Review on the Design of Web Based SCADA Systems Based on OPC DA Protocol
Hosny Ahmed Abbas, Ahmed M. Mohamed
International Journal of Computer Networks , 2011,
Abstract: One of the most familiar SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition)application protocols now is OPC protocol. This interface is supported by almostall SCADA, visualization, and process control systems. There are many researchefforts tried to design and implement an approach to access an OPC DA serverthrough the Internet. To achieve this goal they used diverse of modern ITtechnologies like XML, Webservices, Java and AJAX. In this paper, we present acomplete classification of the different approaches introduced in the litrature. Acomparative study is also introduced. Finally we study the feasibilty of therealization of these approaches based on the real time constraints imposed bythe nature of the problem.

Organization of Multi-Agent Systems: An Overview
Hosny Ahmed Abbas,Samir Ibrahim Shaheen,Mohammed Hussein Amin
Computer Science , 2015, DOI: 10.11648/j.ijiis.20150403.11
Abstract: In complex, open, and heterogeneous environments, agents must be able to reorganize towards the most appropriate organizations to adapt unpredictable environment changes within Multi-Agent Systems (MAS). Types of reorganization can be seen from two different levels. The individual agents level (micro-level) in which an agent changes its behaviors and interactions with other agents to adapt its local environment. And the organizational level (macro-level) in which the whole system changes it structure by adding or removing agents. This chapter is dedicated to overview different aspects of what is called MAS Organization including its motivations, paradigms, models, and techniques adopted for statically or dynamically organizing agents in MAS.
Simple, Flexible, and Interoperable SCADA System Based on Agent Technology  [PDF]
Hosny Abbas, Samir Shaheen, Mohammed Amin
Intelligent Control and Automation (ICA) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ica.2015.63018
Abstract: SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) is concerned with gathering process information from industrial control processes found in utilities such as power grids, water networks, transportation, manufacturing, etc., to provide the human operators with the required real-time access to industrial processes to be monitored and controlled either locally (on-site)or remotely (i.e., through Internet). Conventional solutions such as custom SCADA packages, custom communication protocols, and centralized architectures are no longer appropriate for engineering this type of systems because of their highly distribution and their uncertain continuously changing working environments. Multi-agent systems (MAS) appeared as a new architectural style for engineering complex and highly dynamic applications such as SCADA systems. In this paper, we propose an approach for simply developing flexible and interoperable SCADA systems based on the integration of MAS and OPC process protocol. The proposed SCADA system has the following advantages: 1) simple (easier to be implemented); 2) flexible (able to adapt to its environment dynamic changes); and 3) interoperable (relative to the underlying control systems, which belongs to diverse of vendors). The applicability of the proposed approach is demonstrated by a real case study example carried out in a paper mill.
MOS-2: A Two-Dimension Space for Positioning MAS Organizational Models
Hosny Abbas,Samir Shaheen
Computer Science , 2015,
Abstract: The increased complexity and dynamism of present and future Multi-Agent Systems (MAS) enforce the need for considering both of their static (design-time) and the dynamic (run-time) aspects. A type of balance between the two aspects can definitely give better results related to system stability and adaptivity. MAS organization is the research area that is concerned with these issues and it is currently a very active and interesting research area. Designing a MAS with an initial organization and giving it the ability to dynamically reorganize to adapt the dynamic changes of its unpredictable and uncertain environment, is the feasible way to survive and to run effectively. Normally, MAS organization is tackled by what is called, MAS organizational models, which are concerned with the description (formally or informally) of the structural and dynamical aspects of agent organizations. This paper proposes a two-dimension space, called MOS-2, for positioning and assessing MAS organizational models based on two dimensions: their adopted engineering viewpoint (agent-centered or organization-centered) as the vertical dimension and the agents awareness/unawareness of the existence of the organizational level as the horizontal dimension. The MOS-2 space is applied for positioning a number of familiar organizational models. Its future trends and possible improvements are highlighted. They include the following, (1) adding Time as a dimension, (2) increasing the considered dimensions, (3) providing a quantitative approach for positioning MAS organizational models.
Efficient Web-Based SCADA System
Hosny A. Abbas
Computer Science , 2015,
Abstract: Computer-based supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems have evolved over the past four decades, from standalone, compartmentalized operations into networked architectures that communicate across large distances. There is an emerging trend comprising SCADA and conventional IT units toward consolidating some overlapping activities. This trend is motivated by cost savings achieved by consolidating disparate platforms, networks, software, and maintenance tools. For reasons of efficiency, maintenance, economics, data acquisition, control platforms have migrated from isolated in-plant networks using proprietary hardware and software to PC-based systems using standard software, network protocols, and the Internet. In this thesis, we present an approach for web-based SCADA systems that adapt to the behavior of the target application. In addition, we take into account the real time constraints that imposed by the nature of the problem. We show that our approach is more efficient than other approaches in terms of consuming as little as possible of the available resources (computational power and network bandwidth).
Metachronous double malignancy involving the kidney and the breast: A case report  [PDF]
Osama Ahmed, Tahir Abbas
Case Reports in Clinical Medicine (CRCM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/crcm.2014.32016

The occurrence of multiple primary cancers is rare; it can be missed as a disease progression. The etiology remains controversial. We report a case of a 55-year-old female with metastatic renal cell carcinoma treated with sutent followed by left sided nephrectomy. Follow-up CT showed increase in the size of the right axillary lymph nodes which was proven after biopsy to be metastatic adenocarcinoma of the breast. Any suspicious disease progression in a single site not compatible with disease history should be biopsied for confirmation. The relationship between renal cell carcinoma and breast cancer is still unclear, and more case reports are required to determine this relationship.

Adaptive Agent-Based SCADA System
Hosny Abbas,Samir Shaheen,Mohammed Amin
Computer Science , 2015,
Abstract: Modern supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems comprise variety of industrial equipment such as physical control processes, logical control systems, communication networks, computers, and communication protocols. They are concerned with control and supervision of production control processes. Modern SCADA networks contain highly distributed information, control, and location. Moreover, they contain large number of heterogeneous components situated in highly changing and uncertain environments. As a result, engineering modern SCADA is a challenging issue and conventional engineering approaches are no longer suitable for them because of their increasing complexity and highly distribution. In this research, Multi-Agent Systems (MAS) are used to enable building adaptive agent-based SCADA system by modeling system components as agents in the micro level and as organizations or societies of agents in the macro level. A prototype has been implemented and evaluated within a simulation environment for demonstrating the adaptive behavior of the system-to-be, which results in continuous improvement of system performance.
Study of Erythropoeitin on IGM serum levels in HCV positive patients on regular HD

Egyptian Journal of Hospital Medicine , 2012,
Abstract: Both uremia and HD process cause immunosuppression in HD patients. There was significant increase of total serum IgG and IgM levels found in patients with chronic HCV compared with healthy controls. There is evidence pointing to direct effect of rHuEPO upon B cells. High doses of recombinant human erythropoietin (rHu EPO) enhanced in vitro Ig production and proliferation of various plasma cell lines, as well as human plasma cells generated in vitro. Study was conducted at hemodialysis Unit of Shubra Municipal hospital between August 2010 to February 2011. 30 HCV positive patients on regular hemodialysis were included in study, using bicarbonate dialysate and polysulfone membrane dialyser, for 4 hours 3 times weekly. Patients were divided into 2 groups: first group: 15 patients on EPO therapy. 4000 IU/week and second group not taking EPO for all patients full clinical examination was done, CBC, BUN, serum creatinine, ALT, AST, serum albumin and serum IgM by ELISA (quantitative assay), were done. There was no significant difference between 2 groups as regards age, sex distribution, WBC count, ALT, AST, serum creatinine, BUN and IgM serum level. First group had borderline significant higher Hgb and Hct than second group (p = 0.056). Females didn't have higher serum IgM level than males (p = 0.403). All correlations of IgM serum level to other parameters of study were irrelevant. Uremia seems to protect ESRD patients on regular HD from complications of HCV and also EPO effect on Ig serum levels.

Abdel-Shafy A. Nafeh, Emad Ahmed Sweelem, Faten Hosny Fahmy
Smart Grid and Renewable Energy (SGRE) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/sgre.2013.42018

The medical herbs should be dried directly after harvesting, otherwise, insects and fungi spoilage them. Conventional drying methods such as open sun drying and conventional fuel dryers are not suitable, since they contaminate the herbs, decrease the drying efficiency and at the same time increase the drying cost. Therefore, the recent trend is toward the harnessing the renewable energy to dry the medical herbs. This paper presents a new controlled drying system, which uses a solar collector and an electric heater to heat the drying air, and a PV-WIND hybrid system to supply the required electric energy to the dryer electric load. This paper also presents the dynamic modeling, simulation, and control of the suggested thermal system (i.e., the solar thermal system and the electrical heater). Moreover, this paper, exhibits the different results of the thermal system, to check the effectiveness of this system that fulfills the requirements of the drying operation. The system results are found to satisfy the ultimate goals of the drying operation.
