The statistical method of finding the "best" mathematic model to describe one variable as a function of another.

regression analysis

(in statistics) a test in which the size of one variable (the dependent variable) is dependent on another (the independent variable). Often the relationship is a linear one, enabling a line of best fit to be drawn on a SCATTER DIAGRAM.

Overall, it can be stated, that the statistical regression of WF power prediction model evaluates wind speed and direction, atmosphere parameters, their prediction system errors, plant location within the farm, natural and artificial obstacles, ground roughness, permanent parameter variation and allows a more precise prediction of wind farm power.
The objective of this study is to analyze the feasibility of GA-BP in dam deformation, to explore the usefulness of proposed multiple population genetic algorithm backpropagation (hybrid MPGA-BP model), and to compare it with statistical regression model and conventional BP network model with the same parameter for dam deformation analysis.
