  • Electric vehicles as configurable distributed energy storage in the smart grid 

    Pang, ChengZong; Aravinthan, Visvakumar; Wang, Xiaoyun (IEEE, 2014-03-11)
    Studying the impact of PHEVs/BEVs is quite complex since no other approach before had the unique capability of acting as dispersed and yet mobile energy storage that may be aggregated at different scales. This paper aims ...
  • Zeta function of self-adjoint operators on surfaces of revolution 

    Lu, Tianshi; Jeffres, Thalia D.; Kirsten, Klaus (IOP Publishing, 2015-04-10)
    In this article we analyze the zeta function for the Laplace operator on a surface of revolution. A variety of boundary conditions, separated and unseparated, are considered. Formulas for several residues and values of the ...
  • Exploration of molecular pathways mediating electric field-directed Schwann cell migration by RNA-Seq 

    Yao, Li; Li, Yongchao; Knapp, Jennifer; Smith, Peter (John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2015-07)
    In peripheral nervous systems, Schwann cells wrap around axons of motor and sensory neurons to form the myelin sheath. Following spinal cord injury, Schwann cells regenerate and migrate to the lesion and are involved in ...
  • 2(4) Factorial Design for Joint Effect of Ambient temperature and capacitor price, size and phase kVArs on line loss

    In this paper a single replicate of a 24 factorial design for the joint effect of four factors-ambient temperature, capacitor price, capacitor size and capacitor phase kVArs-on line loss is presented. Each Factor has two ...
  • Optimal generation planning to improve storage cost and system conditions 

    Aburub, Haneen Mohammad Dawou; Jewell, Ward T. (IEEE, 2014-07)
    This paper presents an optimal generation planning study implemented in MATPOWER that includes bulk electric energy storage and renewables to optimize the operating cost of bulk energy storage and transmission system conditions.
  • Fast effective deterministic primality test using CUDA/GPGPU 

    Asaduzzaman, Abu; Maiti, Anindya; Yip, Chok M. (Council for Innovative Research, 2015-01-04)
    There are great interests in understanding the manner by which the prime numbers are distributed throughout the integers. Prime numbers are being used in secret codes for more than 60 years now. Computer security authorities ...
