Yamanokuchi, Koki, Watanabe, Hiroki, Itoh, Jun-Ichi.  2021.  Universal Smart Power Module Concept with High-speed Controller for Simplification of Power Conversion System Design. 2021 IEEE 12th Energy Conversion Congress Exposition - Asia (ECCE-Asia). :2484–2489.
This paper proposes the modular power conversion systems based on an Universal Smart Power Module (USPM). In this concept, the Power Electronics Building Block (PEBB) is improved the flexibility and the expandability by integrating a high-speed power electronics controller, input/output filters among each USPM to realize the simplification of the power electronics design. The original point of USPM is that each power module operates independently because a high-speed power electronics controller is implemented on each power module. The power modules of PEBB are typically configured by the main power circuits and the gate driver. Therefore, the controller has to be designed specifically according to various applications although the advantages of PEBB are high flexibility and user-friendly. The contribution of USPM is the simplification of the system design including power electronics controller. On the other hand, autonomous distributed systems require the control method to suppress the interference in each module. In this paper, the configuration of USPM, example of the USPM system, and detail of the control method are introduced.

An open source software package for performing dynamic RMS simulation of small to medium-sized power systems is presented, written entirely in the Python programming language. The main objective is to facilitate fast prototyping of new wide area monitoring, control and protection applications for the future power system by enabling seamless integration with other tools available for Python in the open source community, e.g. for signal processing, artificial intelligence, communication protocols etc. The focus is thus transparency and expandability rather than computational efficiency and performance.The main purpose of this paper, besides presenting the code and some results, is to share interesting experiences with the power system community, and thus stimulate wider use and further development. Two interesting conclusions at the current stage of development are as follows:First, the simulation code is fast enough to emulate real-time simulation for small and medium-size grids with a time step of 5 ms, and allows for interactive feedback from the user during the simulation. Second, the simulation code can be uploaded to an online Python interpreter, edited, run and shared with anyone with a compatible internet browser. Based on this, we believe that the presented simulation code could be a valuable tool, both for researchers in early stages of prototyping real-time applications, and in the educational setting, for students developing intuition for concepts and phenomena through real-time interaction with a running power system model.
Wang, Yahui, Cui, Qiushi, Tang, Xinlu, Li, Dongdong, Chen, Tao.  2021.  Waveform Vector Embedding for Incipient Fault Detection in Distribution Systems. 2021 IEEE Sustainable Power and Energy Conference (iSPEC). :3873–3879.
Incipient faults are faults at their initial stages and occur before permanent faults occur. It is very important to detect incipient faults timely and accurately for the safe and stable operation of the power system. At present, most of the detection methods for incipient faults are designed for the detection of a single device’s incipient fault, but a unified detection for multiple devices cannot be achieved. In order to increase the fault detection capability and enable detection expandability, this paper proposes a waveform vector embedding (WVE) method to embed incipient fault waveforms of different devices into waveform vectors. Then, we utilize the waveform vectors and formulate them into a waveform dictionary. To improve the efficiency of embedding the waveform signature into the learning process, we build a loss function that prevents overflow and overfitting of softmax function during when learning power system waveforms. We use the real data collected from an IEEE Power & Energy Society technical report to verify the feasibility of this method. For the result verification, we compare the superiority of this method with Logistic Regression and Support Vector Machine in different scenarios.
Bai, Zilong, Hu, Beibei.  2021.  A Universal Bert-Based Front-End Model for Mandarin Text-To-Speech Synthesis. ICASSP 2021 - 2021 IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech and Signal Processing (ICASSP). :6074–6078.
The front-end text processing module is considered as an essential part that influences the intelligibility and naturalness of a Mandarin text-to-speech system significantly. For commercial text-to-speech systems, the Mandarin front-end should meet the requirements of high accuracy and low time latency while also ensuring maintainability. In this paper, we propose a universal BERT-based model that can be used for various tasks in the Mandarin front-end without changing its architecture. The feature extractor and classifiers in the model are shared for several sub-tasks, which improves the expandability and maintainability. We trained and evaluated the model with polyphone disambiguation, text normalization, and prosodic boundary prediction for single task modules and multi-task learning. Results show that, the model maintains high performance for single task modules and shows higher accuracy and lower time latency for multi-task modules, indicating that the proposed universal front-end model is promising as a maintainable Mandarin front-end for commercial applications.
Fu, Shijian, Tong, Ling, Gong, Xun, Gao, Xinyi, Wang, Peicheng, Gao, Bo, Liu, Yukai, Zhang, Kun, Li, Hao, Zhou, Weilai et al..  2021.  Design of Intermediate Frequency Module of Microwave Radiometer Based on Polyphase Filter Bank. 2021 IEEE International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium IGARSS. :7984–7987.
In this work, an IF(intermediate frequency) module of a hyperspectral microwave radiometer based on a polyphase filter bank (PFB) and Discrete Fourier Transformation (DFT)is introduced. The IF module is designed with an 800MSPS sampling-rate ADC and a Xilinx Virtex-7 FPGA. The module can achieve 512 channels and a bandwidth of 400M and process all the sampled data in real-time. The test results of this module are given and analyzed, such as linearity, accuracy, etc. It can be used in various applications of microwave remote sensing. The system has strong expandability.

Accidents in Nuclear Power Plants (NPPs) can occur for a variety of causes. However, among these, the scale of accidents due to human error can be greater than expected. Accordingly, researches are being actively conducted using artificial intelligence to reduce human error. Most of the research shows high performance based on the numerical data on NPPs, but the expandability of researches using only numerical data is limited. Therefore, in this study, abnormal diagnosis was performed using artificial intelligence based on image data. The methods applied to abnormal diagnosis are the deep neural network, convolution neural network, and convolution recurrent neural network. Consequently, in nuclear power plants, it is expected that the application of more methodologies can be expanded not only in numerical data but also in image-based data.

With the rapid development of e-commerce and the increasing popularity of credit cards, online transactions have become increasingly smooth and convenient. However, many online transactions suffer from credit card fraud, resulting in huge losses every year. Many financial organizations and e-commerce companies are devoted to developing advanced fraud detection algorithms. This paper presents an approach to detect fraud transactions using the IEEE-CIS Fraud Detection dataset provided by Kaggle. Our stacked model is based on Gradient Boosting, LightGBM, CatBoost, and Random Forest. Besides, implementing StackNet improves the classification accuracy significantly and provides expandability to the network architecture. Our final model achieved an AUC of 0.9578 for the training set and 0.9325 for the validation set, demonstrating excellent performance in classifying different transaction types.
Wotawa, Franz, Klampfl, Lorenz, Jahaj, Ledio.  2021.  A framework for the automation of testing computer vision systems. 2021 IEEE/ACM International Conference on Automation of Software Test (AST). :121–124.
Vision systems, i.e., systems that enable the detection and tracking of objects in images, have gained substantial importance over the past decades. They are used in quality assurance applications, e.g., for finding surface defects in products during manufacturing, surveillance, but also automated driving, requiring reliable behavior. Interestingly, there is only little work on quality assurance and especially testing of vision systems in general. In this paper, we contribute to the area of testing vision software, and present a framework for the automated generation of tests for systems based on vision and image recognition with the focus on easy usage, uniform usability and expandability. The framework makes use of existing libraries for modifying the original images and to obtain similarities between the original and modified images. We show how such a framework can be used for testing a particular industrial application on identifying defects on riblet surfaces and present preliminary results from the image classification domain.

Wireless embedded devices are key elements of Internet-of-Things (IoT) and industrial IoT (IIoT) applications. The complexity of these devices as well as the number of connected devices to networks increase steadily. The high intricacy of the overall system makes it error-prone and vulnerable to attacks and leads to the need to test individual parts or even the whole system. Therefore, this paper presents the concept of a flexible and distributed testbed to evaluate correct behavior in various operation or attack scenarios. It is based on the Robot Operating System (ROS) as communication framework to ensure modularity and expandability. The testbed integrates RF-jamming and measurement devices to evaluate remote attack scenarios and interference issues. An energy harvesting emulation cell is used to evaluate different real-world energy harvesting scenarios. A climatic test chamber allows to investigate the influence of temperature and humidity conditions on the system-under-test. As a testbed application scenario, the automated evaluation of an energy harvesting wireless sensor network designed to instrument automotive engine test benches is presented.

Radio is the most important part of any wireless network. Radio Access Network (RAN) has been virtualized and disaggregated into different functions whose location is best defined by the requirements and economics of the use case. This Virtualized RAN (vRAN) architecture separates network functions from the underlying hardware and so 5G can leverage virtualization of the RAN to implement these functions. The easy expandability and manageability of the vRAN support the expansion of the network capacity and deployment of new features and algorithms for streamlining resource usage. In this paper, we try to address the problem of scheduling 5G vRAN with mid-haul network capacity constraints as a combinatorial optimization problem. We transformed it to a Quadratic Unconstrained Binary Optimization (QUBO) problem by using a newly proposed quantum-based algorithm and compared our implementation with existing classical algorithms. This work has demonstrated the advantage of quantum computers in solving a particular optimization problem in the Telecommunication domain and paves the way for solving critical real-world problems using quantum computers faster and better.
Kumar, S. A., Kumar, A., Bajaj, V., Singh, G. K..  2020.  An Improved Fuzzy Min–Max Neural Network for Data Classification. IEEE Transactions on Fuzzy Systems. 28:1910–1924.
Hyperbox classifier is an efficient tool for modern pattern classification problems due to its transparency and rigorous use of Euclidian geometry. Fuzzy min-max (FMM) network efficiently implements the hyperbox classifier, and has been modified several times to yield better classification accuracy. However, the obtained accuracy is not up to the mark. Therefore, in this paper, a new improved FMM (IFMM) network is proposed to increase the accuracy rate. In the proposed IFMM network, a modified constraint is employed to check the expandability of a hyperbox. It also uses semiperimeter of the hyperbox along with k-nearest mechanism to select the expandable hyperbox. In the proposed IFMM, the contraction rules of conventional FMM and enhanced FMM (EFMM) are also modified using semiperimeter of a hyperbox in order to balance the size of both overlapped hyperboxes. Experimental results show that the proposed IFMM network outperforms the FMM, k-nearest FMM, and EFMM by yielding more accuracy rate with less number of hyperboxes. The proposed methods are also applied to histopathological images to know the best magnification factor for classification.
Li, C.-Y., Chang, C.-H., Lu, D.-Y..  2020.  Full-Duplex Self-Recovery Optical Fibre Transport System Based on a Passive Single-Line Bidirectional Optical Add/Drop Multiplexer. IEEE Photonics Journal. 12:1–10.
A full-duplex self-recovery optical fibre transport system is proposed on the basis of a novel passive single-line bidirectional optical add/drop multiplexer (SBOADM). This system aims to achieve an access network with low complexity and network protection capability. Polarisation division multiplexing technique, optical double-frequency application and wavelength reuse method are also employed in the transport system to improve wavelength utilisation efficiency and achieve colourless optical network unit. When the network comprises a hybrid tree-ring topology, the downstream signals can be bidirectionally transmitted and the upstream signals can continuously be sent back to the central office in the reverse pathways due to the remarkable routing function of the SBOADM. Thus, no complicated optical multiplexer/de-multiplexer components or massive optical switches are required in the transport system. If a fibre link failure occurs in the ring topology, then the blocked network connections can be recovered by switching only a single optical switch preinstalled in the remote node. Simulation results show that the proposed architecture can recover the network function effectively and provide identical transmission performance to overcome the impact of a breakpoint in the network. The proposed transport system presents remarkable flexibility and convenience in expandability and breakpoint self-recovery.
Yang, S., Liu, S., Huang, J., Su, H., Wang, H..  2020.  Control Conflict Suppressing and Stability Improving for an MMC Distributed Control System. IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics. 35:13735–13747.
Compared with traditional centralized control strategies, the distributed control systems significantly improve the flexibility and expandability of an modular multilevel converter (MMC). However, the stability issue in the MMC distributed control system with the presence of control loop coupling interactions is rarely discussed in existing research works. This article is to improve the stability of an MMC distributed control system by inhibiting the control conflict due to the coupling interactions among control loops with incomplete control information. By modeling the MMC distributed control system, the control loop coupling interactions are analyzed and the essential cause of control conflict is revealed. Accordingly, a control parameter design principle is proposed to effectively suppress the disturbances from the targeted control conflict and improve the MMC system stability. The rationality of the theoretical analysis and the effectiveness of the control parameter design principle are confirmed by simulation and experimental results.
Li, Y., Zhou, W., Wang, H..  2020.  F-DPC: Fuzzy Neighborhood-Based Density Peak Algorithm. IEEE Access. 8:165963–165972.
Clustering is a concept in data mining, which divides a data set into different classes or clusters according to a specific standard, making the similarity of data objects in the same cluster as large as possible. Clustering by fast search and find of density peaks (DPC) is a novel clustering algorithm based on density. It is simple and novel, only requiring fewer parameters to achieve better clustering effect, without the requirement for iterative solution. And it has expandability and can detect the clustering of any shape. However, DPC algorithm still has some defects, such as it employs the clear neighborhood relations to calculate local density, so it cannot identify the neighborhood membership of different values of points from the distance of points and It is impossible to accurately cluster the data of the multi-density peak. The fuzzy neighborhood density peak clustering algorithm is proposed for this shortcoming (F-DPC): novel local density is defined by the fuzzy neighborhood relationship. The fuzzy set theory can be used to make the fuzzy neighborhood function of local density more sensitive, so that the clustering for data set of various shapes and densities is more robust. Experiments show that the algorithm has high accuracy and robustness.
Hikawa, H..  2020.  Nested Pipeline Hardware Self-Organizing Map for High Dimensional Vectors. 2020 27th IEEE International Conference on Electronics, Circuits and Systems (ICECS). :1–4.
This paper proposes a hardware Self-Organizing Map (SOM) for high dimensional vectors. The proposed SOM is based on nested architecture with pipeline processing. Due to homogeneous modular structure, the nested architecture provides high expandability. The original nested SOM was designed to handle low-dimensional vectors with fully parallel computation, and it yielded very high performance. In this paper, the architecture is extended to handle much higher dimensional vectors by using sequential computation, which requires multiple clocks to process a single vector. To increase the performance, the proposed architecture employs pipeline computation, in which search of winner neuron and weight vector update are carried out simultaneously. Operable clock frequency for the system was 60 MHz, and its throughput reached 15012 million connection updates per second (MCUPS).

In this paper, a generic model for a differential stripline is created using machine learning (ML) based regression analysis. A recursive approach of creating various inputs is adapted instead of traditional design of experiments (DoE) approach. This leads to reduction of number of simulations as well as control the data points required for performing simulations. The generic model is developed using 48 simulations. It is comparable to the linear regression model, which is obtained using 1152 simulations. Additionally, a tabular W-element model of a differential stripline is used to take into consideration the frequency-dependent dielectric loss. In order to demonstrate the expandability of this approach, the methodology was applied to two differential pairs of striplines in the frequency range of 10 MHz to 20 GHz.
Hosseinipour, A., Hojabri, H..  2020.  Small-Signal Stability Analysis and Active Damping Control of DC Microgrids Integrated With Distributed Electric Springs. IEEE Transactions on Smart Grid. 11:3737–3747.
Series DC electric springs (DCESs) are a state-of-the-art demand-side management (DSM) technology with the capability to reduce energy storage requirements of DC microgrids by manipulating the power of non-critical loads (NCLs). As the stability of DC microgrids is highly prone to dynamic interactions between the system active and passive components, this study intends to conduct a comprehensive small-signal stability analysis of a community DC microgrid integrated with distributed DCESs considering the effect of destabilizing constant power loads (CPLs). For this purpose, after deriving the small-signal model of a DCES-integrated microgrid, the sensitivity of the system dominant frequency modes to variations of various physical and control parameters is evaluated by means of eigenvalue analysis. Next, an active damping control method based on virtual RC parallel impedance is proposed for series DCESs to compensate for their slow dynamic response and to provide a dynamic stabilization function within the microgrid. Furthermore, impedance-based stability analysis is utilized to study the DC microgrid expandability in terms of integration with multiple DCESs. Finally, several case studies are presented to verify analytical findings of the paper and to evaluate the dynamic performance of the DC microgrid.
Jeong, S., Kang, S., Yang, J.-S..  2020.  PAIR: Pin-aligned In-DRAM ECC architecture using expandability of Reed-Solomon code. 2020 57th ACM/IEEE Design Automation Conference (DAC). :1–6.
The computation speed of computer systems is getting faster and the memory has been enhanced in performance and density through process scaling. However, due to the process scaling, DRAMs are recently suffering from numerous inherent faults. DRAM vendors suggest In-DRAM Error Correcting Code (IECC) to cope with the unreliable operation. However, the conventional IECC schemes have concerns about miscorrection and performance degradation. This paper proposes a pin-aligned In-DRAM ECC architecture using the expandability of a Reed-Solomon code (PAIR), that aligns ECC codewords with DQ pin lines (data passage of DRAM). PAIR is specialized in managing widely distributed inherent faults without the performance degradation, and its correction capability is sufficient to correct burst errors as well. The experimental results analyzed with the latest DRAM model show that the proposed architecture achieves up to 106 times higher reliability than XED with 14% performance improvement, and 10 times higher reliability than DUO with a similar performance, on average.
Wang, Z., Chen, L..  2020.  Re-encrypted Data Access Control Scheme Based on Blockchain. 2020 IEEE 6th International Conference on Computer and Communications (ICCC). :1757–1764.
Nowadays, massive amounts of data are stored in the cloud, how to access control the cloud data has become a prerequisite for protecting the security of cloud data. In order to address the problems of centralized control and privacy protection in current access control, we propose an access control scheme based on the blockchain and re-encryption technology, namely PERBAC-BC scheme. The access control policy is managed by the decentralized and immutability characteristics of blockchain, while the re-encryption is protected by the trusted computing characteristic of blockchain and the privacy is protected by the identity re-encryption technology. The overall structure diagram and detailed execution flow of the scheme are given in this paper. Experimental results show that, compared with the traditional hybrid encryption scheme, the time and space consumption is less when the system is expanded. Then, the time and space performance of each part of the scheme is simulated, and the security of blockchain is proved. The results also show that the time and space performance of the scheme are better and the security is stronger, which has certain stability and expandability.

The interface permits the client to scan for a subjective utility on the Play Store; the authorizations posting and the protection arrangement are then routinely recovered, on all events imaginable. The client has then the capability of choosing an interesting authorization, and a posting of pertinent sentences are separated with the guide of the privateer's inclusion and introduced to them, alongside a right depiction of the consent itself. Such an interface allows the client to rapidly assess the security-related dangers of an Android application, by utilizing featuring the pertinent segments of the privateer's inclusion and by introducing helpful data about shrewd authorizations. A novel procedure is proposed for the assessment of privateer's protection approaches with regards to Android applications. The gadget actualized widely facilitates the way toward understanding the security ramifications of placing in 1/3 birthday celebration applications and it has just been checked in a situation to feature troubling examples of uses. The gadget is created in light of expandability, and correspondingly inclines in the strategy can without trouble be worked in to broaden the unwavering quality and adequacy. Likewise, if your application handles non-open or delicate individual information, it would be ideal if you also allude to the extra necessities in the “Individual and Sensitive Information” territory underneath. These Google Play necessities are notwithstanding any prerequisites endorsed by method for material security or data assurance laws.

The anomaly detection of time series is a hotspot of time series data mining. The own characteristics of different anomaly detectors determine the abnormal data that they are good at. There is no detector can be optimizing in all types of anomalies. Moreover, it still has difficulties in industrial production due to problems such as a single detector can't be optimized at different time windows of the same time series. This paper proposes an adaptive model based on time series characteristics and selecting appropriate detector and run-time parameters for anomaly detection, which is called ATSDLN(Adaptive Time Series Detector Learning Network). We take the time series as the input of the model, and learn the time series representation through FCN. In order to realize the adaptive selection of detectors and run-time parameters according to the input time series, the outputs of FCN are the inputs of two sub-networks: the detector selection network and the run-time parameters selection network. In addition, the way that the variable layer width design of the parameter selection sub-network and the introduction of transfer learning make the model be with more expandability. Through experiments, it is found that ATSDLN can select appropriate anomaly detector and run-time parameters, and have strong expandability, which can quickly transfer. We investigate the performance of ATSDLN in public data sets, our methods outperform other methods in most cases with higher effect and better adaptation. We also show experimental results on public data sets to demonstrate how model structure and transfer learning affect the effectiveness.
Raulamo-Jurvanen, Päivi, Hosio, Simo, Mäntylä, Mika V..  2019.  Practitioner Evaluations on Software Testing Tools. Proceedings of the Evaluation and Assessment on Software Engineering. :57–66.
In software engineering practice, evaluating and selecting the software testing tools that best fit the project at hand is an important and challenging task. In scientific studies of software engineering, practitioner evaluations and beliefs have recently gained interest, and some studies suggest that practitioners find beliefs of peers more credible than empirical evidence. To study how software practitioners evaluate testing tools, we applied online opinion surveys (n=89). We analyzed the reliability of the opinions utilizing Krippendorff's alpha, intra-class correlation coefficient (ICC), and coefficients of variation (CV). Negative binomial regression was used to evaluate the effect of demographics. We find that opinions towards a specific tool can be conflicting. We show how increasing the number of respondents improves the reliability of the estimates measured with ICC. Our results indicate that on average, opinions from seven experts provide a moderate level of reliability. From demographics, we find that technical seniority leads to more negative evaluations. To improve the understanding, robustness, and impact of the findings, we need to conduct further studies by utilizing diverse sources and complementary methods.

We propose a method of eliciting requirements for several different systems together. We focus on systems used by one user at the same time become such systems inherently give influences on with other. We expect such influences help a requirements analyst to be aware of unknown requirements of the user. Any modeling notations are used to explore the combination among systems causing such influences because the differences among the notations give diverse viewpoints to the analyst. To specify such mutual influences, we introduce semantic tags represented by stereo types. We also introduce other semantic tags so that the analyst can judge whether the combination brings advantages to the user. We apply our method to an example and we confirm the method works.
