Over the recent years, a number of new maintenances methods for high voltage substations have been introduced to reduce the number of substation events. The primary purpose of the present study is to presents a Cost-benefit analysis for Circuit-Breakers (CBS) in a substation equipped with Condition Monitoring (CM) devices. To this end, a mathematical formulation to categorize and model equipment failures based on their severity is developed. By CM, some of severity failures, named major failures, can be detected early, and corrected as the minor failure. This formulation quantifies the effect of CM devices on the outage rate and Predictive Maintenance (PDM) rate of the equipment. The PDM rate is used to modify the Markov maintenance model for the equipment. The proposed modified Markov model quantifies the effect of CM on the maintenance costs and lifetime of CB. The New Markov model is compared with the Preventive Maintenance (PM) model. Expected Energy Not Supply (EENS) and reliability Cost are calculated with and without CM on CBs. Finally, the proposed model is applied on the CBs of 400/132/20KV substation in the Khorasan Regional Electricity Company (KREC) in Iran. The obtained results show that CM on CBs of substations improves the EENS and reliability cost by 82.43 %. Moreover, the maintenance cost of the proposed model shows an improvement of 9.07 % compared to PM model. Finally, the total annual costs show an improvement of 80.67% due to CM on CBs.Sun, 24 Feb 2019 20:30:00 +0100Conformable Fractional Order Sliding Mode Control for a Class of Fractional Order Chaotic Systems
http://ieco.usb.ac.ir/article_4463_0.html
In this paper, a novel conformable fractional order (FO) sliding mode control technique is studied for a class of FO chaotic systems in the presence of uncertainties and disturbances. First, a novel FO nonlinear surface based on conformable FO calculus is proposed to design the FO sliding mode controller. Then, asymptotic stability of the controller is derived by means of the Lyapunov direct method via conformable FO operators. The stability analysis is performed in the sliding and reaching phase. In addition, the realization of reaching phase is guaranteed in finite time and the reaching time is calculated analytically. The proposed control approach has some superiorities. Reduction of the chattering phenomenon, high robustness against the uncertainty and external disturbance, and fast convergence speed are the main advantages of the proposed control scheme. Moreover, it has simple calculations because of using conformable FO operators in the control design. The numerical simulations verify the efficiency of the proposed controller.Sun, 24 Feb 2019 20:30:00 +0100Control Law Design with Dead-beat Property in Continuous-Time Dynamical Systems
http://ieco.usb.ac.ir/article_4464_0.html
In this paper, an open loop control scheme is developed in order to design a dead-beat control effort in the high order continuous-time systems. The dead-beat control is really a finite-time control law. In this method, the input signal has been manually selected such that the output signal becomes constant in a finite time. In the LTI systems, having known the step response, a control signal could be exactly selected such a way that the control objective would be met in a finite time. For this end, the dead-beat control problem is firstly investigated in a standard first order system. Then a similar problem is studied in the second order systems. Finally a general design framework would be developed to obtain a dead-beat control policy in the high order continuous-time systems. In the proposed method, the control design problem is deliberately converted into the solution of a linear matrix equation. Therefore the control signal would be determined by solving such an algebraic equation. The proposed procedure is applied in some continuous-time LTI systems. The simulation results are shown effectiveness of the suggested methods for designing of a finite-time control law in the continuous-time systems.Sun, 24 Feb 2019 20:30:00 +0100Application of Covariance Matrix Adaptation-Evolution Strategy to Optimal Portfolio
http://ieco.usb.ac.ir/article_4224_601.html
Capital portfolio management is considered an important issue in the field of economics and its main subject is about the scientific management of combination choice of assets that meet the specific investment objectives. Maximizing returns and minimizing asset risk are the most important goals in the management of the portfolio of capital. This paper proposes two novel risk measures based on the MLP neural networks and prediction intervals (PI). The MLP based risk is constant and assumes that the uncertainty is uniform in the dataset. The second one is a time-varying risk measure that doesn’t assume uniformity condition. After introducing two novel risk measures, a new cost function is presented to consider the expected returns and the involving risk at the same time. Finally, the covariance matrix adaptation evolution strategy (CMA-ES) algorithm is used to obtain the optimal portfolio. The validity of the proposed selection process (including risk measures, cost function, and the optimization method) is tested using the dataset of the 18 shares of the Tehran Stock Exchange, and the results are compared with the obtained portfolio using the conditional value at risk (CVaR) criterion as a well-known benchmark.Sun, 31 Mar 2019 19:30:00 +0100LMI-based Congestion Control Algorithms for a Delayed Network
http://ieco.usb.ac.ir/article_4244_601.html
In this paper buffer dynamic modeling for wireless sensor networks (WSNs) as a highly nonlinear system is accomplished in discrete time and the overall model is gained by blending subsystems obtained based on delay. Based on queue utilization and channel estimation algorithm, congestion is detected and a suitable rate is selected by an adaptive back-off interval selection. In this paper, a new approach is proposed for controller synthesis of our system based on non-quadratic Lyapunov functions, and a controller is designed to stabilize each subsystem. The controller synthesis results are expressed as a set of Linear Matrix Inequalities (LMIs). Moreover, the performance is considered and decay rate is guaranteed. Finally, a set of new LMI-based congestion control schemes (LCC) is obtained for WSNs. The closed-loop systems are globally asymptotically stable (GAS) in case of delay changes resulted from queue size changes. The simulation results using MATLAB and OPNET simulator confirm the effectiveness of our proposed schemes.Sun, 31 Mar 2019 19:30:00 +0100OSA: Orientation Search Algorithm

http://ieco.usb.ac.ir/article_4316_601.html
Double-objective optimization is a wide class of multi-objective optimization problems in different scientific and industrial applications. This paper proposes a method for the problem of constrained double-objective optimization that is called gravitational charged particles optimization (GChPO). The presented algorithm is based on the movement dynamics of charged particles in the electric field. The mass and electric charge of particles vary according to the value of the first and second objective function, respectively. Usually, in multi-objective optimization algorithms, the dominant and non-dominant solutions should be determined in every iteration, which increases the computation cost of the algorithm. In the proposed method, there is no need of determining the dominant and non-dominant solutions in every iteration that decreases the computation time of the algorithm, significantly. Performance of GChPO is evaluated by seven double-objective and four single-objective benchmark problems. The obtained results are compared with the recent multi-objective and well-known single-objective optimization algorithms that indicate not only the presented algorithm can find the Pareto solutions in the double-objective functions but also it performs better than other algorithms, generally.Sun, 31 Mar 2019 19:30:00 +0100Sliding Mode Control of LLC Resonant DC-DC Converter for Wide output voltage Range in Battery ...
http://ieco.usb.ac.ir/article_4351_601.html
In this paper, a sliding mode control of LLC resonant dc-dc converter in low voltage and high current application is presented. The proposed controller operates at two fixed switching frequencies to the battery charger of electric vehicles. In resonant converter, because of the soft switching process, switching loss is negligible and converters can be designed at high frequencies to reduce the size, weight and price. To analyze this convertor the harmonic approximation method with state space equation is used. Taking advantage of the approximations used in order to avoid uncertainty, sliding mode control method is used. The mentioned convertor with the proposed controlled is exploited within three switching frequency bands that are lower than resonant frequency, resonant frequency and above resonant frequency. Due to the robustness of the sliding mode control, the output voltage regulation occurs with minimum distortion under a wide variation of input voltage, output voltage and output current. As a result, the battery life increases. In order to verify the results and effectiveness of the proposed converters, the prototype of LLC resonant converters Simulation and experimental results for the input voltage 300-420 V dc, output voltage 36-72 V dc and current output (0-11 A) is presented. The prototype achieves a peak efficiency value of 96%.Sun, 31 Mar 2019 19:30:00 +0100Efficiency improvement and inrush current reduction in a non-isolated DC-DC converter
http://ieco.usb.ac.ir/article_4352_601.html
DC–DC boost converters are unable to provide high step-up voltage gains due to the effect of power switches, rectifier diodes, and the equivalent series resistance of inductors and capacitors. A high step-up DC-DC converter based on the modified SEPIC converter is presented in this paper. Step up non-isolated converters generally suffer from problems such as high voltage stress and low efficiency. In this study, non-isolated boost converter structures, SEPIC, SEPIC modified circuit, and a proposed converter is studied. Then compare the performance of these typologies is located and presented as a chart. The operation analysis, design procedure for proposed converter is obtaied from 15V input voltage and 150V output voltage and with 100 watts output power. Using the proposed converter, the input inrush current and the invading voltage of the output have decreased. The time response analysis states that the proposed converter acts faster with deployment time than other converters.Sun, 31 Mar 2019 19:30:00 +0100Microgrid frequency control using the virtual inertia and ANFIS-based Controller
http://ieco.usb.ac.ir/article_4353_601.html
the main challenge in associate islanded Micro grid (MG) is the frequency stability due to the inherent low-inertia feature of distributed energy resources. That is why, energy storage devices, are utilized in MGs as the promising sources for grid short-term frequency regulation. Though energy storage devices, improve the dynamic response of the load frequency control system, these devices increase system costs. Moreover, the modification or uncertainty of the system parameters will significantly degrade the performance of the conventional load-frequency control system. This article proposes the implementation of rotating-mass-based virtual inertia in Double-Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) to support the primary frequency control associated an adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Inference System (ANFIS) controller, as the secondary frequency control. The simulation results illustrate that the suggested control scheme ameliorate the dynamic response and performance of the load frequency control system and also the studied islanded MG remains stable, despite severe load variation and parametric uncertainties.Sun, 31 Mar 2019 19:30:00 +0100Kalman Filter-Smoothed Random Walk Based Centralized Controller for Multi-Input Multi-Output ...
http://ieco.usb.ac.ir/article_4354_601.html
In this paper, a novel centralized controller is presented to control multi-input multi-output industrial processes with heavy interactions and significant time-delays. The system model equations are represented in a non-minimal stochastic state-space form. Also, the state and measurement equations respectively use smoothed random walk model and finite impulse response model of the plant. To design the controller, a quadratic cost function is considered. A standard Kalman filter algorithm is used to estimate the state vector of the controller and solve to the discrete algebraic Riccati equation simultaneously. By using the smoothing parameter, the controller behavior can be changed between the Kalman filter random walk controller and the Kalman filter integrated random walk controller. To evaluate the effect of the smoothing parameter the proposed controller is first applied to a single input single output system. Then an industrial-scale polymerization reactor which has the two-input and two-output system is used to investigate the performance of the designed controller. The simulation results indicate that the controller has a good performance in tracking the set point and robust due to changing the system parameters.Sun, 31 Mar 2019 19:30:00 +0100
