Stability regions of nonlinear dynamical systems: A constructive methodology. (English) Zbl 0689.93046
Summary: A constructive methodology for estimating stability regions of nonlinear dynamical systems is developed. The constructive methodology starts with a given Lyapunov function (either a global Lyapunov function or a local Lyapunov function) and yields a sequence of Lyapunov functions which are then used to estimate the stability region. The resulting sequence of estimated stability regions is shown to be a strictly monotonic increasing sequence and yet each of them remains inside the entire stability region. The significance of this methodology includes: 1) its ability to significantly reduce the conservativeness in estimating the stability regions; 2) its computational efficiency; 3) its adaptability; and 4) its sound theoretical basis. Furthermore, the methodology is applicable to estimate the stability regions of general nonlinear dynamical systems.
