Putting Energy in Control
Arjan van der Schaft
Prevailing trend in the modeling of complex physical systems is modular modeling, where the
complex physical system is represented as the network interconnection of
ideal components. This has clear advantages in terms of flexibility,
re-usability of model parts, and support for automated modeling.
On the other hand, the equations of motion obtained from direct
network modeling are often complicated and without apparent
structure, and will easily contain algebraic constraints arising from
the interconnection of the sub-systems. As such, they may not be very
suited to analysis and control.
