Strict-feedback Form

Strict-feedback Form

In control theory, dynamical systems are in strict-feedback form when they can be expressed as

begin{cases} dot{mathbf{x}} = f_0(mathbf{x}) + g_0(mathbf{x}) z_1\
dot{z}_1 = f_1(mathbf{x},z_1) + g_1(mathbf{x},z_1) z_2\
dot{z}_2 = f_2(mathbf{x},z_1,z_2) + g_2(mathbf{x},z_1,z_2) z_3\
dot{z}_i = f_i(mathbf{x},z_1, z_2, ldots, z_{i-1}, z_i) + g_i(mathbf{x},z_1, z_2, ldots, z_{i-1}, z_i) z_{i+1} quad text{ for } 1 leq i < k-1\
dot{z}_{k-1} = f_{k-1}(mathbf{x},z_1, z_2, ldots, z_{k-1}) + g_{k-1}(mathbf{x},z_1, z_2, ldots, z_{k-1}) z_k\
dot{z}_k = f_k(mathbf{x},z_1, z_2, ldots, z_{k-1}, z_k) + g_k(mathbf{x},z_1, z_2, dots, z_{k-1}, z_k) uend{cases}

  • vanish at the origin (i.e., ),
  • are nonzero over the domain of interest (i.e., for ).

Here, strict feedback refers to the fact that the nonlinear functions and in the equation only depend on states that are fed back to that subsystem. That is, the system has a kind of lower triangular form.

Famous quotes containing the word form:

    Self-esteem is the real magic wand that can form a child’s future. A child’s self-esteem affects every area of her existence, from friends she chooses, to how well she does academically in school, to what kind of job she gets, to even the person she chooses to marry.
    Stephanie Martson (20th century)
