Title: Cutting state identification

Abstract

Cutting states associated with the orthogonal cutting of stiff cylinders are identified through an analysis of the singular values of a Toeplitz matrix of third order cumulants of acceleration measurements. The ratio of the two pairs of largest singular values is shown to differentiate between light cutting, medium cutting, pre-chatter and chatter states. Sequences of cutting experiments were performed in which either depth of cut or turning frequency was varied. Two sequences of experiments with variable turning frequency and five with variable depth of cut, 42 cutting experiments in all, provided a database for the calculation of third order cumulants. Ratios of singular values of cumulant matrices find application in the analysis of control of orthogonal cutting.

  • Boundary encroachment or cutting right up to pre-cut sections are examples of unsteady-state operations of the laser cutting process. Cornering and generating small diameter holes also fall into this category. Heat transfer is often frustrated here, resulting in bulk heating of the workpiece. This in turn leads to a degradation of the cut quality. Currently, trial-and-error based experimentation is needed in order to assure quality in these regions. Thus model-based process planning has the benefit of reducing this step whilst leading to an optimal solution. Numerical investigation of the laser-workpiece interaction zone quantifies significant effects of such transiency on cuttingmore » front mobility and beam coupling behavior. Non-linear power adaptation profiles are generated via the optimization strategy in order to stabilize cutting front temperatures. Experimental results demonstrate such process planning can produce quality improvements.« less
  • This paper presents a methodology of data validation and fault identification, based on analytic redundancy, for steady-state plant operation. This work differs from previously reported work on analytic redundancy in that validation of all the main parameters of the plant heat-transport loops is sought by using plant-wide instrument information. An LMFBR plant is used as a reference, and validation of the following plant parameters is considered: reactor power (Q), reactor inlet and outlet coolant temperatures (T/sub IC/ and T/sub OC/, respectively), intermediate heat exchanger (IHX) inlet and outlet secondary coolant temperatures (T/sub IS/, T/sub OS/), steam generator feedwater temperature (T/submore » w/), steam temperature (T/sub S/) and pressure (P/sub s/) as well as primary, intermediate, and feedwater flows (G/sub p/, G/sub I/, G/sub w/).« less
  • This paper describes the strategy and computer processing system that NREL, the Virginia Department of Mines, Minerals and Energy (DMME) and the state energy office, are developing for computing solar attractiveness scores for state agencies and the individual facilities or buildings within each agency. In the case of an agency, solar attractiveness is a measure of that agency`s having a significant number of facilities for which solar has the potential to be promising. In the case of a facility, solar attractiveness is a measure of its potential for being good, economically viable candidate for a solar waste heating system. Virginiamore » State agencies are charged with reducing fossil energy and electricity use and expense. DMME is responsible for working with them to achieve the goals and for managing the state`s energy consumption and cost monitoring program. This is done using the Fast Accounting System for Energy Reporting (FASER) computerized energy accounting and tracking system and database. Agencies report energy use and expenses (by individual facility and energy type) to DMME quarterly. DMME is also responsible for providing technical and other assistance services to agencies and facilities interested in investigating use of solar. Since Virginia has approximately 80 agencies operating over 8,000 energy-consuming facilities and since DMME`s resources are limited, it is interested in being able to determine: (1) on which agencies to focus; (2) specific facilities on which to focus within each high-priority agency; and (3) irrespective of agency, which facilities are the most promising potential candidates for solar. The computer processing system described in this paper computes numerical solar attractiveness scores for the state`s agencies and the individual facilities using the energy use and cost data in the FASER system database and the state`s and NREL`s experience in implementing, testing and evaluating solar water heating systems in commercial and government facilities.« less
  • New York State conducted its 1995 PAMS measurements for New York City in the Bronx borough (New York Botanical Gardens) using a Perkin-Elmer ATD-400 Thermal Desorbtion Unit with an 8000 Series Gas Chromatograph. Data was collected in New York City, transferred to Albany, and processed in the central office. The system was checked on a daily basis from Albany to verify operation. Quality assurance for the system was provided by collecting a one hour collocated canister sample every day with analysis performed in Albany using a GC-MS system. The normal configuration for the Perkin-Elmer system uses only two columns, amore » PLOT column to separate low weight hydrocarbons (C{sub 2}-C{sub 5}) and a BP-1 column to separate higher weight hydrocarbons (C{sub 6}-C{sub 10}). New York`s custom designed system uses a third RTX-5 column to provide a second identification and quantitation of most target hydrocarbons. Analysis of the 1995 data provides insight into the usefulness of the third column in correcting both misidentified peaks and over-quantification of compound concentrations found using the standard configuration alone. The 1995 data set also allows an examination of the increased complexity versus the benefits of the system modification. 6 figs., 1 tab.« less
