Chatterjee Pradeep,Karan B.M.,Sinha P.K.
Serbian Journal of Electrical Engineering , 2007, DOI: 10.2298/sjee0702147c
Abstract: Several methods have been proposed and published for control of induction motors. The objective of this work is to develop a fuzzy controller with reduced rule base. Using concepts of direct torque control, a fuzzy controller has been designed with a cascaded final state selector, which reduced rule base and gave birth to a new control technique of induction motor. Details and performance of the fuzzy controller has been discussed in the paper.

Abstract: Quality and safety in the health sector go “hand in hand”, which means that both components are inseparably linked - quality improvement will often affect more security. Good quality services will be successfully implemented in organizations that already have a "quality culture", i.e., where the value system of employees is consistent with their commitment to providing high quality health services. The organization must have a clear strategic commitment to providing quality services at all levels of an organization. Quality and safety are not "an extra element in providing services, but make its ground. As such, the quality and safety must be built into the organization. Patient satisfaction, quality service and efficient management of resources become “holy trinity” of modern health care, strictly oriented towards the patient, aimed at reducing costs while increasing quality. Healthcare system worldwide try to develop new strategies, the implementation of which would lead to the end result -improvement of health care quality.
Improving WSN Base Station Survivability with Rejuvenation Technology  [PDF]
He Xin,Gui Xiaolin,Wei Wei
International Journal of Distributed Sensor Networks , 2009, DOI: 10.1080/15501320802561708
Abstract: The conventional security technology for WSN is mainly focused on improvement to the system's anti-invasion ability; however, seldom concerns how the system should go on providing external services after the invasion and failure, leading to the system's low survivability. In addition, base station is a keyport for WSN. Therefore, software rejuvenation technology is introduced into the construction of a survival model for WSN base station, in order to improve the overall WSN survival performance.

Journal of Medical Biochemistry , 2008, DOI: 10.2478/v10011-008-0013-4
Abstract: Trends in clinical laboratory practice place more demands on the quality of patient specimens. Advances in analytical performance (i.e., increased automation, reduced sample volume, increased assay sensitivity), as well as efficiency and cost reduction gains (i.e., throughput, test turnaround time) have improved medical practice. These changes, however, have caused an increased incidence of preanalytical errors, dictating the need for higher-quality specimens. The following paper addresses these errors in addition to methodologies for improving the quality of the preanalytical phase.
Exploiting environmental resonances to enhance qubit quality factors  [PDF]
S. Kleff,S. Kehrein,J. von Delft
Physics , 2003, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevB.70.014516
Abstract: We discuss dephasing times for a two-level system (including bias) coupled to a damped harmonic oscillator. This system is realized in measurements on solid-state Josephson qubits. It can be mapped to a spin-boson model with a spectral function with an approximately Lorentzian resonance. We diagonalize the model by means of infinitesimal unitary transformations (flow equations), and calculate correlation functions, dephasing rates, and qubit quality factors. We find that these depend strongly on the environmental resonance frequency $\Omega$; in particular, quality factors can be enhanced significantly by tuning $\Omega$ to lie below the qubit frequency $\Delta$.
Silvopastoral Systems Enhance Soil Quality in Grasslands of Colombia  [PDF]

Applied and Environmental Soil Science , 2014, DOI: 10.1155/2014/359736
Abstract: In the tropical drylands of Colombia, the soils subjected to traditional systems of livestock production are severely degraded and depleted of plant nutrients. Multistrata silvopastoral systems are viable alternatives to improve livestock production; however, it is unknown whether these systems can reduce the negative environmental impacts of traditional systems on soil quality. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of 13-year-old multistrata silvopastoral systems on soil quality parameters in degraded soils of the Sinu River Valley, Colombia. The results show that the trees in the silvopastoral systems increased or maintained soil pH values and nutrient availability (phosphorus, potassium, and calcium) with respect to the pastures with only grasses. The effects were significantly controlled by the types of plant species, particularly Guazuma ulmifolia and Cassia grandis. 1. Introduction Soil degradation is one of the major constraints in the tropics affecting 500 million ha [1], threatening ecosystem services and food security for people in developing countries [2]. The Caribbean region of Colombia is an unfortunately example of this situation because 80–100% of the grasslands exhibit soil erosion, soil compaction, and low soil nutrient availability for livestock systems [3–6]. The major cause is overgrazing and lack of proper management practices such as monoculture of Gramineae versus plant diversity, adequate fertilization, soil conservation practices, and reduced tillage [7–10]. Consequently, over time, these soils exhibit high level of compaction (2.2–4.2?MPa) and low levels of plant nutrients (e.g., phosphate: <10?mg?kg?1 and potassium: <0.11?cmolc?kg?1) that diminishes forage quality and availability, particularly in the long dry season [4, 6]. As a result of that, there is low animal carrying capacity (one animal per ha), low weight gain (<300?g day?1), late age for slaughter (30–36 months), and high cost of production (US$ 0.80?kg?1) [6, 8]. As an alternatives, silvopastoral systems can be successfully implemented because they can provide several benefits: animal comfort and productivity, litter supply, nutrient cycling, water infiltration, soil bulk density, soil fauna, and biodiversity [11–16]. Unfortunately, in the tropics, there are not sufficient data to support these claims on soil quality parameters [17–19] as it occurs in the temperate zone [20–22], which limits the widespread use of this strategy [23–25]. Our hypothesis in this study was that soil quality parameters (e.g., soil pH, soil organic matter, and plant

Abstract: Software testing is a technique aimed at evaluating an attribute or capability/usability of a program or product/system and determining that it meets its quality. Although crucial to software quality and widely deployed by programmer & testers, software testing still remains an art, due to limited understanding of the principles of software. Software testing is an important technique for assessing the quality of a software product. In this paper, various types of software testing technique and various attributes of software quality are explained. Identifying the types of testing that can be applied for checking a particular quality attribute is the aim of this thesis report. All types of testing can not be applied in all phases of software development life cycle. Which testing types are applicable in which phases of life cycle of software development is also summarized
