Engineering Research Seminar

Friday, April 19, 2013 from 3:10 pm - 4:00 pm
Roberts Hall, Room 101

"Effects of Environmental Factors on Outages in Power Distribution Systems":

Environment factors including weather and animals are major factors affecting the reliability of power distribution systems. In this presentation, results of an examination of historical data on outages in several cities in Kansas due to different causes will be discussed. Specific patterns observed in outages due to weather and animals will be presented. This will be followed by a discussion of different models based on regression, Bayesian network, wavelets, artificial neural networks, and Adaboost for estimation of outages on overhead distribution lines due to weather and animals. The results obtained from these models will be compared to evaluate their salient features.
