Cluster-based energy efficient protocol for wireless sensor networks
Chalapathi Rao, Y. and Dr. Ch. Santhi Rani

The cluster-based technique is one of the good perspectives to reduce energy consumption in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). The lifetime of WSNs is maximized by using the uniform cluster location and balancing the network load between the clusters. This paper presents a simulation analysis of how the maximum number of retransmissions impacts the reliability of data transmission, the energy consumption of the nodes and the end-to-end communication delay in the IEEE 802.15.4/ZigBee beacon-...

New topologies of kalman filters for dynamic power system estimation
Arpit Khandelwal, Akash Saxena and Ankush Tandon

Power system state estimation requires error less data to estimate the exact states of the power system. The Estimation process is done by Energy Management System (EMS) at the control centre with the help of estimated data. In practical conditions, collected data contain the measurement and process errors. These errors are due to high speed measuring devices and Phasor Measurement Units (PMU) installed on different buses. Due to communication errors, different filtration techniques are...

The pharmacology of western drugs
Dr. John Glynn and Prof. Rashid Bhikha

Western pharmacology is a relatively new scientific discipline, having originated around 150 years ago. It can be divided into two broad categories: pharmacodynamics (the effect drugs have on the body) and pharmacokinetics (the effect the body has upon the drug). This review is concerned with the former: the way drugs exert their pharmacological action. The keystone of Western pharmacology is based on the Receptor Theory, where the drug acts as a “key” to undo a “lock in specific parts of...

Quantum plasma condensate as new source of energy: The operation principle of the plasma ultraviolet laser
Kulakov, A.V. and Tyutyunnik, V.M.

A fundamentally new direction in the theory and technology of the non-ideal plasma was developed. Researches have made it possible to predict and confirm the existence of fundamentally new state of matter, which is quantum plasma condensate, which combines the traits inherent in normal fluid and signs characteristic of ionized plasma in the usual sense. Quantum plasma condensate is a renewable, environmentally friendly and efficient alternative energy source. This source is the only ecology...

Review: carbohydrates chemistry
Fathia, M. I. and Mubark, E.O.

Carbohydrates are the most abundant organic compounds in the plant world. They are natural products, produced by photosynthesis processes in plants. They act as storehouses of chemical energy (glucose, starch, and glycogen), they are components of supportive structures in plants (cellulose), crustacean shells (chitin), and connective tissues in animals (acidic polysaccharides); and they are essential components of nucleic acids (D-ribose and 2-deoxy-D-ribose (DNA and RNA)) and for energy...
