Design and implementation of a parallel computing system using MIL-STD-1553

Codur, Kemal Burak
In this thesis a parallel computing system using MIL-STD-1553 data bus interconnection network which is a military standard developed for aircraft applications and has some unique features that differs from commercial network standards is designed and implemented. The system is developed to satisfy the properties of the network and proposes a framework for design, coding and execution of parallel programs. Moreover it provides a user interface that issimilar to the interfaces of popular Message Passing Systems so that it can be easily used by parallel application programmers. The parallel computing system has been tested with a cryptography application which is data intensive and numerical integration applications which need small amount of data transfers. The results showed that the system performance is poor for data intensive applications while there is a significant speed up in numerical integration applications.

As communication systems evolve to better cater to the needs of machine-type applications such as remote monitoring and networked control, advanced perspectives are required for the design of link layer protocols. The age of information (AoI) metric has firmly taken its place in the literature as a metric and tool to measure and control the data freshness demands of various applications. AoI measures the timeliness of transferred information from the point of view of the destination. In this study, we exper...
HyFI: Hybrid Flow Initiation in Software Defined Networks
Soltani, Ahmad; Bazlamaçcı, Cüneyt Fehmi (2014-04-03)
Software defined networking (SDN) provides techniques to facilitate the management of computer networks in a centralized and integrated architecture by separating the control plane from the data plane in packet forwarding devices and middleboxes. By creating this abstraction layer, SDN allows control of network middleboxes remotely from a controller point, which is either connected directly (out-of-band control using dedicated links) or indirectly (in-band control using the available data network links) to ...
Poster Abstract: iSDR: SDR-in-the-loop Simulation
Ergenc, Doganalp; Onur, Ertan (2019-01-01)
Discrete event network simulators are used to evaluate the performance of a variety of designs in the wireless communication field. They enable researchers to build new network protocols and architectures in a simplified and organized development environment with adherence to the fundamental software engineering principles. However, even though they embody different mathematical models to simulate wireless medium, it is still far from taking an excessive number of channel conditions that directly affect wir...

In this research work, the design and implementation of a 154-kV +/- 50-Mvar transmission static synchronous compensator (T-STATCOM) have been carried out primarily for the purposes of reactive power compensation and terminal voltage regulation and secondarily for power system stability. The implemented T-STATCOM consists of five 10.5-kV +/- 12-Mvar cascaded multilevel converter (CMC) modules operating in parallel. The power stage of each CMC is composed of five series-connected H-bridges (HBs) in each phas...
Implementation of an Enhanced Target Localization and Identification Algorithm on a Magnetic WSN
Baghaee, Sajjad; GÜRBÜZ, SEVGİ ZÜBEYDE; Uysal, Elif (2015-10-01)
Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are ubiquitous in a wide range of applications requiring the monitoring of physical and environmental variables, such as target localization and identification. One of these applications is the sensing of ferromagnetic objects. In typical applications, the area to be monitored is typically large compared to the sensing radius of each magnetic sensor. On the other hand, the RF communication radii of WSN nodes are invariably larger than the sensing radii. This makes it economic...
