Optimal replacement strategy for residential solar panels using monte carlo simulations and nonlinear optimization methods (2017-05)The purpose of this analysis is to determine the optimal replacement strategy for a residential photovoltaic (PV) array. Specifically, the optimal year and number of solar modules that should be replaced on a residential ...
(2016)Let $I$ and $O$ denote two sets of vertices, where $I\cap O =\Phi$, $|I| = n$, $|O| = r$, and $B_u(n,r)$ denote the set of unlabeled graphs whose edges connect vertices in $I$ and $O$. It is shown that the following ...
(2016-04)The scholarly study of design continues to develop new knowledge through a variety of approaches. Some researchers examine how designers work, and many develop new methods to help designers do design tasks. Studying ...
(2015-12)Design space exploration (DSE) is becoming increasingly complex as the number of tunable design parameters increases in cutting edge CPU designs. The advent of 3D integration compounds the problem by expanding the architectural ...
