Additionally, we recall stability notions for differential equations and corresponding Lyapunovlike characterizations. Since in the context of differential inclusions smooth control Lyapunov functions are not sufficient to describe weak stability properties, we use nonsmooth control Lyapunov functions in the Dini sense. Nonsmooth control Lyapunov functions of this form were introduced by Sontag in [63]. The Dini derivative as an extension of the directional derivative is discussed in the last part of this chapter.

[more] In the preceding chapter we have discussed strong stability and strong instability results for differential inclusions where the term strong refers to all solutions of a differential inclusion. In this chapter we discuss weak stability and weak instability results, where properties need to be satisfied for at least one solution instead of for all solutions. While the results from the last chapter allowed us to draw conclusions in terms of robustness, the results in this chapter guarantee stabilizability or destabilizability of the origin. In particular, in the context of a control system (2.8 ), weak stability guarantees the existence of an input u(· ) such that the origin can be reached asymptotically and weak instability describes the fact that it is possible to steer away from the origin by an appropriate selection of u(· ). In contrast to the last chapter where it turned out that strong stability in forward time is equivalent to strong instability in backward time, the same equivalence is not true for weak stability/instability results.

If a control Lyapunov function is known, then asymptotic stabilizability of an equilibrium of the corresponding dynamical system can be concluded without the knowledge of an explicit solution of the dynamical system. Whereas necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of nonsmooth control Lyapunov functions are known by now, constructive methods to generate control Lyapunov functions for given dynamical systems are not known up to the same extent. In this paper we build on previous work to compute (control) Lyapunov functions based on linear programming and mixed integer linear programming. In particular, we propose a mixed integer linear program based on a discretization of the state space where a continuous piecewise affine control Lyapunov function can be recovered from the solution of the optimization problem. Different to previous work, we incorporate a semiconcavity condition into the formulation of the optimization problem. Results of the proposed scheme are illustrated on the example of Artstein¿s circles and on a twodimensional system with two inputs. The underlying optimization problems are solved in Gurobi (2016, http://www.gurobi.com).

[more] Starting from a symmetric statefeedback solution ensuring $\alpha $ exponential convergence in an ellipsoidal sublevel set, with asymmetric saturation and singleinput linear plants, we propose a novel asymmetric scheduled extension preserving the original symmetric solution in that sublevel set and extending the guaranteed stability region to the union of all possible contractive ellipsoids centered at a shifted equilibrium. Our design being based on the solution of a parametric optimization problem, we prove Lipschitz properties of the ensuing feedback law and we compute its explicit statefeedback expression.

[more] We propose a constructive design method for linear systems with a nontrivial drift term, guaranteeing robust global asymptotic stability of the origin of the closedloop system, as well as robust obstacle avoidance. To obtain discontinuous input actions, our controller is designed in the framework of hybrid systems. Using our proposed hybrid controller, we demonstrate that solutions do not enter a sphere, which we term an avoidance neighborhood, around specified isolated points. The constructive controller design methodology, as well as the closedloop properties, is investigated via numerical examples.

An "ideal" state feedback is first designed under certain mild assumptions. Then, a set of extended lowpower highgain observers is systematically designed, providing a complete estimation of the "ideal" feedback law. This yields a robust output feedback stabilizer such that the origin of the closedloop system is semiglobally asymptotically stable, while improving the numerical implementation with the power of highgain parameters up to 2.

This paper proposes a set of tools to make use of such scalings and illustrates their benefits in constructing Lyapunov functions for interconnected nonlinear systems. First, the essence of some scaling techniques used extensively in the literature is reformulated in view of preservation of dissipation inequalities of integral inputtostate stability (iISS) and inputtostate stability (ISS). The iISS smallgain theorem is revisited from this viewpoint. Preservation of ISS dissipation inequalities is shown to not always be necessary, while preserving iISS which is weaker than ISS is convenient. By establishing relationships between the Legendre¿Fenchel transform and the reformulated scaling techniques, this paper proposes a way to construct less complicated Lyapunov functions for interconnected systems.

The stabilization of the longitudinal beam dynamics in these particle accelerators is a demanding control problemsince typical sample times of the beamfeedback loop are on the order of several ìs to several hundred ns. This work examines if model predictive control is a suitable candidate for longitudinal beam feedback in synchrotrons. We show that, by combining an appropriate problem formulation with efficient numerical algorithms, the optimization problem can be solved sufficiently fast on a highend FPGA. Realistic simulations for the synchrotron SIS18 of the GSI Helmholtz Center for HeavyIon Research illustrate that the proposed control scheme can lead to a significant improvement of the control performance.

[more] In this paper we propose a linear program (LP)based algorithm to schedule battery storage colocated with residential solar photovoltaics (PV), when excess generation is compensated via net metering. While the objective of this LPbased approach is to maximize the operational savings that accrue to customers, an undesirable consequence to the utility is reverse power flow during the peak pricing period. We show in this paper that it is possible to balance the objective of the utility in limiting reverse power flow, with the customer objective of increasing operational savings, in the context of net metering. To balance the specified utility and customer objectives we employ a quadratic program (QP)based algorithm, which explicitly penalizes reverse power flow. To complete our assessment of net metering, both the LPbased and QPbased scheduling algorithms are applied to measured load and generation data from 145 residential customers located in an Australian distribution network. The results of this case study confirm the absence of reverse power flow when all customers employ a QPbased battery schedule, with the majority of customers exhibiting operational savings.

[more] Several studies have suggested that battery storage colocated with solar photovoltaics (PV) benefits electricity distributors in maintaining system voltages within acceptable limits. However, without careful coordination, these potential benefits might not be realized. In this paper we propose an optimizationbased algorithm for the scheduling of residential battery storage colocated with solar PV, in the context of PV incentives such as feedin tariffs. Our objective is to maximize the daily operational savings that accrue to customers, while penalizing large voltage swings stemming from reverse power flow and peak load. To achieve this objective we present a quadratic program (QP)based algorithm. To complete our assessment of the customer benefit, the QPbased scheduling algorithm is applied to measured load and generation data from 145 residential customers located in an Australian distribution network. The results of this case study confirm the QPbased scheduling algorithm significantly penalizes reverse power flow and peak loads corresponding to peak timeofuse billing. In the context of feedin tariffs, the majority of customers exhibited operational savings when QP energyshifting.

In the proposed method one first computes an outer approximation of the local attractors using a graphtheoretic approach. Then a candidate Lyapunov function is computed using a Masseralike construction adapted to multiple local attractors. In the final step this candidate Lyapunov function is interpolated over the simplices of a simplicial complex and, by checking certain inequalities at the vertices of the complex, we can identify the region in which the Lyapunov function is decreasing along system trajectories. The resulting Lyapunov function gives information on the qualitative behavior of the dynamics, including lower bounds on the basins of attraction of the individual local attractors. We develop the theory in detail and present numerical examples demonstrating the applicability of our method.

This technique makes use of an auxiliary function, called a Lyapunov function, to ascertain stability properties for a specific system without the need to generate system solutions. An important question is the converse or reversability of Lyapunov's second method; i.e., given a specific stability property does there exist an appropriate Lyapunov function? We survey some of the available answers to this question.

Motivated by the fact that many feedback control laws, such as model predictive or eventbased control, lead to discontinuous discretetime dynamics, we investigate ISSLyapunov functions for such systems. ISSLyapunov functions were originally introduced in a socalled implicationform and, in many cases, this has been shown to be equivalent to an ISSLyapunov function of dissipativeform. However, for discontinuous dynamics, we demonstrate via an example that this equivalence no longer holds. We therefore propose a stronger implicationform ISSLyapunov function and provide a complete characterization of ISSLyapunov functions for discretetime systems with discontinuous dynamics.

The use of these functions typically allows elegant and succinct statements of stability properties such as asymptotic stability and inputtostate stability and its several variants. Furthermore, over the last 20 years several inequalities involving these comparison functions have been developed that simplify their manipulation in the service of proving more significant results. Many of these inequalities have appeared in the body of proofs or in appendices of various papers. Our goal herein is to collect these inequalities in one place. © 2014 The Author(s).

[more] Inputtostate stability (ISS) with respect to two measurement functions subsumes many ISStype properties such as inputtooutput stability (IOS) and stateindependent inputtooutput stability (SIIOS). It also subsumes a version of incremental ISS. In this paper, we develop the notion of ISS with respect to two measurement functions for discretetime systems and highlight the importance of commensurability of the two measurement functions and compactness of the zero set of the lower measurement function. Of particular interest, we show that the obvious extension of an implicationform ISSLyapunov function does not imply ISS with respect to two measurement functions.

In an attempt to minimize energy production costs, we propose an NMPC scheme to maximize the wind energy harvest while mitigating structural loads. The proposed controller relies on noisy lookahead wind field information obtained via LIDAR measurements. By means of simulations we demonstrate the advantages of the proposed NMPC approach.

An example in previous work shows that, in the two measurement function case, the existence of an implicationform ISSLyapunov function does not imply ISS. Here, we define a "strong" ISSLyapunov function and demonstrate that its existence is equivalent to ISS with respect to two measurement functions.

[more] Recently it has been shown that general bilinear systems satisfy a nonlinear L2gain property, which is a qualitatively equivalent special case of the more general integral inputtostate stability (iISS) property. By exploiting a smallgain theorem that attends this nonlinear L2gain property, a nontrivial example of a feedback interconnection for general bilinear systems is constructed that preserves this nonlinear L2gain property, and hence iISS, in closed loop.

In this paper, the essence of some scaling techniques used extensively in the literature is reformulated in view of preservation of dissipation inequalities of integral inputtostate stability (iISS) and inputtostate stability (ISS). The iISS smallgain theorem is revisited from this viewpoint. Preservation of ISS dissipation inequalities is shown to not always be necessary, while preserving iISS which is weaker than ISS is convenient. By establishing relationships between the LegendreFenchel transform and the reformulated scaling techniques, this paper proposes a way to construct less complicated Lyapunov functions for interconnected systems.

In particular, two different summationtosummation estimates are shown to be equivalent to the standard definitions of InputtoState Stability (ISS) and integral ISS (iISS), respectively. Furthermore, ISS and iISS are shown to be qualitatively equivalent, via a nonlinear change of coordinates, to linear and nonlinear l2gain properties, respectively. These equivalences, together with a previous result on the equivalence of 0input global asymptotic stability and iISS provide interesting relationships between discretetime robust stability properties that do not hold in continuoustime.

[more] This paper considers the finitefield multiway relay channel with pairwise message sharing, where multiple users exchange messages through a single relay and where the users may share parts of their source messages (meaning that some message parts are known/common to more than one user). In this paper, we design an optimal functionaldecodeforward coding scheme that takes the shared messages into account. More specifically, we design an optimal function for the relay to decode (from the users on the uplink) and forward (back to the users on the downlink). We then show that this proposed functiondecodeforward coding scheme can achieve the capacity region of the finitefield multiway relay channel with pairwise message sharing. This paper generalizes our previous result for the case of three users to any number of users. © 2014 IEEE.

Specifically, we consider a linearquadratic model predictive control (MPC) approach, whereby the quadratic program is solved via a fast gradient method. Furthermore, we investigate whether the fast gradient method allows for realtime feasible implementation of the proposed approach on a field programmable gate array (FPGA). Our results indicate that sampling rates in the order of 1MHz are achievable.
