Chaos control of a nonlinear oscillator with shape memory alloy using an optimal linear control: Part I: Ideal energy source
(Nonlinear Dynamics, 2009-01-01) [Artigo]
In this paper, an optimal linear control is applied to control a chaotic oscillator with shape memory alloy (SMA). Asymptotic stability of the closed-loop nonlinear system is guaranteed by means of a Lyapunov function, ...
A novel algorithm for feature selection using Harmony Search and its application for non-technical losses detection
(Computers & Electrical Engineering, 2011-11-01) [Artigo]
Finding an optimal subset of features that maximizes classification accuracy is still an open problem. In this paper, we exploit the speed of the Harmony Search algorithm and the Optimum-Path Forest classifier in order to ...
Multiobjective 0-1 integer programming for the use of sugarcane residual biomass in energy cogeneration
(International Transactions in Operational Research, 2011-09-01) [Artigo]
It is well known that Brazil is the largest producer of sugarcane in the world. Nevertheless, a great concern exists about the crop system used, because the most common practice is manual harvesting with prior straw burning. ...
Interior-exterior point method with global convergence strategy for solving the reactive optimal power flow problem
(International Journal Of Electrical Power &energy Systems, 2015-03-01) [Artigo]
This paper proposes a predictor-corrector primal-dual modified log-barrier interior-exterior point method with global convergence and cubic fitting strategies for solving the Reactive Optimal Power Flow (ROPE) problem. The ...
Predictor-Corrector Primal-Dual Interior Point Method for Solving Economic Dispatch Problems: A Postoptimization Analysis
(Mathematical Problems in Engineering, 2012-01-01) [Artigo]
This paper proposes a predictor-corrector primal-dual interior point method which introduces line search procedures (IPLS) in both the predictor and corrector steps. The Fibonacci search technique is used in the predictor ...
