  • Laue, H.E.A. (Heinrich Edgar Arnold) (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2017-07)
    The conventional Nyquist-Shannon sampling theorem has been fundamental to the acquisition of signals for decades, relating a uniform sampling rate to the bandwidth of a signal. However, many signals can be compressed after ...
  • Zhang, Daoyuan; Mei, Jun; Miao, Peng (Elsevier, 2017-08)
    This paper addresses the problem of global finite-time synchronization of two different dimensional chaotic systems. Firstly, the definition of global finite-time synchronization of different dimensional chaotic systems ...
  • Grobler, Inus; Gitau, M.N. (Institution of Engineering and Technology, 2017-07)
    Conducted electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) noise qualification tests are normally carried out after a prototype has been designed, built and tested and the process is repeated in the event of non-compliance. The ability ...
  • Grobler, Inus; Gitau, M.N. (Institution of Engineering and Technology, 2017-07)
    Effects of polymer heatsink materials on electromagnetic interference (EMI) noise in converters have not been adequately investigated. Heatsinks provide a path to ground for the common-mode (CM) noise. Selecting an appropriate ...

    The rock physics model of coalbed methane (CBM) reservoir is signi cant for the study of CBM content. However, because of the adsorption and dissociation of the CBM reservoir, it is dif cult to establish models. In ...
  • Malekian, Reza; Yuan, Yupeng; Li, Zhixiong; Chen, Yongzhi; Chen, Ying (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2017)
    In this paper, the structural controllability of the systems over F(z) is studied using a new mathematical method-matroids. First, a vector matroid is de ned over F(z). Second, the full rank conditions of [sI AB](s 2 ) ...
  • Jose, Arun Cyril; Malekian, Reza (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2017-07)
    This paper explains various security issues in the existing home automation systems and proposes the use of logic-based security algorithms to improve home security. This paper classifies natural access points to a home ...
  • Kleynhans, Waldo; Theron, Andre; Engelbrecht, Jeanine; Kemp, Jaco; Turnbull, Terence (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2017-06)
    Sinkholes are an unpredictable geohazard that endanger life and property in dolomitic terrains. Sinkholes are a significant threat in Gauteng, South Africa’s most populated and urbanized province. Small-scale surface ...
  • Jose, Arun Cyril; Malekian, Reza; Ye, Ning (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2016-10)
    This paper explains the importance of accessing modern smart homes over the Internet, and highlights various security issues associated with it. This paper explains the evolution of device fingerprinting concept over time, ...
  • Muller, C.J. (Cornelius Jacobus); Craig, Ian K. (Elsevier, 2017-05)
    Petrochemical plants require the addition and removal of energy to and from the process and the movement of material to, from, and within the process piping and vessels. These fundamental mass and energy transfer requirements ...
  • Wanjiru, Evan M.; Xia, Xiaohua (Elsevier, 2017-07)
    Energy and water are inseparable resources whose management in urban residential buildings is important. Continuing urbanization in developing nations is increasing the demand yet the supply is inadequate or non-existent. ...
  • Naude , Neil; Sinha, Saurabh (Emerald, 2017-05)
    PURPOSE : This work aims to improve upon the linearity of integrated CMOS current sensors used in switch mode power supply topologies, using a low-cost and low-voltage (less than 1.2 V) CMOS technology node. Improved sensor ...
  • Henriques, Valdo; Malekian, Reza (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2016)
    This paper describes the work carried out on the design and construction of a mine safety system prototype using a wireless sensor network with the objective of building a safety system to monitor the ambient characteristics ...
  • Hancke, Gerhard P.; Oleyede, Muhtahir O. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2016)
    Biometric systems are used for the verification and identification of individuals using their physiological or behavioral features. These features can be categorized into unimodal and multimodal systems, in which the former ...
  • Nellore, Kapileswar; Hancke, Gerhard P. (MDPI Publishing, 2016)
    Vehicular traffic is endlessly increasing everywhere in the world and can cause terrible traffic congestion at intersections. Most of the traffic lights today feature a fixed green light sequence, therefore the green ...
  • Schwegmann, Colin Peter; Kleynhans, Waldo; Salmon, B.P. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2017-02)
    The detection of ships at sea is a complex task made more so by adverse weather conditions, lack of night visibility, and large areas of concern. Synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imagery with large swaths can provide the ...
  • Osuch, P.J. (Piotr); Stander, Tinus; Petrashin, Pablo; Toledo, Luis; Lancioni, Walter (Hindawi Publishing, 2017)
    Oscillation-based testing (OBT) has been proven to be a simple, yet effective VLSI test for numerous circuit types. This paper investigates, for the first time, the application of OBT verification for second generation ...
  • Xia, Xiaohua; Daoyuan, Zhang; Shen, Yanjun (Institute of Information Theory and Automation of Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, 2016)
    In this paper, we consider two kinds of sampled-data observer design for a class of nonlin- ear systems. The system output is sampled and transmitted under two kinds of truncations. Firstly, we present de nitions of the ...
  • Van Wyk, J.H. (Jacques Herman); Linde, Louis P.; Linde, Louis P. (Wiley, 2016-11)
    This paper describes the preliminary design and simulation towards a gigabit digital subscriber line modem that provides multi-user interference-free communication in a far-end crosstalk dominated environment by incorporating ...
  • Xia, Xiaohua; Yu, Hui (Elsevier, 2017-06)
    In this paper, the leaderless consensus problem of multi-agent systems with jointly connected topologies and nonlinear dynamics is considered, in which the nonlinear dynamics are assumed to be non-identical and unknown. ...
