Mechanical Systems with Partial Damping: Two Examples
We discuss the problem of constructing steady state motions of mechanical systems with partial damping. A planar three bar linkage with viscous damping at one of the joints is considered as an example. We show that for a ...
Noninteracting Control with Stability for a Class of Nonlinear Systems
In this paper we address the problem of noninteracting control with stability for the class of nonlinear square systems for which noninteraction can be achieved (without stability) by means of invertible static state-feedback. ...
Stabilization of Globally Noninteractive Nonlinear Systems via Dynamic State-Feedback
We consider the problem of semiglobal asymptotic stabilization and noninteracting control via dynamic state-feedback for a class of nonlinear control systems. It is assumed that the plant has been already rendered ...
Optimal Control of a Rigid Body with Two Oscillators
This paper is concerned with the exploration of reduction and explicit solvability of optimal control problems on principal bundles with connections from a Hamiltonian point of view. The particular mechanical system we ...
