—A family of switched-capacitor resonant circuits using only two transistors is presented. The circuit operates under zero-current switching and, therefore, the switching loss is zero. It also offers a wide choice of voltage conversions including fractional as well as multiple and inverted voltage conversion ratios.
—A switched-capacitor-based step-up resonant converter is proposed. The voltage conversion of the converters is in step-up mode. By adding a different number of switched-capacitor cells, different output voltage conversion ratios can be obtained. The voltage conversion ratio from 2 to any whole number can therefore be generated by these switching-capacitor… (More)
To overcome the limitation of the traditional load forecasting method, a new load forecasting system basing on radial basis Gaussian kernel function (RBF) neural network is proposed in this paper. Genetic algorithm adopting the real coding, crossover probability and mutation probability was applied to optimize the parameters of the neural network, and a… (More)
Dosimetric comparisons between RapidArc (RA) and conventional Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) techniques for nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) were performed to address differences in dose coverage of the target, sparing of organs-at-risk (OARs), delivery of monitor units (MUs) and time, to assess whether the RA technique was more beneficial for… (More)
This paper examines the various design of a multiple-purpose portable functional electrical stimulator which is used in surface stimulation of paralyzed muscle of patients with stroke and results in limb activation. The functionality, circuit performance and reliability of the circuits will be examined. Analysis, design, and experimental results are… (More)
