Forward Problem Solution for Contactless Electrical Conductivity Imaging with Realistic Head Model

Zengin, Reyhan
Gençer, Nevzat Güneri
In this study, forward problem of contactless electrical conductivity imaging is solved by using realistic-head model. Realistic-head model is modelled by a single volume with the ANSYS software and divided into hexahedral elements. Conductivity information for each element is obtained from MR gray-scale images obtained as a result of segmentation. For realistic-head model, a coil of radius I cm, I cm above the scalp and carrying a sinusoidal (50 kHz) current of I A is used as a source. Realistic-head modelis composed of the scalp, skull, brain fluid and brain (gray matter and while matter) tissues. For each tissue magnenetic flux densities and current densities have been obtained.

Equivalent Circuit Models for Split-ring Resonator Arrays
Yasar-Orten, P.; Ekmekci, E.; Sayan, Gönül (2010-07-08)
In this study, a square-shaped single-ring SRR unit cell is modeled by using a suitable two-port resonant circuit representation that accounts for the conductor loss and dielectric loss effects as well. Capacitive and inductive coupling effects between adjacent SRR unit cells are also described by the two-port equivalent circuit approach. Finally, the resonance frequency of an infinitely long SRR array is estimated using its equivalent circuit model and compared to the value of the resonance frequency obtai...
Resistance non-uniformity correction method using bias heating for resistance type uncooled microbolometer FPAs
Tepegoz, Murat; Akın, Tayfun (2007-04-13)
This paper proposes a new resistance non-uniformity correction method for microbolometer-type uncooled thermal detector focal plane arrays (FPAs) that suffer from pixel-to-pixel resistance variation, which is conventionally corrected by applying a specific bias voltage to each detector by the use on-chip DACs. The proposed method uses the heating of the detector with electrical bias, where the detector is heated-up for a pre-determined period of time before the read-out phase. The proposed method uses only ...
2D simulations based on the general time dependent reciprocal relation and initial experiments for LFEIT /
Karadaş, Mürsel; Gençer, Nevzat Güneri; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
In this study, the new imaging modality Lorentz Field Electrical Impedance Tomography (LFEIT) is investigated. In LFEIT, the main aim is finding the conductivity distribution of different tissues. This method is based on the development of the current density distribution in the conductive medium. To develop the current density, the object is located in a static magnetic field and pressure wave due to an ultrasonic transducer develops particle movements inside the body. As a result, a velocity current distr...
Experimental evaluation of cable drum systems as linear motion sensors
KILIÇ, ERGİN; Dölen, Melik; Koku, Ahmet Buğra (2011-04-15)
This study evaluates cable-drum mechanisms as linear motion sensors for certain CNC applications. In this work, the dynamical attributes of a generic device are studied experimentally. The conducted research indicates that despite the significant traction force induced between the cable and its drum, small fluctuations in mechanism's speed yields a considerable (micro) slip at the interface.
Performance Analysis of Reduced Common-Mode Voltage PWM Methods and Comparison With Standard PWM Methods for Three-Phase Voltage-Source Inverters
Hava, Ahmet Masum (2009-01-01)
This paper surveys the reduced common-mode voltage pulsewidth modulation (RCMV-PWM) methods for three-phase voltage-source inverters, investigates their performance characteristics, and provides a comparison with the standard PWM methods. PWM methods are reviewed, and their pulse patterns and common-mode voltage (CMV) patterns are illustrated. The inverter input and output current ripple characteristics and output voltage linearity characteristics of each PWM method are thoroughly investigated by analytical...
