Maurer, Peter M.
We show that any non-singular nxn matrix of order p[superscript n]-1 over GF(p) is a generator of a matrix representation of GF(p[superscript n]). We also determine the number of matrix representations of GF(p[superscript n])GF(p) over GF(p), and then number of order p[superscript n]-1 matrices in the general linear group of degree n over GF(p). The theorems are easily generalizable to arbitrary field extensions.

Estrada, Diego F.
With technology and a larger-than-ever population, the society demand for energy
has achieved records in the last few years. Currently, large-scale fossil fuel power plants, ranging in the hundreds of MW’s, produce most of the power in the United States and must do efficiently with more added regulation and more in the short term future. The control for these large-scale power plants can be complex but must still address several
different operating objectives.
Implementing advanced control for a large-scale power plant targeting multiple
objectives can be computationally intensive as well as difficult when attempted in a
centralized control configuration. In order for this control to be more flexible, adaptive
and robust, it needs to be coordinated in distributed environments. The method presented in this thesis involves Multi-Agent System (MAS), which addresses the challenges of computing optimal multi-objective control using Java Agent Development (JADE) Framework, a much more communication-efficient, network-oriented environment.

Wu, Guiying, 1985-
This thesis demonstrates a power conditioning system (PCS) for grid-connected
hybrid direct fuel-cell with turbine (DFC/T) power plant. The PCS is an interface
between distributed generation and utility grid. It regulates voltage, current and power
transmitted from the hybrid DFC/T power plant to utility grid. The proposed system
consists of DC/DC converters, DC/AC inverter, and an LCL filter. The DC/DC converter
and DC/AC inverter use switches that operate at high speeds. The use of detailed model
with switches will decrease the simulation speed, thus it takes long time to execute time
simulations in MATLAB. This thesis utilizes effective averaged models for converter and
inverter to reduce the calculation time for a large-scale fuel cell power plant in
MATLAB. To regulate and stabilize the DC bus voltage, DC/DC converter with PI
controller is adopted. For the DC/AC inverter, active and reactive power flow controller
is used.
