Meta-heuristic approaches for a soft drink industry problem
The present paper evaluates meta-heuristic approaches to solve a soft drink industry problem. This problem is motivated by a real situation found in soft drink companies, where the lot sizing and scheduling of raw materials ...
A Needs Engineering Methodology For Identification And Modeling Process Semantics For Cooperation Networks
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2016)
A new method for real time computation of power quality indices based on instantaneous space phasors
One of the important issues about using renewable energy is the integration of dispersed generation in the distribution networks. Previous experience has shown that the integration of dispersed generation can improve voltage ...
A branch-and-bound algorithm for the multi-stage transmission expansion planning
This work presents a branch-and-bound algorithm to solve the multi-stage transmission expansion planning problem. The well known transportation model is employed, nevertheless the algorithm can be extended to hybrid models ...
Analytical/numerical hybrid solution for one-dimensional ablation problem
Ablation is a thermal protection process with several applications in engineering, mainly in the field of airspace industry. The use of conventional materials must be quite restricted, because they would suffer catastrophic ...
A constructive heuristic algorithm to Short Term Transmission Network Expansion Planning
In this paper a method for solving the Short Term Transmission Network Expansion Planning (STTNEP) problem is presented. The STTNEP is a very complex mixed integer nonlinear programming problem that presents a combinatorial ...
Heuristic algorithm to solve the short term transmission network expansion planning
In this paper, a method for solving the short term transmission network expansion planning problem is presented. This is a very complex mixed integer nonlinear programming problem that presents a combinatorial explosion ...
Distribution network reconfiguration using an efficient evolutionary algorithm
Network reconfiguration is an important tool to optimize the operating conditions of a distribution system. This is accomplished modifying the network structure of distribution feeders by changing the open/close status of ...
Activation function study for wavelet network
The main purpose of this paper is to investigate theoretically and experimentally the use of family of Polynomial Powers of the Sigmoid (PPS) Function Networks applied in speech signal representation and function approximation. ...
