AbstractTelemetry data are usually collected for analysis at some later time and can be monitored to follow the progress of a test. In the case of an Air Data System the signals from the sensors are sent to a computer that calculates the air data parameters for use on multiple LabView-generated displays, as well as to the Data Acquisition System. The readouts on the multiple displays need to be real-time so they are useful to the flight crew. Equations that control the different air data values are determined by what telemetry data are available and the preference of those doing the test planning. These systems need to display the information in a format useful to the flight crew and be reliable.

Systemic indicators of inorganic arsenic toxicity in several speciesMitchell, Roger Dale, 1955- (The University of Arizona., 1988)Seven prospective biological indicators of systemic toxicity were examined at time points ranging from 15 minutes to 24 hours using male Sprague-Dawley rats, B6C3F1 mice, Golden-Syrian hamsters and Hartley guinea pigs following intraperitoneal dosing with 0.1 mg/kg and 1.0 mg/kg sodium arsenite. Rats and mice were also dosed with 1.0 mg/kg sodium arsenate. Pyruvate dehydrogenase (PDH) activity was significantly depressed at early time points in mice, hamsters and guinea pigs and at later time points in rats dosed with arsenic (III). Rats and mice dosed with arsenic (V) also exhibited PDH depression at early time points. Uroporphyrin and coproporphyrin excretion was elevated in mice following arsenic (III) dosing. Coproporphyrin excretion was elevated in rats following arsenic (V) dosing. Blood glucose, creatinine, urea nitrogen and creatinine were unchanged by arsenic dosing. Based upon the amount and types of biological responses observed, the mouse appears to be the most sensitive animal model for the further study of arsenic toxicity.
Market power in electric power markets: Indications of competitiveness in spatial prices for wholesale electricityDenton, Michael John, 1955- (The University of Arizona., 1997)The issue of market delineation and power in the wholesale electric energy market is explored using three separate approaches: two of these are analyses of spatial pricing data to explore the functional size of the markets, and the third is a series of experimental tests of the effects of different cost structures and market mechanisms on oligopoly strength in those markets. An equilibrium model of spatial network competition is shown to yield linear relationships between spatial prices. A data set comprising two years of spatial weekly peak and off-peak prices and weather for 6 locations in the Western States Coordinating Council and the Southwest Power Pool is subjected to a pairwise cointegration analysis. The use of dummy variables to account the the flow directions is found to significantly improve model performance. The second analytical technique utilizes the extraction of principal components from a spatial price correlation matrix to identify the extent of natural markets. One year of daily price observations for eleven locations within the WSCC is compiled and eigenvectors are extracted and subjected to oblique rotation, each of which is then interpreted as representing a separate geographic market. The results show that two distinct natural markets, correlated at 84%, account for over 96% of the variation in the spatial prices in the WSSC. Together, the findings support the assertion that the wholesale electricity market in the Western U.S. is large and highly competitive. The experimental analysis utilizes a radial three node network in which suppliers located at the outer nodes sell to buyers located at the central node. The parameterization captures the salient characteristics of the existing bulk power markets, and includes cyclical demand, transmission losses, as well as fixed and avoidable fixed costs for all agents. Treatments varied the number of sellers, the avoidable fixed cost structures, and the trading mechanism. Results indicated that sealed bid markets greatly reduced the ability of sellers to exert market power. Overall the existence of higher avoidable fixed costs tended to ameliorate market power effects.
