The [Ca2+ + Mg2+]-ATPase activity of bovine lactating mammary gland is associated with membranes. This study compares the ATPase activity in microsomal membranes to that of the Golgi apparatus. The enzyme activity in both fractions hydrolyzed Ca(2+)-ATP and Mg(2+)-ATP. The ATPase activities were inhibited by p-chloromercuribenzoate, indicating the(More)
Active filters have become a viable alternative for controlling harmonic levels in industrial and commercial facilities. However, there are many different filter configurations that can be employed and there is no standard method for rating the active filters. This paper describes the active filter operation characteristics and develops standard ratings(More)
As RoboCup continues its march towards the day when robots play soccer against people, the focus of researchers’ efforts is slowly shifting from low-level systems (vision, motion, self-localization, etc) to high-level systems such as strategy and cooperation. In the Four-Legged League (recently renamed to the Standard Platform League), teams are still(More)
We consider the problem of building a quadtree subdivision for a set E of n non-intersecting edges in the plane. Our approach is to first build a quadtree on the vertices corresponding to the endpoints of the edges, and then compute the intersections between E and the cells in the subdivision. For any k ≥ 1, we call a K-quadtree a linear compressed quadtree(More)
Harmonic problems are increasing on MV systems, especially with the application of power factor correction capacitors or extensive underground networks that resulting resonances close to the fifth harmonic. This paper describes two case studies of solving harmonic resonance problems on distribution systems with the design of harmonic filters that provide(More)
