INVITATION TO PARTICIPATION AND CALL FOR PAPERS

in the session:

NEURO-FUZZY-GENETIC MODEL IDENTIFICATION AND

PREDICTION TECHNIQUES IN POWER ENGINEERING

at

The First International Workshop on Soft Computing
and Emerging Technology - SET'98
organized by BISC Special Interest Group in
Earth Science and Berkeley Initiative in Soft Computing
(www.bisc.lbl.gov/biscwork.htm)

as constituent of

The Fourth Joint Conference on Information Science JCIS'98 Oct. 98,
Research Triangle Park (www.ee.duke.edu/~gu/JCIS98).

The purpose of the session:

The electrical power industry is shifting from a fully regulated to a
competitive deregulated scenario. This new trend brings new
requirements on load forecasting, regulation, stability,
system-wide management, precision, performance, speed in identification,
and prediction methods in the field of Power Engineering. Soft computing
techniques including fuzzy logic, neural computing, and genetic
computing
will have great impact on the development of new methods and tools in
the power industry in the future. The aim of this session is to present
the research and practical application of soft computing techniques
in the field of the Power Engineering.

The session includes (but is not limited to):

Short and Medium Term Load Forecasting,
Long Term Energy Consumption Forecasting,
Transient Stability,
Contingency,
Fault Diagnosis,
Planning,
Restoration,
Protection.
