Iterative learning control design of nonlinear multiple time-delay systems Academic Article uri icon


  • Most available results on iterative learning control address trajectory tracking problem for systems without multiple time-delay. This paper is concerned with iterative learning control design for nonlinear systems with multiple delays, in which external disturbances and output measurement noises are involved. We obtain some new and interesting criteria to guarantee the convergence of the tracking error in the sense of the - norm. It will be shown that the convergence of the system outputs to the desired trajectory is ensured in the absence of disturbances and output measurement noises. In the presence of disturbance and measurement noises, we estimate the upper bound of the tracking error. In order to confirm the validity of the present results, numerical simulation is also presented. 2011 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
