  • A new approach to accelerating parallel sorting processes is introduced in this paper. This approach involves the design of a new type of memory chip with sorting functions. This type of sorting memory chip is feasible with today's VLSI techniques. A memory module organizing several sorting memory chips associated with additional ECL or TTL control logic circuits is also presented. Using the sorting memory modules in a shared memory parallel processor machine, parallel sorting algorithms such as the column sort method can reduce the row access time significantly and avoid data collisions in the interconnection network. Experimental simulation results onmore » the practical speedup achieved and the memory utilization for the proposed approach are described.« less
  • Alcoa is committed to a recycling program for aluminum scraps from automobile parts. A key to this program is the ability to identify and sort various aluminum alloys on-line, nondestructively, and in real time. To accomplish this, an alloy detection method that penetrates large fractions of the sample thicknesses of interest is required so that surface coatings of paint or grease and dirt will not significantly affect the identification. The prompt gamma-ray neutron activation analysis (PGNAA) method appears to be an excellent choice for this because both the initiating neutrons and resulting prompt gamma rays have relatively large penetration intomore » the samples of interest. This technique has been successfully applied in the past to the on-line analysis of large bulk materials such as coal on conveyor belts with {sup 252}Cf sources and to small samples in the neutron beams of nuclear reactors.« less
  • This paper presents a new scheme based on the fuzzy regression analysis for the estimation of peak load in distribution systems. In distribution system, bus load estimation is complicated because system load is usually monitored at only a few points. As a rule receiving nodes are not equipped with stationary measuring instruments so measurements of loads are performed sporadically. In general, the only information commonly available regarding loads, other than major distribution substations and equipment installations, is billing cycle customer kWh consumption. In order to model system uncertainty, inexactness, and random nature of customers` demand, a fuzzy system approach ismore » proposed. This paper presents possibilities of application of the fuzzy set theory to power distribution system calculations. Unreliable and inaccurate input data have been modeled by means of fuzzy numbers. Trapezoidal and triangular forms of fuzzy numbers were used for description of input data. A regression model, expressing the correlation between a substation peak load and a set of customer features (explanatory variables), existing in the substation population, is determined. Simulation studies have been performed to demonstrate the efficiency of the proposed scheme on the basis of actual data obtained at two distribution system substations. The same data have been used for building standard linear regression models. Comparison of the performance of both methods has been done.« less
