Tuning of sampled-data ADRC for nonlinear uncertain systems

  • Wenchao Xue
  • Yi Huang


This paper concerns with the parameters tuning of active disturbance rejection control (ADRC) for a class of nonlinear systems with sampling rate not fast enough. The theoretical results show the quantitative relationship between the sampling rate, the parameters of ADRC, the size of uncertainties in system and the properties of the closed-loop system. Furthermore, the capability of the sampled-data ADRC under given sampling rate is quantitatively discussed.
