    This paper presents an investigation on incentive based demand response program (DRP) in deregulated power system environment. The major issues which are addressed in this paper, under demand response scenario are (i) demand curve flattening (ii) locational marginal pricing (LMP), and (iii) nodal voltage profile. The various issues mentioned above are compared under the power system modeling witho... View full abstract»

    This paper describes a new directional overcurrent relay for protection of interconnected distribution network and DG unit. When the relay current exceeds its pick-up value, correlation of the voltage and current at the relay point as well as partial autocorrelation of the current are calculated. By comparing the calculated parameters with the prespecified thresholds, forward or backward direction... View full abstract»

    A Quality of Service (QoS) routing architecture that balances Internet flow traffic with different QoS requirements in Agile All-Photonic Networks (AAPN) is presented. The architecture is based on the static and adaptive routing methods proposed previously for the AAPN network. The static routing method is based on the static Highest Random Weight (static HRW) used for designing load balanced web ... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we propose a distributed, light-weight and fast intrusion detection approach suitable for implementation across multiple resource constrained SCADA field devices in the smart grid. The predictable and regular nature of the SCADA communication patterns is exploited to detect intrusions in the field devices. The novel approach is anomaly-based, uses the Bloom filter data structure for... View full abstract»

    A major disadvantage of diode clamped inverters (DCI) in practical implementations is capacitor dc voltage fluctuation. A new and very fast space vector modulation scheme for controlling the capacitor dc voltage fluctuation is introduced in this paper. The proposed algorithm accelerates the computation of the nearest three vectors and calculation of corresponding duty cycles without an increase in... View full abstract»

    Investigating positivity of polynomials over the complex unit disc is a relevant problem in electrical and computer engineering. This paper provides two sufficient and necessary conditions for solving this problem via linear matrix inequalities (LMIs). These conditions are obtained by exploiting trigonometric transformations, a key tool for the representation of polynomials, and results from the t... View full abstract»
