A Self-Healing system must have the control of at least two devices, one GRID element (to be open) and one TIE element involving two distinct circuits, not necessarily of the same SS (to be closed).
• Extra Undo operation appears after creating Horizontal oriented Choice box or Grid element
This section defines a new Cartesian coordinate system which will be able to reinterpret the coordinates of the transmitter and receiver, and it will facilitate the calculation process of grid element coordinates.
Even FEM programs that use arbitrary grid element sizes require an increase in the number of elements around small structures.
"The concrete effect flooring and the use of steel grates and grid elements in key areas such as elevator and escalator points reinforces the modern and almost mechanical aesthetic, which represents a huge departure from the adjacent mall styling," the firm added.
The robust edge platform leverages Sierra Wireless AirLink[R] cellular gateways and pioneering work by the Duke Energy Emerging Technology Office (ETO) on the Open Field Message Bus (OpenFMB) standard to provide more decision-making capabilities at the edge, interoperability between the various smart grid elements and faster decision making.
If a dynamic mesh has poor robustness, it may result in negative grid elements, thus causing a failure during calculation.
Sensitivity tests for the resolution of the computational grid were conducted by modifying the parameters: 1) types of grid elements (tetrahedral [grid TP] and tetrahedral with prisms [grid TPA] on the surface of the building); 2) the size of the global parameter natural size (coarse grid A: 4; middle grid B: 2 and fine grid C: 0.5); and 3) the size of the grid refining elements of the building's surface (0.30 m; 0.20 and 0.10 m) for each mesh analyzed (A, B and C).
