We present a three-layer iterative algorithm for fast and efficient solutions of electromagnetic problems formulated with surface integral equations. The strategy is based on nested iterative solutions employing the multilevel fast multipole algorithm and its approximate forms. We show that the three-layer mechanism significantly reduces solution times, while it requires no additional memory as opposed to algebraic preconditioners. Numerical examples involving three-dimensional scattering problems are presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm.

Solving Constrained Optimal Control Problems Using State-Dependent Factorization and Chebyshev Polynomials
Gomroki, Mohammad Mehdi; Topputo, Francesco; Bernelli-Zazzera, Franco; Tekinalp, Ozan (2018-03-01)
The present work introduces a method to solve constrained nonlinear optimal control problems using state-dependent coefficient factorization and Chebyshev polynomials. A recursive approximation technique known as approximating sequence of Riccati equations is used to replace the nonlinear problem by a sequence of linear-quadratic and time-varying approximating problems. The state variables are approximated and expanded in Chebyshev polynomials. Then, the control variables are written as a function of state ...
A Simulink Nonlinear Model for LSRA Control Scheme Analysis
Pestana, Luis M.; Calado, M. do Rosario A.; Mariano, Silvio S. (2011-09-10)
This paper addresses the nonlinear model implementation of a Linear Switched Reluctance Actuator (LSRA) in the MATLAB/ Simulink simulation package. The model is based in an already implemented motor model for the rotating machine, which was improved and adopted to be applied in the analysis of a linear actuator. Both the magnetic information from experimental data and results obtained from Finite Element Analysis (FEA) were used to perform that study. The model is used in the assessment of several control s...
SOLUTIONS OF LARGE-SCALE ELECTROMAGNETICS PROBLEMS USING AN ITERATIVE INNER-OUTER SCHEME WITH ORDINARY AND APPROXIMATE MULTILEVEL FAST MULTIPOLE ALGORITHMS
Ergül, Özgür Salih; Gurel, L. (2010-01-01)
We present an iterative inner-outer scheme for the efficient solution of large-scale electromagnetics problems involving perfectly-conducting objects formulated with surface integral equations. Problems are solved by employing the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA) on parallel computer systems. In order to construct a robust preconditioner, we develop an approximate MLFMA (AMLFMA) by systematically increasing the efficiency of the ordinary MLFMA. Using a flexible outer solver, iterative MLFMA solut...
Assessment of Transient Stability of Nonlinear Dynamic Systems by the Method of Tangent Hyperplanes and the Method of Tangent Hypersurfaces
Eskicioglu, Ahmet M. (ASME International, 1989-9-1)
Two direct methods, the method of tangent hyperplanes and the method of tangent hypersurfaces, are applied to an elementary nonlinear dynamic system for transient stability assessment. The former method is based on the approximation of the asymptotic stability boundary by hyperplanes at a certain class of unstable singular points in the state-space, and the latter replaces hyperplanes by hypersurfaces. The applicability and accuracy of both methods are evaluated through a comparison of results.

Bakir, Onur; Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem; Erturk, Vakur B.; Chou, Hsi-Tseng (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2008-6)
A hybrid method based on the combination of generalized forward backward method (GFBM) and Green's function for the grounded dielectric slab together with the acceleration of the combination via a discrete Fourier transform (DFT) based algorithm is developed for the efficient and accurate analysis of electromagnetic radiation/scattering from electrically large, irregularly contoured two-dimensional arrays consisting of finite number of probe-fed microstrip patches. In this method, unknown current coefficien...
