Enhancing the reliability of C & N accounting in economic activities: Integration of bio-geochemical cycles with Eco-LCA
2010 Edition, May 1, 2010 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

BIOGEOCHEMICAL cycles are the basic mechanism of nutrient cycling in geobiosphere. The anthropogenic activities have led to disruption of the balance of some of these cycles, resulting in adverse...

Enhancing the reliability of C and N accounting in economic activities : Integration of bio-geochemical cycle with Eco-LCA
2010 Edition, May 1, 2010 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

The resilience of earth systems depend on delicate balance of several natural cycles and phenomena. Recently, scientists have enumerated few of the significant Earth-system processess and their boundaries which should not be transgressed in order to...

Eco-LCA: A tool for quantifying the role of ecological resources in LCA
2009 Edition, May 1, 2009 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

THE Ecologically based Life Cycle Assessment (Eco-LCA) tool has been developed to aid for quick implementation of the Eco-LCA methodology. Eco-LCA [1] is a methodology which accounts for the ecosystems goods and...

Enhancing Reliability of Analog Neural Network Processors
Volume PP - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Recently, analog and mixed-signal neural network processors have been extensively studied due to their better energy efficiency and small footprint. However, analog computing is more vulnerable to circuit nonidealities such as process variation than their digital counterparts. On-chip calibration...

The More the Merrier: Enhancing Reliability of 5G Communication Services with Guaranteed Delay
Volume PP - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Although network functions virtualization and software-defined networking offer many dynamic features such as flexibility, scalability, and programmability for easy provisioning of services at a lesser cost and time through service function chaining, it introduces new challenges in...

Reliability Aware Design and Lifetime Management of Computing Platforms
Volume PP - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Meeting reliability targets with viable costs in the nanometer landscape become a significant challenge, requiring to be addressed unitarily from design to run time. To this end, we propose a holistic reliability aware design and lifetime management framework...

Reliability Analysis for Disjoint Paths
Volume PP - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Our contemporary society survives on the services provided by several network infrastructures, such as communication, power, and transportation, so their reliability should be accurately evaluated from various aspects. While past studies defined network reliability in...

Microgrid Topology Planning for Enhancing the Reliability of Active Distribution Networks
Volume PP - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Loop-based microgrids are signified by their high reliability in islanded and grid-connected operations. This paper proposes an iterative procedure for the optimal design of a microgrid topology in active distribution networks, which applies graph partitioning,...

Enhancing Quality for HEVC Compressed Videos
Volume PP - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

The latest High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) standard has been increasingly applied to generate video streams over the Internet. However, HEVC compressed videos may incur severe quality degradation, particularly at low bit-rates. Thus, it is necessary to enhance the...

A model-based reliability metric considering aleatory and epistemic uncertainty
Volume PP - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Model-based reliability analysis and assessment methods rely on models, which are assumed to be precise, to predict reliability. In practice, however, the precision of the model cannot be guaranteed due to the presence of epistemic uncertainty...
