Linear functional state observer for time-delay systems. (English) Zbl 0953.93012

The design of a low-order functional state observer for a system of the form \[ \begin{aligned} \dot x(t) & = Ax(t)+A_d(t-\tau)+Bu(t)\\ x(t) & = g(t),-\tau\leq t\leq 0,\\ y(t) & = Cx(t)\end{aligned} \] is addressed. Under the assumption that a memoryless linear state feedback controller \[ u(t)=Fx(t) \] can be designed, it is shown that a generalisation of Luenberger’s observer can be obtained in the form of \(m\) dynamic systems \[ \dot z_i(t)= E_iz_i(t)+ T_iBu(t)+ G_iy(t)+M_i y(t-\tau) \] provided \[ \begin{aligned} A_d & = LC\\ F_i & = K_i T_i+W_i C\text{ (for some }K_i,T_i,W_i)\\ G_iC-T_iA+E_iT_i & = 0\\ M_i & = T_iL\\ p & \geq(n-r)/r\end{aligned} \] where \(r\) is the output dimension and \(p\) is the column dimension of \(K_i\).
