Full-text available
We describe an implementation of an electronic feedback controller, destroying synchrony and/or suppressing the mean field in arrays of globally coupled nonidentical oscillators. We demonstrate that the mean field, either artificially nullified or fed back into the array with a negative sign can break up the phase synchronization. The experiments h...

An adaptive feedback technique for stabilizing a priori unknown saddle steady states of dynamical systems is described. The method is based on an unstable low-pass filter combined with a stable low-pass filter. The cutoff frequencies of both filters can be set relatively high. This allows considerable increase in the rate of convergence to the stea...

Full-text available
An adaptive feedback method for tracking and stabilizing unknown and/or slowly varying saddle-type steady states of conservative and weakly damped dissipative dynamical systems is proposed. We demonstrate that a conservative saddle point can be stabilized with neither unstable nor stable filter technique. The proposed controller involves both filte...
Article
A feedback method for stabilizing the steady states in an array of the coupled nonlinear oscillators is described. The method employs two complementary techniques: the pinning control accomplished via a single accidentally accessed (or randomly chosen) oscillator and the repulsive mean field. Analytical, numerical, and experimental results are pres...
Article
Full-text available
Stabilization of the fixed points in globally coupled nonlinear oscillators is described. The method combines two control techniques, (1) the pinning technique implemented via single accidentally accessed or randomly chosen oscillator and (2) the repulsive coupling technique introduced by the inverted mean field in the feedback loop. Analytical, nu...

Full-text available
A technique for stabilizing the steady states in an array of either the star coupled or the all-to-all coupled FitzHugh–Nagumo (FHN) oscillators is described. To control the whole array a single oscillator or a small fraction of the oscillators can be involved. The controller is a four-terminal device and includes an external active nonlinear oscil...

Two control methods for stabilization of the steady states of the globally coupled second-order oscillators via local feedback are described. The first technique is based on the proportional feedback with a constant adjustable reference. The second technique is an adaptive one, employing the first-order stable filter. Three different types of oscil...

A control method for desynchronizing an array of mean-field coupled FitzHugh–Nagumo-type oscillators is described. The technique is based on applying an adjustable DC voltage source to the coupling node. Both, numerical solution of corresponding nonlinear differential equations and hardware experiments with a nonlinear electrical circuit have been...
Article
An array of globally all-to-all coupled FitzHugh-Nagumo–type oscillators is considered. We suggest an adaptive first-order stable filter control feedback technique to stabilize the steady states of the oscillators. The overall system includes separate networks of coupling and control. Therefore, the controller does not depend on the intrinsic param...
Article
A control method for desynchronizing an array of N mean-field coupled modified FitzHugh–Nagumo oscillators is described. The technique is based on filtering the mean field sampled at the coupling node. The first order branched RC filter is composed of N coupling resistors and a single capacitor. The technique can be applied to arrays in a wide rang...
Article
Full-text available
We suggest employing the first-order stable RC filters, based on a single capacitor, for control of unstable fixed points in an array of oscillators. A single capacitor is sufficient to stabilize an entire array, if the oscillators are coupled strongly enough. An array, composed of 24 to 30 mean-field coupled FitzHugh–Nagumo (FHN) type asymmetric o...

Damping of spikes in an array of coupled oscillators by injection of sinusoidal current is studied both electronically and numerically. The effect is investigated using an array consisting of thirty mean-field coupled FitzHugh–Nagumo-type oscillators. The results are considered as a possible mechanism of the deep brain stimulation used to avoid the...

Extremely high 'excess noise ratio' of 80 dB is observed from an avalanche transistor circuit, operating in a random pulse mode. Broadband noise spectrum measured from 30 MHz to 1 GHz exhibits good flatness with the nonuniformity of only +/- 1 dB. Experiments have been performed with the silicon bipolar junction microwave transistors. An analog cir...

An analog circuit, based on a negative impedance converter and a capacitor, for damping oscillations in an array of mean-field coupled neuronal FitzHugh–Nagumo (FHN) type oscillators is described. The circuit is essentially a two-terminal feedback controller. When coupled to an array of the FHN oscillators, it stabilizes their unstable steady state...

A tutorial discussion of negative resistance oscillators based on simple RLC circuits is presented. Two cases are based on parallel RLC circuits and two cases are based on series RLC circuits. Distortion is minimized by introducing symmetry in the movement of the complex pole-pair of the small signal model.

An adaptive feedback method for stabilizing unknown saddle- type steady states of dynamical systems is described. Many other techniques developed so far use unstable linear filters to track and control the saddles. In contrast, the novel controller is an essentially nonlinear unit. It implements the Heaviside step function (piecewise constant funct...

An extremely simple analog technique for desynchronization of neuronal FitzHugh-Nagumo-type oscillators is described. Two-terminal feedback circuit has been developed. The feedback circuit, when coupled to a network of oscillators, nullifies the voltage at the coupling node and thus effectively decouples the individual oscillators. Both numerical s...

An adaptive controller for stabilization of unknown unstable steady states (spirals, nodes and saddles) of nonlinear dynamical systems is considered and its robustness under the changes of the location of the fixed point in the phase space is demonstrated. An analog electronic controller, based on a low-pass filter technique, is described. It can b...

Full-text available
A synergetic control technique for stabilizing a priori unknown saddle steady states of dynamical systems is described. The method involves an unstable filter technique combined with a derivative feedback. The cut-off frequency of the filter is not limited by the damping of the system, and therefore can be set relatively high. This essentially incr...

Depending on the parameters of the nonlinear unit the oscillator operate...
