    Co-existance between AC-distribution and DC-distribution: in the view of appliances 

    Kittiphan Techakittiroj; Virach Wongpaibool (2009)

    This work demonstrates the possibility of using the available-in-market appliances in a DC-distribution system. This demonstration also represents an alternative migration from AC-distribution to DC-distribution. DC-distribution has been shown to be more efficient and provided good power quality in a distribution system. The power supply technology in the modern appliances makes the possibility of an appliance to be used in either both AC-distribution and DC-distribution without any modification. Appliances are tested by using an AC-source ...

    Single Loop and Double Loop Control of AU Self-Balancing Bicycle (AUSB) 

    Narong Aphiratsakun; Kittiphan Techakittiroj (2012-12)

    This paper evaluates the controllers performance on AU Self-balancing Bicycle (AUSB). The gyroscope is used to sense the balanced position of the bicycle while an encoder is used to sense the position of the flywheel. The Single loop uses a gyroscope sensor and an additional encoder sensor is used in the Double loop. The main objective of this paper is to demonstrate the improvement in the performance of the AUSB. In the Single loop control, the bicycle can balance within a certain flywheel angle, and then the bicycle will fall. In the Double ...
