    The level of sedation in patients undergoing medical procedures is decided to assure unconsciousness and prevent pain. The monitors of depth of anesthesia, based on the analysis of the electroencephalogram (EEG), have been ...
  • Comparative study of reactive power control methods for photovoltaic inverters in low-voltage grids 

    Momeneh, Arash; Castilla Fernández, Miguel; Miret Tomàs, Jaume; Martí Colom, Pau; Velasco García, Manel (2016-03-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    The increasing installation of photovoltaic panels in low-voltage grids causes an over voltage problem, especially during high production and low consumption periods. Generally the over voltage problem is overcome by ...
  • On existence and stability of equilibria of linear time-invariant systems With constant power loads 

    Barabanov, Nikita; Ortega, Romeo; Griñó Cubero, Robert; Polyak, Boris (2016-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    The problem of existence and stability of equilibria of linear systems with constant power loads is addressed in this paper. First, we correct an unfortunate mistake in our recent paper [10] pertaining to the sufficiency ...
  • Detecting freezing of gait with a tri-axial accelerometer in Parkinson’s disease patients 

    Ahlrichs, Claas; Samà Monsonís, Albert; Lawo, Michael; Cabestany Moncusí, Joan; Rodríguez Martín, Daniel Manuel; Pérez López, Carlos; Quinlan, Leo R.; ÓLaighin, Gearóid; Counihan, Timothy; Lewy, Hadas; Annicchiarico, Roberta; Bayés, Àngels; Rodríguez Molinero, Alejandro (2015-10-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Freezing of gait (FOG) is a common motor symptom of Parkinson’s disease (PD), which presents itself as an inability to initiate or continue gait. This paper presents a method to monitor FOG episodes based only on acceleration ...
