Description


Intelligence is defined by the ability to optimize, manage and reconcile the currents of physical, economic and even social flows. The strong constraint of immediacy proves to be an opportunity to imagine, propose and deliver solutions on the common basis of optimization techniques.

Metaheuristics for Intelligent Electrical Networks analyzes the use of metaheuristics through independent applications but united by the same methodology.
It addresses the opening towards SmartGrid and MicroGrid technologies, redefining the approach and arousing a new enthusiasm for the control of complexity. The concept of scale is studied via the coupling of information across levels of scale.

In this book, the field of investigation is essentially multidisciplinary. The massive contribution of the “data” reinforces the need to link problematic physics, fields of optimization and the quantitative value of data.
