    Traditional machine learning algorithms for small data were not applicable for mining of big data. An optimization algorithm for machine learning and big data mining was proposed. The iterative computation of machine learning algorithms was divided into two phases according to the change of model vector. According to the observation that most samples contributed little to the model update during the iteration, the computation load of machine learning algorithms could be reduced by reusing the iterative computing results of this kind of samples. The experimental results showed that the proposed method could reduce the computation load by 35%, with little effect on prediction accuracy of the training model.

    There were two key problems in tracking 3D facial expression using a monocular RGB camera. One was how to reconstruct 3D facial model from a single image, and the other was how to establish the dense correspondences between the different 3D models. To solve the above problems, an effective 3D facial expression tracking algorithm was proposed. The feature points were automatically detected on each input facial image frame, and the 3D models of different expressions were reconstructed by Multilinear Model according to 2D feature points. By re-projecting the 3D models into the image space, the Optic Flow and Sift Flow correspondences between images were calculated. According to the correspondences of the images, the 3D models were rectified by Laplacian mesh deformation, and the dense 3D correspondences between different expressions were established. The experimental results showed that the proposed method could create more realistic 3D expression models, and could accurately track the continuous change of the 3D expression sequence.

    In order to overcome the low operating efficiency and poor reconstruction quality in the total variation blind image restoration model of the regularization theory, an iterative algorithm of blind restoration based on alternating direction method of multipliers algorithm was proposed. The restored image and the point spread function were estimated alternatively by alternating iteration to improve the running speed and reconstruction quality through a way without updating the penalty term. The normalization and threshold constraint condition of the point spread function, and the positive definite condition of the image were added while calculating. In the numerical experimentation, the blind restoration of the images with different fuzzy types were carried out, and it was compared with other existing blind image restoration methods. The proposed algorithm could improve the quality and the resolution ratio of the image. Through objective comparison, the peak signal to noise ratio of the proposed algorithm could be increased by 1.2 dB at most,the average structural similarity was increased maximumly by 1% and the computation time was saved maximumly by about half.

    Most existing view-based 3D model retrieval methods used features of 2D projection views to represent a 3D model directly, ignored their contributions to a 3D model. Therefore, a new 3D model retrieval method based on manifold ranking was proposed, which focused on the contributions of 2D projected views features. 2D projected views from 34 different viewpoints obtained through rotation, word frequency vector featuresextracted by bag-of-feature based on scaleinvariant feature transform(SIFT)features, then aggregated 34 word frequency vector features of a 3D model into a 3D model feature. The experimental results showed that our method improved the retrieval accuracy well.

    To solve over current problem of the isolated DC/DC converter that commonly applied in DC distribution systems, a novel simple soft starting method was proposed. During the starting time, the dutycycle of the input side square wave voltage gradually changed from 0 to 0.5, while the DC voltage ramped from 0 to the final set value at the same time by phase shift control. By applying these two methods, current overshooting and capacitor voltage oscillation could be effectively suppressed. The system had a strong anti-disturbance capacity and do not require complex mode switching procedure as conventional soft starting method. Simulation results were provided to validate the effectiveness of the proposed soft starting method.

    The synchronization problem of complex dynamical networks with time delay and discontinuous coupling was investigated based on Lyapunov stability theory. The sufficient conditions for the networks synchronization was established and the upper bound estimation of the time delay was obtained. The acquired analytical results showed that network with discontinuous coupling could achieve synchronization if time delay met some conditions. The upper bound of the delay for synchronization depended on the coupling strength, the algebraic connectivity of network and on-off rate. The application of numerical simulation results proved that evolution trajectory of network synchronization error and different conditions, in which Ikeda system was used as node dynamics and error function as the network synchronization index. Furthermore, the effect of control parameters on the synchronization speed was analyzed. Numerical examples were provided to verify the effectiveness of the theoretical results.

    In order to quantify the difference in safety performance of the substation grounding network under different soil structures as much as possible, based on the measured soil resistivity data, the substation ground network safety indicators, such as step voltage and touch voltage of the mountains, coastal and hilly areas under the vertical layered soil structure and the level layered soil structure were analysed, and the differences between regions in percentage were evaluated. The results showed that the soil vertical layered structure and horizontal layered structure could be accurately calculated by using current distribution, electromagnetic field and soil analysis(CDEGS)software,the necessity of considering vertical layered soil was explained by the contrast of step voltage and touch voltage under two kinds of soil structure in different regions,deviation percentage of touch voltage and step voltage near the soil interface part under vertical stratification structure were higher at the same area, and the calculation results of maximum deviation percentage showed that the difference caused by different soil layers structure was more obvious in the bigger resistivity region

    In order to cope with the long-distance submarine cable effects on low voltage ride through(LVRT)remote testing for offshore wind turbines(WTs), the LVRT testing model was built and the method for remote testing on LVRT of offshore WTs was proposed according to the existing LVRT testing technique and standards based on the outlet of WTs. The difference between near and remote testing in both steady and transient situations was analyzed according to the existing devices and method, which concluded that the mutual influence of current limiting reactance and cable heightened the voltage of the outlet, prolonged the transient process and increased harmonic component. The circuit breaker of original device was replaced with electronic switches in order to control the operation of reactance accurately. The operation sequence of the reactance was improved to make the action intervals of time between the current-limiting reactance and short-circuit reactance trended to 0. By doing this, the mutual influence of current-limiting reactance and cable could be avoided. A simulation was put forth to verify the effectiveness of the improved process and to provide supports for development of remote LVRT testing equipment at the same time.

    A novel dispersive solid-phase extraction(DSPE)analysis method was established by combining Fe3O4magnetic nanoparticles modified graphene as absorption material for determination of organochlorine pesticides(OCPs)in water. Magnetic nanoparticles modified graphene(MNG)was prepared by graphene oxide and Fe2+ through redox reaction in one step. Cationic surfactant CTAB was added as micelle forming agent, in which MNG was carrier of mixed micelles extraction system. Mixed micelle modified MNG had higher loading capacity than pure Fe3O4magnetic graphene. This method was applied to detect 29 kinds of OCPs in water. The detection limit was in the range of 1.5~5.0 ng/L. The recovery was ranged from 75.22% to 97.15%. The relative standard deviation(RSD)of repeatability was lower than 9.995%. As compared with ordinary solid-phase extraction, the sensitivity of new method increased 50~113 times. The method was suitable for simultneous determination of OCPs pesticide residues in water with high accuracy, sensitivity and less pre-treatment time, which was suitable for batch analysis of samples.
