PURPOSE To use a new methodological approach, based on luminance noise, to assess without bias the relative damage of blue-yellow and red-green pathways in ocular hypertension and glaucoma and to correlate obtained measurements with clinical markers of disease progression. METHODS A psychophysical procedure modified from Cambridge color test was used to(More)
Keywords: Mixed-integer linear programming Renewable energy park Scheduling Virtual power producer a b s t r a c t In the energy management of the isolated operation of small power system, the economic scheduling of the generation units is a crucial problem. Applying right timing can maximize the performance of the supply. The optimal operation of a wind(More)
It has often been postulated that asymmetries in performance within the visual field (VF) are not characteristic of early visual processing. Here, human retinal (naso/temporal), cortical (left/right) and superior/inferior patterns of asymmetry were explored with achromatic contrast sensitivity (CS) tasks, that probed distinct spatiotemporal frequency(More)
PURPOSE We aimed to evaluate the ability of new psychophysical discrimination tests, based on readily available hardware, to probe motion, achromatic, and chromatic contrast sensitivity, across the natural history of glaucoma. We assessed the sensitivity of these tests to detect functional damage at ocular hypertension stage, using receiver operating(More)
Price-based demand response is applied to electric power systems. Demand elasticity and consumer response enables load reduction. The methodology is implemented in the DemSi demand response simulator. Competitive electricity markets have arisen as a result of power sector restructuration and power system deregulation. The players participating in(More)
This paper addresses the problem of energy resource scheduling. An aggregator will manage all distributed resources connected to its distribution network, including distributed generation based on renewable energy resources, demand response, storage systems, and electrical gridable vehicles. The use of gridable vehicles will have a significant impact on(More)
