The present study adopts an integrative modelling methodology, which combines the strengths of the SLEUTH model and the Conservation Assessment and Prioritization System (CAPS) method. By developing a scenario-based geographic information system simulation environment for Hashtpar City, Iran, the manageability of the landscape under each urban growth scenario is analysed. In addition, the CAPS approach was used for biodiversity conservation suitability mapping. The SLEUTH model was implemented to generate predictive urban layers of the years 2020, 2030, 2040 and 2050 for each scenario (dynamic factors for conservation suitability mapping). Accordingly, conservation suitability surface of the area is updated for each time point and under each urban development storyline. Two-way analysis of variance and Duncan’s new multiple range tests were employed to compare the functionality of the three scenarios. Based on results, the managed urban growth scenario depicted better results for manageability of the landscape and less negative impact on conservation suitability values. © 2017 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group

The high impedance fault detection in power system is one of the hard works and if the fault does not clear then the power system may get into damage. In this paper a new method for high impedance fault detection is proposed. The proposed method is based on the chaotic and doffing function. The paper will propose the appropriate formula and the setting parameters. The method is applied on a sample distribution network and the simulation results show that the new method properly works. ©2010 IEEE.

International Review on Modelling and Simulations | Year: 2011

In this paper, a modeling and simulation analysis of two layers 6/4 three phase Switched Reluctance (SR) Machine is carried out. This machine consists of two magnetically dependent stator and rotor layers, where each stator layer includes six salient poles with windings wrapped around them, while the rotor comprises of four salient poles with different arc lengths and no windings. There is a stationary reel, which has the field coils wrapped around it and is placed between the two-stator sets. The distinctive point of this machine is its ability to work in motor and generator modes, which leads to hybrid operation. The mathematical model is carried out to obtain the characteristics of this machine (motor and generator). The torque ripple reduction is done as well by a novel introduced method using Rotor Shifting Method (RST). Furthermore, machine operations as SR motor and generator is simulated by 3D Finite Element Method (FEM). Finally, the mathematical model and simulation results are compared. © 2011 Praise Worthy Prize S.r.l. - All rights reserved.

This paper presents a new method for eccentricity fault diagnosis in switched reluctance motor (SRM). This method makes it possible to determine the eccentricity faulty phase. The proposed signature is based on the analysis of produced currents. It is theoretically shown that the occurrence of the fault level cause an increase in amplitude of the produced current, which can be employed to diagnose the fault. According to the obtained results by theoretical analysis, a pattern is introduced in order to detect fault location or faulty phase. A test bed in the laboratory is established to perform various measurements on the eccentric motor with different fault levels. © 2015 IEEE.

The Switched Reluctance Motor (SRM) is a high speed; simple and robust structure motor with high output torque and no windings on its rotor. In this paper, a two-layer 6 by 4 switched reluctance motor is proposed and investigated. The motor is simulated employing 3D Finite Element Method (FEM) to realize the motor characteristics. The flux linkage and static torque profile of the motor as well as the flux density flow of the motor through the rotor, stator and shaft is extracted by the simulation results. Furthermore, the prototype of the motor is fabricated to determine the validity of the results obtaining from simulation. The experimental analysis is performed using one conventional SRM which is coupled to fabricated motor as a load. The setup provides torque-speed and torque-current characteristics of the motor the shape as well as the measurement of the motor are taken out. © 2012 Praise Worthy Prize S.r.l. - All rights reserved.

This paper proposes an automatic vehicles counting, classification and tracking for identifying Traffic flows in an intersection which is a fundamental task for video surveillance in urban traffic management. In intelligent transportation systems (ITS), especially in field of urban traffic management, intersections monitoring is one of the critical and challenging tasks. Where, objects have different characteristics such as varying velocities, stop and go. Therefore it is necessary to use a hybrid scheme of adaptive background mixture model to learn background model faster and more accurately, instead of using single rate of adaptation, which is not adequate. The main focus of this paper is to analyze activities at intersection in number of traffic zones for counting and classifying vehicles and then tracking to extract traffic flows which assists in regulating traffic lights for using in smart cameras. Traffic zones definition in intersection video, based on trajectories clustering; greatly reduce the time and volume of computation. Smart camera's fundamental purpose is to efficiently reduce the transmission rate and also analyze an intersection scene and report statics and information of interest which is not an image. Ground-truth experiments with urban traffic sequences show that our proposed algorithm is very promising relative to results using other techniques. ©2010 IEEE.

License Plate Recognition system (LPR) plays a significant role in many application such as access control, traffic control, and the detection stolen vehicles. A LPR system can be divided into the detection and recognition stages. For license plate detection, a proposal method with to phase is used. At the first phase regions of around plate is clip out by help of vertical and horizontal projections. Next accurate location of plate is recognizing by connected component analysis and clustering techniques. Due to the positioning of vehicle towards the camera, the rectangular of license plate can be rotated and skewed in many ways. So skew detection and correction is requiring after plate detection. In this study an efficient method is proposed to skew detection and recognition. Zernike and wavelet moments features with rotation and scale invariant property are used to recognition of license plate characters. Proposed algorithms are robust to the different lighting condition, view angle, the position, size and color of the license plates when running in complicated environment. The overall performance of success for the license plate achieves 93.54% when the system is used to the license plate recognition in various conditions. © 2011 AICIT.

The shape of nanostructure has important effects on their properties, therefore in this study, we have prepared and characterized three different morphologies of WO3 nanostructures i.e. nanorod, nanosphere and nanoplate for surveying shape effect on their photocatalytic properties toward degradation of Rhodamine B (RhB) dye. Obtained results show that nanoplate WO3 in comparison with others has the best photocatalytic activity. According to SEM, and photocatalytic degradation results, the reason for this behavior is the sharp edges and corners of WO3 nanoplates. Because of their low coordination number, atoms located in the edges and corners of the WO3 nanoplates have more activity, adsorb more RhB and therefore give more photocatalytic activity to the WO3 nanoplates. Using of different scavengers showed that hydroxyl radicals are mainly responsible for photocatalytic activity of WO3 nanoplates and nanospheres but for WO3 nanorods, superoxide radicals are the main photocatalytic degradation agents. © 2015 Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

This In this paper we evaluate the impact of refresh intervals of OLSR protocol and adjusting initial RTO in TCP New Reno algorithm on the performance of MANETs containing 10 and 50 mobile nodes. HTTP low load traffic is used over the designed networks. Performances of the networks are measured in terms of network throughput, network delay, TCP delay, as well as HTTP object response time. Simulation results show that reducing TC interval time increases the network throughput significantly and decreases the network delay. But it also increases TCP delay and HTTP object response time. These two parameters are decreased when we adjust initial RTO time based on measured RTTs. © 2012 IEEE.
