Title: A feedback control strategy for the airfoil system under non-Gaussian colored noise excitation

Abstract

The stability of a binary airfoil with feedback control under stochastic disturbances, a non-Gaussian colored noise, is studied in this paper. First, based on some approximated theories and methods the non-Gaussian colored noise is simplified to an Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process. Furthermore, via the stochastic averaging method and the logarithmic polar transformation, one dimensional diffusion process can be obtained. At last by applying the boundary conditions, the largest Lyapunov exponent which can determine the almost-sure stability of the system and the effective region of control parameters is calculated.

  • A graphical method of evaluating the response of nonlinear time-variant control systems excited by a step input in the presence of a stationary random noise is presented. Descriptions theoretically treat various problems. First, in order to motivate the general procedure an extension of the phase plane method is carried out and the indicial response of nonlinear time-variant control systems under the disturbance-free condition is graphically calculated. Second, the non stationary response of nonlinear time-variant control systems with a random input is evaluated by a manner similar to phase-plane analysis. Evaluation of the indicial response of nonlinear time-variant control systems inmore » the presence of gaussian random disturbance is discussed. The advantage of the procedure is applicability to the calculation of response of nonlinear time- variant control systems with various types of pre-assigned inputs, even in the presence of random disturbance.

  • We study one-dimensional single-humped maps near the boundary crisis at fully developed chaos in the presence of additive weak Gaussian white noise. By means of a new perturbation-like method of the quasi-invariant density is calculated from the invariant density at the crisis in the absence of noise. In the precritical regime, where the deterministic map may show periodic windows, a necessary and sufficient condition for the validity of this method is derived. From the quasi-invariant density we determine the escape rate, which has the form of a scaling law and compares excellently with results from numerical simulations. We find thatmore » deterministic transient chaos is stabilized by weak noise whenever the maximum of the map is of order z>1. Finally, we extend our method to more general maps near a boundary crisis and to multiplicative as well as colored weak Gaussian noise. Within this extended class of noises and for single-humped maps with any fixed order z>0 of the maximum, in the scaling law for the escape rate both the critical exponents and the scaling function are universal.« less
  • Herein we present a calculation of the mean first-passage time for a bistable one-dimensional system driven by Gaussian colored noise of strength D and correlation time tau/sub c/. We obtain quantitative agreement with experimental analog-computer simulations of this system. We disagree with some of the conclusions reached by previous investigators. In particular, we demonstrate that all available approximations that lead to a state-dependent diffusion coefficient lead to the same result for small Dtau/sub c/.
  • We develop a singular perturbation approach to the problem of first-passage times for non-Markovian processes driven by Gaussian colored noise near the white-noise limit. In particular we treat the problem of overdamped tunneling in a bistable quartic potential in the presence of Gaussian noise of short correlation time tau. The correct treatment of the absorbing boundary yields a lowest-order correction proportional to tau/sup 1/2/ with a proportionality constant involving the Milne extrapolation length for the Fokker-Planck equation, given in terms of the Riemann zeta function.
  • It is shown that the Fokker-Planck operator can be derived via a projection-perturbation approach, using the repartition of a more detailed operator L into a perturbation L/sub 1/ and an unperturbed part L/sub 0/. The standard Fokker-Planck structure is recovered at the second order in L/sub 1/, whereas the perturbation terms of higher order are shown to provoke the breakdown of this structure. To get rid of these higher order terms, a key approximation, local linearization (LL), is made. In general, to evaluate at the second order in L/sub 1/ the exact expression of the diffusion coefficient which simulates themore » influence of a Gaussian noise with a finite correlation time /tau/, a resummation up to infinite order in /tau/ must be carried out, leading to what other authors call the best Fokker-Planck approximation (BFPA). It is shown that, due to the role of terms of higher order in L/sub 1/, the BFPA leads to predictions on the equilibrium distributions that are reliable only up to the first order in /tau/. The LL, on the contrary, in addition to making the influence of terms of higher order in L/sub 1/ vanish, results in a simple analytical expression for the term of second order that is formally coincident with the complete resummation over all the orders in /tau/ provided by the Fox theory. The corresponding diffusion coefficient in turn is shown to lead in the limiting case /tau/ ..-->.. infinity to exact results for the steady-state distributions. Therefore, over the whole range 0 less than or equal to /tau/ less than or equal to infinity the LL turns out to be an approximation much more accurate than the global linearization proposed by other authors for the same purpose of making the terms of higher order in L/sub 1/ vanish. In the short-/tau/ region the LL leads to results virtually coincident with those of the BFPA. In the large-/tau/ region the LL is a more accurate approximation than the BFPA itself.« less
