A family of Lyapunov-based control schemes for maximum power point tracking in buck converters

Jorge Álvarez, Jorge Ruiz, Miguel Bernal (2023)


This paper presents a novel family of Lyapunov-based controllers for the maximum power point tracking problem in the buck converter case. The solar power generation system here considered is composed by a stand-alone photovoltaic panel connected to a DC/DC buck converter. Lyapunov function candidates depending on the output are considered to develop conditions which, in some cases, can be expressed as linear matrix inequalities; these conditions guarantee that the output goes asymptotically to zero,...

A fast numerical test of multivariate polynomial positiveness with applications

Petr Augusta, Petra Augustová (2018)


The paper presents a simple method to check a positiveness of symmetric multivariate polynomials on the unit multi-circle. The method is based on the sampling polynomials using the fast Fourier transform. The algorithm is described and its possible applications are proposed. One of the aims of the paper is to show that presented algorithm is significantly faster than commonly used method based on the semi-definite programming expression.

Consistent models for electrical networks with distributed parameters

Corneliu A. Marinov, Gheorghe Moroşanu (1992)

Mathematica Bohemica

A system of one-dimensional linear parabolic equations coupled by boundary conditions which include additional state variables, is considered. This system describes an electric circuit with distributed parameter lines and lumped capacitors all connected through a resistive multiport. By using the monotony in a space of the form L 2 ( 0 , T ; H 1 ) , one proves the existence and uniqueness of a variational solution, if reasonable engineering hypotheses are fulfilled.

Continuous extension of order-preserving homogeneous maps

Andrew D. Burbanks, Colin T. Sparrow, Roger D. Nussbaum (2003)


Maps f defined on the interior of the standard non-negative cone K in N which are both homogeneous of degree 1 and order-preserving arise naturally in the study of certain classes of Discrete Event Systems. Such maps are non-expanding in Thompson’s part metric and continuous on the interior of the cone. It follows from more general results presented here that all such maps have a homogeneous order-preserving continuous extension to the whole cone. It follows that the extension must have at least...

Integral control of infinite-dimensional systems in the presence of hysteresis: an input-output approach

Hartmut Logemann, Eugene P. Ryan, Ilya Shvartsman (2007)

ESAIM: Control, Optimisation and Calculus of Variations

This paper is concerned with integral control of systems with hysteresis. Using an input-output approach, it is shown that application of integral control to the series interconnection of either (a) a hysteretic input nonlinearity, an L2-stable, time-invariant linear system and a non-decreasing globally Lipschitz static output nonlinearity, or (b) an L2-stable, time-invariant linear system and a hysteretic output nonlinearity, guarantees, under certain assumptions, tracking of constant reference...

Signals generated in memristive circuits

Artur Sowa (2012)

Nanoscale Systems: Mathematical Modeling, Theory and Applications

Signals generated in circuits that include nano-structured elements typically have strongly distinct characteristics, particularly the hysteretic distortion. This is due to memristance, which is one of the key electronic properties of nanostructured materials. In this article, we consider signals generated from a memrsitive circuit model. We demonstrate numerically that such signals can be efficiently represented in certain custom-designed nonorthogonal bases. The proposed method ensures that the...

The algebraic structure of delay-differential systems: a behavioral perspective

Heide Glüsing-Lüerssen, Paolo Vettori, Sandro Zampieri (2001)


This paper presents a survey on the recent contributions to linear time- invariant delay-differential systems in the behavioral approach. In this survey both systems with commensurate and with noncommensurate delays will be considered. The emphasis lies on the investigation of the relationship between various systems descriptions. While this can be understood in a completely algebraic setting for systems with commensurate delays, this is not the case for systems with noncommensurate delays. In the...
