On the Stability and Equilibrium Points of Multistaged SI (n) R Epidemic Models
(Hindawi Publishing, 2015)
This paper relies on the concept of next generation matrix defined ad hoc for a new proposed extended SEIR model referred to as SI(n)R-model to study its stability. The model includes n successive stages of infectious ...
ANN-Based Airflow Control for an Oscillating Water Column Using Surface Elevation Measurements
Oscillating water column (OWC) plants face power generation limitations due to the stalling phenomenon. This behavior can be avoided by an airflow control strategy that can anticipate the incoming peak waves and reduce its ...
On the Use of Entropy Issues to Evaluate and Control the Transients in Some Epidemic Models
This paper studies the representation of a general epidemic model by means of a first-order differential equation with a time-varying log-normal type coefficient. Then the generalization of the first-order differential ...
Supervision of the Infection in an SI (SI-RC) Epidemic Model by Using a Test Loss Function to Update the Vaccination and Treatment Controls
This paper studies and proposes some supervisory techniques to update the vaccination and control gains through time in a modified SI (susceptible-infectious) epidemic model involving the susceptible and subpopulations. ...
Self-Adaptive Global-Best Harmony Search Algorithm-Based Airflow Control of a Wells-Turbine-Based Oscillating-Water Column
The Harmony Search algorithm has attracted a lot of interest in the past years because of its simplicity and efficiency. This led many scientists to develop various variants for many applications. In this paper, four ...
Rotational Speed Control Using ANN-Based MPPT for OWC Based on Surface Elevation Measurements
This paper presents an ANN-based rotational speed control to avoid the stalling behavior in Oscillating Water Columns composed of a Doubly Fed Induction Generator driven by a Wells turbine. This control strategy uses ...
