Output-feedback tracking in causal nonminimum-phase nonlinear systems using higher-order sliding modes

By Yuri B. Shtessel, Simon Baev, Christopher Edwards and Sarah K. Spurgeon


Metadata only entryAsymptotic output-feedback tracking in a class of causal nonminimum phase uncertain nonlinear systems is addressed via sliding mode techniques. Sliding mode control is proposed for robust stabilization of the output tracking error in the presence of a bounded disturbance. The output reference profile and the unknown input/disturbance are supposed to be described by unknown linear exogenous systems of a given order. Local asymptotic stability of the output tracking error dynamics along with the boundedness of the internal states are proven. The unstable internal states are estimated asymptotically via the proposed multistage observer that is based on the method of extended system center. A higher-order sliding mode observer/differentiator is used for the exact estimation of the input–output states in a finite time. The bounded disturbance is reconstructed asymptotically. A numerical example illustrates the efficiency of the proposed output-feedback tracking approach developed for causal nonminimum phase nonlinear systems
