Abstract

In this paper, we further generalize the definition of the extended zero dynamics to finite-dimensional continuous-time MIMO LTI systems with additive disturbances; and then introduce the concept of minimum phase for this class of systems. We show that the extended zero dynamics is invariant under the application of dynamic extension to its input, and therefore, a minimum phase system remains minimum phase after a finite number of steps of dynamic extension. We further introduce the extended zero dynamics canonical form for square MIMO LTI systems with uniform vector relative degree. We prove that a system is minimum phase according to our definition if its zero dynamics is asymptotically stable. The converse of the statement holds if the system is stabilizable from the control input. The objective of this research is to solve the model reference robust adaptive control problem for finite-dimensional continuous-time square MIMO LTI systems that is minimum phase according to the generalized definition using an appropriately vectorized version of Pan and Basar (2000), and results here constitute important building blocks. In a subsequent paper, Basar and Pan (2019), we further connect the dots: starting with a square MIMO LTI system that is minimum phase with respect to admissible initial conditions and admissible disturbance waveforms, we must obtain a true system representation that admits both the extended zero dynamics canonical form representation and the strict observer canonical form representation. Toward this end, we need to be able to extend the given system to one with uniform vector relative degree and with uniform observability indices without changing its minimum phase property, and this has been done in Basar and Pan (2019), fully resolving this issue.
