Simulation of dynamic pinion course using Runge-Kutta's method and impact modeling
Once defined the relationship between the Starter Motor components and their functions, it is possible to develop a mathematical model capable to predict the Starter behavior during operation. One important aspect is the ...
On the solution of mathematical programming problems with equilibrium constraints
Mathematical programming problems with equilibrium constraints (MPEC) are nonlinear programming problems where the constraints have a form that is analogous to first-order optimality conditions of constrained optimization. ...
