Stabilization of Time-Delay Systems - Delay Independent Case
Suppose, for instance, there was a system where a time-delay was introduced. In that instance, stabilization would have to be done in a different manner. The following example demonstrates how one can stabilize such a system independent of the delay.
For this particular problem, suppose that we were given the time-delayed system in the form of:
Then the LMI for determining the Time-Delay System for the Delay-Independent case would be obtained as described below.
In order to obtain the LMI, we need the following 3 matrices: and .
The Optimization ProblemEdit
Suppose - for the time-delayed system given above - we were asked to design a memoryless state-feedback control law where such that the closed-loop system:
is simultaneously both uniform and asymptotically stable, then the system would be stabilized as follows.
The LMI: The Delay-Independent Stabilization of Time-Delay SystemsEdit
From the given pieces of information, it is clear that the optimization problem only has a solution if there exists a matrix and 2 symmetric matrices and that satisfy the following:
Given the resulting feedback gain matrix , it can be observed that the matrix is asymptotically stable while simultaneously ensuring that the solution is delay-independent from the time-delay system where this gain matrix was derived.
