Mohammad Ahmadi Livani; mahdi Abadi; Meysam Alikhany; Meisam Yadollahzadeh Tabari

Volume 1, Issue 1 , Winter 2013, Pages 1-11

Abstract
  Detecting anomalies is an important challenge for intrusion detection and fault diagnosis in wireless sensor networks (WSNs). To address the problem of outlier detection in wireless sensor networks, in this paper we present a PCA-based centralized approach and a DPCA-based distributed energy-efficient ...  Read More

2. An Enhanced Median Filter for Removing Noise from MR Images

S. Arastehfar; Ali A. Pouyan; A. Jalalian

Volume 1, Issue 1 , Winter 2013, Pages 13-17

Abstract
  In this paper, a novel decision based median (DBM) filter for enhancing MR images has been proposed. The method is based on eliminating impulse noise from MR images. A median-based method to remove impulse noise from digital MR images has been developed. Each pixel is leveled from black to white like ...  Read More

3. An Improved Algorithm for Network Reliability Evaluation

Mohammad Ghasemzadeh

Volume 1, Issue 1 , Winter 2013, Pages 19-25

Abstract
  Binary Decision Diagram (BDD) is a data structure proved to be compact in representation and efficient in manipulation of Boolean formulas. Using Binary decision diagram in network reliability analysis has already been investigated by some researchers. In this paper we show how an exact algorithm for ...  Read More

Muhammad Naeem; Muhammad Bilal Khan; Muhammad Tanvir Afzal

Volume 1, Issue 1 , Winter 2013, Pages 35-47

Abstract
  Expert discovery is a quest in search of finding an answer to a question: “Who is the best expert of a specific subject in a particular domain within peculiar array of parameters?” Expert with domain knowledge in any field is crucial for consulting in industry, academia and scientific community. ...  Read More

6. Protection Scheme of Power Transformer Based on Time–Frequency Analysis and KSIR-SSVM

mehdi hajian; Asghar Akbari Foroud

Volume 1, Issue 1 , Winter 2013, Pages 49-61

Abstract
  The aim of this paper is to extend a hybrid protection plan for Power Transformer (PT) based on MRA-KSIR-SSVM. This paper offers a new scheme for protection of power transformers to distinguish internal faults from inrush currents. Some significant characteristics of differential currents in the real ...  Read More
