With no sharing dead time circuit of the boost converter synchronous rectifier, the switch node voltage can be allowed to fully commutate to get ZVS turn-on of Q3 at the chosen operating point with a dead time of approximately 40 ns.
This paper has presented a monitor AGC algorithm of expert PI controller with FSP which is suitable for the control of processes with long dead time. Compared with a conventional algorithm it has the advantage of obtaining real-time thickness and improving robustness.

A new PI-PD Smith predictor for control of processes with long dead time. In: Proceedings of the 14th IFAC World Congress, Beijing, China
In this paper, the admissible sets of PID controller values were found using the Hurwitz criterion for the Pure Integrating Process with dead time. The PID Controller values obtained satisfies the robust performance condition for the system.
"And there's a lot of dead time looking at analysis of opposition and ourselves, and we have to get better as a group as far as that's concerned."
Featuring a low dead time of 8 ms, combined with an acquisition rate of 50 points/sec, the system ensures reliable and precise data collection.
A chromatographic run can be described in terms of various times: e.g., idle time, dead time, chromatography time, and cycle time.
From the view of a control loop, the rotor acts as a dead time control element.
Current good-resolution, position sensitive neutron detectors are limited in the flux they can process by intensity-dependent dead time. At present, there is no position sensitive neutron detector that can process neutron currents greater than [10.sup.6]/s with a nearly 100% efficiency over an active area of about 10 cm X 10 cm.
Chris Haynes and Ronald Castellano, the hands-on developers, architects and builders of the Garfield building on Henry Street in the burgeoning Lower East Side, conquered both these challenges and sold their eight luxury apartments in a mere five weeks over the holidays, a traditionally dead time for real estate.
