Welcome to Edinburgh Napier Research Repository

The ‘Research Repository’ is the open access institutional repository of Edinburgh Napier University. It contains examples of research outputs produced by staff and research students, as well as related information about the university's funded projects and staff research interests.

Whenever possible, refereed documents accepted for publication, or finished artistic compositions presented in public, will be made available here in full digital format, and hyperlinks to standard published versions will be provided. Any questions about submissions to the repository or problems with access to any of its content should be sent to the Repository Team at repository@napier.ac.uk

For the last few years, Android is known to be the most widely used operating system and this rapidly increasing popularity has attracted the malware developer's attention. Android allows downloading and installation of apps from other unofficial mar... Read More about SAMADroid: A Novel 3-Level Hybrid Malware Detection Model for Android Operating System.

Development of Optimized Smart Indoor Control for Renewable Air-Conditioning (2020)
Conference Proceeding
Oye, T. T., Gupta, N., Goh, K., & Oye, T. K. (2020). Development of Optimized Smart Indoor Control for Renewable Air-Conditioning. In 2020 9th International Conference on Renewable Energy Research and Application (ICRERA). https://doi.org/10.1109/icrera49962.2020.9242846

This paper presents the modelling of smart indoor control for renewable air-conditioning using fuzzy logic control and proportional-integral-derivatives for improved thermal comfort. The proposed control techniques are systematically designed and tun... Read More about Development of Optimized Smart Indoor Control for Renewable Air-Conditioning.

A Feasibility Study for the Optimized Development of Renewable Air-Conditioning for Different Climatic Conditions (2020)
Journal Article
Oye, T. T., Gupta, N., Goh, K., & Oye, T. K. (2020). A Feasibility Study for the Optimized Development of Renewable Air-Conditioning for Different Climatic Conditions. Environmental management and sustainable development, 9(3), 87-109. https://doi.org/10.5296/emsd.v9i3.17459

This paper aims to present renewable air-conditioning as a sustainable system for varied climatic conditions with the feasibility of optimization to reduce the level of energy consumption and the rate of carbon emissions. Extreme use of air-condition... Read More about A Feasibility Study for the Optimized Development of Renewable Air-Conditioning for Different Climatic Conditions.

Distributed Event-triggered Bipartite Consensus for Multi-agent Systems Against Injection Attacks (2022)
Journal Article
Zhao, H., Shan, J., Peng, L., & Yu, H. (in press). Distributed Event-triggered Bipartite Consensus for Multi-agent Systems Against Injection Attacks. IEEE Transactions on Industrial Informatics, https://doi.org/10.1109/tii.2022.3157595

This paper studies fully distributed data-driven problems for nonlinear discrete-time multi-agent systems (MASs) with fixed and switching topologies preventing injection attacks. We first develop an enhanced compact form dynamic linearization model b... Read More about Distributed Event-triggered Bipartite Consensus for Multi-agent Systems Against Injection Attacks.
