In this work a characterization of a Wireless Power Transfer (WPT) system as a possible channel for data communication is presented. The frequency response of a real WPT system based on the principle of magnetic resonance coupling is simulated accurately using a lumped equivalent circuit model. The theoretical channel capacity of the channel is calculated(More)
In this work a zero input stability analysis of the self-organizing map (SOM) learning algorithm and related unsupervised vector quantization algorithms is presented. The stability of the SOM incremental learning rule is analyzed using the theory of dynamical switched systems. The equation is demonstrated to be asymptotically stable under simple constraints(More)
In this paper an extensive set of measurements, simulations and testing of a commercial modem are performed in an electric vehicle to evaluate the performance of PLC. The noise of the motor drive is measured and characterized in the time and frequency domains. Also, the noise generated by the AC/DC converter is measured and described. The symbol-error-rate(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this manuscript is to describe the first year of our experience using extracorporeal membrane oxygenation support. METHODS Ten patients with severe refractory hypoxemia, two with associated severe cardiovascular failure, were supported using venous-venous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (eight patients) or veno-arterial(More)
INTRODUCTION Leukocyte infiltration is central to the development of acute lung injury, but it is not known how mechanical ventilation strategy alters the distribution or activation of inflammatory cells. We explored how protective (vs. injurious) ventilation alters the magnitude and distribution of lung leukocyte activation following systemic endotoxin(More)
In this paper the possibility to approximate the frequency response of a three-conductor power cable as a PLC channel by a two-conductor equivalent is investigated. The approximation is useful to perform faster numerical simulations of a PLC channel in the analysis or design of a three-phase PLC channel. The radius and distance between two conductors(More)
