Distributed Control of a Nanogrid Using DC Bus Signalling
(University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2006)
A nanogrid is a standalone hybrid renewable system that uses distributed renewable and non-renewable sources to supply power to local loads. The system is based on power electronics, with interface converters allowing the ...
Modelling the glucose-insulin regulatory system for glycaemic control in neonatal intensive care.
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2009)
Hyperglycaemia is a common condition in the very low birth weight infant and is linked to mortality and increased risks of morbidities such as sepsis and retinopathy of prematurity. The preterm neonate is in a state of ...
Experimental and Analytical Studies of Semi-Active and Passive Structural Control of Buildings
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2007)
This thesis explores semi-active structural control methods for mitigating damage during seismic events. Semi-active devices offer the adaptability of active devices in conjunction with low power requirements and thus ...
