Pittsburgh, PA: U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Mines, 1994 Jan; :1-287
The Department of Energy, in cooperation with the IEEE Neural Networks Council, Naval Research Laboratory, Electric Power Research Institute, and US Bureau of Mines, sponsored the Adaptive Control Systems Technology Symposium in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania from October 24 to 25, 1994. The theme of the Symposium was High-Tech Controls for Energy and Environment. This extraordinary gathering was designed to bring together individuals from the control systems and computational intelligence communities to focus attention on potential benefits to be derived from the application of adaptive controls to energy and environmental systems. Leading authorities from industry, academic, and government institutions presented tutorial overviews on each of three computational intelligence paradigms -- viz., neural networks, fuzzy logic, genetic algorithms -- identified useful hybrid forms, and introduced intelligent and adaptive control systems concepts and applications. There were also papers presented that focused on specific applications of intelligent control and adaptive control in energy and environmental control systems. Individual papers have been cataloged separately.
