Balancing for nonlinear systems

- J. Scherpen
- Mathematics, Computer Science
- 1 August 1993

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 local… Expand

Power shaping: a new paradigm for stabilization of nonlinear RLC circuits

- R. Ortega, D. Jeltsema, J. Scherpen
- Mathematics, Computer Science
- IEEE Trans. Autom. Control.
- 7 October 2003

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 and… Expand

Power-based control of physical systems

- E. García-Canseco, D. Jeltsema, R. Ortega, J. Scherpen
- Mathematics, Engineering
- Autom.
- 2010

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 was… Expand

A port-Hamiltonian approach to power network modeling and analysis

- Shaik Fiaz, Daniele Zonetti, R. Ortega, J. Scherpen, A. Schaft
- Mathematics, Computer Science
- Eur. J. Control
- 1 December 2013

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 to… Expand

Fully distributed robust synchronization of networked Lur'e systems with incremental nonlinearities

- F. Zhang, H. Trentelman, J. Scherpen
- Mathematics, Computer Science
- Autom.
- 1 October 2014

This paper deals with robust synchronization problems for uncertain dynamical networks of diffusively interconnected identical Lur'e systems subject to incrementally passive nonlinearities and… Expand

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

- D. Jeltsema, J. Scherpen
- Computer Science, Mathematics
- IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control
- 16 August 2004

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 usually… Expand

A systematic and numerically efficient procedure for stable dynamic model inversion of LTI systems

- K. George, M. Verhaegen, J. Scherpen
- Computer Science
- Proceedings of the 38th IEEE Conference on…
- 10 December 1999

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

- D. Jeltsema, R. Ortega, J. Scherpen
- Mathematics
- 8 September 2003

Arbitrary interconnections of passive (possibly nonlinear) resistors, inductors, and capacitors define passive systems, with power port variables the external source voltages and currents, and… Expand

An energy-balancing perspective of interconnection and damping assignment control of nonlinear systems

- D. Jeltsema, R. Ortega, J. Scherpen
- Computer Science, Mathematics
- Autom.
- 1 September 2004

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 is… Expand

Distributed Control of the Power Supply-Demand Balance

- Gunn K. H. Larsen, N. V. Foreest, J. Scherpen
- Computer Science, Economics
- IEEE Transactions on Smart Grid
- 21 March 2013

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. We… Expand
