    This paper studies the problem of designing an H∞ fuzzy feedback control for a class of nonlinear systems described by a continuous-time fuzzy system model under sampled output measurements. The premise variables of the fuzzy system model are allowed to be unavailable. We develop a technique for designing an H∞ fuzzy feedback control that guarantees the L2 gain from an exogenous input to a controlled output is less than or equal to a prescribed value. A design algorithm for constructing the H∞ fuzzy feedback controller is given

    A Convex Cycle-based Degradation Model for Battery Energy Storage Planning and Operation

    A vital aspect in energy storage planning and operation is to accurately model its operational cost, which mainly comes from the battery cell degradation. Battery degradation can be viewed as a complex material fatigue process that based on stress cycles. Rainflow algorithm is a popular way for cycle identification in material fatigue process, and has been extensively used in battery degradation assessment. However, the rainflow algorithm does not have a closed form, which makes the major difficulty to include it in optimization. In this paper, we prove the rainflow cycle-based cost is convex. Convexity enables the proposed degradation model to be incorporated in different battery optimization problems and guarantees the solution quality. We provide a subgradient algorithm to solve the problem. A case study on PJM regulation market demonstrates the effectiveness of the proposed degradation model in maximizing the battery operating profits as well as extending its lifetime
