© 2019 IEEE.This paper proposes a method to ensure that S-Parameters generated using neural network (NN) models are physically consistent and can be safely used in subsequent time-domain simulations. This is achieved by introducing causality and passivity enforcement layers as the last two layers of the NN, while minimizing their computational overhead to the training and inference of the NN model. Proposed technique is demonstrated on learning the mapping from 13 dimensional geometrical parameters of a differential plated through hole (PTH) in package core to its corresponding broadband S-Parameters up to 100 GHz.


End-to-end learned image compression with conditional latent space modeling for entropy coding
Yesilyurt, Aziz Berkay; Kamışlı, Fatih (2021-01-24)
The use of neural networks in image compression enables transforms and probability models for entropy coding which can process images based on much more complex models than the simple Gauss-Markov models in traditional compression methods. All at the expense of higher computational complexity. In the neural-network based image compression literature, various methods to model the dependencies in the transform domain/latent space are proposed. This work uses an alternative method to exploit the dependencies o...
Representing temporal knowledge in connectionist expert systems
Alpaslan, Ferda Nur (1996-09-27)
This paper introduces a new temporal neural networks model which can be used in connectionist expert systems. Also, a Variation of backpropagation algorithm, called the temporal feedforward backpropagation algorithm is introduced as a method for training the neural network. The algorithm was tested using training examples extracted from a medical expert system. A series of experiments were carried out using the temporal model and the temporal backpropagation algorithm. The experiments indicated that the alg...
Investigation of effect of design and operating parameters on acoustophoretic particle separation via 3D device-level simulations
Sahin, Mehmet Akif; ÇETİN, BARBAROS; Özer, Mehmet Bülent (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-12-16)
In the present study, a 3D device-level numerical model is implemented via finite element method to assess the effects of design and operating parameters on the separation performance of a microscale acoustofluidic device. Elastodynamic equations together with electromechanical coupling at the piezoelectric actuators for the stress field within the solid parts, Helmholtz equation for the acoustic field within fluid, and Navier-Stokes equations for the fluid flow are coupled for the simulations. Once the zer...
Optimization of well placement in complex carbonate reservoirs using artifical intelligence
Uraz, İrtek; Akın, Serhat; Department of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering (2004)
This thesis proposes a framework for determining the optimum location of an injection well by using an inference method, Artificial Neural Networks and a search algorithm to create a search space and locate the global maxima. Theoretical foundation of the proposed framework is followed by description of the field for case study. A complex carbonate reservoir, having a recorded geothermal production history is used to evaluate the proposed framework ( Kizildere Geothermal field, Turkey). In the proposed fram...
Optimization of physical parameters of an underactuated quadrupedal robot
Karagoz, Osman Kaan; Ankaralı, Mustafa Mert (2018-01-01)
In this paper, we present the comparison of different optimization algorithms that are used to optimize the parameters of a simulated legged robotic platform. We compare the results obtained by applying different algorithms on the same model and show the relative advantages and disadvantages of these algorithms. The tested algorithms are Particle Swarm Optimization, Binary Coded Genetic Algorithm, Broyden-Fletcher-Goldfrab-Shannon Algorithm and Method of Zoutendijk. We showed that the globally optimal param...
