Empirical Quantification and Characterization of TV White Space Spectrum in South-East Nigeria

--A Adenola, A C O Azubogu and C C Okezie

Localized under-utilized portions of the terrestrial TV bands, called the TV White Space (TVWS), present a new opportunity for wireless network in a frequency band which has very good functional characteristics. According to the regulations for TVWS spectrum access, unlicensed use is allowed only when it does not adversely affect the licensed (primary) users. In this paper, a comprehensive quantitative assessment and estimates of the TVWS in the 260-960 MHz band for urban, semi-urban and rural areas of Anambra State in the south-east part of Nigeria are presented using an inexpensive RF Explorer. The average available TVWS in the UHF band is more than 100 MHz, and 85% of the TV bands in 471-783 MHz range are not in use in the urban area, while as much as 98% are unused in rural areas.

Reactive Power Compensation Through Unified Power Quality Conditioner: A Review

--Namrata Hedaoo and Manoj Gupta

Wide applications of power electronic-based loads have increased the power quality problems. Power quality is an issue at the distribution level due to the nonlinear behavior of the power electronic-based loads. Among the various compensating devices, Unified Power Quality Conditioner (UPQC) is an active power conditioning device used to compensate both harmonics and reactive power. UPQC is designed to lessen voltage and current quality problems, including those resulting from single-phase faults. UPQC for active and reactive power compensation has different control strategies. A three-phase UPQC with cross-phase connection, the behavior of UPQC with sudden switching of R-L loads and the occurrence of different shunt faults are analyzed. Control strategy for cross-phase connected UPQC is capable of compensating load terminal voltage and load current effectively.

An SFLA Approach to Solving Profit-Based Unit Commitment Problem Under Deregulation

--P V Rama Krishna and Sukhdeo Sao

In this paper, a Shuffled Frog Leaping Algorithm (SFLA) is proposed to address the Profit-Based Unit Commitment (PBUC) problem under deregulation. The PBUC problem is one of the major tasks for a power producer and is a highly complex, multi-constrained, nonlinear optimization problem. Some of the recently developed algorithms like GA, PSO, BBO, ACO, etc. are available to solve this complex problem, but so far there has been no such ideal technique which can completely handle the computational time and the large dimensionality of the problem. In this scenario, an attempt is made to solve this problem using SFLA. The problem is formulated as a bi-objective optimization problem with profit maximization of generation companies as one objective and emission level limitation of generating units as second objective. The proposed algorithm is tested on IEEE 10 unit 10 hours load demand as input data for simulation using MATLAB. The results are compared with GA and PSO. From the results, it is observed that SFLA effectively handles the dimension of the problem and achieves maximum profit and minimum production cost with less computational time.

Tuning of PI Controllers by GA and PSO Techniques for Sensorless Vector Control of Induction Motor

--Srinivas Gangishetti and Tarakalyani Sandipamu

The paper deals with the design of different control schemes for vector control of induction motor. The conventional control method like Proportional Integral (PI) controller is used to find responses of induction motor like speed and torque and parameters like peak overshoot, peak time and setting time for the above responses. The conventional schemes of motor control are sensitive to parameter changes and hence will not be accurate. The limitations of the above methods are overcome by implementing evolutionary control techniques like Genetic Algorithm (GA) and Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO). The simulation studies are done in MATLAB/SIMULINK, and the above conventional control method is compared with evolutionary techniques like GA and PSO. The performance characteristics are improved by reducing steady state errors.

Performance Analysis of Three-Phase Self-Excited Induction Generator Using DSTATCOM

--K Mahammad Rafi, P V N Prasad and Anam Fatima

The paper presents the control of a Self-Excited Induction Generator (SEIG) using DSTATCOM. The performance of the DSTATCOM depends on the extraction of the reference source currents. For this purpose, the control strategy adopted is Instantaneous Reactive Power (IRP) theory which is implemented using MATLAB/SIMULINK. The generation of the Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) pulses triggers the IGBT of the Voltage Source Inverter (VSI)-based DSTATCOM. This is achieved using ARDUINO DUE, a 32-bit ARM core microcontroller interfaced with MATLAB/SIMULINK. The performance of the SEIG is analyzed experimentally in a hardware prototype to evaluate the effect of DSTATCOM. It is observed that SEIG with DSTATCOM provides voltage sag mitigation, reactive power compensation and power factor improvement.

Automated Teller Machines (ATMs): The Changing Face of Banking in India

Bank Management
Information and communication technology has changed the way in which banks provide services to its customers. These days the customers are able to perform their routine banking transactions without even entering the bank premises. ATM is one such development in recent years, which provides remote banking services all over the world, including India. This paper analyzes the development of this self-service banking in India based on the secondary data.

The Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is playing a very important role in the progress and advancement in almost all walks of life. The deregulated environment has provided an opportunity to restructure the means and methods of delivery of services in many areas, including the banking sector. The ICT has been a focused issue in the past two decades in Indian banking. In fact, ICTs are enabling the banks to change the way in which they are functioning. Improved customer service has become very important for the very survival and growth of banking sector in the reforms era. The technological advancements, deregulations, and intense competition due to the entry of private sector and foreign banks have altered the face of banking from one of mere intermediation to one of provider of quick, efficient and customer-friendly services. With the introduction and adoption of ICT in the banking sector, the customers are fast moving away from the traditional branch banking system to the convenient and comfort of virtual banking. The most important virtual banking services are phone banking, mobile banking, Internet banking and ATM banking. These electronic channels have enhanced the delivery of banking services accurately and efficiently to the customers. The ATMs are an important part of a bank’s alternative channel to reach the customers, to showcase products and services and to create brand awareness. This is reflected in the increase in the number of ATMs all over the world. ATM is one of the most widely used remote banking services all over the world, including India. This paper analyzes the growth of ATMs of different bank groups in India.
International Scenario

If ATMs are largely available over geographically dispersed areas, the benefit from using an ATM will increase as customers will be able to access their bank accounts from any geographic location. This would imply that the value of an ATM network increases with the number of available ATM locations, and the value of a bank network to a customer will be determined in part by the final network size of the banking system. The statistical information on the growth of branches and ATM network in select countries.

Indian Scenario

The financial services industry in India has witnessed a phenomenal growth, diversification and specialization since the initiation of financial sector reforms in 1991. Greater customer orientation is the only way to retain customer loyalty and withstand competition in the liberalized world. In a market-driven strategy of development, customer preference is of paramount importance in any economy. Gone are the days when customers used to come to the doorsteps of banks. Now the banks are required to chase the customers; only those banks which are customercentric and extremely focused on the needs of their clients can succeed in their business today.
