Emotion recognition from speech has noticeable applications in the speech-processing systems. In this paper, the effect of using a rich set of features including formant frequency related, pitch frequency related, energy, and the two first mel-frequency cepstral coefficients (MFCCs) on improving the performance of speech emotion recognition systems is(More)
Due to deregulation of electricity industry, accurate load forecasting and predicting the future electricity demand play an important role in the regional and national power system strategy management. Electricity load forecasting is a challenging task because electric load has complex and nonlinear relationships with several factors. In this paper, two(More)
The main contribution of this paper is to propose a nonlinear robust controller to synchronize general chaotic systems, such that the controller does not need the information of the chaotic system’s model. Following this purpose, in this paper, two methods are proposed to synchronize general forms of chaotic systems with application in secure communication.(More)
Addressing performance degradations in end-to-end congestion control has been one of the most active research areas in the last decade. Active queue management (AQM) is a promising technique to congestion control for reducing packet loss and improving network utilization in transmission control protocol (TCP)/Internet protocol (IP) networks. AQM policies(More)
Intrusion detection is well-known as an essential component to secure the systems in Information and Communication Technology (ICT). Based on the type of analyzing events, two kinds of Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) have been proposed: anomaly-based and misuse-based. In this paper, three-layer Recurrent Neural Network (RNN) architecture with categorized(More)
In recognition of emotional speech, the performance of automatic speech recognition (ASR) systems is degraded significantly. To improve the recognition rate of ASR systems, we can neutralize the Mel-frequency cepstral coefficients (MFCCs) of emotional speech as the most frequently used features in ASR. In this way, the neutralized MFCCs are used in a hidden(More)
Environmental concerns, increasing gasoline demand together with unpopularity of alternative energy sources to propel vehicles, have pushed on hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) solutions. The main problem in battery management of HEVs is how to determine the battery state of charge (SOC). Estimation of SOC is an active area of research, and several approaches(More)
Fault diagnosis of analog circuits is a key problem in the theory of circuit networks and has been investigated by many researchers in recent decades. In this paper, an active filter circuit is used as the circuit under test (CUT) and is simulated in both fault-free and faulty conditions. A modular neural network model is proposed in this paper for soft(More)
With the growing of computer networks, the number of attacks has grown extensively. Intrusion detection system (IDS) is known as a critical technology to help protection. In this paper, a hybrid misuse-based IDS, using combined structure of an association rule mining algorithm and a connectionist model, is presented. The key idea is to take advantage of(More)
Artificial neural networks have been widely used in time series prediction. In this paper, multi-layer feedforward neural networks with optimized structures, using particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm, are used for hourly load prediction based on load time series of IEEE Reliability Test System. To have a small and appropriate feature subset, a(More)
