—This paper presents a new technique for predicting wind speed and direction. This technique is based on using a linear time-series-based model relating the predicted interval to its corresponding one-and two-year old data. The accuracy of the model for predicting wind speeds and directions up to 24 h ahead have been investigated using two sets of data(More)
—This paper presents a novel approach for the classification of power quality disturbances. The approach is based on inductive learning by using decision trees. The wavelet transform is utilized to produce representative feature vectors that can accurately capture the unique and salient characteristics of each disturbance. In the training phase, a decision(More)
This note focuses on extracting and analysing prostate texture features from trans-rectal ultrasound (TRUS) images for tissue characterization. One of the principal contributions of this investigation is the use of the information of the images' frequency domain features and spatial domain features to attain a more accurate diagnosis. Each image is divided(More)
—Recently, integration of distributed generation (DG) in distribution systems has increased to high penetration levels. The impact of DG units on the voltage stability margins has become significant. Optimization techniques are tools which can be used to locate and size the DG units in the system, so as to utilize these units optimally within certain limits(More)
—Distributed measurement architecture, due to its efficiency , is used to monitor the power quality in the electric systems. This paper introduces a novel algorithm to determine the optimum allocations of power quality monitors to reduce the cost of the distributed monitoring system taking into account the data redundancy. The optimization problem is(More)
