A Novel Mobility-Based Routing Protocol For Semi-Predictable Disruption Tolerant Networks, Saeid Iranmanesh, Kwan-Wu Chin Jan 2015

A Novel Mobility-Based Routing Protocol For Semi-Predictable Disruption Tolerant Networks, Saeid Iranmanesh, Kwan-Wu Chin

Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences - Papers: Part A

This letter considers routing in delay tolerant networks whereby nodes have semi-predictable mobility patterns within a time period. We propose a mobility-based routing protocol (MBRP) where nodes construct a space-time graph dynamically. As the space-time graph may be incomplete, MBRP presents a heuristic that evaluates encountered nodes based on their recorded mobility patterns in order to disseminate a finite number of bundle replicas. Simulation results, over a service quality metric comprising of delivery, delay and overhead, show that MBRP achieves up to 105 % improvement as compared to four well-known routing protocols. Finally, MBRP is capable of achieving 50 % of the ...

On Using Wireless Power Transfer To Increase The Max Flow Of Rechargeable Wireless Sensor Networks, Tengjiao He, Kwan-Wu Chin, Sieteng Soh

A key problem in Rechargeable Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) is determining the maximum amount of data that can be collected by a sink over a given time period. This maximum is constrained by link capacity and critically, by the available energy at each node. In this paper, we consider a novel approach to increase the maximum flow rate by exploiting recent advances in Wireless Power Transfer (WPT). Specifically, we deploy a finite number of WPT capable rovers next to bottleneck sensor nodes with the aim to increase the max flow rate of a WSN. We formulate a Mixed Integer Linear ...

Application Of Saturated Core Fault Current Limiters To Interconnected Distribution Networks, Sasareka Gunawardana Mudalige, Sarath Perera, Jeffrey W. Moscrop

There is an increasing need for electricity utilities to limit fault levels in critical locations in power systems so that existing switchgear can continue to function as expected. This is particularly true in electrical distribution systems, where the increased penetration of renewable and decentralised generation is forcing the network to be highly interconnected in order to allow for higher integration capacity and reliable operation. Consequently, the short-circuit currents in distribution systems have increased significantly. In this background, application of fault current limiting devices is one of the solutions that is being considered by the Distribution Network Service Providers (DNSPs). A ...

Recently published International Electrotechnical Committee (IEC) technical reports IEC 61000-3-13 provides detailed methodologies for managing voltage unbalance (VU) in electric power systems. A key aspect in the VU emission allocation process is the estimation of VU propagation in different parts of the network. Although the VU propagation from upstream networks to downstream networks is adequately addressed, the attenuation of VU when propagating from downstream to upstream networks at the same voltage level has not been properly taken into account in the aforementioned methodologies. Furthermore, mains connected three-phase induction motors are known to attenuate VU, and there is no methodology currently ...


A Distributed Broadcast Algorithm For Duty-Cycled Networks With Physical Interference Model, Dianbo Zhao, Kwan-Wu Chin Jan 2015

A Distributed Broadcast Algorithm For Duty-Cycled Networks With Physical Interference Model, Dianbo Zhao, Kwan-Wu Chin

Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences - Papers: Part A

Broadcast is a fundamental operation in multi-hop wireless networks. Given a source node with a message to broadcast, the objective is to propagate the message to all nodes in an interferencefree manner while incurring minimum latency. This problem, called Minimum-Latency Broadcast Scheduling (MLBS), has been studied extensively in wireless networks whereby nodes remain on all times and has been shown to be NP-hard. However, only a few studies have addressed this problem in the context of duty-cycled wireless networks, which unfortunately, remains NP-hard. In these networks, nodes do not wake up simultaneously, and hence, not all neighbors of a transmitting ...


A Refined General Summation Law For Vu Emission Assessment In Radial Networks, Jayatunga Vitharanage Upuli Priyadarshani Jayatunga, Sarath Perera, Philip Ciufo, Ashish P. Agalgaonkar Jan 2015

A Refined General Summation Law For Vu Emission Assessment In Radial Networks, Jayatunga Vitharanage Upuli Priyadarshani Jayatunga, Sarath Perera, Philip Ciufo, Ashish P. Agalgaonkar

Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences - Papers: Part A

Voltage unbalance (VU) management of power systems requires the development of well researched engineering practices to maintain acceptable VU levels while utilising the total VU absorption capacity of the power system. In this regard, IEC/TR 61000-3-13:2008 prescribes a VU emission allocation methodology based on a stochastic approach which uses a general summation law in order to aggregate numerous sources of unbalance to take into account their random variations. On the other hand, recent deterministic studies on VU emission assessment at the post-connection stage of unbalanced installations present a complex VU factor based approach to determine constituent components of ...
