  • The aim of this thesis is to develop a novel design of passivity-based control for nonlinear Port Hamiltonian Systems with implicit definition of the Hamiltonian function. The first objective is to characterize this class in terms of physical models, in particular the relation with the Port Hamiltonian formulation of mechanical systems with constraints, Thermodynamic systems defined on the Thermodynamic Phase Space. Furthermore its various coordinate representations will be detailed, the index of the constraints and the projection to an explicit representation will be investigated. Finally its system-theoretic properties such as passivity, cyclo-passivity, observabiliuty and controllability will be analyzed.

    The second objective is to develop and generalize the control design techniques such as the Control by Interconnection (CbI), Interconnection & Damping Assignment Passivity-Based Control (IDA-PBC) to these systems in order to shape in closed-loop their properties in terms of structure, dissipation and energy.

    The third objective is to consider the structure preserving, model order reduction techniques in the light of these Port Hamiltonian Systems with implicit definition of the Hamiltonian and consider singular perturbation techniques.
