In a recent paper , the Interconnection and Damping Assignment Passivity-based Control (IDA-PBC) method  is studied in the case when the key matching equation is not satisfied. The paper proposes to fix a desired storage function and to design a scaling matrix, which is obtained solving an algebraic Lyapunov equation, in such a way that the linearized dynamics of the closed-loop system is stable – without the need to solve the matching equation. Unfortunately, the derivations in  are incorrect, invalidating the results of the paper, in particular, Proposition 1. To explain the problems encountered in , in the present note we first re-derive the closed-loop dynamics of a system controlled using the IDA-PBC method in the case when the matching condition is not satisfied, that is, Eq. (11) in . This computations are carried-out following a route, which is slightly different from the one used in , that we believe is more general and straightforward. Then, we indicate the points that invalidate Proposition 1.
