Reduced-order implementation of disturbance observers for robust tracking of nonlinear systems
J. Back and H. Shim

http://dx.doi.org/10.1049/iet-cta.2013.1036
  In order to make the disturbance observer theory be an off-the-shelf technique for robust control, we’ve rendered it as simple as possible.

A study of disturbance observers with unknown relative degree of the plant
N.H. Jo, Y. Joo, and H. Shim
Automatica, vol. 50, pp. 1730-1734, 2014
http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.automatica.2014.04.015
  Previous results require the knowledge of relative degree of the uncertain plant, which motivated the study of unknown relative degree case. Analysis newly introduces the Newton diagram (which is a foundation of higher-order root locus), which however yields a (negative) result that underscores the importance of relative degree estimation. A constructive design is also presented when the uncertainty of the relative degree is small, though.

Robust tracking and vibration suppression for a two-inertia system by combining backstepping approach with disturbance observer
J.S. Bang, H. Shim, S.K. Park, and J.H. Seo
IEEE Trans. on Industrial Electronics, vol. 57, no. 9, pp. 3197-3206, 2010
http://dx.doi.org/10.1109/TIE.2009.2038398
  Flexible robot arms (or, two-inertia systems) unfortunately do not satisfy the standing assumption for disturbance observers. This paper shows how to overcome this problem by combining the backstepping design, with experiment results.

Disturbance observer for non-minimum phase linear systems
N.H. Jo, H. Shim, and Y.I. Son
Int. J. of Control, Automation, and Systems, vol. 8, no. 5, pp. 994-1002, Oct., 2010
http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/s12555-010-0508-x
  When the plant is a non-minimum phase system, application of disturbance observer technique is limited. We try to overcome this by introducing a new structure and by using the H_inf design, but this problem still remains open to our satisfaction.

An inner-loop controller guaranteeing robust transient performance for uncertain MIMO nonlinear systems
J. Back and H. Shim
IEEE Trans. on Automatic Control, vol. 54, no. 7, pp. 1601-1607, 2009
http://dx.doi.org/10.1109/TAC.2009.2017962
  MIMO extension to SISO case was not straightforward because of the uncertain input gain matrix, which was our motivation of study.

An almost necessary and sufficient condition for robust stability of closed-loop systems with disturbance observer
H. Shim and N.H. Jo
Automatica, vol. 45, no. 1, pp. 296-299, 2009
http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.automatica.2008.10.009
  New finding: The same robust stability condition as [Back and Shim 2008, AUT] can be obtained just in Laplace domain, not relying on singular perturbation in the state-space.

Adding robustness to nominal output feedback controllers for uncertain nonlinear systems: A nonlinear version of disturbance observer
J. Back and H. Shim
Automatica, vol. 44, no. 10, pp. 2528-2537, 2008
http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.automatica.2008.02.024
  (i) Robust transient response in time domain (of course, as well as robust stability) can be obtained with disturbance observer, (ii) a new robust condition is derived which is almost necessary and sufficient when the bandwidth of the Q-filter is sufficiently large, and a design method for the Q-filter is proposed, and (iii) the disturbance observer technique is extended to nonlinear systems. Overall, the message is “disturbance observer is not just an estimator, but is a robust control method”. It is a simple addition to any nominal feedback controller, which is another benefit.

  Disturbance observer approximately cancels the disturbances. Then, how to cancel them exactly when the model generating them is known? Answer: Use internal model principle. Then, where to put the internal model within the disturbance observer configuration? The paper answers this question, and also presents how to guarantee robust stability with the internal model.

B. Synchronization and Consensus

Consensus of output-coupled linear multi-agent systems under fast switching network: Averaging approach

  What if the switching network is never connected? Even in this case, if the switching is fast, and its average (in some sense) is connected, then its net effect may be the same as a connected graph. It does not just yield approximate consensus, but leads to exact consensus.

Output feedback consensus for high order linear systems having uniform ranks under switching topology

http://dx.doi.org/10.1049/iet-cta.2011.0197
  Unlike [Seo et al. 2009, AUT] where the low gain approach is employed so that the convergence rate might be slow, we can apply high gain when the agents do not have zero dynamics.

Disc margins of the discrete-time LQR and its application to consensus problem
J. Lee, J.S. Kim, and H. Shim
Int. J. of Systems Science, vol. 43, no. 10, pp. 1891-1900, 2012
http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/00207721.2011.555012
  Although there are a few studies on the gain/phase margin of the discrete-time LQR controllers, the disc margin (a combination of gain and phase margins expressed as complex numbers) is studied which leads to less conservative bounds. This margin helps to design a consensus controller for discrete-time case.

A constrained consensus problem using MPC

Output consensus of heterogeneous uncertain linear multi-agent systems

http://dx.doi.org/10.1109/TAC.2010.2088710
  Consensus among heterogeneous agents is of great interest because it is often the case in real world. But, at the same time, it is easily seen that the (state) consensus is not possible simply because the dynamic properties might be all different among the agents. Instead, we may ask “output” consensus with a certain internal model that is the same across the agents. For this, we embed the internal model in the (output feedback) consensus controller.

Reduced-order consensus controllers for output-coupled SISO linear systems
J.H. Seo, H. Shim, J. Back
Int. J. of Control, Automation, and Systems, vol. 8, no. 6, pp. 1356-1363, Dec. 2010
http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/s12555-010-0623-8
  While [Seo et al. 2009, AUT] gives an answer to general consensus problem, it requires the same order of consensus controller as the agent. But, when a particular case where the agreed trajectory is of order one or two, it is shown that the order of consensus controller can be of order one or two, respectively. It also presents a correction of Corollary 2 of [Seo et al. 2009, AUT].

Consensus of high-order linear systems using dynamic output feedback compensator: Low gain approach
J.H. Seo, H. Shim, and J. Back
Automatica, vol. 45, no. 11, pp. 2656-2664, 2009
http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.automatica.2009.07.022
  This may be one of the earliest results dealing with the consensus problem for general order of LTI agents. Since the consensus problem is converted into a robust control problem of single agent, the low gain feedback turns out to be helpful. The error in Corollary 2 has been fixed in Theorem 1 of [Seo et al. 2010, IJCAS].

  Unlike [Kim et al. 2011, TAC] where the internal model is introduced for exact consensus, we do not embed the internal model assuming that we are satisfied with approximate consensus. A framework for this is pursued, leading to the notion of averaged system and strong couplings. Moreover, this paper answers the question: “How to make the consensus robust?” Answer: it becomes more robust as the coupling becomes stronger and as the number of agents gets larger. (The former is expected but the latter is somehow new.)

 Making a multi-agent system (MAS) put in a desired formation by external inputs requires a certain property, and for this the previous results ask ‘controllability’ of MAS. However, controllability of MAS often ends up with counter-intuitive conclusions. Motivated by this, we claim that ‘stabilizability’ is more suitable for MAS.

 Under a switching network, consensus can still be achieved even if the network is not always connected. Simply by utilizing the average dwell time notion, consensus is achieved if the time of being connected is larger than the time of disconnection in some sense.

  The observer construction of [Tanwani et al. 2013, TAC] relies on the linearity of the system; that is, the partial information gained at each mode can be easily transported to another time simply by multiplying the state transition matrix. For nonlinear systems, this is not possible and we have to devise another idea.

Observability for switched linear systems: Characterization and observer design

Erratum: See the comments in this file.
  If a switched system is not observable at any mode, can we estimate the states (assuming that the switching signal is known)? Answer is positive if the observability is gained by switching, while it takes some time until the system becomes observable. If so, can we design an asymptotic observer? This paper illustrates a construction of such an observer, which differs from the conventional approaches where the switching effect is treated as a perturbation.

Recursive observer design beyond the uniform observability

http://dx.doi.org/10.1109/TAC.2002.808485
  A recursive design method for a nonlinear observer is proposed, which may be thought as an ‘observer backstepping’ (not ‘backstepping with observer’). Compared to another observer backstepping in the literature, the design begins with the farthest integrator from the output and proceeds to the output, and the error convergence is not local.

Nonlinear observer design via passivation of error dynamics
H. Shim, J.H. Seo and A.R. Teel
Automatica, vol. 39, no. 5, pp. 885-892, 2003
http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/S0005-1098(03)00023-2
  Feedback gain K of the LQR controller is given by K = B^T P format (so-called L_gV-type), which yields the benefit of large gain and phase margins because passivity holds from the input to a suitably chosen output. Keeping this in mind and looking at many nonlinear observers in the literature, one finds that the observer injection gain is often given by L = P^{-1} C^T format (Kalman filter is one of them). This observation suggests that one may find the (nonlinear) error dynamics passive from a suitably chosen input to the error output. Once established, this view allows a generalized framework for analyzing nonlinear observers and some design extension to a larger class of systems. Finally, it enables a re-design of the injection gain so that the error dynamics becomes input-to-state stable from the measurement noise to the estimation error.

  Nonlinear observer design for multi-output systems has some freedom because a system can be converted into one of several possible canonical forms. Here the proposed canonical form is a block-triangular form rooted at each output, and each block is again composed of another triangular form (so that, it is a nested-triangular form). The difficulty is that each block may interfere with the other blocks, and this problem is solved simply by introducing saturation functions (sacrificing global error convergence).

  Strong computing power nowadays enables that numerical integration is performed faster than the real time (for not-too-complicated dynamics, of course). Are there any ways to utilize this surplus of computing power? We propose an observer whose numerical integration goes back-and-forth (using the stored input and output data of the plant), so that it could be interpreted as a batch-process realized on-line. Benefits: it can provide with faster convergence without using high observer gain, and the state estimate without initial transients (which is however delayed, but even the delayed information sometimes becomes useful; see [Shim and Tanwani 2013, IJRNC]), and finally it enables the (finite-time) estimation of the upper bound of the size of the estimate error.

  Nonlinear observer design with additional property of ISS from the measurement noise to the estimation error is an important problem in itself, but not as much studied as expected. We first claim that requiring ISS for the observer problem is a way too much because very few cases satisfy the property. Instead, we propose a new concept of quasi-ISS and claim that it is better suited for the observer problem. A design method is also presented, which leads to the quasi-ISS property, and its application to quantized output feedback is discussed.

 For linear systems, existence conditions for a full order observer and for a reduced order observer are the same. Then what about the nonlinear case? This simple question is not easy to answer, and we can only say yes under a restriction. The construction process of full order observer from a reduced one, however, might be somehow interesting.

E. Output Feedback Stabilization

Asymptotic controllability and observability imply semiglobal practical asymptotic stabilizability by sampled-data output feedback

  In the line of research for semi-global separation principle, the existence of smooth stabilizing state feedback controller and the uniform observability of the plant are often required. It is claimed that asymptotic controllability of the plant (relaxed from the former) and just observability (relaxed from the latter) are enough if we’re satisfied with practical stability, and this is achieved by sampled-data output feedback.

  A separation principle for nonlinear systems is established in terms of stabilization of the origin. Since Gauthier’s high-gain observer is employed, the overall output feedback controller has the same order as the plant.

  If the system is not uniformly observable but just observable, then there may exist singular inputs which destroy observability of the system. This singular input in general depends on the state of the system, which is unknown for output feedback problem. But, by utilizing the information of the outputs, we may determine whether the currently applied input is singular or not. Using this information, the performance of the controller in [Shim and Teel 2003, AUT] can be improved.

  Well-known: When an equilibrium varies continuously with respect to a (constant) input and each of them is (locally) asymptotically stable, we can drive the system state along the trajectory of the equilibria by slowly varying the input (once the initial state is sufficiently close to the starting equilibrium). Underlying property for this is that the basin of attraction of each equilibrium does not vanish along the trajectory of equilbria family. New finding: If some (transcritical) bifurcation occurs (and this is the situation of HIV infection treatment of [Shim et al. 2009, AUT]), the preservation of basin of attraction is not possible. Even in this case, if the bifurcation occurs at the boundary of positive orthant and the system is a positive system, we may still have the nice stability property under slowly-varying-jump-and-wait inputs. In addition, instead of slowly-varying-jump-and-wait inputs, the slowly-varying-jump-and-wait average inputs do the same job.

Note on differential regulator equation for non-minimum phase linear systems with time-varying exosystems

  Being non-minimum phase does not cause any difficulty for linear output regulation problem with LTI exosystem, because the (static) regulator equation has a constant solution, with which the remaining task is just a stabilization. If the exosystem is an LTV system, the so-called differential regulator equation should be employed which has a bounded (time-varying) solution if the plant is of minimum phase. Well… in fact, even if the plant is of non-minimum phase, the differential regulator equation can still have a bounded solution, but it is non-causal. Non-causality may not cause much trouble if the (future) knowledge of S(t) (system matrix of exosystem) is available a priori, because by the non-causal solution we mean the solution of the differential regulator equation existing in computer, but not the solution of the plant.

Determination of stability with respect to positive orthant for a class of positive nonlinear systems

 When an equilibrium varies continuously with respect to a (constant) input and each of them is (locally) asymptotically stable, our concern is the variation of the size of basin of attraction for each equilibrium along the trajectory of equilibria. Based on the center manifold theory, a simple algebraic condition is derived with which non-vanishing basin of attraction (with respect to positive orthant) is ensured for a class of positive systems. This particular problem arises in [Shim et al. 2009, AUT] when the stability of a biological system is analyzed.

Further results on robustness of (possibly discontinuous) sample and hold feedback

 It is clear that the closed-loop with a discontinuous state feedback is not robust with respect to small measurement noise in general. But, if it is implemented in a sample and hold fashion (and if a certain decrease of the Lyapunov function is ensured), then we may still get some robustness. Some intuition is from the fact that the persistent noise affects only at sampling times.

Improving LaSalle’s invariance principle using geometric clues

 Motivated by biological systems which are nonnegative systems in nature, we note that the equilibrium of interest often has a zero component (so that it is at the boundary of the open, forward invariant, positive orthant). Since the equilibrium is at the boundary, a non-isolated equilibrium can be asymptotically stable with respect to the positive orthant. Then, due to the non-uniform convergence rate around the boundary of invariant set, a Lyapunov function of the asymptotically stable equilibrium with respect to the positive orthant may not exist. Then, how to guarantee the asymptotic stability in such a case? LaSalle’s theorem may become of some help, but not in its standard form.

 Although [Shim et al. 2009, AUT] analyzed the slow reduction of dose (in a few hundred days) for a treatment of AIDS, one may complain that the actual effect of drug is fastly fluctuating hour-by-hour in human body (we usually take pills three times a day). If so, here’s a modified version: Drug effect can fluctuate hour-by-hour, as long as its average is slowly varying.

 Stabilization of the (slow reduced order) model is robust under a sufficiently fast stable unmodelled dynamics. Then, what about passivity? It is clear that, even though the (slow reduced order) model is passive and the unmodelled dynamics (fast system) is stable and sufficiently fast, the full order model is not passive in general. However, under some structural conditions, passivity holds for the full order system.

  Effectiveness of the idea of gradual dose reduction [Chang et al. 2004, CDC] is mathematically proven. In particular, (i) the analysis is based on the interval (not a particular value) of parameters, and (ii) the control does not heavily rely on ‘feedback’ (although it is actually feedback). Considering the difficulty of obtaining exact parameter values for biological models, and the difficulty of frequent measurement of viral density, the proposed treatment algorithm may be quite suitable in practice.

 Passive systems are quite easy to control, but the necessary condition for passification includes minimum phase property and (relative degree = one), both of which are invariant under feedback. Then, by placing a dynamic system in parallel with the plant, both can be changed (and the parallel component will then be put in the feedback loop after the design). This is basically an ‘output re-definition’ technique with dynamic component.

  Finite-time convergence to the origin requires that the vector field is not locally Lipschitz at the origin. If a controller for this task is designed based on the backstepping procedure, then the closed-loop vector field loses local Lipschitzness not just at the origin, but also on measure-zero manifolds in the state-space. This unnecessarily annoys the analysis because the forward uniqueness needs to be established separately. We propose a different idea for finite-time convergence (with dynamic feedback); that is, we consider an extended state-space and show that the vector field is smooth on the half of the state-space. Then, we show that any solution from this half-set escapes it within a finite time through the origin. In this way, we avoid the headache of forward uniqueness of solutions. This design however is not practical because finite-time convergence does not hold with measurement noises.

  Engineers from industry are sometimes reluctant to replace their existing controller that has been already in their production line, even if a new control design method is discovered. As an alternative, we propose an ‘add-on’ controller whose role is just to append some performance that is lacking in the pre-installed controller. This add-on controller may not use any detailed information of the pre-installed controller simply because the information is not available (suppose that the controller is already packed in a chip, and no more document remains). In particular, output regulator is well suited for this purpose, just by appending the ability of rejecting sinusoidal disturbances exactly without perturbing the stability of the existing closed-loop.
