  • We present a fault tolerant task pool execution environment that is capable of performing fine-grain selective restart using a lightweight, distributed task completion tracking mechanism. Compared with conventional checkpoint/restart techniques, this system offers a recovery penalty that is proportional to the degree of failure rather than the system size. We evaluate this system using the Self Consistent Field (SCF) kernel which forms an important component in ab initio methods for computational chemistry. Experimental results indicate that fault tolerant task pools are robust in the presence of an arbitrary number of failures and that they offer low overhead in the absencemore » of faults.« less
  • This paper proposes a new evolutionary programming (EP) approach to identify the autoregressive moving average with exogenous variable (ARMAX) model for one day to one week ahead of hourly load demand forecasts. Typically, the surface of forecasting error function possesses multiple local minimum points. Solutions of the traditional gradient search based identification technique therefore may stall at the local optimal points which lead to an inadequate model.By simulating natural evolutionary process, the EP algorithm offers the capability of converging towards the global extremum of a complex error surface. The developed EP based load forecasting algorithm is verified by using differentmore » types of data for practical Taiwan Power (Taipower) system and substation load as well as temperature values. Numerical results indicate the proposed EP approach provides a method to simultaneously estimate the appropriate order and parameter values of the ARMAX model for diverse types of load data. Comparisons of forecasting errors are made to the traditional identification techniques.« less
