Nonlinear control-affine systems with time-varying vector fields are considered in the paper. We propose a unified control design scheme with oscillating inputs for solving the trajectory tracking and stabilization problems. This methodology is based on the approximation of a gradient like dynamics by trajectories of the designed closed-loop system...

The paper presents a novel family of dynamic extremum seeking controls for nonholonomic systems with output described by a convex function. It is assumed that the vector fields of the system satisfy the controllability rank condition with first‐ and second‐order Lie brackets. The proposed algorithm consists of two components. The first one is the s...

In this article, we consider extremum seeking problems for a general class of nonlinear dynamic control systems. The main result of the article is a broad family of control laws which optimize the steady‐state performance of the system. We prove practical asymptotic stability of the optimal steady‐state and, moreover, propose sufficient conditions...

A class of nonlinear control-affine systems with bounded time-varying drift is considered. It is assumed that the control vector fields together with their iterated Lie brackets satisfy Hormander's condition in a neighborhood of the origin. Then the problem of exponential stabilization is treated by exploiting periodic time-varying feedback control...

This paper deals with the stabilization problem for nonlinear control-affine systems with the use of oscillating feedback controls. We assume that the local controllability around the origin is guaranteed by the rank condition with Lie brackets of length up to 3. This class of systems includes, in particular, mathematical models of rotating rigid b...

The paper deals with the extremum seeking problem for a class of cost functions depending only on a part of state variables of a control system. This problem is related to the concept of partial asymptotic stability and analyzed by Lyapunov's direct method and averaging schemes. Sufficient conditions for the practical partial stability of a system...

The problem of tracking an arbitrary curve in the state space is considered for underactuated driftless control-affine systems. This problem is formulated as the stabilization of a time-varying family of sets associated with a neighborhood of the reference curve. An explicit control design scheme is proposed for the class of controllable systems wh...

A general class of non-commutative maps and one- and two point function evaluation polices are presented to approximate a gradient-descent algorithm, suitable for extremum seeking problems. Moreover, adaptive step size rules are discussed...

In this paper, we consider the problem of extremum seeking in the presence of obstacles. The analytical expression of the cost function as well as locations and shapes of the obstacles are assumed to be partially or completely unknown. We describe a broad family of control algorithms for a unicycle type system, which provides a solution of the abov...

The class of systems under consideration satisfies controllability conditions with iterated Lie brackets up to the second order. The time-varying control strategy is defined explicitly in terms of the grad...

In this paper, we propose and practically evaluate a class of gradient-free control functions ensuring the motion of a unicycle-type system towards the extremum point of a time-varying cost function. We prove that the unicycle is able to track the extremum point, and illustrate our results by numerical simulations and experiments that show that the...

This paper considers the obstacle avoidance problem for control-linear systems satisfying the Hörmander condition with the first-order Lie brackets. To solve the problem under consideration, we use a family of oscillating periodic control functions with state-dependent coefficients. The proposed approach is shown to be applicable for different shap...

This approach allows to solve the obstacle avoidance problem and generate reference trajectories on the state space with obstacles by using the gradient flow of a navigation function. In general, such gradient flow cannot b...

This work addresses the problem of solving distributed optimization problems over directed graphs. Using techniques from geometric control theory, a novel methodology is proposed to design continuous-time distributed algorithms that approximate the solutions to the saddle-point algorithms over directed graphs. Graph-theoretic conditions are establi...

The paper presents a control algorithm that steers a system to an extremum point of a time-varying function. The proposed extremum seeking law depends on values of the cost function only and can be implemented without knowing analytical expression of this function. By extending the Lie brackets approximation method, we prove the local and semi-glob...

In this paper, we describe a broad class of control functions for extremum seeking problems. We show that it unifies and generalizes the existing extremum seeking strategies which are based on Lie bracket approximations, and allows to design new controls with favorable properties in extremum seeking and vibrational stabilization tasks. The second r...

It is assumed that the measure of a set of points in the phase space is increasing along the flow. We prove that an invariant set is an attractor for almost all initial conditions under some extra assumptions. For a system of autonomous ord...

This work addresses the optimal stabilization problem of a nonlinear control system by using a smooth output feedback. The optimality criterion is the maximization of the decay rate of solutions in a neighborhood of the origin. We formulate this criterion as a minimax problem with respect to non-integral functional. An explicit construction of a Ly...
