Worst case power generating capabilities of nonlinear systems

Dower, Peter M; James, Matthew


In this paper we analyze the worst case power generating capabilities of a class of nonlinear systems which exhibit a power gain property. This class of systems includes systems which exhibit persistent excitation in the absence of inputs. Examples include limit cycle systems and chaotic systems. In order to capture the power generating capability of a nonlinear system, we define a worst case average cost per unit time performance index. This performance index, called the available power, is in...[Show more]
