INVESTIGATION OF CHARACTERISTICS AND THERMAL LOADING OF LED BULBS FOR AUTOMOTIVE HEADLIGHTS 

The aim of the study is related to obtain real data for the LEDs’ thermal load and characteristics of several LED lamps types H4 and H7 for automotive headlights with different cooling system. Power consumption, temperature regimes of the LEDs’ operation, lamps’ radiation spectral distribution, and luminous flux of lamps for automobile headlights with active and passive cooling system at different ambient temperatures have been investigated. The obtained data under real conditions of operation

A SOLAR-POWERED WHITE LED-BASED UV-VIS SPECTROPHOTOMETRIC SYSTEM MANAGED BY PC FOR AIR POLLUTION DETECTION IN FARAWAY AND UNFRIENDLY LOCATIONS

This research work regards the design and realization of an absorption spectrophotometer based on a LED light source in place of the usually employed Xenon lamp. The advantage of the use of LED technology resides in several factors such as the reducing of the analyte temperature variations and thus noise generation, which occur if a Xenon light source is used, beside of the high luminous efficiency, reliability, operating duration, lower maintenance and a lower power consumption. This last

Teacher leadership report: How student-led pedagogy in modern learning environments (MLEs) can improve literacy learning

Our teacher leadership story comes from two schools collaborating on a New Zealand Teacher Led Innovation Fund (TLIF) project exploring the effect of student-led learning practices on literacy achievement within modern learning environments (MLEs).  Our rationale is that learning which is individualised for all learners leads to more equitable outcomes for all. It also enables student ownership of learning, which in turn increases success for all learners, measured through improved student

DESIGN OF A WIRELESS CAPACITIVE POWER TRANSFER SYSTEM

This paper presents the design of a capacitive power transfer (CPT) system by using the Class-E amplifier approach. The Class-E amplifier approach is chosen to be adopted since it produces high efficiency as close as to 100%, theoretically. Based on the Class-E approach, a design of wireless power transfer system is used to transfer power to a LED lamp. The system has an output around 4.2 watts at a distance of 2 millimeters which transfer enough output power to light a

A MULTIDIMENSIONAL AND DYNAMISED CLASSIFICATION OF POLISH PROVINCES BASED ON SELECTED FEATURES OF HIGHER EDUCATION IN 2002–2013

For close to two decades after the fall of communism in 1989, Polish higher education enjoyed an unprecedented period of development. Favourable political, economic, social and demographic changes led to a fivefold increase in the number of students and the number of higher educational institutions. The dynamic changes and their effects did not occur uniformly, in either space or time. An attempt is made here to identify and analyse the regional differentiation between Polish provinces in terms

The stimulus for this article was a delayed hemolytic transfusion reaction (DHTR) due to anti-U following open-heart surgery. The initial clinical and serologic findings led us to consider other causes of immune hemolysis which are reviewed in this article.

Classification of artificial light sources and estimation of Color Rendering Index using RGB sensors, K Nearest Neighbor and Radial Basis Function

Three types of artificial light sources work with electricity: incandescent, fluorescent and LED. These sources require characterization processes to allow selecting the most suitable for the application, to evaluate their capacity or more recently to tune and adjust their replicability using control algorithms. Therefore, it has been necessary to develop indices that represent these capabilities. The Color Rendering Index (CRI) is a measure used to characterize the color reproducibility of a

INFLUENCE OF IMPLEMENTATION OF TECHNOLOGICALLY ADVANCED EVACUATION MODELS ON THE PROCESS OF DECREASING THE RISK DURING ACCIDENTS IN AN LNG TERMINAL

Summary. The continuing growth of the LNG (liquid natural gas) industry has led to a rapid increase in the construction of LNG terminals and the need for accurate risk assessment models as accidents involving LNG are potentially hazardous and pose a major threat. One aspect of risk modeling - evacuation of people to the safe zones of an LNG terminal - is a complex problem that has yet to receive sufficient attention. The aim of this paper is to illustrate how the implementation of a

In the study, a novel micro impedance inclinometer is presented, consisting of a glass substrate, Cr electrodes and a mercury pendulum. The output signal of the proposed inclinometer is read from the moving metal pendulum based on an LED array measurement scheme. A mercury pendulum mass is used for the inclinometer. The adhesion between the liquid metal and the substrate surface is reduced by etching or sandblasting the substrate surface. Experimental results show the developed inclinometer has

MICROFLORA AND PARASITOFAUNA OF ALIEN AND INVASIVE TURTLE SPECIES

Invasiveness of alien turtles results from their impact on the functioning of the local ecosystem. It is due to predation on or competing with resident species, but also transfer of new and unknown pathogenic bacteria, viruses, parasites, or fungi. Salmonella is the most often reported microorganism, both in free-living and captive turtles. Zoonotic aspect of Salmonella spp. carriage has led to the definition of RAS (Reptile Associated Salmonellosis) acquired from domestic pet reptiles

Effect of pronase on highincidence blood group antigens and the prevalence of antibodies to pronase-treated erythrocytes

Pronase is a useful and relatively nonspecific protease that cleaves many red blood cell (RBC) membrane proteins that carry blood group antigens. Unexpected findings in tests using pronase-treated RBCs during the investigation of a patient’s blood sample led us to test which high-incidence blood group antigens were sensitive and which were resistant to pronase treatment, and to determine the prevalence of antipronase in the serum of blood donors. Our results show that antigens in the

Previous studies with stored red cells collected into EDTA anticoagulant had shown that commercial polyclonal anti-C, -c, and -E reagents gave acceptable reactions for 60 days, hut polyclonal antie reagents reliably detected the e antigen only through 14 days. At that time it was noted that a monoclonal anti-e reacted 3+ to 4+ with red cells that no longer reacted, or reacted very weakly, with the polyclonal anti-e reagents. This observation led to a comparison study of the reactivity of

c-Fos and neuronal plasticity: the aftermath of Kaczmarek’s theory

The development of molecular biology methods in the early 1980s led to a better understanding of the role of transcription factors in mammalian cells. The discovery that some transcription factors are critically important for cells to switch between different functional states was fundamental for modern molecular neurobiology. In the 1980s Leszek Kaczmarek proposed that, analogically to the cell cycle or to cell differentiation, long-term synaptic plasticity, learning, and memory should also

These results indicate that acute FS or HL-OF proved to be a stressor that induces an increase in the density of BDNF-ir
