J. Comput. Nonlinear Dynam 12(4), 041005 (Jan 20, 2017) (6 pages) Paper No: CND-16-1198; doi: 10.1115/1.4034997 History: Received April 18, 2016; Revised October 07, 2016

This paper describes the stabilization of a fractional-order nonlinear brushless DC motor (BLDCM) with the Caputo derivative. Based on the Laplace transform, a Mittag-Leffler function, Jordan decomposition, and Grönwall's inequality, sufficient conditions are proposed that ensure the local stabilization of a BLDCM as fractional-order α: 0<α1 is proposed. Then, numerical simulations are presented to show the feasibility and validity of the designed method. The proposed scheme is simpler and easier to implement than previous schemes.
