    This article aims to provide an overview of the modeling and control of heavy-haul trains from an energy efficiency viewpoint. For this purpose, a unifying classification of energy efficiency in terms of performance, operation, equipment, and technology (POET) is presented and then applied to heavy-haul train control problems. A heavy-haul train is an energy system, and its cruise control can be v... View full abstract»

    This article provides an overview of the circle criterion and its connection with ISS. Classical absolute stability theory and the circle criterion in particular, is concerned with the analysis of a feedback interconnection of Lure type, which consists of a linear system in the forward path and a sector-bounded nonlinearity in the negative feedback path. Classical absolute stability results are re... View full abstract»

    Nonminimum-phase zeros, that is, closed-right-half-plane (CRHP) zeros, affect both the open-and closed-loop behavior of continuous-time linear systems in undesirable ways [1]. For example, an asymptotically stable linear system with an odd number of positive zeros experiences initial undershoot to a step input (see “Initial Undershoot”). Moreover, under the rules of root locus, zeros... View full abstract»
