  • Wireless power transfer enabled NOMA relay systems: two SIC modes and
           performance evaluation

    • Authors: Dinh-Thuan Do; Chi-Bao Le, Hong-Nhu Nguyen, Tam Nguyen Kieu, Si-Phu Le, Ngoc-Long Nguyen, Nhat-Tien Nguyen, Miroslav Voznak
      Abstract: In this study, we deploy design and performance analysis in new system model using a relaying model, energy harvesting, and non-orthogonal multi-access (NOMA) network. It is called such topology as wireless powered NOMA relaying (WPNR). In the proposed model, NOMA will be investigated in two cases including single successive interference cancellation (SIC) and dual SIC. Moreover, the simultaneous wireless information and power transfer (SWIPT) technology can be employed to feed energy to relays who intend to serve far NOMA users. In particular, exact outage probability expressions are provided to performance evaluation. The results from the simulations are used to demonstrate the outage performance of the proposed model in comparison with the current models and to verify correct of derived expressions.

    • Authors: Zaid A. Abdul Hassain; Amer Abbood AL-Behadili, Adham R. Azeez
      Abstract: In this paper a new approach for first order Chebyshev parallel coupled Bandpass filter resonant at 1 GHz is presented to obtain better results (wideband rejection, high selectivity and low bandpass insertion loss) compared to conventional design. The proposed filter (a tri-formation consisting of CSRR, SRR and stubs of stepped impedance are loaded microstrip resonator) can be configured, by laying split ring resonator (SRR) and complementary split ring resonator (CSRR) with 50 Ω microstrip lines, in addition to effect of loading two stubs of stepped impedance around center of midline microstrip with impedance line 55.36 Ω of parallel coupled. The proposed filter produces high selectivity from passband to stopband transition equals to 307.5 dB/GHz and an excellent wide stopband performance extend from 1.22 GHz to 5 GHz (harmonics repression till for 5 ƒ0); all are bellow -20 dB excepting one transmission zero of -19 dB, that can be eliminate the harmonic superior frequencies without using any external Bandstop filter. Also, enhancement low bandpass insertion loss level, where it reaches 0.25 dB at fundamental centered frequency (ƒ0 = 0.96 GHz) with 21% bandwidth. The proposed filter is designed and simulated with computer aided of Ansoft HFSS software package which ordinarily used in microwave application.

  • Enhancement algorithm for reverse loop technique on planar reverse loop

    • Authors: Mohamad Harris Misran; Sharul Kamal Abdul Rahim, Maizatul Alice Meor Said, Mohd Azlishah Othman
      Abstract: Finding a trade-off balance between wireless transfer efficiency (WTE) and distance is a key issue in wireless energy transfer (WET). This paper presents a method of reducing the radical alteration in WTE versus distance, by using a reverse loop technique on planar reverse loop antenna (PRLA). The design focuses on 13.56 MHz Near Field Communication (NFC). The first stage uses mathematical modelling, based on an analytical approach, to determine the size of the reverse loop using Matlab. The proposed model predicts the size of the reverse loop to stabilize the WTE at a closer distance. Next, full-wave electromagnetic simulations are applied, using the computer simulation technology (CST) MICROWAVE STUDIO®, to determine the WTE effect with distance changes with mismatch condition. Planar loop antennas (PLAs) are fabricated on glass-reinforced epoxy laminated sheets (FR4). A validation of the simulation result in a real test scenario, using these PLAs and PRLA, confirms a stability enhancement in WTE at closer distance using the reverse loop technique, compared to conventional designs.

  • Blind frequency offset estimator for OFDM systems

    • Authors: Sakina Atoui; Noureddine Doghmane, Saddek Afifi
      Abstract: Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) is of great interest for the development of the fifth-generation technology. It is the cornerstone of Multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems. Even though inter carrier interference (ICI) and inter symbol interference (ISI) have been processed for the fourth-generation standards, they still present a huge problem for the fifth-generation standards. This paper explores the tradeoff between the length of the cyclic prefix and the performances of the OFDM system. It also studies the effect of carrier frequency offset (CFO) on OFDM systems. A blind frequency offset estimator that uses the correlations between the remodulated sequence in the receiver side and the conventional received symbol is presented and a closed form solution is derived. The proposed estimator is derived under short interval when the correlation is high, so it has low computational complexity. Lin and Beek’s estimators are used for comparison. Simulations demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed estimator under Rayleigh fading channel.

  • Design and implementation of low power consumption wireless sensor node

    • Authors: Djadour Imededdin; Aidel Salih, Hicham Medkour
      Abstract: This work proposes an implementation of wireless sensor node characterized by its very low power consumption. The node comprises three main components: Xbee module, low power PIC microcontroller and digital sensor. The node can be set to sense then transmit data via one of two transmission methods: periodic and by interruptions. To evaluate the power consumption; currents in the node is measured during the different transmission stages for both methods. As a result, a significant reduction in the power consumption is shown particularly in sleep mode compared to conventional transmission methods. The characteristic of low power consumption makes the proposed node practically ecologic. It can also be fed with the extrem low power supplied by an energy harvesting system.

  • Cognitive radio for TVWS usage

    • Authors: Diego Pineda; Cesar Hernandez
      Abstract: Spectrum scarcity is an emerging issue in wireless communication systems due to the increasing demand of broadband services like mobile communications, wireless internet access, IoT applications, among others. The migration of analog TV to digital systems (a.k.a. digital TV switchover) has led to the release of a significant spectrum share that can be used to support said additional services. Likewise, TV white spaces emerge as spectral opportunities that can also be explored. Hence, cognitive radio (CR) presents itself as a feasible approach to efficiently use resources and exploit gaps within the spectrum. The goal of this paper is to unveil the state of the art revolving around the usage of TV white spaces, including some of the most important methods developed to exploit such spaces, upcoming opportunities, challenges for future research projects, and suggestions to improve current models.

  • Baud rate variations effect on virtual channel based on PIC

    • Authors: Sarmad K. Ibrahim; Hussein M. Hathal, Riyadh A. Abdulhussein
      Abstract: Recent year in the world the real applications, usually needed only a few key features of Universal Asynchronous Receiver Transmitter (UART). It is a type of serial communication protocol, which improves the problem of parallel communication and develops effectively in several services. This paper presents a transceiver system based on PIC microcontroller. It also presents software designs to transmit and receive data through the virtual channel. The system is designed to study the effects of baud rate variations between transmitter and receiver for noise and noiseless AWGN channel. The system has been simulated by Proteus simulator version 8.1, and then tested successfully at baud rates (2400, 4800, 9600, and 19200) bps. Simulation results show that the error rate has zero values at the desired baud rate value, and also, at
      the adjacent values. Thus, the zero level of error rate is increased by increasing baud rate values, which fixed by the transmitter and vice versa.

           outage probability analysis

    • Authors: Van-Duc Phan; Duy-Hung Ha, Minh Tran, Tran Thanh Trang, Thanh-Long Nguyen
      Abstract: Nowadays, many research papers focus on the WPCN problem and how to improve its efficiency. In this research, we propose and investigate Hybrid Decode-Amplify and Forward Protocol (HDAF) of the Full-Duplex (FD) Energy Harvesting (EH) Relaying Network with the Time Switching (TS) protocol. In the beginning stage, we present the HDAF mode, which can be work like a Decode-and-Amplify (DF) or Amplify-and-Forward (AF) modes based on the best of its performance in the FD EH relaying network. Furthermore, the closed-form expression of the outage probability (OT) is analyzed and derived in connection with the primary system parameters. Besides, the comparison of the system performance in the AF, DF, and HDAF is proposed and investigated. Finally, all the results are convinced by the Monte Carlo simulation for all cases.

  • A wireless precoding technique for millimetre-wave MIMO system based on

    • Authors: Rounakul Islam Boby; Khaizuran Abdullah, A. Z. Jusoh, Nagma Parveen, A. L. Asnawi
      Abstract: A communication method is proposed using Minimum Mean Square Error (MMSE) precoding and Successive Interference Cancellation (SIC) technique for millimetre-wave multiple-input multiple-output (mm-Wave MIMO) based wireless communication system. The mm-Wave MIMO technology for wireless communication system is the base potential technology for its high data transfer rate followed by data instruction and low power consumption compared to Long-Term Evolution (LTE). The mm-Wave system is already available in indoor hotspot and Wi-Fi backhaul for its high bandwidth availability and potential lead to rate of numerous Gbps/user. But, in mobile wireless communication system this technique is lagging because the channel faces relative orthogonal coordination and multiple node detection problems while rapid movement of nodes (transmitter and receiver) occur. To improve the conventional mm-wave MIMO nodal detection and coordination performance, the system processes data using symbolized error vector technique for linearization. Then the MMSE precoding detection technique improves the link strength by constantly fitting the channel coefficients based on number of independent service antennas (M), Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR), Channel Matrix (CM) and mean square errors (MSE). To maintain sequentially encoded user data connectivity and to overcome data loss, SIC method is used in combination with MMSE. MATLAB was used to validate the proposed system performance.

  • Modified RSA-based algorithm: a double secure approach

    • Authors: Israa Al_Barazanchi; Shihab A. Shawkat, Moayed H. Hameed, Khalid Saeed Lateef Al-badri
      Abstract: Security algorithms like RSA are becoming increasingly important for communications to provide companies, organizations, and users around the world, secure applications who rely heavily on them in their daily work. Security algorithms use different acquaintances among companies which might belong to various countries or even cities. Such data should essentially be encrypted to make sure that there is security in transportation. Thus, the current research paper leads to the novel system of security for the safe transfer of data. This paper examines the general principles of encryption and focuses on the development of RSA and the complexity of the encryption key so that it becomes more secure in the applications used. In this project, we will work on the RSA algorithm by adding some complexity to the 3keys (3k). This addition will increase the security and complexity of the algorithm's speed while maintaining encryption and decryption time. The paper also presents an approach by means of public key encryption to enhance cryptographic security. Moreover, double security is provided by the algorithm of RSA. This novel RSA algorithm was investigated in MATLAB. Numerical results for the various parameters such as Mean Square Error (MSE), correlation and Bit Error Ratio (BER) were implemented for the encryption of the message. The experimental results demonstrated that the proposed algorithm for 3 keys has small error rate in the retrieval of the encoded text.

      Abstract: The ECG data needs large memory storage device due to continuous heart rate logs and vital parameter storage. Thus, efficient compression schemes are applied to it before sending it to the telemedicine center for monitoring and analysis. Proper compression mechanisms can not only improve the storage efficiency but also help in faster porting of data from one device to another due to its compact size. Also, the collected ECG signals are processed through various filtering techniques to remove unnecessary noise and then compressed. In our scheme, we propose use of buffer blocks, which is quite novel in this field. Usage of highly efficient methods for peak detection, noise removal, compression and encryption enable seamless and secure transmission of ECG signal from sensor to the monitor. This work further makes use of AES 256 CBC mode, which is barely used in embedded devices, proves to be very strong and efficient in ciphering of the information. The PRD outcome of proposed work comes as 0.41% and CR as 0.35%, which is quite better than existing schemes. Experimental results prove the efficiency of proposed schemes on five distinct signal records from MIT-BIH arrhythmia datasets.

    • Authors: Onno W. Purbo; Gildas Deograt, Rolof Satriyanto, Abraham Ferdinand, Pamadi Gesang, Rendra Kesuma, Kalpin Erlangga Silaen
      Abstract: This paper reports on the highly secured information security architecture used by the KawalPilpres 2019 to escort Voting Commission (KPU) data entry. For the first time, a voting escort implements ISO 27001 compliance information security. As of 15 May 2019, 9550 volunteers reported 482,602 voting data of 336,445 voting booths, both in the country and overseas, through the micro-apps KawalPilpres2019. PeSanKita is used as a secure communication channel and to run micro-apps KawalPilpres2019. Double Ratchet Algorithm secures the channel. Different from other voting escort initiatives, KawalPilpres2019 uses (1) primarily C1 Plano photo, (2) no upload limit per voting booth, (3) no web upload, rather via PeSanKita Secured Platform. Behind the scenes, the verification process is done twice before displaying data to the publicly accessible monitoring web. The result is a robust voting escort system, difficult to hack and guarantee data integrity. Guaranteed security, availability, and data integrity are the main requirements for future eVoting systems.

    • Authors: Ahmed M. Dinar; AS Mohd Zain, F. Salehuddin, M.K. Abdulhameed, Mowafak K. Mohsen, Mothana L. Attiah
      Abstract: Utilizing Gouy-Chapman-Stern model can improve ISFET sensitivity and stability using Stern layer in direct contact with electrolyte in ISFET sensing window. However, this model remains a challenge in mathematical way, unless it’s re-applied using accurate simulation approaches. Here, we developed an approach using a commercial Silvaco TCAD to re-apply Gouy-Chapman-Stern model as ISFET sensing membrane to investigate its impact on sensitivity and stability of conventional ISFET. Sio2 material and high-k Ta2O5 material have been examined based on Gouy-Chapman and Gouy-Chapman-Stern models. Results shows that the ISFET sensitivity of SiO2 sensing membrane is improved from ~38 mV/pH to ~51 mV/pH and the VTH shift stability is also improved. Additionally, the results indicate that the sensitivity of Ta2O5 is 59.03 mV/pH that hit the Nearnst Limit 59.3 mV/pH and achieves good agreements with mathematical model and previous experimental results. In conclusion, this investigation introduces a real validation of previous mathematical models using commercial TCAD approach rather than expensive fabrication that paves the way for further analysis and optimization.

  • Design of a CMOS-based microwave active channelized bandpass filter

    • Authors: Jarjar Mariem; El Ouazzani Nabih
      Abstract: A two-branch microwave active bandpass filter is designed through the channelized filtering technique as well as the transversal concept. Both the main and the auxiliary branches, connected without power dividers/combiners, rely on C-coupled active third order Chebyshev bandpass filters. A lumped element signal delay circuit is also introduced in the main channel. Active inductors based on the gyrator-C topology, are involved in the Chebyshev filters’ structure. CMOS-based Operational Transconductor Amplifier (OTA) circuits are the building blocks of these inductors. The proposed active transversal channelized filter produces an elliptic narrow band response, centered at 1.13 GHz. Simulation results, obtained by means of the PSPICE code according to the 0.18 μm TSMC MOS technology, indicate excellent performances illustrating good impedance matching, low insertion losses and high selectivity. Finally, the noise analysis shows that the filter has a low noise figure in the bandwidth.

  • Characterization of silicon nanowire transistor

    • Authors: Hani Taha Al Ariqi; Waheb A. Jabbar, Yasir Hashim, Hadi Bin Manap
      Abstract: This paper analyses the temperature sensitivity of Silicon Nanowire Transistor (SiNWT) depends on the diameter ( of channel. In addition, it also investigates the possibility of utilizing SiNWT as a Nano- temperature sensor. The MuGFET simulation tool has been utilized to conduct a comprehensive simulation to evaluate both electrical and temperature characteristics of SiNWT. Current-voltage characteristics with different values of temperature and with a varying diameter of the Nano wire channel ( = 80, 40, 20 and 10 nm), were simulated. Diode operating mode connection of the transistor is suggested for measuring the temperature sensitivity of SiNWT. As simulation results demonstrated, the best temperature sensitivity was occurred at lower temperature with increasing the channel diameter. We also illustrate the impact of varying temperature and channel diameter on electrical characteristics of SiNWT including, Subthreshold Swing (SS), Threshold voltage (, and Drain-induced barrier lowering (DIBL), which were proportionally increased with the operating temperature.

  • Performance analysis of high-k materials as stern layer in ion-sensitive
           field effect transistor using commercial TCAD

    • Authors: Ahmed M. Dinar; AS Mohd Zain, F. Salehuddin, Mowafak K. Mohsen, Mothana L. Attiah, M. K. Abdulhameed
      Abstract: High-k materials as a STERN Layer for Ion-Sensitive-Field-Effect-Transistor (ISFET) have improved ISFET sensitivity and stability. These materials decrease leakage current and increase capacitance of the ISFET gate toward highest current sensitivity. So far, many high-k materials have been utilized for ISFET, yet they were examined individually, or using numerical solutions rather than using integrated TCAD environment. Exploiting TCAD environment leads to extract ISFET equivalent circuit parameters and performs full analysis for both device and circuit. In this study we introduce a comprehensive investigation of different high-k material, Tio2, Ta2O5, ZrO2, Al2O3, HfO2 and Si3N4 as well as normal silicon dioxide and their effects on ISFET sensitivity and stability. This was implemented by developing commercial Silvaco TCAD rather than expensive real fabrication. The results confirm that employing high-k materials in ISFET outperform normal silicon dioxide in terms of sensitivity and stability. Further analysis revealed that Titanium dioxide showed the highest sensitivity followed by two groups HfO2, Ta2O5 and ZrO2, Al2O3 respectively. Another notable exception of Si3N4 that is less than other materials, but still have higher sensitivity than normal silicon dioxide. We believe that this study opens new directions for further analysis and optimization prior to the real cost-ineffective fabrication.

      Abstract: The linear optical features such as (transmittance T, absorbance A, the effective length 𝐿𝑒𝑓𝑓, absorption coefficient 𝛼 and refractive index 𝑛 ) for the thin films samples of (3x10-3 mol/l of (IR5) laser dye, 0.02 gm of (CdS) nanoparticles and 0.04 gm of pp polymer) had been studied at different values of film thickness in one time and at different number of Yb:GdVO4 laser pulses. The non-linear optical features in terms of transmittance difference Δ𝑇𝑝−𝑣, non-linear refractive index 𝑛2, non–linear phase shift Δ𝛷𝑜 non-linear absorption coefficient 𝛽 and minimum normalized transmittance 𝑇(𝑍) have been computed in relation to obtained normalized transmittance data from setup of Z-scan with open and closed apertures, calculated for (3x10-3 mol/l of (IR5) laser dye, 0.02 gm of (CdSe) nanoparticles and 0.04 gm of (pp) polymer) thin films at different values of film thickness at in one time and at different Yb:GdVO4 laser pulses. Thick films causes in deleting the non-linear effects generated by different layers. The (CdSe) nanoparticles leads to an absorption shifting of the wavelengths to lengthier wavelengths of red shift. So, this can be used in selecting the nanoparticles and medium with applicable exciting wavelengths. The film thickness and the laser pulses have the main effects in consolidating the Non-linear optical features.

  • Application of triple-layer remote phosphor configuration results in the
           color quality and luminous efficiency enhancement of WLEDs

    • Authors: Thuc Minh Bui; Phan Xuan Le, Dinh Hoang Bach, Nguyen Doan Quoc Anh
      Abstract: This study proposed the triple-layer remote phosphor (TRP) structure to enhance the color quality and the emitted luminous flux of white LEDs (WLEDs). The TRP structure consists of three different phosphor layers that are arranged as follows: the yellow YAG:Ce3+ phosphor at the bottom, the red phosphor layer CaMgSi2O6:Eu2+,Mn2+ at the top and the green Ba2Li2Si2O7:Sn2+,Mn2+ phosphor between these two ones. The aim to use the red CaMgSi2O6:Eu2+,Mn2+ phosphor is to control the red light component so that the color rendering index (CRI) could be increased. While the green Ba2Li2Si2O7:Sn2+,Mn2+ phosphor is applied to manage the green light component, leading to the rise in luminous efficacy (LE) of WLEDs. Moreover, when the concentrations of these two phosphors are raised, that of the yellow phosphor YAG:Ce3+ has to be decreased to remain the average correlated color temperatures (ACTTs) in a range from 6000 K to 8500 K. Furthermore, not only the CRI and LE but the color quality scale (CQS) is also analyzed by controlling the two green and red phosphor concentrations. The researched results show that the higher the concentration of CaMgSi2O6:Eu2+,Mn2+, the more enhancements in the CRI will be made. In contrast, when the Ba2Li2Si2O7:Sn2+,Mn2+ concentration increases, the CRI significantly decreases. Meanwhile, CQS is likely to considerably rise in a concentration range from 10% to 14% of CaMgSi2O6:Eu2+,Mn2+, regardless of the presence of Ba2Li2Si2O7:Sn2+,Mn2+ concentration. Especially, in parallel with the improvement of CRI and CQS, the LE could be also increased by more than 40% due to the decline in back-scattering lights and the green lights supplement. From these details, the results of this study are valuable references for manufacturers to achieve the goals of enhancing color quality and luminous efficiency of WLEDs.

    • Authors: Z. Nawawi; M. A. B. Sidik, M. I. Jambak, C. L. G. Pavan Kumar, Aulia Aulia, M. H. Ahmad, A. A. Abd Jamil
      Abstract: This paper aims to clarify the optimum amount of fumed silica (SiO2) nanofiller in resisting the initiation and propagation of electrical treeing in silicone rubber (SiR). Unlike other works, SiR/SiO2 nanocomposites containing seven different weight percentages of SiO2 nanofiller were prepared for this purpose. To achieve the objective, the electrical tree characteristics of the SiR/SiO2 nanocomposites were investigated by comparing the tree initiation voltage, tree breakdown time, tree propagation length and tree growth rate with its equivalent unfilled SiR. Moreover, the structural and morphological analyses were conducted on the SiR/SiO2 nanocomposite samples. The results showed that the SiR, when added with an appropriate amount of SiO2 nanofiller, could result in an improved electrical tree resistance. It implies that the 5 wt% of silica is the optimum amount to achieve the optimal electrical tree resistance such that above 5 wt%, the tree resistance performance has been abruptly reduced, subjected to the agglomeration issue.

    • Authors: Surender Reddy Salkuti
      Abstract: This paper presents a detailed review on performance indicators for smart grid (SG) such as voltage stability enhancement, reliability evaluation, vulnerability assessment, Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) and communication systems. Smart grids reliability assessment can be performed by analytically or by simulation. Analytical method utilizes the load point assessment techniques, whereas the simulation technique uses the Monte Carlo simulation (MCS) technique. The reliability index evaluations will consider the presence or absence of energy storage elements using the simulation technologies such as MCS, and the analytical methods such as systems average interruption frequency index (SAIFI), and other load point indices. This paper also presents the difference between SCADA and substation automation, and the fact that substation automation, though it uses the basic concepts of SCADA, is far more advanced in nature.

  • The usage of dual-layer remote phosphor configurations in enhancing color
           quality and luminous flux of WLEDs

    • Authors: Thuc Minh Bui; Phan Xuan Le, Dinh Hoang Bach, Nguyen Doan Quoc Anh
      Abstract: Among conformal phosphor structure, in-cup phosphor structure, and remote phosphor structure, while in term of attaining the highest luminous flux, remote phosphor structure is the most ideal one, it seems to be that this structure results in the lowest-quality of color. Therefore, it is necessary in conducting experiments to surmount this disadvantage and make a possibility in enhancing the color quality of WLEDs with remote phosphor structure. In this research, with the ability of advancing the color rendering index (CRI) and color quality (CQS) for WLEDs, a dual-layer remote phosphor structure was considered as a suggestion. The experiments in this study used three kinds of WLEDs with the similar structures but different color temperatures varying at 5600 K, 7000 K, and 8500 K. The objectives of this paper is proposing a solution to obtain the highest color quality by placing a yellow-green emitting SrBaSiO4:Eu2+ phosphor layer or a red-emitting SrwFxByOz:Eu2+,Sm2+ phosphor layer on the YAG:Ce3+ phosphor layer and then choosing the most appropriate value of SrwFxByOz:Eu2+,Sm2+ concentration. The experimental results which are satisfied expectations of researchers indicated that SrwFxByOz:Eu2+,Sm2+ has enforced its role in managing to raise the CRI and CQS. Particularly, the greater concentration of SrwFxByOz:Eu2+,Sm2+ leads to the higher the CRI and CQS, since the red light component in WLEDs increased. Besides, the quality of luminous flux is in a tight connection with the SrBaSiO4:Eu2+ phosphor layer. Whereas, according to the Mie scattering theory and the Lambert-Beer law, if the concentration of SrwFxByOz:Eu2+,Sm2+ and SrBaSiO4:Eu2+ becomes redundant, the luminous flux and color quality will take a deep dive. Briefly, the results from this article has largely contributed to fabricating high-quality WLEDs.

  • Benefits of triple-layer remote phosphor structure in improving color
           quality and luminous flux of white LED

    • Authors: Thuc Minh Bui; Phan Xuan Le, DinhHoang Bach, Nguyen Doan Quoc Anh
      Abstract: Remote phosphor structure has higher luminous efficiency comparing to that of both conformal phosphor and in-cup phosphor structures. However, it is hard to control the color quality of remote phosphor structure, and this issue has become one of the most researchable objectives to many researchers in recent years. Up to now, there are two remote phosphor structures applied to improve the color quality, including dual-layer phosphor configuration and triple-layer phosphor configuration. The purpose of this research is to select one of those configurations to have multi-chip white LEDs (WLEDs) achieved the highest color rendering index (CRI), color quality scale (CQS), luminous efficacy (LE), and color uniformity. In this research, WLEDs with two correlated color temperatures (CCT) of 6600K and 7700K were applied. The obtained results showed that triple-layer phosphor configuration is more outstanding in CRI, CQS, and LE. Moreover, the color deviation has been significantly reduced, which means the color uniformity has been enhanced with the application of triple-layer phosphor configuration. These results can be proven by scattering properties of phosphor layers based on Mie theory. Thus, the researched results have become a reliable and valuable reference for manufacturing higher-quality WLEDs.

    • Authors: Bilal Charmouti; Ahmad Kadri Junoh, Mohd Yusoff Mashor, Najah Ghazali, Mahyun Ab Wahab, Wan Zuki Azman Wan Muhamad, Abdesselam Beroual
      Abstract: Removing noise from the image by retaining the details and features of this treated image remains a standing challenge for the researchers in this field. Therefore, this study is carried out to propose and implement a new denoising technique for removing impulse noise from the digital image, using a new way. This technique permits the narrowing of the gap between the original and the restored images, visually and quantitatively by adopting the mathematical concept ''arithmetic progression''. Through this paper, this concept is integrated into the image denoising, due to its ability in modelling the variation of pixels’ intensity in the image. The principle of the proposed denoising technique relies on the precision, where it keeps the uncorrupted pixels by using effective noise detection and converts the corrupted pixels by replacing them with other closest pixels from the original image at lower cost and with more simplicity.

    • Authors: Bilal Charmouti; Ahmad Kadri Junoh, Mohd Yusoff Mashor, Najah Ghazali, Mahyun Ab Wahab, Wan Zuki Azman Wan Muhamad, Abdesselam Beroual
      Abstract: Digital image is considered as a powerful tool to carry and transmit information between people. Thus, it attracts the attention of large number of researchers, among them those interested in preserving the image features from any factors that may reduce the image quality. One of these factors is the noise which affects the visual aspect of the image and makes others image processing more difficult. Thus far, solving this noise problem remains a challenge for the researchers in this field. A lot of image denoising techniques have been introduced in order to remove the noise by taking care of the image features; in other words, getting the best similarity to the original image from the noisy one. However, the findings are still inconclusive. Beside the enormous amount of researches and studies which adopt several mathematical concepts (statistics, probabilities, modeling, PDEs, wavelet, fuzzy logic, etc.), there is also the scarcity of review papers which carry an important role in the development and progress of research. Thus, this review paper intorduce an overview of the different fundamental approaches that yield the several image-denoising techniques, presented with a new classification. Furthermore, the paper presents the different evaluation tools needed on the comparison between these techniques in order to facilitate the processing of this noise problem, among a great diversity of techniques and concepts.

      Abstract: Encryption systems have been developed for image viewing applications using the Hill Cipher algorithm. This study aims to evaluate the image encryption quality of the Hill Cipher algorithm. Several traditional metrics are used to evaluate the quality of the encryption scheme. Three of such metrics have been selected for this study. These include, the Colour Histogram, the Maximum Deviation (comparing the original image) and the Entropy Analysis of the encrypted image. Encryption quality results from all three schemes using a variety of images show that a plain Hill Cipher approach gives a good result for all kinds of images but is more suited for colour dense images.

  • Recognition system for facial expression by processing images with deep
           learning neural network

    • Authors: Holman Montiel Ariza; Henry Hernández Martínez, Luz Andrea Gaviria Roa
      Abstract: The recognition systems of patterns in images are mechanisms that filter the information that provides an image to highlight the area of interest for the user. Usually, these mechanisms are based on mathematical transformations that allow the processor to perform interpretations based on the geometry or shape of the image. However, the strategies that implement mathematical transformations are limited, since the effectiveness of these techniques is reduced by changing the morphology or resolution of the image. This paper presents a partial solution to this limitation with a digital image processing technique based on a deep learning neural network (DNN). This technique incorporates a mechanism that allows the DNN to determine the facial expression of a person, based on the segmented information of the image of their face. By segmenting the image and processing its characteristics in parallel, the proposed technique increases the effectiveness of recognizing facial gestures in different images even when modifying their characteristics.

  • Embedded system for upper-limb exoskeleton based on electromyography

    • Authors: Triwiyanto Triwiyanto; I Putu Alit Pawana, Bambang Guruh Irianto, Tri Bowo Indrato, I Dewa Gede Hari Wisana
      Abstract: A major problem in an exoskeleton based on electromyography (EMG) control with pattern recognition-based is the need for more time to train and to calibrate the system in order able to adapt for different subjects and variable. Unfortunately, the implementation of the joint prediction on an embedded system for the exoskeleton based on the EMG control with non-pattern recognition-based is very rare. Therefore, this study presents an implementation of elbow-joint angle prediction on an embedded system to control an upper limb exoskeleton based on the EMG signal. The architecture of the system consisted of a bio-amplifier, an embedded ARMSTM32F429 microcontroller, and an exoskeleton unit driven by a servo motor. The elbow joint angle was predicted based on the EMG signal that is generated from biceps. The predicted angle was obtained by extracting the EMG signal using a zero-crossing feature and filtering the EMG feature using a Butterworth low pass filter. This study found that the range of root mean square error and correlation coefficients are 8°-16° and 0.94-0.99, respectively which suggest that the predicted angle is close to the desired angle and there is a high relationship between the predicted angle and the desired angle.

      Abstract: This paper presents a simple technique for performing Batik image retrieval using the Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) approach. Two CNN models, i.e. supervised and unsupervised learning approach, are considered to perform end-to-end feature extraction in order to describe the content of Batik image. The distance metrics measure the similarity between the query and target images in database based on the feature generated from CNN architecture. As reported in the experimental section, the proposed supervised CNN model achieves better performance compared to unsupervised CNN in the Batik image retrieval system. In addition, image feature composed from the proposed CNN model yields better performance compared to that of the handcrafted feature descriptor. Yet, it demonstrates the superiority performance of deep learning-based approach in the Batik image retrieval system.

  • A fuzzy micro-climate controller for small indoor aeroponics systems

    • Authors: Bambang Dwi Argo; Yusuf Hendrawan, Ubaidillah Ubaidillah
      Abstract: The Indonesian agricultural sector faces challenges producing affordably priced food using sustainable practices. A soilless cultural practice, such as indoor aeroponics, is a compelling alternative to conventional agriculture. The objective of the present study was to develop a system for micro-climate management in a pilot-scale indoor aeroponics system. For this purpose, three fuzzy logic controllers were developed and evaluated to maintain plant chamber parameters (temperature, relative humidity, and light intensity) at desired set points controlled by embedded system controls designed using BASCOM-AVR software. The results showed that the fuzzy controllers provided excellent responses and experienced relatively low errors in all controlled parameters. All parameters changes followed the set point very smoothly and responded accordingly.The averaged percent of working times in which temperature, relative humidity, and light intensity were maintained within less than ±1°C, ±5%, and ±30 lux from the set points were found to be 88.43%, 95.91%, and 85.51%, respectively.

  • Hierarchical robust fuzzy sliding mode control for a class of simo
           under-actuated systems with mismatched uncertainties

    • Authors: Duc Ha Vu; Shoudao Huang, Thi Diep Tran
      Abstract: The development of the algorithms for single input multi output (SIMO) under-actuated systems with mismatched uncertainties is important. Hierarchical sliding-mode controller (HSMC) has been successfully employed to control SIMO under-actuated systems with mismatched uncertainties in a hierarchical manner with the use of sliding mode control. However, in such a control scheme, the chattering phenomenon is its main disadvantage. To overcome the above disadvantage, in this paper, a new compound control scheme is proposed for SIMO under-actuated based on HSMC and fuzzy logic control (FLC). By using the HSMC approach, a sliding control law is derived so as to guarantee the stability and robustness under various environments. The FLC as the second controller completely removes the chattering signal caused by the sign function in the sliding control law. The results are verified through theoretical proof and simulation software of MATLAB through two systems Pendubot and series double inverted pendulum.

  • Modified CiteScore metric for reducing the effect of self-citations

    • Authors: Hilary I Okagbue; Sheila A. Bishop, Pelumi E. Oguntunde, Patience I. Adamu, Abiodun A. Opanuga, Elvir M. Akhmetshin
      Abstract: Elsevier B.V. launched a scholarly metric called CiteScore (CS) on December 8, 2016. Up till then, the journal impact factor (JIF) owned by Clarivate Analytics (Thomson Reuters) was the only trusted metric for journal evaluation. As noted by Teixeira da Silva & Memon (2017), CS offers some observed advantages over JIF. The potentials of CiteScore as a viable metric are still emerging. The paper briefly introduces a variant of the CiteScore that can be used in quantifying the impact of researchers and their institutions. The ultimate aim is to reduce the numerical effect of self-citations (SC) in academic publishing. The reduction is designed to discourage SC but not diminishing it. The reasons for the adopted methodology are discussed extensively. The proposed modified CiteScore metric is simple, transparent and constructed to ensure integrity in academic publication. The result showed that the proposed modified CiteScore is a better option than the traditional CiteScore and hence, can be applied in impact determination, the ranking of authors and their institutions, and evaluation of scientists for a grant award. The approach used in this paper is entirely new in two ways; first, a metric similar to journal ranking is proposed for ranking authors and their institutions and secondly, disproportionate scores are awarded to different sources of citations to reduce perceived dishonesty in academic publications. In conclusion, this research is one of very few to report the effect of SC on CiteScore. Hitherto, the effect of SC has always been on the journal impact factor (IF).

           panel antennas

    • Authors: Teddy Purnamirza; Muhammad Ralibi, Imran M. Bin Ibrahim, Fitri Amillia, Depriwana Rahmi, Sutoyo Sutoyo
      Abstract: RLSA antennas were suggested by several researches as Wi-Fi antennas in addition to panel antennas. Therefore, this paper researched the possibility of this suggestion. We used the size of an available in market 16 dBi panel antenna (225 mm2) as the size for our developed RLSA antenna. Based on this size, we developed 60 RLSA models using extreme beamsquint technique and simulated them.  We then chose a best model with a best performance. The best model was then fabricated and measured. The simulation and measurement results show that the developed RLSA antenna has better performance compared to the 16 dBi panel antenna in term of gain (0.25 dB higher) and bandwidth (570 MHz wider). The RLSA antenna also tested as antenna for a Wi-Fi device and it showed good performance.

  • Regenerating face images from multi-spectral palm images using multiple
           fusion methods

    • Authors: Raid Rafi Al-Nima; Moatasem Yaseen Al-Ridha, Farqad Hamid Abdulraheem
      Abstract: This paper established a relationship between multi-spectral palm images and a face image based on multiple fusion methods. The first fusion method to be considered is a feature extraction between different multi-spectral palm images, where multi-spectral CASIA database was used. The second fusion method to be considered is a score fusion between two parts of an output face image. Our method suggests that both right and left hands are used, and that each hand aims to produce a significant part of a face image by using a Multi-Layer Perceptron (MLP) network. This will lead to the second fusion part to reconstruct the full-face image, in order to examine its appearance. This topology provided interesting results of Equal Error Rate (EER) equal to 1.99%.

  • Classifying Confidential Data using SVM for Efficient Cloud Query

    • Authors: Huda Kadhim Tayyeh; Ahmed Sabah Al-Jumaili
      Abstract: Nowadays, organizations are widely using a cloud database engine from the cloud service providers. Privacy still is the main concern for these organizations in which every organization is strictly looking forward more secure and private environment for their own data. For this purpose, several studies have proposed different types of encryption methods in order to protect the data over the cloud. However, the daily transactions represented by queries for such databases makes the encryption is inefficient solution. Therefore, recent studies have presented a mechanism for classifying the data prior to migrate into the cloud. This would reduce the need of encryption which enhance the efficiency. Yet, most of the classification methods used in the literature were based on string-based matching approach. Such approach suffers of the exact match of terms where the partial matching would not be considered. This paper aims to take the advantage of N-gram representation along with Support Vector Machine classification. A real-time data will used in the experiment. In addition, the N-gram approach will be used to represent the data. After conducting the classification, the Advanced Encryption Standard algorithm will be used to encrypt the confidential data. Results showed that the proposed method has outperformed the baseline encryption method. This emphasizes the usefulness of using the machine learning techniques for the process of classifying the data based on confidentiality.

  • A review on software defined network security risks and challenges

    • Authors: Tsehay Admassu Assegie; Pramod Sekharan Nair
      Abstract: Software defined network is an emerging networking architecture that separates the traditional integrated control logic and data forwarding functionality into different planes, namely the control plane and data forwarding plane. The data plane does and end to end data delivery. And the control plane does the actual network traffic forwarding and routing between different network segments. In software defined network the networking infrastructure layer where the entire networking device, such as switches and routers reside is connected with the separate controller layer with the help of standard called OpenFlow protocol. It is a standard protocol that allows different vendor devices like juniper switches, cisco switches and huawei switches to be connected to the controller. The centralization of the SDN controller made the network more flexible, manageable and dynamic, such as provisioning of bandwidth, dynamic scale out and scale in compared to the traditional communication network, however the centralized SDN controller is more vulnerable to security risk factors such as DDOS and flow rule poisoning attack. In this paper we will explore the architectures and principles of software defined network and security risks with the centralized SDN controller and possible ways to mitigate these risks.

    • Authors: Mothana L. Attiah; A. A. Md Isa, Zahriladha Zakaria, Ahmed M. Dinar, M . K. Abdulhameed, Mowafak K. Mohsen
      Abstract: Spectrum sharing (SS) is a promising solution to enhance spectrum utilization in future cellular systems. Reducing the energy consumption in cellular networks has recently earned tremendous attention from diverse stakeholders (i.e., vendors, mobile network operators (MNOs), and government) to decrease the CO2 emissions and thus introducing an environment-friendly wireless communication. Therefore, in this paper, joint energy-efficient user association (UA) mechanism and fully hybrid spectrum sharing (EE-FHSS) approach is proposed considering the quality of experience QoE (i.e., data rate) as the main constraint. In this approach, the spectrum available in the high and low frequencies (28 and 73 GHz) is sliced into three portions (licensed, semi-shared, and fully-shared) aims to serve the users (UEs) that belong to four operators in an integrated and hybrid manner. The performance of the proposed QoE-Based EE UA-FHSS is compared with the well-known maximum signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (max-SINR UA-FHSS). Numerical results show that remarkable enhancement in terms of EE for the four participating operators can be achieved while maintaining a high degree of QoE to the UEs.

    • Authors: Agus Zainal Arifin; Evan Tanuwijaya, Baskoro Nugroho, Arif Mudi Priyatno, Rarasmaya Indraswari, Eha Renwi Astuti, Dini Adni Navastara
      Abstract: Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) is a radiographic technique that has been commonly used to help doctors provide more detailed information for further examination. CBCT tooth segmentation has many challenges such as low contrast, boundaries of blurred teeth and irregular contours of the teeth. In addition, because the CBCT results produce a lot of slices, where each slice has information that is related and the topology of each slice can differ from one another, so the marking on each slice becomes exhaustive and inefficient, due to information similarities on each slice. In this study, we propose an automatic image slice marking propagation on segmentation of dental CBCT. Marker from the result of the first slice segmentation will be use as the information for the next slices propagately. This study was successful in segmenting using the proposed marking method with an error value of Misclassification Error (ME) and Relative Foreground Area Error (RAE) of 0.112 and 0.478, respectively.

  • A photovoltaic integrated unified power quality conditioner with a
           27-level inverter

    • Authors: Kamel Saleh; Nael Hantouli
      Abstract: Abstract This paper presents a Unified Power Quality Conditioner (UPQC) with a 27- level inverter based on an asymmetric H-bridge topology. Each phase of the inverter is composed of three H-bridges, supplied by three DC sources scaled in the power of three. The output of the multilevel inverter is connected directly to the point of common coupling (PCC) without the need to a transformer or a filter. The calculation of the Shunt Active Power filter (SAPF) compensation current is based on the generalized theory of synchronous frame (d-q theory) while the calculation of a series active filter voltage is based on Instantaneous Reactive Power (p-q theory). The control of the SAPF is achieved by using a closed loop vector control followed by a new multilevel modulation technique. In addition to the capability of harmonic elimination of both current and voltage drawn from the source, the UPQC can produce real and reactive power to feed the loads during prolonged voltage outages or source shortage.  The injection of real and reactive power depends on the state of charge (SOC) of batteries, the frequency of the system, real and reactive power of the load, and power factor at the point of PCC. The proposed UPQC strategy is simulated in MATLAB SIMULINK and the results has shown a significant improved in Total Harmonics Distortion (THD) of both the voltage and currents.

  • PAPR analysis of OFDM system using AI based multiple signal representation

    • Authors: Jyoti Shukla; Alok Joshi, Rajesh Tyagi
      Abstract: OFDM (orthogonal frequency division multiplexing) is widely used in 4th generation applications owing to its robustness in fading environments. The major issues with OFDM systems is the high PAPR (peak-to-average power ratio) of the transmitted signals, it leads to in and out of band distortion. SLM (selective mapping) and PTS (partial transmit sequence) are two key methods for PAPR reduction. Both the methods require exhaustive searching of phase factors to optimize the PAPR, these searches lead to high computational complexity. This paper discusses using optimization based PAPR reduction methods which an be used with PTS for the reduction of computational complexity and search space. In this paper we have analyzed PTS and SLM with particle swarm optimization (PSO), Artificial Bee Colony (ABC) and differential evolution (DE). PAPR and BER (bit error rate) comparison is done for both the cases.
