Fuzzy impulsive control of high order interpolative lowpass sigma delta modulators

By Charlotte Yuk-Fan Ho, Bingo Wing-Kuen Ling and Joshua D. Reiss


In this paper, a fuzzy impulsive control strategy is proposed. The state vectors that the impulsive controller resets to are determined so that the state vectors of interpolative low-pass sigma-delta modulators (SDMs) are bounded within any arbitrary nonempty region no matter what the input step size, the initial condition and the filter parameters are, the occurrence of limit cycle behaviors and the effect of audio clicks are minimized, as well as the state vectors are close to the invariant set if it exists. To work on this problem, first, the local stability criterion and the condition for the occurrence of limit cycle behaviors are derived. Second, based on the derived conditions, as well as a practical consideration based on the boundedness of the state variables and a heuristic measure on the strength of audio clicks, fuzzy membership functions and a fuzzy impulsive control law are formulated. The controlled state vectors are then determined by solving the fuzzy impulsive control law. One of the advantages of the fuzzy impulsive control strategy over the existing linear control strategies is the robustness to the input signal, the initial condition and the filter parameters, and that over the existing nonlinear control strategy are the efficiency and the effectiveness in terms of lower frequency of applying the control force and higher signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) performanc
