Positive-real structure and high-gain adaptive stabilization. (English) Zbl 0631.93058
This paper is a mathematical treatise presenting a proof of the stability conditions for a multivariable system with time-varying output feedback and subjected to linear or nonlinear perturbations of the state, output and input. It is assumed that the system is linear, controllable, observable and minimum-phase. The stability of the feedback system is proved with the Lyapunov equation and by relating ‘gain divergence’ \((\lim_{t\to \infty}k(t)\to \infty\), where k(t) is a feedback gain) to the system-theoretic criterion for positive-real matrices. No application is inserted and this paper is recommended for mathematicians with an interest in gain adaptation control rules.
