© 2022 Elsevier Inc.This paper presents a family of implicit-explicit (IMEX) time stepping scheme for the optimal control problem of the unsteady Navier-Stokes equations (NSE). The main feature of this kind of optimal control problem is that stabilization terms are proportional to discrete curvature of the solutions. First and second order optimality conditions are used for optimality of the curvature based stabilized Navier-Stokes equations. Complete stability and error analyses of state, adjoint and control variables are presented. Numerical experiments verify theoretical findings and illustrate the improvement of approximate solutions enhancing the efficiency of numerical scheme.

Time filtered second order backward Euler method for EMAC formulation of Navier-Stokes equations
Demir, Medine; Çıbık, Aytekin; Kaya Merdan, Songül (2022-12-15)
© 2022 Elsevier Inc.This paper considers the backward Euler based linear time filtering method for the developed energy-momentum-angular momentum conserving (EMAC) formulation of the time dependent-incompressible Navier-Stokes equations in the case of weakly enforced divergence constraint. The method adds time filtering as a post-processing step to the EMAC formulation to enhance the accuracy and to improve the approximate solutions. We show that in comparison with the Backward-Euler based EMAC formulation ...
Cascaded Multilevel Inverters Fault Control
Farzaneh, Alireza; Nazarzadeh, Jalal (2011-09-10)
This paper proposes a new control method to increase cascaded multilevel inverters (CMI) efficiency at faulty condition. The influence of most probability fault on CMI with carrier based pulse width modulation (CBPWM) is investigated and the maximum output voltage is derived without elimination of faulty power cell. This method is able to produce balanced phase voltage on faulty phase. In addition proposed method can be used in the H -bridge cascaded multilevel inverter of any voltage levels. Simulation res...
A priori error analysis of the upwind symmetric interior penalty Galerkin (SIPG) method for the optimal control problems governed by unsteady convection diffusion equations
AKMAN, Tugba; Yücel, Hamdullah; Karasözen, Bülent (2014-04-01)
In this paper, we analyze the symmetric interior penalty Galerkin (SIPG) for distributed optimal control problems governed by unsteady convection diffusion equations with control constraint bounds. A priori error estimates are derived for the semi- and fully-discrete schemes by using piecewise linear functions. Numerical results are presented, which verify the theoretical results.
Optimal control and reduced order modelling of Fitzhugh–Nagumo equation
Küçükseyhan , Tuğba; Karasözen, Bülent; Uzunca, Murat; Department of Scientific Computing (2017)
In this thesis, we investigate model order reduction and optimal control of FitzHugh-Nagumo equation (FHNE). FHNE is coupled partial differential equations (PDEs) of activator-inhibitor types. Diffusive FHNE is a model for the transmission of electrical impulses in a nerve axon, whereas the convective FHNE is a model for blood coagulation in a moving excitable media. We discretize these state FHNEs using a symmetric interior penalty Galerkin (SIPG) method in space and an average vector field (AVF) method in...
Implementation of k-epsilon turbulence models in a two dimensional parallel navier-stokes solver on hybrid grids
Kalkan, Onur Ozan; Tuncer, İsmail Hakkı; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2014)
In this thesis, the popular k-ε turbulence model is implemented on a parallel, 2-dimensional, explicit, density-based, finite volume based Navier-Stokes solver works on hybrid grids, HYP2D. Among the other versions available in the open literature, standard version of the k-ε turbulence mode is studied. Launder-Spalding and Chieng-Launder wall functions are adapted to the turbulence model in order to investigate the effects of the strong gradients in the vicinity of the wall on the turbulence. In order to i...
