Efficient energy generation and consumption is a key factor to achieve ambitious goals related to air pollution and climate change. Modern electricity networks can include different kind of sources, such as renewable energy sources (RES). Then, hybrid systems are obtained by combining several sources and storage types in the new concept called microgrid(More)
The software complexity of MPSoCs is increasing dramatically, resulting in new design challenges, such as improving the system's performance and programmability by porting parallel programming APIs. Such challenges impose more time and cost on the system's software development. This leads to the adopting of virtual platform frameworks aimed at functional(More)
The growing concerns of energy efficiency and performance scalability motivate research in the area of many-core embedded systems. The software development of such systems plays an important role on the system performance, while accounting for a significant part of the total energy consumption. Thus, it becomes imperative to consider the software energy(More)
Bipolar plates (BPs) are one of the most important components in Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells (PEMFC) due to the numerous functions they perform. The objective of the research work described in this paper was to develop a simplified and validated method based on Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), aimed at the analysis and study of the influence of(More)
Background: Due to the high failure rate observed in the clinical treatment of morbid obesity an increase in bariatric surgery indications, as an alternative for the control of obesity and comorbidities, is noticeable. Aim: To evaluate the performance of type 2 diabetes mellitus, high blood pressure and dyslipidemia in patients submitted to Roux-en-Y(More)
