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)
— 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)

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)
