Food quality is the quality properties of food that is acceptable by consumers. This includes important factors as appearance texture, and flavor. food consumers are affected to any form of contamination that may occur during the manufacturing process. Many consumer give importance to standards of processing and manufacturing, mainly to know what ingredients it contains, because of dietary, nutritional requirement, or medical conditions. Our proposed system may give the good quality management in food. It is based on many embedded sensors like thermostat, odour sensor, biosensor, pH sensor depending on out coming electric signals or digital value quality of the food should be determined. But the biosensor play a vital role to detect the bacterial contamination in food sample. Based on the combination of the sensor outputs quality of the food should be detected. © 2016 IEEE.

In recent days, our way of living has been changed more, lead to health consciousness, so health monitoring system is most important part of our life. In this proposed method, an RTOS based Wireless Sensor Network architecture has been developed for the health monitoring. One node acts as central and the others will be a slaves which are used for data acquisition. Data acquisition node uses the Peripheral Interface controller. Communication between two nodes are accomplished through IEEE 802.15. The RTOS is used to allocation resources to users in an orderly manner. The RTOS based technique is to reduce the possibility of collision. This is done by using ARM controller in KEIL and also OrCad tool for schematic design. © 2016 IEEE.


In this paper, a detailed investigation has been carried out to find out the impact of the process parameters including Tool rotational speed, welding direction at constant axial force and with a taper cylindrical pin profiled HSS tool during the Friction stir welding (FSW) of AZ31B magnesium alloy lap joints. This paper evaluates & examines in an elaborate manner, the influence of these FSW parameters in the microstructure & mechanical properties of AZ31B magnesium alloy. In short, AZ31B Mg alloys were friction stir welded by varying several different process parameters and the effects of these parameters on the joint quality, microstructure & mechanical properties were discussed comprehensively. This paper also experimentally proves & suggests the optimized process parameter values to be adopted for effective lap joining of AZ31B Magnesium alloys using FSW technique. © 2014 Published by Elsevier Ltd.


In this paper, the effects of axial force on the mechanical properties of AZ31B magnesium alloy flat plates during the Friction Stir Welding (FSW) process were investigated by carrying out the tensile tests as per the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) E8M-11 standards. The tensile test results indicated that the increase of the axial force greatly improved the tensile shear load (TSL) of the friction stir welded joints at a constant tool rotational speed of 800 rpm and welding speed of 50mm/min. Sound lap joints with low distortion, lack of cavity and high tensile strength were successfully obtained with an axial force of 5kN. However, the TSL of the friction stir welded joints decreased when the axial forces were 3kN and 4kN with the same constant tool rotational and welding speed. © (2014) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.

In the Present paper, the effects of axial force, rotational speed of the FSW tool, welding speed and shoulder penetration on various mechanical properties of Aluminium alloy 6063 butt joint produced by Friction Stir Welding have been analyzed. The mechanical properties ike tensile strength, Yield strength and % Elongation have been tested using 6 mm thickness plate. The tool used for conducting the experiment was Hot Die Steel (HDS). The welding quality can be improved by enhancing the mechanical properties and minimizing the defects. Hence, analysing & examining the mechanical or physical properties and other relevant significant factors would help to enhance the weld reliability. Tensile Strength (TS), Percentage of Elongation & Yield Strength (YS) of FSW Al 6063 alloy has been carried out under different processing condition using Taguchi's experimental design. An optimum result has been obtained using main effects plot using S/N ratio values. The rotation speed of the FSW tool has been found dominant factor for TS followed by feed and shoulder penetration. Shoulder diameter shows the least effect on TS compared to parameters like Percentage of Elongation & Yield Strength (YS). © (2014) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.

The conventional controller suffers from uncertain parameters and non-linear qualities of Quasi-Z Source converter. However they are computationally inefficient extending to optimize the fuzzy controller parameters, since they exhaustively search the optimal values to optimize the objective functions. To overcome this drawback, a PSO based fuzzy controller parameter optimization is presented in this paper. The PSO algorithm is used to find the optimal fuzzy parameters for minimizing the objective functions. The feasibility of the proposed PSO technique has been simulated and tested. The results are bench marked with conventional fuzzy controller and genetic algorithm for two types of DC/DC converters namely double input Z-Source converter and Quasi-Z Source converter. The results of both the DC/DC converters for several existing methods illustrate the effectiveness and robustness of the proposed algorithm. © 2014 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

This work presents a few important factors that affect the performance of a triangular pyramid solar still. An experimental work has been conducted to find the effect of water depth on the performance of the triangular pyramid solar still. From the present study, it is concluded that the convective and evaporative heat transfer coefficients are important for designing solar distillation systems and the effect of temperature difference between the evaporative and condensing surfaces is also important to optimize the operating temperature range. The condensing area of the solar still is more than that of evaporating area. Thus the experimental results showed that the effect of depth of water in the solar still affects the fresh water production. Nevertheless, outdoor experimental tests were conducted to study the effect of wind speed variations to cool down the glass cover. It was found that increasing the wind speed from 1.5 to 3. m/s and to 4.5. m/s has the effect of increasing the still productivity by 8 and 15.5% respectively. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.

Abstract The optimization is an important role in the wide geographical distribution of electrical power market, finding the optimum solution for the operation and design of power systems has become a necessity with the increasing cost of raw materials, depleting energy resources and the ever growing demand for electrical energy. Using adaptive real coded biogeography-based optimization (ARCBBO), we present the optimization of various objective functions of an optimal power flow (OPF) problem in a power system. We aimed to determine the optimal settings of control variables for an OPF problem. The proposed approach was tested on a standard IEEE 30-bus system and an IEEE 57-bus system with different objective functions. Simulation results reveal that the proposed ARCBBO approach is effective, robust and more accurate than current methods of power flow optimization in literature. © 2015 Elsevier Ltd.

In this paper, a production inventory model with defective items in which two levels of production are considered and it is possible that production started at one rate and after some time it may be switched over another rate such a situation is desirable in the sense that by starting at a low rate of production, a large quantum stock of manufacturing items at the initial stage is avoided, leading to reduction in the holding cost. A suitable mathematical model is developed and the optimal production lot size which minimizes the total cost is derived. The optimal solution is derived and an illustrative example is provided and numerically verified. The validation of result in this model was coded in Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0. © 2014 IEEE.
