A new hybrid particle swarm optimization (PSO) that incorporates a wavelet-theory-based mutation operation is proposed. It applies the wavelet theory to enhance the PSO in exploring the solution space more effectively for a better solution. A suite of benchmark test functions and three industrial applications (solving the load flow problems, modeling the(More)
—An improved hybrid particle swarm optimization (PSO)-based wavelet neural network (WNN) for Modeling the development of Fluid Dispensing for Electronic Packaging (MFD-EP) is presented in this paper. In modeling the fluid dispensing process, it is important to understand the process behavior as well as determine the optimum operating conditions of the(More)
The aim of the paper is to investigate the bifurcation behavior of the power-factor-correction (PFC) boost converter under a conventional peak current-mode control. The converter is operated in continuous-conduction mode. The bifurcation analysis performed by computer simulations reveals interesting effects of variation of some chosen parameters on the(More)
SUMMARY This paper investigates the fast-scale instability in a power-factor-correction (PFC) boost converter under a conventional average current-mode control. The converter is operated in continuous mode. Computer simulations and theoretical analysis are performed to study the eeects of the time-varying input voltage under the variation of some chosen(More)
