The paper addresses the Kinematic analysis and simulation of 6 D.O.F. of robot for industrial applications. An alternative design of a six-degrees-of-freedom manipulator based on the concept of an in-parallel actuated mechanism is presented. The basic kinematic equations for use of the manipulator are derived and the influences of the physical constraints on the range of motion in the practical design are discussed. We use robo analyzer software for determining the simulation results. Several possible applications which include the in-parallel mechanism as part of the manipulation system are suggested, and we determine D.H.Parameters for design.

In this study the temporal effect of speaking rate and focus is analyzed. The test syllables are /pi, pa, pu/, which are embedded in disyllabic words, and the subjects are eight native speakers of standard Chinese. Consonantal VOT and vowel duration, together with duration of the preceding and following segments, are analyzed. It is found that the effect of speaking rate is significant for vowel duration and consonantal VOT of the key syllable, and for the duration of the preceding and following segments. The effect of focus is also significant. Focal lengthening is obvious for vowel duration and consonantal VOT, and it can also spill out to the following segments.

Next generation communications will offer a broad range of services accessible to users any place at any time. Vertical handoff is the rudimentary requirement of the convergence of distinct access technologies. The dream is that users will not be joined down to a long-term contract with one lone operator and will rather than be adept to dynamically choose access provision on a per call basis. The evolving comparable marketplace will supply a alternative of access networks in any granted location, each offering distinct network technologies with varying characteristics to transport the user's communications application. Most existing upright handoff conclusion schemes are designed to rendezvous individual desires that may not achieve a good scheme presentation. In this paper a smart approach and network selection conclusion scheme is used. The understanding is founded on the fuzzy reasoning approach that chooses the best available network.

The quality of the Electrical power is effected by many factors like harmonic contamination, due to non-linear loads, such as large thyristor power converters, rectifiers, voltage and current flickering due to arc in arc furnaces, sag and swell due to the switching of the loads etc. One of the many solutions is the use of a combined system of shunt and active series filters like unified power quality conditioner (UPQC) This device combines a shunt active filter together with a series active filter in a back to back configuration, to simultaneously compensate the supply voltage and the load current or to mitigate any type of voltage and current fluctuations and power factor correction in a power distribution network.In this paper a novel design of UPQS is proposed which is composed of the DC/DC converter and the storage device connected to the DC link of UPQS for balancing the voltage interruption. Computer simulation by MATLAB/ SIMULINK has been used to support the developed concept.

This work presents a sub-module power management system for large-scale photovoltaic systems. Individual 'micro-converters' configure across strings of PV cells at terminals normally connected to bypass diodes. The converters enforce set voltage ratios among adjacent strings of cells, mitigating power loss due to shading, factory and lifetime variation, and other sources of mismatch. The balancing function extends to multiple series-connected PV modules through a dual-core cable and connector, enabling high-voltage operation with active and passive components exposed to only a fraction of total system voltage. Converters are based on a resonant switched-capacitor standard switching cell. The module-integrated converter achieves conversion efficiency over 99% for a wide range of mismatch scenarios and insertion loss below 0.1 %.
