Contribution to ellipsoidal and zonotopic set-membership state estimation

Abstract : In the context of dynamical systems, this thesis focuses on the development of robust set-membership state estimation procedures for different classes of systems. We consider the case of standard linear time-invariant systems, subject to unknown but bounded perturbations and measurement noises. The first part of this thesis builds upon previous results on ellipsoidal set-membership approaches. An extended ellipsoidal set-membership state estimation technique is applied to a model of an octorotor used for radar applications. Then, an extension of this ellipsoidal state estimation approach is proposed for descriptor systems. In the second part, we propose a state estimation technique based on the minimization of the P-radius of a zonotope, applied to the same model of the octorotor. This approach is further extended to deal with piecewise affine systems. In the continuity of the previous approaches, a new zonotopic constrained Kalman filter is proposed in the last part of this thesis. By solving a dual form of an optimization problem, the algorithm projects the state on a zonotope forming the envelope of the set of constraints that the state is subject to. Then, the computational complexity of the algorithm is improved by replacing the original possibly large-scale zonotope with a reduced form, by limiting its number of generators.
