TITLE
Tools for the Analysis and Design of Hybrid Systems with Applications to Power Systems

ABSTRACT
The rapid growth of digital networks has enabled systems at different locations to perform joint tasks, such as coordination, synchronization, and estimation. At the same time, it has brought about analysis and design challenges, mainly due to the presence of events, heterogeneity, distributed information, as well as unavoidable uncertainty in the models and data. In this talk, I will outline recent advances in hybrid feedback control design that are particularly motivated by power systems applications. I will summarize a hybrid systems framework that is suitable for the design of robust hybrid control algorithms for single and multiple, interconnected hybrid systems. After introducing an appropriate notion of solution and basic properties on the system data, I will present tools for the analysis and design of robust hybrid feedback control systems. The focus will be on tools that certify dynamical properties of interest, robustly, such as invariance, attractivity, and stability. I will illustrate the impact of these theoretical results in power systems applications, especially in power conversion. If time allows, I will show how these and other applications in robotics demand tools that lead to hybrid control algorithms that are reactive, predictive, close to optimal, while being computationally efficient.

BIO
Ricardo G. Sanfelice is Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of California at Santa Cruz, CA, USA. He received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in 2004 and 2007, respectively, from the University of California, Santa Barbara. During 2007 and 2008, he was a Postdoctoral Associate at the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and visited the Centre Automatique et Systèmes at the Ecole de Mines de Paris for four months.
