Switching Control of Drift-Free Systems

H. Michalska The project is concerned with the design of discontinuous feedback controls which involves control elements such as relay, time-delay and zero hold, to stabilize systems of the form [IMAGE ]. The resulting control law is discontinuous but the discontinuities occur in well specified, isolated moments of time, so the resulting closed-loop system does not exhibit chattering. An additional advantage of the designed feedback is that a priori constraints on the controls can be incorporated easily.
