  • This paper presents sparse representation and dictionary design in the segmentation of echocardiographic image sequences.
  • The presented method is based on sparse representation and the design of over-complete dictionaries based on prior knowledge of the intensity variation time curves (IVTC).
  • The extrapolations from ejection fraction calculated from the segmentation results are entirely compatible with manual results.
  • The proposed method can be applied in combination with other techniques of echocardiography images diagnosis to obtain highly accurate computation of the parameters.
  • The proposed method can be applied to 3D echocardiography images to obtain the left ventricular volume.
  • Our method also may be used for other imaging modalities, such as MRI or CT.

  • This paper proposes a grid-connected single-phase micro-inverter (MI) with a rated power of 300 W and an appropriate control strategy for photovoltaic (PV) systems.
  • In the proposed MI, the active power decoupling circuit, which is normally used in a typical single-stage SEPIC-based MI, is eliminated to achieve both a long lifetime and high efficiency.
  • The advantages of the proposed MI are the use of fewer components to provide suitable output voltage level for connection to a single-phase network, continuous input current, limited voltage stress on the switch, high efficiency, long operational lifetime, and high reliability.
  • Lower input current ripple and the presence of film capacitors in the power decoupling circuit increase the lifetime and reliability of the proposed MI.
  • The performance of the proposed control system was verified with the purposes of harvesting maximum PV power, stabilizing the DC-link voltage, injecting low THD sinusoidal current into the grid, and controlling the active power injected into the grid at unity power factor.
  • Moreover, the performance of the proposed control system was studied for a sudden change in solar radiation.
