    Abstract: Different methods have been proposed to solve the static transmission network expansion planning (STNEP) problem up to now. But in all of these studies, loading of transmission lines has not been studied using binary particle swarm optimization (BPSO) algorithm. BPSO is a good optimization method to solve nonlinear large-scale problems with discret... Show More

    Abstract: The proposed architecture of a binary artificial neural network is inspired by the structure and function of the major parts of the brain. Consequently it is divided into an input module that resemble the sensory (stimuli) area and an output module similar to the motor (responses) area. These two modules are single layer feed forward neural network... Show More

    Abstract: This paper deals with the identification problem of defective products of door strikers installed in automobiles based on their hammering sounds. The difference of the hammering sounds between defective and acceptable products is very small and each sound signal has a unique pattern. The capabilities of conventional human sensory tests are not enou... Show More
