    The aim of the present paper is to propose an agricultural environment monitoring server system utilizing a low-cost Wireless Sensor Network (WSN). Several sensor nodes are scattered in fields several kilometres in size, ...
  • 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 ...
  • Ballistocardiography and Seismocardiography: A Review of Recent Advances 

    Inan, Omer T; Migeotte, Pierre-François; Park, Kwang-Suk; Etemadi, Mozziyar; Tavakolian, Kouhyar; Casanella Alonso, Ramón; Zanetti, John; Tank, Jens; Funtova, Irina; Prisk, G. Kim; Di Rienzo, Marco (2015-07-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    In the past decade, there has been a resurgence in the field of unobtrusive cardiomechanical assessment, through advancing methods for measuring and interpreting ballistocardiogram (BCG) and seismocardiogram (SCG) signals. ...
  • Effects of stray capacitance to ground in bipolar water impedance measurements based on capacitive electrodes 

    Pallàs Areny, Ramon; Aliau Bonet, Carles (2015)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Liquid impedance measurements based on capacitive (or contactless) electrodes Overcome electrode polarization problems but are affected by stray capacitance from the material being measured to ground, the same as measurements ...
  • Charge-transfer-based signal interface for differential capacitive sensors 

    Gaitán Pitre, Jorge Elicer; Pallàs Areny, Ramon (2015)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    We propose a circuit to directly connect a differential capacitive sensor to a microcontroller unit (MCU), which is based on the charge-transfer method and does not need any calibration component. The performance has been ...
