Holonic Architecture of the Smart Grid  [PDF]
Ebisa Negeri, Nico Baken, Marjan Popov
Smart Grid and Renewable Energy (SGRE) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/sgre.2013.42025
Abstract: With the growing concerns about sustainable energy, energy efficiency and energy security, the electrical power system is undergoing major changes. Distributed energy sources are becoming widely available at the lower parts of the grid. As a result, more and more end consumers are transforming from passive consumers to active “prosumers” that can autonomously generate, store, import and/or export power. As prosumers increasingly dominate the power system, the system demands capability that allows enormous number of stakeholders with heterogeneous types to exchange power on the grid. Unfortunately, the classical power system cannot efficiently handle this scenario since it was designed for centralized power distribution. Thus, restructuring the rather old power system is indispensable. In this paper, we apply the holonic approach to structure the smart grid as a system that is bottom-up organized from autonomous prosumers that are recursively clustered at various aggregation layers. Based on this, we present a control architecture of the smart grid using holonic concepts. Our control architecture is characterized by autonomy of the prosumers, distributed control, recursive self-similar control structures at different aggregation levels. Further, we present a service oriented architecture (SOA) framework that models the control functions that make up the holonic control architecture. Our proposed control architecture is tested using a simulation set-up.
Establishing Payment Hubs—Unwind the Spaghetti?  [PDF]
Christoph Markert
American Journal of Industrial and Business Management (AJIBM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ajibm.2014.44024
Abstract:

Banks and financial services providers are facing a more and more competitive business within the retail banking as well as corporate market. Increasing productivity and efficiency by decreasing operational costs is very often one milestone on the strategic business roadmap of a bank or financial services providers. The payment area is usually seen as a cost intensive, but necessary part of the business and information technology (IT) landscape. Many banks and financial services providers do still follow a best-of-breed approach within the system payments landscape, which ends up in high operational and maintenance costs as different payment processing platforms are serving different business purposes. The establishment of a single globally centralized payment hub cannot be only the solution for the ending of a heterogeneous payment processing landscape, but also for supporting the strategic management roadmap by decreasing system complexity and increasing the efficiency of the payment platforms and thus decreasing operational and maintenance IT costs. Furthermore it can support banks to establish a far more flexible technological implementation approach for an entire core banking transformation program. This paper is analyzing the challenges and issues banks and financial services providers are facing with the establishment of payment hubs in their enterprise system landscape from a management as well as IT point of view.

The Effects of Tourism Architecture on Island Ecosystems  [PDF]
Lourdes Ruiz
Journal of Building Construction and Planning Research (JBCPR) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/jbcpr.2015.34016
Abstract: This research aims to propose environmental prevention and mitigation on fragile coastal ecosystems due to the actions of the tourist architecture, using methods of life-cycle assessment of buildings, matrix methods of the actions that cause severe environmental impact and statistical processing through multivariate analysis. A study of projects was undertaken in Cayo Coco located to the north of Ciego de Avila, Cuba, being built today and where the tourist development of the archipelago Sabana-Camaguey started. It has been determined that suitable architecture would decrease the negative impact of these fragile ecosystems.
Digitally-Driven Architecture
Henriette Bier,Terry Knight
Footprint , 2010,
Abstract: The shift from mechanical to digital forces architects to reposition themselves: Architects generate digital information, which can be used not only in designing and fabricating building components but also in embedding behaviours into buildings. This implies that, similar to the way that industrial design and fabrication with its concepts of standardisation and serial production influenced modernist architecture, digital design and fabrication influences contemporary architecture. While standardisa-tion focused on processes of rationalisation of form, mass-customisation as a new paradigm that replaces mass-production, addresses non-standard, complex, and flexible designs. Furthermore, knowledge about the designed object can be encoded in digital data pertaining not just to the geometry of a design but also to its physical or other behaviours within an environment. Digitally-driven architecture implies, therefore, not only digitally-designed and fabricated architecture, it also implies architecture – built form – that can be controlled, actuated, and animated by digital means. In this context, this sixth Footprint issue examines the influence of digital means as prag-matic and conceptual instruments for actuating architecture. The focus is not so much on computer-based systems for the development of architectural designs, but on architecture incorporating digital control, sens-ing, actuating, or other mechanisms that enable buildings to inter-act with their users and surroundings in real time in the real world through physical or sensory change and variation.
Pagbalangkas sa Arkitekturang Filipino: Alternatibong Kritikal na Tema sa Historyograpiyang Arkitektural
Edson Roy G. Cabalfin
Humanities Diliman , 2000,
Abstract: There is a need to restudy and reframe the methodologies we use to present the history of Filipino Architecture. The paper is rooted in the idea that the current approach to historiography of Filipino architecture renders architecture itself irrelevant and detached from the students of architectural history. Postcoloniality is seen here as a conscious break from traditional notions of historiography and a means of empowerment for the marginalized. In Filipino Architecture, this implies a non-elitist and anti-auratic approach in looking at architecture. Furthermore, there is also a shift in looking at architecture not just as mere products, but more importantly as a process. In lieu of the popular diachronic-historic approach to architectural history writing, a synchronic-thematic system is proposed. To understand further the relevance of architecture to the lives of the Filipino, five critical themes were proposed as alternative ways of looking at architecture. The themes are: Architecture as Signifier of Places and Settings; Architecture as a Mode of Signifying Meaning; Architecture as Process of Creativity; Architecture as Adaptation and Adjustment to the Environment; and Architecture as Sites of Power Relations. With these critical themes, Filipino architecture is seen as a means of empowering the Filipino instead of being the source of oppression.
ARSITEKTUR TRANSISI DI NUSANTARA DARI AKHIR ABAD 19 KE AWAL ABAD 20 (Studi Kasus Komplek Bangunan Militer di Jawa pada Peralihan Abad 19 ke 20)
Handinoto Handinoto,Samuel Hartono
Dimensi : Journal of Architecture and Built Environment , 2006,
Abstract: Transition Architecture usually takes place in a short time; that's why, it is often forgotten in architectural historical record. However, this brief transition architecture is very interesting to study, because it is essentially an integral part of the whole history of architectural development. This transition architectural form discussed in this paper is that of the Netherlands East Indies era, from the end of the 19th century to the beginning of the 20th century. The object of this study is the architecture of the Dutch military complex, which often slips from our attention. This matter may be caused by two things: first, the limited documentation at that time, and second, the brief period of this transition (only lasted in 20 to 30 years). Abstract in Bahasa Indonesia : Arsitektur transisi biasanya berlangsung sangat singkat, sehingga sering terlupakan dalam catatan sejarah (arsitektur). Meskipun demikian bentuk arsitektur transisi yang berlangsung cukup singkat tersebut sangat menarik untuk dipelajari, karena arsitektur transisi pada hakekatnya merupakan bagian yang tak terpisahkan dari sejarah perkembangan arsitektur secara keseluruhan. Bentuk arsitektur transisi yang dibahas kali ini adalah bentuk arsitektur di Hindia Belanda dari akhir abad 19 sampai awal abad ke 20. Dan yang menjadi obyek studi adalah arsitektur pada komplek militer Belanda di Jawa. Bentuk arsitektur ini sering lepas dari perhatian kita. Hal ini disebabkan karena dua hal. Yang pertama adalah minimnya dokumentasi waktu itu. Yang kedua dikarenakan waktunya sangat singkat sekali (antara 20 sampai 30 th). Tulisan ini akan membahas bentuk arsitektur peralihan tersebut. Kata kunci: arsitektur kolonial, arsitektur transisi.

Expectations for Presentation of Engineering and Scientific Mobile Platform Information within a Virtual Globe Geographic Information Systems  [PDF]
Brian Guise, Michael D. Proctor
Journal of Geographic Information System (JGIS) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/jgis.2011.32008
Abstract: Layered information systems like Google Earth have revolutionized public access to and visualization of geographic information through virtual globes. Separately, geo-specific technical information has been advanced in mobile platforms, both handheld and embedded devices, for the engineering and scientific communities. However, engineering and scientific information has had limited penetration into virtual globe Geographic Information Systems (GIS). This article explores unmet expectations which may be at the root of the issue. These expectations include design of the architecture within the originating mobile platform as well as expression of the level of accuracy and precision necessary for validity of the simulation displayed through the virtual globe GIS. The article below discusses architecture and validity research that advances real-time generation of simulated electro-magnetic coverage maps as composed layers within a mobile platform. Further, the research also enables real-time visualization of the simulated coverage maps by a global team through a virtual globe. Finally, for communication assurance purposes, the level of validity of the generated simulated coverage maps are analyzed from the perspective of an analog celestial body exploration mission by a mobile rover and its supporting organization analysis needs.
