The problem of dissipative output tracking control of linear systems with time delay is investigated. Firstly, an augmented system is constructed to describe dissipative output tracking control error, and the concept of dissipative output tracking is defined. Based on this, some sufficient conditions are derived in terms of linear matrix inequalities (LMIs) technique, which ensure that the augmented system is dissipative and stable; then design methods of dissipative output tracking state-feedback controller are provided, and the desired controller gain can be expressed through the solutions of LMIs. Finally, a numerical simulation example is given to illustrate the validity of the proposed results.
