Abstract

top
The stabilization with time delay in observation or control represents difficult mathematical challenges in the control of distributed parameter systems. It is well-known that the stability of closed-loop system achieved by some stabilizing output feedback laws may be destroyed by whatever small time delay there exists in observation. In this paper, we are concerned with a particularly interesting case: Boundary output feedback stabilization of a one-dimensional wave equation system for which the boundary observation suffers from an arbitrary long time delay. We use the observer and predictor to solve the problem: The state is estimated in the time span where the observation is available; and the state is predicted in the time interval where the observation is not available. It is shown that the estimator/predictor based state feedback law stabilizes the delay system asymptotically or exponentially, respectively, relying on the initial data being non-smooth or smooth. Numerical simulations are presented to illustrate the effect of the stabilizing controller.
