Modeling and control of co-generation power plants: a hybrid system approach
TLDR
In this paper, the short-term scheduling optimization of a combined cycle power plant is accomplished by exploiting hybrid systems, i.e., systems evolving according to continuous dynamics, discrete dynamics, and logic rules. Expand

Spectral value sets of closed linear operators
We study how the spectrum of a closed linear operator on a complex Banach space changes under affine perturbations of the form A ↝ AΔ = A + DΔE. Here A, D and E are given linear operators, whereas ΔExpand

Thermoacoustic instabilities: modeling and control
The goal of this study was twofold. First, modeling strategies were proposed to characterize the dynamics driving the thermoacoustic instabilities in a swirl-stabilized premixed burner. Second, thisExpand

Computing spectral value sets using the subharmonicity of the norm of rational matrices
Spectral value sets (SVS) are structured versions of pseudospectra, a tool of matrix analysis that has been popularized by Trefethen and Godunov in recent years. The main result contained in thisExpand
