A Brauer’s theorem and related results

Rafael Bru, Rafael Cantó, Ricardo Soto, Ana Urbano (2012)

Open Mathematics

Given a square matrix A, a Brauer’s theorem [Brauer A., Limits for the characteristic roots of a matrix. IV. Applications to stochastic matrices, Duke Math. J., 1952, 19(1), 75–91] shows how to modify one single eigenvalue of A via a rank-one perturbation without changing any of the remaining eigenvalues. Older and newer results can be considered in the framework of the above theorem. In this paper, we present its application to stabilization of control systems, including the case when the system...

A Carleman estimates based approach for the stabilization of some locally damped semilinear hyperbolic equations

Louis Tebou (2008)

ESAIM: Control, Optimisation and Calculus of Variations

First, we consider a semilinear hyperbolic equation with a locally distributed damping in a bounded domain. The damping is located on a neighborhood of a suitable portion of the boundary. Using a Carleman estimate [Duyckaerts, Zhang and Zuazua, Ann. Inst. H. Poincaré Anal. Non Linéaire (to appear); Fu, Yong and Zhang, SIAM J. Contr. Opt. 46 (2007) 1578–1614], we prove that the energy of this system decays exponentially to zero as the time variable goes to infinity. Second, relying on another Carleman...

A constructive method for solving stabilization problems

Vadim Azhmyakov (2000)

Discussiones Mathematicae, Differential Inclusions, Control and Optimization

The problem of asymptotic stabilization for a class of differential inclusions is considered. The problem of choosing the Lyapunov functions from the parametric class of polynomials for differential inclusions is reduced to that of searching saddle points of a suitable function. A numerical algorithm is used for this purpose. All the results thus obtained can be extended to cover the discrete systems described by difference inclusions.

A discussion on the Hölder and robust finite-time partial stabilizability of Brockett’s integrator∗

Chaker Jammazi (2012)

ESAIM: Control, Optimisation and Calculus of Variations

We consider chained systems that model various systems of mechanical or biological origin. It is known according to Brockett that this class of systems, which are controllable, is not stabilizable by continuous stationary feedback (i.e. independent of time). Various approaches have been proposed to remedy this problem, especially instationary or discontinuous feedbacks. Here, we look at another stabilization strategy (by continuous stationary or...

A feedforward compensation scheme for perfect decoupling of measurable input functions

Giovanni Marro, Lorenzo Ntogramatzidis (2005)

Kybernetika

In this paper the exact decoupling problem of signals that are accessible for measurement is investigated. Exploiting the tools and the procedures of the geometric approach, the structure of a feedforward compensator is derived that, cascaded to a linear dynamical system and taking the measurable signal as input, provides the control law that solves the decoupling problem and ensures the internal stability of the overall system.

A necessary and sufficient condition for static output feedback stabilizability of linear discrete-time systems

Danica Rosinová, Vojtech Veselý, Vladimír Kučera (2003)

Kybernetika

Necessary and sufficient conditions for a discrete-time system to be stabilizable via static output feedback are established. The conditions include a Riccati equation. An iterative as well as non-iterative LMI based algorithm with guaranteed cost for the computation of output stabilizing feedback gains is proposed and introduces the novel LMI approach to compute the stabilizing output feedback gain matrix. The results provide the discrete- time counterpart to the results by Kučera and De Souza.

A new method to obtain decay rate estimates for dissipative systems with localized damping.

Patrick Martínez (1999)

Revista Matemática Complutense

We consider the wave equation damped with a locally distributed nonlinear dissipation. We improve several earlier results of E. Zuazua and of M. Nakao in two directions: first, using the piecewise multiplier method introduced by K. Liu, we weaken the usual geometrical conditions on the localization of the damping. Then thanks to some new nonlinear integral inequalities, we eliminate the usual assumption on the polynomial growth of the feedback in zero and we show that the energy of the system decays...

A new method to obtain decay rate estimates for dissipative systems

Patrick Martinez (2010)

ESAIM: Control, Optimisation and Calculus of Variations

We consider the wave equation damped with a boundary nonlinear velocity feedback p(u'). Under some geometrical conditions, we prove that the energy of the system decays to zero with an explicit decay rate estimate even if the function ρ has not a polynomial behavior in zero. This work extends some results of Nakao, Haraux, Zuazua and Komornik, who studied the case where the feedback has a polynomial behavior in zero and completes a result of Lasiecka and Tataru. The proof is based on the construction...

A new Nyquist-based technique for tuning robust decentralized controllers

Alena Kozáková, Vojtech Veselý, Jakub Osuský (2009)

Kybernetika

An original Nyquist-based frequency domain robust decentralized controller (DC) design technique for robust stability and guaranteed nominal performance is proposed, applicable for continuous-time uncertain systems described by a set of transfer function matrices. To provide nominal performance, interactions are included in individual design using one selected characteristic locus of the interaction matrix, used to reshape frequency responses of decoupled subsystems; such modified subsystems are...

A reduction principle for global stabilization of nonlinear systems

Rachid Outbib, Gauthier Sallet (1998)

Kybernetika

The goal of this paper is to propose new sufficient conditions for dynamic stabilization of nonlinear systems. More precisely, we present a reduction principle for the stabilization of systems that are obtained by adding integrators. This represents a generalization of the well-known lemma on integrators (see for instance [BYIS] or [Tsi1]).
