Applications of Thermoelectric Modules on Heat Flow Detection

Abstract: This paper presents quantitative analysis and practical scenarios of implementation of the thermoelectric module for heat flow detection. Mathematical models of the thermoelectric effects are derived to describe the heat flow from/to the detected media. It is observed that the amount of the heat flow through the thermoelectric module proportionally induces the conduction heat owing […]

Fault-Tolerant-Synchronization-of-Chaotic-Gyroscope-Systems

Fault Tolerant Synchronization of Chaotic Heavy Symmetric Gyroscope Systems

Abstract: In this paper, fault tolerant synchronization of chaotic gyroscope systems versus external disturbances via Lyapunov rule-based fuzzy control is investigated. Taking the general nature of faults in the slave system into account, a new synchronization scheme, namely, fault tolerant synchronization, is proposed, by which the synchronization can be achieved no matter whether the faults and […]

How to Use the Cloud to Store and Distribute Manufacturing Data

Cloud-based human-machine interface (HMI) software, databases, and historians are ideal gateways to deliver practical and actionable machine, manufacturing, and plant information to those who need it. Harnessing cloud capabilities to harvest data from plant floor automation systems and then distributing this data to users is a powerful combination that can save money, speed implementation, enhance […]

Hybrid Intelligent Method for Recognition of Common Types of Control Chart Patterns

Abstract: Automatic recognition of abnormal patterns in control charts has seen increasing demands nowadays in manufacturing processes. This paper presents a novel hybrid intelligent method (HIM) for recognition of the common types of control chart pattern (CCP). The proposed method includes two main modules: a clustering module and a classifier module. In the clustering module, the […]

Is Your PM Program Passive, Preventative, Predictive or Proactive?

There are so many acronyms and so little understanding of what they mean. Not only do we have to interpret acronyms that are specific to our industry, the automation discipline, our companies, and what is perceived to be “common knowledge” across multiple sectors, but the expectation is that we do so consistently. These are tough […]

ISA Student Sections Spearhead Future Industrial Automation Workforce

Joining ISA back in 1989, I quickly discovered what a wonderful advocate the Society is for student workforce development activities and opportunities. During the past several years, I have witnessed the development of student sections and have attended meetings and other Society events where volunteers present opportunities for students to engage with mentors and practitioners. […]
