A New Model Solid State Transformer is used as a controllable bidirectional transmission device that can transfer power between asynchronous networks and functionally similar to back-to-back-HVDC.A solid-state transformer is the solution and it provide the efficient functioning as a conventional transformer and also provide other benefits, particularly on-demand reactive power maintenance for smart grid, power quality and voltage conversion. Recently, another high-frequency link power conversion system, the solid-state transformer, has garnered a great deal of...
Complex health care interventions: Characteristics relevant for ethical analysis in health technology assessmentKristin Bakke Lysdahl & Bjørn Hofmann
Complexity entails methodological challenges in assessing health care interventions. In order to address these challenges, a series of characteristics of complexity have been identified in the Health Technology Assessment (HTA) literature. These characteristics are primarily identified and developed to facilitate effectiveness, safety, and cost-effectiveness analysis. However, ethics is also a constitutive part of HTA, and it is not given that the conceptions of complexity that appears relevant for effectiveness, safety, and cost-effectiveness analysis are also...
Phytochemical investigation of Encephalartos villosus Lehm. leaves afford two new illudalane sesquiterpenes namely Encephaldiene 1 and Encephaldiene 2 together with four known flavone glycosides, Luteolin-7-rutinoside, Luteolin-7-glucoside, Luteolin-7-rhamnoside and Apigenin-7-glucoside. The structures of the isolated compounds were elucidated by means of spectroscopic methods including 1D and 2D NMR experiments along with HRESIMS spectrometry. Antimicrobial activity of CHCl3 and MeOH extracts was investigated. Both extracts showed antibacterial activity against Gram-positive bacteria Streptococcus pneumonia and Bacillus subtilis, and...
Background: Moving toes syndrome has been classically described as an organic movement disorder, on occasion related to peripheral nerve injuries. The association between nerve trauma and movement disorders has become a controversial topic, and the functional etiology of moving toes syndrome has recently been proposed. Case Report: We describe two cases of moving toes syndrome with clinical features typically suggestive of a functional movement disorder. Discussion: The presence of entrainability and distractibility in the described...
Die Bewertung der Umweltwirkung landwirtschaftlicher Fahrzeuge erfordert realitätsnahe Testmethoden zur Erhebung von Abgasemissionen. Am Motorenprüfstand sind dynamische Drehzahl- und Drehmomentzyklen Stand der Technik. Im Traktor eingebaute Motoren wurden überwiegend stationär bei gleichbleibender Drehzahl und Last mithilfe einer Zapfwellenbremse geprüft. Mit einem auf Basis des NRTC (nonroad transient cycle) adaptierten Messzyklus lassen sich reproduzierbare, transiente Emissions- und Verbrauchsmessungen an Traktoren durchführen. Die Mittelung der Drehzahl- und Drehmomentvorgaben in 10-Sekunden-Intervallen (10-s-NRTC) ermöglicht trotz unvermeidbarer Trägheitsmomente am Traktorenprüfstand...
We prove the orthogonality of the eigenfields of the spectral problem rot4S+?rotS = 0 in the space of the poloidal field in a spherical shell
The solutions of stationary and non-stationary diffusion-advection equations of radon transport in many-layered geological media by integro-interpolation method are presented
Work is devoted research and development of methods of the analysis of model of regulation of multidimensional system. Using files of adjusting signs, procedure which allows to lower an order of an initial matrix of central parameters of system is constructed and to reduce a matrix of any order always to a matrix of the two-port network with the fixed poles of an input and a system exit.
We propose an algorithm for estimating the fractal dimension of time series of radon fields. Some regularities of the fractal dimension with the seismic activity in South Kamchatka.

Objective The wrist drop caused by damage to radial nerve is a very rare condition. The aim of the current study is to present our diagnostic and treatment criteria in radial tunnel syndrome. Methods We performed a retrospective study on 16 patients. Between January 2006 and june 2014, the clinical assessment of consecutive operated patients with radial tunnel syndrome in Rize Education and Research Hospital and Kasımpaşa Military Hospital were analysed. The diagnosis and severity...
Reactions of ketene dithioacetal for a new versatile synthesis of 4,5-substituted 3-aminothiophene-2-carboxylate derivativesSatish M. Chavan, , , Pankaj B. Aware & Poonam S. Patil
Poly substituted 3-aminothiophenes were successfully synthesized in good yields by using a one-pot protocol via ketene S,S-acetal as an intermediate in basic medium (K2CO3/N,N-dimethylformamide) followed by Dieckmann condensation with ethyl bromoacetate. Further, chemistry of thiophenes was explored using active functional groups such as C3–NH2, C4–CN and C5–SCH3 on the thiophene nucleus. Synthesis of ethyl 3-acetamido-4-cyano-5-(methylthio)thiophene-2-carboxylate derivatives and ethyl 3-amino-4-carbamoyl-5-(methylthio)thiophene-2-carboxylate derivatives.
Juvenile Court Statistics 2013 describes delinquency cases handled between 1985 and 2013 and petitioned status offense cases handled between 1995 and 2013 by U.S. courts with juvenile jurisdiction. National estimates of juvenile court delinquency caseloads in 2013 were based on analyses of 749,722 automated case records and court-level statistics summarizing an additional 44,219 cases. Estimates of status offense cases formally processed by juvenile courts in 2013 were based on analyses of 75,411 automated case-level records...
This publication compiles statistics from data sources across the Criminal Justice System (CJS), to provide a combined perspective on the typical experiences of different ethnic groups. No causative links can be drawn from these summary statistics, and no controls have been applied to account for differences in circumstances between groups (e.g. average income or age); differences observed may indicate areas worth further investigation, but should not be taken as evidence of bias or as direct...
The memory of the First World War has played a prominent role in Australian political culture. The Anzac legend, originating in the 1915 Gallipoli campaign, soon became the foundational narrative of an emerging nation. Despite profound changes in Australian society in the following century, "Anzac" continues to serve as a complex signifier of national identity. The centenary of the First World War seemingly affirmed the centrality of the First World War in the national memory...
We estimate the momentum diffusion coefficient of a heavy quark within a pure SU(3) plasma at a temperature of about 1.5Tc. Large-scale Monte Carlo simulations on a series of lattices extending up to 1923×48 permit us to carry out a continuum extrapolation of the so-called color-electric imaginary-time correlator. The extrapolated correlator is analyzed with the help of theoretically motivated models for the corresponding spectral function. Evidence for a nonzero transport coefficient is found and, incorporating...
BACKGROUND The reported survival of implants depends on the definition used for the endpoint, usually revision. When screening through registry reports from different countries, it appears that revision is defined quite differently. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES The purposes of this study were to compare the definitions of revision among registry reports and to apply common clinical scenarios to these definitions. METHODS We downloaded or requested reports of all available national joint registries. Of the 23 registries we identified,...
Estradiol-induced alopecia in five dogs after contact with a transdermal gel used for the treatment of postmenopausal symptoms in womenMonika Maria Welle, Elizabeth A Mauldin, Dominique Judith Wiener, Hans J Koch, Silvia Rüfenacht & Ursula Mayer
BACKGROUND Noninflammatory alopecia is a frequent problem in dogs. Estrogen-induced alopecia is well described in dogs, with estrogen producing testicular tumors and canine female hyperestrogenism. OBJECTIVES To increase awareness that extensive alopecia in dogs can be caused by exposure to estradiol gel used by owners to treat their postmenopausal symptoms. ANIMALS Skin biopsies from five dogs with extensive alopecia were examined. METHODS Owners were asked for a thorough case history, including possible exposure to an...
