This paper introduces appropriate concepts of inputtostate stability (ISS) and integralISS for impulsive systems, i.e., dynamical systems that evolve according to ordinary differential equations most of the time, but occasionally exhibit discontinuities (or impulses). We provide a set of Lyapunovbased sufficient conditions for establishing these ISS properties. When the continuous dynamics are ISS but the discrete dynamics that govern the impulses are not, the impulses should not occur too frequently, which is formalized in terms of an average dwelltime (ADT) condition. Conversely, when the impulse dynamics are ISS but the continuous dynamics are not, there must not be overly long intervals between impulses, which is formalized in terms of a novel reverse ADT condition. We also investigate the cases where (i) both the continuous and discrete dynamics are ISS and (ii) one of these is ISS and the other only marginally stable for the zero input, while sharing a common Lyapunov function. In the former case we obtain a stronger notion of ISS, for which a necessary and sufficient Lyapunov characterization is available. The use of the tools developed herein is illustrated through examples from a MicroElectroMechanical System (MEMS) oscillator and a problem of remote estimation over a communication network.

Abstract — We present a power control scheme based on noncooperative game theory, using a fairly broad class of convex cost functions. The multicell CDMA wireless data network is modeled as a switched hybrid system where handoffs of mobiles between different cells correspond to discrete switching events between different subsystems. Under a set of sufficient conditions, we prove the existence of a unique Nash equilibrium for each subsystem, and prove global exponential stability of an update algorithm. We also establish the global convergence of the dynamics of the multicell power control game to a convex superset of Nash equilibria for any switching (handoff) scheme satisfying a mild condition on average dwelltime. Robustness of these results to feedback delays as well as to quantization is investigated. In addition, we consider a quantization scheme to reduce the communication overhead between mobiles and the base stations. Finally, we illustrate the proposed power control scheme through simulations. I.

In this paper we compute the rootmeansquare (RMS) gain of a switched linear system when the interval between consecutive switchings is large. The algorithm proposed is based on the fact that a given constant γ provides an upper bound on the RMS gain whenever there is a separation between the stabilizing and the antistabilizing solutions to a set of γdependent algebraic Riccati equations. The motivation for this problem is the application of robust stability tools to the analysis of hybrid systems. 1

Abstract. We propose the use of formal languages of infinite words over the alphabet of task identifiers as an interface between control designs and software implementations. We argue that this approach is more flexible than the classical realtime scheduling framework based on periodic tasks, and allows composition of interfaces by languagetheoretic operations. We show that finite automata over infinite words offer analyzable representation and can capture many interesting interface specifications such as exponential stability of switched linear systems. 1

Abstract — In this paper, stability and disturbance attenuation issues for a class of Networked Control Systems (NCSs) under uncertain access delay and packet dropout effects are considered. Our aim is to find conditions on the delay and packet dropout rate, under which the system stability and H ∞ disturbance attenuation properties are preserved to a desired level. The basic idea in this paper is to formulate such Networked Control System as a discretetime switched system. Then the NCSs ’ stability and performance problems can be reduced to corresponding problems for the switched systems, which have been studied for decades and for which a number of results are available in the literature. The techniques in this paper are based on recent progress in the discretetime switched systems and piecewise Lyapunov functions. I.

This paper addresses the problem of nonlinear filter design to estimate the relative position and velocity of an unmanned air vehicle (UAV) with respect to a point on a ship using infrared (IR) vision, inertial, and air data sensors. Sufficient conditions are derived for the existence of a particular type of complementary filters with guaranteed stability and performance in the presence of socalled outofframe events that arise when the vision system loses its target temporarily. The results obtained build upon new developments in the theory of linear parametrically varying systems (LPVs) with brief instabilities–also reported in the paper–and provide the proper framework to deal with outofframe events. Field tests with a prototype UAV illustrate the performance of the filter and the scope of applications of the new theory developed.

The problem of controlling nonlinear noisy systems aected by parametric uncertainties is approached via the introduction of a supervisor which switches on, in feedback to the plant, one controller selected from a nite set of predesigned controllers. A Lyapunovbased falsication criterion allows one to ensure robust stability in the presence of uncertain constant parameters and exogenous bounded disturbances. 1 Introduction One of the wellestabilished approaches for dealing in control with plant model uncertainty is the introduction of adaptation in the feedback loop [2]. However, conventional continuous adaptation is not always capable of performing satisfactorily. This may be particulartly true whenever the plant switches among dierent modes of operation or if closedloop signals are not suciently exciting. In both circumstances undesirable transients may typically arise due to slow adaptation. In recent years, switching supervisory control (SSC) has emerged as an alternative ...

The purpose of this paper is to marry the two concepts of Multiple Model Adaptive Control and Safe Adaptive Control. In its simplest form, Multiple Model Adaptive Control involves a supervisor switching among one of a finite number of controllers as more is learnt about the plant, until one of the controllers is finally selected and remains unchanged. Safe Adaptive Control is concerned with ensuring that when the controller is changed in an adaptive control algorithm, the frozen plantcontroller combination is never (closed loop) unstable. This is a nontrivial task since by definition of an adaptive control problem, the plant is not fully known. The proposed solution method involves a frequencydependent performance measure and employs the Vinnicombe metric. The resulting safe switching guarantees depend on the extent to which a closed loop transfer function can be accurately identified.

Abstract — This paper introduces appropriate concepts of inputtostate stability (ISS) and integralISS for systems with impulsive effects. We provide a set of Lyapunovbased sufficient conditions to establish these properties. When the continuous dynamics are stabilizing but the impulsive effects are destabilizing, the impulses should not occur too frequently, which can be formalized in terms of an average dwelltime condition. Conversely, when the impulses are stabilizing and the continuous dynamics are destabilizing, there must not be overly long intervals between impulses, which is formalized in terms of a reverse average dwelltime condition. We also investigate limiting cases of systems that remain stable for arbitrarily small/large average dwelltimes. I.
