The Auxiliary Vector (AV) algorithm iteratively generates a sequence of filters that converge to the Minimum Variance Distortionless Response filter. The early, nonasymptotic elements generated by this algorithm offer favorable bias/variance characteristics and outperform in mean-square filter estimation error, filters generated by other iterative methods.(More)
A new robust Kalman filter is proposed that detects and bounds the influence of outliers in a discrete linear system, including those generated by thick-tailed noise distributions such as impulsive noise. Besides outliers induced in the process and observation noises, we consider in this paper a new type called structural outliers. For a filter to be able(More)
The ability to detect defects on hardwood trees and logs holds great promise for the hardwood forest products industry. At every stage of wood processing, there is a potential for improving value and recovery with knowledge of the location, size, shape, and type of log defects. This paper deals with a new method that processes hardwood laser-scanned surface(More)
In the recent years, Phasor Measurement Unit (PMU) based Wide Area Measurement System (WAMS) has been receiving ever increasing attention from the academia as well as from the industry. Power utilities have been designing and implementing WAMS to provide more intelligent monitoring, control, and protection of the power grid. In order to achieve real-time(More)
It has been observed that the French electric load series possesses outliers and breaks. Outliers are deviant data points while breaks are lasting abrupt changes in the stochastic pattern of the series. It turns out that outliers and breaks significantly degrade the reliability and accuracy of conventional day-ahead estimation and forecasting methods.(More)

The declining reliability of the US electric power system is raising major concerns amongst both politicians and power engineers in the USA. One of the reasons put forward by the North Electric Reliability Council (NERC) is the detrimental role played by the protection systems during large disturbances, which tend to help the perturbations to propagate(More)
