A significant minority of patients who have sustained a mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) may exhibit persistent disability. There have been few attempts to describe and evaluate the effectiveness of neurorehabilitation for these patients. We conducted a retrospective analysis of the results of a neuropsychological rehabilitation programme for 20 patients(More)
Many researches dealt with the problem of induction motors fault detection and diagnosis. The major difficulty is the lack of an accurate model that describes a fault motor. Moreover, experienced engineers are often required to interpret measurement data that are frequently inconclusive. A fuzzy logic approach may help to diagnose induction motor faults. In(More)
This paper deals with the fault ride-through capability assessment of a doubly fed induction generator-based wind turbine using a high-order sliding mode control. Indeed, it has been recently suggested that sliding mode control is a solution of choice to the fault ride-through problem. In this context, this paper proposes a second-order sliding mode as an(More)
A neuropsychologic bedside screening instrument has been developed for use with recovering, cognitively impaired inpatients. Its purpose is to help clarify the nature and extent of cognitive impairments and to quantify change during recovery. The Barry Rehabilitation Inpatient Screening of Cognition (BRISC) represents an extension downward into the broad(More)
This paper deals with the sensorless control of a doubly-fed induction generator (DFIG) based wind turbine. The sensorless control scheme is based on a high-order sliding mode (HOSM) observer to estimate the DFIG rotational speed. Indeed, high-order sliding mode observers provide theoretically finite time exact state observation and estimation of absolutely(More)
This paper deals with the power generation control in variable speed wind turbines. In this context, a control strategy is proposed to ensure power extraction optimization of a DFIGbased wind turbine. The proposed control strategy combines an MPPT using a high gain observer and second-order sliding mode for the DFIG control. This strategy presents(More)
This paper describes the theory and experiments of a new technology for propelled thrusters. The principle is to extend the potentialities of magnetic-coupling motor shafts by adding degrees of freedom in their kinematics. The idea is to redirect the propeller and therefore, the thrust to another direction without adding or moving any motors. The focus of(More)
This paper deals with the Fault Ride-Through (FRT) capability assessment of a Doubly-Fed Induction Generator (DFIG)-based Wind Turbine (WT) using High-Order Sliding Mode (HOSM) control. Indeed, it has been recently suggested that sliding mode control is a solution of choice to the FRT problem. In this context, this paper proposes HOSM as an improved(More)
