Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is an effective therapy to treat movement disorders including essential tremor, dystonia, and Parkinson's disease. Despite over a decade of clinical experience the mechanisms of DBS are still unclear, and this lack of understanding makes the selection of stimulation parameters quite challenging. The objective of this work was to(More)
This paper proposes a novel piecewise linear feedback control strategy for the automotive dry clutch engagement process. Based on a dynamic model of the powertrain system, the controller is designed by minimizing a quadratic performance index subject to constraints on the inputs and on the states. The resulting model predictive controller is shown to(More)
—Microgrids are subsystems of the distribution grid which comprises small generation capacities, storage devices and controllable loads, which can operate either connected or isolated from the utility grid. This paper studies the microgrid economic scheduling, i.e. the problem of optimize microgrid operations to fulfil a time-varying energy demand and(More)
