The most important aspect of personalized content generation is obtaining the feedback from the learner. Behavioral modeling becomes an essential criteria to acquire feedback in the design of context aware e-learning systems. Behavioral Modeling involves identification of personal characteristics and particular circumstances of the individual learner. In this work, the semantic knowledge is acquired with ontologies to obtain the concepts, based on which the learning materials are delivered to the learners as a composed service comprising of content service, assessment service and profile service. The main objective of this work involves adoption of Topic modeling for behavioral identification focused towards providing personalized learning environment for each individual learner based on their characteristics by composing semantic web services. The results of the proposed system are evaluated with the proposed evaluation measures Trustworthiness, specificity and sensitivity. The obtained results of the system indicate that the proposed system for learner identification with topic modeling approach can be integrated with the e-learning to determine the hidden quality of the learners. © 2016 American Scientific Publishers All rights reserved.

The nonlinear optical (NLO) properties and optical limiting of an anthraquinone (Reactive blue 4) dye is studied in the low power regime utilizing a continuous wave (CW) diode laser at 635 nm with total power of 5 mW. The NLO parameters such as nonlinear index of refraction (n2) and nonlinear absorption coefficient (β) were determined respectively from closed (S = 0.4) and open (S = 1) aperture Z–scan technique. Self-defocusing and reverse saturable absorption are the nonlinear mechanisms were observed in the dye sample. The real and imaginary parts of the third-order nonlinear susceptibility (χ3) were estimated to be Re (χ3) = −2.12 × 10−5 esu and Im (χ3) = 1.85 × 10−6 esu. The optical limiting behaviors of reactive blue 4 dye at different concentrations were performed under experimental condition. Variation of transmitted laser spot size as a function of sample position at far field was also observed. The diffraction ring patterns were recorded in the present dye sample due to thermal lensing effect. With these experimental results the authors believed that, the dye investigated here is a potential material for NLO applications. © 2017 Springer Science+Business Media New York

Common mode voltage (CMV) and Circulating current (CC) minimization is one of the most important attentions in inverter fed drive. Diode-clamped multi-level inverter (MLI) enables higher output currents per phase, effectively increasing the power rating of the drive. Various switching operation in the inverter legs creates the better voltage profile and leads to the enabling of CMV and CC in the drive system. The induced CC flows between the apparatus neutral (N) to the supply ground (G) due to the existence of parasitic capacitance. This CC may cause potential danger especially when parasitic capacitance poses large. In the past, several conversion topologies and modulation techniques have been introduced with minimization of the circulation current. However, these techniques lead to complexity, high cost, low voltage profile and efficiency due to lower modulation parameters. This paper proposes PS, POD, PD carrier shifting PWM algorithms for diode clamped MLI to tumbling the circulating current within each phase of inverter legs. The performances of proposed algorithms, in terms of circulating current, total harmonic distortion, losses and efficiencies are analyzed theoretically. The theoretically analyses are validated via simulation and FPGA based experimental results.

Anaerobic digestion of solid food waste is considered as a perspective way for its disposal. The effect of total solids (5%, 10%, 15% and 20%) on the biogas production was investigated in the reactors with mesophilic temperature condition and hydraulic retention time of 30 d. The daily biogas production, cumulative biogas production, methane and carbon dioxide composition were measured. The volume of biogas produced was measured at regular intervals (24 h) using water displacement method. The experimental results show that the reactor with 10% of total solid content yielded higher biogas compared with other reactors. First-order reaction kinetics and modified Gompertz model were used for evaluating the kinetic study of process. The kinetic parameters were estimated for each reactor using MATLAB software. © 2017 Desalination Publications. All rights reserved.

In this paper, attempts have been made to model and optimize process parameters in Abrasive assisted Electro-Chemical Machining (AECM) of Aluminium-Boron carbide-Graphite composite using cylindrical copper tool electrodes with SiC abrasive medium. Optimization of process parameters is based on the statistical techniques with four independent input parameters such as voltage, current, reinforcement and feed rate were used to assess the AECM process performance in terms of material removal rate. The obtained results are compared with without abrasive assisted electro chemical machining of Aluminium-Boron carbide-Graphite composite. Abrasive assisted ECM process exhibited higher material removal rate from composite material when compared with without abrasive assisted ECM. © (2014) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.

Unconventional machining is increasing in importance due to some of the specific advantages which can be exploited during machining operation. Electrochemical machining (ECM) appears to be a promising technique in many areas of application. The present paper deals with the application of response surface methodology (RSM) to optimize the machining parameters with multiple responses in electrochemical machining (ECM) of 7075 Al/B4C metal matrix composites. Experiments were conducted on a METATECH ECM setup and L orthogonal array was chosen for the experiments. The electrochemical machining parameters, namely applied voltage, feed rate, and current content, were optimized based on multiple responses, i.e. material removal rate, and surface roughness. The optimum machining parameters were calculated using RSM and results were compared with ANOVA. The results show that feed rate and voltage are the most significant parameters which affect multiple machining responses simultaneously. Experimental results show that the responses in ECM can be improved effectively through this approach. © (2014) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.

Aluminium metal matrix composites (AMMCs) are now gaining their used in aerospace and automotive industries. Among many AMMCs, Aluminium metal matrix reinforced with Boron Carbide (B4C) is a novel composite. This composite is widely used in automotive industries (brake pads and brake rotor) due to high wear resistance, high strength to low weight ratio, elevated temperature toughness and high stiffness. Boron carbide shows exotic properties such as neutron absorbing compared to other reinforcements such as Al2O3 and SiC. In order to improve tribological characteristics of Al-B4C, the graphite is added as a solid lubricant. Due to the presence of hard ceramic reinforcement in metal matrix, it is very difficult to machining by conventional methods. Even nontraditional processes such as laser jet machining and electro discharge machining result in significant subsurface damage and heat affected zone to the work. Electrochemical machining (ECM) is an advanced machining process that is used for the machining of aerospace and automotive components, and dies and molds, etc. In order to increase the material removal rate and surface quality of the work, fine size abrasive particles are mixed with electrolyte. This abrasive particles working along with anodic dissolution can increase the material removal rate. © 2014 The Authors.

A new single-phase H-bridge multilevel inverter (MLI) topology constructed using auxiliary reverse-connected voltage sources along with a hybrid pulse width modulation (PWM) strategy is proposed, to extract a variable frequency variable amplitude output voltage. The principle eschews an astute philosophy to employ PWM approach only for a particular Hbridge that serves to produce the desired level while the remaining add-on modules function with the theory of fundamental switching. It involves the use of reduced number of switching devices for a specific number of output voltage levels in comparison with conventional MLIs. The design of the hybrid PWM suitable to power the appropriate switches add strength to its formulation in the sense it requires only either addition or subtraction to generate the square wave modulated pulses for the power devices in the other units other than that responsible for offering the preferred level of output voltage. The MATLAB R2010b-based simulated performance adequately validated through experimental results foresee the emergence of a new variety of MLIs and forge a different dimension for inverter interfaces in power control applications. © The Institution of Engineering and Technology 2014.

This paper attempts to construct a new hybrid multilevel dc-link inverter (MLDCLI) topology with a focus to synthesize a higher quality sinusoidal output voltage. The idea emphasizes the need to reduce the switch count considerably and thereby claim its superiority over the existing multilevel inverter (MLI) configurations. The structure incorporates a new module along with a differently used H-bridge that facilitates the increase in levels with much lower switch counts. The proposed dual bridge MLDCLI (DBMLDCLI) is evaluated using phase disposition (PD) multi-carrier pulse width modulation (MC-PWM) strategy in a filed programmable gate array (FPGA) platform. The MATLAB/System generator based simulation results validated through FPGA based prototype for a typical output level exhibit the drastic enhancement in the quality of output voltage. The total harmonic distortion (THD) obtained using a harmonic spectrum reveals the mitigation of the frequency components of output voltage other than the fundamental and paves the way to open a new avenue for nurturing innovative applications in this domain. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.

A series of 1-(1H-benzimidazol-2-yl)-3-substituted phenylprop-2-en-1-ylidene] amino}-1,3,4-thiadiazole-2-thiols (6a-6f) were synthesized by the acid catalyzed nucleophilic addition reaction between 1-(1H-benzimidazol-2-yl)-3-phenylprop-2-en-1-ones (4a-4f) and 5-amino-1,3,4-thiadiazole-2-thiol. All the synthesized compounds were characterised by IR, 1HNMR, 13CNMR, Mass and elemental analyses. A transition state calculation obtained from DFT study to explore the molecular mechanism of action of the synthetic route. The mechanism of synthesis revealed that the imidazole system can make an increase in the electrophilic character of carbonyl carbon in the benzimidazole chalcones. So the electron deficient carbonyl carbon could be efficiently attacked on the amino group of 1,3,4-thiadiazole ring to forms an imine linkage between the two heterocyclic systems. All the titled derivatives at a dose level of 10mg/kg body weight potentiate the hypnotic action of Phenobarbitone (at a dose of 10mg/kg body weight i.p.). The compounds such as 6b, 6a, and 6c showed a significant percentage increase in sleeping time relative to the control experiment 423.8, 387.6 and 329.5 respectively. The preclinical evaluation of the compounds was ascertained by blood-brain barrier, human oral absorption prediction and in silico toxicity assessment. © 2013 Bentham Science Publishers.
