In the last decades, several researchers have concentrated on the dynamic modeling of nonlinear electrical circuits from an energy-based perspective. A recent perspective is based on the concept of port-Hamiltonian (PH) systems. In this paper, we discuss the relations between the classical Brayton–Moser (BM) equations—stemming from the early sixties—and PH(More)
It is well known that energy–balancing control is stymied by the presence of pervasive dissipation. To overcome this problem in electrical circuits, the alternative paradigm of power– shaping control was introduced in (Ortega et al., 2003)—where, as suggested by its name, stabilization is achieved shaping a function akin to power instead of the energy(More)
Nonlinear passivity-based control (PBC) algorithms for power converters have proved to be an interesting alternative to other, mostly linear, control techniques. The control objective is usually achieved through an energy reshaping process and by injecting damping to modify the dissipation structure of the system. However, a key question that arises during(More)
