  1. Recognition of Non-Native Speakers

    SBC: LI Creative Technologies Inc.            Topic: A08085

    We propose a novel and promising non-native speaker recognition system by using both high-level language cues and low-level acoustic accent cues. The system consists of a high-level language cue based sub-system and four accent recognition based sub-systems. Each sub-system can be used individually or together via system fusion. The novelty and uniqueness of our proposed approach are as follows: F ...

  2. A Fast Acting Solid-State Circuit Breaker for Electrical Power Systems

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: OSD08EP6

    Increased demands for electric vehicle performance have resulted in large power requirements and the potential for extremely large fault currents. This is true not only for over-the-road electric and hybrid vehicles, but also for ships and aircraft, which are increasingly moving toward all-electric propulsion. Without fast and reliable means to limit fault currents and isolate faulted sections, ...
