Placement of distributed generation units using multi objective function based on SA algorithm

This article presents an optimal placement method in order to size and sit distributed generation in IEEE 33 bus test system. The algorithm for optimization in this paper is Simulated Annealing. The proposed objective function considers active power losses of the system and the voltage profile in nominal load of system. In order to use Simulated Annealing algorithm, at first, placement problem is written as an...

Efficiency of slash bundling in mature coniferous stands

The biomass of forests is one of the oldest and most popular sources of renewable energy. Aside from round wood, logging residue is also being used with increasing frequency to produce energy. Under European conditions, the most frequently implemented technology of using logging residue is chipping, either directly at the cutting site or at the forest roadside. However, for over a dozen years now, with more and more...

Stability analysis for a turbocharger rotor system under nonlinear hydrodynamic forces

Turbocharger is a high speed rotor system supported by a pair of floating ring bearings which comprise of double oil films. The stability of its rotor system is governed by not only the structure of the rotor but also by the nonlinear hydrodynamic force of two oil films. In this paper, a lumped dynamics model is developed for a turbocharger rotor system. In order to investigate the nonlinear behavior of the rotor...

A collection of new preconditioners for solving linear systems

In this paper, new preconditioners from class of (I+S)-type for solving linear systems are developed and preconditioned, accelerated overrelaxation (AOR) method is used for the systems. The proposed algorithms have a simple and graceful structure. Asymptotic convergence of the sequence generated by the methods to the unique solution of linear systems is proved, along with a result regarding the convergence rate of the...

On meromorphic functions with fixed residue defined using convolution

In this paper, we introduced a new subclass of meromorphic functions with residue, which is defined by means of a Hadamard product (or convolution). Then we determine some properties such as coefficient bound, distortion theorems, radius of starlikeness and convexity for this class.   Key words: Analytic, meromorphic functions, Hadamard product, convolution.

A combinatorial approach to human face recognition and expression identification

A new integrated approach to human face recognition and expression identification based on Gray Level Co-occurrence Matrix (GLCM) technique that will be useful for  Human Face Recognition and Feature Extraction system based on Local Ternary Pattern (LTP) for expression identification was introduced. It applies GLCM operation to extract the features of facial images to different classes for the purpose of image...
