ABSTRACT The annual electric power consumption is one of the most important factors in operation decisions of Chinese electric power generation groups. The grey model is feasible method to deal with this trend extension problem with few data. But the simple approximation in dispersing the first order differential equation affects it forecasting precise. Based on adjusting the positions of each particle, the global best optimization method could search the best proportion point. This could improve the forecasting results in the practice of annual electric power consumption.

    ABSTRACT: Achieving high-distribution reliability levels and concurrently minimizing capital costs can be considered as the main issues in distribution system optimization. Determination of the optimum number and location of switches in distribution system automation is an important issue from the reliability and economical points of view. In this paper, a novel three-state approach inspired from the discrete version of a powerful heuristic algorithm, particle swarm optimization, is developed and presented to determine the optimum number and locations of two types of switches (sectionalizers and breakers) in radial distribution systems. The novelty of the proposed algorithm is to simultaneously consider both sectionalizer and breaker switches. The feasibility of the proposed algorithm is examined by application to two distribution systems. The proposed solution approach provides a global optimal solution for the switch placement problem.

    ABSTRACT: This paper proposes a new technique of modeling driver drowsiness with multiple eyelid movement features based on an information fusion technique - partial least squares regression (PLSR), with which to cope with the problem of strong collinear relations among eyelid movement features and, thus, predicting the tendency of the drowsiness. With a set of electro- oculogram signals measured in an experiment conducted in Sweden, 14 typical eyelid movement features are first extracted. Then, statistical analyses from 20 subjects indicate that the eyelid movement parameters can characterize a driver's degree of drowsiness. The intrinsic quantitative relationships between eyelid movement features and driver drowsiness degree are modeled by PLSR analysis. The developed model provides a framework for integrating multiple sleepiness features together and defining the contribution of each feature to the decision and prediction result. The predictive precision and robustness of the model thus established are validated, which show that it provides a novel way of fusing multifeatures together for enhancing our capability of detecting and predicting the state of drowsiness.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, a dynamic all parameters adaptive BP neural networks model is proposed by fusing genetic algorithms (GAs), simulated annealing (SA) and error back propagation neural network (BPNN) to offset the demerits of one paradigm by the merits of another. Adopting multi-encoding, the model can optimize the input nodes, hidden nodes, transfer function, weights and bias of BP networks dynamically and adaptively. Under accurate premise, the simple architecture (less input and hidden nodes) of network model is constructed in order to improve networks’ adaptation and generalization ability, and to greatly reduce the subjective choice of structural parameters. The results of application on oil reservoir prediction show that the proposed model with comparatively simple structure can meet the precision request and enhance the generalization ability.
