Facilitation

The process of providing a market for a security. Normally, this refers to bids and offers made for large blocks of securities, such as those traded by institutions. Listed options may be used to offset part of the risk assumed by the trader who is facilitating the large block order. See also: Hedge ratio.

Facilitation

The act of providing or preserving the liquidity of a market. For example, market makers facilitate markets when they trade on their own accounts to try to preserve an equilibrium of supply and demand.

This study aims to further reduce the complex calculation process brought about by the artificial intelligent-based methods and to determine the excitation current of SM used for reactive power compensation with a higher accuracy.
However, the ability of textile electrodes to accurately and reliably measure muscle excitation during more dynamic, and potentially more functionally relevant, movements is yet to be determined.
For example, one of ways to solve the problem of increase the SM starting characteristics is serial connection of capacitors to the excitation windings which compensate its inductive resistance, but of the wrong choice of their capacities can call result in the phenomena of the voltage resonance or to decrease the starting electromagnet torque instead of its increase [7].
The work aimed to experimentally investigate the spectra of luminescence and conductivity and their dependencies on the intensity of X-ray excitation for the ZnSe single crystals at various temperatures and explain the sublinear dependencies of the LAC of the X-ray conductivity and LLC of the X-ray luminescence.

The excitation capacitance to provide reactive power for the IG is calculated by the following equations [23]-[26]
Recently, this method has been successfully applied to compute the bounds of the radiation pattern when array excitation errors exist [4, 10-13].
