Since lighting attributes to 11% of energy usage in residential buildings and 18% in commercial buildings, improving its efficiency as a whole could have a beneficial effect on the general populace and drastically reduce costs for individuals using and supplying lighting. Because energy production is one of the most prominent contributors to greenhouse gas emissions, improving lighting performance could slow climate change and dampen future expenses associated with reversing env...Tue, 12 Sep 2017 13:13:04 GMTbrent.schultze@utdallas.eduhttp://utdallas.technologypublisher.com/technology/26222Enhancing Plasticity and Recovery Following Spinal Cord Injuryhttp://utdallas.technologypublisher.com/technology/26029Mon, 14 Aug 2017 08:35:37 GMTbrent.schultze@utdallas.eduhttp://utdallas.technologypublisher.com/technology/26029Multi-hop Passive RFID Systemshttp://utdallas.technologypublisher.com/technology/25741Mon, 24 Jul 2017 08:41:08 GMTbrent.schultze@utdallas.eduhttp://utdallas.technologypublisher.com/technology/25741Logarithmic Power Feedback for Extremum Seeking Control of Wind Turbineshttp://utdallas.technologypublisher.com/technology/25645When a wind turbine operates between the cut-in and rated wind speeds, the machine is controlled to maximize wind energy capture. The extremum seeking control (ESC) algorithm has been proposed to locate and track the optimal operating condition for power maximization. This is accomplished by applying the ESC to the power signal to determine optimal values for parameters of the control law or actuator settings. Since the power signal is proportional to the cube of the mean wind speed, changes in wind conditions may lead to significant variations in the performance of the ESC algorithm.
