The Application of Self-Organizing Map (SOM) to Assess Power Communication Network Reliability
A novel method was proposed to evaluate the reliability of power communication network based on self-organizing map via analyzing the problems of current power communication network reliability evaluation. This proposed method overcomes not only the influence of subjective factors on the evaluation, but also the problem of weight. Excellent results were obtained by applying the new model to evaluating the ten communication networks. Therefore, it is proven to be objective, reasonable and effective in practice.
