1. Teleke, Sercan. Control Methods for Energy Storage for Dispatching Intermittent Renewable Energy Sources.

Degree: PhD, Electrical Engineering, 2009, North Carolina State University

Solar, wind and other renewable energy sources are becoming an important part of energy supply to the power grid. Integrating a battery energy storage system (BESS) with a solar photovoltaic (PV) system or a wind farm can make these intermittent renewable energy sources more dispatchable. In this thesis, three different control methods for BESS are proposed for this purpose. For dispatching, the set point for the controllers is determined first using the historical data. Then using this reference, the power and energy ratings required for the BESS is calculated, and the battery operation in terms of charge/discharge duration is characterized. For optimal use of a BESS to minimize the deviations from dispatch set points, three control methods for BESS have been developed. The simulations have shown that the dispatch performance obtained with SOC feedback method is unsatisfactory compared to the other two methods namely optimal control and rule based control. The rule based control, and the optimal control performs very similar since the rule based control corresponds to the closed loop implementation of the optimal control. Moreover, the rule based method has several advantages over the optimal control such as less computation time, closed loop implementation, and no need for development of a mathematical model for BESS. In terms of BESS operation, it is seen that the BESS charge/discharge frequency is relatively high in this application; and hence, new type of batteries with high charge/discharge cycling rates are needed. Moreover, the control methods considered make a compromise in that they didn’t utilize the BESS full capacity in order to extend the lifetime of the BESS, and hence, a large size BESS – about 15%-25% of the solar PV/wind farm capacity – is needed to have an effective hourly dispatch.

2. Mansi, Kate Elizabeth. Reasoning and Geometric Proof in Mathematics Education: A Review of the Literature.

Degree: MS, Mathematics Education, 2003, North Carolina State University

The purpose of this literature review is to examine the role that reasoning and geometric proof play in the teaching and learning of mathematics. Specifically, I explore four questions: 1) What reasoning capabilities do students need to be ready for proof? 2) What evidence is there to show that high school students are not successful with proof and hold misconceptions about the nature of proof? 3) How can teachers' beliefs and understandings contribute to students' proof abilities? 4) What can be done to promote mathematical reasoning and improve students' proof writing skills? Through a comparison of the theories of Piaget and van Hiele, I discuss how students acquire mathematical and geometric reasoning skills and how this relates to their readiness to produce formal proofs. I then discuss research findings, which indicate that students are not typically at a high enough van Hiele level to be successful with proof by the time they get to high school. Further research is presented which examines common geometric and proof misconceptions among students, and how this relates to proof achievement. Teacher proof-conceptions and achievement are also discussed, citing studies with elementary, middle, and high school preservice and inservice teachers, and how this may affect students' proof performance. Finally, I discuss ways in which preservice and inservice teachers can help their students improve their mathematical and geometric reasoning skills, thus furthering their proof comprehension and achievement. Advisors/Committee Members: Dr. Mohan Putcha, Committee Member (advisor), Dr. Hollylynne Stohl, Committee Chair (advisor), Dr. John Kolb, Committee Member (advisor).

3. Dong, Puxuan. Design, Analysis and Realtime Realization of Artificial Neural Network for Control and Classification.

Degree: PhD, Electrical Engineering, 2006, North Carolina State University

Artificial neural networks (ANNs) are parallel architectures for processing information even though they are usually realized on general-purpose digital computers. This research has been focused on the design, analysis and real-time realization of artificial neural networks using programmable analog hardware for control and classification. We have investigated field programmable analog arrays (FPAAs) for realizing artificial neural networks (ANN). Our research results and products include a general theoretical limit on the number of neurons required by an ANN to classify a given number of data points, a design methodology for the efficient use of specific FPAA resources in ANN applications, several multi-chip FPAA implementations of ANNs for classification experiments, several single-chip FPAA implementations of analog PID controllers for an unmanned ground vehicle (UGV), experimental evaluation of FPAA PID controllers with a conventional digital PID controller on a UGV, and finally a single-chip FPAA implementation of a (non-linear) ANN controller for comparison with the previous FPAA PID controller on a UGV. 2 These results are collected as four papers formatted for publication and comprising chapters 3, 4, 5, and 6 of this thesis. The first paper develops our general bound for neural network complexity. The second presents a systematic approach based on the upper bound theory for implementing and simplifying neural network structures in FPAA technology. In the third paper, a FPAA based PID controller was designed and characterized in a path-tracking UGV; some of the results from this report are used as a baseline in the fourth paper. In the fourth paper, a FPAA based ANN controller is designed to control a path-tracking UGV and is investigated analytically and with simulation before its performance was experimentally compared to the previously designed FPAA PID controller regarding speed, stability and robustness. In conclusion, this dissertation focuses on the design, analysis and real-time realization of artificial neural networks. The proposed upper bound for neural network complexity provides guidelines for reducing hardware requirements and applies to any layered ANN approach to classification. It is complemented by the neural network structure simplification method which exploits specific features available in the FPAA technology which we used in our experiments and which we believe possess great potential for future real-time control and classification applications.
