Controllability of continuous bimodal linear systems
Ferrer Llop, Jose; Pacha Andujar, Juan Ramon; Peña Carrera, Marta
Mathematical problems in engineering
Date of publication: 20130501
Journal article
Read the abstract Access to the full text Share Reference managersWe consider bimodal linear systems consisting of two linear dynamics acting on each side of a given hyperplane, assuming continuity along the separating hyperplane. We prove that the study of controllability can be reduced to the unobservable case, and for these ones we obtain a simple explicit characterization of controllability for dimensions 2 and 3, as well as some partial criteria for higher dimensions

Moreover, we obtain the dimension of the orbit, characterize the structurally stable vertical pairs and study the effect of each deformation parameter.

Journal article
Read the abstract View Share Reference managersIt is well known that, when a full rank observable pair (C,A) is slightly perturbed, the new observability indices k′ are majorized by the initial ones k, k≻k′. Conversely, any indices k′ majorized by k can be obtained by perturbing (C,A). The aim of this paper is the explicit construction of perturbations of (C,A) which have the desired indices k′ by means of a sequence of uniparametrical versal perturbations. Even more, using versal deformations we refine this construction in such a way that the perturbation has the maximum possible number of zeros and no parameters in the square part.

Date of publication: 2010
Journal article
Read the abstract Access to the full text Share Reference managersGiven a general local differentiable family of pairs of matrices, we obtain a local differentiable family of feedbacks solving the pole assignment problem, that is to say, shifting the spectrum into a prefixed one. We point out that no additional hypothesis is needed. In fact, simple approaches work in particular cases (controllable pairs, constancy of the dimension of the controllable subspace, and so on). Here the general case is proved by means of Arnold’s techniques: the key point is to reduce the construction to a versal deformation of the central pair; in fact to a quite singular miniversal one for which the family of feedbacks can be explicitly constructed. As a direct application, a differentiable family of stabilizing feedbacks is obtained, provided that the central pair is stabilizable.

Read the abstract Access to the full text Share Reference managersThe Bologna process is a good opportunity to bring together firstyear mathematics courses of engineering degrees and technology courses offered in subsequent years. In fact, the Faculty Council has decided that 20% of the credits from basic courses must be related to technological applications. To this end, during the past academic year a mathematical engineering seminar was held with each session dealing with one technological discipline. The main goal of the seminar, which relied on the presence of speakers from both mathematics and engineering departments, was to identify the most commonly used mathematical tools. Furthermore, a set of exercises and some guidelines addressed to faculty lacking an engineering background were created. Here, we present some of this material: first, a summary of the collection of exercises illustrating the use of Linear Algebra in different engineering areas such as Mechanical Engineering, Control and Automation, and second, some exercises

Read the abstract View Share Reference managersSpecific algorithms, such as those involving the supremal of the invariant subspaces contained in a suitable subspace, are known to be able to test whether a disturbance decoupling problem (DDP) is solvable. Here, by reducing the system to its Molinari form, we obtain an alternative description of this supremal object and compute its dimension. Hence we have a general result for solving the decoupling provided that a Molinari basis is known. In particular, a necessary numerical condition for it is derived. The same technique is applied to the DDPS, that is, when stability of the decoupled closed loop system is required.

Identificandolas con parejas de matrices cuadradas, podemos utilizar la tecnica de las deformaciones miniversales para averiguar, dada una pareja de tensores cualquiera, cuales son las parejas de tensores que se pueden obtener al perturbar ligeramente la dada, puesto que las clases de equivalencia se pueden identificar con las orbitas que resultan al actuar un grupo de Lie sobre la variedad diferenciable de las parejas de matrices simetricas y son, por lo tanto, variedades diferenciables. Presentamos también las dimensiones que son posibles para dichas orbitas.
