Stability properties of reset systems. (English) Zbl 1283.93213

Summary: Stability properties for a class of reset systems, such as systems containing a Clegg integrator, are investigated. We present Lyapunov based results for verifying \(\mathcal L_{2}\) and exponential stability of reset systems. Our results generalize the available results in the literature and can be easily modified to cover \(\mathcal L_p\) stability for arbitrary \(p\in[1,\infty]\). Several examples illustrate that introducing resets in a linear system may reduce the \(\mathcal L_{2}\) gain if the reset controller parameters are carefully tuned.
