AGI systems aim to replicate human-like intelligence and adaptability by possessing the capacity to perform a variety of intellectual tasks that are commonly associated with human beings. As opposed to narrow or weak AI systems, which are designed to perform specific tasks or solve particular problems, AGI seeks to generate machines that can reason, learn, and solve problems with the same level of competence and flexibility as humans. The multimodal nature of data makes it possible to obtain high-quality solutions to problems of analyzing corrupted or visually attacked images, provided that additional, nonvisual information is available. Additionally, the trend in artificial intelligence towards models with billions of parameters is due to the growth of data modality, leading to significantly higher complexity of models. The paper discusses the field of Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) and its potential to replicate human-like intelligence and adaptability. AGI systems aim to perform a variety of intellectual tasks that are commonly associated with human beings. Overall, the paper provides insights into the current state and future prospects of AGI research, highlighting both the potential and challenges of this rapidly developing field.</p> 2023-04-17T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Advanced Natural Sciences and Engineering Researches https://as-proceeding.com/index.php/ijanser/article/view/496 Control of Three-Phase Dimmer using Xilinx System Generator 2023-04-17T00:46:36+03:00 Chafa Mohamed muhamed.chafa@umc.edu.dz Messaoudi Kamel muhamed.chafa@umc.edu.dz Louze Lamri muhamed.chafa@umc.edu.dz <p>Dimmers are alternative converters used to make dimmers for some devices running on the network, as well as in many industrial processes, in this work, the PWM control was presented for a three-phase dimmer associated with an asynchronous machine, first the Matlab/Simulink software was used and then the control was carried out using the Xilinx System Generator tool, the results obtained are comparable for the two implementation software have shown the operation of the dimmer as a starter for the asynchronous machine.</p> 2023-04-17T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Advanced Natural Sciences and Engineering Researches https://as-proceeding.com/index.php/ijanser/article/view/530 Bitkisel Atık Yağın Bir Termoelektrik Modülde Pasif Soğutucu Olarak Kullanılabilirliğin Deneysel İncelenmesi 2023-04-18T16:35:18+03:00 Engin Özbaş engin.ozbas@omu.edu.tr Yıldıray Yeşilyurt engin.ozbas@omu.edu.tr <p>Çevreye kontrolsüz olarak bırakılan her atık başta insan sağlığı olmak üzere tüm canlılara zarar vermektedir. Özellikle su kirliliğine neden olan atıklardan bir tanesi de bitkisel atık yağdır. Bitkisel atık yağ, biyolojik ve/veya kimyasal bir takım işlemlerden sonra tekrar kullanılabilmektedir. Ancak fiziksel olarak basit bir süzme işleminin dışında herhangi bir işleme tabi tutulmadan doğrudan tekrar kullanımına rastlanmamaktadır. Termoelektrik jeneratör (TEJ) güneş enerjisi gibi bir ısı kaynağı ile elektrik üretebilen elektronik bir parçadır. TEJ aynı zamanda sessiz ve güvenli olmaları nedeniyle de tercih edilebilmektedir. TEJ’in iki yüzeyi arasında meydana getirilen sıcaklık farkı ile elektrik üretimi gerçekleşmektedir. Çeşitli soğutma teknikleri ile söz konusu sıcaklık farkının arttırılması ile üretilen elektrik artmaktadır. Bundan dolayı uygulanan soğutma teknikleri TEJ için önemlidir. Bu çalışmada güneş enerjili ısı borusu ile ısıtması sağlanan bir TEJ için pasif soğutma uygulanmıştır. Pasif soğutucu olarak genel geri kazanım yöntemlerinden farklı şekilde sadece fiziksel bir süzme işlemine tabi tutulan bitkisel atık yağ kullanılmıştır. Güneş simülasyonu ile yapılan deneylerde 75 dakika boyunca pasif soğutucunun etkisi incelenmiştir. Referans olarak kabul edilen duruma göre soğutucu akışkan olarak kullanılan bitkisel atık yağ ile iki yüzey arasındaki sıcaklık farkının yaklaşık %5 arttığı görülmüştür.

Disposal of these wastes can be achieved either by using recycling methods or as reinforcement material. In this study, research has been carried out on the use of organic wastes in composite materials. For example, the effects of organic fillers on the physical and chemical properties of polyester composites have been investigated. Organic wastes (biomass) are prepared as fillers after drying and grinding. Especially, biomass samples with a fibrous structure improve the mechanical properties of composites. The use of such organic wastes in polyester composites is preferred for obtaining both economical and low-density materials. However, such fillers should be used in optimum proportions in the composite. Because the use of these wastes at a high rate negatively affects both the surface morphology and the pore structure of polyester composites. Besides, the evaluation of these wastes in the production of polyester composites reduces the carbon footprint. Such fillers interact physically in the polyester composite. If no chemical modification is made, it does not react with polyester components and does not make a chemical bond. According to the evaluated results, it reduces the density and hardness of the polyester composite. Also, it decreases the thermal conductivity coefficient and thermal stability, albeit slightly.</p> 2023-04-22T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Advanced Natural Sciences and Engineering Researches https://as-proceeding.com/index.php/ijanser/article/view/538 Use of Inorganic Wastes as Fillers in Production of Polyester Composites and Evaluation of Properties of Obtained Composite 2023-04-22T14:54:42+03:00 Mukaddes Karataş ercanaydogmus@firat.edu.tr Ercan Aydoğmuş ercanaydogmus@firat.edu.tr <p>The use of industrial factory wastes as a filler in polymer composite materials is becoming more and more common. In this way, these wastes that cause environmental pollution are eliminated and new composite materials are developed. Polymer composites with low cost and high thermal stability are preferred in many sectors. In this research, some physical and chemical properties of inorganic waste reinforced polyester composites have been evaluated. The use of industrial inorganic wastes as fillers in polyester composites develops some thermophysical properties of composites. In particular, such industrial wastes are dried before being used in the composite, the particle size is reduced, and it is ensured to have a homogeneous structure. This type of waste, which is used as filler, is used in the polyester composite in optimum proportions. The use of high inorganic fillers in polyester both weakens the mechanical strength of the composites and negatively affects the matrix structure. Besides, inorganic waste reinforcement raises the surface hardness of polyester composites. Such fillers are improved both the thermal stability and non-flammability of the polyester composite. High-density inorganic fillers are used to obtain a high-density and economical polyester composite. Low-density inorganic industrial wastes also reduce the density of composites. However, the reinforcement of inorganic fillers into polyester at a high rate adversely affects both the surface morphology and the workability of the produced composites.</p> 2023-04-22T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Advanced Natural Sciences and Engineering Researches https://as-proceeding.com/index.php/ijanser/article/view/539 Monitoring of the Physico-Chemical Quality of a Frying Oil and its Valorization as Biofuel (Biodiesel) 2023-04-22T15:28:58+03:00 Damba Nadhir boudjmaa.damba@yahoo.fr Djaber Abdelkrim boudjmaa.damba@yahoo.fr <p>The production of biofuels such as biodiesel has attracted considerable attention as a cleaner source of renewable energy, which can greatly contribute to reducing our dependence on fossil fuels.</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; In this study, we were interested in the production of a biofuel based on non-food used frying oil, and followed by a physico-chemical evaluation, the results obtained showed the thermo-oxidative alteration of this oil. , confirmed by the evolution of the physico-chemical indices during frying.</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; At the end, this used oil is recovered as fuel (biodiesel).

Konvansiyonel kurutma işlemlerinde, doğalgaz yakılarak ısı enerjisine dönüştürülmekte; kuru havanın ısıtılması ve kurutma makinası içerisinde devir daimî yapılarak ürünlerdeki suyun konveksiyon yoluyla taşınması sağlanmaktadır. Ürünün sıcaklıkla ilk buluştuğu dış yüzey, ısınarak kurumaya başlamakta; iletimle geçen ısı ile iç kısımlar daha sonra kurumaktadır. İç kısmın kuruması sağlanıncaya dek dış kısım, kuruyup sertleşmeye başlamaktadır. Standart kurutmanın artan doğal gaz tüketim maliyetleri, uzun kurutma süreleri, ürün tuşelerini sertleştirmesi, mukavemet kayıplarına neden olması gibi sorunları; üreticileri, alternatif kurutma sistemleri arayışına itmektedir. Son zamanlarda mikrodalga sistemlerinin farklı elyaf içerikli ürünleri kurutmada kullanıldığı bilinmektedir. Mikrodalga kurutma yönteminde, ürün içerisindeki su molekülleri (dış ve iç kısım), aldıkları mikrodalga enerjisinden dolayı homojen olarak ısınmakta ve yüzeye ulaşarak üründen uzaklaşmaktadır. Bu projede; farklı elyaf içerikli denim ürünlerin mikrodalga ve standart kurutma prosesleri, ürün özelliklerine etkileri ve enerji maliyetleri bakımından karşılaştırılmaktadır. Standart kurutma süreleri, 10-30 dakika aralığında iken mikrodalga yönteminde bu süre 5 dakika civarına düşmektedir. Enerji maliyetleri karşılaştırıldığında, mikrodalga kurutma sisteminde doğalgaz tüketimi olmaması ve daha kısa sürede kurutma sağlaması sayesinde mikrodalga sisteminin, konvansiyonel kurutma sistemlerine göre çok daha avantajlı olduğu görülmüştür. Bunun yanında, mikrodalga yöntemi ile kurutulan ürünler, sertleşmediği için ekstra yumuşatma ihtiyacı da ortadan kalkmaktadır. Ayrıca, mikrodalga kurutma yapılan ürünlerde kopma ve yırtılma testlerinde, standart kurutma yapılan ürünlere benzer değerler elde edilmiştir.</p> 2023-04-24T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Advanced Natural Sciences and Engineering Researches https://as-proceeding.com/index.php/ijanser/article/view/545 KIDNEY STONE DETECTION AND CLASSIFICATION BASED ON DEEP LEARNING APPROACH 2023-04-24T22:56:51+03:00 Musa Genemo musa.ju2002@gmail.com <p>Kidney stones are the most common disease, resulting in so many deaths. Early kidney stone detection is essential for minimizing death rates. Early detection and treatment are crucial in the fight against kidney stones. Applying machine learning techniques reduces the workload on physicians while reducing risk and improving diagnostic accuracy. We proposed detection methods in this work that can recognize kidney stones in endoscopy images. For the identification and classification of kidney stones, we suggested five 3D-CNN models. The first three models are used to detect kidney stones; each model has an eight-layer convolutional neural network (CNN-8), while the final two models use a six-layer convolutional neural network (CNN-6) to classify kidney stones. A novel dataset of 1000 images has been collected from various hospitals in Ethiopia. A training set of 0.8 and a testing set of 0.2 were formed from the dataset. The accuracy scores for the 3D-CNN models were 0.985. The novel models produced encouraging outcomes.

EM Technology means technology using Active Microorganisms. EM is not composed of a single microorganism, but a mixture of various groups of microorganisms. It has a positive and healthy effect on people, animals, and nature. EM is effective in both aerobic and anaerobic conditions. For this reason, it would be beneficial to apply it at all stages of treatment in conventional wastewater treatment systems, except for the biological reactor. When used in EM-activated wastewater, various compounds are formed that may be beneficial for wastewater (enzymes with high hydrolytic activity and some antioxidant substances). These compounds together with EM microorganisms provide high-capacity purification of wastewater. As a result of analyses using EM, it is seen that the desired values are achieved. Heavy metal determination is made in Çankırı wastewater and water treated with EM using an ICP-OES device at a lower detection limit (LOD) value of the device at ppm level. As a result of treatment with EM, it has been determined that a high concentration of strontium fell to the lower detection limit. This result shows that EM has an effective role in removing heavy metals. It has been seen that the use of EM in wastewater is extremely beneficial in terms of eliminating bad odors, increasing the sedimentation rate of organic matter, and reducing chemical oxygen demand (COD), biochemical oxygen demand (BOD), and suspended solids amount (SSM). Besides, ionization is suppressed by the anti-oxidation effect. When EM is used, the operating cost will be lower as O<sub>2</sub> consumption can be reduced. Since the water will still contain EM microorganisms after being treated, it is thought that wherever it is discharged from the wastewater plant to nature, a great improvement will be observed in terms of vegetation and the environment.</p> 2023-04-25T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Advanced Natural Sciences and Engineering Researches https://as-proceeding.com/index.php/ijanser/article/view/551 Reducing Maintenance Cost of Concrete Structure Jetty, Piping & Fuel Tank using Mambo3 (Material Admixture Bamboo Fiber with Honeycomb Configuration MOR 3) at Fuel Terminal Tanjung Gerem 2023-04-25T13:33:55+03:00 Much Arif Amrulloh much.arif.amr@gmail.com Iqbal Dias Prima much.arif.amr@gmail.com Digby Febri Ardyansah much.arif.amr@gmail.com <p>PT Pertamina Patra Niaga West Java Region is an investment implementation function based on the budget written in RKAP of each period.

Güneş enerjisi elektrik santrallerinin kurulması, bu enerji ihtiyaçlarının karşılanması açısından önem arz etmektedir. Birçok ülkede PV elektrik üretimi santrallerinin kurumları ilk dönemlerini yaşamaktadır.

The goal of this study is to analyse the usage patterns and future value perceptions of ChatGPT among 70 high school students through a survey-based approach. A key finding highlights that technology has become an integral element of contemporary life, underscoring the historical relevance of Natural Language Processing (NLP) and the eagerness of the younger generation to adopt such emerging technologies. High school students utilise ChatGPT for various purposes, including academic support, social communication, and personal management, across both educational and social contexts. Moreover, the participants conveyed a positive outlook on the potential of ChatGPT to significantly impact their lives in the coming years while acknowledging possible hurdles. Based on the findings of this study, it is clear that NLP tools like ChatGPT have a crucial role in moulding the experiences and anticipations of high school students.

Industry 4.0 is about the integration of advanced digital technologies into manufacturing and other industrial processes, while Education 4.0 is about the integration of technology, in particular digital technologies, into the teaching and learning process. The relationship between Industry 4.0 and Education 4.0 is mutually reinforcing. Education 4.0 aims to prepare learners for the demands of the 21st century workforce by equipping them with the skills and knowledge they need to thrive in a rapidly changing digital environment. The development of computational thinking skills is a key component of Education 4.0, as it is a foundational skill that underpins many of the digital technologies used in industry today. Computational thinking is a problem-solving approach that involves breaking complex problems into smaller, more manageable parts, identifying patterns and relationships, and creating algorithms to solve problems. Microcontrollers, also known as embedded systems, are small computers used to control electronic devices such as home appliances, cars and toys.&nbsp; Visualisation is an important tool in teaching about microcontrollers because it helps students understand abstract concepts and see how different components fit together. Visualisation helps students to gain a deeper understanding of how microcontrollers work and how electronic devices are controlled. This understanding can be particularly valuable for students who want to pursue a career in fields such as engineering, robotics or computer science.&nbsp;</p> 2023-05-04T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Advanced Natural Sciences and Engineering Researches https://as-proceeding.com/index.php/ijanser/article/view/564 Considerations on Utilizing the Object-Oriented Paradigm in the Development of an MRP-based Production Planning SystemConsiderations on Utilizing the Object-Oriented Paradigm in the Development of an MRP-based Production Planning System 2023-05-04T16:21:18+03:00 Mihály Szilárd Avornicului udvaros.jozsef@uni-bge.hu József Udvaros udvaros.jozsef@uni-bge.hu Norbert Forman udvaros.jozsef@uni-bge.hu <p>Manufacturing companies today face an increasingly dynamic environment. Development of production planning systems requires approaches that offer flexibility in development of solutions. Applying the UML (Unified Modeling Language) and MDA (Model Driven Architecture) paradigm can ensure compatibility between applications developed on different platforms. The MDA approach to software development becomes an obvious choice. In this approach, the models drive the process of software development. These models are defined at different levels of abstraction to represent various aspects of the system. The transformation of models from one level of abstraction to another, or the transformation of models to executable code is performed by using automated transformation tools. The strength of MDA lies in the fact that it is based on widely used industry standards for visualizing, storing and exchanging software designs and models. The models in MDA are abstracted at three different levels – the Computation Independent Model (CIM), the Platform Independent Model (PIM) and the Platform Specific Model (PSM).&nbsp; The key to the success of MDA lies in automated or semi-automated model-to-model and model-to-code transformations. In this paper, we examine how a platform-independent model of an MRP-based production planning system can be created using MDA approach, from which several platform-specific systems can be achieved, as required.&nbsp;</p> 2023-05-04T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Advanced Natural Sciences and Engineering Researches https://as-proceeding.com/index.php/ijanser/article/view/565 UWB Microstrip Patch Antenna Design for Energy Harvesting Applications 2023-05-04T17:08:41+03:00 Beyza Kanboz beyzakanboz5@gmail.com Merih Palandoken beyzakanboz5@gmail.com <p>RF energy harvesting systems, which are the receiver part of Wireless Power Transfer (WPT), have gained significant development in recent years. For maximum energy acquisition over a wide frequency range, such as to provide power to small handheld devices like cell phones, tablets, smart watches, and other smart devices, wideband and compact antennas are desired. RF systems are expected to cover different frequency bands, such as 2.4 GHz, 5.1 GHz, 5.8 GHz (Bluetooth/Wi-Fi), 2.3 GHz, 2.5 GHz, 3.5 GHz, 5 GHz (WiMAX), for energy harvesting. For such an RF harvesting system, the antenna is desired to have a wide bandwidth, good gain, and an omnidirectional radiation pattern. Energy harvesting devices refer to designs that integrate production and storage. For instance, radio frequency energy sources contain a large amount of electromagnetic energy in the environment, and with RF energy harvesting systems, a portion of this electromagnetic energy can be collected and converted into usable DC voltage. Microstrip patch antennas are very good alternatives for energy harvesting applications because they are cost-effective, compact in size and weight, flat in structure, and highly repeatable. This paper presents a microstrip patch antenna with a bandwidth of 3.9 GHz in the 3.4 to 7.3 GHz range for UWB applications. The antenna design has a gain value of 3.28dBi at the numerically calculated resonance frequency of 4.9 GHz and generally covers frequencies used for electronic device communication such as Wi-Fi 5 GHz and WiMAX. The proposed antenna design has gain values that are allowed to be used for RF energy harvesting applications.</p> 2023-05-04T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Advanced Natural Sciences and Engineering Researches https://as-proceeding.com/index.php/ijanser/article/view/566 ns-3 Ağ Simülatörü ile OpenSSL Kütüphanesinin Entegre Edilmesi ve Bir Kimliği Doğrulanmış Şifrelemenin Uygulanması 2023-05-04T17:20:15+03:00 Samet Tonyalı samet.tonyali@gumushane.edu.tr <p>Güvenlik, günümüz iletişim teknolojilerinin olmazsa olmazlarındandır.

The units of the study area are Middle Devonian-Lower Cretaceous Keban Metamorphics, Upper Cretaceous Elazığ Magmatics, Upper Maastrichtian-Paleocene Seske Formation, Middle Eocene-Upper Oligocene Kırkgeçit Formation and Quaternary cover units. The study area crops out in a local area within the Hısırık creek in the north of Sarıgül village of Baskil county, which is located in the west of Elazig province in Southeast Turkey. Elazig magmatic complex contains plutonic and sub-volcanic rocks, mainly felsic and mafic compositions. Plutonic rocks with felsic composition include granite, granodiorite, tonalite and quartz monzonites, while sub-volcanic rocks include aplite. Plutonic rocks with mafic composition are represented by diorite, quartz diorite, gabbro and orbicular gabbro, and sub-volcanic rocks are represented by diabase and diorite porphyries.&nbsp; The orbicular gabbros contain orbicles ranging in size from 1 cm to 15 cm, formed by repetitive concentric circles of fine and coarse grains. All these orbicles consist of concentric circles that show magmatic textures both in macro specimens and under the microscope. Orbicular circles were formed by the crystallisation of basic magma in the form of a circular texture by conventional repetition as a result of adding a basic new magma that was later included in the magma chamber during the crystallisation of basic magma. Mineralogical and petrographic features suggest that the orbicular gabbro is part of mafic igneous enclaves within intrusive mafic rocks.</p> 2023-05-08T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Advanced Natural Sciences and Engineering Researches https://as-proceeding.com/index.php/ijanser/article/view/641 Preliminary Findings of Fe-Skarn Mineralization in Southeast Anatolian Orogenic Belt (Pertek, Tunceli) 2023-05-08T09:26:47+03:00 Cihan Yalçın cihan.yalcin@sanayi.gov.tr Hatice Kara cihan.yalcin@sanayi.gov.tr Mehmet Ali Ertürk cihan.yalcin@sanayi.gov.tr Leyla Kalender cihan.yalcin@sanayi.gov.tr Mustafa Kumral cihan.yalcin@sanayi.gov.tr <p>The Southeast Anatolian Orogenic Belt (SAOB), one of the most important belts in Turkey, is located north of the Bitlis-Zagros Suture Zone. Major iron mineralizations are also observed along this belt. The Pertek (Tunceli) region is one of the dominant Fe-Skarn mineralizations. Keban Metamorphites of Permo-Carboniferous age forms the basement of the region. It is mainly represented by metacarbonates, marbles and schists, respectively. This unit is also cut by intrusive rocks from the Upper Cretaceous Elazığ Magmatic Complex (EMC). Tertiary volcanic rocks and sedimentary rocks also overlie both units with angular unconformity. Fe-Skarn was formed at the contact of carbonates belonging to Keban Metamorphites and diorites belonging to EMC. Macroscopically, magnetite crystals and garnet can be observed in the skarn formation, which is easily distinguished by its colour. Polarizing microscopy revealed quartz, calcite, garnet, pyroxene, chlorite and opaque minerals. X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis revealed that the garnet is andraditic, and the ore minerals are magnetite and hematite. In the ore microscopy, it was determined that magnetite was first transformed into hematite and then hematite into goethite. Regarding the major oxide concentrations of the samples taken from the region, it was determined that the Fe<sub>2</sub>O<sub>3</sub> value reached a maximum of 60% (average 21.94%), SiO<sub>2</sub> (average 38.20%) and CaO (average 23.58%) concentrations were high, and Al<sub>2</sub>O<sub>3</sub> concentration was generally low.

The usage areas of phenol formaldehyde resins are getting more and more widespread. Composite materials are being developed by using them together with fibrous biomass sources. Besides, industrial wastes or inorganic fillers are also supplemented with phenol formaldehyde resin. While phenol formaldehyde-based composites are produced, wastes causing environmental pollution are evaluated and some properties of the composites are improved according to the purpose of use. Generally, organic fiber biomass wastes improve the mechanical properties of phenol formaldehyde-based composites. Inorganic industrial wastes also improve both the thermal stability and non-flammability of composites. Reinforcing materials used as fillers interact physically with phenol formaldehyde-based composites. However, biomass sources can also form chemical bonds with some modification processes. To reduce the use of petrochemical components in phenol formaldehyde-based composites, bioraw material syntheses have been carried out. Thus, new generation composites are being developed that are both environmentally friendly and have a low carbon footprint. Moreover, the reinforcement of hard-to-recycle plastics into phenol formaldehyde increases the workability of the composites.</p> 2023-05-09T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Advanced Natural Sciences and Engineering Researches https://as-proceeding.com/index.php/ijanser/article/view/644 Productivity Prediction of Garment Employees using Multiple Linear Regression 2023-05-09T13:23:51+03:00 Yann Ling Goh gohyl@utar.edu.my Chern Long Ng gohyl@utar.edu.my Raymond Ling Leh Bin gohyl@utar.edu.my <p>This paper presents a multiple linear curve fitting method for finding how the change of manipulated variables affect the final result using productivity prediction of garment employees data set.

In addition, the by-products of the combustion of these fuels cause environmental problems. This situation, which threatens the world, has led to the search for new energy sources. Hydrogen, as an energy carrier, creates a potential for solving these problems. Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe, with the highest energy content per weight of all conventional fuels. But unlike conventional fuels, hydrogen is not easily found in nature and is produced from primary energy sources. Therefore, it is a renewable fuel. When used in a fuel cell, only water is produced as a by-product. From this point of view, when compared to any fuel, it stands out as a fuel with the highest energy content and does not contain carbon. The biggest problem in using hydrogen gas as a fuel is that it is not found in nature and economically cheap production methods are needed. Hydrogen can be produced in two different ways, biological and chemical. Chemical methods are not preferred because they are costly. Biological methods, on the other hand, are low-cost, sustainable, environmentally friendly methods. In this study, information of hydrogen energy and its historical development is given. Thus, a projection is made for the importance and future of hydrogen energy. Then, hydrogen production methods are explained and compared.

However, composites with desired properties differ in each sector. Fiber reinforcement and matrix selection vary depending on application requirements. Composites consisting of reinforcement and matrix elements are classified according to these elements. Chopped fiber reinforced composites, which are included in the classification depending on the reinforcement element, have a wide range of applications. Apart from lightness, it has many advantages, such as high strength, high rigidity, low thermal conductivity, corrosion resistance, and ease of production. Their lower cost of production compared to other composites makes them attractive. It is very important to make various characterizations of these composites in order to improve their properties and expand their use in the places where they are used. Researchers have done many studies on this subject. In this article, a review of the studies is presented. Various mechanical and thermal tests and their results were examined.

The apparent viscosities of pomegranate peel solutions prepared with distilled water are measured by a rotational viscometer. The viscosity of the pomegranate peel solution at each concentration is measured at shear rates varying between 2.64 s<sup>-1</sup> and 22 s<sup>-1</sup> at constant temperature (25 °C). When the effect of concentration on apparent viscosity has been examined, it is observed that the viscosity rises with increasing concentration at a constant shear rate. Among the rheological models studied, Power model provides a good fit for the experimental viscosity data of aqueous solutions of pomegranate peel powder at different concentrations. The consistency coefficient and the flow behavior index are calculated using the power law model and the solutions have been found to exhibit pseudoplastic behavior.</p> 2023-05-10T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Advanced Natural Sciences and Engineering Researches https://as-proceeding.com/index.php/ijanser/article/view/650 Optimal Time Intervals Between Personal Mammogram Test Decisions 2023-05-10T01:21:32+03:00 Muhammed Sütçü muhammed.sutcu@agu.edu.tr <p>Excluding skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in women in the United States, accounting for one in three diagnosed cases. A woman's chance of developing invasive breast cancer in her lifetime is approximately 1 in 8 (12%). While mammography has been effective in early detection, its use has resulted in a minor increase in the number of in situ cancers detected. However, mammography carries potential risks, such as exposure to unnecessary radiation, additional costs, psychological stress, and the possibility of false-positive results. Although the American Cancer Society recommends annual testing, it may be unnecessary for healthy women. In this paper, we aim to find the optimal interval between mammogram tests, balancing the benefits and risks of testing while reducing the false-positive rate and number of tests. To achieve this, we use decision trees, utility theory, and Bayes' theorem to calculate the quality-adjusted life years (QALYs) of patients.&nbsp;</p> 2023-05-10T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Advanced Natural Sciences and Engineering Researches https://as-proceeding.com/index.php/ijanser/article/view/701 Increasing Annual Profit of Wind Farm Using Improved Genetic Algorithm 2023-05-13T11:27:18+03:00 Prasun Bhattacharjee prasunbhatta@gmail.com Somenath Bhattacharya prasunbhatta@gmail.com <p>Wind energy, a prominent renewable source of energy, has expanded rapidly in the past few decades. This paper focuses on raising the yearly profit of a possible wind farm in the Kayathar area of India using an enhanced genetic algorithm. Novel dynamic techniques for assigning the probabilities of crossover and mutation operations have been applied for the genetic algorithm-based optimization method along with the conventional static approach. Non-linear functions have been applied for dynamically allocating the crossover and mutation factors for the genetic algorithm-based optimization process. The analysis outcomes of the proposed technique have been compared with the solutions attained by the genetic algorithm with the standard static approach of allocating the crossover and mutation factors. The evaluation outcomes confirm the superiority of the novel non-linearly incrementing methodology over the non-linearly decrementing and static approach of allocating the crossover and mutation probabilities for attaining a more optimal annual profit.&nbsp;</p> 2023-05-13T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Advanced Natural Sciences and Engineering Researches https://as-proceeding.com/index.php/ijanser/article/view/702 Investıgation of Drying Methods of Tarhana Produced in Çankırı Region by Taguchi Method 2023-05-13T11:52:26+03:00 Rana Başataç zaltin@karatekin.edu.tr Zehra Gülten Yalçın zaltin@karatekin.edu.tr Fatma Jale Gülen zaltin@karatekin.edu.tr <p>In this study, the drying behaviour of tarhana consumed in Çankırı region was investigated with various drying methods and optimum drying conditions were determined using experimental Taguchi design method. Solar, conventional oven and microwave oven methods were used for drying purposes. Different temperatures and microwave powers were used in the ovens and tarhana was also dried under sun light. The effective drying parameters were examined concerning the tarhana in the thickness and varying drying period. The data obtained were subjected to variance analysis. Statistical significance was determined in terms of strength, temperature, thickness and time parameters. Conventional oven drying optimization was found to be more successful with the lower p value than 0.01. After drying, tarhana was analysed from humidity, ash, protein and colour values.

The static learning material belongs to the multitude. Increasingly widespread artificial intelligence and other innovative technologies are facilitating the roll-out of personalized curricula and interactive learning materials. The trend in education is towards digitalisation and the appropriate use of information communication tools. Our research explores the importance, advantages and emerging disadvantages of digital learning materials. Furthermore, as a result of a quantitative survey of students, it is based on the interactive digitisation of learning materials using virtual models. Pupils, regardless of their level of education, demand digital learning materials and the use of information and communication tools in class, as Generation Z and Alpha are growing up with these tools. Educational establishments should therefore not restrict or prohibit the use of these tools, but should find ways of effectively integrating them into the classroom. Our aim is to motivate educators to increasingly complement traditional paper-based static learning materials with interactive digital learning materials. We have also worked to create interactive three-dimensional models for students to motivate and explore within the biology subject to support the teaching process. In summary, our article points out the importance of a certain degree of digitalisation of curricula and presents a model for possible future developments in contrast to static learning materials.&nbsp;</p> 2023-05-13T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Advanced Natural Sciences and Engineering Researches https://as-proceeding.com/index.php/ijanser/article/view/705 Industry 4.0 from the perspective of Education 4.0 2023-05-15T15:00:38+03:00 József Udvaros udvaros.jozsef@uni-bge.hu Miklós Gubán udvaros.jozsef@uni-bge.hu Ákos Gubán udvaros.jozsef@uni-bge.hu Ágnes Sándor udvaros.jozsef@uni-bge.hu <p>Industry 4.0, or the fourth industrial revolution, means the automation of industrial processes, digitalization and the use of data in order to increase the efficiency and quality of production processes. Industry 4.0 also affects other areas of the economy, as well as education. The concept of Education 4.0 strives to modernize and apply education to the age of Industry 4.0 using new technologies and methods.</p> <p>The main goal of Education 4.0 is to prepare students for the challenges of Industry 4.0 and to give them skills and knowledge that they will need in the digital age. This new educational model is no longer only about the transfer of information, but also focuses on developing students' abilities and renewing their problem-solving skills. Education for student-centered education aims to increase student motivation, develop individual skills and improve learning outcomes.</p> <p>To implement Education 4.0, educational institutions need to provide the infrastructure and infrastructure that enables students to use digital technologies and virtual learning.

Many small businesses initially use different software and applications to manage each business process, such as separate programs for invoicing, finance, sales, etc. However, these programs are not integrated with each other, which can cause problems such as data loss between different databases, errors caused by manual data entry, and time-consuming manual processes.</p> <p>However, ERP systems provide a single, integrated system that connects all important business processes, reducing data loss and errors. With the help of an ERP system, businesses can manage finances more efficiently, implement more consistent sales and marketing strategies, better plan and organize production and logistics processes, and manage human resources more effectively.</p> <p>However, ERP systems also have some disadvantages, such as implementation costs and time-consuming implementation. In addition, businesses should choose an ERP system according to the number of their staff and the complexity of their processes to best suit their needs.</p> <p>The efficient operation of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and the growth of their performance is facilitated by the use of various technologies/techniques.

The European Union strives to create a favorable business environment for them. Considering either Romania or Hungary, more than 94% of the entire corporate sector is made up of small and medium-sized enterprises. In our century, computer technology seeped into the Internet almost unnoticed. The innovations brought by computer technology have a great impact on businesses as well. The focus of the study is an (internet) strategy that provides new opportunities for small and medium-sized enterprises. Today, we can almost say that there is no separate "Internet strategy", just simply strategy, since computing technology is everywhere, it is difficult to separate it from sales, marketing and other company functions.</p> <p>The corporate strategy defines the company's (organization, enterprise) long-term (shorter-term, depending on market conditions) goals, the methods, tools, and opportunities necessary to achieve them, which determine its scope of operation. Related to this is the process of strategic planning, which considers, evaluates and decides on the programs and projects that must be implemented in order to achieve the set goals.</p> <p>The corporate strategy is the set of concepts that designate the company's long-term goals, allocate resources to the goals to the extent necessary to achieve them, determine the directions of development, and the framework for the realization of the goals.

While the surface analysis of nickel coating at different temperatures was conducted by optical microscopy and white light interferometer (WLI). The obtained results show that the Ni layers have been deposited successfully on the Cu substrates. It was found that raising the bath temperature to 55 °C leads to smoother, dense, compact and recovering Ni coatings with a grain size of 0.024 nm and 0.294 µm as average roughness, which is mainly due to Ni grain refinement.

Blockchain technology has taken centre stage in recent years. The range of blockchain and distributed ledger technologies (DLT) has great potential to create an infrastructure for reliable, decentralised and unmediated services beyond the financial sector. In logistics, blockchain-centric solutions are being sought to perform infocommunications activities with distributed databases. Business users expect a leap in efficiency and speed in the execution of their daily processes. Blockchains can be used to take digitisation and monitoring to a higher level. However, the question is how this can be used in everyday life. How to acquire the right digital competences, how to make complex systems. We can see that ICT is also making progress in the field of education. It is important to build and develop digital competences. The European Union has also recognised the importance of this area and has launched a testing system. In this paper, we briefly describe the functioning of the blockchain.

Reka arianit.reka@unite.edu.mk Agim Shabani arianit.reka@unite.edu.mk <p>Trihalomethanes (THMs) are created as a result of the reaction between chlorine used to disinfect drinking water and natural organic matter in water. At high levels, THMs have been associated with cancer. As a consequence, THMs must be constantly monitored. They are mainly determined by the method of gas chromatography, which is a more difficult procedure and at a higher cost. In recent years, however, mathematical models have been used to predict THMs. These models work by measuring some physico-chemical parameters of drinking water, those values ​​of these parameters are replaced in mathematical models and the THMs content in drinking water can be predicted. The main purpose of this paper was to predict the content of THMs in the drinking water of the city of Kumanova. The measured parameters were: temperature, residual chlorine, pH, electrical conductivity, chemical oxygen, total dissolved solids and chlorides. Measurements were made during the spring season 2022 in the four sampling points. Ten mathematical models were used for prediction and of them the average value with standard deviation of THM was 26.9532 ± 10.03 μg/L. From the result we can conclude that content of THM does not pose a risk to the health of the population.</p> 2023-05-19T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Advanced Natural Sciences and Engineering Researches https://as-proceeding.com/index.php/ijanser/article/view/716 Kur’an-i Kerim ve Kitab-i Mukaddeste Hukuki Açidan Aileye Bakiş 2023-05-19T00:53:23+03:00 Hysni Skura hskura@beder.edu.al <p>Kutsal kitaplar, insanlar arasındaki ilişkileri ve aile yapısını düzenleyen hukuki prensipleri içermektedir.

This change is accompanied by the introduction of new didactic concepts such as blended learning, which combines the advantages of face-to-face and online learning with the use of digital teaching tools that can help develop the desired competences.

But this is not always due to people's reluctance and indifference. There are also objective reasons. Many cultural monuments cannot be maintained because of property rights and other intentions of the owners, sometimes because of lack of funds or because of political reasons - after the change of political regime there is no longer a strong motivation to protect and maintain the cultural monuments of the past regime. These monuments are slowly disappearing and are inevitably being gnawed by the ravages of time. This situation has not been helped by the COVID 19 pandemic, and it is not helped by the current post-pandemic era. The modern age and the modern technologies it has brought with it, even in the area of heritage protection, can be of great help to us. Everyday devices such as mobile phones, tablets and other ICT devices, which can be used to create 3D models without the need for professional equipment, are a good tool for preserving cultural heritage in digital form for an almost indefinite period of time. Therefore, this possibility is becoming accessible to the general public, even to individuals. We are already witnessing a rapid expansion of computer science and it can therefore be assumed (as our own experience has already taught us) that what we cannot currently complete or process perfectly, we may be able to do in the future. It therefore makes sense to address this issue. It is not always necessary to create a perfect model of a large building, but sometimes it is enough to preserve, for example, one wall, a fresco or a part of a real monument. And this is the area we will focus on in our paper.</p> 2023-05-20T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Advanced Natural Sciences and Engineering Researches https://as-proceeding.com/index.php/ijanser/article/view/719 A Simplified read to Derrida’s Grammatology, Deconstruction in The Workhouse Ward for Lady Gregory 2023-05-20T12:29:50+03:00 Yahya Kamal Mohammad Mostafa yahya.kamal.mohammad.mostafa@ogr.dpu.edu.tr <p>The year 1967 was the publication Of Grammatology by the French philosopher Jacques Derrida.

Karbon-nötr olma hedefini amaçlayan Avrupa Komisyonu 2019 yılında Avrupa Yeşil Mutabakatı anlaşmasını imzalamıştır. Ülkemizde de 2021 yılında imzalanan Yeşil Mutabakat,&nbsp; 2050 yılına kadar karbon emisyonundan arınmayı hedeflemektedir. Avrupa Mutabakatı kapsamında da kullanımının ve etkilerinin araştırılması yaygınlaşan elektrikli araçlar günümüzde de oldukça ilgi görmeye başlamıştır. Sera gazı azaltım hedefleri konusunda önemli katkı sunacağı düşünülen elektrikli araçların yaşam döngüsü değerlendirmesi yoluyla tüm çevresel etkileri belirlenerek değerlendirme ve yorumlama aşamaları sonunda elde edilmektedir. Çalışmada incelenen bazı literatür sonuçlarında bu araçların çevresel etkileriyle ilgili farklı sonuçlar olduğu görülmüştür. Elektrikli araçların sera gazı emisyonuna neden olan temel faktörün aracın üretim aşamasında ortaya çıktığı görülmüştür. Ancak mevcut durumun iyileştirilmesi için yapılacak yeni çalışmalar ve farklı teknolojik gelişmelerle bu etkilerin azaltılabileceği düşünülmektedir. Ülkemizde ve dünyada hem döngüsel ekonomi hem de elektrikli araçlara geçiş konusunda önemli katkı sağlayacak adımlar atılmakta ve politika çalışmaları yakından takip edilmektedir.</p> 2023-05-20T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Advanced Natural Sciences and Engineering Researches https://as-proceeding.com/index.php/ijanser/article/view/724 The importance of databases in web programming 2023-05-22T02:26:39+03:00 Najdovski Blagojche blagojce.najdovski@uklo.edu.mk Gordana Dimitrovska blagojce.najdovski@uklo.edu.mk Elena Joshevska blagojce.najdovski@uklo.edu.mk <p>Databases are fundamental when working with web applications.

However, the task of ensuring the security of the Internet and its associated applications remains an ongoing research challenge. Researchers persistently delve into the exploration of innovative network architectures, such as the utilization of HTTP as the narrow waist, the implementation of Named Data Networking (NDN), the development of programmable networks, and the adoption of Software-Defined Networking (SDN), with the aim of designing a more dependable and resilient network infrastructure. Among these alternative approaches, SDN has emerged as a robust and secure solution for countering malicious activities. By separating the control plane from the data plane, SDN provides an array of advantages, including enhanced manageability, improved control, dynamic rule updates, advanced analysis capabilities, and a comprehensive network overview facilitated by a centralized controller. Despite its superiority over conventional IP-based networks, SDN is susceptible to various network intrusions and encounters significant challenges in terms of deployment. The purpose of this paper is to conduct a comprehensive review of approximately 70 prominent mechanisms employed for the detection and mitigation of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks in SDN networks. These mechanisms are systematically categorized into four main groups, namely information theory-based methods, machine learning-based methods, approaches based on Artificial Neural Networks (ANN), and other miscellaneous methods. Furthermore, the paper identifies and discusses several unresolved research issues and gaps that exist in the deployment of a secure DDoS defense solution within SDN networks. The objective of this comprehensive review is to provide valuable insights to the research community, assisting in the development of more robust and reliable DDoS mitigation solutions that are specifically tailored for SDN networks.</p> 2023-05-22T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Advanced Natural Sciences and Engineering Researches https://as-proceeding.com/index.php/ijanser/article/view/737 Design and Management of a Photovoltaic Pumping System 2023-05-25T10:51:18+03:00 Layate Zakaria z.layate@univ-dbkm.dz Bahi Tahar z.layate@univ-dbkm.dz <p>Solar energy is recognized as one of the most important renewable alternatives to electricity, especially in remote areas where solar energy is not available due to high line costs.

However, the intermittent nature of these resources poses challenges in terms of harmonics, power factor and power quality. This paper focuses on the use of multi-pulse rectifiers (MPR) as a solution for enhancing the performance and grid integration of renewable energy resources. A novel approach is introduced, combining a phase-shifting transformer that provides a five-phase input to a series of 20-pulse rectifiers with a pulse-tripling circuit (PPTC). By modulating the resultant currents of bridge rectifiers with PPTC, the rectifier’s pulse number is raised from 20 to 60, resulting in enhanced reduction of input current harmonics. The proposed rectifier configuration achieves an input current with an approximate sinusoidal waveform, exhibiting a Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) of less than 4%. The proposed scheme offers several advantages. It is simple, utilizing only passive components without the need for active devices, making it easy to implement, improving the performance of rectifier, ensuring compliance with power quality standards, and enabling reliable operation in medium- and high-voltage electronic systems.</p> 2023-05-25T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Advanced Natural Sciences and Engineering Researches https://as-proceeding.com/index.php/ijanser/article/view/739 Chatbots in Education: The impact of Artificial Intelligence based ChatGPT on Teachers and Students 2023-05-25T11:34:02+03:00 Norbert Annuš annusn@ujs.sk <p>The assimilation of artificial intelligence into education is an inevitable phenomenon.

These difficulties include the high cost of conventional devices, poor accessibility, and the requirement for repeated trips to the doctor. The system enables patients to remotely monitor their vital signs and receive real-time notifications in case of any irregularities, making it a more affordable and accessible option than traditional monitoring equipment. As a result, patients will require fewer trips to the hospital, increasing accessibility and convenience of healthcare. In case of any irregularities or trends that call for medical attention, the system also provides continuous monitoring, ensuring prompt care. The low-cost IoT-based remote cardiovascular patient monitoring system has the potential to revolutionize the way healthcare is provided, particularly in situations with limited resources. It does this by offering patients with cardiovascular problems constant, affordable, and accessible monitoring. Additionally, it can lessen the strain on medical facilities, freeing up resources and enabling healthcare professionals to concentrate on cases that are more urgent. This system is therefore necessary due to the drawbacks of conventional monitoring devices, and it can address the issues of limited accessibility and cost-effectiveness by giving patients a more practical and effective way to monitor their vital signs and receive prompt medical care.</p> 2023-05-25T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Advanced Natural Sciences and Engineering Researches https://as-proceeding.com/index.php/ijanser/article/view/754 Modeling COVID-19 Binary Data in the Aspect of Neoplasms as a Potential Indicator of Cancer by Logit and Probit Regression Models 2023-05-26T14:01:52+03:00 Neslihan İyit niyit@selcuk.edu.tr Esra Sarı niyit@selcuk.edu.tr Ferhat Sevim niyit@selcuk.edu.tr <p>In this study, the effects of disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) from neoplasms and concomitant non-communicable diseases (NCDs) on total deaths from the COVID-19 pandemic until 21 July 2021 are examined globally for 179 countries. For this purpose, the explanatory variables are taken as DALYs as a measure of total burden of diseases in life lost years and lived with a disability years from neoplasm and NCDs. In this study, the total number of deaths caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has been made categorical with the help of the indicator variable and then taken as the response variable. Thus, in this study, the effects of neoplasms and concomitant NCDs on the COVID-19 pandemic are investigated by using binary logit and binary probit regression models in the family of generalized linear models (GLMs) as statistical methods. Specific to this study, the superiority of the probit model which is based on the assumption that the errors have a normal distribution in the statistical sense over the logit model which is based on the assumption that the errors have a logistic distribution is emphasized.

Volumetric pumps are generally used to transport hydraulic oils, while centrifugal pumps are used to transport clean or dirty water. Pumps are the tools that are used to move liquid fluids from one place to another in many areas like as cars, industry, construction sites, agriculture, and homes. Therefore, determination of the hydraulic pump’s characteristics under various working conditions, including manometric head, overall efficiency, specific speed, and net positive suction head, is crucial for development, operational limitations, and durability. Experimental investigation is a more realistic method, although it is possible to determine the hydraulic pump characteristics by means of mathematical methods. Therefore, an experimental investigation is performed for the determination of the centrifugal pump characteristics in this study by using an experimental setup. The findings indicate that the hydraulic power given to the water and the electrical power used by the pump both increase up to a particular flow rate and then decline. Additionally, it is found that manometric head of the pump falls even as the overall flow losses rise as the flow rate rises. On the other hand, overall efficiency of the pump enhances at the specific flow rate and then it reduces with the increased flow rate while specific speed of the pump varies about linearly. Moreover, it is finally noticed that the tested centrifugal pump works in cavitations at all flow rates.</p> 2023-05-26T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Advanced Natural Sciences and Engineering Researches https://as-proceeding.com/index.php/ijanser/article/view/756 BLDC Motor Controller Design For Light Cars Aiming Safety Driving 2023-05-26T14:47:48+03:00 Göktürk Koçaş gokturk.kocas@gmail.com Bayram Akdemir bakdemir@ktun.edu.tr <p>This study investigates the Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) signal management techniques used in electric vehicles and how battery heat control is performed.

The price of electricity is highly volatile, nonlinear, and subject to seasonal fluctuations. The price series is also affected by electrical market uncertainty and demand, which is strongly reliant on weather and electricity usage time. This study presents a short-term electricity price forecasting method that follows the similar days approach comprising Ensemble Empirical Mode Decomposition technique. The suggested method utilizes a feature selection methodology that combines the Random Forest Regressor and the Gradient Boosting Regressor to determine which features are most important for the machine learning model. To forecast the electricity price, a Gated Recurrent Unit Neural Network (GRU-NN) is employed as the machine learning model. The GRU-NN has the capability of accurately capturing complicated temporal relationships in electricity price time series, which enables it to make correct predictions. To evaluate the validity of the proposed method, data from the PJM electricity market have been used. The simulation results demonstrate that the suggested method is superior to the existing technique, with significantly improved values achieved for both the mean absolute percentage error (MAPE) and the root mean square error (RMSE).&nbsp;</p> 2023-05-27T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Advanced Natural Sciences and Engineering Researches https://as-proceeding.com/index.php/ijanser/article/view/773 Impact of the Size of Data on the Reliability of Short-Term Load Forecasting Using LSTM and GRU 2023-05-27T02:26:55+03:00 Abdullah Ashraf abdullah.ashraf@students.uettaxila.edu.pk Shaikh Saaqib Haroon abdullah.ashraf@students.uettaxila.edu.pk <p>Load forecasting has been an important aspect of power system operations and with the increase in integration of renewable energy resources in the main grid, the procedure is now more vital than ever.
