Sliding Mode Control of Uncertain Parameter-Switching Hybrid Systems
In control theory, sliding mode control (SMC) is a nonlinear control method that alters the dynamics of a nonlinear system by application of a discontinuous control signal that forces the system to slide along a cross-section of the system's normal behaviour. In recent years, SMC has been successfully applied to a wide variety of practical engineering systems including robot manipulators, aircraft, underwater vehicles, spacecraft, flexible space structures, electrical motors, power systems, and automotive engines.
Sliding Mode Control of Uncertain Parameter-Switching Hybrid Systems addresses the increasing demand for developing SMC technologies and comprehensively presents the new, state-of-the-art sliding mode control methodologies for uncertain parameter-switching hybrid systems. It establishes a unified framework for SMC of Markovian jump singular systems and proposes new SMC methodologies based on the analysis results. A series of problems are solved with new approaches for analysis and synthesis of switched hybrid systems, including stability analysis and stabilization, dynamic output feedback control, and SMC. A set of newly developed techniques (e.g. average dwell time, piecewise Lyapunov function, parameter-dependent Lyapunov function, cone complementary linearization) are exploited to handle the emerging mathematical/computational challenges.
