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)
This work 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)

This paper presents an improved model for an automotive electronic throttle inspired on the behavior observed in real-time experiments. Due to a number of issues, particularly the return-spring, the performance of the throttle valve depends on whether it is opening or closing. This asymmetric behavior was taken into account to design a mathematical model of(More)
