    Abstract: This paper presents a voiced/unvoiced classification algorithm of the noisy speech signal by analyzing two acoustic features of the speech signal. Short-time energy and short-time zero- crossing rates are one of the most distinguishable time domain features of a speech signal to classify its voiced activity into voiced/unvoiced segment. A new idea ... Show More

    Abstract: Electricity demand (kilowatt hour: kWh) and peak power load (kilowatt: kW) forecasting is very important for not only expansion planning purposes (long term), but also for dispatching purposes (short term). Hence, from the long term forecasting perspective to the very short term forecasting perspective, the nature of electricity demand and the peak... Show More
