Dynamic Decoupling of Nonlinear Systems
Kalaycioglu, Taner; Özgüven, Hasan Nevzat (2017-02-02)
Structural decoupling problem has been well investigated for three decades and led to several decoupling methods. In spite of the inherent nonlinearities in a structural system in various forms all decoupling studies are for linear systems. In this study, decoupling problem for nonlinear systems is addressed for the first time and a method is proposed for calculating the frequency response functions of a substructure decoupled from a coupled nonlinear structure where nonlinearity can be modelled as a single...
Comparison of iterative algorithms for parameter estimation in nonlinear regression
Musluoğlu, Gamze; Akkaya, Ayşen; Department of Statistics (2018)
Nonlinear regression models are more common as compared to linear ones for real life cases e.g. climatology, biology, earthquake engineering, economics etc. However, nonlinear regression models are much more complex to fit and to interpret. Classical parameter estimation methods such as least squares and maximum likelihood can also be adopted to fit the model in nonlinear regression as well, but explicit solutions can not be achieved unlike linear models. At this point, iterative algorithms are utilized to ...
Numerical modelling of spatio-temporal patterns in a DC-driven gas discharge-semiconductor system
Özden, Gözde; Rafatov, İsmail; Karasözen, Bülent; Department of Scientific Computing (2015)
In this thesis, numerical modelling of temporal and spatial pattern formation in the planar layered system, consisted of a DC driven planar gas discharge layer, coupled to high ohmic semiconductor layer, is carried out in 1D and 2D Cartesian geometry. Numerical model includes continuity equations for ions and electrons, the Poisson equation for the electric field, the energy balance equation for the background gas. The conditions correspond to a transition from the Townsend regime to the glow discharge. Cal...
Digital controller design for sampled-data nonlinear systems
Üstüntürk, Ahmet; Kocaoğlan, Erol; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2012)
In this thesis, digital controller design methods for sampled-data nonlinear systems are considered. Although sampled-data nonlinear control has attracted much attention in recent years, the controller design methods for sampled-data nonlinear systems are still limited. Therefore, a range of controller design methods for sampled-data nonlinear systems are developed such as backstepping, adaptive and robust backstepping, reduced-order observer-based output feedback controller design methods based on the Eule...
Investigation of the particle breakage parameters in locked-cycle ball milling
Acar, Cemil; Hoşten, Çetin; Department of Mining Engineering (2012)
Size reduction processes, particularly fine grinding systems, in mineral processing and cement production plants constitute a great portion of energy consumption and operating costs. Therefore, the grinding systems should be designed properly and operated under optimum conditions to achieve productive and cost effective operations. The use of simulation based on kinetic mathematical models of grinding has proven useful in this respect. The kinetic models contain two essential parameters, namely, breakage ra...
