Distributed Renewable Energy under the Guidance of Price Autonomous Operation Technology  [PDF]
Arslan Habib, Adeel Arshad, Rafiq Khan
Smart Grid and Renewable Energy (SGRE) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/sgre.2017.810020
Abstract: Penetration of Distributed Renewable Energy in active distribution network has increased year by year, and the distributed characteristics of active distribution network has become increasingly prominent; it is difficult for traditional centralized energy scheduling to solve the coordination of random output of distributed energy and the communication pressure of a large number of distributed data. In this paper, we propose a Distributed Renewable Energy Coordination Strategy based on price guidance, through hierarchical multi-agent model. The coordination model of each agent is introduced in detail, regional target, price coordination response strategy and regional security constraints, using Agent’s Distributed Autonomy and Global Collaboration to realize the Energy Balance of Active Distribution Network and promote the Storage of Distributed Renewable Energy; the coordination strategy focuses on the impact of price adjustment on energy storage and flexible load response capacity to improve the distributed renewable energy consumption. Finally, through the quantitative analysis of the comprehensive performance of the index, the evaluation results of the traditional sequential simulation method are compared, and the rationality and validity of the proposed method are verified.

International Journal of Computer and Electrical Engineering , 2013, DOI: 10.7763/ijcee.2013.v5.751
Abstract: This paper illustrates the study of practices and trends of outsourcing of software production around the world specially in Pakistan. The focus of the study is to find out factors that influence the outsourcing trends and where is outsourcing industry of Pakistan heading to. With Pakistan’s fast-paced IT industry, it is emerging as a powerhouse in the South Asian region; other factors include availability of a large pool of English-proficient skilled professionals, affordable connectivity rates, competitive infrastructure and operational costs. On the downside, the country has an image problem in global community because there is perception abroad that Pakistan is politically and economically unstable. However, these problems have not scared away customers. The conclusion of the study is that it will enhance the knowledge of practitioners and academia about the cross-cultural outsourcing in systems development.

The Mobot Architecture: A Design of Autonomy Data Evaluation
Arshad Mansoor,Adeel Ahmed Hashmi,Nawazish Khokhar
International Journal of Computer and Electrical Engineering , 2013, DOI: 10.7763/ijcee.2013.v5.765
Abstract: Most large, long term mobile robot systems start with some architecture. We studied some of the architectures which are implemented on robot previously, the advantages and disadvantages and finally select siemens 4 view architecture, the best possible architecture for mobile robot. In the designing phase of developing architecture of a robot using siemens 4 view, first of all we will identify the quality goals in the form of factor tables. Quality goals/Factor tables are basically broader statements which gave the information of the attributes, which this system will be capable to perform at the end and it will also provide different qualities that the final system should exhibit and are used to guide the development process. We will only identify some of the quality goals like navigation, security, monitoring, communication etc. Complete and detailed architecture will be developed in future. We named this architecture as Mobot.

Journal of Tuberculosis Research (JTR) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/jtr.2018.64024
Abstract: Background: Distinguishing tuberculous pleural effusion (TPE) from other causes of exudative effusion is often challenging. Delay in treatment initiation can occur while awaiting histo-microbiologic confirmation owing to the paucibacillary nature of the disease. Sago-like nodules are the most common visual finding on gross thoracoscopic appearance. The primary objective was to determine the diagnostic utility of the presence of sago-like nodules on gross thoracoscopic appearance in TPE to help justify early initiation of tuberculosis (TB) treatment based on their finding while awaiting final histo-microbiologic confirmation. Secondary objective was to study the correlation between the presence of sago-like nodules and the final histo-microbiologic findings in pleural biopsy specimens. Methods: This was a retrospective-descriptive study of all patients with exudative pleural effusion who underwent diagnostic medical thoracoscopy (MT) at Hamad General Hospital during an eight-year period (from January, 2008 to December, 2015). Results: The presence of sago-like nodules on gross thoracoscopic appearance of the pleural surface had a sensitivity of 58%, a specificity of 89% and a positive predictive value of 97% for TPE with a diagnostic accuracy of 62%. There is significant association between the presence of sago-like nodules and demonstration of granulomatous inflammation in pleural biopsy specimens (P = 0.000). There is no association between sago-like nodules and positive TB smear and culture in biopsy specimens. Conclusion: The presence of sago-like nodules on gross thoracoscopic appearance has a high specificity and positive predictive value for TPE and significantly correlates with the presence of granulomatous inflammation. Patients from TB prevalent areas with exudative pleural effusion and sago-like nodules on gross thoracoscopic appearance may be commenced on TB chemotherapy while awaiting final histologic confirmation.
Engaging Aerospace Students Using Interactive Web-Based Techniques  [PDF]
Adeel Khalid
Advances in Aerospace Science and Technology (AAST) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/aast.2016.11001
Abstract: Most engineering courses require some level of work to be done by students using internet. A vast majority of material taught in classes is available online. Theoretically, a student could learn almost everything they want from the online resources. In this research, a comparative study is done between students learning and understanding when some basic aerospace concepts are taught in a traditional lecture based classroom versus when students are told to look for the same material on the internet. The results indicate that, although all the material taught in the classroom is available on the internet, students do not perform better when they exclusively use internet for learning. However a traditional lecture based class coupled with internet resources yields the favourable results.

Acta Crystallographica Section E , 2009, DOI: 10.1107/s1600536809047291
Abstract: In the molecule of the title sulfonamide compound, C13H11NO4S, the dihedral angle between the planes of the benzene ring and the carboxyl substituent group is 6.7 (4)°. The two aromatic rings are inclined at 45.36 (15)° to one another. In the crystal, adjacent molecules are linked via classical intermolecular N—H...O and O—H...O, and non-classical C—H...O hydrogen bonds, which stabilize the crystal structure.

Acta Crystallographica Section E , 2009, DOI: 10.1107/s1600536809036538
Abstract: In the molecule of the zwitterionic title compound, C10H9NO3S, an intramolecular N—H...O hydrogen bond results in the formation of an almost planar six-membered ring (r.m.s daviation = 0.0150 ), which is oriented at a dihedral angle of 1.63 (3)° with respect to the naphthalene ring system. In the crystal structure, intermolecular N—H...O hydrogen bonds link the molecules into a two-dimensional network.
Configuration for Predicting Travel-Time Using Wavelet Packets and Support Vector Regression  [PDF]
Adeel Yusuf, Vijay K. Madisetti
Journal of Transportation Technologies (JTTs) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/jtts.2013.33023
Abstract: Travel-time prediction has gained significance over the years especially in urban areas due to increasing traffic congestion. In this paper, the basic building blocks of the travel-time prediction models are discussed, with a small review of the previous work. A model for the travel-time prediction on freeways based on wavelet packet decomposition and support vector regression (WDSVR) is proposed, which used the multi-resolution and equivalent frequency distribution ability of the wavelet transform to train the support vector machines. The results are compared against the classical support vector regression (SVR) method. Our results indicated that the wavelet reconstructed coefficient when used as an input to the support vector machine for regression performed better (with selected wavelets only), when compared with the support vector regression model (without wavelet decomposition) with a prediction horizon of 45 minutes and more. The data used in this paper was taken from the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) of District 12 with a detector density of 2.73, experiencing daily peak hours except most weekends. The data was stored for a period of 214 days accumulated over 5-minute intervals over a distance of 9.13 miles. The results indicated MAPE ranging from 12.35% to 14.75% against the classical SVR method with MAPE ranging from 12.57% to 15.84% with a prediction horizon of 45 minutes to 1 hour. The basic criteria for selection of wavelet basis for preprocessing the inputs of support vector machines are also explored to filter the set of wavelet families for the WDSVR model. Finally, a configuration of travel-time prediction on freeways is presented with interchangeable prediction methods.

Abstract: The Ebola virus poses two inter-linked threats—the disease itself and fear of the disease. In Liberia, where over 4500 people have died from Ebola, a UN peacekeeping mission is currently operational (UNMIL). The study was conducted among 240 UN peace keepers of 9 different countries working in Liberia. The study period was from July 2014 to December 2014. The level of anxiety of the subjects were assessed in Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS). Reactions towards Ebola were mixed. There was a degree of fear but the level of anxiety was not so predominant. The reasons for panic were—no known cure, a perceived fear of discrimination and stigmatization, a fear that upon death one’s body will not be taken back home, there may not be proper burial or even cremation, contrary to custom. Among the study population, 55% think of themselves as being at greater risk than their colleagues, 19% wants to leave the UN mission area. The mean level of Anxiety was 10.87 ± 6.93 in HAD scale where as mean level of Depression was 3.98 ± 4.14. Psychological support is a key priority in the response to this relatively unknown and poorly understood yet lethal disease.
