It was visualized by Leon Chua in 1971. Memristor can form a non-linear relationship with electric charge and magnetic flux. Memristor has the capability to hold data even if it is not connected to any power source. This property makes it non-volatile in nature. Memristor is a non-volatile memory which can be used for data storage. International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors acknowledges that it is difficult to scale the transistor beyond its current size and to overcome the existing memory issues, emerging memristor technology is being developed. The objective of this research is to realize the memristor based non-volatile memory which can consume less power with better Read/Write time. In this research, properties and construction of memristor is analyzed. In order to construct a memristor, various softwares like LTspice and MATLAB are used.</strong></p> Hafiz Asadullah Baig, Anas Ali Copyright (c) 2023 IEEEP New Horizons Journal Thu, 26 Oct 2023 00:00:00 +0000 Analysis and Integration of Renewable Energy Resources based Microgrid using Smart Inverter <p>Nowadays the world is depending on renewable energies like solar energy and wind energy as they are the natural resources to generate power. By combining both the renewable energies,&nbsp; it&nbsp; produces a system named as solar wind hybrid system as solar and wind energy are tremendous in nature and together they increase the reliability of the system. In this research paper, solar energy and wind turbine are used as the main sources, along with solar panel a buck boost converter is used to maintain the voltage to a rated value and with the wind turbine a rectifier circuit is used to convert AC voltage into DC. &nbsp;The characteristics of RES with an AC grid are also observed using solar and wind energy. With the aid of a multi-level inverter, solar and wind energy are converted from DC to AC at a predetermined voltage in order to produce electricity. &nbsp;It can be stated that, in comparison to traditional energy sources, renewable energy sources are currently quite useful.</p> Sughand Mallah, Aisha Chang, Amjad Hussain Memon Copyright (c) 2023 IEEEP New Horizons Journal Thu, 26 Oct 2023 00:00:00 +0000 Timeline Binder: A Caption-based Approach for Creating Semantic Video Timeline <p>Video is an important type of multimedia which has myriad characteristics such as richer content and little prior structure. Major applications such as surveillance, medicine, education, entertainment, and sports heavily use videos. Internet protocol video is dominating the World’s Internet traffic. Large number of videos are made and uploaded daily. Looking for topics of one’s interest in these videos is a cumbersome task. Mostly, people are only interested in small portions of videos as opposed to the whole video. It is better to look for small but related segments of interest. Our proposed system Timeline Binder is an attempt to tackle this problem. For Timeline Binder, we have created our own dataset of online videos with subtitles. Based on those subtitles’ files, a concept vector is obtained. If a concept vector has a match for a user’s query tag, then timed segments for all related videos to that matched concept in the concept vector are combined into a single timeline thus making all related segments into a single video. In this research, we present performance measurements between Timeline Binder and other available applications such as Google2SRT and NR8. The results show that Timeline Binder performs better than Google2SRT and NR8.</p> Muhammad Faran Majeed, Alam Zeb, Khalid Saeed, Rana Abu Bakar, Sadam Hussain Copyright (c) 2023 IEEEP New Horizons Journal Thu, 26 Oct 2023 00:00:00 +0000 Development of level three solar based fast charging station for electric vehicle <p class="Abstract" style="line-height: 115%;">The whole research is based on the charging process of electric vehicle as this is the emerging future of Pakistan. to reduce the environmental pollution the whole world is transferring towards renewable energy, so the transportation sector is also a great source of causing environmental pollution so to reduce this problem the transportation section is moving toward pollution free vehicle as the electric vehicle is now a days in market. But the charging of electric vehicle is again must be pollution free to reduce pollution impact. In order to achieve this goal, the charging strategy must be pollution free so renewable energy is the best solution and to reduce the charging time the fast-charging station is presented to charge a battery in less time using renewable energy. The advanced used batteries are lithium-ion battery these batteries have two charging modes of charging combining these two will generate more effective results for charging in less time. By using two hybrid sources the system become reliable in case of weather dependent situation</p> HIRA MEMON, Engr. Shamir ul Islam, Engr.

The growing demand for storing the bulk amount of data and retrieving the data as fast as possible from hard disk drives (HDDs) has posed manufacturers with various challenges. To overcome these hurdles different methods, techniques, and control systems are developed to improve the transient response of the HDDs. The transient response of a system is characterized by numerous specifications such as overshooting, peak time, settling time, delay, and rise time. This can also be achieved by using several stages of actuators servomechanism that can also help us to store a large amount of data, it also helps to increase the accuracy of head-positioning of the actuator that eventually leads to enhancement of the transient response of hard disk drives (HDDs). By increasing the accuracy of read/write head actuator there is a challenge to cater the friction at pivot of actuator. This friction can significantly reduce the speed of the actuator and that ultimately leads to the reduced transient responses of the system. This paper aims to design a new modelled-base friction compensator for the servo control of hard disk drives that can improve the transient response of HDDs. Thus, improving the transient responses of HDDs can make the computer more efficient than ever and can save a lot of time while making complex calculations. To achieve this aim measured and replicated responses will be used as guidance and the friction design of HDD will iteratively improve. This can be done by feeding the measured friction forces back to the voice coil motor (VCM) so that the frequencies of the actuator’s head and current be linearized. This proposed design will help in the cancelation scheme and the model-based compensator will be implemented. By improving the tracking seek of HDDs we can also write the data much faster on the HDD and by using numerous techniques we can store a large amount of data on HDDs. Our aim is also to integrate a PID controller into our control system so that we can improve the transient response as much as possible. Our work can be considered important as there are very few frictions compensator control designs that have integrated the PID controller. We are aiming to achieve a significantly improved pivotal friction compensator that can help us to achieve improved transient response of the hard disk drive (HDD).</p> Muhammad Umer Rana, Muhammad Junaid Ansar, Syed Irtiza Ali Shah, Majid Mehmood Copyright (c) 2023 IEEEP New Horizons Journal Thu, 26 Oct 2023 00:00:00 +0000
