Abstract

This paper presents a new table based algorithm for overcurrent relay with inverse-time characteristic. The algorithm is based on loading the adequate time vector through which inverse-time characteristic is modeled. It uses samples of the current and calculates rms value. The rms current represents an input value for the index estimation what determines corresponding element from already loaded time vector. Since the calculations used in this algorithm are based on simple mathematical operations, short processing time is achieved. Performances of the algorithm are tested by several computer-generated signals. Furthermore, comparative analyses showed indisputably that suggested procedure possesses significant advantages compared to other solutions: simplicity, high speed of operation and accuracy.

Abstract

New complexes of copper(II) with S-alkenyl derivatives of thiosalicylic acid (alkenyl = propenyl-(L1), isobutenyl-(L2)) have been synthesized and characterized by microanalysis, infrared spectra, magnetic measurements, and by NMR spectra. The cytotoxic activity of two newly synthesized precursor S-alkenyl derivatives of thiosalicylic acid were tested using an MTT colorimetric technique on HCT-116 human colon carcinoma cells. The cytotoxic effect of the copper(II)- complexes were higher compared to the cytotoxicity of the corresponding ligand (for concentrations from 31.25 to 250 μM). Copper(II)-complexes showed a slightly lower cytotoxicity compared to cisplatin. Complexes of copper(II) with S-alkenyl derivatives of thiosalicylic acid (at concentrations from 250 to 1000 μM) had a cytotoxic effect on HCT-116 cells compared to cisplatin.
