Output-Feedback Tracking Control for Polynomial Fuzzy Model-Based Control Systems

Part of the Studies in Systems, Decision and Control book series (SSDC, volume 64)


This chapter considers a tracking problem for polynomial-fuzzy model-based control systems. An output-feedback polynomial fuzzy controller is employed to drive the system outputs to follow a reference trajectory. SOS-based stability conditions are obtained to determine the system stability and synthesize the controller where the tracking performance satisfies an \(H_\infty \) performance index governing the tracking error. Simulation examples are presented to verify the analysis results and show that the output-feedback polynomial fuzzy controller is able to handle the tracking control problem well.
