The last few years witnessed an increasing interest in the problem of control synthesis of nonlinear systems. A recently derived stability criterion for nonlinear systems which has a remarkable convexity property and the development of numerical methods for verification of positivity allows the computation via semidefinite programming of stabilizing(More)
This paper presents the design of a reliable decentralized state feedback control for a class of uncertain interconnected polytopic continous systems. A model of failures in actuators is adopted which considers outages or partial degradation in independent actuators. The control is developed using the concept of guaranteed cost control and a new LMI(More)
— The paper presents a control strategy for an automotive electronic throttle body, a device largely used into vehicles to increase the efficiency of the combustion engines. The synthesis of the proposed controller is based on a linear matrix inequality (LMI) formulation, which allows us to deal with uncertainties on the measurements of the position of the(More)
The aim of this work is to study the reliable control design problem for uncertain interconnected polytopic systems. A more practical model of actuators or control channels failures than outage is adopted. Based on the linear matrix inequalities (LMI) design approach, a class of reliable decentralized local output feedback controllers is presented.(More)
