A switching control approach to stabilization of parameter varying time delay systems
Robust stabilization problem is considered for time varying time delay systems, where the system parameters are scheduled along a measurable signal trajectory. A switching control approach is proposed for a class of parameter varying systems, where candidate controllers are designed for robust stabilization at certain operating regions. A dwell time based hysteresis switching logic is proposed to guarantee the stability of the switched parameter varying time delay system in the whole operating range. It is shown that if the parameter variation is slow enough (upper bound of the time derivative is determined in terms the dwell time for the switched delay system), then the system is stable with the proposed switched controllers.
