This paper describes the experimental results of a medium-voltage modular 35-MW drive for oil and gas applications realized by interconnecting voltage-source three-level converters equally sharing the motor current. Drives rated for tens of megawatts are increasingly needed as torque helpers for gas turbines in the oil and gas industry, and one envisions(More)
BACKGROUND The distinction between adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) and pleomorphic adenoma (PA) on fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) can be challenging. Recently, a specific translocation t(6;9) involving the v-myb avian myeloblastosis viral oncogene homolog (MYB) and nuclear factor I/B (NFIB) genes was identified in ACCs, in which it contributes to MYB(More)
A 39 year male pharmaceutical worker employed in a clean-room developed in 2003 acute dysphonia after environmental disinfection with glutaric aldehyde and isopropyl alcohol. Laryngoscopic examination showed glottis edema; the syndrome healed after a cycle of cortisone. In subsequent years, withdrawal from exposure to irritating chemicals was observed. The(More)
