1. Elevator operated pump system

In this research, it has been attempted to show that some elevators work with water pump and their energy consumption could be reduced because of the water pump instead means does not the special motor is required for lifting the water from low reservoir to high reservoir and usage water pump as piston and cylinder arrangement with elevator system. The elevators system is operated on the powerful gear motor of the present day.The elevator is operated by electrical power and this elevator system piston and cylinder is connected and due to the motion of elevator suction and compression take place and water is delivered at the required height. Power of gear motor elevators is between 3.7 to 7.5 kW and the power requirement of this system is slightly less than the existing system of elevator and water pump system. The flow rate of Water depends on the load in the elevator if the maximum load in the elevator at that time maximum water will be delivered at the required height and when the minimum load in the elevator at that time minimum water will be delivered at the required height. Consequently, it can save energy, especially when two or more elevators are placed adjacent to each other. The discussion of this study concentrates on the dynamic simulation and physics of this type of elevators.

2. Smart home automation system using IR, Bluetooth, GSM and Android

The misuse of AC appliances is very common in this busy life as people tend to forget to switch off the appliances while staying away from the house. In home automation, the controlling of household appliances and residential house features like curtains and gates etc. is done automatically or semi-automatically. The web application also provides a view of the house but the user can face some troubles regarding it as the user needs to use the web every time he/she wishes to view the home appliances’ status. An easy method to control the home appliances using the android app is introduced that uses IR remote, Bluetooth and GSM rather than the traditional method of switches has been portrayed in this paper. Thus, to make an ordinary person understand the new technologies and to make the system as simple as it can is the sole motivation behind this system’s development. The control and automation of home appliances through mobile applications in remote areas and its implementation is the result of this research.

3. Use of SSA as partial replacement of fine aggregates in concrete

Sludge is the waste product of wastewater treatment. Its disposal is a complex problem that can affect air, land & environment and its large-scale disposal is a big challenge for any municipality. ocean dumping, landfilling & agricultural use are the methods of that are commonly used these days for disposal of sludge and these methods have severe impacts on our environment, m so we need alternative solutions to the problems we faced due to the disposal of sludge. a solution that can be attempted is using this disposed of sludge as a construction material by incinerating it. Incineration of dry sludge at a high temperature gives a low unit weight, porous, hard, cellular material. Later on, smaller-sized aggregates are made by crushing incinerated sludge and used for making lightweight concrete after graded in suitable proportions. This incinerated sludge can be used in replacement of stone dust in the construction of concrete pavements.

5. Non-systematic coded OFDM by unique word prefix

We expand our recently introduced concept of unique word orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (UW-OFDM). In UW-OFDM the cyclic prefixes (CPs) are replaced by deterministic sequences, the so-called unique words (UWs). The UWs are generated by appropriately loading a set of redundant subcarriers. By that a systematic complex number Reed–Solomon (RS) code construction is introduced in a quite natural way, because an RS code may be defined as the set of vectors, for which a block of successive zeros occurs in the other domain w.r.t. a discrete Fourier transform. (For a fixed block different to zero, i.e., a UW, a coset code of an RS code is generated.)A remaining problem in the original systematic coded UW-OFDM concept is the fact that the redundant subcarrier symbols disproportionately contribute to the mean OFDM symbol energy. In this paper, we introduce the concept of non-systematic coded UW-OFDM, where the redundancy is no longer allocated to dedicated subcarriers, but distributed over all subcarriers. We derive optimum complex valued code generator matrices matched to the best linear unbiased estimator (BLUE) and to the linear minimum mean square error (LMMSE) data estimator, respectively. With the help of simulations, we highlight the advantageous spectral properties and the superior bit error ratio (BER) performance of non-systematic coded UW-OFDM.

7. Limited liability partnership in India

There are many business relationships existing in today’s world. The oldest form of business relationships is Partnership. In terms of complex business, limited liability companies have replaced partnerships but still, the partnership is preferred for business enterprises and small trading for professionals worldwide. But nowadays partnership has lost its demand primarily for “unlimited liability of partners.” In case any liability arises, each partner in the company has the risk of exposure of personal assets. Since 1907, there have been reviews on partnership in various countries carried out by law commissions for modernization.

9. Power efficient FIR filter design using distributed arithmetic algorithm

In the Communication system, FIR filter is used to reduce the noise from the signals. The complexity and power dissipation have been increased by designing the FIR filter using the multiplier. Distributed Arithmetic (DA) is a different approach for implementing digital filters. By using DA algorithm the complexity of the FIR filter can be reduced. Distributed arithmetic is one way to implement convolution with multiplier less unit, where the multipliers are replaced by the Reconfigurable Partial Product Generator (RPPG). Pipeline Adder Tree (PAT) and Pipeline Shift Adder Tree (PSAT) are designed by using adders such as Carry Save Adder, Carry Skip Adder, and Ripple Carry Adder. In this proposed design three types of adders are used to design the FIR filter and have compared the power dissipation. The coding was done using Verilog and simulated using ModelSim 5.7g. FIR architectures of different combinations with respect to power were generated using Quartus II.
