Balancing for nonlinear systems
We present a method of balancing for nonlinear systems which is an extension of balancing for linear systems in the sense that it is basd on the input and output energy of a system. It is a localExpand

Power shaping: a new paradigm for stabilization of nonlinear RLC circuits
It is well known that arbitrary interconnections of passive (possibly nonlinear) resistors, inductors, and capacitors define passive systems, with port variables the external source voltages andExpand

Power-based control of physical systems
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 wasExpand

A port-Hamiltonian approach to power network modeling and analysis
In this paper we present a systematic framework for modeling of power networks. The basic idea is to view the complete power network as a port-Hamiltonian system on a graph where edges correspond toExpand

Fully distributed robust synchronization of networked Lur'e systems with incremental nonlinearities
This paper deals with robust synchronization problems for uncertain dynamical networks of diffusively interconnected identical Lur'e systems subject to incrementally passive nonlinearities andExpand

Tuning of passivity-preserving controllers for switched-mode power converters
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 usuallyExpand

A systematic and numerically efficient procedure for stable dynamic model inversion of LTI systems
Output tracking via the stable dynamic model inversion (SDI) technique, applicable to non-minimum phase systems, and which naturally takes into account the presence of noise in target time histories,Expand

On passivity and power-balance inequalities of nonlinear RLC circuits
Arbitrary interconnections of passive (possibly nonlinear) resistors, inductors, and capacitors define passive systems, with power port variables the external source voltages and currents, andExpand

An energy-balancing perspective of interconnection and damping assignment control of nonlinear systems
Stabilization of nonlinear feedback passive systems is achieved assigning a storage function with a minimum at the desired equilibrium. For physical systems a natural candidate storage function isExpand

Distributed Control of the Power Supply-Demand Balance
This paper aims to achieve a balance of power in a group of prosumers, based on a price mechanism, i.e., to steer the difference between the total production and consumption of power to zero. WeExpand
