    • Uncertainty Analysis of Large-scale Power Systems Using Collocation 

      Taylor, J.A.; Hover, F.S.; Ouroua, A. (, undated)
      Collocation algorithms for efficiently solving stochastic differential equations arising from modeling uncertainty in large-scale systems are presented. The resulting solutions are integrated to compute statistical moments, ...
    • Use of Anion Exchange Resins for One-Step Processing of Algae from Harvest to Biofuel 

      Jones, J.; Lee, C-H.; Wang, J.; Poenie, M. (MDPI, 2012-07)
      Some microalgae are particularly attractive as a renewable feedstock for biodiesel production due to their rapid growth, high content of triacylglycerols, and ability to be grown on non-arable land. Unfortunately, obtaining ...
    • Using the Mixed Newton-Euler Formulation in the Orientation Control of Flexibly Mounted Bodies 

      Smith, R.D.; Weldon, W.F.; Rech, B.M.; Connolly, T.J. (, 1997-06)
      Extended bodies whose own flexibility may conditionally be neglected can often be faithfully treated directly by any of several formulations based on classical dynamics. Here, the mixed approach employing the Newton-Euler ...
    • Variable Speed Operation of Turbogenerators to Improve Part-load Efficiency 

      Li, D.; Dougal, R.A.; Thirunavukarasu, E.; Ouroua, A. (IEEE, 2013-04)
      Our investigation of variable speed operation of turbogenerators, including both single-shaft and twin-shaft variants, shows significant opportunities to improve part-load efficiency in those certain electrical power ...
    • Viscoelasticity of Composite Structures for Compulsators 

      Thompson, R.C.; Brinkman, W.G.; Kitzmiller, J.R.; Walls, W.A.; Beno, J.H. (, 1998-05)
      The University of Texas at Austin Center for Electromechanics (UT-CEM) is a research center which specializes in pulse power technology. DoD's mission for high performance power sources has lead UT-CEM to incorporate ...
    • VPI Processes and Resin Evaluations for CPA Electrical Windings 

      Brinkman, W.G.; Kitzmiller, J. R.; Werst, M. D. (, undated)
      High energy density requirements for fieldable electric gun applications has led to the air-core compensated pulsed alternator (CPA) or compulsator as the generator of choice to provide pulse power. The air-core nature of ...
    • Waveform-level time-domain simulation comparison study of three shipboard power system architectures 

      Lee, Y.; Zivi, E.; Langston, J.; Steurer, M.; Dougal, R.A.; Zhang, Y.; Crider, J.; Sudhoff, S.D.; Hebner, R.; Ouroua, A. (, 2012)
      Detailed waveform-level modeling and simulation of three alternative shipboard power system architectures is presented herein. The three system architectures are based on conventional 60Hz medium-voltage ac (MVAC), ...
