COLLECTIVE ANIMAL BEHAVIOR ALGORITHM FOR SOLVING OPTIMAL REACTIVE POWER DISPATCH PROBLEM

This paper presents a collective animal behavior (CAB) algorithm for solving the multi-objective reactive power dispatch problem in power system. Modal analysis of the system is used for static voltage stability assessment. Loss minimization and maximization of voltage stability margin are taken as the objectives. Generator terminal voltages, reactive power generation of the capacitor banks and tap changing transformer setting are taken as the optimization variables A meta heuristic algorithm for global optimization called the collective animal behavior (CAB) is introduced.

THE PROBLEM OF DISABILITY IN INDIA: HOW TO BE TACKLED

There have been efforts internationally to include children with disabilities in the educational mainstream. Geoff Lindsay (2007:1) suggests that ‘inclusive education/mainstreaming is the key policy objective for education of children and young people with disabilities’.

ENGENDERING THE PROFESSIONS FOR THE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT OF WOMEN

Today, we find an increasing number of women in various professions, including the so-called male-dominated professions like Engineering, Management, Finance, Police, Defense and so on. However, very few reach the highest ranks in the professions. ‘Higher the fewer’ appropriately describes the position of women in professions. The graph of their professional development and advancement is far from satisfactory. This is due to socio-cultural, psychological and professional barriers which they face. Several studies have pointed out the under-achievement of professional women.

PROBLEMS OF GRAMMAR TEACHING-LEARNING AND EFFECTIVE PROCEDURES/WAYS FOR TEACHING GRAMMAR

Because of the globalization and privatization, rapid changes are taking place in the world. That is why, the need to acquire proficiency in English has been felt more than ever before. Communication-written as well as oral has become very necessary for the learners of English as a second language. In that case, the role of grammar instruction in an ESL/EFL context has been for decades a major issue for students and teachers alike.

CINEMATIC REPRESENTATION OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AGAINST NRI WOMEN WITH REFERENCE TO PROVOKED

The prospect of getting their daughters settled abroad and thereby themselves getting opportunities to migrate to foreign lands, still holds fascination for many Indian Families. Nevertheless this has often turned the dreams of many young Indian brides, lured into marital traps, into nightmares.

EVOLUTION OF SOCIAL WORK EDUCATION AND PROFESSION IN BANGLADESH

Social Work is the profession committed to the pursuit of social justice, to the enhancement of the quality of life, and to the development of the full potential of each individual, group and organizations and communities. Founded on humanitarian and egalitarian ideals Social Work has achieved profession status proving its skills by engaging in a broad range of activities within many types of settings and within many different people.

VOLTAMMETRIC STUDY OF PYRIDOXINE HYDROCHLORIDE USING GLASSY CARBON ELECTRODE

The oxidative behaviour of pyridoxine hydrochloride was studied at a glassy carbon electrode in 0.06 M Na2HPO4 – NaH2PO4 buffer using cyclic voltammetry (CV), differential pulse voltammetry (DPV) and square wave voltammetry (SWV). The oxidation process was shown to be irreversible over the entire pH range studied (5.0 - 9.0). The influence of the operational parameters like scan rate, pulse amplitude, and pulse period for the analytical signal was investigated.

SEROLOGICAL AND MOLECULAR TESTS FOR DIAGNOSIS OF TYPHOID - A REVIEW

Typhoid claims millions of lives worldwide each year and continues to be a serious health threat especially in developing countries like India. Till date, many tests have been developed for diagnosis of typhoid that are either based on detection of antibodies against SalmonellaTyphi antigens or detecting antigens that are specific to S.Typhi. However, all of them have limitations of sensitivity and specificity and none can be considered as ideal for diagnosis of typhoid.

A STUDY OF CO-OPERATIVE BANKS AND SOME CHALLENGES (A CASE OF THE VARACHHA CO-OPERATIVE BANK)

The origins of the urban co-operative banking movement in India can be traced to the close of nineteenth century. These co-operative societies are based on the principles of co-operation, mutual help, cooperative decision making and open membership.

The term co-operative Banks, though non-formally defined, refers to primary co-operative banks located in urban and semi-urban areas. These banks till 1996, were allowed to lend money only for non-agricultural purposes.

UNDERSTANDING SAMPRAPTI (AETIOPATHOGENESIS) OF A DISEASE IN LIGHT OF AYURVEDA

The Ayurvedic concept of evolution of disease, based primarily in the understanding of the host-man, meaning of disease without losing sight of either the extrinsic or the intrinsic factors is comprehensive by itself.  Object of Ayurveda is to relieve mankind from diseases and death and to ensure long life - full of health and youthful vigor.  The Ayurveda refers that the Samprapti (Aetiopathogenesis) of any disease is based on the imbalance of three Dosha (Bodily humors) – Vata, Pitta and Kapha.
