  • Artificial Intelligence for Smarter Power Systems: Fuzzy logic and neural networks
  • The urgent need to reduce carbon emissions is leading to growing use of renewable electricity, particularly from wind and photovoltaics. However, the intermittent nature of these power sources presents challenges to power systems, which need to ensure high and consistent power quality. Going forward, power systems also need to be able to respond to changes in loads, for example from EV charging. Neither production nor load changes can be predicted precisely, and so there is a degree of uncertainty or fuzziness. One way to meet these challenges is to use a kind of artificial intelligence - fuzzy logic. Fuzzy logic uses variables that may be any real number between 0 and 1, rather than either 0 or 1. It has obvious advantages when used for optimization of alternative and renewable energy systems. The parametric fuzzy algorithm is inherently adaptive because the coefficients can be altered to accommodate requirements and data availability. This book focuses on the use of fuzzy logic and neural networks to control power grids and adapt them to changing requirements. Chapters cover fuzzy inference, fuzzy logic-based control, feedback and feedforward neural networks, competitive and associate neural networks, and applications of fuzzy logic, deep learning and big data in power electronics and systems.

  • Handbook of Big Data Analytics. Volume 1: Methodologies
  • Big Data analytics is the complex process of examining big data to uncover information such as correlations, hidden patterns, trends and user and customer preferences, to allow organizations and businesses to make more informed decisions. These methods and technologies have become ubiquitous in all fields of science, engineering, business and management due to the rise of data-driven models as well as data engineering developments using parallel and distributed computational analytics frameworks, data and algorithm parallelization, and GPGPU programming. However, there remain potential issues that need to be addressed to enable big data processing and analytics in real time. In the first volume of this comprehensive two-volume handbook, the authors present several methodologies to support Big Data analytics including database management, processing frameworks and architectures, data lakes, query optimization strategies, towards real-time data processing, data stream analytics, Fog and Edge computing, and Artificial Intelligence and Big Data. The second volume is dedicated to a wide range of applications in secure data storage, privacy-preserving, Software Defined Networks (SDN), Internet of Things (IoTs), behaviour analytics, traffic predictions, gender based classification on e-commerce data, recommender systems, Big Data regression with Apache Spark, visual sentiment analysis, wavelet Neural Network via GPU, stock market movement predictions, and financial reporting. The two-volume work is aimed at providing a unique platform for researchers, engineers, developers, educators and advanced students in the field of Big Data analytics.

  • ICT Solutions and Digitalisation in Ports and Shipping
  • Given the volumes of global ship traffic, solutions are needed to reduce waiting times, costs, energy consumption and emissions. This systematic reference on ICT solutions and digitalisation in the ports and shipping sector covers new and existing technologies, different types of digital systems, and offers illustrative examples and case studies. Coverage includes the following topics: the global trade facilitation regulatory framework and the role of ICT; maritime ports and cybersecurity; e-navigation and shore-based monitoring systems; maritime transportation along the Northern Sea Route; smart shipping beyond e-navigation; maritime communications; emerging radiocommunication technologies in the maritime domain; a data-driven methodology for maritime patterns of life discovery; real-time information with ITS technology; digital supply chain and port information modelling (PIM); ICT innovation in port-hinterland transport services; decarbonisation technologies in shipping and the question of transition fuels; and finally the advent of shore-based navigation: from vessel traffic services (VTS) to e-navigation maritime service portfolio (MSP). The aim of this work is to examine the application of ICT solutions and digitalisation to the movement and clearance of freight at seaports globally. It provides conceptual clarity on the applicability of the different technologies and systems used for this purpose, and the relevance of such projects for different types of ports, from a trade facilitation perspective. It is therefore of particular relevance to researchers, academics, consultants, chief technology officers, and advanced students in the field of freight and logistics, especially in a maritime context. The book is also a valuable reference for anyone involved in port logistics in a managerial or operational capacity, and to port authorities.

image of Behavioural Modelling and Simulation of Bicycle Traffic
  • Behavioural Modelling and Simulation of Bicycle Traffic
  • Cycling is an important part of the urban transport system and short-distance travel in many modern cities around the world. With no emissions and occupying much less road space than cars, bikes are clean and sustainable. Bicycle traffic needs to be tracked and analysed in order to generate reliable predictions and make correct decisions when adapting and building traffic infrastructure, to account for bikes in road traffic systems, and to model and plan interactions between bikes and autonomous vehicles. Offering a systematic analysis of the movements and behaviours of bicycles and their riders, this book discusses data collection and evaluation approaches, and the development of a framework for the theory and modelling of bike traffic followed by model verification techniques and riding characteristics for context. This book contains valuable information for researchers involved with intelligent transportation systems, traffic modelling and simulation, and particularly those with an especial interest in bicycle traffic. The book will also be of interest to advanced students in these and related fields, and transportation policymakers.

image of Overhead Electric Power Lines: Theory and practice
  • Overhead Electric Power Lines: Theory and practice
  • In order to fulfill the tremendous worldwide demand for electrification, power line professionals will need to adopt rapid, reliable and sustainable solutions. For example, in a fast-developing country like India, which had the largest population without electricity in 2014 and 1.34 billion inhabitants in 2017, the demand for electrification is immense. In recent years, a new program facilitated 0.73 million new household connections per month and almost 19000 villages per year. Wide-spread experience in geographical, geological, social and economic diversity leaves no doubt that overhead power lines (OHL) are the only way to provide electricity to communities where underground lines are technically unfeasible or too expensive. This book presents the technology and recent research into OHL in a concise and systematic way. After brief introductory sections, chapters cover line support, foundation and mechanical sag, corona discharge, overhead line insulators and conductors, earthing and earth wire, lightning and surge protection, insulation and coordination, route selection, commissioning, operation and maintenance. This book is a must-read for researchers and experts involved with utilities and particularly for anyone associated with the installation, electrification, operation and maintenance of overhead lines in transmission and distribution networks.
