Robust switched filtering for time-varying polytopic uncertain systems

Publication Date



This paper studies the problem of designing robust switched filters for time-varying polytopic uncertain systems. The synthesis conditions for a set of filters under a min-switching rule are derived to guarantee globally asymptotical stability with optimized robust H∞ performance. Specifically, the conditions are expressed as bilinear matrix inequalities (BMIs) and can be solved by linear matrix inequality (LMI) optimization techniques. The proposed approach utilizes a piecewise quadratic Lyapunov function to reduce the conservativeness of robust filtering methods based on single Lyapunov function, thus better H∞ performance can be achieved. Both continuous and discrete-time robust filter designs are considered. To simplify filter implementation, a method to remove redundancy in min-switching filter members is also introduced. The advantages of the proposed robust switching filters are illustrated by several examples. © 2013 by ASME.
