Scientific achievements of the staff

In 2010-2014  the department has carried out two important state budgetary themes: in 2015 – No. 273-2 “Adaptive methods and models of data classification and forecasting time series provided they are distorted by missing and abnormal observations based on artificial immune systems” and in 2012-2014 – No. 267-3 “Development of an experimental sample of a system for processing and visualizing information obtained as a result of the interaction of the electromagnetic field with micro- and nano-objects.”
Within the framework of both themes there were problem-oriented computing tools developed for rapid processing of large amounts of information. As a result, the department was granted the State Prize of Ukraine in the field of science and technology.
There were three systems created as a part of implementing economic contracts:
1) an electronic mechanical system for contact sensing of metal and slag melts in an ore-electric electric furnace for operational control of melting.
Its features.
In order to probe the melts it is not necessary to shut down the furnace which operates in a continuous mode with voltage at the electrodes up to 600 V and currents of up to 30 kA. The temperature of the melts inside the furnace is up to 1700 ° C. The furnace dimensions are 20x10x6 meters.
Its analogues are not revealed.
2) a system for continuously regulating the flame of burners of tubular rotary kilns for calcining cinder in order to maintain its conditioned state at the outlet from the furnaces with varying properties of the charge at their input.
Its features.
The torch of the flame reaches a size of up to 20 meters. The furnace dimensions: length – 74 m, diameter 4 m.
Its analogues are not revealed.
3) a system for continuous measurement of the vibrations of the blades of wind generators with the electric supply of vibration meters for the light conductor.
Its features.
The blade size of the electric generator is 60x5x2 m. The power supply source of the vibration sensor (light) is 15 meters away from the generator.
Its analogues are not revealed.


Device for receiving energyograms

Since 2017, cooperation between KNURE and clinical resort “Grove” has been conducting scientific research in the field of diagnostics of the human body.
The developed method is based on an advanced method of obtaining information about the state of biological objects based on the Kirlian effect. The study of the object in this case occurs in a high-voltage high-frequency field. As the object of study are usually used human fingers, in which areas with different conductivity carry diagnostic information. The results of the study are visualized by the two most common methods. The first one suggested by P. Mandela uses photographic paper, the second one proposed by Prof. Korotkov uses the method of gas-discharge visualization, in which the image is fixed by the CCD.
The advantage of P. Mandela’s method is to obtain information simultaneously from all fingers and even feet, which eliminates the mutual influence of the channels of one finger on the other in the measurement process, when a high-voltage voltage of about 10-20 kilovolts is applied to them, at a sufficiently low current, naturally. The disadvantage of this method is the low efficiency, which limits the process of processing photographic materials, the installation for diagnosis is very cumbersome – has the size of a table.
In turn, the method of prof. Short has high efficiency due to the chosen imaging method, they have developed a number of diagnostic computer programs for various diagnostic tasks. The disadvantage in this case is that he developed the equipment operates at higher voltages and provides at each time processing only one finger of the patient. This leads to the interaction of the channels of the different fingers, which can not but affect the accuracy of the diagnostic process.

An example of an energyogram and the results of its primary processing

The proposed method is based on the use of the phenomenon of polarization of some types of dielectrics in high-voltage high-frequency field and their ability to long-term preservation of such states. The manifestation of the image obtained in the process of diagnostics (energy chart) is similar to the processes in printers of the type of photocopier and provides their prompt introduction into the computer. According to this method, the patent of Ukraine UA116491C2 was obtained.
Currently, the method has been tested, which showed good diagnostic ability. The advantage of it is the work at much lower voltages, which reduces the destabilizing effect on individual systems of the body, while not limiting the possibility of simultaneous examination of all fingers as in the method of P. Mandela.
Further work will be carried out in the direction of improving the hardware of diagnostics, development of a set of diagnostic programs, their further testing and certification. Currently, software is being developed to process the results of energyograms: a program of segmentation of energygrams by sectors used in P. Mandela’s method, which allows to determine the percentage of filling the sectors of the energygram and its deviation, which gives the level of activity of the organs of the organisms of the subjects. A database is also being developed to store the results of measurements over a period of time in the computer’s memory and to identify trends in the treatment or healing of patients.
The results may find application in medicine, sports, psychological research, and other related fields.


In 2017, within the framework of the performed R&D “Creation of scientific and methodological basis of ensuring a survivability of the network systems of information exchange under conditions of an external influence of the powerful microwave radiation” (No. 0117U003916), the problem of mathematical modeling was performed on the basis of a self-consistent system of equations modeling the process of electromagnetic impact fields on semiconductor elements, taking into account their topology. An experimental unit for testing the influence of electromagnetic field on semiconductor elements of information-switching systems has been developed. The methods of electromagnetic field microwave pulse compression for ultra-short pulses with high peak power were determined.

In 2018, theoretical solutions to the problem of increasing the range of powerful electromagnetic pulses for the destruction of a semiconductor system base were obtained within the framework of the R&D “Creation of scientific and methodological basis of ensuring a survivability of the network systems of information exchange under conditions of an external influence of the powerful microwave radiation” (No. GR 0118U000832). Functional circuits and hardware for controlling the influence of electromagnetic energy have been developed. New methods of technical protection of semiconductor element base of information systems from the influence of electromagnetic energy are proposed. Algorithms for receiving, transmitting and processing information have been created for a number of stationary and mobile technical objects. A general concept of increasing the survivability of fixed and mobile information systems through efficient algorithms for their protection has been created.

From 2015 to 2019 The staff of the department received 10 patents for inventions and utility models.
