    To  solve  the  cooperative control problem of the engine and generator in APU system,the speed switching-power  following  APU  cooperative control strategy was proposed  herein.Firstly,the power-speed  switching table  of  the engine was designed  according to  the optimal brake specific fuel consumption(BSFC)  curve.Then,a  second order sliding mode controller of the engine speed was designed,which was based on the engine mean value model.Meanwhile,the PWM rectifier output power  controller  was  designed,which was based  on  the  direct  power  control  algorithm.Through the closed-loop control of the engine speed and PWM rectifier power,the proposed control strategy forced the engine to  run along the optimal BSFC curve.Finally,the joint simulation model   was  developed based on AVL Cruise and MATLAB/Simulink.The simulation results show that the proposed APU cooperative control strategy is excellent  in  aspects of power following and speed controlling accuracy,battery voltage,current  and state of charge(SOC) fluctuations,as well as the operating points distributions.

    A piezoelectric generator based on the piezoelectric stack electro-mechanical energy conversion was proposed. The electro-mechanical coupling model of the generator and the relationship between the deduced voltage and the exciting force of the stack were deduced based on the piezoelectric vibration theory and one-dimensional wave theory. The effects on the power performance of piezoelectric stack physical parameters, such as the amplitude and frequency of the force, the mass and the stiffness of the mechanical system were studied. The research results show that the bigger the force, the larger the power ability, and when the frequency of the exciting force is according with the resonant frequency of the generator, the power ability of the generator is maximum. And if the length and area of the piezoelectric stack is suitable for the resonant frequency of the generator, the power ability is maximum. Moreover, if the load impedance matches the equivalent impedance of the generator, the electro-mechanical energy conversion efficiency of the generator is maximum.

    An eight-degree-of-freedom time domain mathematical model was used to simulate moored crane ship dynamics numerically. This model considered large-amplitude load swing of the hull, hydrodynamic memory effects, nonlinear drag forces acting on the hull, wave forces, and nonlinear restoring force characteristics of a mooring system. The dynamics of a crane ship was investigated for two different external excitations: the idealized case of purely harmonics pitching motion of the ship and force acting on the hull due to incoming regular waves. The results indicate that the large resonant oscillations may occur if the wave frequency approaches one of the system’s eigenfrequencies. The load swing angle range is obviously affected by nonlinearity of the restoring force of the mooring system.

    Based on acceleration/deceleration curves and control scheme,the operation smoothness and noise of stepping motor were analyzed and studied.According to the relation between angular acceleration and angular velocity (a-ω equation),the S-type,e/e-type and Cos-type acceleration/deceleration curves were constructed respectively,in which the flexible impact can be avoided.Then,the control scheme of stepping motor was optimized, including that the smoothness of stepping motor's speed transition was improved,that the controller's calculation speed was enhanced because of calculation's simplification by iterative algorithm,and that storage resources were saved through real-time calculation.The noise experimental results show that compared with the traditional drive scheme,the stepping motor system,which adopts Cos-type acceleration/deceleration curve and real-time control scheme,operates smoothly and has lesser noise during startup process.

    A parametrical uncertainty analysis of flexible multibody systems was presented. The deformations of flexible parts were modeled using ANCF. Polynomial chaos methods were employed to solve ANCF-based flexible multibody systems with random variables. Theoretical analysis and numerical examples were made to compare the accuracy and efficiency of polynomial chaos methods and Monte Carlo simulation method. Results show that polynomial chaos methods are more effective than Monte Carlo simulation to achieve the same accuracy in solving complex flexible multibody systems. 

    The heave motion of supporting ship affects the launching
    and recovering of remotely operated vehicle(ROV).Active compensation control of hydraulic winch was used to improve the launching and recovering safety of ROV by reducing the heave speed of tether management system (TMS). The model of hydraulic winch was built and active heave compensation feedforward control was set up. Active heave compensation tests of ROV indicate that non-linearity of hydraulic winch decreases the efficiency of active heave compensation. Hydraulic winch active heave compensation predictive control was designed. Simulation test shows that hydraulic winch active compensation predictive control with parameters identification of hydraulic system improves the efficiency of heave compensation.

    Manson-Coffin model of low cycle fatigue is a classical empirical formula, and its mechanical implications are very pool. Based on damage mechanics and Ramberg-Osgood rule, a damage mechanics model of low cycle fatigue was deduced under the dominate variable of plastic strain amplitude. By the comparison with Manson-Coffin model, it is shown that they are equivalent under proportional loading and Manson-Coffin model is a special degenerative form of damage mechanics fatigue model.
