Real time evolutionary algorithms in robotic neural control systems. (2006)
Thesis
JAGADEESAN, A.P. 2006. Real time evolutionary algorithms in robotic neural control systems. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

This thesis describes the use of a Real-Time Evolutionary Algorithm (RTEA) to optimise an Artificial Neural Network (ANN) on-line (in this context on-line means while it is in use). Traditionally, Evolutionary Algorithms (Genetic Algorithms, Evolutio... Read More about Real time evolutionary algorithms in robotic neural control systems..

The selection of a suitable maintenance strategy for wind turbines. (2006)
Journal Article
ANDRAWUS, J.A., WATSON, J., KISHK, M. and ADAM, A. 2006. The selection of a suitable maintenance strategy for wind turbines. Wind engineering [online], 30(6), pages 471-486. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1260/030952406779994141

Common maintenance strategies applied to wind turbines include 'Time-Based' which involves carrying out maintenance tasks at predetermined regular-intervals and 'Failur-Based' which entails using a wind turbine until it fails. However, the consequenc... Read More about The selection of a suitable maintenance strategy for wind turbines..

Complexity management of H.264/AVC video compression. (2006)
Thesis
KANNANGARA, C.S. 2006. Complexity management of H.264/AVC video compression. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

The H. 264/AVC video coding standard offers significantly improved compression efficiency and flexibility compared to previous standards. However, the high computational complexity of H. 264/AVC is a problem for codecs running on low-power hand held... Read More about Complexity management of H.264/AVC video compression..

Investigation into modelling of a fuel cell stack system. (2006)
Conference Proceeding
ALI, D.M. and SALMAN, S.K. 2006. Investigation into modelling of a fuel cell stack system. In Proceedings of 41st international Universities power engineering conference 2006 (UPEC 2006), 6-8 September 2006, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK, vol III. Piscataway: IEEE [online], pages 137-141. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1109/UPEC.2006.367723

Noticing the rise in the electricity prices, worrying about the CO 2 emissions and global warming and not sure about living with nuclear power stations, makes everyone think from where energy will come in the coming years. What is needed is a zero-em... Read More about Investigation into modelling of a fuel cell stack system..

A comprehensive review of the fuel cells technology and hydrogen economy. (2006)
Conference Proceeding
ALI, D.M. and SALMAN, S.K. 2006. A comprehensive review of the fuel cells technology and hydrogen economy. In Proceedings of 41st international Universities power engineering conference 2006 (UPEC 2006), 6-8 September 2006, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK, vol III. Piscataway: IEEE [online], pages 98-102. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1109/UPEC.2006.367723

The degrading of the air quality resulting from the emissions of the existing energy conversion devices, in addition to the recent instability of the oil prices forced the need to a more stable zero-emission distribution generation technology or comb...
