  • Robbins, Brett Andrew (2015-03-26)
    In this thesis, we propose a hierarchical control architecture for voltage in power distribution networks where there is a separation between the slow time-scale, in which the settings of conventional voltage regulation ...

  • Uribe Meneses, Cesar Augusto (2018-07-09)
    A distributed system is composed of independent agents, machines, processing units, etc., where interactions between them are usually constrained by a network structure. In contrast to centralized approaches where all ...

  • Ghaderi Dehkordi, Javad (2013-08-22)
    Random access schemes are simple and inherently distributed, yet could provide the striking capability to match the optimal throughput performance (maximum stability region) of centralized scheduling mechanisms. The ...
