Non-fragile guaranteed cost control of time-delayed uncertain systems
ABSTRACT In this paper, we present a non-fragile guaranteed cost control design method for uncertain systems with time- varying delays in state and control input, even though the controller gain is perturbed. The uncertain nonlinear term in the systems is norm bounded and the linear matrix inequality(LMI) optimization method is employed as a stability analysis of the systems. We design a robust controller and show the asymptotical stability of uncertain time-varying systems based on Lyapunov method. Also, we guarantee a specific level of performance of the systems. The simulations are carried out to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.

ABSTRACT: This paper concerns the nonfragile guaranteed cost control problem for a class of nonlinear dynamic systems with multiple time delays and controller gain perturbations. Guaranteed cost control law is designed under two classes of perturbations, namely, additive form and multiplicative form. The problem is to design a memoryless state feedback control law such that the closed-loop system is asymptotically stable and the closed-loop cost function value is not more than a specified upper bound for all admissible uncertainties. Based on the linear matrix inequality (LMI) approach, some delay-dependent conditions for the existence of such controller are derived. A numerical example is given to illustrate the proposed method.Nonlinear Analysis: Theory, Methods & Applications. 01/2006;

ABSTRACT: We show by examples that optimum and robust controllers, designed by using the H<sub>2</sub>, H<sub>∞</sub>, l<sup>1</sup>, and μ formulations, can produce extremely fragile controllers, in the sense that vanishingly small perturbations of the coefficients of the designed controller destabilize the closed-loop control system. The examples show that this fragility usually manifests itself as extremely poor gain and phase margins of the closed-loop system. The calculations given here should raise a cautionary note and draw attention to the larger issue of controller sensitivity which may be important in other nonoptimal design techniques as wellIEEE Transactions on Automatic Control 09/1997; · 2.72 Impact Factor

ABSTRACT: This article considers non-fragile guaranteed cost control problem for a class of uncertain neutral system with time-varying delays in both state and control input. Delay-dependent criteria are proposed to guarantee the robust stabilization of systems. Linear matrix inequality (LMI) optimization approach is used to solve the non-fragile guaranteed cost control problem. Non-fragile guaranteed cost control for unperturbed neutral system is considered in the first step. Robust non-fragile guaranteed cost control for uncertain neutral system is designed directly from the unperturbed condition. An efficient approach is proposed to design the non-fragile guaranteed cost control for uncertain neutral systems. LMI toolbox of Matlab is used to implement the proposed results. Finally, a numerical example is illustrated to show the usefulness of the proposed results.Chaos, Solitons & Fractals. 01/2007;
