Gain reduction in switched sliding-mode control

Show Summary Details


A switched sliding-mode control strategy for a class of nonlinear uncertain systems is presented in this paper. It is characterized by an event-driven gain reduction mechanism which relies on a decomposition of the system state into regions. By enforcing sliding-mode behaviours on a suitable set of sliding manifolds, while avoiding the generation of limit cycles, the proposed strategy proves to globally asymptotically stabilize the origin of the system state space.
