1 Khan, Faisal HabibTransfer function mapping for a grid connected PV system using reverse synthesis techniqueMathematical modeling of power electronic converters is a historical problem. Numerous efforts have been documented in literature to model different converter topologies and their control schemes since the 1940s. Traditional modeling approaches avoid transfer function derivation due to high degree o...2013-01-01
2 Liu, FengEffects of Li doping on H-diffusion in MgH2: A first-principles studyThe effects of Li doping in MgH2 on H-diffusion process are investigated, using first-principles calculations.

12 Balasubramonian, RajeevQuantifying the relationship between the power delivery network and architectural policies in a 3D-stacked memory deviceMany of the pins on a modern chip are used for power delivery. If fewer pins were used to supply the same current, the wires and pins used for power delivery would have to carry larger currents over longer distances. This results in an "IR-drop" problem, where some of the voltage is dropped across t...2013-01-01
