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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Effect of MAC type and speed on neighbor discovery in wireless train networks

In this paper, a wireless neighbor discovery (ND) process in a linear topology of a high-speed train backbone network is studied. A key step that enables communication in such a network is that of topology discovery (TD), whereby nodes learn in a distributed fashion the physical topology of the backbone network. ND, where each individual […]

Network Coding Protocols for Data Gathering Applications

Tunable sparse network coding (TSNC) with various sparsity levels of the coded packets and different feedback mechanisms is analysed in the context of data gathering applications in multi-hop networks. The goal is to minimize the completion time, i.e., the total time required to collect all data packets from the nodes while maintaining the per packet […]

A tunable common mode inductor with an auxiliary winding network

In conventional switching converter, the parasitic capacitance between switching circuit and ground introduces common mode (CM) noise problem. A CM inductor is inserted in the power feeding paths to produce a high impedance to attenuate the CM noise. However, this parasitic capacitance and the CM inductor create low-frequency resonance near the switching frequency and its […]

Performance analysis of FMAC protocol for packet size in wireless sensor networks

Set of different sensor nodes deployed in area is wireless sensor network. Deployed nodes are capturing the environmental condition and transfer information packet to sink node. Latency, delivery ratio, loss ratio, throughput, congestion control, fairness, reliability are the some parameters or quality of services of wireless sensor networks. In this paper results shows the performance […]

Dual-band dual-mode patch antenna for on-/off-body WBAN communications

A novel coplanar waveguide (CPW)-fed dual-band dual-mode patch antenna for on-/off-body communications is proposed. The proposed antenna, which comprises a T-shaped patch with parasitic patches, a circular patch, and a CPW feed line, has dimensions of 30 mm × 45 mm × 3.2 mm. The proposed antenna operates in the 2.4 GHz ISM band (2.4 […]
