We investigate a method to improve the position decoding for thick crystal versions (i.e., ≥8 mm) of the continuous miniature crystal element (cMiCE) PET detector by more accurately modeling the detector light response function (LRF). The LRF for continuous detectors varies with the depth of interaction (DOI) of the detected photon. This variation in LRF(More)
The demise of the native franchise markets and emergence of competitive markets for electricity generation service is changing the way that electricity is and will be priced and is making increasingly difficult for market participants to appraise the prospects for the future electricity market. As a result, conventional generation expansion planning (GEP)(More)
The recent movement towards an open, competitive market environment introduced new optimization problems such as market clearing mechanism, bidding decision and Available Transfer Capability (ATC) calculation. These optimization problems are characterized by the complexity of power systems and the uncertainties in the electricity market. Accurate evaluation(More)
Improved market efficiency from combining markets through inter-regional market coordination can lead to significant changes in the consumer and producer surplus of an individual market since inter-regional energy trading can significantly alter energy prices and market shares across various regions. It is necessary to study the impacts of inter-regional(More)
