ABSTRACT Nonsmooth Modeling and Simulation for Switched Circuits concerns the modeling and the numerical simulation of switched circuits with the nonsmooth dynamical systems (NSDS) approach, using piecewise-linear and multivalued models of electronic devices like diodes, transistors, switches. Numerous examples (ranging from introductory academic circuits to various types of power converters) are analyzed and many simulation results obtained with the INRIA open-source SICONOS software package are presented. Comparisons with SPICE and hybrid methods demonstrate the power of the NSDS approach. Nonsmooth Modeling and Simulation for Switched Circuits is intended to researchers and engineers in the field of circuits simulation and design, but may also attract applied mathematicians interested by the numerical analysis for nonsmooth dynamical systems, as well as researchers from Systems and Control.

    ABSTRACT: In this work we study the following problem: given a numerical method (an extended $\theta $ θ -method named the $(\theta , \gamma )$ ( θ , γ ) -method), find the class of dissipative linear complementarity systems such that their discrete-time counterpart is still dissipative, with the same storage (energy) function, supply rate (reciprocal variables), and dissipation function. Systems with continuous solutions, and with state jumps are studied. The notion of numerical dissipation is given a rigorous meaning.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we analyze and discuss the well-posedness of two newvariants of the so-called sweeping process, introduced by Moreau in the early 70s (Moreau in Sém Anal Convexe Montpellier, 1971) with motivation in plasticity theory. The first new variant is concerned with the perturbation of the normal cone to the moving convex subset C(t), supposed to have a bounded variation, by a Lipschitz mapping. Under some assumptions on the data, we show that the perturbed differential measure inclusion has one and only one right continuous solution with bounded variation. The second variant, for which a large analysis is made, concerns a first order sweeping process with velocity in the moving set C(t). This class of problems subsumes as a particular case, the evolution variational inequalities [widely used in applied mathematics and unilateral mechanics (Duvaut and Lions in Inequalities in mechanics and physics. Springer, Berlin, 1976]. Assuming that the moving subset C(t) has a continuous variation for every t ∈ [0, T ] with C(0) bounded, we show that the problem has at least a Lipschitz continuous solution. The well-posedness of this class of sweeping process is obtained under the coercivity assumption of the involved operator.We also discuss some applications of the sweeping process to the study of vector hysteresis operators in the elastoplastic model (Krejˇcı in Eur J Appl Math 2:281–292, 1991), to the planning procedure inmathematical economy (Henry in J Math Anal Appl 41:179– 186, 1973 and Cornet in J. Math. Anal. Appl. 96:130–147, 1983), and to nonregular electrical circuits containing nonsmooth electronic devices like diodes (Acary et al. Nonsmooth modeling and simulation for switched circuits. Lecture notes in electrical engineering. Springer, New York 2011). The theoretical results are supported by some numerical simulations to prove the efficiency of the algorithm used in the existence proof.Our methodology is based only on tools from convex analysis. Like other papers in this collection, we show in this presentation how elegant modern convex analysis was influenced by Moreau’s seminal work.
