Real-time approximators for continuous-time dynamical systems with many inputs are presented. These approximators employ a novel self-organizing radial basis function (RBF) network, which varies its structure dynamically to keep the prescribed approximation accuracy. The RBFs can be added or removed online in order to achieve the appropriate network(More)
Power electronics based power distribution systems (PEDSs) are becoming increasingly common, particularly in marine and aerospace applications. Stability analysis of this class of systems is crucial due to the potential for negative impedance instability. Existing techniques of stability analysis introduce artificial conservativeness, are sensitive to(More)
Direct adaptive robust state feedback and output feedback controllers are proposed for the output tracking control of a class of uncertain systems with disturbance. The proposed controllers employ self-organizing raised-cosine radial basis function networks, which are capable of determining their structures dynamically, to approximate unknown system(More)
—Microgrid power systems are becoming increasingly common in a host of applications. In this work, the mitigation of the adverse affects of pulsed-power loads on these systems is considered. In microgrid power systems, pulsed loads are particularly problematic since the total system inertia is finite. Examples include ships and aircraft with high-power(More)
High performance high bandwidth control of power electronic converters, inverters, and motor drives has become feasible over the past decade. These devices behave as constant power loads over large bandwidths when they are tightly regulated. However, constant power loads have a severe side affect known as negative impedance instability. In order to mitigate(More)
—Permanent magnet and wound rotor synchronous machines (PMSMs and WRSMs) are often used in diesel engine-based portable power generation systems. In these applications, there is a growing desire to improve machine efficiency in order to reduce fossil fuel requirements. In addition, there is a desire to reduce mass to improve mobility. To attempt to address(More)
A field-extrema hysteresis loss model for high-frequency ferrimagnetic materials" (2008). We present a new field-extrema hysteresis loss model (FHM) for high-frequency ferrimagnetic materials, along with a parameter identification procedure. The model does not involve solving an ordinary differential equation (ODE) and is asymmetric in that it works well(More)
