Proceedings of the 12th WSEAS International Conference on AUTOMATIC CONTROL, MODELLING & SIMULATIONPlenary Lecture 1Nested Models Implemented in Nested TheoriesProfessor Eugene KindlerFaculty of ScienceUniversity of OstravaStreet 30. dubna 22, CZ - 701 03 OstravaCZECH REPUBLICE-mail: ekindler@centrum.czAbstract: Systems developed with human influence are often facilitated by sophisticated information processingcomponents that influence the behavior of the system itself. They can be automatic control automata and/or humans.When it is necessary exactly to model such systems (e.g. for their analysis but especially for their simulation) thedesire is to have a tool for their exact describing, with a possibility to use the description in further phases of the work(namely for implementing simulation models) but also for readable communication on the concerned system withother engaged persons. Problems rise in case the described system has an information processing unit that handlesan internal model of a certain system which would demand the same tool. This system can be similar to the wholesystem or not. Examples of the spectrum illustrating that (non-)similarity will be given.The solution consists in building formal theories in that elements occur that are carriers of other formal theories.These "local" formal theories may use some information of the "world" in that their carriers occur, i.e. may point outfrom them and penetrate to the formal theory used for describing the system in that the carriers occur and that can beinfluenced by those carriers. In case we desire to have tools suitable applicable for implementing computer models,the formal theories can be suitable formulated in object-oriented programming languages that are also block-orientedand agent-oriented.The characteristics of such languages that would distinguish them from "poor" programming tools will be presented,together with applications in logistics, production, graphics and environmental science.Brief Biography of the Speaker:Eugene Kindler was born in 1935, studied mathematics at Charles University in Prague, (Czechoslovakia) and thencomputer science at the Research Institute of Mathematical Machines in Prague.

Proceedings of the 12th WSEAS International Conference on AUTOMATIC CONTROL, MODELLING & SIMULATIONPlenary Lecture 2Discrete Event Formalisms for Workflow throughput DiagnoseAssociate Professor Calin I. Ciufudean"Stefan Cel Mare" Universtity of SuceavaFaculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer ScienceDepartment of Automatics and Computers9, University str., RO720225, SuceavaROMANIAE-mail: ciufudean.calin@yahoo.comAbstract: We focus on estimating the throughput of a workflow modelled with stochastic Petri nets (SPNs). Weconsider this discussion important, as there is a lot of confusion about the definition of the risk and the reliability offlexible manufacturing system analysis, both being risk analysts and decision makers. We propose an approach forthis analysis by using a new model for artificial social systems (ASSs) behaviours, and by introducing equivalenttransfer functions for SPNs.ASSs exist in practically every multi-agent system, and play a major role in the performance and effectiveness chartof the agents. ASS allows agents to coexist in a shared environment and pursue their respective goals in thepresence of other agents.This is the reason why we introduce a suggestive model for ASSs. To model complex systems, such as flexiblemanufacturing ones, a class of Petri nets is adopted, and briefly introduced. This class allows representing the flow ofphysical resources and control information data of the ASSs components. In the analysis of SPN we use simulationsin respect to timing parameters in a generalized semi-Markov process (GSMP). By using existing results onperturbation analysis (e.g., delays in supply with raw materials, equipment failure, etc.), and by extending them tonew physical interpretations we address unbiased sensitivity estimators correlated with practical solutions in order toattenuate the perturbations.The novelty of the approach is that the construction of large Markov chains is not required. Using a structuraldecomposition, the construction system is divided into cells. We can simplify the structure of the SPN using thepresented approach, which is useful when we deal with complex Petri nets, and we need to simplify these structures(e.g. graphs) in order to analyze them properly. For each cell a Markov model was derived and the probability wasdetermined of at least Ni working machines in cell i, for i = 1, 2, .., n and j, where j = 1, ..., m, working materialhandling system (MHS) at time t, where Ni and j satisfy the system production capacity requirements. An exampleillustrates this approach. The results reported here form the basis of several enhancements, such as conductingperformance studies of complex systems with multiple part types.Brief Biography of the Speaker:• Honorary Member of the Romanian Society of Electrical & Control Engineering - Member of the RomanianTechnical Experts Corp.• Technical Expert of the Romanian Ministry of Justice.• President of the Romanian Society of Electrical & Control Engineering, Suceava Branch.• Academic Positions: Assoc.

Proceedings of the 12th WSEAS International Conference on AUTOMATIC CONTROL, MODELLING & SIMULATIONPlenary Lecture 4Improving Monitoring, Control and Protection of Power Grid Using Wide Area Synchro-Phasor MeasurementsProfessor Hamid BentarziDGEE, FSI, Boumerdes UniversityALGERIAE-mail: bentarzi_hamid@yahoo.comAbstract: When disturbances occur in power grid, monitoring, control and protection systems are required to stop thegrid degradation, restore it to a normal state, and hence minimize their effects. However, in wide area power gridresulting from large extension and interconnection with neighbor grids, classical systems based on local independentmeasurements and decisions are not able to consider the overall power grid disturbances and then they are not ableto avoid the blackout. The introduction of the advanced measurement and communication technologies in thesesystems may provide better ways to detect rapidly these disturbances and protect the overall grid from thepropagation of the fast-cascading outages. Indeed, the observability of the wide area power system dynamicsbecomes feasible through the use of these recent developed technologies. Using wide area real-time synchro-phasormeasurement system based on Phasor Measurement Units (PMUs), different types of wide area protection,emergency control and optimization systems can be designed and implemented. In this talk we discuss newtechnologies that allow wide area grid to be well monitored, controlled and protected against any disturbances. At thebeginning, we present the different steps which may be followed in order to develop PMU based Wide areameasurement system taking into count quality of the power grid dynamics observability. After that, we discuss how toimprove monitoring, control and protection integrated system for wide area power grid. We have already designedand implemented PMU based wide area synchro-phasor measurement system through the use of the newtechnologies as well as we have tested its performances for showing its experimental evaluation. Besides, we havedeveloped some applications where these advanced technologies have been used. We will end up this talk bypresenting our research work results related to this subject.Brief Biography of the Speaker:Hamid BENTARZI was born in Boumerdes, Algeria.

Proceedings of the 12th WSEAS International Conference on AUTOMATIC CONTROL, MODELLING & SIMULATIONPlenary Lecture 6Method for Classification in Interval-Valued Information SystemsProfessor Amaury A. CaballeroDepartment of Electrical and Computer EngineeringFlorida International University10555 W. Flagler StreetMiami, FloridaUSAE-mail: caballer@fiu.eduAbstract: Due to its importance in a number of fields, the problem of classification or classes discrimination ininformation systems has been approached by multiple authors, and various methods to address this issue have beendeveloped. The combination of rough sets and fuzzy logic for classification is a widely adopted method. Rough settheory helps in minimizing the number of attributes that influence the selection and fuzzy logic permits to discriminatewhen there is more than one possible solution for the same attributes and intervals. Neural networks and informationentropy have also been used to discriminate. When information is diffuse and the number of obtained values for eachattribute is large, such is the number of rules for any type of solution method. Due to this fact, interval-valuedinformation systems have been proposed by several authors, in which an interval of values is defined for eachattribute, moving from the minimum to the maximum obtained values in the database or using the standard deviationfrom the original data to define the minimum and maximum values. Differently from other works, the concept ofinformation measure is used in this paper, together with a fuzzy logic discrimination tool. Using these concepts, anattribute reduction is initially obtained and then fuzzy logic is applied for discriminating among the possible solutions.The method results simpler than others, and as accurate as the methods usually employed.Brief Biography of the Speaker:Amaury A.

Some of the features of these algorithms are: Finite timeconvergence to zero of the learning error, guaranteed by stability analysis, robustness with respect to input andexternal perturbations and easy for computer implantation.The presentation includes identification and control applications in order to illustrate the feasibility of the approach.The plenary speech will contemplate the following topics:- VSC-based algorithms for a single neuron and for multilayer NN.- Dynamical filter-weights Neuron.- Dynamic NN VSC- based Adaptive Control of a Class of unknown Nonlinear Systems.- On-line Identification of a direct and inverse transfer operator for dynamical systems.- Inverse model-based Control using NN with VSC-based adaptation algorithms.- Model Reference Adaptive Control using a VSC-based Neuron-like virtual model.- Further works in the area of VSC-based learning algorithms applications.Brief Biography of the Speaker:Francklin Rivas-Echeverria Systems Engineer, MSc. in Control Engineering and Applied Science Doctor.
