Fuzzy sets in distributed traffic control
The task of controlling urban traffic requires flexibility, adaptability and handling uncertain information spread through the intersection network. The use of fuzzy sets concepts convey these characteristics to improve ...
Fuzzy distributed artificial intelligence systems
In this paper, we introduce a DAI approach called hereinafter Fuzzy Distributed Artificial Intelligence (FDAI). Through the use of fuzzy logic, we have been able to develop mechanisms that we feel may effectively improve ...
Fault section estimation in automated distribution substations
In this paper, a methodology based on Unconstrained Binary Programming (UBP) model and Genetic Algorithms (GAs) is proposed for estimating fault sections in automated distribution substations. The UBP model, established ...
Voltage regulator modeling for the three-phase power flow in distribution networks
In this paper a three-phase power flow for electrical distribution systems considering different models of voltage regulators is presented. A voltage regulator (VR) is an equipment that maintains the voltage level in a ...
Model-based control of enzyme yield in solid-state fermentation
Solid-state fermentation is gaining increasing importance for the production of high-added value products, for instance enzymes, from agro-industrial by-products. The main difficulty in operating this process in packed-bed ...
