convectively cooled printed circuit board (PCB) needs to be considered in the design process. A technique ...
Observers for Optimal Anticipatory Control of Ram Velocity in Injection Molding.
The application of optimal anticipatory control assumes that the entire state is available for feedback. However, in the case of injection molding this assumption is violated due to economic considerations. For that purpose, ...
Reliability Optimization Schemes for Convectively Cooled PCBs.
This article discusses the optimum placement of a single row of convectively cooled electronic components In order to reduce failures. It is shown that this problem is analogous to the classical operations research problem ...
A model is introduced for a switching system consisting of a number of modes (e.g., differential equations) together with a set of switching rules. The rules permit occasional nonuniqueness but are shown to preserve a ...
Noncoherent Hybrid DS-SFH Spread-Spectrum Multiple-Access Communications.
The performance of noncoherent reception in synchronous hybrid direct-sequence/slow-frequency-hopped spread-spectrum multiple- access communication systems operating through additive white Gaussian noise channels is ...
Optimal Anticipafory Control of Ram Velocity in Injection Molding.
This paper discusses a computer control system for ram velocity of an injection molding machine using optimal state feedback based on the linear quadratlc control theory. A new approach for the selection of appropriate ...
Robust MINIMAX Source Coding with a Fidelity Criterion.
The problem of minimax robust source coding under a fidelity criterion for sources whose statistics belong to uncertainty classes determined by 2-alternating Choquet capacities is examined. We consider (i) single-letter ...
Small Degree Solutions for the Polynomial Bezout Equation.
The purpose of this paper is to briefly report on some new advances of the problem of explicit (concretely computable) solutions to the Bezout equations, which are based on some recent developments in complex analysis.
