: The design of control engineering applications usually requires a model that accurately represents the dynamics of the real system. In addition to classical physical modeling, powerful data-driven approaches are increasingly used. However, the resulting models are not necessarily in a form that is advantageous for controller design. In the control engineering domain, it is highly beneficial if the system dynamics is given in PCHD form (Port-Controlled Hamiltonian Systems with Dissipation…

Passivity, feedback equivalence, and the global stabilization of minimum phase nonlinear systems
Conditions under which a nonlinear system can be rendered passive via smooth state feedback are derived. It is shown that, as in the case of linear systems, this is possible if and only if the system
A Data–Driven Approximation of the Koopman Operator: Extending Dynamic Mode Decomposition
This approach is an extension of dynamic mode decomposition (DMD), which has been used to approximate the Koopman eigenvalues and modes, and if the data provided to the method are generated by a Markov process instead of a deterministic dynamical system, the algorithm approximates the eigenfunctions of the Kolmogorov backward equation.
Nonlinear Control
Learning Data-Driven Stable Koopman Operators
A formula for the global error of general Koopman representations is derived and imposing stability constraints on the data-driven model is motivated to improve the approximation of nonlinear systems over a longer horizon.
A simplified viewpoint of hyperstability
The definition of a hyperstable system according to Popov is given a network theoretic interpretation, and proofs are presented outlining the connection between passive and hyperstable systems.
Approximating the nearest stable discrete-time system
Parametrization of IDA-PBC by assignment of local linear dynamics
A systematic reduction of the set of constant design parameters in terms of solvability of the matching PDEs and closed loop stability is proposed and a constant parametrization of IDA-PBC is proposed that ensures stability of the controlled system with a nonlinear Lyapunov function, while desired local dynamic behavior is realized.
