Q. Fang, A Global Optimization Framework for Parameter Estimation of a Wind Generation Unit Model, 26th November 2015.
Abstract: This research purposes a global optimization method that could be applied in parameter estimation of wind generation unit model. When complex nonlinear models, like a wind generation unit model are used, the parameter estimation based on local optimization methods, such as nonlinear least squares method or Newton’s method, may not be able to […]
F. Li, An Episodic Memory Retrieval Algorithm for the Soar Cognitive Architecture, 19th November 2015.
Abstract: Episodic memory in cognitive architectures allows intelligent agents to query their past experiences to influence decision making. Episodic memory in the Soar cognitive architecture must efficiently encode, store, search and reconstruct episodes as snapshots of short term working memory. The performance of the current search algorithm can be improved by doing a structural […]
D. Scholten, Decentralised cascaded PV inverters: A comparison between one and two stage systems, 12th November 2015.
Abstract: Compared with parallel photovoltaic (PV) micro inverters, cascaded AC module integrated converter (MIC) systems have the added advantages of multilevel waveform switching and higher conversion efficiencies due to the absence of high gain voltage boost requirements. However, traditional centralised operation of the cascaded system is not possible due to wiring & installation cost […]
