Education for a person plays an anchor role in shaping an individual’s career. In order to achieve success in the academic path, care should be taken in choosing an appropriate course for the learners. This research work is based on the framework to design a course advisory system in an efficient way. The design approach is based on overlapping of learning analytics, academic analytics, and personalized systems. This approach provides an efficient way to build course advisory system. Also, mapping of course advisory systems into the reference model of learning analytics is discussed in this paper. Course advisory system is considered as enhanced personalized system. The challenges involved in the implementation of course advisory system is also elaborated in this paper. © Springer Science+Business Media Singapore 2017.

Organic food products are popular across Europe and United States of America. Asia is not far behind with India being a prominent player. The concept of organic food products is not new to Indian farmers. However, there is not much of a consumption taking place domestically despite the fact that India is one of the top 10 players in the world when it comes to the number of farmers engaged in organic cultivation. This study was conducted to understand the factors of consumer perception towards organic food products. The study covered both primary investigation and secondary literature review. Data was collected with the help of a structured questionnaire and was analyzed using percentage analysis and factor analysis to identify the factors of consumer perception.

World Health Organization (WHO) reports that worldwide 7.6 million deaths are caused by cancer each year. Uncontrollable cell development in the tissues of the lung is called as lung cancer. These uncontrollable cells restrict the growth of healthy lung tissues. If not treated, this growth can spread beyond the lung in the nearby tissue called metastasis and, form tumors. In order to preserve the life of the people who are suffered by the lung cancer disease, it should be pre-diagonized. So there is a need of pre diagnosis system for lung cancer disease which should provide better results. The proposed lung cancer prediagnosis technique is the combination of FFBNN and ABC. By using the Artificial Bee Colony (ABC) algorithm, the dimensionality of the dataset is reduced in order to reduce the computation complexity. Then the risk factors and the symptoms from the dimensional reduced dataset are given to the FFBNN to accomplish the training process. In order to get higher accuracy in the prediagnosis process, the FFBNN parameters are optimized using ABC algorithm. In the testing process, more data are given to well trained FFBNN-ABC to validate whether the given testing data predict the lung disease perfectly or not. © 2005-2013 JATIT & LLS.All rights reserved.

Homogeneous and stoichiometric samples of InBi1−xSbx (x = 0, 0.1) crystals have been directionally solidified to explore their suitability for optoelectronic applications. Prior to the growth, the temperature distribution of an indigenously fabricated horizontal furnace has been analysed and optimized to conduct the growth experiments on the basis of phase diagram of the material. Systematic trials have been carried out for several growth runs (48, 60 and 72 h) by maintaining an axial temperature gradient of 4, 6 and 8 °C/cm with the aid of a temperature controller mechanism. The key parameters governing the growth mechanism, composition, phase, and structure of the grown InBi1−xSbx crystals were investigated via X-ray diffraction, scanning electron and atomic force microscopy, Raman and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. The presence of secondary phases was ruled out and the average congruent melting points of InBi and InBi0.9Sb0.1 samples were confirmed as 109.43 and 121.13 °C respectively, by employing differential scanning calorimetric analysis. Investigations on the optical, electrical and mechanical properties of these materials were carried out. Vickers microhardness was found to increase with the Sb incorporation. The average optical band gap computed from the IR transmission spectra was found to be 0.165 eV. The results obtained promise that InBi1−xSbx crystals grown by directional solidification are favourable candidates than those grown by other melt methods. © 2016 Springer Science+Business Media New York

Indium selenide (γ-In2Se3) crystals have been grown by the closed tube sublimation process in the absence of seed crystals and chemical transporting agents. The composition, structure and morphology of the samples grown under different vacuum conditions were examined by energy dispersive analysis, X-ray diffraction, and scanning electron microscope. Structural features of the crystals obtained in a vacuum of 10−3 mbar exhibited a few reflections not belonging to γ phase, whereas X-ray diffraction spectra of the crystals deposited under a vacuum of 10−6 mbar revealed evidence of sharp peaks with high intensities of γ-In2Se3 crystalline phase. When growth runs were performed for 72 h, voids were observed on the surface whereas for a duration of 120 h, platelet crystals were obtained. Optical properties of these samples were investigated using the FT-IR and photoluminescence spectroscopy. The average transmittance of the platelets in the visible and near infrared region of solar spectrum was found to be ∼81% and an optical band gap of ∼2.05 eV was computed from the transmission spectrum. Photoluminescence spectra of the grown In2Se3 crystals recorded at room temperature using an excitation laser of wavelength 355 nm showed a peak in the near band edge emission (NBE) corresponding to an energy of 2.01 eV. Under an illumination power of 12 mW/cm2, the photocurrent increased linearly with applied voltage and the dark current was found to be ~2.5×10−9 A for 10 V. These results suggest that the as-grown γ-In2Se3 platelets crystallized from vapor deposition, possess superior optoelectronic properties than the other phases for solar cell applications. © 2016 Elsevier B.V.

Ceria (0.5, 1 and 2 mol%) doped titania nano catalysts were prepared by combustion synthesis method, using titanium isopropoxide as the starting material. The prepared catalysts were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Energy dispersive X-ray analysis (EDX), Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and Infra red spectroscopy (FTIR). Total acidity of the prepared catalysts were determined by temperature programmed desorption of ammonia (TPD - NH3). XRD pattern of 1% ceria doped titania obtained by calcinations at 873 K indicated that the samples were crystalline with a mixture of anatase and rutile phase. No peaks corresponding to cerium oxide were observed XRD patterns indicating that the amount of cerium is negligible on the surface of titania catalyst. The photo catalytic activity was evaluated for the degradation of methylene blue (MB) under visible light irradiation. The degradation rates of MB on cerium doped TiO2 samples were higher than that of pure TiO2. The introduction of structural defects (cationic ceria dopant) into the titania crystal lattice leads to the change of band gap energy. As a result, the excitation energy is expanded from UV light of anatase TiO2 to visible light for ceria doped titania. © 2016 Elsevier Ltd.

Voltage stability is a major problem in power system which depended on many factors like improper load forecasting, generator outage, line fault and shortage of reactive power supply etc. For a secure and economic power system operation voltage stability should be maintained within permissible limit. Voltage stability is a measure of whole power system quality. Voltage stability studies can done by analyzing reactive power production, transmission of power and consumption. In this paper voltage stability analysis of an IEEE 14 bus system is done by calculating L-index of the buses. From load flow studies optimized voltage is chosen, and by using these voltage values L-index is calculated. From the calculated L-index values we can find out vulnerable buses. How the transformer tap changing effect the voltage stability is also calculated here. © 2016 IEEE.

Demand response (DR) programs generally is a domineering strength reserve in the upcoming electric power methods. Professional clients, industrial customers, received the key consideration on the precise demand response programs. On the other hand, little clients, like residential customers, provides more the variable answer in most of these functions. The primary purpose of this paper is usually to check out recent demand response programs, and examine various benefits along with significance connected with demand response on residential customers. © 2016 IEEE.
