The objective of the CERTS Microgrid Test Bed project was to enhance the ease of integrating energy sources into a microgrid. The project accomplished this objective by developing and demonstrating three advanced techniques, collectively referred to as the CERTS Microgrid concept, that significantly reduce the level of custom field engineering needed to(More)
We present a multichip structure assembled with a medical-grade stainless-steel microelectrode array intended for neural recordings from multiple channels. The design features a mixed-signal integrated circuit (IC) that handles conditioning, digitization, and time-division multiplexing of neural signals, and a digital IC that provides control, bandwidth(More)
The User Requirements Notation (URN) combines the Goaloriented Requirement Language (GRL) with the Use Case Map (UCM) scenario notation. Although tools exist in isolation for both views, they are currently not meant to work together, hence preventing one to exploit URN to its fullest extent. This paper presents jUCMNav, a new Eclipse-based tool that(More)
Oxytocin (OT; Cys-Tyr-Ile-Gln-Asn-Cys-Pro-leu-Gly), a posterior pituitary peptide hormone, is characterized by a Cys1-Cys6 disulfide bond in its stable, isolated state. This paper describes a simple, one-step method for the production of OT in its reduced, dithiol form (OT dithiol), free of reducing agent. The effects of temperature, pH, and metal-ion(More)
Maritime at sea networks are particularly difficult to manage due to their dynamic and heterogeneous low- bandwidth links. The policy-based network management (PBNM) approach offers techniques to automate network management. It allows operators to dynamically change the behaviour of managed systems in response to evolving operational needs without requiring(More)
