Finite settling time stabilisation: the robust SISO case

Milonidis, E., Kostarigka, A. & Karcanias, N. (2011). Finite settling time stabilisation: the robust SISO case. International Journal of Control, 84(9), pp. 1521-1532. doi: 10.1080/00207179.2011.611949


This article deals with the problem of robustness to multiplicative plant perturbations for the case of finite settling time stabilisation (FSTS) of single input single output (SISO), linear, discrete-time systems. FSTS is a generalisation of the deadbeat control and as in the case of deadbeat control the main feature of FSTS is the placement of all closed-loop poles at the origin of the z-plane. This makes FSTS sensitive to plant perturbations hence, the need of robust design. An efficient robustness index is introduced and the problem is reduced to a finite linear programme where all the benefits of the simplex method, such as effectiveness, efficiency and ability to provide complete solution to the optimisation problem, can be exploited.
