Event-triggered bumpless transfer control for switched systems with its application to switched RLC circuits

Original paper


This article concentrates on the event-triggered bumpless transfer control problem for switched linear systems. The goal is to reduce the control bumps induced by switchings and triggering, and to ensure the stability of the system. First, a novel description of the bumpless transfer performance is presented, quantifying the suppression level on the control bumps in both relative and absolute viewpoints. Then, an improved switching mechanism, an event-triggered scheme and a collection of event-driven controllers are jointly designed. Further, under the designed switching logic, event-triggered rule and controllers, a criterion is established to attain the goal. Besides, Zeno behavior is excluded. Finally, an application on a switched RLC circuit is offered, verifying the efficiency of the developed event-triggered bumpless transfer control strategy.
