A chaotic coyote optimization algorithm based on inverse time-decay operator(ICCOA) is proposed to solve the coyote optimization algorithm(COA), such as the poor performance and low diversity. Firstly, the inverse time decay weight factor is added in the process of individual iterative updating, so as to maintain the balance between global search and local development ability and improve the search speed of the algorithm. Secondly, add the chaotic interference mechanism based on Tent chaotic map, some poor individuals in the population were mapped to produce new individuals, thus increasing

By integrating renewable energy sources (RESs) with electric vehicles (EVs) in microgrids, we are able to reduce carbon emissions as well as alleviate the dependence on fossil fuels. In order to improve the economy of an integrated system and fully exploit the potentiality of EVs’ mobile energy storage while achieving a reasonable configuration of RESs, a cooperative optimization method is proposed to cooperatively optimize the economic dispatching and capacity allocation of both RESs and EVs in the context of a regional multi-microgrid system. An across-time-and-space energy transmis

In this paper, we investigate the ensemble controllability and reachability for a family of Boolean control networks (BCNs). First, BCNs are converted to discrete-time linear dynamics by the semi-tensor product. Then the ensemble controllability of BCNs is studied via a free control sequence and input Boolean network, respectively. Some necessary and sufficient conditions are obtained to judge the ensemble controllability. The existence of the input Boolean network for the ensemble controllability is also discussed. When there are unknown inputs in BCNs, necessary and sufficient conditions

Reservoir computing is a computational framework suited for temporal/sequential data processing. It is derived from several recurrent neural network models, including echo state networks and liquid state machines. A reservoir computing system consists of a reservoir for mapping inputs into a high-dimensional space and a readout for pattern analysis from the high-dimensional states in the reservoir. The reservoir is fixed and only the readout is trained with a simple method such as linear regression and classification. Thus, the major advantage of reservoir computing compared to other recurr

This paper proposes an efficient exact algorithm for the general single-machine scheduling problem where machine idle time is permitted. The algorithm is an extension of the authors’ previous algorithm for the problem without machine idle time, which is based on the SSDP (Successive Sublimation Dynamic Programming) method. We first extend our previous algorithm to the problem with machine idle time and next propose several improvements. Then, the proposed algorithm is applied to four types of single-machine scheduling problems: the total weighted earliness-tardiness problem with equal
