GRASP (Gravitational Radiation Analysis & Simulation Package) is a public-domain software tool-kit designed for analysis and simulation of data from gravitational wave detectors. This users manual describes the use and features of this package. Note: an up-to-date version of this manual may be obtained at: http://www.ligo.caltech.edu/LIGO(More)
A comprehensive digital computer model of the two-area interconnected power system including the governor deadband non-linearity, steam reheat constraints and the boiler dynamics is developed. The improvement in AGC with the addition of a small capacity Superconducting Magnetic Energy Storage (SMES) unit is studied. Time domain simulations are used to study(More)
Rapid growth in the demand for commercial energy in Kerala, a state in India, posed serious development constraints in the recent past. The crucial issue of managing this demand will be of great importance in formulating the future development policy of the state. This study analyses the requirement of three major forms of commercial energy in the state of(More)
An adequate understanding of climate variability and the eventual prediction of climate change are among the most urgent and far-reaching efforts of the scientific community. Measurements done to-date have suggested that the mesoscale eddies and mesoscale features play a strong role in carrying heat poleward. Oceanographic visualizations may play a key role(More)
In this paper we present a novel method for the detection and segmentation of upwelling regions in AVHRR SST data. We demonstrate the effectiveness of the algorithm on data from the Monterey Bay region, with prominent upwelling regions. A byproduct of the upwelling detection algorithm is the detection of frontal boundaries. The process is started with the(More)
Wireless Sensors have been used for environmental monitoring and battlefield surveillance for many years now. Wireless, low-cost, and low-energy sensors are distributed geographically to monitor and report specific effects such as temperature, light, motion and sound. The hardware, network protocols and information retrieval techniques for wireless sensor(More)
