Abstract

Recent years have witnessed an enormous growth of interest in dynamic systems that are characterised by a mixture of both continuous and discrete dynamics, commonly referred to as hybrid or switching systems. Nevertheless, there is a notable lack of suitable benchmark problems on which to assess and compare competing analysis and design methods. The present paper provides a collection of detailed benchmark design and analysis tasks which, while somewhat simplified in nature, reflect the scale and complexity of the tasks encountered in at least one important application domain, namely wind turbine regulation.
