A new approach to robust \(\mathcal H_{\infty }\) filtering for uncertain systems with both discrete and distributed delays. (English) Zbl 1118.93024

Summary: This paper is concerned with robust \(H_{\infty }\) filter design for a class of linear distributed delay systems with norm-bounded time-varying parameter uncertainties. The distributed delays are assumed to appear in both state and measurement equations. A new design method is proposed by introducing some relaxation matrices and tuning parameters, which can be chosen properly to lead to a less conservative result. A sufficient condition is obtained to guarantee the existence of desired \(H_{\infty }\) filters, which can be constructed by solving a convex optimization problem. A numerical example is included to illustrate the effectiveness and the reduced conservatism of the proposed design technique.
