1. Improvement of Automatic Generation Control with Automatic Voltage Regulator and Power System for balanced of an Isolated Power System
Y. Swetha, N. Ramyasri, B. Mohan Kishore
The paper presents a simulink model of Automatic Generation Control of Synchronous Generator interfaced with AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulator) and PSS (Power System Stabilizer). The terminal voltage and frequency deviation to a step change in the load were analyzed and various results were plotted for different gains. The load frequency controller maintains the steady state error to zero, while the AVR loop maintains the terminal voltage to be constant. Also the simulation was carried out with and without PSS in the exciter circuit of the alternator.


2. Growth and Performance of Insurance industry in India
Dr. Mallikarjuna V, Dr.Narayana Reddy, Pushpa Latha K
Life is a full of risks. Man always tries to reduce risk. Insurance is a form of risk management which spreads risk of many people in exchange for small payments from each. Insurance is a promise of compensation for any potential future losses. It facilitates financial protection by reimbursing losses during crisis. The primary function of insurance is to provide protection against future risk, accidents and uncertainty. There are two main types of insurance, namely life insurance and general insurance .Life Insurance is a contract providing for payment of a sum of money to the person assured or, following him to the person entitled to receive the same, on the happening of a certain event. It is a good method to protect your family financially, in case of death, by providing funds for the loss of income. The main products of life insurance include whole life, Endowment, Term, Investment-linked, Life annuity plan, Medical and health insurance. General insurance covers insurance of property against fire, burglary, theft. This category of insurance virtually covers all forms of insurance except life.


3. Literature Review on Organization Culture and Its Influence
Ms.V.Kalaiarasi, Dr.S.Sethuram
Organization culture is widely considered to be one of the most significant factors of organization variables. Every organization has it unique organization culture to differentiate them from others and the culture reflects the behavior of employees in organization. The challenge of today's managers ismanaging diverse cultures work force employees from which have significant influence on the behavior at work, managerial practices, organizational effectiveness and efficiency. Despite the importance to researchers, managers, and policy makers of how organization culture contributes to organization variables, there is uncertainty and debated about what we know and don't know. A review of the literature reveals that studies examining the association between organization culture and organization variables are divergent in how they conceptualize key constructs and their interrelationships. The purpose of this study is to increase the knowledge base on organization cultures and their relation with other organizational variables.Our analysis provides a blueprint to guide future research and facilitates knowledge accumulation and creation concerning the organizational performance impacts of organization culture. Upon examining numerous literatures, it is found that organization cultures relationshipwith other organizational variables like commitment, satisfaction, leadership, organizational performance and employee turnover are established by this literature review study.Research reveals that possession of similar norms and values by the organization and its employees will improve the performance of the organization towards achieving the goals of the organization.


4. Hands Free Agriculture Monitoring Using IOT
Asmath. A, Sowmya Sunkara
This Paper is an attempt to develop to observe the water quality along with the environment conditions in the agriculture field hands-free and remotely. A Raspberry controller based IOT implementation with a webserver and mail service to update the current environment of the agriculture field, which includes the moisture content in the field with the water pH value is developed. For the warehouse protection the camera with motion sensor is utilized.The temperature sensor and the moisture sensor are observed from the field and pH sensor is observed from the water. All these sensor data are got and tabulated in the webserver for further decision-making.As the idea of the Internet of Things' turns out to be progressively pervasive, numerous frameworks are being concocted to enable all way of information to be assembled and examined and gadgets controlled through remote information systems. The Agriculture observing framework has the reliance among the different devices like MCP3008, ph sensor,lm35(temperature sensor),ultrasonic sensor, motion sensor. This paper takes care of both the field and the warehouse. The godown is monitored using the motion sensor.


5. Investigation of Durability Properties of Manufactured Sand in Concrete
T. Kavitha, Dr. P. Partheeban
The huge quantity of concrete is consumed by construction industry all over the world. In India, the conventional concrete is produced using natural sand from river beds as fine aggregate. Decreasing natural resources poses the environment problem and hence government restriction on sand quarrying resulted in scarcity and significant increase in its cost. This paper presents the optimization of partial replacement of manufactured sand by natural sand in High Performance Concrete. Concrete mixes were evaluated for durability properties of manufactured sand in concrete by partially replaced with natural sand with by three proportions ( ie 25%,50%,75%). In this study, Chloride ion penetration and Water absorption calculated for M60 grade concrete with manufactured sand.


6. Economic Rationality-based Entrepreneurial vs. Employee Orientations by Entropy, Updating and Error Rates Computing: Evidence of Kenyan Credit Unions
Stanley K. Kirika, Willy Muturi & Anthony Waititu
Unemployment is one of the greatest concerns of economies. Strong advocacy for entrepreneurship development by way of creating an enabling environment for funding entrepreneurs to start own businesses and training to ensure sustainability is an international objective. This paper contrasts financial decision making orientations for credit union entrepreneur members and credit union employee members of Unitas and Stima credit unions respectively who share the same return on assets. Three objectives were pursued. First was to establish that higher entropy does not necessarily result into a higher rationality level. Secondly, the paper set out to show that a low error rate is an important factor that leads to higher rationality levels, which results to better financial performance. Finally, it sought to establish that updating rate is critical to long run financial performance. A 9-point Likert longitudinal data for 2005 and 2015 was collected and converted into probabilities. Since the probabilities are subjective, cumulative prospect theory decision weights function was used to transform them into objective probabilities, and then fitted into a multi-period Bayesian rationality model. Unitas members with less than half the potential of Stima members and a lower rationality starting point catch up with Stima members within the 10 years. Stima's endowment of a lower updating period did not give it any advantage. The single all important factor is the updating rate, which worked in favour of Unitas credit union members. The paper recommends that entrepreneurial union members should be supported more by the government to accelerate wealth creation, hence job creation.


7. Utilization of Crush Sand as an alternative for natural sand in Concrete
Ravi Modi
Natural Sand is mainly excavated from river beds and contains high percentages of inorganic materials, chlorides, sulphates, silt and clay that adversely affect the strength and durability of concrete thereby reducing the life of the structure. Crushed sand is different in shape, grading and content as compared to river sand. Hence, the usage of crushed sand as a replacement for diminishing natural sand has become essential keeping in view technical, commercial and environmental requirements. This paper deals with usage of Crushed sand as an alternative to River sand as fine aggregate.
