#### Output feedback of Markov jump linear systems with no mode observation: An automotive throttle application

(2016-01-01)

Summary The note presents an output feedback control strategy for Markov jump linear systems with no mode observation. Based on minimizing a finite-time quadratic cost, we derive an algorithm that generates output feedback ...

#### Almost periodic parameters for the second moment stability of linear stochastic systems

(2014-12-31)

The technical note presents conditions to assure the uniform second moment stability for a class of linear time-varying stochastic systems. The system parameters are assumed to be almost periodic, a concept that is weaker ...

#### Gradient-based optimization techniques for the design of static controllers for Markov jump linear systems with unobservable modes

(2014-12-31)

The paper formulates the static control problem of Markov jump linear systems, assuming that the controller does not have access to the jump variable. We derive the expression of the gradient for the cost motivated by the ...

#### Robust ‚H-2 static output feedback to control an automotive throttle valve

(2014-12-31)

The paper presents a control strategy for an automotive electronic throttle body, a device largely used into vehicles to increase the efficiency of the combustion engines. The synthesis of the proposed controller is based ...

#### On the control of Markov jump linear systems with no mode observation: Application to a DC Motor device

(2013-12-31)

This paper deals with the control problem of discrete-time Markov jump linear systems for the case in which the controller does not have access to the state of the Markov chain. A necessary optimal condition, which is ...

#### Second moment constraints and the control problem of Markov jump linear systems

(2013-12-31)

This paper addresses the optimal solution for the regulator control problem of Markov jump linear systems subject to second moment constraints. We can characterize and obtain the solution explicitly using linear matrix ...

#### Control of temperature to suppress the population of Rhyzopertha dominica (F.) (Coleoptera, Bostrichidae) in a grain silo prototype

(2013-12-31)

This note presents some results from laboratory experiments that were conducted to characterize the influence of temperature in the mortality of adults of the insect known as lesser grain borer, Rhyzopertha dominica (F.). ...

#### On the numerical solution of the control problem of switched linear systems

(2013-12-31)

This paper presents a method to compute an epsilon-optimal solution of the control problem of switched linear systems. A difficulty that emerges in the evalution of the optimal solution is that the cardinality of the ...

#### Stationary policies for the second moment stability in a class of stochastic systems

(2011-12-31)

This paper presents a study on the uniform second moment stability for a class of stochastic control system. The main result states that the existence of the long-run average cost under a stationary policy is equivalent ...
