Numerical tests show that the high-order (>7) spectral element methods can performance efficiently on the relatively slow-network PC clusters, and parallel efficiency with eight nodes is more than 60% with normal elemental scale (32*32 elements).
In this algorithm the power flows of the cut branches are taken as coordinational variables, which are expressed in the form of virtual loads, and then the influence of coupling among sub-networks are processed. The proposed algorithm can effectively transfer the power flow calculation of large scale power system into the power flow calculation of several sub-networks, so it is a quasi-parallel algorithm based on the concept of power flow dispatching and can be easily implemented on personal computer cluster.
Queries are processed by a local network PC cluster.
The Parallel Conformal FDTD code developed by our group earlier was run on a PC cluster with high performance to analyze a new type of PBG microstrip filter structure and a new type of base station antenna.
In this paper, we introduce the parallel overlap domain decomposition scheme and give a parallel pseudospectral method implemented on distributed memory PC cluster system for modeling seismic wave propagation in heterogeneous medium.
The MPI standard is used for message passing and tests are run on a PC cluster and on an SGI Altix 350.
