    In hybrid wired-wireless media, congestion control and scheduling are both trying to allocate bandwidth to the flows. Performance studies of long-term evolution (LTE) networks show that by decreasing the mismatch between scheduling at the base station of an LTE network and congestion control algorithms implemented at end users, significant improvements in the obtained overall throughput and fairne...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1674 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper presents a study of the impact of the electric vehicle (EV) charger load on the capacity of distribution feeders and transformers of an urban utility. A residential neighborhood of the city of Toronto, Canada, is selected to perform the study based on survey results that showed a high tendency for EV adoption. The two most loaded distribution transformers of such a neighborhood are stud... View full abstract»

    An important problem in computer vision is object recognition, which has received considerable attention in the literature. The performance of any object recognition system depends on the shape representation used and on the matching algorithm applied. In this paper, we propose a novel circle views (CVs) shape signature for recognizing 2-D object silhouettes. Many views from one circular orbit (or... View full abstract»

  • Hourly Electricity Price Forecasting for the Next Month Using Multilayer Neural Network

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):283 - 291
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (5595 KB)

    Load and price forecasting are key challenges for current electricity market participants. Load and price in electricity markets have complex peculiarities, such as nonlinearity, being nonstationary and irregular. Accurate short-term forecasting, such as hourly electricity price forecasting (EPF) for the next month gives pivotal information to power producers and consumers to enhance precise techn...

  • A Near-Threshold Energy-Efficient ASK Transmitter for Biomedical Implants

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):292 - 296
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1572 KB)

    A near-threshold amplitude shift keying (NT-ASK) transmitter for biomedical implants is presented in this paper. The ASK transmitter supports a 100-Mb/s baseband data rate with a carrier frequency of 2.4 GHz. The design incorporates an LC voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO), ASK modulator, and a class-E power amplifier. The carrier is generated by a low phase noise LC-VCO, and then directly modula...

  • Study on the Partial Discharge Characteristics and Development Process in Use of the Multiple Discharge Patterns for the Typical Defects in Gas-Insulated Switchgear

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):297 - 310

    This paper presents an experiment to study the partial discharge (PD) characteristics and development process of the physical models of general insulation defects in gas-insulated switchgear (GIS). Four types of typical artificial insulation defects are designed to imitate the insulation faults in an actual GIS. The experiment PD data are obtained from a 220-kV GIS equipment using ultrahigh-freque... View full abstract»

    It is anticipated that the existing analog use of the frequency modulation (FM) band (87.5-108 MHz) will ultimately be replaced by contemporary digital systems beyond 3G. Before such a transition is realized, it is important to understand the channel characteristics of the FM band in order to perform preliminary studies before deployment of new systems. Hence, in this paper, for the FM band, we in... View full abstract»

    Malicious software (malware) is one significant threat to Internet security. Malware is designed to harm a computer or network, and can be installed on one's machine without their consent. Attacks are often done by deceiving people into downloading malicious software that is posing as useful software. We speculated that if people had advice from a trusted source, they would be inclined to use the ... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1831 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper, we propose a neuro-fuzzy (NF) classification technique to determine various soil classes from large imagery soil databases. The technique looks at the feature-wise degree of belongings of the imagery databases to obtainable soil classes using a fuzzification method. The fuzzification method builds a membership matrix with an element count equal to the mathematical product of the num... View full abstract»
