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.

Information Theoretical Performance Analysis and Optimisation of Cooperative Underwater Acoustic Communication Systems Authors:Nouri, Hatef; Uysal, Murat; Panayirci, 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 ...
Real time outage information is required to the utility operators for outage management process. In addition to some basic information regarding the outage post-outage system status will help to improve the response to outages and management of system reliability.

Energy management system operators perform regular outage simulations in order to ensure secure operation of power systems. AC power flow based outage simulations are not preferred because of insufficient computational speed. Hence several outage models and computational methods providing acceptable accuracy have been developed. On the other hand double branch outages are critical rare events which can result in cascading outages and system collapse. This paper presents a double branch outage model ...
