This paper addresses the problem of controlling a certain class of continuous-time nonlinear systems subject to actuator saturations. The design of state feedback gains is done by considering a modelling of the nonlinear saturated system through deadzone nonlinearities satisfying a modified sector condition, which encompasses the classical(More)
This paper addresses the control design problem for a certain class of continuous-time nonlinear systems subject to actuator saturations. The system under consideration consists of a system with two nested nonlinearities of different type: saturation nonlinearity and cone-bounded nonlinearity. The control law investigated for stabilization purposes depends(More)
—A consistent framework for robust linear quadratic regulators (LQRs) control of power converters is presented. Systems with conventional LQR controllers present good stability properties and are optimal with respect to a certain performance index. However, LQR control does not assure robust stability when the system is highly uncertain. In this paper, a(More)
Keywords: Stability analysis Backlash Generalized sector conditions Equilibrium points LMI a b s t r a c t This paper addresses the problem of stability analysis for a given class of nonlinear systems resulting from the connection of a linear system with an isolated backlash operator. Constructive conditions based on LMIs to ensure closed-loop stability are(More)
This genome-scale study analysed the various parameters influencing protein levels in cells. To achieve this goal, the model bacterium Lactococcus lactis was grown at steady state in continuous cultures at different growth rates, and proteomic and transcriptomic data were thoroughly compared. Ratios of mRNA to protein were highly variable among proteins but(More)
Bacterial adaptation involves extensive cellular reorganization. In particular, growth rate adjustments are associated with substantial modifications of gene expression and mRNA abundance. In this work we aimed to assess the role of mRNA degradation during such variations. A genome-wide transcriptomic-based method was used to determine mRNA half-lives. The(More)
