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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

High-Throughput Reliable Multicast in Multi-Hop Wireless Mesh Networks

This paper presents a cross-layer approach for enabling high-throughput reliable multicast in multi-hop wireless mesh networks. The building block of our approach is a multicast routing metric, called the expected multicast transmission count (EMTX). EMTX is designed to capture the combined effects of MAC-layer retransmission-based reliability, wireless broadcast advantage, and link quality awareness. The EMTX […]

One-sided binary tree-crossbar switching for on-chip networks

This paper is concerned with the design of switch fabrics for on-chip network routers and multicore computer chips. Using a cyclic permutation group representation, it describes an n-terminal, one-sided, binary-tree-crossbar switch fabric comprising a O(lg n) columns of crosspoints with a fan-out of two and n/2 columns of wiring. It also presents a distributed algorithm […]

Dynamic Spectrum Allocation for the Downlink of OFDMA-Based Hybrid Access in Cognitive Femtocell Networks

Cognitive femtocell has emerged as one of the exciting technologies to solve the indoor coverage problem in the future cellular networks. Recently, lots of technical issues for the cognitive femtocell have been studied, e.g., spectrum sharing, interference mitigation. However, the incentive method that is very important for practical hybrid access cognitive femtocell deployment has not […]

A novel static external network equivalencing method for protection studies on Iran Transmission Grid

In this paper, a novel static external network reduction appropriate for fault studies and relay coordination in transmission system is proposed. By applying the proposed method to IEEE 14-bus network and Hormozgan Transmission Network, its major advantages, simplicity and accuracy (less than 5% error) have been confirmed in comparison with accurate classic and approximate engineering […]
