    In this work, Unity Vector Control is revisited based on the results by V. Utkin and co-workers. The approach here presented extends the one reported by V. Utkin and co-workers so that independent feedback gains may be ...
  • Sliding mode controller and flatness based set-point generator for a three wheeled narrow vehicle 

    Roqueiro, Nestor; de Faria, Marcelo G.; Fossas Colet, Enric (IFAC, 2011)
    Conference report

    This paper presents a sliding mode Controller for a narrow tilting three wheeled vehicle. A dynamic model of eighteenth order is presented for simulation purposes only. Design and analysis are based on a simpler third ...
  • Variable-structure control with complementarity-inputs for a lean-burn IC engine of a series hybrid vehicle 

    Roqueiro, Nestor; Fossas Colet, Enric; Martins Oliveira, A. A.; Puleston, Paul Federico (2015-07-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper presents a robust controller for an internal combustion (IC) engine, as the first stage of a project to develop a hybrid light urban vehicle, running on ethanol in lean burn. In particular, this work focuses on ...
