Control of Switching Systems by Invariance Analysis (Invited Talk)

Laurent Fribourg
Switched systems are embedded devices widespread in industrial applications such as power electronics and automotive control. They consist of continuous-time dynamical subsystems and a rule that controls the switching between them. Under a suitable control rule, the system can improve its steady-state performance and meet essential properties such as safety and stability in desirable operating zones. We explain that such controller synthesis problems are related to the construction of appropriate invariants of the state space,...
