An anti-windup design for polytopic systems by a parameter-dependent Lyapunov function approach

Yong-Yan Cao; Zongli Lin 2005 International Conference on Control and Automation, 2005

This paper presents an anti-windup compensation design for polytopic systems. A parameter-dependent Lyapunov function approach is first proposed to reduce the conservatism in estimating the performance of the closed-loop system under a given anti-windup design. An iterative algorithm is then proposed to design the anti-windup compensation gain. Numerical examples demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed design approach.

  • Control System Synthesis by Root Locus Method

    The root locus method determines all of the roots of the differential equation of a control system by a graphical plot which readily permits synthesis for desired transient response or frequency response. The base points for this plot on the complex plane are the zeros and poles of the open loop transfer function, which are readily available. The locus of roots is a plot of the values of a which make this transfer function equal to  -  1 as loop gain is increased from zero to infinity. The plot can be established in approximate form by inspection and the significant parts of the locus calculated accurately and quickly by use of a simple device. For multiple loop systems, one solves the innermost loop first, which then permits the next loop to be solved by another root locus plot. The resultant plot gives a complete picture of the system, which is particularly valuable for unusual systems or those which have wide variations in parameters.

  • On the InputOutput Stability of TimeVarying Nonlinear Feedback Systems

    The object of this paper is to outline a stability theory for input-output problems using functional methods. More particularly, the aim is to derive open loop conditions for the boundedness and continuity of feedback systems, without, at the beginning, placing restrictions on linearity or time invariance. It will be recalled that, in the special case of a linear time invariant feedback system, stability can be assessed using Nyquist's criterion; roughly speaking, stability depends on the amounts by which signals are amplified and delayed in flowing around the loop. An attempt is made here to show that similar considerations govern the behavior of feedback systems in general - that stability of nonlinear time-varying feedback systems can often be assessed from certain gross features of input-output behavior, which are related to amplification and delay. This paper is divided into two parts: Part I contains general theorems, free of restrictions on linearity or time invariance; Part II, which will appear in a later issue, contains applications to a loop with one nonlinear element. There are three main results in Part I, which follow the introduction of concepts of gain, conicity, positivity, and strong positivity: THEOREM 1: If the open loop gain is less than one, then the closed loop is bounded. THEOREM 2: If the open loop can be factored into two, suitably proportioned, conic relations, then the closed loop is bounded. THEOREM 3: If the open loop can be factored into two positive relations, one of which is strongly positive and has finite gain, then the closed loop is bounded. Results analogous to Theorems 1-3, but with boundedness replaced by continuity, are also obtained.

  • Regeneration Theory

    Regeneration or feed-back is or considerable importance in many applications of vacuum tubes. The most obvious example is that of vacuum tube oscillators, where the feed-back is carried beyond the singing point. Another application is the 21-circuit test of balance, in which the current due to the unbalance between two impedances is fed back, the gain being increased until singing occurs. Still other applications are cases where portions of the output current of amp1ifiers are fed back to the input either unintentionally or by design. For the purpose of investigating the stability of such devices they may be looked on as amplifiers whose output is connected to the input through a transducer. This paper deals with the theory of stability of such systems.
