This paper presents the tuning of the structure and parameters of a neural network using an improved genetic algorithm (GA). It is also shown that the improved GA performs better than the standard GA based on some benchmark test functions. A neural network with switches introduced to its links is proposed. By doing this, the proposed neural network can… (More)
A fast iterative method is derived for minimum cross entropy thresholding using a one-point iteration scheme. Simulations performed using synthetic generated histograms and a real image show the speed advantage and the accuracy of the iterated version. q 1998 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
—It is well known that sliding-mode control can give good transient performance and system robustness. However, the presence of chattering may introduce problems to the actuators. Many chattering elimination methods use a finite dc gain controller which leads to a finite steady-state error. One method to ensure zero steady-state error is using a… (More)
Recently we have proposed a simple circuit of winner-take-all (WTA) neural network. Assuming no external input, we have derived an analytic equation for its network response time. In this paper, we further analyze the network response time for a class of winner-take-all circuits involving self-decay and show that the network response time of such a class of… (More)
—This paper presents the stability analysis of a fuzzy-model-based control system consisting of a nonlinear plant and a nonlinear state feedback controller and the design of the non-linear gains of the controller. The nonlinear plant is represented by a fuzzy model having rules. A nonlinear state feedback controller is designed to close the feedback loop.… (More)
—This paper presents a neural network with a novel neuron model. In this model, the neuron has two activation functions and exhibits a node-to-node relationship in the hidden layer. This neural network provides better performance than a traditional feedforward neural network, and fewer hidden nodes are needed. The parameters of the proposed neural network… (More)
—This paper presents the stability and robustness analysis for multivariable fuzzy control systems subject to parameter uncertainties based on a single-grid-point (SGP) approach. To perform the analysis, we represent a multivariable nonlinear system using a TS-fuzzy plant model. Three design approaches of fuzzy controllers are introduced to close the… (More)
This paper presents stability analysis of fuzzy model-based nonlinear control systems, and the design of nonlinear gains and feedback gains of the nonlinear controller using a genetic algorithm (GA) with arithmetic crossover and nonuniform mutation. A stability condition is derived based on Lyapunov's stability theory with a smaller number of Lyapunov… (More)
