Stomata, the small opening in leaf connecting plant with atmosphere, play pivotal roles in global water and carbon cycles. Stomata regulate the two key important physiological functions viz. photosynthesis and transpiration and thus are crucial for performance of crop species in changing climatic conditions. Although environmental factors influence the density and size of stomata, the genetic control of this character is evident. High variation for this character is reported from different crop species and thus improvement of this character is possible through appropriately designed breeding strategy. In tea, stomatal density varied from 44.67 mm-2 to 108 mm-2 and this character exhibited a significant and positive correlation with photosynthetic rate (Pn) and water use efficiency. A high value for heritability and genetic advance was detected for this character in tea, indicating its tight genetic control. Thus stomatal density may be an important selection criterion and development of physiologically efficient tea clones and seed varieties may be possible by improving stomatal density through a suitably designed breeding strategy.

High Efficiency, High Density, PolyPhase Converters for High Current Applications

As logic systems get larger and more complex, their supply current requirements continue to rise. Systems requiring 100A are fairly common. A high current power supply to meet such requirements usually requires paralleling several power regulators to alleviate the thermal stress on the individual power components. A power supply designer is left with the choice of how to drive these paralleled ...

A High Torque Density Axial Flux SRM with Modular Stator

A novel structure of switched reluctance motors (SRMs) is proposed. The proposed structure uses the benefits of the axial flux path, short flux path, segmental rotor, and flux reversal free stator motors all together to improve the torque density of the SRMs. The main geometrical, electrical and physical specifications are presented. In addition, some features of the proposed structure are comp...

Selection Criterion for Interval

The most widely used guaranteed methods for global optimization are interval-based branch-and-bound techniques. In these techniques , we start with a single box { the entire function domain { as a possible location of the global minimum, and then, of each step, subdivide some of the boxes, use interval computations to compute the enclosure F (X); F(X)] f(X) for the range f(X) of the optimized f...
