A biocompatible polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) biomicrofluidic platform is designed, fabricated and tested to study protuberance growth of single plant cells in a micro-vitro environment. The design consists of an inlet to introduce the cell suspension into the chip, three outlets to conduct the medium or cells out of the chip, a main distribution chamber and(More)
Large-scale phenotyping of tip-growing cells such as pollen tubes has hitherto been limited to very crude parameters such as germination percentage and velocity of growth. To enable efficient and high-throughput execution of more sophisticated assays, an experimental platform, the TipChip, was developed based on microfluidic and microelectromechanical(More)
In this paper, a controller is designed to synchronize two different fractional chaotic systems using sliding mode control. Because of the presence of uncertainty and noise of the system, fuzzy sliding mode control is used to achieve an acceptable synchronization. The results have shown that the performed stability analysis is so efficient. And also the(More)
This paper deals with fractional order systems parameters estimation by use of Co-evolutionary Particle Swarm Optimization (CPSO) method. in some cases such as fractional order systems identification in spite of existing different methods, it is difficult to obtain estimation of model structure parameters and generally it leads to solving the with(More)
A lab-on-a-chip device with a knot shaped microfluidic network is presented to enable trapping of single pollen grains at the entrances of a series of microchannels. This set-up serves to create identical growth conditions for serially arranged tip growing plant cells such as pollen tubes. The design consists of an inlet to introduce the pollen suspension(More)
This paper presents optimization of sizing and placement of photovoltaic (PV) systems in order to utilize them in distribution systems. Output variations of such resources and consumers variations are accounted for study time to reach to actual condition. Dynamic particle swarm optimization (DPSO) is used for optimization with the aim of achieving to high(More)
Reactive power by maintaining voltage stability and reliability of the system plays an important role in the reinforcement of active power transmission support. Reactive power is also an essential element of the transfer process to provide the electric system reliability by minimizing the total cost function. In this paper, chaotic particle swarm(More)
