Fatemeh Kiayi; Behnaz Gharekhanlou; Alireza Kashaninya

Volume 10, Issue 02 , Spring 2021, Pages 51-57

Abstract
  Over the years, the design and implementation of fault-tolerant circuits have been one of the main concerns of the designers of electronic devices. Quantum Dot Cellular Automata (QCA) is a low-power, compact technology that is prone to various defects due to its small size. We can categorize these defects ...  Read More

3. A Machine Learning Approach to Detect Energy Fraud in Smart Distribution Network

Mahdi Emadaleslami; Mahmoud-Reza Haghifam

Volume 10, Issue 02 , Spring 2021, Pages 59-66

Abstract
  Electricity utility have long sought to identify and reduce energy fraud as a significant part of non-technical losses (NTL). Generally, to determine customer’s honesty in consumption on-site inspection is vital. Since, inspecting all customers is expensive, utilities look for new ways to reduce ...  Read More

4. Power System Dynamic Stability Improvement Using PSS Equipped with Microcontroller

Azade Abedini; Ghazanfar Shahgholian; Bahador Fani

Volume 10, Issue 02 , Spring 2021, Pages 67-76

Abstract
  In assessing the power system, the most important issue is the system behavior when the system is affect‌ed by a disturbance In some plants in case a small event, oscillations are created that are not easily damped and this lack of damping causes the power plant shut down. So, conditions should be ...  Read More

5. An Optimal Routing Protocol Using Multi-Objective Whale Optimization Algorithm for Wireless Sensor Networks

Seyed Reza Nabavi

Volume 10, Issue 02 , Spring 2021, Pages 77-86

Abstract
  Recently, wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have been used increasingly in military and civilian fields, especially for target tracking and environmental monitoring purposes. The main obstacle in the way of broader use of WSNs is the limited charge of sensors used in these networks. Research has shown ...  Read More
