This Quantitative trait locus (QTL) analysis is a widely used statistical approach for the<br />detection of important genes in the chromosomes. Maximum likelihood (ML) based<br />interval mapping (IM) is one of the most popular approaches for QTL analysis. However,<br />it is relatively complex and computationally slower than regression based IM. Haley-<br />Knott (HK) and extended Haley-Knott (eHK) regression based IM save computation time<br />and produce similar results as ML-IM. However,

In this research, we have developed a robust regression based IM<br />approach by maximizing beta-likelihood function for intercross (F2) population. The<br />proposed method reduces to the HK-IM method when beta → 0. The tuning parameter<br />beta controls the performance of the proposed method. The simulation results show that<br />the proposed method improves performance over the existing IM approaches in the case<br />of data contaminations; otherwise, it shows almost the same results as the classical IM<br />approaches.

The deep transfer techniques used in this experiment are VGG19, DenseNet121, InceptionV3, and Inception-ResNetV2. CNN is used to extract complex features from samples and classified them using RNN. The VGG19-RNN architecture achieved the best performance among all the networks in terms of accuracy and computational time in our experiments. Finally, Gradient-weighted Class Activation Mapping (Grad-CAM) was used to visualize class-specific regions of images that are responsible to make decision. The system achieved promising results compared to other existing systems and might be validated in the future when more samples would be available. The experiment demonstrated a good alternative method to diagnose COVID-19 for medical staff.

Sumaira Tasnim, Ashfaqur Rahman, Amanullah Maung Than Oo, Md. Enamul Haque
2017 Renewables: Wind, Water, and Solar  
Successful integration of renewable energy sources like wind power into smart grids largely depends on accurate prediction of power from these intermittent sources. Production of wind power cannot be controlled as the wind speed can vary based on weather conditions. Accurate prediction of wind power can assist smart grid that intelligently decides on the usage of alternative power sources based on demand forecast. Time series wind speed data are normally used for wind power prediction. In this

Deep learning is a special form on neural network that is capable of capturing the structural properties of time series data in terms of a set of numeric features. More precisely, we have designed a two-stage autoencoder (a particular type of deep learning) and incorporated the structural features into a prediction framework. Using the structural features, we have achieved as high as 12.63% better prediction accuracy than traditionally used statistical features. © The Author(s) 2017.

The Majallat al-Aḥkām al-'Adliyyah, known as the Mejelle, is the code of Islamic civil transactions which was prepared under the auspices of the Ottoman Caliphate. This code was established based on the Ḥanafī School of Islamic law. However, people, who follow other than the Ḥanafī School, are reluctant to rely on the Mejelle even though they are interested to know the stands of their respective School of Islamic law on the articles of the Mejelle. Thus, considering the importance and relevance

Salam is a sale contract in which the commodity's delivery is deferred until a defined period, while the buyer must settle the payment upon the contract's conclusion. Although the general principle says that sale of something which is not possessed and not present is not permissible, salam contract is made valid as an exception from this, considering the need of the people. The study follows a qualitative approach and uses the content analysis method to achieve the objectives. For data source and analysis, the study consults with related classical and contemporary literature. The study finds that in general, the articles of the Mejelle on salam contract conform to the prominent Schools of Islamic law. Among the notable contemporary applications of salam contract are salam financing, parallel salam, salam ṣukūk, salam in short selling, and so forth.

In the contemporary period, there is hardly any transaction that is detached from its respective terms and conditions. This study aims to explore and analyze the issue of sale subject to a condition from the viewpoints of various schools of Islamic law. This study was accomplished through the scrutiny of the related primary sources of these schools. The researchers have found that the judgment of a sale with conditions is subject to the status of the related condition itself. Any condition that

Similarly, the study posits that the ruling of the contemporary transaction with terms and conditions is subject to the status of relevant conditions. If the condition is consistent with the contract and Shariah, it is valid and effective. Any condition that contradicts the requisites of the contract and Shariah are invalid and accordingly invalidate the transaction as well.

A Hierarchical Transactive Energy Management System for Energy Sharing in Residential Microgrids

Most Akter, Md Mahmud, Amanullah Oo
2017 Energies  
This paper presents an analytical framework to develop a hierarchical energy management system (EMS) for energy sharing among neighbouring households in residential microgrids. The houses in residential microgrids are categorized into three different types, traditional, proactive and enthusiastic, based on the inclusion of solar photovoltaic (PV) systems and battery energy storage systems (BESSs). Each of these three houses has an individual EMS, which is defined as the primary EMS. Two other
more » ... Ss (secondary and tertiary) are also considered in the proposed hierarchical energy management framework for the purpose of effective energy sharing. The intelligences of each EMS are presented in this paper for the purpose of energy sharing in a residential microgrid along with the priorities. The effectiveness of the proposed hierarchical framework is evaluated on a residential microgrid in Australia. The analytical results clearly reflect that the proposed scheme effectively and efficiently shares the energy among neighbouring houses in a residential microgrid. procurement. An optimal control-based EMS is presented in [9] for automotive power systems with battery and supercapacitor storage devices to increase the overall operational efficiency. A cooperative home EMS for a house with the solar PV unit and BESS is proposed in [10] to make a balance between the generation and load while forecasting the solar irradiation. The EMSs as presented in [7] [8] [9] [10] are only used to manage energy either for a single house with renewable energy sources (RESs) with energy storage systems (ESSs) or for RESs with local loads and the main power grid. For this reason, the structures of these EMSs in [7-10] are quite simple. However, the EMS will be more complicated if several houses with different features are connected together in order to share energy among themselves. The energy management of microgrids is discussed in [11, 12] where RESs are considered as distributed energy resources. In [11, 12] , the main objective of the EMS is to reduce the energy consumption without any prediction of demand and generation. An EMS, considering load and generation prediction, is proposed in [13] with the aim of utilizing the BESS in an optimal way for better grid support. In [14, 15] , the EMS for the microgrid is designed to reduce the utilization cost of the BESSs under the uncertainties in RESs through optimal generation scheduling. A similar approach for the EMS is presented in [16] for the least expensive pricing options in the local energy market and maximization of the energy utilization from the RESs. The EMSs in [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] are useful for managing power under different operating scenarios of microgrids. However, the RESs in these microgrids are lumped at some specific points, which is not the case in residential microgrids, as each house comprises RESs (especially solar PV systems) and BESSs. Thus, the EMS need to be designed in a different way that carries information from each house. The multi-agent frameworks are useful for carrying information from different entities or subsystems within a system, as well as sharing information among these entities [17] [18] [19] . A decentralized multi-agent framework is proposed in [20] for the energy management and autonomous control of microgrids. Similar EMSs based on multi-agent frameworks are proposed in [21] . A cognitive decision agent architecture is used in [22] to effectively manage the energy in microgrids. In [22] , the neighbourhood energy sharing is considered without considering any strategy for prioritizing the houses, charging or discharging the BESSs, etc. However, the effective energy management capability of an EMS depends on the intelligence of the agents. The multi-agent frameworks as discussed in [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] did not consider the detailed power generation and consumption features of different entities in a microgrid, and some of these approaches have also neglected the battery charging or discharging features. The hierarchical approaches are useful for sharing energy information among different entities in a microgrid. A hierarchical EMS is proposed in [23] where two layers are considered for static and dynamic frequency. Another hierarchical approach is used in [24] where the upper level of the EMS is used to manage the microgrids along with associated components, and the lower level is used for the optimization of operational costs. A multi-level EMS for multi-source electric vehicles is proposed in [25] based on an integrated rule-based meta-heuristic approach. In [26] , a hierarchical framework is presented as a day-ahead scheduling and double-layer intra-hour (master-client) adjustment system where these two layers are used to optimize the operational costs and tie-line power smoothing. A multi-source multi-product microgrid with a hierarchical EMS is proposed in [27] where the hierarchical framework includes supervisory, optimization and execution control layers. A hierarchical EMS based on master and slave control strategies is presented in [28] to maintain the power balance within the microgrid while considering the state of charge (SOC) of the battery. All these hierarchical approaches are proposed in [23-28]; the energy management at the household level is not considered, but rather some overall specific activities. This paper aims to design a hierarchical EMS for residential microgrids where the houses are categorized into three different types based on the inclusion of solar PV units and BESSs. Energy sharing priorities are also defined in this paper by considering both grid-connected and islanded operation of microgrids. In the proposed hierarchical framework, the levels are considered to

There were nosignificant (p<0.05) differences in TVC values among the three packaging conditions during the storageperiod except on day 9 where significantly (p<0.05) lower TVC values were observed in the VP samplecompared to that of other samples. Based on the bacterial counts of 7 log CFU/g, which is considered as theupper acceptable limit for fresh and frozen fish, the shelf-life was determined as the excess of 6 days forcontrol pack and MAP samples, and excess of 9 days for VP sample. Therefore, VP is a good option toincrease the shelf-life of wet fish, which can be adopted by the superstores to display their products withextended shelf-life.
