How to Use Life-Cycle Dynamic Simulation to Optimize Process Plant Operations

The oil and gas production explosion is driving the renaissance of the chemical and process industries. With low-cost natural gas comes low-cost feedstock for many chemical compounds, in the form of ethane, propane, and butane, economically boosting the chemical industry. The American Chemistry Council released a report predicting capital investment of $72 billion in more […]

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 […]
