Transmission network expansion planning considering multiple generation scenarios
This paper presents a mathematical model and a methodology to solve a transmission network expansion planning problem considering open access. The methodology finds the optimal transmission network expansion plan that ...
A radial basis function network (RBFN) for function approximation
A radial basis function network (RBFN) circuit for function approximation is presented. Simulation and experimental results show that the network has good approximation capabilities. The RBFN was a squared hyperbolic secant ...
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 ...
Network reconfiguration of distribution systems using metaheuristics and reliability measures
In an evermore competitive environment, power distribution companies need to continuously monitor and improve the reliability indices of their systems. The network reconfiguration (NR) of a distribution system is a technique ...
Identification of steel bars immersed in reinforced concrete based on experimental results of eddy current testing and artificial neural network analysis
This paper presents an experimental research on the use of eddy current testing (ECT) and artificial neural networks (ANNs) in order to identify the gauge and position of steel bars immersed in concrete structures. The ...
Wireless mesh networks planning based on parameters of quality of service
The use of QoS parameters to evaluate the quality of service in a mesh network is essential mainly when providing multimedia services. This paper proposes an algorithm for planning wireless mesh networks in order to satisfy ...
