In this study, a batch-type, nanoscale, zero-valent iron process was used to treat trichloroethylene wastewater. Variations in oxidation–reduction potential (ORP) and pH in the reactor were monitored online for use in developing the model for process control. After the addition of nanoscale, zero-valent iron, the pH value increased rapidly, from 5.0–6.0 to around 8.5–9.5, whereas the ORP decreased dramatically, from around 300 mV to −700 to −800 mV. The degradation of trichloroethylene reached equilibrium at a reaction time of about 120 min. The use of a dose of 1.5 g/L to treat an influent that had a trichloroethylene concentration of 50 mg/L resulted in a removal efficiency of 94 %. Two models, i.e., a multiple regression model and an artificial neural network (ANN) model, were used to develop the control model to predict the trichloroethylene removal efficiencies. Both the regression model and the ANN model performed precise prediction results for the trichloroethylene removal efficiencies, with correlation coefficients of about 0.87 and 0.98, respectively, resulting in great potential for controlling the trichloroethylene removal. © 2014, Islamic Azad University (IAU).

The present study utilized the capability of ambient-temperature plasma in modifying the surface properties of materials to activate the polyethylene terephthalate (PET) fiber surfaces. The effects of different plasma treatment parameters (such as plasma power, treatment time) and grafting parameters (such as grafting temperature, acrylic acid monomer concentration, grafting time) on the activation and grafting of the PET fibers were studied. The feasibility of applying ambient-temperature plasma combined with grafting technology for the preparation of ion exchangers in the heavy metal containing wastewater treatment was evaluated. © (2014) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.

In this study, an on-line Nephelopmetric turbidimeter connecting to a data acquisition unit was used to monitor the algal floes formation at various velocity gradient (or mixing energy, G in s -1) values. The results indicated that the standard deviations (SD) of the turbidities during the flocculation (slow mixing) period provide more information than the floc size. In addition, this on-line monitoring technique can be a simple and effective indicator to obtain an optimal G value for a flocculation process. Source

A power-conversion system for converting three-phase power into single-phase power is proposed in this paper. The proposed three-phase to single-phase (3φ/1φ) power-conversion system comprises a power converter, a zero-sequence transformer set, and a filter capacitor. The output currents of the power converter are divided into two parts. One is a set of positive-sequence sinusoidal currents, whose phases are in phase with the voltages of the three-phase power source. The positive-sequence sinusoidal currents are employed to absorb a real power from the three-phase power source. In addition, the power converter can perform the functions of three-phase balance, low harmonic distortion, and unity power factor when the single-phase load is used. The other is a set of zero-sequence currents, which will pass through the zero-sequence transformer set and build a single-phase voltage with high power quality for the single-phase load. Since the proposed 3φ/1φ power-conversion system contains only one power converter, it has the advantages of simplifying both the power circuit and control circuit. A prototype is developed and tested to demonstrate the performance of the proposed 3φ/1φ power-conversion system. The experimental results show that the proposed system can achieve the expected performance. © 2006 IEEE. Source

In a real-time information transmission and reception system, a transmission device includes a light emitter driven by a modulated control signal generated by a modulation controller based on a code sequence, which is encoded from an input signal generated by an input unit and corresponding to information to be transmitted, to emit light. The modulated control signal has a constant average power, and various frequencies greater than 60 Hz. A reception device includes a photoelectric sensor for sensing the light emitted by the light emitter to generate a current signal that is demodulated and processed to generate a data output corresponding to the information and received by a display unit for displaying the information thereon.
