    A major upgrade will be conducted in the Large Hardon Collider (LHC) at CERN. This high-luminosity (HL) version of the LHC will increase the nominal luminosity by a factor of five. One of the key technologies of the HL-LHC ...
  • Comparison of first- and second-order sliding-mode controllers for a dc-dc dual active bridge 

    Dòria Cerezo, Arnau; Serra, Federico; Esteban, Francisco Daniel; Biel Solé, Domingo; Griñó Cubero, Robert (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2022-04-12)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper compares four sliding-mode control strategies for a dual active bridge. The proposed control algorithms define different switching functions resulting in first-and second-order controllers, and using both ...
  • Sliding modes in a class of complex-valued nonlinear systems
