Finding a stable solution of a system of nonlinear equations arising from dynamic systems

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • In this paper, we present a new approach for finding a stable solution of a system of nonlinear equations arising from dynamical systems. We introduce the concept of stability functions and use this idea to construct stability solution models of several typical small signal stability problems in dynamical systems. Each model consists of a system of constrained semismooth equations. The advantage of the new models is twofold. Firstly, the stability requirement of dynamical systems is controlled by nonlinear inequalities. Secondly, the semismoothness property of the stability functions makes the models solvable by efficient numerical methods. We introduce smoothing functions for the stability functions and present a smoothing Newton method for solving the problems. Global and local quadratic convergence of the algorithm is established. Numerical examples from dynamical systems are also given to illustrate the efficiency of the new approach.
