Sliding sector for variable structure system

Part of the Lecture Notes in Control and Information Sciences book series (LNCIS, volume 247)


This paper presents VS controllers with sliding sector. The sliding sector is designed so that some norm of the state is decreasing inside it without any control action. VS control law ensures the norm decreases in the state space and thus yields a quadratic stable VS control system. The discrete-time system described by transfer function is also taken into consideration.
