This paper addresses the problem of planning the usage of actuators optimally in an economic perspective. The objective is to maximize the profit of operating a given plant during 24 hours of operation. Models of two business objectives are formulated in terms of system states and the monetary value of these objectives is established. Based on these and the(More)
A moment-matching method for model reduction of linear switched systems (LSSs) is presented. The method can be seen as a non-trivial extension of the Krylov subspace methods for linear time-invariant (LTI) systems. The procedure is based on the so called “nice selections”, which represent a choice of basis in the reachability or observability space of the(More)
We present a procedure for reducing the number of continuous states of discrete-time linear switched systems, such that the reduced system has the same behavior as the original system for a subset of switching sequences. The proposed method is expected to be useful for abstraction based control synthesis methods for hybrid systems.
This paper deals with stability analysis of hybrid systems. Various stability concepts related to hybrid systems are introduced. The paper advocates a local analysis. It involves the equivalence relation generated by reset maps of a hybrid system. To establish a tangible method for stability analysis, we introduce the notion of a chart, which locally(More)
We present a novel algorithm for reducing the state dimension, i.e. order, of linear parameter varying (LPV) discrete-time state-space (SS) models with affine dependence on the scheduling variable. The input-output behavior of the reduced order model approximates that of the original model. In fact, for input and scheduling sequences of a certain length,(More)
This paper considers the problem of economical optimization of the power production in a power plant capable of utilizing three different fuel systems. The considered fuel systems are coal, gas, and oil; each has certain advantages and disadvantages e.g. gas is easier to control than coal but it is more expensive. A profit function is stated and an analysis(More)
