The prediction of moisture content for two wood chips species using the wood dielectric property is studied.
Nonlinear models are built to predict the reflection coefficient values from frequencies.
Those reflection coefficients are used as input variables of a moisture content predictive model designed using Least Squares Support Vector Machines (LS-SVM) technique and feature selection methods.
Numerical experiments using real world data show the effectiveness of the proposed methodology that requires a limited computational power.
Wood is a renewable, abundant bio-energy and environment friendly resource. Woody biomass Moisture Content () is a key parameter for controlling the biofuel product qualities and properties. In this paper, we are interested in predictingfrom data. The input impedance of half-wave dipole antenna when buried in the wood pile varies according to the permittivity of wood. Hence, the measurement of reflection coefficient, that gives information about the input impedance, depends directly on theof wood. The relationship between the reflection coefficient measurements and theis studied. Based upon this relationship,predictive models that use machine learning techniques and feature selection methods are proposed. Numerical experiments using real world data show the relevance of the proposed approach that requires a limited computational power. Therefore, a real-time implementation for industrial processes is feasible.

Note to users:Corrected proofs are Articles in Press that contain the authors' corrections. Final citation details, e.g., volume/issue number, publication year and page numbers, still need to be added and the text might change before final publication.
Although corrected proofs do not have all bibliographic details available yet, they can already be cited using the year of online publication and the DOI , as follows: author(s), article title, journal (year), DOI. Please consult the journal's reference style for the exact appearance of these elements, abbreviation of journal names and use of punctuation.
When the final article is assigned to an issue of the journal, the Article in Press version will be removed and the final version will appear in the associated published issue of the journal. The date the article was first made available online will be carried over.
