This paper presents a methodology to quantify and to locate leaks. The original contribution is the use of a tool based on the TrustRank algorithm for the selection of nodes for pressure monitoring. The results from these methodologies presented here are: (I) A sensitivity analysis of the number of pressure transducers on the quality of the final solution;(More)
In this paper a hybrid approach is presented to design and implement a GSM digital down convertor for enhanced resource utilization. The proposed DDC has been implemented by hybridizing the multiplier less and multiplier based decimators. A multiplier less CIC decimator has been used to reduce the cost by reducing the multiplier requirement. Two(More)
The need for real-time plasma position control on the ISTTOK tokamak led to the development of two similar 240 A:500 kA/s fast power supplies, for the vertical and horizontal magnetic equilibrium fields. This paper presents the design, the digital link, the modeling and operation of the vertical B-field power supply. It consists of a digital hard real-time(More)
This paper presents a new approach to divide large Water Distribution Networks (WDN) into suitable District Metered Areas (DMAs). It uses a hydraulic simulator and two operational models to identify the optimal number of DMAs, their entry points and boundary valves, and the network reinforcement/replacement needs throughout the project plan. The first model(More)
This study aimed to analyze the plasma ACTH levels and the correlation between the ACTH levels and pain and anxiety during parturition. Seventeen parturients received routine nursing care (control group--CG) and nineteen (Experimental Group--EG) were stimulated and guided to perform respiration and relaxation techniques. ACTH levels, pain intensity and(More)
