The inertia weight is often used to control the global exploration and local exploitation abilities of particle swarm optimizers (PSO). In this paper, a group of strategies with multi-stage linearly-decreasing inertia weight (MLDW) is proposed in order to get better balance between the global and local search. Six most commonly used benchmarks are used to(More)
Conductor galloping may cause flashovers and even tower collapses. The available conductor galloping monitoring methods often employ acceleration sensors to measure the conductor translations without considering the conductor twist. In this paper, a new sensor for monitoring conductor galloping of transmission lines based on an inertial measurement unit and(More)
— Many studies about the compliant mechanisms has been done and most of them are planar configurations. Spherical linkages, as a transition between planar and spatial linkages, play an important role in the modern precision instruments and robots. In this paper, we explore spherical linkage designs from available compliant planar linkages with a method(More)
In traditional rear trunk lid designs, extra devices (e.g., hydraulic actuators and spring mechanisms) are employed to compensate the lid weight and reduce the efforts for both opening and closing it. Such devices often consist of a number of parts, thus leading to high costs for manufacture, assembly and maintenance. In this paper, we designed a compliant(More)
