RESULTS AND DISCUSSION
In order to investigate the performance of SFSA and ISFSA, simulation is carried out to eight test systems with and without integration of renewables. MATLAB 7.8 is the solution platform and the hardware configuration is Intel core i5 processor with 2GHz speed and 4 GB RAM.
Parameter Selection of SFSA
As SFSA is a heuristic method, it also requires optimal tuning parameter to discover global optima solution. In order to investigate best optimal tuning parameter of SFSA, it is applied on the 10-unit test system having non convex fuel cost characteristic due to VPL effect. Twenty-five independent run were conducted with different start point (NP) and maximum diffusion number (MDN). The statistical results are tabulated

The outcome of simulation result is tabulated in Table 7.2. Here it is observed that results in terms of cost, standard deviation and also the CPU time get improved with respect to SFSA technique. Comparison of results of SFSA and ISFSA is presented in Table 7.3 and convergence characteristics is shown in Fig-7.1.

Second test system is 13-unit with VPL and without losses. It is observed here that results obtained by SFSA are better than any reported results in literature.
Test system I: 10-unit system with VPL
This test system has ten thermal generating units with non-smooth cost function and emission. VPL effects are included in the cost function. Transmission line losses are also considered here. The entire data for this system is adopted from [11] with power demand of 2000 MW. The simulation result obtained by SFSA in terms of minimum cost is 111497.630825 $/h whereas minimum emission is 4572.16811ton/h. Table-7.4 depicts the optimum power generation for each individual case i.e. Best Cost Solution(ELD), Best Emission Solution(EED) and best compromise

    Those values were 3.6 for area, 25.3 for volume, and 10.8 for density. After that the percent uncertainty was calculated by using the formula 100(uncertainty)/(original value). The values for area, volume, and density are 1.53, 4.23, and 4.09. The expected percentage was then calculated by adding up the percentages from the dimensions used in calculating the quantity. For area the expected was 1.52, the volume 4.23, and for density 4.29.…

    Of these, five segments qualify as reportable segments by passing one of the 10% tests. However, their combined revenues from sales to unaffiliated customers total only 70% of the combined unaffiliated revenues from all operating segments. Should the remaining five operating segments be aggregated and shown as an “other segments” category? Explain. No, because if the combined external revenues of the reportable segments is less than 75% of the combined external revenues from all operating segments, then additional segments must be identified as reportable segments until the 75% revenue test is met.…

    The average rate constant for a given temperature was found by plotting the temperature in Kelvins and the tabulated A value along with the E_a value found above, and the graph was plotted to the form of the Arrhenius equation (see graph 4 of results). The results were exactly linear with an R² value of one. This exact value occurred because only one data point from results of this investigation was used to find the model and hence all the other data points on the graph are the predicted ln(k) values according to the equation. These points are still considered accurate however, as the activation energy found was 97.39% of the tabulated…

    The average heat transfer coefficient for without notched fin is 8.3887 W/m2K whereas for 20% notched fins it is 9.8139 W/m2K. Also the copper gives more heat transfer rate than aluminum plate. Copper plate gives better heat transfer rate than aluminum plate. S. M. Wange, R. M. Metkar did “Computational Analysis of Inverted Notched Fin Arrays Dissipating Heat by Natural Convection” [8]. Experimentation is done for four different cases of inverted notch fin arrays.…

    4. PROPOSED WORK This work 16-bit speculative Han-Carlson adder (HCA) is proposed. Speculative prefix adders can be subdivided in five stages: pre-processing, speculative prefix-processing, post-processing, error detection and error correction. The error correction stage is off the critical path, as it has two clock cycles to obtain the exact sum when speculation fails. 4.1 Pre-processing stage The propagate and generate signals are computed as in equations (1) & (2).…

    After taking the elapsed clock cycles between two successive calls to RDTSC instruction, we can divide it by the CPU clock frequency to get the absolute time. We have run this operation for 50,000 iterations and found the minimum, maximum, average and steady point(mode). We are convinced that “Steady Point” is the best method to measure a quantity because this excludes the outliers and variations that occur in the system. An alternate method is to exclude the 5 minimum and maximum values and compute the average of the remaining values.…

    Here, to examine the success and stiffness of this proposed approach, two cases are considered for the test system as follows. Case I - Single DG placement Case II – Two DG placement Case I - Single DG placement For IEEE 30 bus system the DG units is placed at the location at bus 7 obtained from the maximum MPSI value. The correct size of DG unit in the location is identified as 9.8985 MW. The value of real power losses for this case is observed as 2.15 MW. Case II - Two DGs placement at all identified…

    Criss-cross heat transfer has one more heat exchanger, but the heat load on it is 0.004 kW, whereas the heat loads on both utilities increase by 0.004 kW. The areas do not differ significantly , the difference is 4.104 m2 , which is generated due to the additional heat exchanger. Moreover, for criss-cross heat transfer, heat recovery is 971.996 kW, which is a lower value than for vertical heat transfer, because slack variables were compensated by the use of utilities. Therofore, the total utility cost is approximately the same, whereas the annualised capital cost difference is about 300 $/yr. The heat load compensated by utilities in the basence of slack variables can be considered as a round-off and added to constraint equation of energy balances of hot and cold streams.…
