In this paper, the energy and power density of vehicles, energy-storing devices, and motors have been revisited. Hybrid propulsion systems like amphibious vehicles are considered along with normal propulsion modes. Power density reflects the amount of power delivered, and energy density reflects the range of systems. Power and energy densities of various transportation such as Electrically powered vehicles (EVs) Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) vehicles, Hybrid Vehicles (HVs), underwater vehicles, airplanes, ships, and hybrid mode transportation systems, are analyzed. The energy and power density of multi-mode propulsion are also calculated to explore the possibility of converting existing automobiles to multimode transportation systems as a part of retrofitting in the future. Power density matching for energy sources, ICE, motor, and coupling can lead to better operation of the propulsion system. This concept is parallel to the maximum power transfer theorem. Power density matching of all components associated with power flow can lead to better stability, lesser vibrations, and reduced maintenance of the system components. It reduces the need for frequent replacements of power components due to power stress. Energy density matching of all power flow components is equally important. A detailed study by considering various vehicles is presented in this paper.

In recent years, VoIP technology has become very popular among internet users as it allows the users to transfer their voice & video over an IP network. Its advantage is that it is cost-effective, works over traditional telephone networks, and is also compatible with the public switched telephone network. It is based on P2P architecture and allows users to communicate with each other in real-time through audio or video conferencing over the network. It consumes a lot of network bandwidth. That is why, the classification of VoIP traffic is important from the viewpoint of monitoring, prioritizing, or blocking such traffic by the ISPs or network administrators. Traditional classification techniques such as port-based and payload-based are ineffective since modern VoIP applications make use of random port numbers, encryption, or proprietary protocol to obfuscate their traffic. In this paper, we focus on classifying VoIP (video) traffic by utilizing a 2-step classification process. The 1st step uses a packet-level process, where P2P-port based technique is utilized to classify VoIP traffic. The traffic which remains un-classified as VoIP is then fed to the 2nd step classification process (i.e. flow-level process), which combines proposed heuristic rules (with a unique packet size distribution of VoIP traffic) and statistical-based technique to classify VoIP traffic. The experiments have been conducted on real traffic traces using offline datasets and results show that the proposed technique not only achieves high classification accuracy of over 98.6% but also works with both TCP & UDP protocols and is not affected even if traffic is encrypted.

This paper presents a comparison between the different adaptive algorithms for designing a cost-effective Anti-Noise Control (ANC) system. Typically, the ANC systems use linear FIR-adaptive filter Filtered- Least Mean Square (FxLMS) configuration. FxLMS is straightforward in hardware implementation but, its efficiency substantially degrades in case time-varying and non-linear acoustic environment and the probability that it will converge to local minima. Meanwhile, the implementation of Trigonometric Functional-Linear Adaptive Neural Network (FLANN) enhances ANC performance for non-linear noise signals. However, at the same time, it increases the complexity of hardware implementation and is unable to solve the problem of local minima convergence. Whereas evolutionary algorithms -Genetic Algorithm (GA) and metaheuristic algorithm Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) increase the robustness and stability in non-linear, and the time-varying acoustic environment with absolute zero probability to converge to local minima. This paper briefly discusses on implementation of FxLMS, FLANN, PSO, and GA-based ANC systems. Further, simulation compares Mean Square Error, BER, and PSNR to provide computational efficiency of these algorithms.

Light-emitting diodes have become very popular in general lighting due to their various advantages over other luminaires. Power consumption and LED size also play an important part in their selection over CFL’s. LEDs are compact and brighter and can be modelled according to the requirement. Due to the compact size of highpower LEDs, the temperature or heat produced by the LEDs will be more, so some efficient cooling methods must be employed. This paper compares heat dissipation through heat sinks of different sizes. This paper claims that the temperature of highpower LEDs cannot be lowered after reaching a certain point, as a result, an increase in the size of the heat sink at that particular level is useless.

Abstract: There is rapid development in the field of image processing. Now, there are a lot of models for face recognition in the whole world. In the field of image recognition, the arrival of deep learning theory has evolved drastically. In today’s world, biometric is used everywhere and the expectations from the system are that it provides positive results in any kind of situation as the quality, alignment, facial expression, and reflection of the picture make it difficult for the machine to validate it. Thus, there is an alternative model to the traditional neural network model which is Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) models which are deep learning models. This model includes the process in which at first the machine is trained with the data set and then the validation is done.

The concept/phenomenon of operons, which are organized genes that work in a coordinated way in microbes, is well established. Recent developments in genetics, biochemistry, and bioinformatics have unraveled similar gene arrangements in plants. Here we aim to develop an algorithm/tool which would help us detect and identify biosynthetic gene clusters (BGCs) from any input plant genome. Through this tool, we intend to match or supersede the performance of pre-existing sting tools for BGC prediction, like the popular plantiSMASH. The predictions models were developed using the machine learning tool WEKA using the physicochemical properties as data set to classify between terpene synthases and non-terpene synthases. A set of ten physicochemical properties were selected and their values were predicted for each of the 159 proteins (terpene synthases and non-terpene synthases) Employing the random forest and SMO classifiers, we were able to obtain significantly promising accuracy of over 90 percent with 66 percent percentage split testing. Accurate prediction of BGCs in the plants, especially the major food crops like rice, wheat, and corn revolutionize farming and nutrition for the better.

Canine Circovirus (CaCV) or Dog Circovirus (DogCV) causes hemorrhagic gastroenteritis, thrombocytopenia, vasculitis, hemorrhages, and neutropenia and is usually found as co-infection with other canine infectious agents like Parvovirus and Distemper virus in dogs including wild canines (wolf, fox, badger). To know the evolutionary feature of the viruses, nucleotide composition and Codon usage bias (CUB) have been used which further ascertain their adaptability towards the suitable host. In the present study CUB and Nucleotide composition of both cap & rep gene of around 88 CaCV strains were compared. Nucleotide composition of CDSs at 3rd codon position (G3% A3% T3% C3%) together with overall AT% and GC%, GC12, and GC3 were analyzed. using codon W 1.4.2 and CAIcal server, Aromo, and Gravy values, effective no of codons and relative synonymous codon usage values were also analyzed. The results show that CaCV has an AT-rich genome and codons ending with A/T have to preference over GC ending codons. Nc-GC3 plot of CanineCV reveals that selection pressure was dominant over mutation pressure. Correlation analysis between Gravy, Aroma, and CAI indicate natural selection over mutational pressure. The RSCU values of Cap & Rep genes were analyzed to find out overrepresented codons.

Patients suffering from COPD have decreased thoracic mobility which affects the functioning of the respiratory muscles. As the literature on thoracic mobility in COPD patients is scarce the present study focuses on assessing thoracic mobility in different grades of COPD with the help of a digital inclinometer. A total of 59 subjects were included in the present study (37 COPD and 22 Controls) and subcategorized into 4 groups according to the severity (GOLD’s Classification). Thoracic mobility on the left and right sides, both were found to be less in the COPD group as compared to the controls. There was a statistically significant difference for the left side thoracic mobility (p=0.00) between both groups with the mean value of 35.38 ± 6.92 for the COPD group and 44.49 ± 3.92 for control. There was a statistically significant difference for right side thoracic mobility between both groups (p =0.01) with the mean values of 40.08 ± 9.28 in the COPD group and 44.43 ± 4.22 for the control. The right and left thoracic mobility was found to be decreasing with increasing severity but the difference was not statistically significant. There is an alteration in the respiratory mechanic and shoulder girdle kinematics which alters the thoracic mobility. In the present study, the sample size for each subgroup of COPD was less. The mild and severe COPD subgroup had a limited sample and hence more studies should be conducted to understand the changes that happen in thoracic mobility due to an increase in severity. The thoracic mobility is affected in COPD patients and with increasing severity of COPD, the thoracic mobility decreases in this population.

Wireless Sensor Network Lifetime improvement is very well demonstrated using sink mobility effectively in the literature. The challenge taken up in the past research was to identify the shortest route that avoids obstacles and delivers the mobile sinks at the designated nodes. In this paper, we present a cluster-based approach for collecting the data and a heuristic algorithm for a well-planned work. The routing protocols may differ from application to application, due to a large number of sensor nodes the algorithm should be studied in a novel way. In this method, the nodes known as cluster heads collect information from different cluster points and sends data to the mobile sink following this clustering process. We also propose an energy-efficient data gathering algorithm for the collection of mobile sinks. Simulations were conducted using NS2 software to verify the efficiency of the proposed algorithm.

The earth holds several natural resources in itself. Water is the most crucial resource among them. However, anthropogenic activities in the proximity of water bodies are leading to water pollution. The primary concern is the textile industry, where water consumption and environmental risk are significant. The manner the water reaches into the water body is of primary concern as no proper treatment is done in many cases. The review mainly focuses on the use of microorganisms for degrading textile dyes in water through bioremediation. Among the different methods being explored for dye degradation, bioremediation is one of the most promising. It is easy to alter and more economical when applied to a commercial scale. Bioremediation is also a sustainable solution that can be harnessed at a large scale and for several generations. However, microbes with specific new biotechnological applications such as nanobiotechnology can give better results. Still, significantly less literature is available on this subject matter. Microbes are a powerful alternative for dye degradation as several bacteria and fungi can degrade many acidic and basic dyes in short periods. The effluent obtained at the end of the process does not have a tertiary effect, making these microbes an efficient choice for dye degradation.

Undeniably, public precincts are the stage that unfolds urban life every day, they foster social & economic bonds, bringing people together. Brick & Mortar retail market along streets is one of major mode for retail shopping in a city, in addition, these places play a pivotal role for connecting people with the physical environment and this is not a recent phenomenon but B & M retail market along streets have played this role since the origin of towns and cities. But, in recent past, rather than pedestrian there have been more flow of private vehicles in these public precincts. The position is deteriorating day by day as private vehicles are growing drastically, due to which on one hand quality of life is degraded and on other hands the aspects of public spaces had undermined in several cities. Thus, there is an immediate demand to give attention to all users at these places, so that they can stroll, communicate, shop, and comply with other social acts that are important for sustaining socio-culture aspects of cities. Along with tangible, intangible characteristics also play a pivotal role in maintaining the social & culture of any area, and as retail depicts one of the important elements of urban development so these non-physical characteristics should be incorporated in retail planning. This paper will provide insights to make planning parameters that can revive footfall in B & M stores and increase user satisfaction while physical shopping.

With the increase in population, usage of vehicles is also increasing at an alarming rate. People working round the clock and earning handsome amounts usually prefer four-wheelers to ease their journey from one location to another location. But this ease has now created a lot of problems as now more traffic jams can be seen than before and traveling time is again increasing for people bound with deadlines. So, now people have moved from four-wheelers to either two-wheelers or by foot. Also, while traveling to unknown places and roads, GPS is a must nowadays. But on two-wheelers, it is tough to use GPS on mobile phones. Moreover, the shoe is the necessity of life and when it comes to a blind person shoes can help to protect from pebbles and roads but obstacles cannot be avoided. So, we are trying to make it more convenient for blind people as well, so that with the help of sensors in front of shoes he/she will be indicated with vibrations to avoid the obstacles in the path. we are trying to make it more efficient by using new technology i.e., Smart shoe where information of path is retrieved from Google navigation database, and accordingly, the instructions are sent to the sensors installed in the shoes to take turns (i.e., U-Turn, left, right, etc.). All this can be achieved by interfacing the Bluetooth sensor placed in shoes and it would give signals to 4 sensors placed in four directions in shoes and when to take any specific turn it would vibrate. Also, this signal is provided to the Bluetooth sensor from a mobile application which will be connected to the Google navigation database.

Software effort estimation is an important part of the software development process as it strives to determine the success or failure of the project. The success of the project is entirely based on the prediction accuracy of the software effort estimation. There has been a major challenge in agile methodology adoption which is effort estimation but the conventional means of estimating the effort mainly results in inaccurate estimates so we need to follow an appropriate model approach. This paper is reviewed to focus on effort estimation in agile projects which is related to story points that help to prioritize user stories for faster deployment of the project and to review different hybrid models that are used to predict the effort. We reviewed the accuracy parameters based on three popular agile datasets and found that the Deep Belief Network-Ant Lion Optimizer (DBN-ALO) model works efficiently for all the datasets and outperforms all the other proposed hybrid models. Different techniques can be used for minimizing the effort estimation so that the tasks can be done efficiently.

Diabetes Mellitus is a heterogeneous metabolic disorder with various aetiologies that are characterized by chronic hyperglycemia. DM is a consequence of defective metabolism in the body was either cells fail to secrete insulin or insulin per se is inactive. Insulin is a pancreatic hormone responsible for glucose uptake and utilization by cells for energy production. Thus, insulin deficiency renders the cells unable to uptake and utilize glucose for metabolism. DM is majorly categorized into two conditions: Type 1, In this case, there is no enough insulin production by the pancreatic cells (Insulin-dependent). In type II, despite insulin production, the cells fail to respond to the hormone (Insulin Independent), the reason behind the former is not yet clear, but the latter is studied to be a result of obesity or inactivity. Thus, as a consequence of an error in glucose metabolism, it leads to comorbidities, with high glucose concentration in the blood causing damage to the circulatory and excretory system. This condition becomes life-threatening without proper medical care. Type 1 can be treated with an external source of insulin provided to the body. Type II is treated with hypoglycaemic drugs. Along with medicine, other options include an improved lifestyle with proper nutrition and exercise. The number of diabetes patients has been increased today. In the present review article, we have discussed the research reported to show medicinally important plants and plant-derived compounds which have been shown to affect insulin production and glucose intake and utilization in type 2 diabetes patients.

Using Renewable Electricity, Energy Storage, and Renewable Fuel to Produce Carbon-Neutral Process Heat and Power
Page: 512-527 (16)
Author: Rhys Jacob*, Martin Belusko, Shane Sheoran and Frank Bruno
In the pursuit of lower and more stable energy expenses coupled with lower carbon emissions, the industry is moving towards the integration of low-cost renewables. This can be achieved through a range of technologies and/or mechanisms, each with its own set of advantages and disadvantages. One potential solution to achieve low-cost, predictable, and low-carbon process heat and power is the coupling of renewable electricity with thermal energy storage backed up by renewable fuel. This combination takes advantage of the low-cost but variable renewable generation coupled with the dispatchability of thermal energy storage with robustness added by utilizing a higher cost but low volume renewable fuel. With this approach, a lower overall cost, dispatchable, robust, and carbon-neutral solution to process heat and power is realized. Therefore, in the current study, several combinations of renewable technologies coupled with electrically charged thermal storage (ECTES) and renewable fuel were designed and simulated to meet the process heat needs of two hypothetical scenarios. The solutions were then evaluated based on their economic (levelised cost of heat and power) and environmental (carbon emission avoided) merits to determine feasible solutions. Of the two studied cases, replacing diesel for heating at a mine site with solar PV, wind, ECTES, and renewable diesel delivered significant financial and environmental benefits. Unfortunately, at today’s prices replacing natural gas heating with solar PV, ECTES, and biomethane is not economically feasible without further cost reductions and/or a carbon tax.

Page: 528-554 (27)
Author: Ming Liu*, Soheila Riahi, Shane Sheoran, Frank Bruno, Rhys Jacob and Martin Belusko
With the advent of modern technologies in concentrated solar power(CSP), research focus has moved to cost reduction to make CSP a competitive alternative to the conventional heat source for power generation. One way to achieve this is by increasing the storage temperature so that size of thermal storage is lower which leads to reduced engineering and maintenance costs. To incorporate the CSP into power generation, one way to reduce the cost is to employ the higher temperature to improve the efficiency of the supercritical carbon dioxide Brayton power cycle. In the current study, a variety of phase change materials (PCMs) and graphite and their combination were assessed. For efficient heat transfer between PCM and heat transfer fluid, a shell and tube configuration was assessed as a suitable arrangement. The storage mediums can be contained in four indirect shell-and-tube configurations, including 3-PCM and 5-PCM cascade storage, PCM-graphite-PCM hybrid storage, and a single graphite storage tank. The sizing and design of the TES systems were performed by using a dynamic cycling methodology based on a transient 2D numerical model. The cost of these TES designs configurations was determined by using an economic model. This work also investigates the impact of some geometric parameters and cost assumptions on the techno-economic performance of the TES system. The analysis suggests a scenario exists whereby a low efficient storage system with less tube or lesser storage material could be more cost-effective. Overall, the cost of hybrid TES is the lowest among all studied systems, $26.96/kWht and $21.49/kWht for charging temperatures of 720 °C and 750 °C, respectively, followed by the 5-PCM storage of $28.06/kWht and $21.82/kWht.
