—Power systems are planned such that they have adequate generation capacity to meet the load, according to a defined reliability target. The increase in the penetration of wind generation in recent years has led to a number of challenges for the planning and operation of power systems. A key metric for generation system adequacy is the capacity value of(More)
This paper describes a novel approach for an advanced reservation protocol, MQoS-NSLP, to provide seamless real-time services to mobile users in wireless integrated services networks. The robustness of the proposed work is the result of a two-fold contribution. The first is the utilization of knowledge about user preferences, goals, and analyzed spatial(More)
A wind power plant (WPP) consists of a large number of turbines interconnected by underground cable. A pad-mounted transformer at each turbine steps up the voltage from a generating voltage (690 V) to a medium voltage (34.5 kV). All turbines in the plant are connected to the substation transformer, where the voltage is stepped up to the transmission level.(More)

The increasing impacts of randomness and variability on modern power systems are changing and will dramatically continue to change patterns of system behavior, how systems are planned, how systems are dispatched, and how energy is exchanged. The existing deterministic approaches primarily used by utilities are based on deterministically established dispatch(More)
This paper presents a novel framework for a predictive service initiation and delivery. The robustness of the proposed work is the result of a two-fold contribution. The first is the utilization of knowledge about user preferences, goals, and analyzed spatial conceptual maps to predict the user future location and traveling trajectory. The second(More)
