This is the research report concerned with the new stability concept and designing the controller of the time periodic systems. The periodic systems which is governed by time is very common in various type of dynamic systems. For example, the satellite is the large scale and the experimental test equipment as pendulum is also time periodic systems. The motion of the systems during the time interval is running repeatedly. While this periodic systems is running, the dynamic stability is important to behave the appropriate motion of the system's function. This research propose the new stability approach based on Lyapunov theorem which is analyzing the system's stability adapting the specific energy function. And also this research introduces the developing numerical procedures to retain the stability of time periodic system. Finally, the result of this research is very useful to judge the stability and design the controller of time periodic system.
This is the research report concerned with designing and making of the flexible manufacturing system for educational training. The flexible manufacturing system is composed of several mechatronic(mechanical and electronic) subsystems which are automatically controlled by computer program. The main subsystems are materials feeder unit, automatic guided vehicle, robot for moving parts, indexing and stamping unit and computer system and more subsystems can be added for specific manufacturing processes. This dissertation includes the design and production characteristics of flexible manufacturing system for educational training. Finally, the educational training equipment is made and demonstrated in this research and is expected to use in various educational institutions, for example, technical educational and practical industrial training institutions.
The flow-surface interaction and resulting pockets is the case of a turbulence boundary layer. Conditionally sampled hot-wire measurements within the wall region show that a strong vortex forms within the pocket, bordering the upstream portion, which stay in the wall region. This vortex is the result of the rearrangement of existing sublayer vorticity and its amplification. The work in this area has been applied to the prediction and reduction of drag. The study is focused on determining change in the length scale of the pockets. An important relationship between pocket and modified wall has been found. By changing the upstream boundary condition at the wall, the length scale of pockets were decreased.
LDV(laser Doppler velocimetry) measurements were conducted at a total of four planes at 0.4 speed ratio. The speed ratio of 0.4 is 1600rpm of impeller and 633rpm of turbine speed. Even at the speed ratio 0.4, fluid flow at the gap region between the impeller and turbine and impeller exit was leaving the impeller and flowing up behind the turbine, and flows were affected by the turbine blade as it passed, negatively effecting converter efficiency. In the gap region, fluctuations make a clear sinusoidal trend unclear. The rise and fall of the flow rates in a broad sense, indicate a dependency based on the passage of the turbine blade in front of the impeller passage exit but a sinusoidal trend is not evident from this data.
This research is the second result concerned with control of driving wheelchairs and elevating seats. The standing and lifting seat elevation of wheelchairs with general wheel are controlled by motor speeds of rear wheels. The third wheelchair with mecanum wheels can make the translational motions and is controlled by different method which is designed and applied by the appropriate electrical logic circuits. Two general moving type wheelchairs and translational moving type wheelchair using mecanum wheel can drive with joy stick. All three wheelchiars' seat can be elevated by extra switches attached in chair. Finally, this research paper proposes the practical control method and electrical circuits of power wheelchairs.
Currently various kinds of wheelchair were developed and being sold in medical device market. This research is concerned with designing and making various types of moving and functional power wheelchairs. There are two kinds of general moving type wheelchairs and translational moving type wheelchair using mecanum wheel. Dynamic theory is used to check the motion analysis and safety of wheelchairs. The specific function of wheelchairs is to reach the higher position than the sitting position. And the new way of motion of wheelchair is developed by new type of wheel. This paper proposes the very economical and useful wheelchair model.
In this project, ECP(Electrical conducting polymer) gasket is used to detect the leakage of chemicals inside the reservoir. It is necessary that the electrical signal between ECP gasket and chemical leakage should be detected to protect the critical accident. This research introduce the leakage detection method to measure the electrical resistance of the cracked prototype pipe installed ECP gasket. Also the Arduino program is set to monitor the incident of chemical leakage.
