I have a paper on IEEE!

Visualization for Power Systems Operation for Economic Energy Interchange in Power Pools

Summary: Effective power system operation requires engineers and operator to analyze large amounts of multivariate data. Power system studies have a need for effective visualization software to display large amounts of information on the screen. The visualization tools encountered by many power system operators and engineers have evolved little beyond tabular displays and the one-line diagram. Java-based visualization of power system operation is presented. In addition to the single line diagram, various new approaches including contouring, addition of dynamically sized components, adding an extra dimension to the plot using various 3D Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), such as OpenGL are described. Two case studies of Economic Energy Interchange in a Power Pool with Energy brokerage and load flow are considered to illustrate the working of the proposed technique.

This is my BTP... Before I left, my prof had insisted I also submit my BTP in paper form. It seems the guy got it published... I never even realized it till today!!

Google Baba to become File Baba too

The international syndicate of Google hacks (Google System) has uploaded a new entry on how to download all sorts of files (videos, MP3s etc.) off Google.

I can understand MPAA and RIAA blocking file sharing sites. Dont know what they will do about the googlebot thought :)

First Post

Well this is my first post on blogger. I have another blog on JRoller and one on Yahoo 360, but they are pretty much dead, so I guess its time to start over again :)

By the way, if anyone wants to know where I got this nifty three column format, check out this site for a tutorial, this one for a tool and this one for a huge list of previously generated templates...
