INERTIA will introduce the Internet of Things/Services principles to the Distribution Grid Control and DSM Operations. It will provide an overlay network for coordination and active grid control, running on top of the existing grid and consisting of distributed and autonomous intelligent Commercial Prosumer Hubs. This way, it will address the present structural inertia of DG by introducing more active elements combined with the necessary control and distributed coordination mechanisms. Semantically enhanced DER (generation and consumption) will be the main constituents of the INERTIA active DG framework. DER will constitute active and flexible components carrying contextual knowledge of their local environment. DER will form dynamic clusters comprising self-organized networks of active nodes that will efficiently distribute and balance global and local intelligence. The DER self-organized overlay network will allow for seamless management and control of the active grid and the optimal exploration of single and aggregated prosumer capacity (generation and consumption) to participate in energy balancing and other DG related services. Global Operational & Technical Distrbution Grid parameters will be seamlessly and continuously translated into real-time Local DSM Strategies. INERTIA will offer fine grained control (equivalent or even higher than existing Direct Control Programmes) while also protecting privacy and autonomy on the local level, fully respecting prosumer preferences and needs. INERTIA will promote the efficient integration of flexible demand with distributed generation within the smart grid as the mean to tackle the problems resulting from the continuous and massive integration of distributed intermittent and non-controllable renewable sources. INERTIA will propose viable Business Models for flexible service-oriented contracts distributing potential benefits to all stakeholders involved in the DSM value chain

The vision of the PICASO project is that it will become a Europe-wide Continuum of Care service platform that: will improve cooperation and exchange of knowledge between professional caregivers in health, rehabilitation and social care domains and actively include patients and their relatives in the integrated care settings thus supporting patient empowerment and self-care; will bring about improvements in health outcomes, daily activities, and quality of life of older persons with multi-morbidities by personalising care management programmes to specific characteristics of the patients profiles and support adherence to care plans at the point of need; will reinforced medical knowledge and create new care models for management and treatment of patients with multi-morbidity conditions; will allow more cost-effective care management through increased skills and collaboration of care professionals and more automated and efficient workflows, which eventually will lead to better health outcome and a reduction in hospitals admissions, and thus contributing significantly to the sustainability of health and social care systems in Europe.

We provide a generalization of fuzzy concept lattices based on so-called weak Galois connections. Generalization is that instead of dually isomorphic closure systems we consider dually isomorphic retracts of complete lattices. We also give a generalization of the concept lattices with hedges, proposed by Bělohlávek and Vychodil, based on composition of interior operators with Galois connections. © 2012 Elsevier Inc.

This paper deals with the Bloch equations which are a set of macroscopic equations that are used for modeling of nuclear magnetization as a function of time. These equations were introduced by Felix Bloch in 1946 and they are used for a description of the Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR). This physical phenomenon is used in medicine, chemistry, physics, and engineering to study complex material. Fractional-order generalization of the Bloch equations was presented by Richard Magin et al. in 2008 as an opportunity to extend their use to describe a wider range of experimental situations involving heterogeneous, porous, or composite materials. In this paper we describe numerical and simulation models (created for Matlab/Simulink) of the classical and the fractional-order Bloch equations. The behaviour and stability analysis of the Bloch equations are presented as well. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

The article is focused on the actuator with one pneumatic artificial muscle and spring which counteracts the tensile force of the artificial muscle. Such a solution requires only one inlet and one outlet electromechanical pneumatic valve. It is suitable for the synthesis of so-called low cost bioservosystems. The paper presents mathematical description and static characteristics of individual parts of the actuator and also characteristics of the all mechanism. © (2014) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.
