    Abstract Recent advancements in natural language processing have given rise to numerous pre-training language models in question-answering systems. However, with the constant evolution of algorithms, data, and computing power, the increasing size and complexity of these models have led to increased training costs and reduced efficiency. This study aims to minimize the inference time of such models while maintaining computational performance. It also proposes a novel Distillation model for PAL-BERT (DPAL-BERT), specifically, employs knowledge distillation, using the PAL-BERT model as the teacher model to train two student models: DPAL-BERT-Bi and DPAL-BERT-C.

    Abstract This paper addresses the challenge of identifying abnormal states in Lithium-ion Battery (LiB) time series data. As the energy sector increasingly focuses on integrating distributed energy resources, Virtual Power Plants (VPP) have become a vital new framework for energy management. LiBs are key in this context, owing to their high-efficiency energy storage capabilities essential for VPP operations. However, LiBs are prone to various abnormal states like overcharging, over-discharging, and internal short circuits, which impede power transmission efficiency. Traditional methods for detecting such abnormalities in LiB are too broad and lack precision for the dynamic and… More >
