Eigenstructure-Based Robust Stability Criterion for Linear Time-Varying Systems

  • Published : 2002.10.01


Stability robustness of a linear time-varying system with time-varying structured state space uncertainties is considered by using extended-mean theorem and Bellman's lemma. The extended-mean theorem is a necessary and sufficient exponential stability criterion based on the recently developed PD-eigenvalue and PD-eigenvector for a linear time-varying system. Our new result required that the extended-mean of each nominal PD-eigenvalue should be negative real which is determined by a norm involving the structures of the uncertainty and the no...
