The paper deals with the determination of synchronous machine parameters using a 2D Finite Element Method – FEM (Flux2D-Cedrat). Simulations of no-load sudden three phase short-circuits are performed in rotation, the saturation effects and the eddy currents in the rotor solid iron parts are also taken into account. Comparisons between calculations and(More)
Cyclic instability is a problem that, despite being shown to affect intelligent environments and in general any rule-based system, the strategies available to prevent it are still limited and mostly focused on centralized approaches. These approaches are based on topological properties of the Interaction Network (IN) associated , and locking a set of(More)
Technology advances in the field of small, unmanned aerial vehicles and their integration with a variety of sensor packages and instruments, such as miniature mass spectrometers, have enhanced the possibilities and applications of what are now called unmanned aerial systems (UAS). With such technology, in situ and proximal remote sensing measurements of(More)
In our current situation, intelligent energy management is essential, it is necessary not only change the way how it is delivered, but also how users use it. Small changes in our life daily, such as turning off lights or air conditioning when there are not people who use it, can result in substantial energy savings. In this document, we provide information(More)
A variety of signal processing methods have been developed for detecting the heartbeat from signals obtained by non-invasive devices. In this paper, an algorithm developed for the accurate detection of heartbeats from a ballistocardiography signal is presented. The signal is obtained using a regular chair adapted with Electro-Mechanical Film (EMFi) sensors(More)
In recent years, the problem of cyclic instability has been investigated mainly using two approaches: analysing the topological properties of the system (finding loops or feedback) and bio-inspired optimization. One of the main disadvantages of analysing the topology of the system (i.e. The connectivity of the agents involved in the environment) is the(More)
