Some Simple But Useful Contributions to
Nonlinear Observer Design
University of Lorraine, France
Abstract:In this talk I will address the problem of observer design for nonlinear systems satisfying some nonlinear properties. It is mainly devoted to Linear Matrix Inequality (LMI) based methods and their use to improve observer design for a large class of nonlinear systems. I will speak about LMI relaxation techniques and show why we are motivated to do that. I will show the advantages and the limits of the LMI-based techniques, and how to exploit such advantages, and how to overcome such limits. This will be shown particularly through some simple examples for which LMI approaches cannot work. Hence some guidelines to overcome this limitation will be briefly presented. A second part of the talk will be dedicated to simple and useful contributions to high-gain observer design, where some techniques to improve performances of the standard high gain observer will be presented. I will show how to use LMIs to reduce the values of the high gain. We will also demonstrate that system state augmentation can allow improving performances of high-gain observer. Finally, prospects will be provided to deal with some new directions on nonlinear observer design by exploiting hybrid estimation architectures and learning-based techniques from Artificial Intelligence based algorithms.
