A practical method for the design of sliding mode controllers using linear matrix inequalities. (English) Zbl 1079.93014

Linear control systems are considered with the aim of selecting a linear sliding surface such that the performance of the reduced order sliding motion is balanced against the control cost needed to maintain sliding. Solution methods are proposed based on convex optimization, and some examples are presented.
