A general approach to real-time transient stability control is described, yielding various complementary techniques: pure preventive, open loop emergency, and closed loop emergency controls. Recent progress in terms of a global transient stability constrained optimal power flow are presented, yielding in a scalable nonlinear programming formulation which allows to take near-optimal decisions for preventive control with a computing budget corresponding only to a few runs of standard optimal power flow and time domain simulations. These complementary techniques meet the stringent conditions imposed by the real-life applications. [less ▲]

In this paper, we explore how a computational approach to learning from interactions, called reinforcement learning (RL), can be applied to control power systems. We describe some challenges in power system control and discuss how some of those challenges could be met by using these RL methods. The difficulties associated with their application to control power systems are described and discussed as well as strategies that can be adopted to overcome them. Two reinforcement learning modes are considered: the online mode in which the interaction occurs with the real power system and the offline mode in which the interaction occurs with a simulation model of the real power system. We present two case studies made on a four-machine power system model. The first one concerns the design by means of RL algorithms used in offline mode of a dynamic brake controller. The second concerns RL methods used in online mode when applied to control a thyristor controlled series capacitor (TCSC) aimed to damp power system oscillations. [less ▲]

Io's motion relative to the Jovian magnetic field generates a power of about 10^12 W, which is thought to propagate as an Alfven wave along the magnetic field line. This power is transmitted to the electrons, which will then precipitate and generate the observed auroral phenomena from UV to radio wavelengths. A more detailed look at this hypothesis shows some difficulties: Can the Alfven waves escape the torus or are they trapped inside? Where and how are the particles accelerated? In which direction? Is there enough power transmitted to the particles to explain the strong brightness of the auroral emissions in UV, IR, visible, and radio? In other words, can we make a global, consistent model of the Io-Jupiter interaction that matches all the observations? To answer these questions, we review the models and studies that have been proposed so far. We show that the Alfven waves need to be filamented by a turbulent cascade process and accelerate the electrons at high latitude in order to explain the observations and to form a consistent scheme of the Io-Jupiter interaction.

Le cours d’Histoire de l’art de l’époque contemporaine (I et II) s’adresse à des étudiants ayant une connaissance préalable des mouvements artistiques qui jalonnent les XIXe et XXe siècles (cf. cours de 1er bac). Donné de manière « cyclique », le cours se divise en deux grandes parties : une première est consacrée au mouvement d’intérêt suscité par l’art japonais dans la seconde moitié du XIXe siècle et à ses prolongements après 1945 ; une seconde partie traite de problématiques variées liées à la création artistique depuis 1960 jusqu’à nos jours et consacre également une partie du cours à l’histoire de la photographie. De manière générale, ce cours a pour objectif de fournir à la fois les données historiques, stylistiques et tout éclairage (d'ordre philosophique, sociologique, politique, économique, scientifique, littéraire...) utiles à une compréhension plus approfondie des formes d'expressions plastiques de l’art moderne et contemporain.

Le cours a pour objectif de livrer les connaissances de base en histoire de l’art et archéologie des XIXe et XXe siècles. Y sont abordées les formes d'expressions plastiques (architecture, peinture, sculpture, arts graphiques, arts appliqués) qui se sont succédées et/ou opposées dans le monde occidental depuis la fin du XVIIIe siècle jusqu’à nos jours. Outre l’initiation à l’analyse des monuments et des œuvres, et à leur interprétation dans une perspective historique, le cours se veut le cadre de réflexions (philosophique, sociologique, littéraire, politique et économique, etc.) utiles à a compréhension des différentes ruptures qui se sont opérées pendant plus de deux siècles. Pour davantage de clarté, la matière est divisée en quatre grandes parties correspondant à quatre grandes périodes : 1789-1848 / 1848-1900 / 1900-1960/ 1960 à nos jours. [less ▲]

High resolution, ground based R and I band observations of the ultra compact dwarf galaxy POX 186 are presented. The data, obtained with the ESO New Technology Telescope (NTT), are analyzed using a new deconvolution algorithm which allows one to resolve the innermost regions of this stellar-like object into three Super-Star Clusters (SSC). Upper limits to both masses (M ~ 10[SUP]5[/SUP] M[SUB]sun[/SUB]) and physical sizes (<=60pc) of the SSCs are set. In addition, and maybe most importantly, extended light emission underlying the compact star-forming region is clearly detected in both bands. The R-I color rules out nebular Halpha contamination and is consistent with an old stellar population. This casts doubt on the hypothesis that Blue Compact Dwarf Galaxies (BCDG) are young galaxies. based on observations carried out at NTT in La Silla, operated by the European Southern Observatory, during Director's Discretionary Time.

The discovery of Jenner in 1798 founded the science of immunology and eventually led to smallpox eradication from the earth in 1980 after a world-wide vaccination campaign with vaccinia virus (another poxvirus) and paradoxically, despite the eradication of smallpox, there has been an explosion of interest in vaccinia virus in the eighties. This interest has stemmed in part from the application of molecular genetics to clone and express foreign genes from recombinant vaccinia viruses. Vaccinia is also gaining renewed interest due to bioterrorism.These recombinant viruses have multiple applications in research and vaccinology and led to the development of vectored vaccines, such as the recombinant vaccinia rabies vaccine used to eliminate rabies in Western Europe and, more recently, in the United States. Secondly, alternative poxvirus vectors, such as avipox viruses, were proved to be even safer and efficacious non-replicating vectors (suiciole vectors) when used in non-avian species. [less ▲]
