Self-Organizing Map Improved for Classification of Partial Discharge using Desirability Function
Keywords:Self-Organzing Maps, Partial Discharge
This paper presents an analysis for Self Organizing Map (SOM) using Response Surface Methodology (RSM) and Desirability Function to find the optimal parameters to improve performance. This comparative explores the relationship between explanatory variables (numerical and categorical) such a competitive algorithm and learning rate and response variables as training time and quality metrics for SOM. Response surface plots were used to determine the interaction effects of main factors and optimum conditions to the performance in classification of partial discharge (PD).
