This paper presents a particle swarm optimization (PSO) for reactive power and voltage control (Volt/Var Control: VVC) considering voltage security assessment (VSA). VVC can be formulated as a mixed-integer nonlinear optimization problem (MINLP). The proposed method expands the original PSO to handle a MINLP and determines an on-line VVC strategy with(More)
The microscopic appearance of a rat spinal cord which was acutely compressed by aneurysmal clip for one minute, was investigated 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 1 hour, 3 hours and 6 hours after the injury. Although the resulting small hemorrhagic lesion involved primarily only the central gray matter of the injured portion 15 minutes after compression injury,(More)
Control of nonlinear process is a complicated task in industrial environment. In this work, adaptive control technique is discussed in control of single conical tank level control system is a nonlinear system is identified mathematically. Analytical modeling were implemented and simulated in MATLAB SIMULINK and transfer function isobtain from the simulated(More)
Simultaneous measurements of spinal cord blood flow and arterial diameter at areas adjacent to a site of spinal cord injury were carried out to determine changes in CO(2) reactivity and autoregulation. The spinal cord injury was made at T10 level by the epidural clip compression method. A spinal window was drilled at an area either 7 mm caudal or 7 mm(More)
A double antibody enzyme immunoassay of plasma cortisol was established using beta-galactosidase from E. coli as the tracer. Cortisol-21-hemisuccinate was conjugated with beta-galactosidase using a water-soluble carbodiimide. An antibody raised in the rabbit against cortisol-21-hemisuccinate-bovine serum albumin was used as the first antibody and(More)
Recently interventional surgeries in a human body have been improved. They require microsurgery tools such as those for operating the inner part of a blood tube. Several prototype microsurgery tools are manufactured by micro-electrodischarge machining. The precise cutting edges of microsurgery knives of 2mm length and round microtools of 0.88mm diameter for(More)
A case of a huge skull base neurofibroma completely resected by a combined subtemporal-infratemporal and basal subfrontal approach is reported. A 32-year-old female complained of left facial paresthesia and deformity since several months before. Neurological examination revealed hypesthesia in the distribution of the left trigeminal nerve second branch. CT(More)
It is well known that the worsening of neurological findings after spinal cord injury is due to the secondary progression of pathological changes which may be caused by spinal cord blood flow disturbance. We measured spinal blood flow of 5mm rostrally and caudally distant portions from the injured point, using the laser Doppler flowmeter experimentally.(More)
An enzyme immunoassay for estrone in swine serum was established. For this, beta-galactosidase from E. coli was conjugated through estrone-17 (O-carboxymethyl)oxime using a mixed anhydride reaction. The percentage of immunoreactive estrone-17 (O-carboxymethyl)oxime-beta-galactosidase conjugate was estimated to be about 70%. The recovery rate of estrone(More)
