UNLABELLED We evaluated in a qualitative systematic review the effect of N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonists on reducing postoperative pain and analgesic consumption beyond the clinical duration of action of the target drug (preventive analgesia). Randomized trials examining the use of an NMDA antagonist in the perioperative period were sought(More)
Cyanobacteria are a group of photosynthetic prokaryotes capable of utilizing solar energy to fix atmospheric carbon dioxide to biomass. Despite several “proof of principle” studies, low product yield is an impediment in commercialization of cyanobacteria-derived biofuels. Estimation of intracellular reaction rates by 13C metabolic flux analysis (13C-MFA)(More)
—This paper proposes a novel hybrid state estimation method using traditional SCADA (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition) and newly deployed limited PMU (Phasor Measurement Unit) measurements. System states are estimated when a set of SCADA and/or PMU measurements come in. As PMU measurements come much faster (typically one sample in 20ms) than SCADA(More)
—Electric power systems are prone to various kinds of transient disturbances which exist only for a fraction of second and often trigger cascading failures in. Hence it is important to detect and prevent them from spreading in time. Conventionally these events are prevented by deploying costly special protection systems (SPS). Unfortunately, in many cases(More)
246 Manuscript Text : 5420 Tables : 1000 Total : 6666 ABSTRACT Alternative work arrangements and unconventional shift schedules are increasingly becoming a part of the economy. The temporal mismatch problems occur when individuals that are traditionally transit-dependent do not have access to potential job locations during off-peak times. This paper uses(More)
—Economic dispatch problem is an optimization problem where objective function is highly non linear, non-convex, non-differentiable and may have multiple local minima. Therefore, classical optimization methods may not converge or get trapped to any local minima. This paper presents a comparative study of four different evolutionary algorithms i.e. genetic(More)
