—This paper presents a generic strategy for short-term load forecasting (STLF) based on the support vector regression machines (SVR). Two important improvements to the SVR based load forecasting method are introduced, i.e., procedure for generation of model inputs and subsequent model input selection using feature selection algorithms. One of the objectives(More)
In this paper the use of sparse linear regression algorithms in echo state networks (ESN) is presented for reducing the number of readouts and improving the robustness and generalization properties of ESNs. Three data sets with overall 80 tests are used to validate the use of sparse linear regression algorithms for echo state networks. It is shown that it(More)
A black-box method for modeling the time-domain response of integrated circuits (ICs) based on echo state networks is proposed. The number and value of the input and feedback delays required for modeling nonlinear systems with memory are detected automatically, and the training procedure is very fast and robust. The resulting models can be implemented in(More)
This paper describes an implementation of a proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controller with an iterative error compensator for a DC brushless motor to improve the quality of a photocopier. The parameters of the iterative error compensator are determined by using particle swarm optimization algorithm. The proposed controller reduces the effects of(More)
