Performance analysis of controlled uncertain systems

  • Y. H. Chen


Robust control which is designed via the Lyapunov approach has been shown to be effective for nonlinear uncertain systems. The performance of the controlled systems is studied by the Lyapunov argument. We propose to use the comparison principle which is based on the differential inequality to further explore the performance of controlled uncertain systems.
