The problem of asymptotic stabilization for a class of nonholonomic systems is studied and solved by means of a hybrid control law which makes use of a (deterministic) finite state machine. It is shown that, by using a simple switching control scheme, the origin is a globally asymptotically stable equilibrium in the sense of Lyapunov. The control law can(More)
The paper deals with the stabilizability of linear plants whose parameters vary with time in a compact set. First, necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of a linear gain-scheduled stabilizing compensator are given. Next, it is shown that, if these conditions are satisfied, any compensator transfer function depending on the plant parameters(More)
— The problem of the asymptotic stabilization of a five dimensional nonholonomic systems, namely the " ball and plate " or " rolling sphere " system, is discussed and solved by means of a hybrid control law relying on a suitable finite state machine. A control law is associated to each state of the machine and, by using a simple switching strategy, the(More)
— In this paper it is shown that the controller design methodology recently introduced by the authors to stabilize non–globally feedback linearizable triangular systems solves the long–standing problem of transient stabilization of multimachine power systems with non-negligible transfer conductances. The 3n–dimensional (aggregated) model of the n-generator(More)
