Quantized/Saturated Control for Sampled-Data Systems Under Noisy Sampling Intervals: A Confluent Vandermonde Matrix Approach Academic Article uri icon


  • 1963-2012 IEEE. In this paper, a unified framework is established to investigate both the quantized and the saturated control problems for a class of sampled-data systems under noisy sampling intervals. A random variable obeying the Erlang distribution is used to describe the noisy sampling intervals. In virtue of the matrix exponential, the sampled-data control system is transformed into an equivalent discrete-time stochastic system, and the aim of this paper is to design a quantized/saturated sampled-data controller such that the resulting discrete-time stochastic system is stochastically stable when the sampling error follows the Erlang distribution. In order to deal with the case of multiple control inputs, a confluent Vandermonde matrix approach is proposed in the design process. By using the Kronecker product operation and the matrix inequality techniques, the desired quantized/saturated controller gains are designed in terms of the solution to certain matrix inequalities. Finally, a simulation example is exploited to verify the effectiveness of the proposed design approach.
