    • 2D & 3D ultrasound systems in development of medical imaging technology 

      Eljaaidi, Abdalla Agila (Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2016)
      Ultrasound is widely used in most medical clinics, especially obstetrical clinics. It is a way of imaging methods that has important diagnostic value. Although useful in many different applications, diagnostic ultrasound ...
    • Characterisation of radiation effects on power system components for cubesats 

      Bayimissa, Khader Destaing Mananga (Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2015)
      Front-end power converters for nanosatellite applications demand better performance in accurate reference tracking because of the wide-range input voltage of the solar panels. The very tight output voltage requirements ...
    • Control and protection analysis for power distribution in a distributed generation system 

      Aljadid, Abdolmonem Ibrahim (Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2016)
      Distributed Generation systems based on renewable energy sources, such as wind or solar are mostly intermittent sources, due to their dependency on the weather, whereas those based on other primary energy sources are ...
    • Design and development of a smart inverter system 

      Adekola, Olawale Ibrahim (Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2015)
      The growing interest in the use of solar energy to mitigate climate change, reduction in the cost of PV system and other favourable factors have increased the penetration of the PV(Photovoltaic) systems in the market and ...
    • Development of an active load shifting technique for demand side management applications 

      Majani, Charles Chore (Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2011)
      Initiatives that are directed towards improving power management by a utility provider have to consider technical feasibility, socio-economic and the environment. Patterns of power consumption world over indicate that ...
    • Development of real-time orbital propagator software for a Cubesat's on-board computer 

      Tshilande, Thinawanga (Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2015)
      A precise orbit propagator was developed for implementing on a CubeSat's on-board computer for real-time orbital position and velocity determination and prediction. Knowledge of the accurate orbital position and velocity ...
    • In-situ monitoring using nano-satellites : a systems level approach 

      Dixon, Benjamin Deon (Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2015)
      Traditional satellite systems employed for use with in-situ monitoring systems are large satellites that have a long development time, high cost and complex sub-systems. The end use of relaying data for in-situ monitoring ...
    • Modeling and control of a dual-mode grid-integrated renewable energy system 

      Mataifa, Haltor (Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2015)
      From the electric power generation perspective, the last three decades have been characterized by sustained growth in the amount of Distributed Power Generation (DPG) systems integrated into the electric grid. This trend ...
