A Study on DOA and Delay Time Presumption based on Average Method
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 13, issue 2, 2004, Pages 1~12
This paper estimated the arrival angle and electric wave delay time using the space method law and the directions of arrival (DOA) estimation algorithm in case of signal correlation. Space method law is the method used to repress cross correlation before applying the weight value to the receiving signal. The values of the diagonal elements in the correlation matrix were averaged to replace as the diagonal elements value. In the area of wireless communication or mobile communication, there are high correlations in case of low delay time difference in multiple waves. This causes the quality of the communication to drop due to interference with the desired signal elements. This paper estimated the arrival angle and electric wave delay time using the space method law and the MUSIC algorithm. With the arrival angle algorithm, the arrival angle cannot be estimated below 5 in case of signal correlations because the angle resolution capacity decreases accordingly. The super resolution capacity was estimated to determine the arrival angle below 5 in this paper. In addition, the proposed algorithm estimated the short delay time difference to be below 20ns.
Development of a Dedicated Model for a Real-Time Simulation of the Pressurizer Relief Tank of the Westinghouse Type Nuclear Power Plant
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 13, issue 2, 2004, Pages 13~21
The thermal-hydraulic model ARTS which was based on the RETRAN-3D code adopted in the domestic full-scope power plant simulator which was provided in 1998 by KEPRI. Since ARTS is a generalized code to model the components with control volumes, the smaller time-step size should be used even if converged solution could not get in a single volume. Therefore, dedicated models which do not force to reduce the time-step size are sometimes more suitable in terms of a real-time calculation and robustness. In the case of PRT(Pressurizer Relief Tank) model, it is consist of subcooled water in bottom and non-condensable gas in top. The sparger merged under subcooled water enhances condensation. The complicated thermal-hydraulic phenomena such as condensation, phase separation with existence of non-condensable gas makes difficult to simulate. Therefore, the PRT volume can limit the time-step size if we model it with a general control volume. To prevent the time-step size reduction due to convergence failure for simulating this component, we developed a dedicated model for PRT. The dedicated model was expected to provide substantially more accurate predictions in the analysis of the system transients. The results were resonable in terms of accuracy, real-time simulation, robustness and education of operators, complying with the ANSI/ANS-3.5-1998 simulator software performance criteria and RETRAN-3D results.

Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 13, issue 2, 2004, Pages 23~34
Regenerative simulation (RS) is a method of stochastic steady-state simulation in which output data are collected and analysed within regenerative cycles (RCs). Since data collected during consecutive RCs are independent and identically distributed, there is no problem with the initial transient period in simulated processes, which is a perennial issue of concern in all other types of steady-state simulation. In this paper, we address the issue of experimental analysis of the quality of sequential regenerative simulation in the sense of the coverage of the final confidence intervals of mean values. The ultimate purpose of this study is to determine the best version of RS to be implemented in Akaroa2 , a fully automated controller of distributed stochastic simulation in LAN environments.
Economic Analysis of Plant Utilities Under Environment Factor
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 13, issue 2, 2004, Pages 35~43
The purpose of this study is an economic analysis of power plant utilities by comparing electricity generating cost including environmental costs. Considering the enormous role of electricity in the national economy, it is very important to study the effect of environmental regulation on the electricity sector. Because power utilities need for large investment during construction, operation and maintenance, and also require much construction lead time. Economic analysis is the important process in the electric system expansion planning. This paper compares the costs of electricity generation including environmental costs between a coal-fired power plant and an LNG combined cycle power plants. With the simulation, this study surveys the sensitivity of fuel prices, interest rate and carbon tax. In each case, this sensitivity can help to decide which utility is economically better in environmental regulation circumstance.

Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 13, issue 2, 2004, Pages 45~52
This paper presents a prototype visualization system of mixed reality for a VR flight simulator. The chroma key technique is used to build the mixed reality model for a VR flight simulator. The Daedeok science town can be visualized in real time according to the rider control. He can also see his own hand/foot operating the control stick/rudder as well as virtual environment projected to the blue-screen using a video-see-through HMD.
Link Handover Scheme in Ad Hoc Networks
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 13, issue 2, 2004, Pages 53~63
In ad hoc networks, the link survivability is firstly considered if a routing between two mobile nodes takes place through wireless environments, because all of mobile nodes participating in a connection dynamically move to anywhere. Also, mobile nodes have multi-role to implement a communication without a static system supported by wired networks. Hence, it is difficult that all mobile nodes continuously provide a reliable connection when the nodes operate each role for the connection. Therefore, it is desired to maximize the lifetime of a route as long as possible for the reliable communication. In this paper, we propose a proactive link management scheme that can provide the continuous route supported by the link handover. It consider the wireless link quality and the power lifetime of a node so that the link handover is implemented for the link survivability without disconnecting the route on the communication.
A Reaction Scheme supporting the Reliable Service in Mobile Networks
Journal of the Korea Society for Simulation, volume 13, issue 2, 2004, Pages 65~73
The capability to provide the network service must survive even if a significant network system element is disrupted. To sustain the network service under the system failure, network survivability mechanisms minimizing the impact of failures are needed. Also, since the mobile network has its unique characteristic, the survivability scheme for the vulnerability of the mobile network is required. This paper proposes a survivability scheme to support the reliable service of the wireless access point level (BS-base station system). By the survivability scheme, the mobile network can use an overlap BS of the cellular network architecture after a BS system failure. We analyze the performance of the proposed scheme using Markov model. Also, a computer simulation is used for the scheme analysis. The proposed scheme shows that the service of the mobile network can be provided under the BS system failure.
