Synchronization analysis of coupled Lienard-type oscillators by averaging

2012-08-01
Sufficient conditions for the synchronization of coupled Lienard-type oscillators are investigated via averaging technique. The coupling considered here is fixed, nonsymmetric, and nonlinear. Under the assumption that the interconnection topology defines a connected graph, it is shown that the solutions of oscillators converge arbitrarily close to each other, starting from initial conditions arbitrarily far apart, provided that the frequency of oscillations is large enough and the initial phases of oscillators all lie in an open semicircle. It is also shown that the nearly-synchronized oscillations always take place around some fixed magnitude independent of the initial conditions and the coupling functions.

Synchronization of nonlinearly coupled harmonic oscillators
Cai, Chaohong; Tuna, Sezai Emre (2010-07-02)
Synchronization of coupled harmonic oscillators is investigated. Coupling considered here is pairwise, unidirectional, and described by a nonlinear function (whose graph resides in the first and third quadrants) of some projection of the relative distance (between the states of the pair being coupled) vector. Under the assumption that the interconnection topology defines a connected graph, it is shown that the synchronization manifold is semiglobally practically asymptotically stable in the frequency of osc...
Synchronization of linearly and nonlinearly coupled harmonic oscillators
Penbegül, Ali Yetkin; Tuna, Sezai Emre; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2011)
In this thesis, the synchronization in the arrays of identical and non-identical coupled harmonic oscillators is studied. Both linear and nonlinear coupling is considered. The study consists of two main parts. The first part concentrates on theoretical analysis and the second part contains the simulation results. The first part begins with introducing the harmonic oscillators and the basics of synchronization. Then some theoretical aspects of synchronization of linearly and nonlinearly coupled harmonic osci...
Synchronization of harmonic oscillators under restorative coupling with applications in electrical networks
Tuna, Sezai Emre (2017-01-01)
The role of restorative coupling on synchronization of coupled identical harmonic oscillators is studied. Necessary and sufficient conditions, under which the individual systems' solutions converge to a common trajectory, are presented. Through simple physical examples, the meaning and limitations of the theorems are expounded. Also, to demonstrate their versatility, the results are extended to cover LTI passive electrical networks. One of the extensions generalizes the well-known link between the asymptoti...
Synchronizing linear systems via partial-state coupling
Tuna, Sezai Emre (2008-08-01)
A basic result in the synchronization of linear systems via output coupling is presented. For identical discrete-time linear systems that are detectable from their Outputs and neutrally stable, it is shown that a linear Output feedback law exists under which the Coupled systems globally asymptotically synchronize for all fixed connected (asymmetrical) network topologies. An algorithm is provided to Compute Such a feedback law based on individual system parameters.
Nonlinear Structural Coupling: Experimental Application
Kalaycioglu, Taner; Özgüven, Hasan Nevzat (2014-02-06)
In this work, the nonlinear structural modification/coupling technique proposed recently by the authors is applied to a test system in order to study the applicability of the method to real structures. The technique is based on calculating the frequency response functions of a modified system from those of the original system and the dynamic stiffness matrix of the nonlinear modifying part. The modification can also be in the form of coupling a nonlinear system to the original system. The test system used i...
