Electric Power Applications of Fuzzy Systems



Electric Power Applications of Fuzzy Systems

Dr. Mohamed E. El-Hawary (Editor)

ISBN: 978-0-780-31197-8 June 1998 Wiley-IEEE Press 376 Pages


This book offers an introduction to applications of fuzzy system theory to selected areas of electric power engineering. It presents theoretical background material from a practical point of view and then explores a number of applications of fuzzy systems. Most recently, there has been a tremendous surge in research and application articles on this subject. Until now though, there have been no books that put together a practical guide to the fundamentals and applications aspects. Electric Power Applications of Fuzzy Systems presents, under one cover, original contributions by authors who have pioneered in the application of fuzzy system theory to the electric power engineering field. Each chapter contains both an introduction to and a state-of-the-art review of each application area.
