Abstract

The objective of this paper is to propose an approach to robust stabilization of systems which are composed of linear subsystems coupled by nonlinear time-varying interconnections satisfying quadratic constraints. The proposed algorithms, which are formulated within the convex optimization framework, employ linear dynamic feedback structure involving local Luenberger-type observers. It is also shown how the new methodology can produce improved results if interconnections have linear parts that are known a priori. Examples of output stabilization of inverted pendulums and decentralized control of a platoon of vehicles are used to illustrate the applicability of the design method.
