Non-local stabilization of nonlinear systems using switching manifolds

Banks, SP

McCaffrey, D
The stabilization of nonlinear systems is considered by reducing the problem to a lower dimensional switching manifold which is made globally attracting. The switching manifold is designed using the stable manifold of the unforced system. The technique is first developed in local case and then in the global situation of nonlinear vector fields on manifolds. The method generalizes the standard Lyapunov approach.

The dynamic response of multiple-degree-of-freedom nonlinear structures is usually determined by numerical integration of the equations of motion, an approach which is computationally very expensive for steady-state response analysis of large structures. In this paper, an alternative semianalytical quasilinear method based on the describing function formulation is proposed for the harmonic response analysis of structures with symmetrical nonlinearities. The equations of motion are converted to a set of nonl...
Output feedback stabilization of nonlinear dual-rate sampled-data systems via an approximate discrete-time model
Ustunturk, Ahmet (2012-08-01)
The problem of output feedback stabilization of nonlinear sampled-data control systems is considered under the low measurement rate constraint. A dual-rate control scheme is proposed that utilizes a numerical integration scheme to approximately predict the missing output values between measured output samples. It is shown that if an observer-based output feedback controller that semiglobally practically asymptotically (SPA) stabilizes the single-rate sampled-data plant model is given, then the SPA stability...
Adaptive output feedback control with reduced sensitivity to sensor noise
Kutay, Ali Türker; Hovakimyan, N (2003-01-01)
We address adaptive output feedback control of uncertain nonlinear systems with noisy output measurements, in which both the dynamics and the dimension of the regulated system may be unknown, and only the relative degree of the regulated output is assumed to be known. Given a smooth reference trajectory, the problem is to design a controller that forces the system measurement to track it with bounded errors. A recently developed method proposes the use of a linear error observer that estimates the tracking ...
Linear parameter varying control for autonomous systems: methods and application examples
Çalış, Fatih; Schmidt, Klaus Verner; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2022-8-24)
Linear parameter varying (LPV) systems are nonlinear systems which can be modelled as linear systems whose parameters change as a function of different "scheduling parameters". In other words, the dynamics of the LPV systems change during the operation hence they require a parameter dependent controller. Although classical gain-scheduling approaches satisfy some performance criteria for constant dynamics, they don't guarantee stability while the scheduling parameter is changing. On the other hand, H∞-norm b...
Non-linear filtering based on observations from Gaussian processes
Gustafsson, Fredrik; Saha, Saikat; Orguner, Umut (2011-03-12)
We consider a class of non-linear filtering problems, where the observation model is given by a Gaussian process rather than the common non-linear function of the state and measurement noise. The new observation model can be considered as a generalization of the standard one with correlated measurement noise in both time and space. We propose a particle filter based approach with a measurement update step that requires a memory of past observations which can be truncated using a moving window to obtain a fi...
