An integrated simulation model for analysing electricity and gas systems
This paper aims at analysing the impacts of interdependencies between electricity and natural gas systems in terms of security of energy supply. When analysing both systems several interdependencies can be observed, however, ...
A Self-Adaptive Heuristic Algorithm for Combinatorial Optimization Problems
This paper introduces a new self-tuning mechanism to the local search heuristic for solving of combinatorial optimization problems. Parameter tuning of heuristics makes them difficult to apply, as parameter tuning itself ...
WEEE estimation and determination of collection points: A case for the Municipality of Cankaya
Electrical-electronic waste (WEEE) is generated from electric and electronic devices at the end of their lifecycles. When WEEEs are disposed, burned or disassembled for recycling, they are transformed into products containing ...
Modified self-adaptive local search algorithm for a biobjective permutation flow shop scheduling problem
Interest in multiobjective permutation flow shop scheduling (PFSS) has increased in the last decade to ensure effective resource utilization. This study presents a modified self-adaptive local search (MSALS) algorithm for ...
Performance enhancement of production systems using fuzzy-based availability analysis and simulation method
Due to the complexity of today's engineering systems, accurate system performance analysis is important to obtain a more productive system design. This study introduces a new approach to obtain a new system design considering ...
Airfoil-slat arrangement model design for wind turbines in fuzzy environment
In this study, a multi-element wind turbine blade that consists of NACA 6411 and NACA 4412 leading-edge slat design is investigated computationally. Optimum design parameters of the slatted wind turbine blade leading to ...
