  • Adaptive-smith predictor for controlling an automotive electronic throttle over network 

    Caruntu, Constantin; Vargas, Alessandro; Acho Zuppa, Leonardo; Pujol Vázquez, Gisela (Elsevier, 2018-04)
    Article
    Open Access
    The paper presents a control strategy for an automotive electronic throttle, a device used to regulate the power produced by spark-ignition engines. Controlling the electronic throttle body is a difficult task because ...
  • Robust H2 static output feedback to control an autmomotive throttle valve 

    Vargas, Alessandro; Acho Zuppa, Leonardo; Pujol Vázquez, Gisela; Oliveira, Ricardo C.L.F.; do Val, Joao B.R.; Peres, Pedro L.D. (2014)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    The paper presents a control strategy for an automotive electronic throttle body, a device largely used into vehicles to increase the efficiency of the combustion engines. The synthesis of the proposed controller is based ...
  • Set-valued estimation of switching linear system: an application to an automotive throttle valve 

    Podivilova, Elena; Vargas, Alessandro; Shiryaev, Vladimir; Acho Zuppa, Leonardo (2015)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper introduces a polyhedral approximation algorithm for set-valued estimation of switching linear systems. The algorithm generates set-valued estimates for any possible sequence of switching parameters, under ...
  • Stability of Markov jump systems with quadratic terms and its application to RLC circuits 

    Vargas, Alessandro; Pujol Vázquez, Gisela; Acho Zuppa, Leonardo (2016-10-05)
    Article
    Open Access
    The paper presents results for the second moment stability of continuous-time Markov jump systems with quadratic terms, aiming for engineering applications. Quadratic terms stem from physical constraints in applications, ...
  • Switching stochastic nonlinear systems with application to an automotive throttle 

    Vargas, Alessandro; F. Costa, Eduardo; Acho Zuppa, Leonardo; B. R. do Val, Joao (2017-12-13)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper presents results to assure the almost sure stability of switching stochastic nonlinear systems. The switching rule governing the parameters of the system is driven by independent and identically distributed ...
  • Unscented Kalman filters for estimating the position of an automotive electronic throttle valve 

    Vargas, Alessandro; Menegaz, Henrique; Ishihara, Joao; Acho Zuppa, Leonardo (2016)
    Article
    Open Access
    The paper presents an application of unscented Kalman filters to an automotive electronic throttle device. The motivation of this study is on estimating the position of the throttle device when measurements of position ...
