  • Publication number: 20180357730
    Abstract: Electrical utilities offer incentives to customers to reduce consumption during periods of demand-supply mismatch. A building's participation in demand response (DR) depends both on its ability (due to building constraints), and its willingness (a function of incentive) to reduce electricity. Customers prefer a large incentive whereas a utility would want to minimize the revenue outflow to achieve a target reduction. Systems and methods of the present disclosure identify optimal incentive from the utility's perspective reflecting this trade-off. A model is built to estimate the demand response potential (DRP) of a building for a given incentive offered by the utility. The models for individual buildings are used to characterize the behavior of an ensemble of buildings. The utility may then decide optimum incentives that should be offered to achieve a target DR, using the associated DRP.

  • Patent number: 8457967
    Abstract: A procedure to automatically evaluate the spoken fluency of a speaker by prompting the speaker to talk on a given topic, recording the speaker's speech to get a recorded sample of speech, and then analyzing the patterns of disfluencies in the speech to compute a numerical score to quantify the spoken fluency skills of the speakers. The numerical fluency score accounts for various prosodic and lexical features, including formant-based filled-pause detection, closely-occurring exact and inexact repeat N-grams, normalized average distance between consecutive occurrences of N-grams. The lexical features and prosodic features are combined to classify the speaker with a C-class classification and develop a rating for the speaker.
