multistage interconnection networks based on network functionality, reliability and fault tolerance was presented in order
to emphasize the important principles which differentiate between the network architectures. The various multistage interconnection
network designs provided high performance, availability, throughput, lower latency, less power consumption
along with improved fault-tolerance and reliability. However, there is a rising demand for new fault-tolerant and reliable
multistage interconnection networks.
11. Ramanpreet Kaur, Bikrampal Kaur and Ruchi Pasricha contributed an article titled “A Study of Wireless Body Area Networks

and MAT Lab. The experiments were carried out on the NCBI dataset, and LO weights were assigned to be relevant and
non - relevant for a given user query according to the Tilted Time series and the Cosine similarity score. Results showed
that the proposed model has much better accuracy.
We hope that the quality research work published in this special issue will be able to serve the concerned humanity, science
Welcome to the special issue on “Grid Integration of Renewable Energy Sources” in Recent Advances
in Electrical and Electronics Engineering (EENG). EENG is a peer-reviewed journal that
considers both Research and review based papers.
In most of the countries, renewable energy sources have touched grid parity. The key to increase
the penetration of renewables in the power mix is to have intelligent integration of the renewable
energy sources in the power system network. Integration of intermittent renewable energy sources to
the power system network depends on the scale of power generation. Higher capacity renewables are
connected to the high voltage network and lower capacity renewables are connected in the medium
and low voltage network. There are many technical challenges for integrating the renewables at
higher voltage levels as well as lower voltage levels. It necessitates many technical developments,
for example, in power conditioning devices, to fulfill the necessity for demand flexibility and controllable dispatching of the
The aims of this special issue are to explore the new strategies to overcome the technical challenges of grid integration of
renewable energy sources, such as interconnection (tie-line) capacity among different power system areas (zones), technoeconomic
hybrid system with several types of distributed energy resources, micro-grid and demand-side management capabilities.
IN THIS THEMATIC ISSUE
In the first article, the authors have addressed the problem related to a sudden change in irradiance and temperature, which

reference estimation and the response of injected currents into the grid. As a consequence, rise time and settling time of the DClink
voltage are reduced. Authors have shared extensive MATLAB simulation results for different conditions to validate the
robustness of the controller under changing environmental conditions.
The second article has proposed a Refined Model Predictive Control (RMPC) strategy for controlling a back-to-back three-
Level (3L) Neutral-Point-Clamped (NPC) converter interfacing a PMSG based WECS with the electric grid. The algorithm

Compensator in this article. The configuration proposed by authors has a DSTATCOM, which is fed by a solar photovoltaic
array and PV module to maintain the DC link voltage.
The next article presents the balance of power and voltage of a solid-state transformer for the grid side converter with the
help of the decoupled control technique. Authors of this article have observed that the crossed couple element eliminates by
using decoupling control. It is one of the voltage oriented control techniques. A decoupled control technique allows the bidirectional
power flow and controlling the active power, reactive power and maintaining the steady-state dc interface voltage.
The fifth article proposed the Wavelet Transform (WT) based General Regression Neural Network (GRNN) with statistical
time series input selection technique with an objective to improve the estimation accuracy of wind power. Authors have compared
the results of the proposed model with four different (Naive, Feed Forward Neural Networks, Recurrent Neural Networks
& GRNN) benchmark models on MEAN Absolute Error (MAE) and Mean Absolute Percentage Error (MAPE) accuracy scale.
The last article presented a concept of a PV system integrated with pumped storage for electrification/ implementation in rural
areas. The proposed system operates at Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) without de-rating the PV capacity or any need for ESD. The control philosophy is simple, robust and ensures two modes of operation for pumped storage depending upon
the PV power being generated, load demand and available water level in the lower and upper reservoir. Further, authors
have concluded that to operate the PV system at night with heavy loads, additional ESD may require for better response and

with a comprehensive overview of the most recent developments in the area of engineering.

awareness has been widely concerned. In ‘Research on basketball tactical consciousness aided training
system based on Multimedia Technology’, Based on the analysis of the current development trend of
basketball, we can conclude that basketball tactical awareness training is more and more important.
However, the multimedia technology is still insufficient to the basketball tactical consciousness training.
Aiming at the deficiency, this paper designs a multimedia aided training system of basketball tactical
consciousness based on the professional theory and technology. The system test method can objectively
reflect students' basketball tactics consciousness level, using training methods can improve the students on
field situation observation, analysis and decision making ability, and promote the formation of students'
consciousness of basketball tactics in this system. Finally, by using the method of fuzzy comprehensive
evaluation on the system after the training of students A score test is carried out to verify the effectiveness
of the system.
Harris corner detection based on the characteristic value of the second order matrix to extract corner
features is regarded as one of the most successful algorithms in corner detection. In ‘Harris Corner
Detection Algorithm Optimization.
Based on OTSU’, OTSU algorithm shorted for the maximum variance between clusters can calculates
the maximum variance between the background area and the target area based on the image gray
histograms, and then obtain the adaptive threshold. Because Harris needs to artificially select threshold
and threshold estimation is very difficult, to solve these problems, the OHO algorithm is proposed in this
paper,which aims to optimize the Harris algorithm based on OTSU. The OHO algorithm combines the
characteristics of the high accuracy of Harris algorithm and the adaptive threshold selection of OTSU.
Experiments show that the OHO algorithm can detect more small and authentic corners than traditional
Harris, and it has better adaptability and robustness.
The switched reluctance motor has strong nonlinear feature due to its structure and operation mode, and
the performances and control methods of this new kind of motors are significantly different from those
traditional ones. As a result, the accurate modeling and high performance control of the switched
reluctance motor proves to be very important and has gained widely research. In ‘Switched Reluctance
Motor Control based on Improved Neural network’, a kind of switched reluctance motor based on PID
neural network control method is proposed, which combines artificial fish swarm and particle swarm
optimization to optimize weights and thresholds of BP neural network. Speed response of the improved
BP algorithm has no overshoot, has a smooth transition to the steady state and eliminates the oscillation
phenomena that exists in the PID control. Besides, it reduces the time of transient process to improve the
response speed. Anti-interference ability and robustness is obviously superior to the PID control.
