— A system of two coupled Van der Pol equations is considered as a model for combustion instability. This system is analyzed using the Krylov-Bogoliubov method. The results of the analysis are compared with simulation results and with data obtained from a combustion system.
The paper proposes and analyzes two prototype structures of coupled generalized van der Pol equations able to describe self-excitation of simultaneous oscillations with distinct frequencies. These structures are relevant for describing oscillations phenomena which may be encountered on systems subject to control. These structures are analyzed using the… (More)
