The buck converter has been known to exhibit chaotic behavior in a wide parameter range. In this paper, the resonant parametric perturbation method is applied to control chaos in a voltage-mode controlled buck converter. In particular, the effects of phase shift and frequency mismatch in the perturbing signal are studied. It is shown that the control power(More)
Stress acclimation is an effective mechanism that plants acquired for adaption to dynamic environment. Even though generally considered to be sensitive to low temperature, Cassava, a major tropical crop, can be tolerant to much lower temperature after chilling acclimation. Improvement to chilling resistance could be beneficial to breeding. However, the(More)
—The method of resonant parametric perturbation is a simple non-feedback chaos control method which is easy to implement in practice. In this paper, an optimal strategy is applied to stabilize an unstable orbit in a chaotically operating current-mode controlled buck-boost converter. Optimal values of initial phase angles are computed corresponding to(More)
The aim of this paper is to introduce and investigate a novel complex Lorenz system with a flux-controlled memristor, and to realize its synchronization. The system has an infinite number of stable and unstable equilibrium points, and can generate abundant dynamical behaviors with different parameters and initial conditions, such as limit cycle, torus,(More)
Small noncoding RNA (sncRNA), including microRNAs (miRNAs) and endogenous small-interfering RNAs (endo-siRNAs) are key gene regulators in eukaryotes, playing critical roles in plant development and stress tolerance. Trans-acting siRNAs (ta-siRNAs), which are secondary siRNAs triggered by miRNAs, and siRNAs from natural antisense transcripts (nat-siRNAs) are(More)
The present study focuses on characterization of two hemicellulases, RuXyn1 and RuXyn2, from rumen bacterial metagenome and their capabilities for degradation of xylans. Glycosyl hydrolase (GH) family 43 β-d-xylosidase/α-l-arabinofuranosidase RuXyn1 can hydrolyze p-nitrophenyl-β-d-xylopyranoside (pNPX), p-nitrophenyl-α-l-arabinofuranoside (pNPA), and(More)
This paper introduces a new memristor-based hyperchaotic complex Lü system (MHCLS) and investigates its adaptive complex generalized synchronization (ACGS). Firstly, the complex system is constructed based on a memristor-based hyperchaotic real Lü system, and its properties are analyzed theoretically. Secondly, its dynamical behaviors, including hyperchaos,(More)
Intermittent instability is commonly observed in switching power supplies during the design and development phase. It manifests as symmetrical period-doubling bifurcation in the time domain with long intermittent periods. Such intermittent operation is considered undesirable in practice and is usually avoided by appropriate adjustments of circuit(More)
