Vector permutation encoding for the uniform sources

  • Optimal dispatch of generating units of the Itaipu hydroelectric plant

    This paper is concerned with the optimal dispatch of generating units of Itaipu, the world's largest hydroelectric plant in operation. Itaipu is a 12.6 GW hydro plant, located on the Parana river, in South America, composed of 18 identical 700 MW generating units. A dynamic programming model has been developed to optimize the number of generating units in operation at each hour of the day in order to attain the total generation scheduling of the plant in the most economic way. The model highlights the tradeoff between start-up /shut-down of generating units and hydro power efficiency, taking into account variations in tailrace elevation, penstock head losses and turbine-generator efficiencies. The methodology has been tested for a typical generation scheduling, and the results show that the number of the turbine-generator sets dispatched has a major influence on the overall hydroplant efficiency, and therefore it is a key aspect to be considered in the dispatch of hydro generating units. In the case of Itaipu, the economic benefits, in terms of greater power efficiency with respect to actual operation, are in the range of millions of dollars per year.

  • New results on output-feedback variable structure model-reference adaptive control: design and stability analysis

    The variable structure model-reference adaptive control(VS-MRAC) redesign and stability analysis, presented previously by the authors (1993) for the case of plants with relative degree n*/spl les/2, is generalized to the case of arbitrary n*/spl ges/1. This paper presents a complete stability analysis in the general case. The redesign is based on the explicit consideration of input disturbances which may include the disturbance originated by the uncertainty of the plant high-frequency gain. This leads to a considerably simpler and less restrictive stability analysis as well as to a systematic controller design for external disturbance rejection. The overall error system is globally exponentially stable with respect to a small residual set. Robustness to unmodeled dynamics is also discussed.

  • Modeling burst channels using partitioned Fritchman's Markov models

    Discrete models based on functions of Markov chains (also referred to as hidden Markov models or finite-state channel (FSC) models) have been used to characterize the error process in communication channels with memory. One important property of these models is that the probability of any observed sequence can be expressed as a linear combination of the probability of a finite set of sequences of finite length, the so-called basis sequences. In this paper, we express the parameters of a class of FSC models as a simple function of the probability of the basis sequences. Based on this approach, we propose a new method for the parameterization of the Fritchman (1967) channel with single-error state as well as the interesting cases of Fritchman channels with more than one error state and the Gilbert-Elliott channel ((GEC) nonrenewal models). To illustrate the method, FSC models for the nonfrequency- selective Rician fading channel are presented. The number of states and the probability of state transitions are estimated for a given set of fading parameters.

  • Comments on “Finite-Horizon Robust Kalman Filtering for Uncertain Discrete Time-Varying Systems With Uncertain-Covariance White Noises”

    This comment presents an enhancement over the robust predictor recently developed in the work by Dong and You. Besides uncertainties in both state and output matrices, the proposed design also allows dynamic and measurement noises to be with unknown time-variant expected values and to be correlated with unknown time-variant cross-covariance. The enhanced predictor leads to a less conservative design which is confirmed by a numerical example.

  • A rule-based grapheme-phone converter and stress determination for Brazilian Portuguese natural language processing

    This paper presents a grapheme-phone converter and stress determination algorithm based on rules. The proposed set of rules was implemented and tested on a randomly chosen extract of the CETEN-Folha text database. Computer experiments show it is achieve an accuracy of 97.44% and 98.58%, respectively, for the grapheme-phone converter and the stress determination algorithm.

  • Adventures in cubic curve fitting: two optimization techniques and their application to the training of neural networks

    Presents two optimization techniques based on cubic curve fitting; one based on function values and derivatives at two previous points, and another based on derivatives at three previous points. The latter approach is viewed from a derivative space perspective, obviating the need to compute the vertical translation of the cubic, thus simplifying the fitting problem. The authors demonstrate the effectiveness of the second method in training neural networks on parity problems of various sizes, and compare their results to a modified Quickprop algorithm and to gradient descent.<<ETX>>

  • Better than "optimum" homophonic substitution

    A perfect homophonic coding technique is devised for which the number of fair coin tosses to select a homophone is bounded for any source with rational letter probabilities. The new scheme enlarges the source alphabet, which paradoxically generally results in less plaintext expansion than does "optimum" homophonic coding of the unaugmented source.

  • Adoption of new subjects to improve the formation of future engineer

    To the future generations, education is the key for surviving. It is due to the educational institutions to prepare the new professional for next century that is close to start. Humanity has never watched such changes in all levels of life as it has been happening lately. Technological development has increased the quality of human life. There is no doubt that modern man lives more and better. In the future, men will not only live more and better but will also work less and will have more time for entertainment. The future professional of any area has to be prepared to face a world of no borders extremely dynamic and competitive. Added to this particular aspect there are the global economy and the formation of economic blocs. In this context emerged the Mercosul, which is the South America economic bloc. A singularity of this agreement is the concern about education by the four participants Countries that are Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay. The Engineering Faculty of University Center of Lusiada UNILUS-in order to prepare a new engineer capable to face the next century work market has developed a new engineering course. This work shows some details about the engineering course that has included in the curriculum some extra subjects of social sciences. The subjects are philosophy, human resource besides development of projects, assisted training period, management strategies and, for 1999, the inclusion of sociology.
