    Abstract: The solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) is widely acknowledged for clean distributed power generation use, but critical process problems frequently occur when the stand-alone fuel cell is directly linked with the electricity grid. To guarantee the optimal operation of the SOFC in a power system, it is essential, that its generation ramp rate and load foll... Show More

    Abstract: Since 2007, Honda China Eco Mileage Challenge was held for 7 years, so far, nearly hundred teams participated in the competition. Although the national ranking of our school’s fuel econopower cars is ideal, but the competition results between our school and high level universities is remote. For raising the grade of the econopower car, this paper a... Show More

    Abstract: Due to fast industrialization the consumption as well as the cost of fossil fuels like petrol, diesel etc in the world is rising enormously leading to the generation of greenhouse gases like carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide etc besides decreasing the availability of the above fuels. The emission of these greenhouse gases rises the globe’s temperatur... Show More

    Abstract: Switched reluctance motors (SRM) have a wide range of applications in industries due to the special properties of this motor. However, because of its dynamical nonlinearities, so the problems control of SRM is complex. This paper proposed an adaptive intelligent controller for SRM with the aim to improve the ripple of torque. First, we use a fuzzy ... Show More
