This paper highlights the interest of step-by-step higher order sliding mode observers for MIMO nonlinear systems with unknown inputs. A structural matching condition, stating on the possibility to design such observers and to reconstruct the unknown inputs, is derived. A finite time sliding mode observer, based on the hierarchical use of the super twisting(More)
Research is ongoing on eighteen cases of Legionellosis, including four deaths, identified among tourists and employees in a hotel in Calp, Spain. Cases occurred during a period of two months, indicating the possibility of a point-source transmission at the hotel. An environmental investigation identified several positive samples in the hotel, which as a(More)
A frequency domain analysis of the second order sliding mode algorithms, particularly of the twisting algorithm is carried out with the use of the describing function and the locus of a perturbed relay system approach. It is shown that in the presence of an actuator, the transient process converges to a periodic motion. Parameters of this periodic motion(More)
Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) is a clinicoradiological syndrome in which patients present with an acute or subacute clinical presentation of seizures, visual disturbances, headache, and altered mental status. The pathophysiology of PRES may be explained by endothelial dysfunction that leads to transudation of fluids and protein,(More)
