Q. Fang, Identifiability Analysis of a Wind Generation Unit Model Using Global Sensitivity Analysis, 3rd March 2016.
Abstract: This seminar presents a parameter identifiability method based on the Global Sensitivity Analysis (GSA), and its application in parameter estimation of a wind generation unit model. The GSA determines which model parameters will effect observations that are used in the parameter estimation procedure. Parameters with negligible impact on the observations are not identifiable. […]

Abstract: Track-before-detect (TBD) is a statistical hypothesis testing technique that tests for the presence or otherwise, of a dynamic target using noisy and/or incomplete sensor measurements. Rather than making a detection decision directly from the observations, then handing relevant detection information to a model based tracker, TBD methods reverse this order of processing by […]
C. Zou, Resonance breakdown of dielectric resonator antennas on metallic substrates at visible frequencies, 17th December 2015.
Abstract: Dielectric resonators have seen increasing applications in optical metamaterial designs. The ability of nanoscale Dielectric Resonator Antennas (DRAs) to support electric and magnetic resonances at visible frequencies is critical for their efficient light manipulation, which leads to promising applications such as sensing, imaging, field enhancement, and integrated optics. This talk discusses the resonance […]
Abstract: The French-German research institute in Saint-Louis is a bi-national institution providing innovative scientific solutions for defence and security applications. The research topics which are investigated include novel high-power laser sources, novel energetic materials, and aerodynamics. An increasing focus on protection technologies reflects the recent developments in France and many other European countries. New […]
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 […]
