Effect of Microgravity on Nucleolar Protein Contents and Regulation of Plant Cell Division

Halimeh Hassanpour

Volume 4, Issue 4 , February 2021, Pages 19-11

  Living organisms have evolved in the presence of constant gravity (1g) on Earth and their growth is related to rate of ribosome, protein biosynthesis, and regulation of cell cycle phases. Microgravity does not have the same effects on different phases of cell cycle such that activity of some phases is ...  Read More

Model Predictive Control Based on Intelligent Model for Low Earth Orbit Satellite

Taha Yasini; Jafar Roshanian; Shahin Darvishpour

Volume 4, Issue 4 , February 2021, Pages 31-41

  In this paper, an orbit control algorithm is implemented for low earth orbit (LEO) satellites, using artificial neural networks (ANN), model-based predictive control (MPC), and linear quadratic regulator (LQR). As a self-tuning regulator structure, an ANN is used to learn the model of the satellite with ...  Read More
