Computer control under time-varying sampling period: an LMI gridding approach. (English) Zbl 1100.93511

Summary: This paper addresses computer control under time-varying sampling period and delayed actuation. The proposed approach uses time-varying observers and state-feedback controllers designed by means of linear matrix inequalities (LMI) and quadratic Lyapunov functions. The use of non-stationary Kalman filters is also discussed. A separation principle applies in some cases. A DC motor control setup shows the applicability of the approach in a real implementation.
