Observer design for nonlinear discrete-time systems: Immersion and dynamic observer error linearization techniques

INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF ROBUST AND NONLINEAR CONTROL, Issue 5 2010
Jian Zhang
Abstract This paper focuses on the observer design for nonlinear discrete-time systems by means of nonlinear observer canonical form. At first, sufficient and necessary conditions are obtained for a class of autonomous nonlinear discrete-time systems to be immersible into higher dimensional observer canonical form. Then a method called dynamic observer error linearization is developed. By introducing a dynamic auxiliary system, the augmented system is shown to be locally equivalent to the generalized observer form, whose nonlinear terms contain auxiliary states and output of the system. A constructive algorithm is also provided to obtain the state coordinate transformation. These results are an extension of their counterparts of nonlinear continuous-time systems to nonlinear discrete-time systems (Syst. Control Lett. 1986; 7:133,142; SIAM. J.

On stabilization of nonlinear systems under data rate constraints using output measurements

INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF ROBUST AND NONLINEAR CONTROL, Issue 6 2006
C. De Persis
Abstract We present a contribution to the problem of semi-global asymptotic stabilization of nonlinear continuous-time systems under data rate constraints when only output measurements are available. We consider systems which are uniformly observable and we point out that the design of an ,embedded-observer' decoder and a controller which semi-globally stabilize this class of systems under data-rate constraints requires an appropriate choice of the observer gain and the data rate.

Fault detection in nonlinear continuous-time systems with uncertain parameters

AICHE JOURNAL, Issue 9 2008
Youdong Lin
Abstract In model-based fault diagnosis for dynamic systems with uncertain parameters, an envelope of all fault-free behaviors can be determined from the model and used as a reference for detecting faults. We demonstrate here a method for generating an envelope that is rigorously guaranteed to be complete, but without significant overestimation. The method is based on an interval approach, but uses Taylor models to reduce the overestimation often associated with interval methods. To speed fault detection, a method that uses bounded-error measurement data and a constraint propagation procedure is proposed for shrinking the envelope. Several fault detection scenarios involving nonlinear, continuous-time systems are used to evaluate this approach. 2008 American Institute of Chemical Engineers AIChE J, 2008 [source]


Observers for a class of nonlinear systems with time-delay,

ASIAN JOURNAL OF CONTROL, Issue 6 2009
Lei Zhou
Abstract In this paper, the issue of observer designs for a class of nonlinear continuous-time systems with time-delay is addressed, where the nonlinear function is not necessarily Lipschitz. It is shown that both full-order and reduced-order observers can be obtained by means of the same linear matrix inequality. A numerical example is presented to show the effectiveness of the proposed approach. Copyright 2009 John Wiley and Sons Asia Pte Ltd and Chinese Automatic Control Society [source]
