Tuning of Microgrid Controllers using Cuckoo Search Algorithm

Abstract Microgrid at islanding mode is operated with renewable energy sources like Solar, Wind and non-renewable energy sources like Diesel generator and Battery which supply load to the system efficiently. With the change in load there is frequency deviation and controllers are required. There is a requirement to tune controllers to have optimal utilization of […]

Design of a miniature Servo Controller for a Flow Control Actuator in Aerospace Application

Abstract This paper deals with the design of a miniature servo controller for a short duty flow control actuator. The servo controller is designed for position control of the flow control actuator (FCA) with high accuracy. The flow control actuator in this application demands quick response, fine precision and compact size. The controller is required […]

Comparison of HOG, MSER, SIFT, FAST, LBP and CANNY Features for Cell Detection in Histopathological Images

Abstract Cell segmentation and counting has a very important role in diagnosing diseases and in the treatment process. But the complexity of the histopathological images and the differences in cell groups make this process very difficult, even for an expert. In order to facilitate this process, analysis of histopathological images is performed by using computer […]

Enhancement of power quality using UPQC for a hybrid SOFC and PMSG based wind energy system connected to weak grid

Abstract As the day-by-day the depletion of the existing conventional electrical energy resources and the incorporation of technological developments in various sectors increasing the gap between the generation and demand. These situations demands to think of the renewable energy resources or the combinations of different energy sources as hybrid energy system. This is one of […]

Artificial Neural Network Application for Contingency Ranking Based on Condition Number Incorporating IPFC

Abstract This paper investigates the effect of incorporating an IPFC on Contingency Ranking(CR). The contingencies are ranked based Condition Number (CN) of the Jacobian matrix of Newton- Raphson load flow technique. The contingency ranking was done for single transmission line outage conditions with and without incorporating IPFC. Further, the ranking was done under system load […]
