Application of Artificial Neural Networks

Part of the Signals and Communication Technology book series (SCT)


The signal processing methods and algorithms described in preceding chapters were expressed in form of explicit equations, transfer functions and/or logic rules, either in crisp or in fuzzy versions. There are, however, specific tasks and power system operation conditions when, especially for the problems that are complex and difficult to express in terms of traditional means, other solutions should be applied. In such situations, both for signal processing and decision making Artificial Neural Networks may constitute a good solution.
