Gelin Zhang, Fengfei Xing, Peiguang Yan, Huifeng Wei, Huiquan Li, Shisheng Huang, Rongyong Lin, Kangkang Chen
Optics and Photonics Journal (OPJ) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/opj.2013.32B011

A double cladding seven-core PCF was presented for high power supercontinuum generation. The calculated zero dispersion wavelength is located at 912 nm, which has a good agreement with the measurement. The attenuation is measured 6 dB/km at 1590 nm and lower than 14.5 dB/km at 1060 nm, the water-loss peak at 1380 nm is about 134 dB/km; Supercontinuum spanning over more than 1500 nm was generated when the designed seven-core PCF was pumped by a gain-switching Yetterbium-doped fiber laser. These results will be helpful in the future design of multicore photonic crystal fibers (MCPCF) with proper guidance properties for high power supercontinuum generation.

Electricity Cost Minimization for a Residential Smart Grid with Distributed Generation and Bidirectional Power Transactions
Yi Liu,Naveed Ul Hassan,Shisheng Huang,Chau Yuen
Mathematics , 2012,
Abstract: In this paper, we consider the electricity cost minimization problem in a residential network where each community is equipped with a distributed power generation source and every household in the community has a set of essential and shiftable power demands. We allow bi-directional power transactions and assume a two-tier pricing model for the buying and selling of electricity from the grid. In this situation, in order to reduce the cost of electricity we are required to make, 1) Scheduling decisions for the shiftable demands, 2) The decisions on the amount of energy purchased from the gird by the users, 3) The decisions on the amount of energy sold to the grid by the users. We formulate a global centralized optimization problem and obtain the optimal amount of electricity consumed, sold and purchased for each household, respectively by assuming the availability of all current and future values of time-varying parameters. In reality, the lack of perfect information hampers the implementation of such global centralized optimization. Hence, we propose a distributed online algorithm which only requires the current values of the timevarying supply and demand processes. We then compare and determine the tradeoff between both formulations. Simulation results show that the proposed schemes can provide effective management for household electricity usage.
Demand Shaping to Achieve Steady Electricity Consumption with Load Balancing in a Smart Grid
Naveed Ul Hassan,Xiumin Wang,Shisheng Huang,Chau Yuen
Mathematics , 2012,
Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to study conflicting objectives between the grid operator and consumers in a future smart grid. Traditionally, customers in electricity grids have different demand profiles and it is generally assumed that the grid has to match and satisfy the demand profiles of all its users. However, for system operators and electricity producers, it is usually most desirable, convenient and cost effective to keep electricity production at a constant rate. The temporal variability of electricity demand forces power generators, especially load following and peaking plants to constantly manipulate electricity production away from a steady operating point.
Demand Response Management For Power Throttling Air Conditioning Loads In Residential Smart Grids
Yawar Ismail Khalid,Naveed Ul Hassan,Chau Yuen,Shisheng Huang
Computer Science , 2014,
Abstract: In this paper we develop an algorithm for peak load reduction to reduce the impact of increased air conditioner usage in a residential smart grid community. We develop Demand Response Management (DRM) plans that clearly spell out the maximum duration as well as maximum severity of inconvenience. We model the air conditioner as a power throttling device and for any given DRM plan we study the impact of increasing the number of power states on the resulting peak load reduction. Through simulations, we find out that adding just one additional state to the basic ON/OFF model, which can throttle power to 50% of the rated air conditioner power, can result in significant amount of peak reduction. However, the peak load that can be reduced is diminishing with the increase in number of states. Furthermore, we also observe the impact of inconvenience duration and inconvenience severity in terms of peak load reduction. These observations can serve as useful guidelines for developing appropriate DRM plans.
Implication of Posttranslational Histone Modifications in Nucleotide Excision Repair

International Journal of Molecular Sciences , 2012, DOI: 10.3390/ijms131012461
Abstract: Histones are highly alkaline proteins that package and order the DNA into chromatin in eukaryotic cells. Nucleotide excision repair (NER) is a conserved multistep reaction that removes a wide range of generally bulky and/or helix-distorting DNA lesions. Although the core biochemical mechanism of NER is relatively well known, how cells detect and repair lesions in diverse chromatin environments is still under intensive research. As with all DNA-related processes, the NER machinery must deal with the presence of organized chromatin and the physical obstacles it presents. A huge catalogue of posttranslational histone modifications has been documented. Although a comprehensive understanding of most of these modifications is still lacking, they are believed to be important regulatory elements for many biological processes, including DNA replication and repair, transcription and cell cycle control. Some of these modifications, including acetylation, methylation, phosphorylation and ubiquitination on the four core histones (H2A, H2B, H3 and H4) or the histone H2A variant H2AX, have been found to be implicated in different stages of the NER process. This review will summarize our recent understanding in this area.

Impact of Scheduling Flexibility on Demand Profile Flatness and User Inconvenience in Residential Smart Grid System
Naveed Ul Hassan,Muhammad Adeel Pasha,Chau Yuen,Shisheng Huang,Xiumin Wang
Energies , 2013, DOI: 10.3390/en6126608
Abstract: The objective of this paper is to study the impact of scheduling flexibility on both demand profile flatness and user inconvenience in residential smart grid systems. Temporal variations in energy consumption by end users result in peaks and troughs in the aggregated demand profile. In a residential smart grid, some of these peaks and troughs can be eliminated through appropriate load balancing algorithms. However, load balancing requires user participation by allowing the grid to re-schedule some of their loads. In general, more scheduling flexibility can result in more demand profile flatness, however the resulting inconvenience to users would also increase. In this paper, our objective is to help the grid determine an appropriate amount of scheduling flexibility that it should demand from users, based on which, proper incentives can be designed. We consider three different types of scheduling flexibility (delay, advance scheduling and flexible re-scheduling) in flexible loads and develop both optimal and sub-optimal scheduling algorithms. We discuss their implementation in centralized and distributed manners. We also identify the existence of a saturation point. Beyond this saturation point, any increase in scheduling flexibility does not significantly affect the flatness of the demand profile while user inconvenience continues to increase. Moreover, full participation of all the households is not required since increasing user participation only marginally increases demand profile flatness.
Energy Storage Sharing in Smart Grid: A Modified Auction Based Approach
Wayes Tushar,Bo Chai,Chau Yuen,Shisheng Huang,David Smith,H. Vincent Poor,Zaiyue Yang
Computer Science , 2015,
Abstract: This paper studies the solution of joint energy storage (ES) ownership sharing between multiple shared facility controllers (SFCs) and those dwelling in a residential community. The main objective is to enable the residential units (RUs) to decide on the fraction of their ES capacity that they want to share with the SFCs of the community in order to assist them storing electricity, e.g., for fulfilling the demand of various shared facilities. To this end, a modified auction-based mechanism is designed that captures the interaction between the SFCs and the RUs so as to determine the auction price and the allocation of ES shared by the RUs that governs the proposed joint ES ownership. The fraction of the capacity of the storage that each RU decides to put into the market to share with the SFCs and the auction price are determined by a noncooperative Stackelberg game formulated between the RUs and the auctioneer. It is shown that the proposed auction possesses the incentive compatibility and the individual rationality properties, which are leveraged via the unique Stackelberg equilibrium (SE) solution of the game. Numerical experiments are provided to confirm the effectiveness of the proposed scheme.
Cost Minimization of Charging Stations with Photovoltaics: An Approach with EV Classification
Wayes Tushar,Chau Yuen,Shisheng Huang,David Smith,H. Vincent Poor
Computer Science , 2015,
Abstract: This paper proposes a novel electric vehicle (EV) classification scheme for a photovoltaic (PV) powered EV charging station (CS) that reduces the effect of intermittency of electricity supply as well as reducing the cost of energy trading of the CS. Since not all EV drivers would like to be environmentally friendly, all vehicles in the CS are divided into three categories: 1) premium, 2) conservative, and 3) green, according to their charging behavior. Premium and conservative EVs are considered to be interested only in charging their batteries, with noticeably higher rate of charging for premium EVs. Green vehicles are more environmentally friendly, and thus assist the CS to reduce its cost of energy trading by allowing the CS to use their batteries as distributed storage. A different charging scheme is proposed for each type of EV, which is adopted by the CS to encourage more EVs to be green. A basic mixed integer programming (MIP) technique is used to facilitate the proposed classification scheme. It is shown that the uncertainty in PV generation can be effectively compensated, along with minimization of total cost of energy trading to the CS, by consolidating more green EVs. Real solar and pricing data are used for performance analysis of the system. It is demonstrated that the total cost to the CS reduces considerably as the percentage of green vehicles increases, and also that the contributions of green EVs in winter are greater than those in summer.
