    • Valuing Distributed Energy Resources 

      Negash, Ahlmahz
      Due to their small scale, it is often difficult for Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) to compete with large centralized resources when their value is based purely on the cost of energy and capacity. In order for the ...
    • Variable Step Maximum Power Point Tracking for Photovoltaic Modules with Embedded Temperature Sensing 

      Sealy, John
      The industry standard method for maximum power point tracking of photovoltaics is still one of the simplest methods, in spite of more efficient methods being available. More efficient methods are often more expensive or ...
    • Vessel recognition in color Doppler ultrasound imaging 

      Saad, Ashraf A (2008)
      Diagnostic ultrasound imaging is an important non-invasive tool for diagnosis and treatment decisions with a variety of clinical applications such as vascular disease, cardiology disease, and obstetrics. Color Doppler ...
    • Visual-Quality-Driven Video Networking over 4G Wireless Broadband 

      Wu, Po-Han
      This dissertation intends to develop an effective and complete cross-layer scheduling and resource allocation algorithm for real-time video camera networks over the OFDMA-based 4G mobile infrastructure. There are two main ...
    • VizioMetrics: Mining the Scientific Visual Literature 

      Lee, Po-shen
      Scientific results are communicated visually in the literature through diagrams, visualizations, and photographs. In this thesis, we developed a figure processing pipeline to classify more than 8 million figures from PubMed ...
    • Voltage security assessment and control in electric power systems 

      Cote, James W (1992)
      This research addresses two aspects of voltage security in electric transmission systems. First, the efficient assessment of steady state security with respect to all plausible single and double line contingencies is ...
    • Wafer-scale High-bandwidth Germanium on Silicon Photodetectors for Communications Applications 

      He, Li (2013-02-25)
      The Silicon-on-Insulator (SOI) material system has emerged as a potentially attractive platform for integrated optics, due to the intrinsic low-cost of silicon manufacturing. An especially attractive application is that ...
    • Wind Scenarios for Stochastic Energy Scheduling 

      Greenhall, Adam (2013-07-25)
      Large amounts of wind generation have been added to the power system in recent years. However, wind breaks many of the core assumptions in the process used to schedule energy and is particularly difficult to forecast ...
    • Wireless Coexistence for Spectrum Sharing 

      Safavi-Naeini, Hossein-Ali
      Much of the spectrum licensed for usage by the regulatory authorities remains idle or heavily underutilized. By allowing opportunistic access to these dormant resources, spectrum sharing promises to dramatically boost the ...
