43 G ameBots [1] is a virtual reality platform that allows the creation and evaluation of intelligent agents that interact with a rich 3D continuous dynamic environment. As opposed to previous test beds that focus on a single task and environment (such as soccer simulation [4]), GameBots does not define a single benchmark task. Instead, the GameBots(More)
— A method based on differential geometric control theory is presented intended to provide insight into how the nodes of a power network can affect each other. In this preliminary report, we consider a simple model of a power system derived from singular perturbation of the power flow equations. It is shown that such a model is accessible, and that for(More)
—Planning and scheduling for space operations entails the development of applications that embed intimate domain knowledge of distinct areas of mission control, while allowing for significant collaboration among them. The separation is useful because of differences in the planning problem, solution methods, and frequencies of re-planning that arise in the(More)
A method based on differential geometric control theory is presented with the intention to provide insight into how the nodes of a power network can affect each other. We consider a simple model of a power system derived from singular perturbation of the power flow equations. The accessibility properties of the model are investigated, and it is shown that(More)
— This paper presents a versatile, Matlab-based simulation and analysis code for electric power systems. The code was created for basic research and designed from a control/dynamical systems perspective. Full advantage was taken of Matlab's inherent cell arrays, structures, vectorized-calculations, ODE solvers with event handling and complex arithmetic.(More)
In this paper, we address parameter estimation for hybrid dynamical systems with state-dependent events and time-delayed parametric switching. Parameter estimation of hybrid systems can aid in system identification, model refinement, and contingency and stability analysis in various fields, including chemical, electrical, and power systems engineering. We(More)
This paper presents a simplified generator model for use in dynamic studies of electric power systems. The proposed model captures important characteristics of generators that include voltage and frequency variation as well as excitation limits. The behavior of the model is compared to that of a well-accepted higher order model through application to an(More)
