The traditional iterated prisoner's dilemma (IPD) admits only two possible moves, cooperate (C) and defect (D), with no gradations involved. Nevertheless, when a rational agent perceives or implements a specific behavioral decision, it usually employs qualitative measures of the variables involved. In this paper, we propose an approach to the IPD where the(More)
Proactive preparedness to cope with emergencies, especially those of nature origins, significantly improves the resilience and minimizes the restoration cost of electric power systems. In this paper, a proactive resource allocation model for repair and restoration of potential damages to the power system infrastructure located on the path of an upcoming(More)
This paper presents a significant change in current electric power grid response and recovery schemes by developing a framework for proactive recovery of electric power assets with the primary objective of resiliency enhancement. Within the proposed framework, which can potentially present the next generation decision-making tool for proactive recovery,(More)
An effective preventive maintenance program plays a critical role in improving the reliability of electric power systems. In this paper, the impact of potential damage due to hurricane is incorporated in the power system maintenance scheduling problem. The proposed model considers component deterioration, as well as two competing and independent failure(More)
The main purpose of this paper is to present an Object Oriented Analysis (OOA) of a firm and its accounting and financial environments for the implementation of a working capital management system. The object oriented analysis has been designed so that it can be used by different types and sizes of companies, (e.g., industrial, commercial or service). This(More)
This paper presents a cost-effective system-level restoration scheme to improve power grids resilience by efficient response to the damages due to natural or manmade disasters. A post-disaster decision making model is developed to find the optimal repair schedule, unit commitment solution, and system configuration in restoration of the damaged power grid.(More)
This paper develops an efficient model for power system restoration after natural disasters based on AC power flow constraints. The objective is to derive the optimal restoration schedule in order to minimize the real power load interruptions in the post-disaster phase. The load criticality is represented by using the value of lost load which prioritizes(More)
Numerous applications of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are hindered by the limited battery power of the sensors. Instead of using the fixed amount of battery power, in this paper, we propose to integrate supercapacitors into the sensors, and let the sensors wirelessly harvest the relatively unlimited Radio Frequency (RF) energy for the perpetual operation(More)
Monitoring and adjusting financial health problems play central role in the firm’s performance. Usually, small firms face difficulties in these tasks for lacking human resources and incapacity to afford a consultant. By analyzing the nature of the diagnosis and the solution of financial problems one can identify two different reasoning: during the diagnosis(More)
In this paper, Petri Nets are used to model controls for a manufacturing plan processed in a Computer-Integrated Assembly Cell. The Control Model is automatically generated from the manufacturing plan and used to detect deadlocks at the workstations. Deadlocks are avoided by reallocating buffer capacities at these critical workstations. The Control Model is(More)
