Robust Control of Uncertain Switched Systems

Robust Control of Uncertain Switched Systems

Abstract: This paper considers the control problem of a class of uncertain switched systems defined on polyhedral sets known as piecewise linear systems where, instead of the conventional Caratheodory solutions, Filippov solutions are studied. In other words, in contrast to the previous studies, solutions with infinite switching in finite time along the facets and on faces […]
