For fast trains, cab signalling is unavoidable. And the search for cab signalling has been going on for almost a century. This chapter discusses cost-effective and dependable wireless cab signalling. Traditional land post light signals operated from the station are the present mode of signalling in Indian railways, and the light signals regulate train movement. Due to poor vision caused by climatic circumstances [mist and heavy rain], fast blind corners, up and downs, and blinding sunlight, it is frequently impossible … Continue reading “Performance Improvement of Indian Railway Signaling: Recent Advances and Development”

A Novel Approach Based on Hybridization of Fuzzy C-MEANS and Competitive Agglomeration for Image Segmentation

Posted on May 18, 2021May 18, 2021Categories engineeringTags , ,   Leave a comment on A Novel Approach Based on Hybridization of Fuzzy C-MEANS and Competitive Agglomeration for Image Segmentation

The goal of the suggested research was to see how well fuzzy C- means and competitive agglomeration combined for image segmentation. It’s a vector quantization approach based on fuzzy clustering. Image segmentation is the process of dividing a digital image into several segments. Various strategies based on conventional approaches have been developed for segmentation, including region rising, threshold procedure, and watershed transform. Segmentation based on clustering techniques has emerged as a result of the disadvantages of these methodologies. Data clustering … Continue reading “A Novel Approach Based on Hybridization of Fuzzy C-MEANS and Competitive Agglomeration for Image Segmentation”

Research on Power Quality Improvement in Distribution System with Induction Motor Load Using Fuzzy Logic Controlled UPQC

Posted on May 18, 2021May 18, 2021Categories engineeringTags , , ,   Leave a comment on Research on Power Quality Improvement in Distribution System with Induction Motor Load Using Fuzzy Logic Controlled UPQC

The operation of a unified power quality conditioner (UPQC) as a universal active power conditioning device to minimise both current and voltage distortions at the distribution end of a power system network is described in this study. The UPQC is made up of a common DC link capacitor shared by a series active power filter (DVR) and a shunt active power filter (DSTATCOM). A fuzzy logic controller controls the series compensator, which is used to restore voltage. The operation of … Continue reading “Research on Power Quality Improvement in Distribution System with Induction Motor Load Using Fuzzy Logic Controlled UPQC”

Phase Disposition PWM Based Multi Level Inverter with Reduced Number of Switches

Posted on May 18, 2021May 18, 2021Categories engineeringTags , ,   Leave a comment on Phase Disposition PWM Based Multi Level Inverter with Reduced Number of Switches

The phase disposition pulse width modulation (PDPWM) based Reduced Switch Reverse Voltage (RSRV) multi level inverter is investigated and analysed in this chapter. This inverter has a smaller number of components than others. The amplitude and frequency modulation index values are examined in relation to improving output power quality using PDPWM. This PDPWM-based 9-level inverter produces a superior harmonic spectrum due to decreased components and an odd-valued frequency modulation index value. All of the lower order harmonics are well within … Continue reading “Phase Disposition PWM Based Multi Level Inverter with Reduced Number of Switches”

Project Management Practices: The Malaysian Insights and Trends

The requirement for offering value-for-money projects has risen, especially in light of the current inconceivable amount of economic damage caused by the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), which has affected 219 nations and territories, including Malaysia. The famous iron triangle, which includes time, cost, and quality, is widely regarded by project management practitioners around the world as a major contributor to the difficulty of managing one-off, unique, and dynamic projects. In the absence of proper project management methods, these triple restrictions … Continue reading “Project Management Practices: The Malaysian Insights and Trends”

Insect tea is a unique type of tea that differs from regular tea. Its production locations are primarily in rural areas of China inhabited by ethnic minorities, and its production mode is ethnically distinct. Kuding tea, Hawk tea, and fragrant leaves were obtained as fresh leaves from wild plants. Simple steaming reduced the astringency of the leaves, which were then dried in the sun. The leaves were then layer by layer placed in the bamboo basket. The leaves’ scent enticed … Continue reading “Bioactivity of Chinese Insect Tea”

The first paragraph is an introduction. Ischemic heart disease is the first on the list of the top ten most common causes of death in 2016, according to WHO figures, independent of the state’s economic status. A study was done to learn more about whether and to what extent ischemic heart disease mortality is linked to external factors such as the planetary magnetic field, solar radiation, and galactic cosmic rays. Methods and Materials: Ischemic heart disease mortality statistics from credible … Continue reading “Does the Angel of Death Sometimes Use Solar Alpha Particles to Take Our Souls?”

In Nepal’s Kaski and Kapilvastu districts, this study looks at the effectiveness of the Prosperity Realization via Irrigation and Smallholder Market (PRISM) approach on farmer income and poverty reduction. The study was based on a purposive sample of diverse vegetable farmer groups from IDE projects that were performed and finished utilising the PRISM technique. In the vegetable farming of the project area, the sample included 105 household heads from 15 farmer groups in Kaski and 168 family heads from 24 … Continue reading “PRISM Approach and Its Impact on Poverty Reduction in Nepal”

Studies in Second Language Acquisition

Oral communication competency allows language speakers to communicate effectively with one another. Because oral expression is a manner of expressing thinking and providing feedback and development through the linguistic function, oral communicative competence encompasses a broad semantic scope (Vygotsky, 1992; [1,2,3]). The use of the language as a medium of communication, both oral and written, representation, interpretation, and reality comprehension is the foundation of English communicative competence. The purpose of this study is to look into the oral communicative skills … Continue reading “Studies in Second Language Acquisition”
