LMIs in Control/Discrete Time/Stability Condition for Discrete-Time TDS

This page describes an LMI for stability analysis of a discrete-time system with a time-varying delay. In particular, a delay-dependent condition is provided to test asymptotic stability of a discrete-delay system through feasibility of an LMI. The system under consideration pertains a single discrete delay, with the extent of the delay at any time bounded by some known value. Solving the LMI for different values of this bound, a limit on the delay can be attained for which the system remains asymptotically stable.

**The System**Edit

The system under consideration is one of the form:

In this description, and are matrices in . The variable denotes a delay in the state at discrete time , assuming a value no greater than some .

**The Data**Edit

To determine stability of the system, the following parameters must be known:

**The Optimization Problem**Edit

Based on the provided data, asymptotic stability can be determined by testing feasibility of the following LMI:

In this notation, the symbols are used to indicate appropriate matrices to assure the overall matrix is symmetric.

**Conclusion:**Edit

If the presented LMI is feasible, the system will be asymptotically stable for any sequence of delays within the interval . That is, independent of the values of the delays at any time:

- For any real number , there exists a real number such that:

Obtaining a feasible point for the LMI, this result can be proven using a Lyapunov-Krasovkii functional:

where:

**Implementation**Edit
