Overview

Cutting-edge research indicates that evolutionary programming is set to emerge as the dominant optimisation technique in the fast-changing power industry. Combining theory and practice, Intelligent System Applications in Power Engineering capitalises on the potential of neural networks and evolutionary computation to resolve real-world power engineering problems such as load forecasting, power system operation and planning optimisation. Unlike existing optimisation methods, these novel computational intelligence techniques provide power utilities with innovative solutions for improved performance. Features include:
* Introduction to evolutionary programming and neural networks serving as a foundation for later discussion of the benefits of hybrid systems
* Practical application of evolutionary programming to reactive power planning and dispatch for speedy, cost-effective increases in transmission capacity plus generator parameter estimation
* Examination of economic dispatch, power flow control in FACTS and co-generation scheduling and fault diagnosis for HVDC systems and transformers
* Consideration of power frequency and harmonic evaluation to maximise supply quality
* Employment of distance protection, faulty section estimation and calculation of fault clearing time for transient stability assessment Graduate students in electric power engineering will value Lai s broad coverage of the applications of evolutionary programming and neural networks in the field. This unique reference will be a boon to engineers, computer application specialists, consultants and utility managers wishing to understand the benefits intelligent systems can bring to the power industry.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"It is apparent that most topics are well described, but some lack fair treatment...the book is designed better as a reference book...which should help engineers and researchers appreciate the recent advances in this area." (Power Engineering Journal, February 1999)

"This book describes ANNs and extensions...in a general way." (Aslib Book Guide, Vol. 64, No. 1, January 1999)

Inspired by the human brain's parallel structure, intelligent system techniques (artificial neural networks plus evolutionary algorithms) have been applied to electric power engineering projects since the 1980s. In this textbook for advanced graduate courses in electric power engineering and reference for practitioners, Lai (City U., London) presents power engineering optimization applications in this rapidly evolving field. Its first three chapters deal with neural networks, evolutionary computing, and hybridization (the trend in solving increasingly difficult problems). The subsequent chapters treat specific applications of evolutionary programming and neural networks in power systems. Theoretical considerations and cost- effectiveness are not overlooked. Contains supporting formula, figures, and tables. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
