Inclusion of higher-order terms in the border-collision normal form: persistence of chaos and applications to power converters

  title={Inclusion of higher-order terms in the border-collision normal form: persistence of chaos and applications to power converters},
  author={David J. W. Simpson and Paul Glendinning},
The dynamics near a border-collision bifurcation are approximated to leading order by a continuous, piecewise-linear map. The purpose of this paper is to consider the higher-order terms that are neglected when forming this approximation. For twodimensional maps we establish conditions under which a chaotic attractor created in a border-collision bifurcation persists for an open interval of parameters beyond the bifurcation. We apply the results to a prototypical power converter model to prove…

Border-Collision Bifurcations in ℝN
This article reviews border-collision bifurcations with a general emphasis on results that apply to maps of any number of dimensions.
Border collision bifurcations in two-dimensional piecewise smooth maps
Recent investigations on the bifurcations in switching circuits have shown that many atypical bifurcations can occur in piecewise smooth maps that cannot be classified among the generic cases like
Chaos in the border-collision normal form: A computer-assisted proof using induced maps and invariant expanding cones
In some maps the existence of an attractor with a positive Lyapunov exponent can be proved by constructing a trapping region in phase space and an invariant expanding cone in tangent space. If this

Robust chaos revisited
The theoretical conditions for the existence of robust chaos are verified numerically providing additional evidence for robust chaos in some examples, and a new genericity condition for the classic example is established.
Robust chaos and the continuity of attractors
As the parameters of a map are varied an attractor may vary continuously in the Hausdorff metric. The purpose of this paper is to explore the continuation of chaotic attractors. We argue that this
Sliding bifurcations: a Novel Mechanism for the Sudden Onset of Chaos in dry Friction oscillators
It is shown both numerically and analytically that a sliding bifurcation is an important mechanism causing the sudden jump to chaos previously unexplained in the literature on friction systems.
The structure of mode-locking regions of piecewise-linear continuous maps
The mode-locking regions of a dynamical system are the subsets of the parameter space of the system within which there exists an attracting periodic solution. For piecewise-linear continuous maps,
Multiple attractor bifurcations: A source of unpredictability in piecewise smooth systems
There exists a variety of physically interesting situations described by continuous maps that are nondifferentiable on some surface in phase space. Such systems exhibit novel types of bifurcations in
