Continuous quasi-LPV Systems : how to leave the quadratic framework?

Abstract : This thesis deals with the problem of stability analysis and control design for nonlinear systems in the form of continuous-time Takagi-Sugeno models. The approach to stability analysis is usually based on the direct Lyapunov method. Several approaches in the literature, based on quadratic Lyapunov functions, are proposed to solve this problem ; the results obtained using such functions introduce a conservatism that can be very detrimental. To overcome this problem, various approaches based on non-quadratic Lyapunov functions have also been recently presented; however, these approaches are based on very conservative bounds or too restrictive conditions. The idea developed in this work is to use non-quadratic Lyapunov functions and non-PDC controller in order to derive less conservative stability and stabilization conditions. The main proposals are : using local bounds in partial derivatives instead of time derivatives of the memberships,decoupling the controller gain from the Lyapunov function decision variables, using fuzzy Lyapunov functions in polynomial settings and proposing the synthesis of controller ensuring a priori known time-derivative bounds are fulfilled in a modelling region instead of checking them a posteriori. These new approaches allow proposing local conditions to stabilize continuous T-S fuzzy systems including those that do not admit a quadratic stabilization. Several simulation examples are chosen to verify the results given in this dissertation.
