In this paper, a new behavioural mixer model is introduced. In addition to amplitude nonlinearity; phase nonlinearity and memory effect of the mixer are modelled in a multi-box structure. Each nonlinearity source is modelled in distinct blocks of which cascade connections compose the behavioural mixer model. A test-bed has been constructed including a reference mixer and through measurements, amplitude and phase characteristics of the main tones and IMD products are modelled. The proposed behavioural model delivers a good match between measured and simulation results. The mixer model may be curve fitted to the characteristics of any mixer by optimizing its variable parameters and thus can be used in modelling different types of mixers. Thus, the proposed mixer model may be used in computer simulation tools and in linearization applications.


An additive cost approach to optimal Temporal Logic control
Aydın Göl, Ebru (2014-07-21)
This paper presents a provably-correct Model Predictive Control (MPC) scheme for a discrete-time linear system. The cost is a quadratic that penalizes the distance from desired state and control trajectories, which are only available over a finite horizon. Correctness is specified as a syntactically co-safe Linear Temporal Logic (scLTL) formula over a set of linear predicates in the states of the system. The proposed MPC controller solves a set of convex optimization problems guided by the specification. Th...
A constitutive model for finite deformation of amorphous polymers
FLEISCHHAUER, R.; Dal, Hüsnü; KALISKE, M.; SCHNEIDER, K. (2012-12-01)
The paper introduces a three-dimensional constitutive model for the mechanical behavior of amorphous polymers, thermosets and thermoplastics. The approach is formulated in terms of finite deformations, appropriate for glassy polymers. The rheology of the model consists of a Langevin-type free energy function for the energy storage due to molecular alignment connected in parallel to a Maxwell element with a viscoplastic dashpot. The model proves successful for the constitutive description of glassy polymers ...
A computational model for reinforced concrete members confined with fiber reinforced polymer lamina: Implementation and experimental validation
Mosalam, Khalid M.; Talaat, Mohamed; Binici, Barış (Elsevier BV, 2007-7)
This study presents a computational model to simulate the behavior of confined concrete in column plastic hinge zones. The model describes the distribution of confining stresses within a circular column cross-section and the hysteretic behavior of concrete under passive confinement. Of particular interest is the ability of the model to predict the maximum circumferential strains and thus estimate the limit state of the confining medium rather than relying on empirical limits such as concrete compressive str...

In this paper, a new model to parallelize the backward-chaining inference technique in production systems called ParBack is presented. In this model, the data dependencies between rules are analyzed and then converted to special notations that constitute the search space. Parallelism is exploited in three directions: some processors are dedicated to perform the inference process; other processors perform processes that guide the inference process to the useful paths in the search space; and a third group of...
An artificial neural network estimator design for the inferential model predictive control of an industrial multi-component distillation column
Bahar, Almila; Özgen, Canan; Department of Chemical Engineering (2003)
An inferential control methodology, that utilizes an artificial neural network (ANN) estimator for a model predictive controller, is developed for an industrial multi-component distillation column. In the column, propane and butane is separated from a mixture of propane, n-butane, i-butane, and i-pentane with a top product purity of 96% propane and a bottom product purity of 63% n- butane. Dual composition control of the column must be used in a multivariable model predictive controller for an efficient ope...
