Non-overshooting stabilisation via state and output feedback

Halikias, G., Papageorgiou, A. & Karcanias, N. (2010). Non-overshooting stabilisation via state and output feedback. INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF CONTROL, 83(6), pp. 1232-1247. doi: 10.1080/00207171003664844


The concept of “strong stability” of LTI systems has been introduced in a recent paper [KHP2]. This is a stronger notion of stability compared to alternative definitions (e.g. stability in the sense of Lyapunov, asymptotic stability), which allows the analysis and design of control systems with non-overshooting response in the state-space for arbitrary initial conditions. The paper reviews the notion of “strong stability” [KHP2] and introduces the problem of non-overshooting stabilization. It is shown that non-overshooting stabilization under dynamic and static output feedback are, in a certain sense, equivalent problems. Thus, we turn our attention to static non-overshooting stabilization problems under state-feedback, output injection and output feedback. After developing a number of preliminary results, we give a geometric interpretation to the problem in terms of the intersection of an affine hyperplane and the interior of an open convex cone. A solution to the problem is finally obtained via Linear Matrix Inequalities, along with the complete parametrization of the optimal solution set.
