    A Compact UHF Antenna Based on Hilbert Fractal Elements and a Serpentine Arrangement for Detecting Partial Discharge

    Xiang Lin1,*, Jian Fang1, Ming Zhang1, Kuang Yin1, Yan Tian1, Yingfei Guo2, Qianggang Wang2

    Energy Engineering, Vol.121, No.5, pp. 1127-1141, 2024, DOI:10.32604/ee.2024.046861

    Abstract Efforts to protect electric power systems from faults have commonly relied on the use of ultra-high frequency (UHF) antennas for detecting partial discharge (PD) as a common precursor to faults. However, the effectiveness of existing UHF antennas suffers from a number of challenges such as limited bandwidth, relatively large physical size, and low detection sensitivity. The present study addresses these issues by proposing a compact microstrip patch antenna with fixed dimensions of 100 mm × 100 mm × 1.6 mm. The results of computations yield an optimized antenna design consisting of 2nd-order Hilbert fractal units More > Graphic Abstract

    Deep Neural Network Architecture Search via Decomposition-Based Multi-Objective Stochastic Fractal Search

    Hongshang Xu1, Bei Dong1,2,*, Xiaochang Liu1, Xiaojun Wu1,2

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.38, No.2, pp. 185-202, 2023, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2023.041177

    Abstract Deep neural networks often outperform classical machine learning algorithms in solving real-world problems. However, designing better networks usually requires domain expertise and consumes significant time and computing resources. Moreover, when the task changes, the original network architecture becomes outdated and requires redesigning. Thus, Neural Architecture Search (NAS) has gained attention as an effective approach to automatically generate optimal network architectures. Most NAS methods mainly focus on achieving high performance while ignoring architectural complexity. A myriad of research has revealed that network performance and structural complexity are often positively correlated. Nevertheless, complex network structures will bring… More >

    Study on the Fractal Characteristics of Cavitation Shedding over a Twisted Hydrofoil

    Zilong Hu1, Weilong Guang1, Ran Tao1,2,*, Ruofu Xiao1,2, Di Zhu3

    Frontiers in Heat and Mass Transfer, Vol.21, pp. 161-178, 2023, DOI:10.32604/fhmt.2023.041402

    Abstract Cavitation and cavitation erosion often occur and seriously threaten the safe and stable operation of hydraulic machinery. However, during the operation of hydraulic machinery, the cavitation flow field is often difficult to contact and measure, and the shedding and development characteristics of cavitation flow are unknown. This paper uses the Detached Eddy Simulation (DES) turbulence model and Zwart-Gerber-Belamri (ZGB) cavitation model to conduct numerical research on the cavitation flow of a twisted hydrofoil and verifies the effectiveness of numerical simulation by comparing it with experimental results. Then, based on the fractal dimension method, the number… More >

    Abstract In today’s world, smart electric vehicles are deeply integrated with smart energy, smart transportation and smart cities. In electric vehicles (EVs), owing to the harsh working conditions, mechanical parts are prone to fatigue damages, which endanger the driving safety of EVs. The practice has proved that the identification of periodic impact characteristics (PICs) can effectively indicate mechanical faults.

    S. Priya1, R. S. Ponmagal2,*

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.37, No.2, pp. 1895-1907, 2023, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2023.039814

    Abstract Handling service access in a cloud environment has been identified as a critical challenge in the modern internet world due to the increased rate of intrusion attacks. To address such threats towards cloud services, numerous techniques exist that mitigate the service threats according to different metrics. The rule-based approaches are unsuitable for new threats, whereas trust-based systems estimate trust value based on behavior, flow, and other features. However, the methods suffer from mitigating intrusion attacks at a higher rate. This article presents a novel Multi Fractal Trust Evaluation Model (MFTEM) to overcome these deficiencies. The… More >

    Journal of Renewable Materials, Vol.11, No.5, pp. 2265-2278, 2023, DOI:10.32604/jrm.2023.025483

    Abstract Poplar wood, which was used as the absorption material for the solar-driven interfacial evaporation, was treated for 3 days, 6 days and 9 days with the pectinase, and then was simulated for photothermal evaporation test at one standard solar radiation intensity (1 kW⋅m−2). The effects of pectinase treatment on cell passage and water migration capacity of poplars were analyzed by the mercury intrusion porosimetry, the scanning electron microscope and fractal theory. It was found that the pit membrane and the ray parenchyma cells of poplar wood were degraded and destroyed after pectinase treatment. Compared with the untreated More >
