  • Applications of noniterative least absolute value estimation for forecasting annual peak electric power demand

    Publication Year: 1998, Page(s):141 - 146
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2968 KB)

    A noniterative least absolute value (LAV) technique for estimating the parameters of a selected electric load forecasting model is utilized. The selected forecasting model with the estimated parameters is employed in forecasting the demand of a given data set. The main feature of the LAV technique is its capability of rejecting any bad data in the parameters estimation process without any previous... View full abstract»

  • A comprehensive long-term power distribution system expansion planning model

    Publication Year: 1998, Page(s):147 - 153
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (6080 KB)

    A new long-term power distribution system expansion planning model is developed. The model includes accurate representation of the different nonlinear planning cost functions. The cost of expanding an existing substation by adding transformer units is also included in the planning cost formulation. Moreover, power-conservation, voltage-drop and equipment-capacity constraints are explicitly include... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a synthesis technique for the design of first- and second-order Bode-type wave-digital (WD) variable-amplitude equalizers. The proposed first-order equalizer consists of one unit-delay and two digital multipliers and produces a fan-shaped magnitude-frequency response, while the proposed second-order equalizer consists of two unit-delays and three digital multipliers and produce...

    This is an explorative paper which focuses on the accuracy of locating an underwater acoustic source using the broadband information collected at arbitrarily positioned, submerged, omnidirectional hydrophones. The paper presents expressions for the localization-error covariance of an optimally weighted least-square-error estimator for two sources of error: ocean acoustic noise and sensor perturbat...

  • Diagnosis and monitoring of high-voltage insulation using computerized analysis of partial discharge measurements

    Publication Year: 1998, Page(s):171 - 177
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (4147 KB)

    Transmission of electrical power requires various types of apparatus. All the apparatus and transmission-line conductors must be insulated from the high and extra-high voltages arising from the need of transmitting a large quantum of energy. As the need grows, the quality and reliability of the insulator must also grow to handle extra stresses. Hence an attempt is made to evaluate insulation in po... View full abstract»

  • A decision-diagram-based synthesis procedure for DCVS circuits

    Publication Year: 1998, Page(s):179 - 184
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2569 KB)

    Differential Cascode Voltage Switch (DCVS) circuits are becoming an important emerging direction of research in the quest for high-performance CMOS integrated circuits. Potential advantages are higher circuit density and speed and lower power dissipation. In this paper we introduce a new decision-diagram-based model, the 123 decision diagram, which can be used to efficiently synthesize DCVS circui... View full abstract»

  • Characteristics of a fixed-frequency series-parallel resonant converter operating on the utility line with and without active control

    Publication Year: 1998, Page(s):185 - 193
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3820 KB)

    A single-phase high-frequency transformer-isolated ac-to-dc controlled rectifier using a fixed-frequency series-parallel (or LCC-type) resonant converter (SPRC) is presented. A simple analysis and design procedure is used for designing the converter for low line-current harmonic distortion and high power-factor (PF) operation. The converter performance characteristics have been verified with SPICE... View full abstract»
