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)
—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)
A linear programming approach to shipboard electrical system modeling" (2009). Abstract— Operability and dependability metrics can be a valuable tool in early ship design by providing a quantitative analysis of the robustness of the ship's integrated engineering plant (IEP). However, the use of these metrics involves large numbers of time domain simulations(More)
— The objective of this paper is to investigate the use of observers in the sensorless control of induction motor drives. First, three recently proposed rotor flux and speed observers for induction motors are analyzed and compared using a unified notation. Unresolved issues for each method are noted. Then, an alternative rotor flux and speed observer(More)
