A novel class of controllers, called resetting virtual absorbers, is proposed as a means for achieving energy dissipation. A general framework for analyzing resetting virtual absorbers is given, and stability of the closed-loop system is analyzed. Special cases of resetting virtual absorbers, called the virtual trap-door absorber and the virtual one-way absorber, are described, and some illustrative examples are given.
