Real-Time Learning of Efficient Lift Generation on a Dynamically Scaled Flapping Wing

Real-Time Learning of Efficient Lift Generation on a Dynamically Scaled Flapping Wing

This work presents a successful application of a policy search algorithm to a real-time robotic learning problem, where the goal is to maximize the efficiency of lift generation on a dynamically scaled flapping robotic wing. Learning is performed for different prescribed stroke amplitudes to find the optimal wing pitching amplitude and the stroke-pitch phase difference that maximize lift generation's power loading (PL), a measure of aerodynamic efficiency.

Control for a Supercapacitor Hybrid Energy Storage System Used in Electric Vehicles

Control for a Supercapacitor Hybrid Energy Storage System Used in Electric Vehicles

This paper proposes the control strategy of a fully active hybrid energy storage system, which uses two bi-directional DC/DC converters to decouple supercapacitors and the battery pack from the DC bus. A Lyapunov-function-based controller regulates DC bus voltage, and a sliding mode controller, controlling the battery and supercapacitor currents, is designed. Their performance is validated by simulation and experimental data.
