In this thesis, digital controller design methods for sampled-data nonlinear systems are considered. Although sampled-data nonlinear control has attracted much attention in recent years, the controller design methods for sampled-data nonlinear systems are still limited. Therefore, a range of controller design methods for sampled-data nonlinear systems are developed such as backstepping, adaptive and robust backstepping, reduced-order observer-based output feedback controller design methods based on the Euler approximate model. These controllers are designed to compensate the effects of the discrepancy between the Euler approximate model and exact discrete time model, parameter estimation error in adaptive control and observer error in output feedback control which behave as disturbance. A dual-rate control scheme is presented for output-feedback stabilization of sampled-data nonlinear systems. It is shown that the designed controllers semiglobally practically asymptotically (SPA) stabilize the closed-loop sampled-data nonlinear system. Moreover, various applications of these methods are given and their performances are analyzed with simulations.
