In this paper, a new robust finite-time hyperchaotic secure communication scheme is proposed by combining robust finite-time synchronization of two hyperchaotic systems and hyperchaotic multiplication masking technique. The mentioned synchronization is achieved by introducing new terminal sliding mode controllers. As a main novelty of the introduced scheme, an adjustable total finite time is obtained such that the decrypted message signal will be completely identical with the transmitted message signal for times larger than the discussed finite time. Compared with other secure communication schemes, the suggested method has several advantages including finite-time stability for dynamical...

This paper investigates the finite-Time landing of a spacecraft on a celestial target subjected to disturbances and air drag forces. Based on nonsingular fast terminal sliding mode control, a novel guidance law is designed to accomplish the landing goal within a specified finite time while the upper bound of disturbances is assumed to be known. Finally, a numerical example of the spacecraft landing problem is simulated by applying the proposed scheme. The obtained results illustrate that the designed guidance law can achieve the landing goal in the specified finite time

This paper addresses a simple chattering-free and finite-time convergent robust synchronization scheme for a general class of disturbed master and slave chaotic systems. Unlike traditional variable structure control schemes, the proposed controller does not directly include a switching function, and chattering is avoided. The term including switching function is the input of a low-pass filter where the filtered output is used in the controller. Also, numerical differentiation of master and slave state trajectories is not required to implement the controller. Stability of the proposed controller is established using a Lyapunov stability analysis and the finite-time convergence theories....

In the aspect of further development of investigations in the area of spacecraft modeling and analysis of the control scheme, a new hybrid finite-time robust three-axis cascade attitude control approach is proposed via pulse modulation synthesis. The full quaternion based control approach proposed here is organized in association with both the inner and the outer closed loops. It is shown that the inner closed loop, which consists of the sliding mode finite-time control approach, the pulse width pulse frequency modulator, the control allocation and finally the dynamics of the spacecraft is realized to track the three-axis referenced commands of the angular velocities. The pulse width pulse...
Finite time-Lyapunov based approach for robust adaptive control of wind-induced oscillations in power transmission lines, Article Journal of Sound and Vibration ; Volume 371 , 2016 , Pages 19-34 ; 0022460X (ISSN) ; Moradi, H ; Vossoughi, G ; Sharif University of Technology

Large amplitude oscillation of the power transmission lines, which is also known as galloping phenomenon, has hazardous consequences such as short circuiting and failure of transmission line. In this article, to suppress the undesirable vibrations of the transmission lines, first the governing equations of transmission line are derived via mode summation technique. Then, due to the occurrence of large amplitude vibrations, nonlinear quadratic and cubic terms are included in the derived linear equations. To suppress the vibrations, arbitrary number of the piezoelectric actuators is assumed to exert the actuation forces. Afterwards, a Lyapunov based approach is proposed for the robust adaptive...

In the first part of the paper, using a direct calculation two-dimensional motion of a particle sliding on an inclined plane is investigated for general values of friction coefficient (μ). A parametric equation for the trajectory of the particle is also obtained. In the second part of the paper, the motion of a sphere on the inclined plane is studied. It is shown that the evolution equation for the contact point of a sliding sphere is similar to that of a point particle sliding on an inclined plane whose friction coefficient is 7/2 μ. If μ > 2/7 tanθ, for any arbitrary initial velocity and angular velocity, the sphere will roll on the inclined plane after some finite time. In other cases, it...

The Carnot, Diesel, Otto, and Brayton power cycles are reconsidered endoreversibly in finite time thermodynamics (FTT). In particular, the thermal efficiency of these standard power cycles is compared to the well-known results in classical thermodynamics. The present analysis based on FTT modelling shows that a reduction in both the maximum and minimum temperatures of the cycle causes the thermal efficiency to increase. This is antithetical to the existing trend in the classical references. Under the assumption of endoreversibility, the relation between the efficiencies is also changed to ηCarnot > ηBrayton > ηDiesel > ηOtto, which is again very different from the corresponding classical...

This paper deals with the robust finite time tracking of desired trajectories for a wide group of robotic manipulators in spite of unknown disturbances, uncertainties, and saturations of actuators while only manipulator's positions are available and its velocities are not measurable physically. A new form of chattering-free second order fast nonsingular terminal sliding mode control scheme is introduced to design input torques for fulfilling the determined tracking objective in the adjustable total finite settling time. The proposed control algorithm is incorporated with two nonlinear observers to estimate disturbances and velocities of joints within finite settling times. The global finite...
Concurrent learning based finite-time parameter estimation in adaptive control of uncertain switched nonlinear systems, Article Journal of Control, Automation and Electrical Systems ; Volume 28, Issue 4 , 2017 , Pages 444-456 ; 21953880 (ISSN) ; Yazdani, M ; Sinafar, B ; Sharif University of Technology

In this paper, We develop concurrent learning adaptive controller, which uses recorded and current data concurrently for adaptation, to model reference adaptive control (MRAC) of uncertain switched nonlinear systems. In standard MRAC architecture for switched systems, the adaptive update laws are derived based on the gradient descent scheme, but here we developed two novel parameter estimation schemes by using modification terms in adaptation laws in which recorded data are used simultaneously with current data and a triggering time is considered in which a sufficient condition on the linear independence of the recorded data is obtained to guarantee the exponential convergence of tracking...

In this research, to overcome the challenging problem of the vibration suppression in the wind turbine blade, an active robust adaptive finite-time model reference controller is introduced. First, edgewise vibrations of the wind turbine blade, with consideration of the platform heave displacements, is modeled by Euler-Bernoulli beam theory. Then, the appropriate adaptation laws and control laws are introduced to compensate the uncertainties and guarantee the convergence to the desired reference model. The robustness and convergence of the designed adaptation and control laws are mathematically proved via finite-time Lyapunov theory. Performance of the designed robust adaptive finite-time...

There are many practical situations where it is desirable or even required to achieve stable convergence in the finite-time domain. In this paper, a simple distributed continuous-time protocol is introduced that guarantees finite-time consensus in networks of autonomous agents. Protocol convergence in weighted directed/undirected and fixed/switching networks is explored based on a Lyapunov analysis. The stability of the system and the solvability of the consensus algorithm are proved for network topologies that contain a spanning tree frequently enough over contiguous time intervals. The decision value for different topologies and for multi-rate integrator agents is investigated, and a novel...

In this paper, a new form of generalized nonsingular fast terminal sliding mode control approach is proposed to provide the finite time tracking in connected chain of double integrator nonlinear systems subjected to additive bounded unknown uncertainties, disturbances, and internal interactions. The proposed approach presents an adjustable finite time for achieving the tracking goal which is a summation of two separate tunable times including finite reaching time and finite settling time. Tuning of the total finite time is done by adjusting arbitrary parameters in the control inputs and sliding surfaces. The high frequency switching of the control method is removed by applying a second order...
Trunk dynamic stability assessment for individuals with and without nonspecific low back pain during repetitive movement, Article Human Factors ; 2020 ; Mokhtarinia, H. R ; Sanjari, M. A ; Kahrizi, S ; Philip, G. C ; Parnianpour, M ; Khalaf, K ; Sharif University of Technology

Objective: This study aimed to employ nonlinear dynamic approaches to assess trunk dynamic stability with speed, symmetry, and load during repetitive flexion-extension (FE) movements for individuals with and without nonspecific low back pain (NSLBP). Background: Repetitive trunk FE movement is a typical work-related LBP risk factor contingent on speed, symmetry, and load. Improper settings/adjustments of these control parameters could undermine the dynamic stability of the trunk, hence leading to low back injuries. The underlying stability mechanisms and associated control impairments during such dynamic movements remain elusive. Method: Thirty-eight male volunteers (19 healthy, 19 NSLBP)...

This paper addresses the finite-time controller design for a class of nonlinear systems in the non-strict feedback form subject to unknown system dynamics and disturbances, arbitrary asymmetric time-varying output constraints, four types of input nonlinearities, and unknown control direction. Utilizing the barrier Lyapunov function (BLF) and backstepping technique, an adaptive finite-time controller has been proposed. The difficulties associating with non-strict feedback systems have been handled using the variable separation approach. Furthermore, the unknown control direction problem has been tackled by using the Nussbaum gain function. A unified framework has been utilized for handling...

In this work, design of an adaptive finite-time fault-tolerant controller for a class of uncertain multi-input multi-output (MIMO) nonlinear switched systems with unmodeled dynamics subject to asymmetric time-varying output constraints and unknown faulty input nonlinearities has been addressed. The number of actuator faults can be infinite. In addition, the proposed control algorithm can cope with different unknown types of input nonlinearities namely, saturation, dead zone, backlash, and hysteresis. Actuator faults and input nonlinearities can be different in different modes. To estimate the system uncertainties, neural networks (NNs) have been employed and the unmodeled dynamics has been...

In this paper we develop two models; the without shortages and the completely backlogging shortages with the price dependant demand rate under time value of money and inflation, finite time horizon and exponentially deterioration rate with the objective of maximizing the present worth of the total system profit. Using the dynamic programming method for each model, we are able to obtain different selling price, order quantity and cycle length for each cycle. We also use a proper numerical example to show accuracy of the solution procedures and to compare the results. This research and its results are unique and have never been concluded before

Fast finite time adaptive sliding mode control of a quadrotor in the presence of uncertainties and unbounded external disturbances is dealt in this paper. To this end, a fractional order sliding surface is first defined and then, an adaptive sliding mode controller is designed to guarantee finite time stability with fast convergence of quadrotor states to the desired trajectory. In this controller, it is assumed that the upper bound of the model uncertainties and external disturbances is a nonlinear function with unknown coefficients. These coefficients are estimated via stable adaptive laws. Finite time stability of the closed-loop system is analyzed using Lyapunov theorem. Simulation...
