  author={Daniele Astolfi and Laurent Praly and Lorenzo Marconi and Mines Paristech},
In linear systems theory it’s a well known fact that a regulator given by the cascade of an oscillatory dynamics, driven by some regulated variables, and of a stabiliser stabilising the cascade of the plant and of the oscillators has the ability of blocking on the steady state of the regulated variables any harmonics matched with the ones of the oscillators. This is the well-celebrated internal model principle. In this paper we are interested to follow the same design route for a controlled… Expand

Forwarding-Lyapunov design for the stabilization of coupled ODEs and exponentially stable PDEs
This paper is about the stabilization of a cascade system composed by an infinite-dimensional system, that we suppose to be exponentially stable, and an ordinary differential equation (ODE), that weExpand


Asymptotic Regulation of Minimum Phase Nonlinear Systems Using Output Feedback
We consider a single-input single-output (SISO) nonlinear system which has a well defined normal form with asymptotically stable zero dynamics. We allow the system's equation to depend on boundedExpand
About Robustness of Internal Model-Based Control for Linear and Nonlinear Systems
A topological definition of robustness relative to arbitrary steady state properties is introduced, extending the usual notion of robustity relative to the existence of a steady state in which the regulation error vanishes, and it is shown that only practical regulation can be achieved robustly, while asymptotic regulation is achieved in a quite fragile way.

Francis-Wonham nonlinear viewpoint in output regulation of minimum phase systems
Abstract The paper deals with the problem of output regulation for nonlinear systems under the assumption of periodic exosystem. We build on the results presented in Astolfi et al. (2015) showingExpand
The robust control of a servomechanism problem for linear time-invariant multivariable systems
Necessary and sufficient conditions are found for there to exist a robust controller for a linear, time-invariant, multivariable system (plant) so that asymptotic tracking/regulation occursExpand
Adaptive output regulation for linear systems via discrete-time identifiers
This paper endow the linear regulator with a discrete-time adaptive unit that adapts the regulator’s internal model on the basis of the closed-loop evolution, and casts adaptation here is cast as an identification problem, and the corresponding optimal predictor is designed independently from the underlying control system.

The internal model principle of control theory
The Internal Model Principle is extended to weakly nonlinear systems subjected to step disturbances and reference signals and is shown that, in the frequency domain, the purpose of the internal model is to supply closed loop transmission zeros which cancel the unstable poles of the disturbance andreference signals.

It is shown that for sufficiently smooth signals the output converges to the reference at a rate that depends on the behaviour of the transfer function of the plant on the imaginary axis, and generalize the internal model principle for regular linear systems with disturbances from the boundary and for controllers with unbounded input and output operators.

Asymptotic regulation of minimum phase nonlinear systems using output feedback
This work considers a single-input/single-output (SISO) nonlinear system which has a well-defined normal form with asymptotically stable zero dynamics and designs an output feedback controller which regulates the output to a constant reference. Expand
Semi-global nonlinear output regulation with adaptive internal model
This work presents a classical solution in terms of the parallel connection of a robust stabilizer and an internal model, where the latter is adaptively tuned to the device that reproduces the steady-state control necessary to maintain the output-zeroing condition. Expand
