  • Short-term energy storage for power quality improvement in weak MV grids with distributed renewable generation 

    Díaz González, Francisco; del Rosario Calaf, Gerard; Girbau Llistuella, Francesc; Gomis Bellmunt, Oriol (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2016)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    The intermittent and stochastic nature of renewable energy sources impose several challenges for the operation of electrical networks, and affect power quality levels as well. This paper addresses one of the issues associated ...
  • Long-term analysis of gauge-adjusted radar rainfall accumulations at European scale 

    Park, Shinju; Berenguer Ferrer, Marc; Sempere Torres, Daniel (Elsevier, 2019-06)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Monitoring continental precipitation over Europe with high resolution (2 km, 15 min) has been possible since the operational production of the OPERA composites from the European weather radar networks. The OPERA data are ...
  • Anticipating cascading effects of extreme precipitation with pathway schemes: three case studies from Europe 

    Schauwecker, Simone; Gascón, Estíbaliz; Park, Shinju; Sempere Torres, Daniel (Elsevier, 2019-06)
    Article
    Open Access
    Extreme precipitation events with high local precipitation intensities, heavy snowfall or extensive freezing rain can have devastating impacts on society and economy. Not only is the quantitative forecast of such events ...

    The anticipation of flash flood events is crucial to issue warnings to mitigate their impact. This work presents a comparison of two early warning systems for real-time flash flood hazard forecasting at regional scale. The ...
  • Selective synthesis of 4-hydroxyisophorone and 4-ketoisophorone by fungal peroxygenases 

    Aranda, Carmen; Municoy, Martí; Guallar, Victor; Kiebist, Jan; Scheibner, Katrin; Ullrich, René; del Río, José C.; Hofrichter, Martin; Martinez, Angel T.; Gutierrez, Ana (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2019-02-26)
    Article
    Open Access
    The recently discovered unspecific peroxygenases (UPOs) from the ascomycetes Chaetomium globosum and Humicola insolens were capable of selectively hydroxylating isophorone to 4-hydroxyisophorone (4HIP) and 4-ketoisophorone ...
  • TCP Proactive Congestion Control for East–West Trffic: the Marking Threshold 

    Fischer e Silva, Renan; Carpenter, Paul M. (2019)
    Working paper
    Open Access
    Various extensions of TCP/IP have been proposed to reduce network latency; examples include Explicit Congestion Notification (ECN), Data Center TCP (DCTCP) and several proposals for Active Queue Management (AQM). Combining ...
  • TensorFlow on state-of-the-art HPC clusters: a machine learning use case 

    Ramirez-Gargallo, Guillem; Garcia-Gasulla, Marta; Mantovani, Filippo (2019)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    The recent rapid growth of the data-flow programming paradigm enabled the development of specific architectures, e.g., for machine learning. The most known example is the Tensor Processing Unit (TPU) by Google. Standard ...
