    © 2016 Royal Meteorological Society. We investigate seasonal forecasts of the winter North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) and their relationship with the stratosphere. Climatological frequencies of sudden stratospheric warming ...
  • Second order sliding mode observers for fault reconstruction in power networks 

    Mellucci, C; Menon, Prathyush P.; Edwards, C; Ferrara, A. (Institution of Engineering and Technology, 2017-08-17)
    This paper proposes a 2-sliding mode observer to detect and reconstruct a certain class of load altering faults in a power network. The observer design is based on the recently proposed multivariable super-twisting structure. ...
