Service quality management in microcloud-based Iot infrastructure

Rolik, Oleksandr, Telenyk, Sergii, Zharikov, Eduard
Article
2016
The Internet of Things (IoT) is an emergent technology that offers great opportunities to enhance economic indices and productivity of enterprises, to improve the quality of consumers’ lives, and to enable more efficient use of resources. In this paper, the authors propose an approach to Microcloud-based IoT infrastructure management to provide the desired quality of IT services with rational use of IT resources. Efficiency of IoT infrastructure management can be estimated by the quality of services and the management costs. The task of operational service quality management is to maintain a given level of service quality with the use of minimum IT resources in IoT environment. The proposed approach allows the efficient use of resources for IT services’ provision in IoT ecosystem through the implementation of service level coordination, resource planning and service level management processes in an integrated IT infrastructure management system.

Expert system supporting failure mode and effect analysis (FMEA)

Pytlik, Przemysław
Article
2016
The goal of this paper is to verify the usefulness of the expert system as a tool supporting the Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA). For the purpose of this study, a computer program acting as an expert system for FMEA has been implemented. The knowledge base of the expert system contains the medium voltage current transformer data. The Expert system structure, principle of operation and the data acquisition process were discussed. An expert system has been tested during the FMEA analysis of the medium voltage current transformer.

Proportional allocation method of the required bandwidth capacity for the user stations using the LTE technology

Haider, Al-Zayadi, Talib, Al-Sharify Mushtaq, Talib, AL-Sharify, Khlaponin, Yuriy, Karpinski, Mikolaj
Article
2016
The results of developing a method of distribution of the downlink frequency and time resources under the LTE technology were presented. The proposed method is aimed to ensure the quality of service of wireless for users by allocating the required user station capacity in the downlink. A comparative analysis of the proposed method was conducted with known solutions of the distribution of timefrequency resources of the LTE technology in terms of the overall performance of the downlink, the degree of balancing capacity, as well as the confidence level of allocating the required capacity to user stations.

Functional decomposition of combinational logic circuits with PKmin

Michalski, Tomasz, Kokosiński, Zbigniew
Article
2016
In this paper, an application of the PKmin program for functional decomposition of multiinput multi-output combinational circuits is presented. The main focus is on balanced multilevel decomposition of logic circuits into minimal number of blocks, such as LUTs in FPGAs. Reduction of the input redundancy is available. Decomposition schemes include parallel, joint/disjoint serial and a mixed one. The decomposition with PKmin can be automated by means of a heuristic algorithm or can be supervised by the designer. A distinctive feature of PKmin is the visualization of the design steps and the final layout of blocks and their interconnections. PKmin is compared in an example with the program DEMAIN.

Application of direct torque and power control to the wind turbine system with PMSG

Gajewski, Piotr, Pieńkowski, Krzysztof
Article
2016
The paper presents the wind energy conversion system with a direct driven Permanent Magnet Synchronous Generator (PMSG). The system consists of a wind turbine with a PMSG, the Machine Side Converter (MSC) and the Grid Side Converter (GSC). In order to control the MSC, the Direct Torque Control with Space Vector Modulation (DTC-SVM) has been applied. To achieve the maximum power from the wind turbine, the Maximum Power Point Tracking algorithm has been used. In order to control the GSC, the Direct Power Control with Space Vector Modulation (DPC-SVM) has been used. In order to obtain high power quality, the LCL grid filter has been used in the GSC. The performed simulation studies confirmed the high effectiveness of the Direct Torque and Direct Power control method.

Simulation study of a track circuit to determine the traffic parameters of a railway vehicle

Jakubas, Wiesław, Jaraczewski, Marcin, Mielnik, Ryszard
Article
2016
The article is about a range of issues concerning the possible use of track circuits, consisting of rail lines and impedance bonds for continuously monitoring traffic parameters of a rail vehicle moving within a separated track section. The solution to this problem may be useful in many applications and various types of rail traffic control systems that use track circuits as a source of information about the track block occupancy. One possible application may be in automatic railway crossing signalling systems (ARCS) for approach sections. In that application, the carried out measurement of the position and speed of a rail vehicle allows to determine a pre-warning time for the railway crossing.

Electrothermal analysis of start-up process in the squirrel cage induction motor using FEM

Barański, Mariusz
Article
2016
The paper presents a special algorithm and software for the analysis of coupled electromagnetic-thermal phenomena in a squirrel cage induction motor. In the proposed model the nonlinearity of the magnetic circuit, the movement of the rotor, the skewed slots and the influence of temperature on electrical and thermal properties of the materials have been taken into account. In order to verify the developed algorithm and software, the startup process of the motor has been examined, among others. The results of computations have been compared to the measurements.

The detection of coil shorting in induction motors by means of wavelet analysis

Zając, Mieczysław, Sułowicz, Maciej
Article
2016
This paper presents the results of an analysis of signals recorded in different inter-turn short- circuit states in the stator windings of a squirrel-cage motor operating under a constant load. The analysis was carried out in a time-frequency domain using a simple orthonormal wavelet base that can be used in a real system without the need to acquire specialist software. The choice of analytical was associated with the existence of a periodic energy flow between adjacent frequency bands, thus making it difficult to diagnose the Fourier analysis. The aim of the study was to gather data necessary for the development of a real-time diagnostic system. Magnetic axial flux, the zero voltage signal, the shortcircuit current, vibration acceleration, sound pressure, electromechanical torque, currents and phase voltages were tested as diagnostic criteria. The paper presents the main results of the analyses of magnetic axial flux signal and conclusions.

The low-frequency measuring method of voltage, current, power and signal processing application for compact PLC

Gębarowski, Tomasz, Jaraczewski, Marcin, Mielnik, Ryszard
Article
2016
This article presents the implementation of the low-frequency measuring method of current and voltage RMS values as well as active and reactive power of a two-terminal network, which is supplied by a sinusoidal voltage of 50 Hz. The implementation was made on a typical compact PLC-FX3G Mitsubishi Electric controller. This controller has a relatively low computing power, and when control tasks and measurements are performed simultaneously, the measurement method must be simple in order to match the limited computing power of the controller. This article describes how to implement the low-frequency measuring method onto the controller. It also presents the laboratory set for testing the controller and application. The paper also presents the results of measurements and calculations, in particular the impact of measurement time delays on errors of the RMS voltage and current values as well as active and reactive power values.
