Discrete Adjoint Sensitivity Analysis of Hybrid Dynamical Systems With Switching [Discrete Adjoint Sensitivity Analysis of Hybrid Dynamical Systems]
Sensitivity analysis is an important tool for describing power system dynamic behavior in response to parameter variations. It is a central component in preventive and corrective control applications. The existing approaches for sensitivity calculations, namely, finitedifference and forward sensitivity analysis, require a computational effort that increases linearly with the number of sensitivity parameters. In this paper, we investigate, implement, and test a discrete adjoint sensitivity approach whose computational effort is effectively independent of the number of sensitivity parameters. The proposed approach is highly efficient for calculating sensitivities of larger systems and is consistent, within machine precision, with the function whosemore »Cited by 1 
Transition between secondorder and firstorder systems within the context of the inverse problem of Newtonian mechanics
In this paper the mechanism of transition between secondorder and firstorder ordinary differential equations is studied within the context of the inverse problem of Newtonian mechanics. A precise definition is introduced for a direct correspondence between secondorder and firstorder systems. Under the restrictions of this definition, it is shown that for a given secondorder system, prescriptions of new variables can be found, making the equivalent firstorder system derivable from a variational principle, if and only if the given system is of Lagrangian type. The prescriptions in question enlarge the conventional Legendre transform to include transitions to generalized Hamiltonian equations ofmore » 
Assessment of chemical fate in the environment using evaluative, regional and localscale models: Illustrative application to chlorobenzene and linear alkylbenzene sulfonates
Evaluation of chemical fate in the environment has been suggested to be best accomplished using a fivestage process in which a sequence of increasing sitespecific multimedia mass balance models is applied. This approach is illustrated for chlorobenzene and linear alkylbenzene sulfonates (LAS). The first two stages involve classifying the chemical and quantifying the emissions into each environmental compartment. In the third stage, the characteristics of the chemical are determined using the evaluative equilibrium criterion model, which is capable of treating a variety of chemicals including those that are in volatile and insoluble in water. This evaluation is conducted in threemore » 
Capacitor placement and real time control in largescale unbalanced distribution systems: Loss reduction formula, problem formulation, solution methodology and mathematical justification
A comprehensive study of capacitor placements and realtime control in general unbalanced distribution systems is undertaken. New developments in a loss reduction formula, problem formulations, solution methodology and mathematical justification are presented. The problem is decoupled into two subproblems: the capacitor placement subproblem and the realtime control subproblem. An effective solution algorithm for placing capacitors and determining their realtime control schemes for general unbalanced distribution systems is proposed. To meet the need for efficient implementation in realtime environments, a fast pseudo gradient type mechanism for deriving capacitor control settings is incorporated into the solution algorithms. A quadratic integer programming basedmore »
