Analysis and parametric optimization of flux cored arc welding process for IS 2062 mild steel plates using Taguchi method and utility concept

Optimization of flux cored arc welding (FCAW) process parameters were carried out to obtain optimum weld bead geometry in mild steel plates of IS 2062 by using an alternate Taguchi method. Design of experiments based on multi-objective Taguchi approach was employed for development of mathematical model correlating important process parameters like welding voltage (V), welding current (I), stick out (N) and wire speed...

New technique based on uterine electromyography nonlinearity for preterm delivery detection

Detecting uterine electromyography (EMG) signals can yield a promising approach to determine and take actions to prevent preterm deliveries. This paper objective is to predict this risk using such uterine signals. Previous classification studies have used only linear signal processing which depends on the spectral characteristics of the uterine EMG signals that did not give clinically acceptable results. On the other...

Applications of intelligent multi-agent systems for smart distribution systems

Multi-agent systems (MAS) can be applied to service restoration planning of distribution systems. The main purpose of service restoration planning is to restore as many customers as possible. In this paper, a MAS-based service restoration planner with a Genetic Algorithm (GA) is developed to solve group and zone service restoration problems in power distribution systems. Intelligent software agents embedded inside...
