In the area of home security and protection, vision-based home automation systems (HAS) play a significant role. In this paper, we present the design and implementation of a smart HAS with incorporated intrusion detection to minimize damages caused by burglary. In addition, the proposed HAS integrates a web server to home appliances in order to remotely(More)
Power systems in large geographic environments experience diverse weather phenomena. Due to spatial separation and economic diversification, load centres will exhibit differing electrical demand. This diversity of weather and electric loads proves challenging for load forecasters using a single aggregate model. In such systems, aggregate response of these(More)
Short-term load forecasting (STLF) is an essential procedure for effective and efficient realtime operations planning and control of generation within a power system. It provides the basis for unit-commitment and power system planning procedures, maintenance schedul‐ ing, system security assessment, and trading schedules. It establishes the generation,(More)
