    ABSTRACT: This paper describes in detail an automatic laboratory scale (50 L) batch packed column distillation system, which has been assembled at the Department of Chemical and Bioprocess Engineering of the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. The system includes real-time monitoring of temperatures (in different parts of the system), alcoholic strength, flow rates and heating power. In addition, this system allows manipulating the flow rate of the cooling water in the partial condenser and the heating power in the boiler. Data acquisition and control strategies were developed in LabVIEW® environment. The system allows developing and managing strategies to control several variables, such as distillate alcohol strength, specific temperatures and heating and cooling rates.

    ABSTRACT: This paper presents a Theory of Computation study based on recursive functions computability and innovates by performing parallels to relevant themes of Cryptography. Hence, it is presented the Hennie's notion of "abstract family of algorithms" (AFA, for short) according to the authors' understanding, and also more judicious theorems demonstrations, many times completely different from those ones available in literature. The main issue is the Isomorphism Theorem which supports the Church-Turing Thesis and provides a connection between Cryptology and Linguistics.

    ABSTRACT: Companies and professionals are currently demanding increasingly more specialized profiles, and it is therefore desirable for future graduates to have obtained one or more international professional certificates in computing security and auditing, or to at least to have received the preparation required to obtain them. It is therefore of the utmost importance that new studies be focused on professional needs without losing the scientific rigor demanded in engineers. If this objective is to be achieved, it is fundamental that these new study plans be oriented toward facilitating the attainment of these professional certificates. In this paper we establish transversal guidelines for the implementation of content related to computing security in all the subjects, materials and modules of the new degree in Computer Engineering. This will fit perfectly with the material already being taught, will be an enriching element and will allow students to obtain the basic minimum knowledge on security required by any computer engineer from the beginning of their education. The security-related content that is required to be taught during the degree course will additionally be focused on industry and present-day society by means of existing professional security and auditing certificates that will provide future professionals with the knowledge and skills needed as regards security.

    ABSTRACT: In Ecuador there is a technological culture limited of Rapid Prototyping, which is being exploited to the maximum in other countries, especially in manufacturing, optimizing resources and time. Therefore, we have seen the need to design and build a 3D printer machine that can get plastic prototypes quickly and at low cost. This paper describes the design and construction of a 3D printer that can produce physical models in three-dimensional from a virtual model designed in CAD software for the Laboratory CNC of the University of the Armed Forces ESPE Extension Latacunga. The process starts from a digitized model of the appearance that the object should be reproduced, using free software is programmed the best strategy to follow the injector for printing model, the material extruded plastic state shall be deposited in the mobile platform applied layer by layer until the object has taken its final form. The machine consists of four mechanisms or axes: X, Y, Z form a mobile platform more the extruder mechanism, which has the function of extruding a plastic filament through a smelter. Control is via PC with free software and hardware, it will transform a 3D model programming language G code, before being sent to the controller, ordering the actuators move in speed and position on schedule. Additionally installed a control system and wireless monitoring, dispensing the need for a permanently connected to the machine PC. The prototype implemented and yielded excellent results obtained accurately models  0.1 mm. and resistance depending on the type of polymer used. Therefore it is possible to design and build a 3D printer using free software for prototyping and low-cost plastic parts.

    ABSTRACT: This paper presents the implementation of an optimized version of a McEliece variant. The McEliece cryptosystem is an example of code-based cryptography which is an alternative to the most popular and commercial cryptosystems nowadays as it is believed to be immune to quantum computing. It has simple and fast algorithms, but its drawback is the size of the keys it has to deal with. By substituting the Goppa codes of the McEliece original proposal by LDPC and MDPC codes it's possible to achieve much smaller keys. And by applying programming technics such as parallelization of operations and also utilizing efficient decoders of LDPC codes it's possible to achieve really good results and optimal performances of the code-based cryptosystem showing that it really has to be considered as a strong substitute to RSA and DSA as quantum computers emerge to easily compute discrete logarithms and factor large integers.

    ABSTRACT: In this work are established the criteria for implementing a system for detecting and locating faults using state observers, based on the mathematical model of a rotor bearing mass system (SRMC), known as Jeffcott rotor. SRMC behaviour is analysed, taking the unbalance and the misalignment as main source of mechanical vibration to determine the observability of SRMC. During the development of the equations of motion of SRMC the damping takes great significance in the stability of the system.

    ABSTRACT: The article shows an omnidirectional mobile platform control using the artificial intelligence techinique of Fuzzy Logic; the control allows a practical and reliable driving control of 4 omnidirectional wheels. The control module is implemented in FPGA allowing having an independent and autonomous single chip system out of a central computer dependence to be used in different applications like service robots platforms. An additional feature is performed by using Bluetooth communication with a cellular phone as the handset control device. Driving movements for the mobile platform is limited for eight directions, a Fuzzy Logic module controls the travelling of the platform with independent movements for each wheel, physical feedback is implemented by using electronic decoders, and experimental results were achieved with an additional feature of a handset device control based on a smartphone OS Android with Bluetooth communication. Not using external software and having a system using an artificial intelligence technique implemented in fast hardware, gives the system robust and reliable control capabilities.

    ABSTRACT: This paper focuses on D-stability analysis problem for descriptor systems in algebraic differential representation. Necessary and sufficient conditions are proposed in order to ensure that all system eigenvalues belongs to a given set in the complex plane. Note that, the location of the eigenvalues in the study of dynamic systems is an important aspect to be considered since it allows obtaining important information about the system´s response. The proposed results are described as a set of LMIs and are applied to a single-machine infinite-bus power system.

    ABSTRACT: We show how to use decoherence-free subspaces over collective-noise quantum channels to convey classical information in perfect secrecy. We argue that codes defined over decoherence-free subspaces are codes for quantum wiretap channels in which the gain of information by a non-authorized third part is zero. We also show that if some symmetry conditions are guaranteed, the maximum rate on which such secret communications take place is equal to the ordinary capacity of a quantum channel to convey classical information. As a consequence of these results, we show how some protocols for secure communication can be simplified, reducing significantly the number of communications performed.
