  • By controlling spring stiffness, vibration reduction and isolation for the mass-spring system are achieved in this paper. The control algorithm of the spring stiffness is based on the variable structure systems (VSS) theory. The stiffness-controllable spring is achieved by using two straight bars that are hinged to the mass in a line perpendicular to the direction of mass motion and are applied axial force. Since the axial force causes restoring force equivalent to the spring, the stiffness is controlled by the axial force. In the numerical simulations and experiments, the settling time of the impulse response and the displacement transmissibilitymore » are investigated. The results show that the proposed method is effective in suppressing shock motion and isolating vibration transmitted from the floor.« less
  • The feasibility of several pyrochemical approaches for separating non-radioactive constituents from ICPP BLW calcine were examined. The removal of aluminum as AlCl{sub 3} from aluminia calcine was successfully demonstrated. The examination of pyrochemical processes to remove non-radioactive constituents, primarily aluminium, zirconium, calcium and fluorine, from zirconia calcine showed that fluorine removal was required inorder to chlorinate the calcine. A molten calcium chloride wash, a calcium reduction, and a sulfuric acid treatment were examined as possible zirconia calcine pretreatment options for fluorine removal. Fluorine removal from simulated ICPP zirconia calcine was demonstrated by both a CaCl{sub 2} wash method and amore » sulfuric acid treatment method. X-ray fluorescence analysis indicated that greater than 97% of the fluorine can be removed by either method. Fluorine removal by a calcium reduction using an alloying agent, zinc, or a calcium reduction using a filtration separation were also demonstrated, but the efficiencies of fluorine removal were considerably less ranging from 50 to 90%.« less
  • A Self-Excited Induction Generation (SEIG) for a variable speed wind turbine generation(VS-WG) is normally considered to be a good candidate for implementation in stand-alone applications such as battery charging, hydrogenation, water pumping, water purification, water desalination, and etc. In this study, we have examined a study on active power and flux control strategies for a SEIG for a variable speed wind turbine generation. The control analysis for the proposed system is carried out by using PSCAD software. In the process, we can optimize the control design of the system, thereby enhancing and expediting the control design procedure for this application.more » With this study, this control design for a SEIG for VS-WG can become the industry standard for analysis and development in terms of SEIG.« less
