Relaxed fuzzy observer-based output feedback control synthesis of discrete-time nonlinear control systems
This work develops the development of observer-based output feedback control design of discrete-time nonlinear systems in the form of Takagi-Sugeno fuzzy model. Lately, previous results have been improved in virtue of a two-step method. From a technical point of view, it is not flawless and related problems have not been completely resolved. In this study, more advanced two-steps approach is further developed while the relative sizes among different normalized fuzzy weighting functions are utilized by introducing some additional matrix variables. As a result of the above work, those main defects of the existing method can be redressed and a desired solution in aspect of not only reducing the conservatism but also alleviating the computation complexity is provided for some special cases. Moreover, the effectiveness of the proposed result is shown at length by means of an illustrative example.
