Energy efficiency and balancing is one of the primary challenges for wireless sensor networks (WSNs) since the tiny sensor nodes cannot be easily recharged once they are deployed. Up to now, many energy efficient routing algorithms or protocols have been proposed with techniques like clustering, data aggregation and location tracking etc. However, many of(More)
Traffic patterns in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) usually follow a many-to-one model. Sensor nodes close to static sinks will deplete their limited energy more rapidly than other sensors, since they will have more data to forward during multihop transmission. This will cause network partition, isolated nodes and much shortened network lifetime. Thus, how(More)
With the development of industry, more large-scale non-linear loads are added to existing power systems and they cause the serious power quality (PQ) problems to the nearby sensitive installations more and more. To protect the important loads and mitigate the impact of PQ disturbances on them, various compensating devices are installed. One of the most(More)
