An existing goods accounting information system was assessed for possible infrastructure optimization. A various parts of the system were analyzed to improve infrastructure costs without having a significant degradation of non-functional requirements. Modeling of the optimized system was performed, and evaluation of the infrastructure costs was made. Several optimization directions were evaluated, analyzed and either recommended or rejected.
The error of measuring the temperature of gas flows by contact methods consists of two main components: 1) the error that occurs in the process of measuring the physical quantity into which the temperature is converted (the error of the measuring means); 2) errors arising in the process of converting the temperature into a measured physical value using a thermo transducer.
This research involved optimizing acid hydrolysis in the development of ethanol, a promising alternative energy source for restricted crude oil, from lignocellulosic materials (bamboo). The conversion of bamboo to ethanol can mainly be accomplished through three process steps: pretreatment of bamboo wood for the removal of lignin and hemicellulose, acid hydrolysis of pretreated bamboo for the conversion of cellulose into sugar reduction (glucose) and fermentation of sugars into ethanol using anaerobic Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
As a part of preliminary studies, the possibility of quantitative oxidation of aldehydes to carboxylic acids and their determination by isocratic ion chromatography with conductometric detection has been tested.
Comparative analysis of the effectiveness of monolithic and cyclic noise protective codes built on "Ideal Ring Bundles" (IRBs) as the common theoretical basis for synthesis, researches and application of the codes for improving technical indexes of coding systems with respect to performance, reliability, transformation speed, and security has been realized. IRBs are cyclic sequences of positive integers, which form perfect partitions of a finite interval of integers. Sums of connected IRB elements enumerate the natural integers set exactly R-times.
This study demonstrates the effect of operating conditions (Red-GHSV, inlet H2/CO, Oprat-GHSV) and the effect of Fe-Co-Ce nanocatalyst support. A statistical model using the response surface methodology (RSM) was applied with the target of achieving higher olefins selectivity in Fischer-Tropsch synthesis, which indicates the interaction effects of factors. The conditions under which three objectives optimization for maximizing olefins and minimizing paraffins and methane were determined.
In the present study, the interactive effects of the process variables containing copper concentration, temperature, and time on the efficiency of copper cementation by metallic aluminum particles were examined by using response surface methodology (RSM). It was observed that the efficiency of cementation increased with an increase in the initial concentration of copper, temperature and time. The multiple regression analysis to the experimental data was applied to see the interactive effects of process variables. The second-order polynomial equation was obtained.
The article presents the results of the study of the possibilities of using neural networks to solve the problem of determining the active set of a wind farm (WF), taking into account the efficiency of each wind turbines (WT).
The article investigates vibration and noise protection devices for wheeled vehicles using dynamic vibration absorbers (DVA). Algorithms for modeling their dynamic characteristics based on adaptive calculation schemes are presented. A non-linear suspension with DVA and a noise-absorbing partition is considered, which is due to the introduction of a layered composite thinwalled structure with an intermediate damping layer with high damping properties and a DVA system, which provides better vibration and noise absorption.
The purpose of the article is to develop a method for synthesis of the operative adaptive optimal control of the electric mode (EM) of an arc steel-melting furnace (ASF) by energy efficiency criteria based on three-dimensional (3-D) distribution of arc currents. The basis of the created method is the use of operative information on the parameters of 3-D distribution of arc currents and the search for the appropriate optimal control – set points for arc currents of a double-loop system of controlling the electric mode of an arc steel-melting furnace.
