Abstract

This work is a review of current trends in the stray flux signal processing techniques applied to the diagnosis of electrical machines. Initially, a review of the most commonly used standard methods is performed in the diagnosis of failures in induction machines and using stray flux; and then specifically it is treated and performed the algorithms based on statistical analysis using cumulants and polyspectra. In addition, the theoretical foundations of the analyzed algorithms and examples applications are shown from the practical point of view where the benefits that processing can have using HOSA and its relationship with stray flux signal analysis, are illustrated.

Abstract

A new approach to achieve fault diagnosis and prognosis of bearing based on hidden Markov model (HMM) with multi-features is proposed. Firstly, the time domain, frequency domain, and wavelet packet decomposition are utilized to extract the condition features of bearing vibration signals, and the PCA method is merged into multi-features to reduce their dimensionality. Then the low-dimensional features are processed to obtain the scalar probabilities of each bearing condition, which are multiplied to generate the observed values of HMM. The results reveal that the established approach can well diagnose fault conditions and achieve the remaining life estimation of bearing.

Abstract

In this article, the study of qualitative properties of a special type of non-autonomous nonlinear second order ordinary differential equations containing Rayleigh damping and generalized Duffing functions is considered. General conditions for the stability and periodicity of solutions are deduced via fixed point theorems and the Lyapunov function method. A gyro dynamic application represented by the motion of axi-symmetric gyro mounted on a sinusoidal vibrating base is analyzed by the interpretation of its dynamical motion in terms of Euler’s angles via the deduced theoretical results. Moreover, the existence of homoclinic bifurcation and the transition to chaotic behaviour of the gyro motion in terms of main gyro parameters are proved. Numerical verifications of theoretical results are also considered.

Abstract

In recent years, China’s environmental pollution is serious, manufacturing industry has become one of the main targets of government environmental regulation. This paper uses the SBM model to calculate efficiency value of 29 manufacturing industries from 2008 to 2017. The results show that the overall performance of environmental regulation in manufacturing industry is high (the average efficiency value is 0.7806), but it shows a declining trend. The efficiency of environmental regulation also varies widely. The government should consider focusing on the 11 industries with low SBM value in the next step to improve the performance of environmental regulation.

Summary

Preliminary studies which may be of significance for research against coronaviruses, including SARS-CoV-2, which has caused an epidemic in China, are presented. An analysis was made of publicly available data that contain information about important metabolites neutralizing coronaviruses. Preliminary studies show that especially Ficus, barley, thistle and sundew should be additionally tested with the aim of producing medicines for coronavirus.

Abstract

The trade effect, in this article, mainly refers to the trade impacts of member countries and non-member states. This article first summarises the empirical analysis methods of trade effects of regional economic integration and then combines the methods widely used in the current research, proposes research methods suitable for Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade effect analysis, establishes models and conducts empirical analysis and then analyses empirical evidence, by which to predict the trend of post-TPP and its future influence.

Abstract

In order to handle the non-linear system and the complex disturbance in marine engines, a finite-time convergence active disturbance rejection control (ADRC) technique is developed for the control of engine speed. First, a model for the relationship between engine speed and fuel injection is established on the basis of the mean value engine model. Then, to deal with the load disturbances and model parameter perturbation of the diesel engine, this paper designs an ADRC approach to achieve finite-time stability. Finally, simulation experiments show that the proposed method has better control effect and stronger disturbance rejection ability in comparison with the standard linear ADRC.

Abstract

Swap trailer transport organisation problem originates from the traditional vehicle routing problem (VRP). Most of the studies on the problems assume that the travelling times of vehicles are fixed values. In this paper, the uncertainties of driving times are considered and a chance constrained programming problem is proposed. An improved simulated annealing algorithm is used to solve the problem proposed. The model and algorithm described in this paper are studied through a case study, and the influence of uncertainty on the results is analysed. The conclusion of this study provides theoretical support for the practice of trailer pickup transport.

Abstract

According to the analysis from the number of tourists who went to Lanzhou during 2009–2019, the ARIMA model of the number of tourists to Lanzhou was established. The results show that the AR(3) model is used to predict the number of tourists who traveled to Lanzhou during 2009–2019. The average relative error between the predicted value and the actual value is 1.03%, which can be used to predict and analyze the number of tourists in Lanzhou in the future.

Abstract

A model for predator-prey interactions with herd behaviour is proposed. Novelty includes a smooth transition from individual behaviour (low number of prey) to herd behaviour (large number of prey). The model is analysed using standard stability and bifurcations techniques. We prove that the system undergoes a Hopf bifurcation as we vary the parameter that represents the efficiency of predators (dependent on the predation rate, for instance), giving rise to sustained oscillations in the system. The proposed model appears to possess more realistic features than the previous approaches while being also relatively easier to analyse and understand.
