Selected projects

- OTKA NF 104706 (2012-2016) "Analysis and Control of Nonlinear Polynomial Systems Using Optimization Methods": The overall aim of the project is to develop model analysis, identification and controller design methods for nonlinear dynamical systems using the special advantageous algebraic structures of two related system classes with good descriptive power: quasi-polynomial (QP) systems and deterministic kinetic systems. Optimization methods will be used as tools of key importance for the solution of the emerging algebraically complex problems.

- OTKA K 131545 (2019-2024) "Analysis and optimization of complex technological systems with energetic applications": Complex nonlinear electrical energy systems form an important application area of nonlinear systems that often exhibit an underlying network structure. Similar networked nonlinear system models can be found in other important applications, such as biochemical, transportation, gas and water supply systems. Our earlier results about nonnegative polynomial dynamical systems are, therefore, a starting point for this project. The equilibrium structure and the dynamic behavior of the above networked nonlinear system models are largely determined by its network structure together with the dynamics of the nodes in the network. The rich literature on networked systems will be utilized here together with our previous results on investigating the dynamics and distributed control of delayed kinetic systems. The third pillar of our planned work is the area of optimal operation design of electrical energy systems in all level, from the equipment level with battery operation through the level of electrical grids to the level of the electrical energy market, that apply advanced modeling and optimization techniques tailored to the targeted electrical energy system.
