  1. In this paper we design a hybrid predictive controller for the tracking of a sinusoidal reference signal. The stability and forward invariance of a set of points around the reference state, named the tracking ellipse, is established by using tools for hybrid dynamical systems. Moreover, prediction of solutions for a finite number of switching events is used to minimize the number of switches. The control algorithm is shown to be robust to small perturbations and input disturbances. Simulations illustrating the main results are included.

  3. Proponents of AC-powered data centers have implicitly assumed that the electrical load presented to all three phases of an AC data center are balanced. To assure this, servers are connected to the AC power phases to present identical loads, assuming an uniform expected utilization level for each server. We present an experimental study that demonstrates that with the inevitable temporal changes in server workloads or with dynamic sever capacity management based on known daily load patterns, balanced electrical loading across all power phases cannot be maintained. Such imbalances introduce a reactive power component that represents an effective power loss and brings down the overall energy efficiency of the data center, thereby resulting in a handicap against DC-powered data centers where such a loss is absent.
