To discover the distribution and risk of pesticides in Jiulong River and estuary, the residues of 102 pesticides were analyzed in water, sediment and clam samples collected from 35 sites in different seasons. A total number of 82 pesticides were detected and the occurrence and the risk to human and fish were assessed. Most of pesticides with high frequency(More)
A six-switch three-phase inverter is widely used in a high-power grid-connected system. However, the antiparallel diodes in the topology operate in the hard-switching state under the traditional control method causing severe switch loss and high electromagnetic interference problems. In order to solve the problem, this paper proposes a topology of the(More)
This paper describes a low cost sensorless switched reluctance motor (SRM) driver system based on gradient of phase current. The sensorless control method uses the change of the gradient of the phase current to detect the rotor position where the rotor pole and stator begin to overlap. At this position, phase inductance begins to increase. Voltage control(More)
CTLA4-Ig is an Fc fusion protein containing the extracellular domain of CTLA-4, a receptor known to deliver a negative signal to T cells. CTLA4-Ig modulates T cell costimulatory signals by blocking the CD80 and CD86 ligands from binding to CD28, which delivers a positive T cell costimulatory signal. To engineer CTLA4-Ig variants with altered binding(More)
Mangrove forests have the potential to export carbon to adjacent ecosystems but whether mangrove-derived organic carbon (OC) would enhance the soil OC storage in seagrass meadows adjacent to mangroves is unclear. In this study we examine the potential for the contribution of mangrove OC to seagrass soils on the coast of North Sulawesi, Indonesia. We found(More)
2,2',4,4'-Tetrabromodiphenyl ether (BDE-47), 6-hydroxy-tetrabromodiphenyl ether (6-OH-BDE-47), and 6-methoxy-tetrabromodiphenyl ether (6-MeO-BDE-47) are the most detected congeners of polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs), OH-BDEs, and MeO-BDEs, respectively, in aquatic organisms. Although it has been demonstrated that BDE-47 can interfere with certain(More)
Due to phasing out of additive flame retardants such as polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs), Tris (2-butoxyethyl) phosphate (TBOEP) is widely used as a substitute. TBOEP is ubiquitous in the environment and has been measured at concentrations of micrograms per liter (μg L(-1)) in surface waters and wastewater. Information on potential adverse effects on(More)
It has been reported that sleeve lobectomy (SL) concomitant with or without pulmonary artery reconstruction (PAR) might be an alternative procedure for pneumonectomy (PN) in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The aim of this study was to assess whether SL or PN offers a low morbidity and mortality and better long-term survival. We performed a meta-analysis(More)
Vibration and acoustic noise limit the application of switched reluctance motors (SRMs). Because the radial vibration of the stator is the primary source of the acoustic noise of SRMs, the modal analysis of the stator vibration is an important and effective way to reduce the acoustic noise. In this paper, we construct eight computational models by varying(More)
A novel active clamping zero-voltage switching three-phase boost pulsewidth modulation (PWM) rectifier is analyzed and a modified minimum-loss space vector modulation (SVM) strategy suitable for the novel zero-voltage switching (ZVS) rectifier is proposed in this paper. The topology of the novel ZVS rectifier only adds one auxiliary active switch, one(More)
