U.S. Department of Energy, Illness and Injury Surveillance Program, Worker Health Summary, 1995-2004  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The Department of Energys (DOE) Illness and Injury Surveillance Program has created an opportunity to assess illness and injury rates and patterns among workers at participating sites for well over a decade. The Worker Health Summary introduces an additional perspective on worker health with the introduction of analyses comparing the experience of sites in different program offices and a focus on time trends covering a decade of worker illness and injury experience. These analyses by program office suggest that illness and injury patterns among National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) workers diverge in many ways from those seen among Environmental Management (EM) and Science workers for reasons not yet understood. These differences will receive further investigation in future special focus studies, as will other findings of interest. With the time depth now available in our data, the Worker Health Summary reveals an additional nuance in worker health trends: changing health patterns in a specialized and skilled but aging work force. Older workers are becoming an increasing percentage of the work force, and their absence rates for diseases such as diabetes and hypertension are increasing as well. The impact of these emerging health issues, if properly addressed, can be managed to maintain or even enhance worker health and productivity. Prevention strategies designed to reduce the toll of these health conditions appear warranted, and this report gives us an indication of where to focus them. The analyses that follow reflect the Illness and Injury Surveillance Programs continued commitment to apply a public health perspective in protecting the health of DOEs work force.

Reactive power compensating system  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

The reactive power of an induction machine is compensated by providing fixed capacitors on each phase line for the minimum compensation required, sensing the current on one line at the time its voltage crosses zero to determine the actual compensation required for each phase, and selecting switched capacitors on each line to provide the balance of the compensation required.

Movement of a GMTI radar during a coherent processing interval over which a set of radar pulses are processed may cause defocusing of a range-Doppler map in the video signal. This problem may be compensated by varying waveform or sampling parameters of each pulse to compensate for distortions caused by variations in viewing angles from the radar to the target.

Reactive Power Compensator.  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

A system and method for determining and providing reactive power compensation for an inductive load. A reactive power compensator (50,50') monitors the voltage and current flowing through each of three distribution lines (52a, 52b, 52c), which are supplying three-phase power to one or more inductive loads. Using signals indicative of the current on each of these lines when the voltage waveform on the line crosses zero, the reactive power compensator determines a reactive power compensator capacitance that must be connected to the lines to maintain a desired VAR level, power factor, or line voltage. Alternatively, an operator can manually select a specific capacitance for connection to each line, or the capacitance can be selected based on a time schedule. The reactive power compensator produces control signals, which are coupled through optical fibers (102/106) to a switch driver (110, 110') to select specific compensation capacitors (112) for connections to each line. The switch driver develops triggering signals that are supplied to a plurality of series-connected solid state switches (350), which control charge current in one direction in respect to ground for each compensation capacitor. During each cycle, current flows from ground to charge the capacitors as the voltage on the line begins to go negative from its positive peak value. The triggering signals are applied to gate the solid state switches into a conducting state when the potential on the lines and on the capacitors reaches a negative peak value, thereby minimizing both the potential difference and across the charge current through the switches when they begin to conduct. Any harmonic distortion on the potential and current carried by the lines is filtered out from the current and potential signals used by the reactive power compensator so that it does not affect the determination of the required reactive compensation. 26 figs.

Temperature compensated photovoltaic array  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

A temperature compensated photovoltaic module comprises a series of solar cells having a thermally activated switch connected in parallel with several of the cells. The photovoltaic module is adapted to charge conventional batteries having a temperature coefficient differing from the temperature coefficient of the module. The calibration temperatures of the switches are chosen whereby the colder the ambient temperature for the module, the more switches that are on and form a closed circuit to short the associated solar cells. By shorting some of the solar cells as the ambient temperature decreases, the battery being charged by the module is not excessively overcharged at lower temperatures. PV module is an integrated solution that is reliable and inexpensive. 2 figs.

Compensated pulsed alternator  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

This invention relates to an electromechanical energy converter with inertial energy storage. The device, a single phase, two or multi-pole alternator with stationary field coils, and a rotating armature is provided. The rotor itself may be of laminated steel for slower pulses or for faster pulses should be nonmagnetic and electrically nonconductive in order to allow rapid penetration of the field as the armature coil rotates. The armature coil comprises a plurality of power generating conductors mounted on the rotor. The alternator may also include a stationary or counterrotating compensating coil to increase the output voltage thereof and to reduce the internal impedance of the alternator at the moment of peak outout. As the machine voltage rises sinusoidally, an external trigger switch is adapted to be closed at the appropriate time to create the desired output current from said alternator to an external load circuit, and as the output current passes through zero a self-commutating effect is provided to allow the switch to disconnect the generator from the external circuit.

Parameter monitoring compensation system and method  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

A compensation system is described for a computer-controlled machining apparatus having a controller and including a cutting tool and a workpiece holder which are movable relative to one another along a preprogrammed path during a machining operation. It utilizes sensors for gathering information at a preselected stage of a machining operation relating to an actual condition. The controller compares the actual condition to a condition which the program presumes to exist at the preselected stage and alters the program in accordance with detected variations between the actual condition and the assumed condition. Such conditions may be related to process parameters, such as a position, dimension or shape of the cutting tool or workpiece or an environmental temperature associated with the machining operation, and such sensors may be a contact or a non-contact type of sensor or a temperature transducer. 7 figs.

Dynamic Drift Compensation for Heliostats  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract In central receiver solar power plants the accuracy of heliostat aiming affects directly the plant efficiency. This accuracy depends on multiple factors, some of which are alignment and operation parameters like: canting, pedestal leveling, elevation and zenith orientations, structural deformation, and clock-date timer accuracy to calculate solar position. All of those factors produce drift of the heliostat concentrated radiation spot. The error parameters differ from heliostat to heliostat in a field, and affect each one in a different manner, depending on their location in the field. Trying to compensate by software for every single error parameter, and for each heliostat is a hard, time consuming, and impractical task. Instead of that, a dynamic drift compensator may be used to fix the problem. This corrector works well for certain period of time, requiring a recalibration whenever the heliostat image shifts beyond the tolerance region. This method requires less effort, resulting in a practical solution to drift correction. This work reports on the implementation of a dynamic drift compensator based on a static third order polynomial function, at the Heliostat Test Field in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico. The results are compared to theoretical predictions based on error parameters for one heliostat.

Charge amplifier with bias compensation  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

An ion beam uniformity monitor for very low beam currents using a high-sensitivity charge amplifier with bias compensation. The ion beam monitor is used to assess the uniformity of a raster-scanned ion beam, such as used in an ion implanter, and utilizes four Faraday cups placed in the geometric corners of the target area. Current from each cup is integrated with respect to time, thus measuring accumulated dose, or charge, in Coulombs. By comparing the dose at each corner, a qualitative assessment of ion beam uniformity is made possible. With knowledge of the relative area of the Faraday cups, the ion flux and areal dose can also be obtained.

Theory of enthalpy-entropy compensation  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The ubiquitous nature of enthalpy-entropy compensation calls for a general model. The present model, which is formulated with compensation in ion exchange in mind, is an extension of an older general approach in that the molar fractions of the species that are exchanged in the process enter explicitly. In a different way, it is an extension to the theory of conformal solutions, which only leads to compensation under the condition of conformity. The present model allows one to decide from experiment whether interactions between exchanging species or interactions with third species (or external fields) are responsible for the compensation effect.

Dispersion compensation for attosecond electron pulses  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

We propose a device to compensate for the dispersion of attosecond electron pulses. The device uses only static electric and magnetic fields and therefore does not require synchronization to the pulsed electron source. Analogous to the well-known optical dispersion compensator, an electron dispersion compensator separates paths by energy in space. Magnetic fields are used as the dispersing element, while a Wien filter is used for compensation of the electron arrival times. We analyze a device with a size of centimeters, which can be applied to ultrafast electron diffraction and microscopy, and fundamental studies.

Multipurpose active/passive motion compensation system  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

A microprocessor-controlled active/passive motion compensation system has been developed for deploying a variety of geotechnical in-situ testing devices with mobile drilling rigs from low-cost service vessels. The light-weight rotary heave compensator incorporates a hydraulic motor as the compensator actuator and a servo-controlled closed loop pump to reduce the air storage and power requirements. Unique features of the system are the use of inertial sensors to measure three components of boat motion, the ability to run the system in active/passive or passive modes, and the ability to automatically lower the drillstring at a constant velocity while maintaining motion compensation. Quantitative measurements made during sea trials offshore California yielded motion compensation accuracy approaching 98 percent which is much better than the compensation achieved with passive systems. Results are presented from offshore in-situ testing with a cone penetrometer, a vane shear device, and a suspension PS logger. The system can also be used for other offshore applications.

Upon unloading after the forming stage a sheet metal product will spring back due to internal stresses. Springback is a major problem for process?planning engineers. In industrial practise deformations due to springback are compensated manually by doing extensive measurements on prototype parts and altering the tool geometry by hand. This is a time consuming and costly operation. In this paper the application of two compensation algorithms based on the finite element simulation of the forming process are discussed. The smooth displacement adjustment (SDA) method and the springforward (SF) method have been applied to several industrial products such as the NUMISHEET 2005 benchmark?1. With the SDA method successful compensations have been carried out. For the SF method some principal problems remain.

In addition to alternative activators of cortisol production, such as proinflammatory cytokines,, another explanation for hypercortisolemia in the presence of suppressed corticotropin could be reduced cortisol removal. The principal routes of cortisol clearance... This study shows that during critical illness, reduced cortisol breakdown, related to suppressed activity of cortisol-metabolizing enzymes, contributes to hypercortisolemia and hence corticotropin suppression, which may have clinical implications.

Laser focus compensating sensing and imaging device  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

A laser focus compensating sensing and imaging device permits the focus of a single focal point of different frequency laser beams emanating from the same source point. In particular it allows the focusing of laser beam originating from the same laser device but having differing intensities so that a low intensity beam will not convert to a higher frequency when passing through a conversion crystal associated with the laser generating device. The laser focus compensating sensing and imaging device uses a Cassegrain system to fold the lower frequency, low intensity beam back upon itself so that it will focus at the same focal point as a high intensity beam. An angular tilt compensating lens is mounted about the secondary mirror of the Cassegrain system to assist in alignment. In addition cameras or CCD's are mounted with the primary mirror to sense the focused image. A convex lens is positioned co-axial with the Cassegrain system on the side of the primary mirror distal of the secondary for use in aligning a target with the laser beam. A first alternate embodiment includes a Cassegrain system using a series of shutters and an internally mounted dichroic mirror. A second alternate embodiment uses two laser focus compensating sensing and imaging devices for aligning a moving tool with a work piece.

Magnetic Compensation in the Bimetallic Oxalates  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Bimetallic oxalates are layered molecule-based magnets with either ferromagnetic or antiferromagnetic interactions between transition metals M(II) and M'(III) on an open honeycomb lattice. Some Fe(II)Fe(III) bimetallic oxalates exhibit magnetic compensation (MC) at a compensation temperature Tcomp ? 30 K below the ferrimagnetic transition temperature Tc ? 45 K. To see if MC is possible in other bimetallic oxalates, we construct a theoretical model for bimetallic oxalates that exhibit antiferromagnetic interactions. By varying the M(II) and M'(III) average orbital angular momentum, which can be controlled by the choice of interlayer cations, we have found regions of MC in the families M(II)Mn(III) with M = Fe, Co, or Ni and V(II)M'(III) with M' = Cr or V but not in the family M(II)Ru(III) with M = Fe or Cu.

Compensation of heliostat drift by seasonal sampling  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Heliostat image drift is a common phenomenon in central receiver solar power plants. Several geometrical errors produce drift of the heliostat solar spot at receiver surface, increasing radiation spillage. A heuristic drift compensation method is proposed, based on a polynomial approximation to the drift trajectories. Results of the practical implementation of the proposed method for the control of 10 heliostats in a solar tower facility are presented. A substantial improvement of heliostat tracking is observed on the experimental tests. Because heliostat drift experimental monitoring is a time consuming task, a numerical analysis of the yearly behavior of the compensation method, based on simulations of heliostat drift, was carried out. In these simulations, the behavior of the daily RMS deviation of the concentrated solar spot centroid is evaluated for a whole year, as the polynomial correction is applied. The simulations serve also to test the effectiveness of the proposal polynomial method in a wider range of conditions. Thus, heliostats with a variety of primary error values are simulated. Random wind induced vibrations are introduced in the simulation to evaluate the effectiveness of the calibration method under noise conditions. It is found that a very effective calibration can be achieved with a few sampling events of the heliostat behavior during the year, taking only a few minutes. The RMS deviation can be reduced to values of the order of the wind induced noise level. The proposed polynomial compensation looks like a promising alternative to be implemented in heliostat fields.

Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Recovery Act  

Broader source: All U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office Webpages (Extended Search)

Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Recovery Act (CERCLA) Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Recovery Act (CERCLA) Congress passed the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA, also known as "Superfund") in response to a growing national concern about the release of hazardous substances from abandoned waste sites. Under CERCLA Congress gave the federal government broad authority to regulate hazardous substances, to respond to hazardous substance emergencies, and to develop long-term solutions for the Nation's most serious hazardous waste problems. CERCLA also created a Hazardous Substance Response Trust Fund, supported by an excise tax on feedstock chemicals and petroleum, to pay for cleanup activities at abandoned waste sites. In 1986 CERCLA was reauthorized and amended by the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA). SARA expanded the federal government's response authorities and clarified that federal facilities are subject to the same CERCLA requirements as private industry. The Community Environmental Response Facilitation Act of 1992 amended the CERCLA provisions dealing with federal activities on any real property owned by the government. It requires the federal government to identify those parts of that real property where no hazardous substance had been stored, released, or disposed of.

Compensating For Changes in MOS Sensors  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

AirAdvice provided the following introduction: AirAdvice uses metal oxide semiconductor (MOS) sensors for measuring total volatile organic compounds (TVOC) in air. These sensors are incorporated into AirAdvices indoor air quality (IAQ) monitors. The IAQ monitors are designed so that they require annual calibration to maintain acceptable accuracy. Since the MOS TVOC sensors used in the monitors change in sensitivity with time and exposure to gases, AirAdvice has developed an algorithm-based process that automatically compensates for changes in the sensors. The proposed project is to have PNNL analyze data provided by AirAdvice with these objectives: (1) assess how effective AirAdvices automatic drift correction process is, (2) identify any problems in the process, and (3) propose improvements to the process.

Error compensation in insertion-region magnets  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In heavy ion storage rings, intra-beam scattering (IBS) between high charge state ions results in a large beam emittance during storage. The ultimate machine performance depends on achieving the highest possible magnetic field quality and alignment accuracy in the insertion-region (IR) triplet magnets during low-{beta} operation when the beam size is the largest in the triplets. Therefore, effective compensation of magnet construction errors and misalignments is crucial. Heavy-ion beams (Au{sup 79+} will be accelerated and stored for 10 hours in the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at the energy of 100 GeV/u in two separated rings consisting of superconducting magnets. Due to strong IBS, the transverse beam emittance grows from 10{pi} mm-mr at injection to more than 40{pi} mm-mr at storage. Dipoles and riplets of quadrupoles of large bore are placed on both sides of the six interaction points (IP). In order to maximize the luminosity at two IPs with proposed experiments, the nearby triplets are designed to enable the collision {beta}-function to be reduced to {beta} = 1 m. Consequently, the rms transverse beam size becomes large at the triplets ({beta}{sub max} = 1400 m), increasing from {sigma} = 2.3 mm to 4.7 mm during the period of storage. At the end of storage, the 5{sigma} beam size becomes about 71% of the coil radius (65 mm). The goal if IR triplet error compensation is to ensure satisfactory magnetic field quality and beam long-term stability up to this 5{sigma} radius.

Motion compensation method for moving pictures with binary shape  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This paper describes a motion compensation method for arbitrarily shaped moving visual objects. To utilise both the inter-frame correlation and the texture-shape correlation, we use macroblock-based motion compensation for binary shape coding as well as texture coding. To efficiently achieve motion compensation for a moving binary shape, we introduce extra motion vectors for the shape coding in addition to the texture motion vectors, where the shape motion vectors are coded by referring to the texture motion vectors. The proposed method can successfully save more than 50% of the number of bits in comparison with the intra-only method. The effectiveness of the proposed method has been established through MPEG4 standardisation activity, and the proposed motion-compensation framework has been adopted by the MPEG-4 visual coding standard (ISO 14496-2).

Davies, Michael Spears, Agnes B. Lobscheid, William J. Fisk, and Michael G. Apte Journal Indoor Air Keywords carbon dioxide, Illness absence, indoor environmental quality, schools, ventilation Abstract Limited evidence associates inadequate classroom ventilation rates (VRs) with increased illness absence (IA). We investigated relationships between VRs and IA in Californiaelementary schools over two school years in 162 3rd-5th grade classrooms in 28 schools in three school districts: South Coast (SC), Bay Area (BA), and Central Valley (CV). We estimated relationships between daily IA and VR (estimated from real-time carbon dioxide) in zero-inflated negative binomial models. We also compared IA benefits and energy costs of increased VRs. All school districts had median VRs below the 7.1 L/sec-person California standard. For each additional 1 L/sec-person of VR, IA was reduced significantly (p<0.05) in models for combined districts (-1.6%) and for SC (-1.2%), and non-significantly for districts providing less data: BA (-1.5%) and CV (-1.0%). Assuming associations were causal and generalizable, increasing classroom VRs from the California average (4 L/sec-person) to the State standard would decrease IA by 3.4%, increase attendance-linked funding to schools by $33 million annually, and increase costs only $4 million. Further increasing VRs would provide additional benefits. These findings, while requiring confirmation, suggest that increasing classroom VRs above the State

Long-Range And Head-On Beam-Beam Compensation Studies in RHIC With Lessons for the LHC  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Long-range as well as head-on beam-beam effects are expected to limit the LHC performance with design parameters. They are are also important consideration for the LHC upgrades. To mitigate long-range effects, current carrying wires parallel to the beam were proposed. Two such wires are installed in RHIC where they allow studying the effect of strong long-range beam-beam effects, as well as the compensation of a single long-range interaction. The tests provide benchmark data for simulations and analytical treatments. Electron lenses were proposed for both RHIC and the LHC to reduce the head-on beam-beam effect. We present the experimental long-range beam-beam program at RHIC and report on head-on compensations studies based on simulations.

The ketamine effect on intracranial pressure in nontraumatic neurological illness  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

AbstractPurpose The purpose of the study was to perform a systematic review of the literature on the use of ketamine in nontraumatic neurological illness and its effects on intracranial pressure (ICP). Materials and methods Articles from MEDLINE, BIOSIS, EMBASE, Global Health, HealthStar, Scopus, Cochrane Library, the International Clinical Trials Registry Platform (inception to January 2014), and gray literature were searched. Two reviewers identified manuscripts on the administration of ketamine in nontraumatic neurological illness that recorded effects on ICP. The strength of evidence was adjudicated using the Oxford and Grading of Recommendation Assessment Development and Education (GRADE) methodology. Results Our search produced a total of 179 citations. Sixteen articles, 15 manuscripts, and 1 meeting proceeding were included in the review. Across all studies, there were 127 adult and 87 pediatric patients described. Intracranial pressure did not increase in any of the adult studies reporting premedication during ketamine administration, with 2 studies reporting a decrease in ICP. No significant nonICP-related adverse events from ketamine were recorded in any of the studies. Conclusions There exists Oxford level 2b, GRADE C evidence in adults and level 4, GRADE C in pediatrics to support that ketamine does not increase ICP in nontraumatic neurological illness when patients are sedated and ventilated, and in fact may lower it in selected cases.

DOE Patents [OSTI]

A count-rate compensating circuit is provided which may be used in a portable Geiger-Mueller (G-M) survey meter to ideally compensate for counting loss errors in the G-M tube detector. In a G-M survey meter, wherein the pulse rate from the G-M tube is converted into a pulse rate current applied to a current meter calibrated to indicate dose rate, the compensated circuit generates and controls a reference voltage in response to the rate of pulses from the detector. This reference voltage is gated to the current-generating circuit at a rate identical to the rate of pulses coming from the detector so that the current flowing through the meter is varied in accordance with both the frequency and amplitude of the reference voltage pulses applied thereto so that the count rate is compensated ideally to indicate a true count rate within 1% up to a 50% duty cycle for the detector. A positive feedback circuit is used to control the reference voltage so that the meter output tracks true count rate indicative of the radiation dose rate.

Influence of compensator thickness, field size, and off-axis distance on the effective attenuation coefficient of a cerrobend compensator for intensity-modulated radiation therapy  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) can be performed by using compensators. To make a compensator for an IMRT practice, it is required to calculate the effective attenuation coefficient (?{sub eff}) of its material, which is affected by various factors. We studied the effect of the variation of the most important factors on the calculation of the ?{sub eff} of the cerrobend compensator for 6-MV photon beams, including the field size, compensator thickness, and off-axis distance. Experimental measurements were carried out at 100 cm source-to-surface distance and 10 cm depth for the 6-MV photon beams of an Elekta linac using various field size, compensator thickness, and off-axis settings. The field sizes investigated ranged from 4 4 to 25 25 cm{sup 2} and the cerrobend compensator thicknesses from 0.56 cm. For a fixed compensator thickness, variation of the ?{sub eff} with the field size ranged from 3.76.8%, with the highest value attributed to the largest compensator thickness. At the reference field size of 10 10 cm{sup 2}, the ?{sub eff} varied by 16.5% when the compensator thickness was increased from 0.56 cm. However, the variation of the ?{sub eff} with the off-axis distance was only 0.99% at this field size, whereas for the largest field size, it was more significant. Our results indicated that the compensator thickness and field size have the most significant effect on the calculation of the compensator ?{sub eff} for the 6-MV photon beam. Therefore, it is recommended to consider these parameters when calculating the compensator thickness for an IMRT practice designed for these beams. The off-axis distance had a significant effect on the calculation of the ?{sub eff} only for the largest field size. Hence, it is recommended to consider the effect of this parameter only for field sizes larger than 25 25 cm{sup 2}.

Measurement and Compensation of BPM Chamber Motion in HLS  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Significant horizontal drifts in the beam orbit in the storage ring of HLS (Hefei Light Source) have been seen for many years. What leads to the motion of Beam Position Monitor (BPM) chamber is thermal expansion mainly caused by the synchrotron light. To monitor the BPM chamber motions for all BPMs, a BPM chamber motion measurement system is built in real-time. The raster gauges are used to measure the displacements. The results distinctly show the relation between the BPM chamber motion and the beam current. To suppress the effect of BPM chamber motion, a compensation strategy is implemented at HLS. The horizontal drifts of beam orbit have been really suppressed within 20{mu}m without the compensation of BPM chamber motion in the runtime.

Matrix Effects in Biological Mass Spectrometry Imaging: Identification and Compensation  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Matrix effects in mass spectrometry imaging (MSI) may affect the observed molecular distribution in chemical and biological systems. In this study, we introduce an experimental approach that efficiently compensates for matrix effects in nanospray desorption electrospray ionization (nano-DESI) MSI without introducing any complexity into the experimental protocol. We demonstrate compensation for matrix effects in nano-DESI MSI of phosphatidylcholine (PC) in normal and ischemic mouse brain tissue by doping the nano-DESI solvent with PC standards. Specifically, we use mouse brain tissue of a middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO) stroke model with an ischemic region localized to one hemisphere of the brain. Due to similar suppression in ionization of endogenous PC molecules extracted from the tissue and PC standards added to the solvent, matrix effects are eliminated by normalizing the intensity of the sodium and potassium adducts of endogenous PC to the intensity of the corresponding adduct of the PC standard. This approach efficiently compensates for signal variations resulting from differences in the local concentrations of sodium and potassium in tissue sections and from the complexity of the extracted analyte mixture derived from local variations in molecular composition.

Phase compensated gas turbine governor for damping oscillatory modes  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

With market deregulation, there is constant pressure to utilise existing assets in more effective ways in order to achieve high levels of performance and as governor technologies mature the ability of governors to achieve much more than the standard powerfrequency regulation function increases. Thus, this paper has focused on a more active use of governor control for a gas turbine to provide improved system stabilisation and performance via the inclusion of phase compensation in the governor control loop. Due to the decoupled nature of the mechanical power and excitation control loops, performance improvement via governor control does not interfere with generator voltage regulation, which is a drawback of conventional generator damping provision via a power system stabiliser (PSS). In addition, the mechanical power control loop is also less affected by the operating condition of the power system and is hence more robust. It is shown that inclusion of appropriate phase compensation in the governor control loop can improve dynamic and transient stability, either alone or in conjunction with a PSS in the exciter control loop, without adversely interfering with voltage control or changing steady state powerfrequency regulation.

COMPENSATION OF DETECTOR SOLENOID IN SUPER-B  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The SUPER-B detector solenoid has a strong 1.5 T field in the Interaction Region (IR) area, and its tails extend over the range of several meters. The main effect of the solenoid field is coupling of the horizontal and vertical betatron motion which must be corrected in order to preserve the small design beam size at the Interaction Point. The additional effects are orbit and dispersion caused by the angle between the solenoid and beam trajectories. The proposed correction system provides local compensation of the solenoid effects independently for each side of the IR. It includes 'bucking' solenoids to remove the solenoid field tails and a set of skew quadrupoles, dipole correctors and anti-solenoids to cancel linear perturbations to the optics. Details of the correction system are presented.

Electric vehicle drive train with rollback detection and compensation  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

An electric vehicle drive train includes a controller for detecting and compensating for vehicle rollback, as when the vehicle is started upward on an incline. The vehicle includes an electric motor rotatable in opposite directions corresponding to opposite directions of vehicle movement. A gear selector permits the driver to select an intended or desired direction of vehicle movement. If a speed and rotational sensor associated with the motor indicates vehicle movement opposite to the intended direction of vehicle movement, the motor is driven to a torque output magnitude as a nonconstant function of the rollback speed to counteract the vehicle rollback. The torque function may be either a linear function of speed or a function of the speed squared.

Study of space charge compensation phenomena in charged particle beams  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The propagation of a charged particle beam is accompanied by the production of secondary particles created in the interaction of the beam itself with the background gas flowing in the accelerator tube. In the drift region, where the electric field of the electrodes is negligible, secondary particles may accumulate giving a plasma which shields the self-induced potential of the charged beam. This phenomenon, known as space charge compensation is a typical issue in accelerator physics, where it is usually addressed by means of 1D radial transport codes or Monte Carlo codes. The present paper describes some theoretical studies on this phenomenon, presenting a Particle in Cell-Monte Carlo (PIC-MC) Code developed ad hoc where both radial and axial confinements of secondary particles are calculated. The features of the model, offering a new insight on the problem, are described and some results discussed.

Compensation of flare-induced CD changes EUVL  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

A method for compensating for flare-induced critical dimensions (CD) changes in photolithography. Changes in the flare level results in undesirable CD changes. The method when used in extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography essentially eliminates the unwanted CD changes. The method is based on the recognition that the intrinsic level of flare for an EUV camera (the flare level for an isolated sub-resolution opaque dot in a bright field mask) is essentially constant over the image field. The method involves calculating the flare and its variation over the area of a patterned mask that will be imaged and then using mask biasing to largely eliminate the CD variations that the flare and its variations would otherwise cause. This method would be difficult to apply to optical or DUV lithography since the intrinsic flare for those lithographies is not constant over the image field.

Dead-time compensation for a logarithmic display rate meter  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

An improved circuit is provided for application to a radiation survey meter that uses a detector that is subject to dead time. The circuit compensates for dead time over a wide range of count rates by producing a dead-time pulse for each detected event, a live-time pulse that spans the interval between dead-time pulses, and circuits that average the value of these pulses over time. The logarithm of each of these values is obtained and the logarithms are subtracted to provide a signal that is proportional to a count rate that is corrected for the effects of dead time. The circuit produces a meter indication and is also capable of producing an audible indication of detected events.

Subsynchronous torsional interactions with static VAR compensators; Influence of HVDC  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Planning for installation of a static var compensator (SVC) in Chester, Maine, was initiated in 1987. The pre-specification subsynchronous torsional interaction (SSTI) studies showed the SVC might have a negative influence on stability of torsional modes of vibration of the nearby turbine-generators. In a previous paper, the parameters influencing the level of SSTI were identified with the use of a simple system. This paper extends the work to power systems containing an HVDC transmission system. The combined effect of SVC and HVDC on turbine-generator SSTI is investigated with the use of a hypothetical system. Simulation plots for the large machines of New Brunswick and Maine are included to quantify the level of interaction with the Chester SVC. Filtering as a mitigation measure is proposed to eliminate the small level of SSTI attributed to the Chester SVC.

Calculation of the electron structure of vacancies and their compensated states in III-VI semiconductors  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The Green's functions theory and the bond-orbital model are used as a basis for calculations of the electron structure of local defects-specifically, vacancies and their compensated states in III-VI semiconductors. The energy levels in the band gap are established, and the changes induced in the electron densities in the GaS, GaSe, and InSe semiconductors by anion and cation vacancies and their compensated states are calculated. It is established that, if a vacancy is compensated by an atom of an element from the same subgroup with the same tetrahedral coordination and if the ionic radius of the compensating atom is smaller than that of the substituted atom, the local levels formed by the vacancy completely disappear. It is shown that this mechanism of compensation of vacancies provides a means not only for recovering the parameters of the crystal, but for improving the characteristics of the crystal as well.

Smoothing of respiratory motion traces for motion-compensated radiotherapy  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Purpose: The CyberKnife system has been used successfully for several years to radiosurgically treat tumors without the need for stereotactic fixation or sedation of the patient. It has been shown that tumor motion in the lung, liver, and pancreas can be tracked with acceptable accuracy and repeatability. However, highly precise targeting for tumors in the lower abdomen, especially for tumors which exhibit strong motion, remains problematic. Reasons for this are manifold, like the slow tracking system operating at 26.5 Hz, and using the signal from the tracking camera ''as is''. Since the motion recorded with the camera is used to compensate for system latency by prediction and the predicted signal is subsequently used to infer the tumor position from a correlation model based on x-ray imaging of gold fiducials around the tumor, camera noise directly influences the targeting accuracy. The goal of this work is to establish the suitability of a new smoothing method for respiratory motion traces used in motion-compensated radiotherapy. The authors endeavor to show that better prediction--With a lower rms error of the predicted signal--and/or smoother prediction is possible using this method. Methods: The authors evaluated six commercially available tracking systems (NDI Aurora, PolarisClassic, Polaris Vicra, MicronTracker2 H40, FP5000, and accuTrack compact). The authors first tracked markers both stationary and while in motion to establish the systems' noise characteristics. Then the authors applied a smoothing method based on the a trous wavelet decomposition to reduce the devices' noise level. Additionally, the smoothed signal of the moving target and a motion trace from actual human respiratory motion were subjected to prediction using the MULIN and the nLMS{sub 2} algorithms. Results: The authors established that the noise distribution for a static target is Gaussian and that when the probe is moved such as to mimic human respiration, it remains Gaussian with the exception of the FP5000 and the Aurora systems. The authors also showed that the proposed smoothing method can indeed be used to filter noise. The signal's jitter dropped by as much as 95% depending on the tracking system employed. Subsequently, the 3D prediction error (rms) for a prediction horizon of 150 ms on a synthetic signal dropped by up to 37% when using a normalized LMS prediction algorithm (nLMS{sub 2}) and hardly changed when using a MULIN algorithm. When smoothing a real signal obtained in our laboratory, the improvement of prediction was similar: Up to 30% for both the nLMS{sub 2} and the best MULIN algorithm. The authors also found a noticeable increase in smoothness of the predicted signal, the relative jitter dropped by up to 95% on the real signal, and on the simulated signal. Conclusions: In conclusion, the authors can say that preprocessing of marker data is very useful in motion-compensated radiotherapy since the quality of prediction increases. This will result in better performance of the correlation model. As a side effect, since the prediction of a preprocessed signal is also less noisy, the authors expect less robot vibration resulting in better targeting accuracy and less strain on the robot gears.

Development of a straightness measurement and compensation system with multiple right-angle reflectors and a lead zirconate titanate-based compensation stage  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This paper presents a real-time straightness measurement and compensation system with an optical straightness measurement system and a single-axis flexure-hinge type lead zirconate titanate (PZT)-based compensation stage. The optical straightness measurement system consists of a He-Ne laser, a quadrant photodiode detector, and five right-angle reflectors. Multiple laser beam reflections between the right-angle reflectors increase the sensitivity of the straightness measurement by a factor of 6. The right-angle reflectors can be moved by the flexure-hinge type PZT-based compensation stage that is actuated by a PZT actuator to ensure that the laser beam is always projected onto the center of the quadrant detector. These two systems are integrated and fixed on a scanning stage. The resolution of the straightness measurement system is 0.1 {mu}m. Using the real-time straightness compensation system, the straightness error of the scanning stage is fed back to the control system. The compensated straightness error of the scanning stage system was reduced from 6.5 {mu}m to less than 1 {mu}m.

24-SEMA as a sensitive and offset compensated SLF sequence  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Separated Local Field (SLF) spectroscopy is a powerful tool for the determination of structure and dynamics of oriented systems such as membrane proteins oriented in lipid bilayers and liquid crystals. Of many SLF techniques available, Polarization Inversion Spin Exchange at Magic Angle (PISEMA) has found wide application due to its many favorable characteristics. However the pulse sequence suffers from its sensitivity to proton resonance frequency offset. Recently we have proposed a new sequence named 24-SEMA (J. Chem. Phys. 132 (2010) 134301) that overcomes this problem of PISEMA. The present work demonstrates the advantage of 24-SEMA as a highly sensitive SLF technique even for very large proton offset. 24-SEMA has been designed for obtaining reliable dipolar couplings by switching the magic-angle spin-lock for protons over four quadrants as against the use of only two quadrants in PISEMA. It is observed that for on-resonance condition, 24-SEMA gives rise to signal intensity comparable to or slightly higher than that from PISEMA. But under off-resonance conditions, intensities from 24-SEMA are several fold higher than those from PISEMA. Comparison with another offset compensated pulse sequence, SAMPI4, also indicates a better intensity profile for 24-SEMA. Experiments carried out on a single crystal of 15N labeled N-acetyldl-valine and simulations have been used to study the relative performance of the pulse sequences considered.

These methods are: 1) individually addressable array elements; 2) digital-to-analog converters for the source signals; 3) inverse filtering from source precompensation; and 4) spectral extrapolation to expand the bandwidth of the received signals. The components of the system will be used as follows: 1) The individually addressable array allows scanning around and over an object, such as a human breast, without any moving parts. The elements of the array are broad bandwidth elements and efficient radiators, as well as detectors. 2) Digital-to-analog converters as the source signal generators allow virtually any radiated field to be created in the half-space in front of the array. 3) Preprocessing allows for corrections in the system, most notably in the response of the individual elements and in the ability to increase contrast and resolution of signal propagating through the medium under investigation. 4) Postprocessing allows the received broad bandwidth signals to be expanded in a process similar to analytic continuation. Used together, the system allows for compensation to create beams of any desired shape, control the wave fields generated to correct for medium differences, and improve contract and resolution in and through the medium.

Principle and characteristics of a fault current limiter with series compensation  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

A fault current limiter with series compensation, which is composed of a compensation capacitor and a limiting reactor in series, is proposed. A solid-state switch connected in parallel with the capacitor controls either the ordinal series compensation or fault current limitations. A feasibility study of the current limiter by simulation analysis is presented and the effectiveness of the current limiter is evaluated from the viewpoints of transient stability improvement and device capacity. The current limiter is a useful protection device for large, high power transmission systems.

On the compensation mechanism of amorphous silicon films: Study of stability  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The authors investigated a-Si:H compensated materials deposited over a wide range of gas dopant concentrations, from 0.125 ppm up to 10{sup 3} ppm. They achieved compensation for different ratio in the gas phase of diborane and phosphine, depending on their concentration. As a relevant result, they found that at constant boron concentration compensation occurs by using two different values of phosphine flow. This behavior can be described by a change of formation mechanism involving active dopants, defects and boron-phosphorus complex, that occurs in a different way depending on the dopant concentrations. The two compensation regimes are evidenced also by a different behavior under light soaking. Furthermore they found that photocurrent evolution under illumination is determined by two concurrent mechanisms: activation of dopant species and increase of defect density.

Impacts of dynamic reactive power compensation devices on the performance of wind power generators  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This paper investigates the main impacts of dynamic reactive power compensation devices on the performance of induction machine-based wind power generators. The dynamic reactive power compensation devices analysed are the SVC (Static Var Compensator) and the DSTATCOM (Distributed Static Synchronous Compensator). The usage of these devices as a power factor regulator or a voltage regulator is investigated. The technical factors analysed are small-signal voltage stability, transient stability and interactions with the anti-islanding protection system. The analyses are carried out by using a wind farm composed of 30 units of 1 MW induction generators. Such wind farm is connected to a 60 Hz, 33 kV distribution system. The results are a useful guideline to evaluate which control strategy and device are suitable for a determined application as well as to understand the dynamic interactions that can occur.

Apparatus and method for compensating for clock drift in downhole drilling components  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

A precise downhole clock that compensates for drift includes a prescaler configured to receive electrical pulses from an oscillator. The prescaler is configured to output a series of clock pulses. The prescaler outputs each clock pulse after counting a preloaded number of electrical pulses from the oscillator. The prescaler is operably connected to a compensator module for adjusting the number loaded into the prescaler. By adjusting the number that is loaded into the prescaler, the timing may be advanced or retarded to more accurately synchronize the clock pulses with a reference time source. The compensator module is controlled by a counter-based trigger module configured to trigger the compensator module to load a value into the prescaler. Finally, a time-base logic module is configured to calculate the drift of the downhole clock by comparing the time of the downhole clock with a reference time source.

Generation kinetics of boron-oxygen complexes in p-type compensated c-Si  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Kinetics characteristics of boron-oxygen complexes responsible for light-induced degradation in p-type compensated c-Si have been investigated. The generation of B-O complexes is well fitted by a fast-forming process and a slow-forming one. Activation energies of complexes generation during the fast-forming process are determined to be 0.29 and 0.24?eV in compensated and non-compensated c-Si, respectively, and those during the slow-forming process are the same, about 0.44?eV. Moreover, it is found that the pre-exponential factors of complexes generation in compensated c-Si is proportional to the square of the net doping concentration, which suggests that the latent centers should exist.

Facility siting and compensation: Lessons from the Massachusetts experience  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In 1980, Massachusetts enacted a unique and comprehensive process for siting hazardous waste facilities. No facility has been constructed or approved since then, however, so it seems appropriate to ask whether the process was fundamentally flawed in concept, implemented imperfectly, or whether some other lesson can be drawn. The authors of this study were closely involved with the legislation at its inception, and Sanderson has stayed involved with it professionally, most recently as manager of the Clean Harbors project. In this essay they combine analysis and memoir to examine the reasons why the Massachusetts siting process has not yet delivered a facility. They argue that the critical factors were both specific design defects of the law itself and general characteristics of the Massachusetts public decisionmaking process. The Massachusetts negotiated compensation model of facility siting is so complicated in practice, and so contingent on local factors, that no one can judge confidently whether it is on the whole hopeless, flawed but correctable, or merely unlucky. We believe its principal liability is that it offers two fatal temptations: to public officials, it appears to offer an alternative to taking leadership risks; and to frightened citizens, it appears to offer a way to avoid, rather than confront and control, physical risks and anxiety. Specific features of the process - its complexity, the inherent delay, the unfortunate design of the siting council - might be corrected with good effect. But we see larger and more pervasive forces as the real obstacle. The NIMBY problem is, at heart, symptomatic of the pessimistic expectations; raising those expectations is not a task that can be accomplished by any legislated decision process. 4 refs., 1 tabs.

Compensation for L212GLU in bacterial reaction centers  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In wild-type bacterial reaction centers (RC), residue L212Glu, which is located about 5 {Angstrom} away from Q{sub B}, is involved in the delivery of the second proton to Q{sub B{sup 2}{minus}} [1-4]. We previously constructed the L212Glu-L213Asp {yields} Ala-Ala double mutant of Rhodobacter capsulatus, and it is incapable of photosynthetic growth (PS{sup {minus}}) due to interruption of the proton transfer pathway to Q{sub B}[3,4]. We have isolated several photocompetent (PS{sup +}) phenotypic revertants of this L212-L213AA double mutant [3-7]. The compensatory mutations that restore function in these strains are diverse and show that neither L212Glu nor L213Asp is absolutely required for efficient light-induced electron or proton transfer. Genotypic revertant and second-site mutations, located within the Q{sub B} binding picket or at more distant sites, can compensate for mutations at L212 and L213 to restore photocompetence. One of the phenotypic revertants of the L212Ala-L213Ala double mutant carries a genotypic reversion of L213Ala to Asp; the Ala substitution at L212 remains. We were intrigued that this L212Glu {yields} Ala mutant R. capsulatus is photocompetent, while the L212Glu {yields} Gln mutant of R. sphaeroides is not, particularly since the sequence identity in the Q{sub B} site of these two strains is 90{percent} [8]. To this end, we constructed the L212Glu {yields} Gln mutant in R. capsulatus, and it is also PS{sup {minus}}. To determine the function that is lost in the L212Gln mutant but restored by Ala at that site, we selected four PS{sup +} revertants from the L212Gln strain.

Crosstalk Compensation for a Rapid, Higher Resolution Impedance Spectrum Measurement  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Batteries and other energy storage devices are playing larger roles in various industries (e.g., military, automotive, electric utilities, etc.) as the U.S. seeks to reduce its dependence on foreign energy resources. As such, there exists a significant need for accurate, robust state-of-health assessment techniques. Present techniques tend to focus on simple, passive monitoring of voltage and current at a given ambient temperature. However, this approach has the disadvantage of ignoring key elements of health, that is, changes in resistance growth and power fade. Impedance spectroscopy is considered a useful laboratory tool in gauging changes in the resistance and power performance, but it has not been widely considered as an onboard diagnostic tool due to the length of time required to complete the measurement. Cross-Talk Compensation (CTC) is a novel approach that enables rapid, high resolution impedance spectra measurements using a hardware platform that could be designed as an embedded system. This input signal consists of a sum-of-sines excitation current that has a known frequency spread and a duration of one period of the lowest frequency. The voltage response is then captured at a sufficiently fast sample rate. Previously developed rapid impedance spectrum measurement techniques either required a longer excitation signal or a sum-of-sines signal that was separated by harmonic frequencies to reduce or eliminate, respectively, the cross-talk interference in the calculated results. The distinct advantage of CTC, however, is that non-harmonic frequencies can now be included within the excitation signal while still keeping the signal duration at one period of the lowest frequency. Since the frequency spread of the input signal is known, the crosstalk interference between sinusoidal signals within the sum-of-sines at a given frequency of interest can be pre-determined and assigned to an error matrix. Consequently, the real and imaginary components of the impedance at each frequency of interest can be calculated using simple linear algebra based on the error matrix and measured response from the energy storage device given the excitation signal. Analytical validation of CTC over a frequency range between 2000 and 0.1 Hz (i.e., a ten-second input signal duration) was performed using a standardized battery lumped parameter model. The results indicated that the CTC was able to successfully resolve more than 45 frequencies within a sum-of-sines excitation signal, whereas previous techniques could only resolve up to 15 frequencies. A simplified derivation of the CTC technique and its corresponding analytical validation studies using the lumped-parameter model will be presented.

Generic temperature compensation of biological clocks by autonomous regulation of catalyst concentration  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Circadian clocks ubiquitous in life forms ranging bacteria to multi-cellular organisms, often exhibit intrinsic temperature compensation; the period of circadian oscillators is maintained constant over a range of physiological temperatures, despite the expected Arrhenius form for the reaction coefficient. Observations have shown that the amplitude of the oscillation depends on the temperature but the period does not---this suggests that although not every reaction step is temperature independent, the total system comprising several reactions still exhibits compensation. We present a general mechanism for such temperature compensation. Consider a system with multiple activation energy barriers for reactions, with a common enzyme shared across several reaction steps with a higher activation energy. These reaction steps rate-limit the cycle if the temperature is not high. If the total abundance of the enzyme is limited, the amount of free enzyme available to catalyze a specific reaction decreases as more substra...

Performance of distance relay MHO elements on MOV-protected series-compensated transmission lines  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The results presented in this paper show that the applicability of memory-polarized distance relay mho elements in the protection of MOV-protected series-compensated lines in dependant on the system configuration, line loading, the location of the potential source, and the magnitude of memory polarization. For configuration with compensation at one end of a line, the results indicate certain advantages in using the potential from the line side of the capacitor, and the use of relatively large magnitude of memory polarization. The presence of a conducting MOV enhances the performance of the mho element both in terms of security on reverse faults and dependability on forward faults.

Research on the compensation of the end loss effect for parabolic trough solar collectors  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract In this paper, an optical analysis on the end loss effect of parabolic trough solar collector (PTC) with horizontal northsouth axis (PTC-HNSA) is performed, and a method to compensate its end loss effect is presented. The calculation formulae for the optical end loss ratio and the increased optical efficiency (the optical collection efficiency increment of PTC system after this compensation method is used) are derived; the daily optical end loss ratio, yearly optical end loss ratio, daily increased optical efficiency and yearly increased optical efficiency in different latitudes are calculated; the variation of optical end loss ratio and increased optical efficiency with troughs length and latitude angles are analyzed and discussed. It is indicated through the analyses that this compensation method is very applicable for regions with the latitude over 25 (especially over 30) and short trough collectors. In order to verify the feasibility of the compensation method, a five-meter PTC-HNSA experimental system was built. The increased thermal efficiency of the experimental system is measured, and the result that the experimental value (increased thermal efficiency) substantially agreed with the theoretical value (increased optical efficiency) is gained. All these works can offer some valuable references to the further study on high-efficiency trough solar concentrating systems.

On compensating tune spread induced by space charge in bunched beams  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Space charge effects play significant role in modern-day accelerators. These effects frequently constrain attainable beam parameters in an accelerator, or, in an accelerator chain. They also could limit the luminosity of hadron colliders operating either at low energies or with a sub-TeV high brightness hadron beams. The latter is applied for strongly cooled proton and ion beams in eRHIC the proposed future electron-ion collider at Brookhaven National Laboratory. A number of schemes for compensating space charge effects in a coasting (e.g. continuous) hadron beam were proposed and some of them had been tested. Using a proper transverse profile of the electron beam (or plasma column) for a coasting beam would compensate both the tune shift and the tune spread in the hadron beam. But all of these methods do not address the issue of tune spread compensation of a bunched hadron beam, e.g. the tune shift dependence on the longitudinal position inside the bunch. In this paper we propose and evaluate a novel idea of using a co-propagating electron bunch with miss-matched longitudinal velocity to compensate the space charge induced tune-shift and tune spread. We present a number of practical examples of such system.

Artificial neural network-based error compensation procedure for low-cost encoders  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

An artificial neural network-based error compensation method is proposed for improving the accuracy of resolver-based 16-bit encoders by compensating for their respective systematic error profiles. The error compensation procedure, for a particular encoder, involves obtaining its error profile by calibrating it on a precision rotary table, training the neural network by using a part of these data and then determining the corrected encoder angle by subtracting the ANN-predicted error from the measured value of the encoder angle. Since it is not guaranteed that all the resolvers will have exactly similar error profiles because of the inherent differences in their construction on a micro scale, the ANN has been trained on one error profile at a time and the corresponding weight file is then used only for compensating the systematic error of this particular encoder. The systematic nature of the error profile for each of the encoders has also been validated by repeated calibration of the encoders over a period of time and it was found that the error profiles of a particular encoder recorded at different epochs show near reproducible behaviour. The ANN-based error compensation procedure has been implemented for four encoders by training the ANN with their respective error profiles and the results indicate that the accuracy of encoders can be improved by nearly an order of magnitude from quoted values of ? 6 arc-min to ? 0.65 arc-min when their corresponding ANN-generated weight files are used for determining the corrected encoder angle.

Specific features of self-compensation in Er{sub x}Sn{sub 1-x}Se solid solutions  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The effect of doping and degree of compensation on the conductivity activation energy {Delta}E{sub i} in Er{sub x}Sn{sub 1-x}Se has been investigated. The carrier concentration decreases at a low doping level in the case of low and moderate compensations. It is found that, beginning with x {>=} 0.005 at % Er, carriers in the solid solutions under study change sign, depending on the amount of substituted erbium in the SnSe samples that is in equilibrium with the selenium phase. This phenomenon can be explained in terms of the concepts of the self-compensation of donors in the Sn sublattice.

Total compensation of line-side switching harmonics in converter-fed ac locomotives  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

PWM controlled line-side converters of modern ac traction locomotives inject harmonic currents into the feeding overhead line. This causes problems of electromagnetic interference. Passive or active filters are usually provided for a partial reduction of the line harmonics. A novel and superior approach employs a switched electronic compensator. It generates an exact replica of the harmonic current, feeding it to the high-voltage transformer to produce a harmonic counter MMF. The transformer main flux is then forced to be sinusoidal, and so is the induced voltage in the primary. The line current, being low-pass filtered by the transformer leakage inductance, assumes a pure sinusoidal waveform. The compensator operates in the low switching frequency range of the main power converters. Its installed power is only 1% of the traction power. Operation, control, and design considerations are described. Results from laboratory tests at full power level are presented.

Stability analysis and reactive power compensation issue in a microgrid with a DFIG based WECS  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This paper presents a novel methodology for compensating reactive power in a microgrid, having a DFIG based winddiesel system, to enhance the voltage stability of the hybrid system. UPFC as a FACTS device is proposed in order to improve the control of reactive power mismatch and the stability of the system. A small signal model of the winddiesel system, DFIG based wind turbine system, UPFC and the controllers are designed for the stability analysis. Further, the voltage variation and reactive power compensation is analysed with the incorporation of proposed ANFIS based UPFC controller. Simulations are performed in MATLAB environment for transient stability analysis in a winddiesel based microgrid with different wind power input and 2% step increase in load demand. Simulation results illustrate the efficiency and effectiveness of the proposed approach and its impact upon transient behaviour of the microgrid.

A theoretical study on area compensation for non-directly-south-facing solar collectors  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Solar energy integrated with the building is an important approach for the synchronous development of solar energy and architecture. The energy gain of the solar collector integrated with the pitched roof has been greatly influenced by the roof azimuth and tilted angle. Investment cost of the collectors is mainly decided by the size of the collector area. Accordingly, it is significant for solar building design to economically determinate the area compensation of the solar collector at different azimuth and tilted angles. Take Kunming and Beijing as examples, area compensation for the flat-plate tube-fin solar collector used in southern regions and the evacuated tube collector with cylindrical absorbers used in northern regions in China have been theoretically calculated. The results to some extent show that the daily horizontal solar radiation, ambient temperature, the azimuth and tilted angle of the collector integrated into the roof have an influence on the area compensation. The azimuth angle and tilted angle of the roof are the main factors that influence the A/A0, which is defined as the collector area ratio of the non-south-facing collectors to the south-facing ones with the optimal tilted angle. Comparative studies found that the range of A/A0 for the evacuated tube collector used in the northern regions is close to that for the flat-plate tube-fin solar collector used in the southern regions. When the pitched roof tilted angle ??[25, 45] and the azimuth angle ????30, the collectors can intercept a lot of solar radiant-energy. Considering the economic situations of the ordinary consumers in China, the optimal area compensation A/A0?1.30 is recommended in this paper.

Recently the main performance improvement in automatic speaker recognition technology has been due to session variability compensation techniques mainly based on factor analysis (FA) which have reduced the equal error rate (EER) of state?of?the?art systems by a factor of 10 in less than five years (e.g. EER<2% for NIST SRE 2008 telephonespeech). Moreover such systems are able to compute millions of comparisons a thousand times faster than real time after speech features are extracted. However some challenges remain because if there is a mismatch between the conditions of the FA training database and the speech used for comparison the effectiveness of the compensation significantly decreases. This problem is especially relevant in forensic voice comparison where the availability of speech matching operational conditions is usually sparse. In this presentation we show the impact of this effect in realistic simulated case studies. We use the BaezaAhumada IV database which contains speech acquired with the Spanish Guardia Civil facilities used in their daily work. We also present algorithms to handle sparsity in the data used for training FA models. Finally we outline future research plans in order to improve session variability compensation performance in forensically realistic conditions.

Injuries and Illnesses of Big Game Hunters in Western Colorado: A 9-Year Analysis  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Category 1 Continuing Medical Education credit for physicians is available to Wilderness Medical Society members for this article. Go to http://wms.org/cme/cme.asp?whatarticle=1811 to access the instructions and test questions.Objective The purpose of this study was to characterize big game hunter visits to a rural hospital's emergency department (ED). Using data collected on fatalities, injuries, and illnesses over a 9-year period, trends were noted and comparisons made to ED visits of alpine skiers, swimmers, and bicyclists. Out-of-hospital hunter fatalities reported by the county coroner's office were also reviewed. Cautionary advice is offered for potential big game hunters and their health care providers. Methods Self-identified hunters were noted in the ED log of a rural Colorado hospital from 1997 to 2005, and injury or illness and outcome were recorded. Additional out-of-hospital mortality data were obtained from the county coroner's office. The estimated total number of big game hunters in the hospital's service area and their average days of hunting were reported by the Colorado Division of Wildlife. The frequencies of hunters illnesses, injuries, and deaths were calculated. Results A total of 725 ED visitsan average of 80 per yearwere recorded. Nearly all visits were in the prime hunting months of September to November. Twenty-seven percent of the hunter ED patients were Colorado residents, and 73% were from out of state. Forty-five percent of the visits were for trauma, 31% for medical illnesses, and 24% were labeled other. The most common medical visits (105) were for cardiac signs and symptoms, and all of the ED deaths (4) were attributed to cardiac causes. The most common trauma diagnosis was laceration (151), the majority (113) of which came from accidental knife injuries, usually while the hunter was field dressing big game animals. Gunshot wounds (4, <1%) were rare. Horse-related injuries to hunters declined while motor vehicle and all-terrain vehicle (ATV)related injuries increased. The five out-of-hospital deaths were cardiac related (3), motor vehicle related (1), and firearm related (1). Conclusions Fatal outcomes in big game hunters most commonly resulted from cardiac diseases. Gunshot injuries and mortalities were very low in this population. Knife injuries were common. Hunters and their health care providers should consider a thorough cardiac evaluation prior to big game hunts. Hunter safety instructors should consider teaching aspects of safe knife use. Consideration should be given to requiring and improving ATV driver education.

Dynamic performance of static and synchronous compensators at an HVDC inverter bus in a very weak AC system  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This paper discusses the performance of dynamic voltage control devices at the inverters of very weak ac systems. The types of compensation considered are: (a) static var compensator (SVC), (b) synchronous compensator (SC), (c) a mix of the two and (d) fixed capacitors. Although the primary purpose of these compensators is to control voltage at the ac bus, their dynamic performance during system disturbances is a very important factor. The investigation includes the behavior of the various voltage control options under ac and dc disturbances. The paper shows that the SVC has the fastest response for load rejection type of overvoltages, but can cause serious problems with recovery during undervoltages caused by single phase faults. The CIGRE benchmark model for HVdc control studies has been modified and used in this study. In particular the effect of local load has been included.

TEAPOT: A thin element accelerator program for optics and tracking  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The program TEAPOT is described. It is intended for fast particle tracking in an accelerator with magnet errors and misalignments. A realistic lattice (Standard Input Format) is first mechanically translated into an acceptably similar lattice containing only thin elements. Tracking in that lattice is fast and exact. This procedure of exact tracking in an approximate lattice can be contrasted with approximate tracking in an exact'' lattice as is performed in existing programs. A full Twiss analysis is performed and there are provisions for the compensation of error-induced coupling, tune-shifts and chromaticity shifts.

EBT GAFCHROMIC{sup TM} film dosimetry in compensator-based intensity modulated radiation therapy  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The electron benefit transfer (EBT) GAFCHROMIC films possess a number of features making them appropriate for high-quality dosimetry in intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT). Compensators to deliver IMRT are known to change the beam-energy spectrum as well as to produce scattered photons and to contaminate electrons; therefore, the accuracy and validity of EBT-film dosimetry in compensator-based IMRT should be investigated. Percentage-depth doses and lateral-beam profiles were measured using EBT films in perpendicular orientation with respect to 6 and 18 MV photon beam energies for: (1) different thicknesses of cerrobend slab (open, 1.0, 2.0, 4.0, and 6.0 cm), field sizes (55, 1010, and 2020 cm{sup 2}), and measurement depths (D{sub max}, 5.0 and 10.0 cm); and (2) step-wedged compensator in a solid phantom. To verify results, same measurements were implemented using a 0.125 cm{sup 3} ionization chamber in a water phantom and also in Monte Carlo simulations using the Monte Carlo N-particle radiation transport computer code. The mean energy of photons was increased due to beam hardening in comparison with open fields at both 6 and 18 MV energies. For a 2020 cm{sup 2} field size of a 6 MV photon beam and a 6.0 cm thick block, the surface dose decreased by about 12% and percentage-depth doses increased up to 3% at 30.0 cm depth, due to the beam-hardening effect induced by the block. In contrast, at 18 MV, the surface dose increased by about 8% and depth dose reduced by 3% at 30.0 cm depth. The penumbral widths (80% to 20%) increase with block thickness, field size, and beam energy. The EBT film results were in good agreement with the ionization chamber dose profiles and Monte Carlo N-particle radiation transport computer code simulation behind the step-wedged compensator. Also, there was a good agreement between the EBT-film and the treatment-planning results on the anthropomorphic phantom. The EBT films can be accurately used as a 2D dosimeter for dose verification and quality assurance of compensator-based C-IMRT.

The Reduced Enrichment Research and Test Reactor (RERTR) Program was established in 1978 at the Argonne National Laboratory by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), which continues to fund the program and to manage it in coordination with the U.S. Department of State, the Arms Control and Disarmament Agency, and the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). The primary objective of the program is to develop the technology needed to use low-enrichment uranium (LEU) instead of high-enrichment uranium (HEU) in research and test reactors, without significant penalties in experiment performance, economics, or safety. Eliminating the continuing need of HEU supplies for research and test reactors has long been an integral part of U.S. nonproliferation policy. This paper reviews the main accomplishments of the program through the years.

An investigation of Bjerknes Compensation in the Southern Ocean in the CCSM4  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This project aims to understand the relationship between poleward oceanic and atmospheric heat transport in the Southern Ocean by analyzing output from the community Climate System Model Version 4 (CCSM4). In particular, time series of meridional heat transport in both the atmosphere and the ocean are used to study whether variability in ocean heat transport is balanced by opposing changes in atmospheric heat transport, called Bjerknes Compensation. It is shown that the heat storage term in the Southern Ocean has a significant impact on the oceanic heat budget; as a result, no robust coherences between oceanic and atmospheric heat transports could be found at these southern latitudes.

Microscopic identification of the compensation mechanisms in Si-doped GaAs  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The compensation mechanisms of SiGa donors in GaAs are determined by scanning tunneling microscopy. With increasing Si concentration the SiGa donors are consecutively electrically deactivated by SiAs acceptors, Si clusters, and SiGa-Ga-vacancy complexes. A microscopic model based on the screened Coulomb interaction between charged dopants, the amphoteric nature of Si, and the Fermi-level effect is proposed. It explains the observed defects, the critical Si concentrations of each identified mechanism, and predicts the solubility limit of Si in GaAs. 1996 The American Physical Society.

Using influenza-like illness data to reconstruct an influenza outbreak  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The objective of this study was to reconstruct the type A influenza epidemic that occurred in the Research Triangle Park (RTP) region of North Carolina during the 200304 flu season. We describe an agent-based influenza transmission model that uses Influenza-like Illness (ILI) data gathered from state agencies to estimate model parameters. The design of the model is similar to models represented in the literature that have been used to predict the impact of pandemic avian influenza in Southeast Asia and in the continental United States and to assess containment strategies. The focus of this model is to reconstruct a historical epidemic that left traces of its impact in the form of an ILI epidemic curve. In this context, the work assumes aspects of a curve fitting exercise.

Cylindrical Ising nanowire in an oscillating magnetic field and dynamic compensation temperature  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The nonequilibrium magnetic properties of a spin-1/2 cylindrical Ising nanowire system with core/shell in an oscillating magnetic field are studied by using a mean-field approach based on the Glauber-type stochastic dynamics (DMFT). We employ the Glauber-type stochastic dynamics to construct set of the coupled mean-field dynamic equations. First, we study the temperature dependence of the dynamic order parameters to characterize the nature of the phase transitions and to obtain the dynamic phase transition points.

An analysis of weep holes as a product detection device for underground compensated LPG storage systems  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Weep holes have been used widely to detect the presence of Liquefied Petroleum Gases (LPG) in brine for underground compensated storage systems. When the brine level drops below the weep hole, LPG product enters the brine production system causing an increase in both tubing head pressure and flow rate. To prevent cavern overfill, a cavern shutdown is initiated upon detection of LPG in the surface brine system by pressure or flow instruments at the tubing head. In this study, we have investigated the multiphase flow characteristics of weep hole LPG detection systems to correctly estimate the operating limits. A simple and easy to use model has been developed to predict the tubing head pressure and flow rate increases. The model can be used to implement safer and more efficient operation procedures for underground compensated LPG storage systems. The model predictions for a typical field case are presented. An analysis of weep holes as product detection devices for LPG storage reservoirs has been carried out. It was found that the increases in pressure and flow rates at the tubing head change as a function of injection flow rate of the product. Therefore, a thorough consideration of cavern operating parameters is necessary to evaluate the use constant pressure and flow rate values to initiate emergency shut down of the cavern.

THRIVE : a data reduction program for three-phase PDV/PDI and VISAR measurements.  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

THRIVE (THRee Interferometer VElocimetry) is an analysis package for reducing three-phase interferometry measurements. Three-phase displacement interferometry measurements are the primary application of this program, although velocity interferometry is also supported. THRIVE uses a push-pull approach to transform measured signals to a pair of quadrature signals, from which fringe shift, target position, and target velocity are inferred. The program can analyze the signals in an ideal sense or compensate for non-ideal measurement conditions using ellipse characterization. The program can be run in any current version of MATLAB (release 2007a or later) or as a Windows XP executable.

Using a DFIG-based wind farm for grid node reactive power compensation  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Grid nodes voltages are not allowed to deviate excessively from nominal value. Appropriate measures should be taken to prevent such a deviation. The voltage difference between two nodes is strongly affected by reactive power flow. In contrast to frequency control, node voltage control must be achieved locally. This article investigates the use of a wind farm based on a doubly fed induction generators (DFIG) for reactive power compensation of a grid node. A wind speed variation sample is applied to the model of a wind power unit. The power flow between the stator of the DFIG-based wind power unit and the grid is controlled by using the decoupled active and reactive power vector control method. The limits or capacity of the stator and power converters to consume or provide reactive power are discussed. SIMULINK software has been used for the simulation of the system.

Method and system for improved resolution of a compensated calorimeter detector  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

An improved method and system for a depleted uranium calorimeter detector used in high energy physics experiments. In a depleted uranium calorimeter detector, the energy of a particle entering the calorimeter detector is determined and the output response of the calorimeter detector is compensated so that the ratio of the integrated response of the calorimeter detector from a lepton to the integrated response of the calorimeter detector from a hadron of the same energy as the lepton is approximately equal to 1. In the present invention, the energy of a particle entering the calorimeter detector is determined as a function of time and the hadron content of the response of the calorimeter detector is inferred based upon the time structure of the energy pulse measured by the calorimeter detector. The energy measurement can be corrected based on the inference of the hadron content whereby the resolution of the calorimeter can be improved.

CR mammography: Design and implementation of a quality control program  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Despite the recent acquisition of significant quantities of computed radiography CR equipment for mammography, Mexican regulations do not specify the performance requirements for digital systems such as those of CR type. The design of a quality control program QCP specific for CR mammography systems was thus considered relevant. International protocols were taken as reference to define tests, procedures and acceptance criteria. The designed QCP was applied in three CR mammography facilities. Important deficiencies in spatial resolution, noise, image receptor homogeneity, artifacts and breast thickness compensation were detected.

PET Motion Compensation for Radiation Therapy Using a CT-Based Mid-Position Motion Model: Methodology and Clinical Evaluation  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Purpose: Four-dimensional positron emission tomography (4D PET) imaging of the thorax produces sharper images with reduced motion artifacts. Current radiation therapy planning systems, however, do not facilitate 4D plan optimization. When images are acquired in a 2-minute time slot, the signal-to-noise ratio of each 4D frame is low, compromising image quality. The purpose of this study was to implement and evaluate the construction of mid-position 3D PET scans, with motion compensated using a 4D computed tomography (CT)-derived motion model. Methods and Materials: All voxels of 4D PET were registered to the time-averaged position by using a motion model derived from the 4D CT frames. After the registration the scans were summed, resulting in a motion-compensated 3D mid-position PET scan. The method was tested with a phantom dataset as well as data from 27 lung cancer patients. Results: PET motion compensation using a CT-based motion model improved image quality of both phantoms and patients in terms of increased maximum SUV (SUV{sub max}) values and decreased apparent volumes. In homogenous phantom data, a strong relationship was found between the amplitude-to-diameter ratio and the effects of the method. In heterogeneous patient data, the effect correlated better with the motion amplitude. In case of large amplitudes, motion compensation may increase SUV{sub max} up to 25% and reduce the diameter of the 50% SUV{sub max} volume by 10%. Conclusions: 4D CT-based motion-compensated mid-position PET scans provide improved quantitative data in terms of uptake values and volumes at the time-averaged position, thereby facilitating more accurate radiation therapy treatment planning of pulmonary lesions.

Passive diffusion samplers were used to obtain a series of two-week integrated measurements from the home of each infant for use in a cohort study of the relation of residential exposure to nitrogen dioxide and respiratory illnesses. Information on stove use and time spent inside the residence was collected at two-week and two-month intervals, respectively. During the winter, in the bedrooms of homes with gas cooking stoves, mean nitrogen dioxide concentrations were 21 parts per billion (ppb); mean concentrations in the living room and kitchen were 29 ppb and 34 ppb, respectively. In homes with electric cooking stoves, the mean bedroom concentration was 7 ppb during the winter. Lower indoor concentrations were observed during the summer in homes with both gas and electric stoves. On average, infants spent approximately 12.3 hours per day in their bedrooms, 7.3 hours in the living rooms, 35 minutes in the kitchens, and 3.8 hours out of their homes. (As a condition of participation, none of the infants spent more than 20 hours per week in day care outside of their homes). The mean time infants spent in the kitchen during cooking was approximately nine minutes per day. We tested whether exposures of infants living in homes with gas stoves could be reasonably estimated by measurements in the bedroom in comparison with time-weighted average concentrations based on time-activity data and simultaneous nitrogen dioxide measurements in the kitchen, living room, and bedroom. In 1,937 two-week intervals from 587 infants, 90% of time-weighted exposure (on the three-level classification used in this study) estimates were in agreement with estimates based on bedroom concentrations alone.

Environmental and Water Environmental and Water Resources MERCURY CONTROL TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH PROGRAM Background Mercury exists in trace amounts in fossil fuels (e.g., natural gas, coal), vegetation, crustal material, and waste products. Through combustion or natural processes, mercury vapor can be released to the atmosphere, where it can drift for a year or more, spreading with air currents over vast regions of the globe. Current estimates approximate that 5000 tons of mercury is released annually into the atmosphere from anthropogenic (man-made) and natural sources combined. Anthropogenic sources in the United States account for about 3 percent of the total annual global mercury releases, with U.S. power plants contributing about 1 percent of the world total.

Pressure Safety Program Implementation at ORNL  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is a US Department of Energy (DOE) facility that is managed by UT-Battelle, LLC. In February 2006, DOE promulgated worker safety and health regulations to govern contractor activities at DOE sites. These regulations, which are provided in 10 CFR 851, Worker Safety and Health Program, establish requirements for worker safety and health program that reduce or prevent occupational injuries, illnesses, and accidental losses by providing DOE contractors and their workers with safe and healthful workplaces at DOE sites. The regulations state that contractors must achieve compliance no later than May 25, 2007. According to 10 CFR 851, Subpart C, Specific Program Requirements, contractors must have a structured approach to their worker safety and health programs that at a minimum includes provisions for pressure safety. In implementing the structured approach for pressure safety, contractors must establish safety policies and procedures to ensure that pressure systems are designed, fabricated, tested, inspected, maintained, repaired, and operated by trained, qualified personnel in accordance with applicable sound engineering principles. In addition, contractors must ensure that all pressure vessels, boilers, air receivers, and supporting piping systems conform to (1) applicable American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (2004) Sections I through XII, including applicable code cases; (2) applicable ASME B31 piping codes; and (3) the strictest applicable state and local codes. When national consensus codes are not applicable because of pressure range, vessel geometry, use of special materials, etc., contractors must implement measures to provide equivalent protection and ensure a level of safety greater than or equal to the level of protection afforded by the ASME or applicable state or local codes. This report documents the work performed to address legacy pressure vessel deficiencies and comply with pressure safety requirements in 10 CFR 851. It also describes actions taken to develop and implement ORNLs Pressure Safety Program.

Coordination of a distribution level continuously controlled compensation device with existing substation equipment for long term VAR management  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The implementation of a continuously controlled reactive compensation device, such as an SVC or a static condenser'' (STATCON), in a distribution-level substation provides opportunities to improve power quality and reliability due to the speed of response of such a device. Further benefits can be gained by coordinating the reactive compensation device and its related controls with other substation voltage control equipment, such as load tap changing (LTC) transformers and mechanically-switched capacitors. The results presented in this paper illustrate the impact that a [+-] 12 Mvar STATCON can have on a 150 MW, 12.5 kV load bus, in the Commonwealth Edison power system. Three control concepts for various levels of integration of the substation STATCON, LTCs, and mechanically-switched capacitors are presented. With broader application of SVCs and STATCONs at distribution substations, various other control strategies may also evolve.

Investigation of charge compensation in indium-doped tin dioxide by hydrogen insertion via annealing under humid conditions  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The behavior of hydrogen (H) as an impurity in indium (In)-doped tin dioxide (SnO{sub 2}) was investigated by mass spectrometry analyses, with the aim of understanding the charge compensation mechanism in SnO{sub 2}. The H-concentration of the In-doped SnO{sub 2} films increased to (12)??10{sup 19}?cm{sup ?3} by annealing in a humid atmosphere (WET annealing). The electron concentration in the films also increased after WET annealing but was two orders of magnitude less than their H-concentrations. A self-compensation mechanism, based on the assumption that H sits at substitutional sites, is proposed to explain the mismatch between the electron- and H-concentrations.

Excess lithium storage and charge compensation in nanoscale Li4+xTi5O12  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Lithium titanate spinel (Li4Ti5O12; LTO) is a promising candidate for anodes in lithium-ion batteries due to its excellent cyclability and safety performance, and has been known as a 'zero-strain' material that allows reversible lithium insertiondeinsertion with little change in the lattice parameters. For a better understanding of lithium reaction mechanisms in this material, it has been of great interest to identify where lithium is inserted and how it migrates during charge and discharge, which is often difficult with x-ray and electron scattering techniques due to the low scattering power of lithium. In this study, we employed atomic-resolution annular bright-field imaging to directly image the lithium on interstitial sites in nanoscale LTO, and electron energy-loss spectroscopy to measure local lithium occupancy and electronic structure at different states of charge. During lithiation, charge compensation occurs primarily at O sites, rather than at Ti sites, and no significant change was found in the projected density of states (Ti 3d) until the voltage was lowered to ~50mV or below. The Li K-edge spectra were simulated via abinitio calculations, providing a direct correlation between the near-edge fine structure and the local lithium coordination. During the initial states of discharge, lithium ions on 8a sites migrate to 16c sites (above 740mV). Further lithiation causes the partial re-occupation of 8a sites, initially in the near-surface region at ~600mV, and then in the bulk at lower voltages (~50mV). We attribute the enhanced capacity in nanostructured LTO to extra storage of lithium in the near-surface region, primarily at {111} facets.

Compensation of the AKT signaling by ERK signaling in transgenic mice hearts overexpressing TRIM72  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The AKT and ERK signaling pathways are known to be involved in cell hypertrophy, proliferation, survival and differentiation. Although there is evidence for crosstalk between these two signaling pathways in cellulo, there is less evidence for cross talk in vivo. Here, we show that crosstalk between AKT and ERK signaling in the hearts of TRIM72-overexpressing transgenic mice (TRIM72-Tg) with alpha-MHC promoter regulates and maintains their heart size. TRIM72, a heart- and skeletal muscle-specific protein, downregulates AKT-mTOR signaling via IRS-1 degradation and reduces the size of rat cardiomyocytes and the size of postnatal TRIM72-Tg hearts. TRIM72 expression was upregulated by hypertrophic inducers in cardiomyocytes, while IRS-1 was downregulated by IGF-1. TRIM72 specifically regulated IGF-1-dependent AKT-mTOR signaling, resulting in a reduction of the size of cardiomyocytes. Postnatal TRIM72-Tg hearts were smaller than control-treated hearts with inhibition of AKT-mTOR signaling. However, adult TRIM72-Tg hearts were larger than of control despite the suppression of AKT-mTOR signaling. Activation of ERK, PKC-?, and JNK were observed to be elevated in adult TRIM72-Tg, and these signals were mediated by ET-1 via the ET receptors A and B. Altogether, these results suggest that AKT signaling regulates cardiac hypertrophy in physiological conditions, and ERK signaling compensates for the absence of AKT signaling during TRIM72 overexpression, leading to pathological hypertrophy. -- Highlights: TRIM72 inhibits AKT signaling through ubiquitination of IRS-1 in cardiac cells. TRIM72 regulates the size of cardiac cells. TRIM72 regulates size of postnatal TRIM72-overexpressing transgenic mice hearts. Adult TRIM72-overexpressing transgenic mice hearts showed cardiac dysfunction. Adult TRIM72 transgenic mice hearts showed higher expression of endothelin receptors.

Radical advancement in multi-spectral imaging for autonomous vehicles (UAVs, UGVs, and UUVs) using active compensation.  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The purpose of this LDRD was to demonstrate a compact, multi-spectral, refractive imaging systems using active optical compensation. Compared to a comparable, conventional lens system, our system has an increased operational bandwidth, provides for spectral selectivity and, non-mechanically corrects aberrations induced by the wavelength dependent properties of a passive refractive optical element (i.e. lens). The compact nature and low power requirements of the system lends itself to small platforms such as autonomous vehicles. In addition, the broad spectral bandwidth of our system would allow optimized performance for both day/night use, and the multi-spectral capability allows for spectral discrimination and signature identification.

Cumulative radiation dose estimates from medical imaging in paediatric patients with non-oncologic chronic illnesses. A systematic review  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Paediatric patients with non-oncologic chronic illnesses often require ongoing care that may result in repeated imaging and exposure to ionizing radiation from both diagnostic and interventional procedures. In this study the scientific literature on cumulative effective dose (CED) of radiation accrued from medical imaging among specific cohorts of paediatric, non-oncologic chronic patients (inflammatory bowel disease, cystic fibrosis, congenital heart disease, shunt-treated hydrocephalus, hemophilia, spinal dysraphism) was systematically reviewed. We conducted PubMed/Medline, Scopus and EMBASE searches of peer-reviewed papers on CED from diagnostic and therapeutic radiological examinations. No time restriction was introduced in the search. Only studies reporting \\{CEDs\\} accrued for a period >1 year were included. We found that the annual CED was relatively low (320mSv/year) in Crohn's patients. This extra yearly radiation exposure accrues over the lifetime and can reach high values (>100mSv) in selected cohorts of paediatric chronic patients.

Compensation as Means for Local Acceptance The Case of the Final Disposal of Spent Nuclear Fuel in Eurajoki, Finland  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The paper sheds light on the local negotiations on compensation as a part of the site selection for the spent nuclear fuel repository in Finland. The negotiation took place between the representatives of the Municipality of Eurajoki, the nuclear power company Teollisuuden Voima Ltd (TVO) and the nuclear waste management company Posiva Ltd in the late 1990's. The compensation negotiation process and the development of the requirements are elucidated in detail on the basis of the analysis of the minutes of the meetings of the Vuojoki working party. The paper helps to understand the smooth site selection process in Finland. The context of the local decision-making is viewed from the policy, institutional and economic aspect. It is concluded in the paper that when trying to understand the progress of the Finnish site selection process more emphasis should be put on the role of TVO, the economic dependency of the Municipality of Eurajoki on TVO and the partnership between TVO and the leading local politicians.

Program Impact Analysis Program Impact Analysis BECP periodically assesses the impacts of its activities by estimating historical and projected energy savings, consumer savings, and avoided emissions. Since the inception of the Program 20 years ago, cumulative full-fuel-cycle (FFC) energy savings from 1992- 2012 are estimated to be approximately 4.8 quads and cost savings to consumers have been more than $44 billion. These savings have resulted primarily from the Program's activities which upgrade the model energy codes, accelerate their adoption by states and localities, and improve code compliance by means of various software tools and other types of training and technical support. The federal budgetary cost of the Program over this same period (1992-2012) was estimated to be around $110 million, resulting in a ratio of more than $400

Developments in patient activation of people with chronic illness and the impact of changes in self-reported health: results of a nationwide longitudinal study in The Netherlands  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

AbstractObjective To explore how patient activation, i.e. patients perceived knowledge, skills and self-confidence to manage their health and healthcare, develops within chronically ill individuals over time, and to estimate the impact of self-rated health on this development. Methods Linear regression analyses and structural equation modeling were conducted using longitudinal data from 751 people with chronic disease(s). Patient activation was assessed by the patient activation measure; self-rated health was assessed by the SF-36 general health scale. Results Mean patient activation score at baseline was 60.6, and 18 months later 56.5. Baseline self-rated health had a positive, indirect effect on patient activation at 18 months. In addition, the change in self-rated health over one year (from baseline) was a significant predictor of patients activation scores. Conclusion Patient activation is not a stable characteristic of people who have been chronically ill for years. Within individuals both increases and decreases occur, but at group level patient activation slightly decreases over time. This may (partly) be due to the deterioration of health that many people with chronic illness experience in course of time. Practice implications Clinical practitioners should assess the activation level of chronically ill patients regularly, especially when changes in health occur.
