The H2 norm of a stable system H is the root-mean-square of the impulse response of the system. The H2 norm measures the steady-state covariance (or power) of the output response to unit noise input. In this module, the goal of H_{2} optimal state estimation is to design an observer that minimizes the H_{2} norm of the closed loop transfer matrix

**The System**Edit

Consider the continuous-time generalized plant * P* with state-space realization

where it is assumed that (A,C_{2}) is detectable. An observer of the form

**The Data**Edit

respectively

**A, B**are the system coefficient matrices of_{1}, B_{2}, C_{1}, C_{2}, D_{1}, and D_{2}

**The Optimization Problem**Edit

Given the system and a positive scalar * * we have to find the matrix L such that

|| ||_{2} < ** **

An observer of the form

is to be designed, where L is the observer gain.

Defining the error state as ** **

The break dynamics are found to be

For the system we introduce a full state observer in the following form:

are the observation vector and the observer gain.

The transfer function for this case is

and thus the problem of state observer design is to find L such that

** The LMI: LMI for H**_{2} Observer estimationEdit

_{2}Observer estimation

The H_{2} state observer problem has a solution if and only if there exists a matrix ** **, a symmetric matrix ** ** and a symmetric matrix ** ** such that

and from the solution of the above LMIs we can obtain the observer matrix as

**Conclusion**Edit

Thus by formulation, we have converted the problem of H_{2} state observer design into an LMI feasibility problem by optimizing the above LMIs. In application we are often concerned with the problem of finding the minimal attenuation level ** **

On implementation and optimization of the above LMI using YALMIP and MOSEK (or) SeDuMi we get 3 matrices as output, and also which is used to calculate which is the H_{2} norm of the system.

There exists another set of LMIs which holds true for the same optimization problem as above.

When a minimal ** ** is obtained, the minimal attenuation level is
