Smart Soft Actuation System
(Austin Publishing Group, 2015-06-06)
We have demonstrated the fabrication of cantilever shaped soft material actuator, by integrating soft silicon material with Ti-Ni shape memory alloy (SMA) wires with the diameter of 250 micrometer. A 3D stereo-lithographic ...
PSCAD Implementation of IEEE 123 Node Test Feeder
The accompanying file is a PSCAD setup of the IEEE 123 node test feeder. In the PSCAD model, the substation transformer has been omitted. The switches default states have been set according to their default setting in the ...
Single-Phase PQ Inverter Model and Application to Unbalance Compensation in Islanded Microgrids (PSCAD Simulation)
This is a simulation study of islanded microgrids for black start purpose. The study focuses on the voltage unbalance that results from serving unbalanced loads in the distribution system and how this could be mitigated ...
A case study for sensitivity-based building energy optimization
(ARCC Conference Repository, 2019-05-26)
Building design optimization process is associated with uncertainties due to climate change, unpredictable occupant behavior, and physical degradation of building material over time. The inherent uncertainties in the ...
UNCERTAINTY AND SENSITIVITY ANALYSIS USING BUILDING INFORMATION MODELING (An Energy Analysis Test Case)
(the Association for Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA), Hong Kong, 2019-04-15)
Building design decision-making is associated with uncertainties due to variations over time and unpredictable parameters. There is a growing demand for probabilistic methods, i.e., uncertainty and sensitivity analyses ...
PARTICIPATORY MAPPING GIS TOOLS FOR MAKING HIDDEN PLACES VISIBLE: A CASE STUDY OF THE TEXAS FREEDOM COLONIES ATLAS
Freedom colonies are historic black settlements established by freed black men and women after emancipation. They exist all over the United States with a high concentration in Texas. Black Texans founded more than 557 ...
