— The problem of estimating regions of asymptotic stability for nonlinear dynamic systems is considered as an optimization problem. Genetic algorithms are then proposed to solve the resulting optimization problems. Three test systems are used to evaluate the performance of the proposed genetic algorithms. The test systems are 6th, 8th, and 17th order(More)
A linear programming approach to shipboard electrical system modeling" (2009). Abstract— Operability and dependability metrics can be a valuable tool in early ship design by providing a quantitative analysis of the robustness of the ship's integrated engineering plant (IEP). However, the use of these metrics involves large numbers of time domain simulations(More)

The modeling, simulation and experimental validation of the primary bus components of a dc power system testbed are presented herein. This reduced scale and reduced complexity dc testbed is representative of medium voltage dc (MVDC) systems being considered for shipboard next generation integrated power systems (NGIPS). The primary system components include(More)
