Omar Zouaid and Lazhari Nezli. Sliding Mode Control of a Five-Phase Series- Connected Two-Motor Drive
Abstract: In this work, we study vector control and sliding mode control of series-connected five-phase two asynchronous machines supplied with a three levels inverter. After presentation of multiphase machines, we worked out the mathematical model of five phase asynchronous machine supplied with voltage inverter. Application of Park transformation reduces considerably the mathematical model of machine. After, we applied vector control and sliding mode control to the five-phase induction machine. After that, we study a multi-machine system which comport five-phase two asynchronous machines supplied with a single voltage inverter.
In the last, we had the independent vector control and the sliding mode control of series-connected five-phase two asynchronous machines. We observe that an appropriate transposition of phase's order permits an independent control of two machines.
Chandrasekaran R and Nithya S. System for Diagnosis of Gastroparesis in Diabetic Patients
Abstract: Gastroparesis means "stomach paralysis". Gastroparesis is a digestive disorder in which the motility of the stomach is either abnormal or absent. In healthy people, the stomach normally contracts helps to crush ingested food and propel the pulverized food into the small intestine where further digestion and absorption of nutrients occurs. When Gastroparesis condition exists the stomach is unable to contract normally, therefore it cannot crush nor propel the food into the small intestine properly results in abnormal digestion. Diabetes is one of the most common causes for Gastroparesis. Gastroparesis can be diagnosed with tests such as x rays, manometer, and gastric emptying scans. The existing technologies include Gastric Emptying test, single or multi-channel Electrogastrography, PET and SPECT scan test for diagnosis. Thus, the existing technologies need to be improved for high resolution, low cost, more reliable & increased accuracy to provide more information for better diagnosis. In this project, we designed three different systems, acquisition of [multi-channel] Electrogastrography, analyzing the breath of the diabetic subjects and gastric emptying scan. Thus, the signal acquired from the multi channel Electrogastrography which is fed into MATLAB software for spectral analysis of the gastric signal. This Gastric signal provides useful information such as Myoelectric activity of the stomach muscle, gastric slow wave (gastric motility) in terms of Cycles per Minute (CPM). The system for Breath Analyzer is designed to analyse the amount of Acetone Gas present in one single forced breath of the subject. Gastric emptying scan done by mixing the radioactive isotope with subject's food, which the radioactive isotope starts to emit radiation from subject intestine will be measured. The system for radiation detection is designed to measure the gastric emptying rate of the subject. Based upon the digestion of food, there will be radiation emission in intestine. There will be no radiation emission, if the intake food is fully digested. The correlative results of the Gastric emptying scan, Breath Analyzer and Signal Analysis of the Multichannel Electrogastrography provides the accurate diagnosis of Gastroparesis condition and gastric emptying rate of the subject.

Kamel Ghanem Ghalem and Fatiha Hendel. How to extract the discriminant information from eyes of an individual?
Abstract: In this paper, a dual iris authentication using Dempster Shafer theory and a dual iris identification system using support vector machine are presented. The proposed method consists of three main steps: In the first one, the iris images are segmented in order to extract only half iris disc that contains relevant information and is less affected by noise. The segmented images are normalized by Daugman rubber sheet model. In the second step, the normalized images are analyzed by a bench of two 1D Log-Gabor filters to extract the texture characteristics. The encoding is realized with a phase of quantization developed by J. Daugman to generate the binary iris template. For the authentication and the similarity measurement between both binary irises templates, the hamming distances are used with a previously calculated threshold. The score fusion is applied using Dempster Shafer rule. For the identification, the support vector machine is used as a classifier. The proposed method has been tested on a subset of iris database CASIA-IrisV3-Interval. For authentication, the obtained results give a satisfactory performance with accuracy of 99.95%, FAR of 0%, FRR of 6.10%, EER of 0.92% and processing time for one iris image of 12.37 s. For identification, the experimental results show a good performance with accuracy of 100% and processing time for one iris image of 23.78 s.

Abstract: In this paper, we propose the synthesis method of different robust fractional order PID controllers, which are synthesized from solving the constrained optimization algorithm for Pneumatic Manipulator and we analyzed uncertainty problems for the system of clamping force control on the condition that its model had been established. To oppose the uncertainty problems caused by many reasons, sensitivity method is mixed based on the control theory of H? and robust controller. Fractional order PID parameters are obtained by minimization a coast function (Standard H? problem) with MIN-MAX algorithm. The performances obtained are compared with those given by a robust H? controller using in the frequency domain and in the time one. The simulation results show that the proposed synthesis method outperforms the robust H? controller in terms of performance and stability robustness. It will be able to promote the application of pneumatic manipulator in the field of ultra-precision control.

Mouloud Ayad. Fault diagnosis of rotating machines using Wavelet Packets Packets Transform
Abstract: Currently, monitoring the rotating machines is very central. The detection of defects avoids many problems. Because if the gear faults are not detected early, the health will continue to degrade, and maybe causing heavy economic loss or even human catastrophe. Many techniques are used for this purpose. Among these methods we find the vibratory analysis. The basis of the vibratory analysis is that to tray to obtain the signature of the defect in the characteristic of the vibratory signal. The complexity of the vibratory signal is his characteristic of non-linear, non stationary, and very noisily. Our objective is to propose a method to overcome these difficult. In this paper, we use the method of Wavelet Packets Transform (WPT) as a way to search for signatures of the defects to be used for overseeing the bodies of a rotating machine, such as gears.

A 20-generator electric power system case study with transmission losses and generator ramp rate limits over 10 hours of variable load was used to evaluate the (GAMS) performance.
Abdullah Al-Manfi. Implementation of Remote Self-Tuning Fuzzy PID Controller for Induction Motor Through Ethernet
Abstract: Abstract -Due to the non-linearity, complexity and time-varying dynamics of the Induction motor, therefore conventional controllers such as proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controller cannot ensure speed step response specifications in all speed range. This paper presents self tuning fuzzy PID (STFPID) controller to improve speed control of high speed three phase induction motor. the Mamdani Method fuzzy logic controller (FLC) tunes only the PID gains separately and the structure of the PID is not altered. In this paper, a two inputs and three outputs self adapting fuzzy PID controller was designed to control the speed of induction motor drive. The programmable logic controller (PLC) type Siemens Simatic S7-300 dominates the control system and the real time data communication between the PLC and personal computer (PC) using third party software like LabVIEW is realized using OLE for Process Control (OPC) server. Fuzzy logic is developed using fuzzy toolbox available in LabVIEW and OPC server fetch data from the OPC server. The proposed method can be used to realize data process and advanced control to improve the quality of the whole control system. The experimental results demonstrate that the remote STFPID controller (FLC is PC based and PID PLC based) has better performance in both transient and steady state response when compared with conventional PID controller in both PLC and PC modes.

in second scheme, we propose the use of a fuzzy logic estimator to calculate the voltage reference vector amplitude whose position is chosen with the same look-up table .Simulation results of a 1.5 kW DFIG system are presented to demonstrate the performance of the proposed control strategy under steady state and dynamic changes in torque.
Kaddour Arzag, Zin-Eddine Azzouz and Boualem Ghemri. Influence of the Ground Stratification on the Electric Fields Waveforms Calculated by the 3D-FDTD Method in the Case of Lightning Strikes to a Tower Placed on a Mountain
Abstract: This paper presents an investigation on the effect of the presence of a vertical stratified ground on the electric fields associated with lightning strikes to a tower placed on a trapezoidal mountain. Thus, the three dimensional finite difference time domain (3D-FDTD) method, based on Taflove formulation to solve Maxwell's equations, is applied for the electric fields computation. Furthermore, the lightning channel and the tall tower are represented by the transmission line model extended to include a tall strike object. Two kinds of ground are considered, the first one is a finite conductivity homogonous ground and the second one is a vertical stratified ground composed of two layers having different values of conductivity. Electric fields are calculated at different points located on the mountain and on the ground. Fields calculated at points situated on ground without change of the conductivity values are not affected by the stratification, but those obtained for the ground with change of conductivity are significantly affected by the presence of the stratified ground.

Mehenni Salim. Faster Identification for Unplanned Outages from Huge Unstructured Smart-Grid Messages taking Leveraging UIMA-AS in Spark
Abstract: As the analysis of large amounts of unstructured data is gaining a major space in enterprise computing, we are seeing the emergence of more use cases in this regard, however the underlying the success of Big Data relies on effective usage of content analytics of the underlying unstructured data. Researches confirms that two factors [1][4][5][6] have a direct impact on the difficulty of the task of a standard (Natural Language Processing) NLP tool; the most important is the domain vocabulary to be treated and secondly the wealth of explanations. Therefore, unstructured data are used increasingly in decision-making processes. But although decisions are commonly based on unstructured data, information quality assessment methods for unstructured data are lacking. In this contribution, we present a flexible approach for handling unstructured data as part of a regular (Unstructured Information Management Architecture) UIMA pipeline. The approach involves generic UIMA-AS[23] (Asynchronous Scaleout) components that can be adapted to specific NLP tool for identifying unplanned outage[28] from a rising amount of outage messages; the need for such a tool is growing fast in smart-grid domain which is considered among the leaders producing unstructured data.
Sonia Hammami. Vector norms approach and aggregation techniques to synchronize discrete-time hyperchaotic maps
Abstract: Throughout this paper, an original synchronization form is proposed for a class of discrete-time hyperchaotic systems. The new studied scheme of synchronization presents an extension of the multi-switching one to the combination synchronization, for which, the state variables of two driving systems synchronize with different state variables of the response system, simultaneously. With that in mind, at the outset, a theoretical approach for nonlinear control, using aggregation techniques associated to one specific characteristic matrix description, namely, the arrow form, is used. Then, the feasibility as well as the performance of the proposed approach of multi-switching combination synchronization is checked through numerical simulations.

Yamina Bordjiba. A genetic algorithm for characteristic points matching of two different faces
Abstract: Facial expressions transfer from a source mesh to the geometry of the target mesh requires the knowledge of a certain number of common points on each mesh, which will be the characteristic points. Each characteristic point of a mesh must have its counterpart on the other mesh. For example, the point defines on the corner of the right eye on the source mesh must have its homolog placed in the same place on the mesh target. The matching is a key step in different applications, mainly in three-dimensional reconstruction, where it consists in locating in two images the projections of the same points of the observed scene. It is also an important step in the transfer of facial animations, where it is necessary to make the correspondence between the feature points of two different faces. We are interested in the problem of locating control points on a target face by matching the feature points of an expressive face. To solve this problem, we used an evolutionary algorithm, which is the genetic algorithm.

Ali Seridi, Lynda Dib, Bourbia Riad and Yamina Bordjiba. A Web Service-Based Tutoring Tool for eLearning Platform
Abstract: In this article, we focus on the tutoring aspect of e-learning systems. The idea is to offer and make available a web service that is not an integral part of the e-learning system, but remains independent as a web service, this independence allowing it to extend any e-learning platform with the tutoring function. This service has been designed to meet SOA requirements in terms of autonomy, reuse, interoperability and remote access.
Offering the tutoring aspect as an independent service allows the different existing platforms without this functionality to benefit from it without making major changes to the code, especially since SOA standards allow easy communication between heterogeneous platforms developed in different languages and systems.
In order to validate our approach, we developed and tested the tutoring web service. It is a tool that allows the tutor to closely monitor the progress of each learner in his studies, in his collaboration and in his different interactions with other learners and with the tutor. Many other statistics through this web service, which allows the tutor to have an idea about the seriousness of the learner and to predict the risk of dropping out of courses.

Mohamed Ali Zdiri, Badii Bouzidi and Hsan Hadj Abdallah. Open-circuit fault diagnosis in four-switch three-phase inverter fed induction motor drive
Abstract: In recent years, four-switch three-phase inverter (FSTPI) are currently utilized in an enormous industrial applications such as renewable energy conversion systems and speed electric motor drives. However, the reduced structure FSTPI is sensitive to several kinds of faults. Accordingly, this paper presents a simple diagnostic method of IGBT's (insulated gate bipolar transistors) open-circuit faults in FSTPI fed IM (induction motor) drives. The proposed diagnostic method is simple and just requires the motor phase currents avoiding the use of another additional sensors and hardware. This means that the system complexity and costs decrease and the integration into the control system is easy. To achieve better dynamic performance, the direct RFOC (rotor flux oriented control) strategy is applied to the four-switch three-phase inverter to control the IM mechanical speed. Furthermore, the simulation results shows the diagnostic method performance and robustness under distinct operating conditions.

Boudjella Houari, Ayad Ahmed Nour El Islam and Laouer Mohamed. Improved Dynamic Harmony Search optimization for Economic Dispatch problems with Cubic Cost Function
Abstract: The economic load dispatch problem aims to schedule power outputs of the generating units to meet the system load demand at minimum cost while satisfying the equality and inequality constraints. In this paper, we applied a novel variant of harmony search algorithm (HSA) based on parameter setting, named improved dynamic harmony search algorithm (IDHSA) to obtain accurate optimal dispatch results using cubic cost function. In IDHS algorithm, the key difference from the conventional HAS is that bandwidth (BW) operator change dynamically at every iteration. The IDHS algorithm is tested with two different cases of power systems without and with transmission losses. The simulation results prove that the IDHS algorithm is more operative in determining the optimal solution compared than others optimization methods reported previously in the literature.

Kamel Jemaï, Amna Elghoul and Lassaad Sbita. Fuzzy Control of a Power System Under Random Disturbances
Abstract: Nowadays, power systems are increasingly becoming extremely complex topology making the task of electric power operators rather delicate. Indeed, guaranteeing the stability of these systems, based on converters and different types of electrical machines, on the one hand, and the response to the growing needs of energy by consumers on the other, point to serious difficulties which faces the operators of these systems, precisely the large electrical networks. These difficulties are accentuated considerably during the phases where these power systems are impacted by perturbations with random characters which systematically require an instantaneous identification of their components on the one hand and their ranges of variation on the other hand. In other words, the major problem is the approach taken to identify the main components of this type of disturbance. A better approximation of the margins of variation of the dynamic components of these disturbances which are likely to affect the power systems leads to the guarantee of a relative stability of these systems. To this end, we have focused mainly on the identification and evaluation of the dynamic components of these perturbations.

Abstract: This article investigates the effect of new introduced Advanced STATCOM device on critical power quality issue namely voltage swells over large-scale transmission networks from the mitigation effect point of view. The main idea of new Advanced FACTS devices is that, constant values of inductance, capacitance, and PI controller gains in conventional FACTS were replaced by variable values to mitigate different magnitudes of voltage swells.

Zaaraoui Lassaad and Mansouri Ali. Design improvement of an in-Wheel machine for electric vehicle based on multiobjective algorithms
Abstract: In the present paper, we have discussed the improvement design of the geometric dimensions of a synchronous permanent magnets machine with an exterior rotor and concentrated windings dedicated to an in-wheel electric vehicle motor. This optimization has been done according to three objective functions which are: the efficiency maximization, the mass minimization and the torque ripple minimization, and also according to certain imposed constraints. For that, we used five multiobjective algorithms belonging to evolutionary algorithms and particle swarm optimization. The optimization results of these algorithms are presented and compared according to several criteria, namely: the capacity of resolution, the preservation of diversity, the Pareto dominance of solutions and the execution time.

Abstract: This paper presents the use of direct space vector modulation based on the fuzzy logic controller to achieve desired output performances of matrix converter. The space vector modulation algorithm using a space vector representation of the currents and the voltages is proposed. This algorithm improves the waveform of the output voltage and current. The voltage transfer ratio is controlled by the fuzzy logic algorithm with change of different steps. In this case the output current is improved the output current. The performance analyses of the induction motor drive are discussed and tested with different torque levels. We can see that the use of the fuzzy logic controller in the closed loop reduces the overshoot at the starting regime and maintains the reference speed when running with load torque.

Abstract: The analysis and the proposition of a new and practical method for enhancement of unbalanced standalone Doubly Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) based Wind Energy Conversion System (WECS) is detailed in this paper. To maintain the Voltage Unbalance Factor VUF on the stator side to reasonable values of the order of 1-2 %, an auxiliary three-phase voltage system is injected on the rotor side of the DFIG which RMS value and phase are adjusted to compensate unbalance of the stator voltage. The three-phase model of the DFIG inducing by six first-order differential equations model is adopted in this paper. Simulation results prove that the proposed strategy can maintain VUF under 0.02 for strict limits of unbalance.

Bourouba Hocine, Doghmane Hakim, Messaoudi Kamel and Bourennane El-Bay. Ear recognition using textural structure descriptor representation
Abstract: This paper presents a novel representation for ear recognition that introduces a new features based on textural structure of human ears. Extracting effective features is a fundamental issue in ear representation and recognition. The proposed representation method is called Discriminant Local Dual Cross Pattern (D-LDCP). The recognition accuracy can be enhanced by the following steps. Firstly, the local dual cross patter is used to capture the textural structure information in ear image. Secondly, the spatial pyramid histogram of horizontal decomposition is applied to obtain local ear feature descriptors. Next, the histograms obtained are normalized. Then, the global representation of the ear image is obtained by concatenating all histograms calculated at each level. After that, the discriminant representation of ear image is constructed, using whitened linear discriminant analysis. Finally, the k-nearest neighbor is used for ear identification. Moreover, experiments are conducted on two ear databases: IIT Delhi-1 and IIT Delhi-2. Results show that, the proposed approach provides a significant performance improvement compared to the recent approaches in terms of accuracy.

Abstract: This paper proposes an enhanced face identification system under varying conditions. This is achieved through following steps. First, the WF method is applied to reduces, as possible, the effect of the illumination from the input face image. Second, the resulting image is divided into non-overlapping region. Thirdly, the local texture descriptor, which is the Local Phase Quantization (LPQ) is separately applied at each region. This descriptor is chosen due to his discriminative power as well as its robustness against local facial changes. The proposed system is applied on both public databases: Extended Yale B and the AR databases where its recognition accuracy is compared by those of the recent existing methods. The obtained results confirm the superiority of the proposed method than the existing methods.
Mohamed Benhaddad, Fouad Kerrour, Ounessa Benabbes and Abdeali Saouli. Analysis of Effective Mode Area and Nonlinear Characteristics of a Photonic Crystal Fiber with Finite Element Method.
Abstract: In this paper, confinement loss in hexagonal lattice Photonic Crystal Fiber (PCF) has been investigated, using COMSOL Multiphysics based on Finite Element Method (FEM). The proposed structure consist of four circular air holes rings, where three circular air holes near the core are replaced by elliptical air holes, which have a major and minor diameter. The Confinement loss was studied in term of minor diameter and wavelength in the range of about 1200-1800 [nm]. We realized that the rise of minor diameter lead to decreases of imaginary part of effective index and therefore the confinement loss reduces. Furthermore the variations of various fiber parameters like effective refractive index, non linear coefficient and effective area with respect to wavelength are also investigated.

Abstract: The economic-emission load dispatch (EELD) of thermal units by means of particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm is proposed. The EELD is formulated as a bi-objective problem including the fuel cost and polluting emission of generating units. The bi-objective optimization problem is converted into a single objective function incorporating a price penalty factor. A simultaneous research of minimum total generation fuel cost and the toxic gases emission when satisfying the load demand and some constraints is carried out. The proposed PSO algorithm has been implemented on Algerian network. Two case studies are evaluated. The first one consists of 59 bus and 10 generators. The second one consists of 114 bus and 15 generators. A comparison with other algorithms reported in the literature shows the effectiveness of the proposed EELD to evaluate polluting effects and to motivate promoting clean energy as well.

The control of this system required a cascade control such control needs two loops; the inside loop to control the inductive current and the outside one for continuous voltage bus. The theoretical study of this command has been validated using PSIM software.

Abstract: This paper deals with the efficiency optimization for
a stand-alone PV system. An ideal model of a PV solar cell is used
in which the research of its unknown internal parameters is made.
For obtaining high voltage transfer gain at the output of the PV
chain, a step-up DC/DC converter is required. Three topologies
are discussed in this papers which are the Boost structure, the
two stage of Positive Output Cascade Boost (POCB) converter
and the Super Lift Boost (SLB) structure. The design, modeling
and sizing of passive components of each structure is presented.
A comparative study of the three studied converters is made

behavior. A great necessity of optimizing the efficiency appears
as a result of the nonlinearity of the PV generator operations. To
achieve the maximum power point (MPP) delivered from the PV
panel a sliding mode control approach (SMC) is presented and
discussed in this works. Simulation results verified the validity

Hamed Belloumi, Aymen Ammouri and Ferid Kourda. Optimizing Design and Simulation of Planar Transformers Based on Litz Wire Structure
Abstract: A new trend in power converters is to design planar transformer that aim for low profile. However, at high frequency, the planar transformer ac losses become significant due to the proximity and skin effects. In this paper, the design and implementation of a novel planar litz conductor is presented in order to equalize the flux linkage and improving the current distribution. The developed PCB litz wire structure minimizes the losses in a similar way to the conventional multi stranded litz wires. In order to further illustrate the eddy current effect in different arrangements, a finite-element analysis (FEA) tool is used to analyze current distribution inside the conductors. Finally, the proposed planar transformer has been integrated in an electronic stage to test at high signal levels
Soraya Gouder, Ramdane Mahamdi, Luc Favre, Antoine Ronda and Isabelle Berbezier. Vibrational properties and luminescence of Ge layers grown on porous silicon
Abstract: Using Fourier transformed infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and photoluminescence (PL), vibrational properties and luminescence of different samples of Ge layers deposited on Porous silicon (Psi) are investigated and interpreted. FTIR spectra of the Si1-xGex layers depend strongly on the Ge content and indicated a partial replacement of, the Si-O-Si asymmetric stretching modes by Ge-O-Ge stretching modes and the Si-Hx by Ge-Hx modes.
The peaks of PL are situated between 600 and 750 nm, which correspond to a red emission. However, the PL signal increased in intensity with the growth of Ge on PSi. This behaviour is due to the quantum confinement of Si nanocrystals on PSi and the presence of the Ge layer.
FTIR measurement confirmed the observed PL from PSi, which is due to the presence of surface confined molecular emitters (siloxene). This structure could be used as relaxed pseudo-substrate in nanotechnology.
