As the demand for energy continues to grow, optimization has risen to the forefront of power engineering research and development. Continuing in the bestselling tradition of the first edition, Electric Power System Applications of Optimization, Second Edition presents the theoretical background of optimization from a practical power system point of view, exploring advanced techniques, new directions, and continuous application problems.
The book provides both the analytical formulation of optimization and various algorithmic issues that arise in the application of various methods in power system planning and operation. The second edition adds new functions involving market programs, pricing, reliability, and advances in intelligent systems with implemented algorithms and illustrative examples. It describes recent developments in the field of Adaptive Critics Design and practical applications of approximate dynamic programming. To round out the coverage, the final chapter combines fundamental theories and theorems from functional optimization, optimal control, and dynamic programming to explain new Adaptive Dynamic Programming concepts and variants.
With its one-of-a-kind integration of cornerstone optimization principles with application examples, this second edition propels power engineers to new discoveries in providing optimal supplies of energy.
In view of Professor Wendell Fleming's many fundamental contributions, his profound influence on the mathematical and systems theory communi- ties, his service to the profession, and his dedication to mathematics, we have invited a number of leading experts in the fields of control, optimiza- tion, and stochastic systems to contribute to this volume in his honor on the occasion of his 70th birthday. These papers focus on various aspects of stochastic analysis, control theory and optimization, and applications. They include authoritative expositions and surveys as well as research papers on recent and important issues. The papers are grouped according to the following four major themes: (1) large deviations, risk sensitive and Hoc control, (2) partial differential equations and viscosity solutions, (3) stochastic control, filtering and parameter esti- mation, and (4) mathematical finance and other applications. We express our deep gratitude to all of the authors for their invaluable contributions, and to the referees for their careful and timely reviews. We thank Harold Kushner for having graciously agreed to undertake the task of writing the foreword. Particular thanks go to H. Thomas Banks for his help, advice and suggestions during the entire preparation process, as well as for the generous support of the Center for Research in Scientific Computation. The assistance from the Birkhauser professional staff is also greatly appreciated.
Synthesis and Optimization of DSP Algorithms describes approaches taken to synthesising structural hardware descriptions of digital circuits from high-level descriptions of Digital Signal Processing (DSP) algorithms. The book contains:
-A tutorial on the subjects of digital design and architectural synthesis, intended for DSP engineers,
Synthesis and Optimization of DSP Algorithms is of use both to researchers and students in the field of design automation for DSP systems, and to those wishing to implement state-of-the-art techniques within an Electronic Design Automation framework.
A critical re-examination by American, British and German historians of the history of German liberalism exploring the interconnections between liberal currents in culture, society, and politics.
Aphids are the most important of the sap sucking insects, they are also major pests of agriculture, horticulture and forestry. This book covers the evolution of aphids and their development in relation to specific plants. Optimization is used to explain how modes of feeding and reproduction have affected their size and population structure and led to a very close and specific association with their host plants.
