Multi-verse optimization algorithm- and salp swarm optimization algorithm-based optimization of multilevel inverters
Renewable energy sources are installed into both distribution and transmission grids more and more with the introduction of smart grid concept. Hence, efficient usage of cascaded H-bridge multilevel inverters (MLIs) for power control applications becomes vital for sustainable electricity. Conventionally, selective harmonic elimination equations need to be solved for obtaining optimum switching angles of MLIs. The objective of this study is to obtain switching angles for MLIs to minimize total harmonic distortion. This study contributes to the solution of this problem by utilizing two recently developed intelligent optimization algorithms: multi-verse optimization algorithm and salp swarm algorithm. Moreover, well-known particle swarm optimization is utilized for MLI optimization problem. Seven-level, 11-level and 15-level MLIs are used to minimize total harmonic distortions. Simulation results with different modulation indexes for seven-, 11- and 15-level MLIs are calculated and compared in terms of the accuracy and solution quality. Numerical calculations are verified by using MATLAB/Simulink-based models.

An Adaptive Affinity Matrix Optimization for Locality Preserving Projection via Heuristic Methods for Hyperspectral Image Analysis Authors:Taşkın, Gülşen; Ceylan, Oğuzhan
Publisher and Date:(IEEE-Inst Electrıcal Electronıcs Engıneers Inc, 2019)Locality preserving projection (LPP) has been often used as a dimensionality reduction tool for hyperspectral image analysis especially in the context of classification since it provides a projection matrix for embedding test samples to low dimensional space. However, the performance of LPP heavily depends on the optimization of two parameters of the graph affinity matrix: k-nearest neighbor and heat kernel width, when one considers an isotropic kernel. These two parameters might be optimally ...
Optimal Allocation Of Multi-Type Distributed Generators For Minimization Of Power Losses In Distribution Systems Authors:Ahmadi, Bahman; Ceylan, Oğuzhan; Özdemir, Aydoğan
Publisher and Date:(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2019)Distributed generation (DG), including photovoltaics (PVs), wind turbines (WTs) are becoming vital for Active Distribution Networks (ADN). Therefore, optimal sizing and allocation of these units can improve voltage profiles and reduce active power losses. This study concentrates on optimal allocation and sizing of two kinds of DG units (PVs and WTs) with 1 MW maximum size limits, due to the regulations in Turkey. The Whale optimization algorithm (WOA) and Grey wolf optimization algorithm (GWO) are ...
Information Theoretical Performance Analysis and Optimisation of Cooperative Underwater Acoustic Communication Systems Authors:Nouri, Hatef; Uysal, Murat; Panayırcı, Erdal
Publisher and Date:(Inst Engineering Technology-IET, 2016)In this study the authors investigate the information theoretical limits on the performance of single-carrier cooperative underwater acoustic communication systems in the presence of intersymbol interference. The authors assume decode-and-forward relaying and consider orthogonal half-duplex cooperation. Under the assumptions of sparse and frequency-selective Rician fading channel and non-white correlated Gaussian ambient noise the authors derive expressions for bounds on the individual and achievable ...
