Enabling Reliability-Differentiated Service in Residential Distribution Networks With PHEVs: A Hierarchical Game Approach

This paper proposes a framework for enabling the reliability-differentiated services in a residential distribution network with plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs). A reliability-differentiated pricing mechanism is developed to satisfy the different reliability requirements of the customers while encouraging the customers to consume electricity in such a way that the reliability of the overall distribution system […]

Profiling Wireless Resource Usage for Mobile Apps via Crowdsourcing-based Network Analytics

The rapid growth of mobile app traffic brings huge pressure to today’s cellular networks. While this fact is commonly concerned by all the mobile carriers, little work has been done to analyze app’s network resource usage. In this paper, we for the first time profile network resource usages for mobile apps by establishing a quantitative […]

Complete Stability of Neural Networks with Non-monotonic Piecewise Linear Activation Functions

This brief studies the complete stability of neural networks with non-monotonic piecewise linear activation functions. By applying the fixed point theorem and the eigenvalue properties of strict diagonal dominance matrix, some conditions are derived which guarantee that such n-neuron neural networks are completely stable. More precisely, the following two important results are obtained: 1) The […]

Estimation of Backlog and Delay in OFDM/ TDMA Systems with Traffic Policing Through Network Calculus

In this paper, we firstly propose a policing algorithm based on multifractal traffic modeling, evaluating its performance in comparison to other algorithms. Further, we present an approach based on Network Calculus for estimating quality of service parameters, such as mean queue length (backlog) and delay. We analyze these two parameters for an OFDM/TDMA based simplified […]

Feedback Error Learning Control of Magnetic Satellites Using Type-2 Fuzzy Neural Networks With Elliptic Membership Functions

A novel type-2 fuzzy membership function (MF) in the form of an ellipse has recently been proposed in literature, the parameters of which that represent uncertainties are de-coupled from its parameters that determine the center and the support. This property has enabled the proposers to make an analytical comparison of the noise rejection capabilities of […]

Analytic Approximation of Fault Current Contributions From Capacitive Components in HVDC Cable Networks

A novel approach for the calculation of transient fault current contributions from capacitive network components in HVDC cable networks during pole-to-ground faults is presented in this paper. Analytic approximations considering the skin effect and the resulting distortion of the waveshape of the fault surge are proposed. Only fault current contributions from capacitive components, such as […]

Space-time Queuing Theoretic Modeling of Opportunistic Multi-hop Coexisting Wireless Networks With and Without Cooperation

In this paper, we characterize the average end-toend delay in an opportunistic multi-hop secondary cognitive radio network overlaid with a primary multi-hop network. Nodes in both networks use random medium access control (MAC) scheme with exponentially distributed back-off. We first model the network as a two-class priority queuing network and use queuing-theoretic approximation techniques to […]

Developing a coherent global view for post disaster situation awareness using opportunistic network

Situational awareness is a critical component in a post-disaster recovery operation for assessment of needs and identification of available resources at different parts of a disaster-affected area. This information, in turn, may help the relief agencies to appropriately coordinate, manage and channelize their resources. A major hindrance in developing such global situational awareness is the […]

Analyzing the impact of business interoperability on the performance of cooperative supply chain networks

The originality of this paper consists in proposing a model that can be used to simulate the manner in which companies interoperate in cooperative supply chain networks. The objective is to develop a model that enables the analysis of the impact of business interoperability on the performance of cooperative supply chain networks. The analysis of […]

Robust Optimization of Storage Investment on Transmission Networks

This paper discusses the need for the integration of storage systems on transmission networks having renewable sources, and presents a tool for energy storage planning. The tool employs robust optimization to minimize the investment in storage units that guarantee a feasible system operation, without load or renewable power curtailment, for all scenarios in the convex […]
