Robust Control for Inter-area Oscillations
(Virginia Tech, 2011-12-06)
In order to reduce the detrimental effects of inter-area oscillations on system stability, it is possible to use Linear Matrix Inequalities (LMIs) to design a multi-objective state feedback. The LMI optimization finds a ...
Three Dimensional Interferometric Imaging at Terahertz Frequency for Concealed Object Detection
(Virginia Tech, 2011-11-11)
This project was born out of the work performed by a group of researchers at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT)    working on interferometric imaging with a spiral array. Their investigation stopped ...
Development of Structural Health Monitoring Systems Incorporating Acoustic Emission Detection for Spacecraft and Wind Turbine Blades
(Virginia Tech, 2011-04-28)
Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) is the science and technology of monitoring and can assess the condition of aerospace, civil, and mechanical infrastructures using a sensing system integrated into the structure. SHM is ...
A Microfabricated Bioimpedance Sensor with Enhanced Sensitivity for Early Breast Cancer Detection
(Virginia Tech, 2011-12-01)
Bioimpedance is the term given to the complex impedance value that is characteristic of the resistance that biological cells offer to the flow of electric current. The objective of this study is to analyze the differences ...
Modeling of V2 Control with Composite Capacitors and Average Current Mode Control
(Virginia Tech, 2011-05-02)
Various types of current mode control are being used in different applications. Model for current mode control is indispensable for proper system design. Since 1980s, modeling of current mode control has been a hot topic ...
Minutiae Triplet-based Features with Extended Ridge Information for Determining Sufficiency in Fingerprints
(Virginia Tech, 2011-07-06)
In order to deliver statistical and qualitative backing to latent fingerprint evidence, algorithms are proposed (1) to perform fingerprint matching to aid in quality assessment, and (2) to discover statistically rare ...
