Furthermore, some latest progress in this area is discussed. Finally, conclusions are drawn and several potential future research directions are outlined.

1. Introduction

During the past decades, the gain-scheduling control and filtering approach has received a lot of attention from the control community. This stems from the fact that the gain-scheduling method is more effective than the traditional ones to cope with the unavoidable nonlinearities and time-varying dynamics of the practical plant. Control and filtering problems are two fundamental issues in control theory and have been intensively discussed by a great number of researchers. The control problems can be classified into two types: state feedback control and output feedback control according to the controller structure. The state feedback controller is based on the state information of the systems, while the purpose of output feedback is to design a controller in terms of measurement output rather than the state of a given system. On the other hand, the general idea of filtering problems is to form a kind of “best estimate” for the true state of some certain system by some potentially noisy observations.

In fact, gain-scheduling is a broad notion that gives rise to many different design ideas, for example, precompensating a nonlinear gain with the inverse gain function, switching gain values according to operating conditions or even according to preset times, controller switching and controller blending, and so on. Therefore, the gain-scheduling idea has been extensively applied to design controllers and filters for many kinds of systems, such as nonlinear stochastic systems with time-varying parameters, T-S fuzzy systems, linear parameter-varying systems. and Markov jumping systems. For these kinds of systems, the algorithms and performance indices have benefited from the gain-scheduling ideas, such as the gain-scheduling proportional-integral-derivative (PID) method, the fuzzy gain-scheduling approach. and the gain-scheduling control.

The randomly occurring incomplete information in system models has been extensively studied by a lot of researchers and many important results have been published; see for example, [13] and, particularly, the survey papers [4, 5]. A flexible and effective model, Bernoulli distribution model, has been firstly introduced and employed to cope with the randomly occurring incomplete information. However, such a random occurrence model satisfying a time-invariant Bernoulli distribution cannot accurately describe the time-varying occurring nature in spite of its effectiveness and flexibility. Consequently, a new model with time-varying probability has later been exploited to describe the randomly occurring incomplete information. Furthermore, recently, a probability-dependent gain-scheduling approach has been proposed to deal with the control and filter synthesis problems for systems with randomly occurring incomplete information.

In this paper, we mainly focus on the gain-scheduled control and filtering problems for parameter-varying systems and aim to give a survey on some recent advances in this area. We introduce some important gain-scheduling algorithms, such as gain-scheduling PID control algorithms, fuzzy gain-scheduling methods, and gain-scheduling techniques. The parameter-varying systems to be discussed mainly include stochastic nonlinear systems, linear parameter-varying systems, networked control systems, and Markov jumping systems, where the gain-scheduling approach has been proven to be effective when it comes to such systems. It should be pointed out that, due to the pervasive existence of randomly occurring phenomena, a probability-dependent gain-scheduling approach has recently been developed to deal with such problems, and the corresponding results will be reviewed in this paper. Furthermore, a series of newly published results on the gain-scheduling control and filtering problems for parameter-varying systems will be surveyed. Finally, some conclusion remarks are drawn and several related future research directions are pointed out.

The remainder of this paper is outlined as follows. In Section 2, some existing gain-scheduling approaches are reviewed. Section 3 covers the recent developments of several important system models with time-varying parameters and Section 4 specifically addresses the probability-dependent gain-scheduled control and filtering problems for systems with randomly occurring incomplete information. Several latest results on gain-scheduled control and filtering problems can be found in Section 5. In Section 6, both conclusions and future research topics are given.

2. Gain-Scheduled Control and Filtering

2.1. Gain-Scheduled PID Control

In control area, PID control strategy offers a simple yet efficient solution to many real-world control problems and has become the most widely used control method [6]. Therefore, in practical systems, PID control algorithm has been employed in more than of control loops. During the past decades, much attention has been paid to improve PID control performance from tuning rules, identification schemes, adaptation techniques, and so forth. At the same time, with some advanced ideas having been put forward in science fields, such as optimization algorithm [79], the concept of cloud computation [1012], integration and modularity [10, 13], PID technology appears to be focused on the integration of available methods in the form of software so as to get the best performance of PID control [6]. The PID controllers in the literature can roughly be divided into two main categories according to their structures. The first one is with fixed controller parameters during the control process after they have been tuned. For this category, the controllers are simple but cannot always effectively control the systems with time-varying parameters. The other one has controller gains that can be scheduled on-line based on the time-varying parameters in the plant model, which is called the gain-scheduled PID control [6]. Gain-scheduling technique is an important improvement way for PID controller structure in engineering to deal with some complex characteristics, such as nonlinear process and time-varying features. During the past decades, the gain-scheduled PID control problems have obtained considerable attention and a variety of results have been reported; see for example, [1417]. In [14], a systematic approach has been proposed to design the gain-scheduled PI controllers for nonlinear processes, which are based on the empirical state-affine models of the process that can be directly identified from the process data. In [15], a PI-type compensator has been designed by the gain-scheduling technique, and an algorithm has been firstly presented by which the resulting compensators at fixed values of the parameter are optimally tuned. [16] has addressed the problem of the gain-scheduled PID controller design which can ensure the stability for the closed-loop systems. In the gain-scheduled controller design procedure, the maximal rate value of the gain-scheduled parameter changes has been considered, which allows us to decrease the conservativeness and obtain the controller with a given performance.

2.2. , , and Mixed / Gain-Scheduled Approach

Control performance criteria are key elements in control theory. The most fundamental control objectives are quite naturally and effectively expressed as the norm of certain signals in the control loops. The performance criterion can generally be expressed as minimizing the norm of the closed-loop transfer function and internally stabilizing the system, while the objective of performance criterion is to obtain a controller/filter that minimizes the maximum norm (i.e., the norm) of an input-output operator [18]. As is well known, the performance is an important index for evaluating the disturbance rejection attenuation property. Since Zames’s original work [19] has been published in 1981, the past two decades have witnessed a tremendous advance that has happened in the control theory. The standard control problem has been completely solved by Doyle et al. for the linear systems by deriving simple state-space formulas for all controllers [20].

Mixed / performance can enjoy the advantages of both and performance. In [21], the mixed / approach has been firstly proposed as a way to formulate an optimization problem to the standard control problem by using the Lagrange multiplier method. The mixed / control problems have been addressed in [22], and in [23], both the state feedback and output feedback problems have been converted into convex optimization problems in the content of mixed / control.

Under guaranteed , or mixed / performance, many gain-scheduled control and filtering problems are considered. In [24], the gain-scheduled state feedback control problem has been considered by using the parameter-dependent Lyapunov function for linear parameter-varying system. In [25], the gain-scheduled controllers for time-varying systems have been designed. Both generalized and discrete-time gain-scheduled filter design problems have been investigated in [26] with the results extended to mixed / designs. In [27], it has been shown that an gain-scheduled controller can be obtained for a finite set of disturbance frequencies by convex optimization method. [28] has considered the and performance analysis and synthesis procedures for the design of both gain-scheduled and robust static output feedback controllers as well as the mixed / guaranteed cost control problem.

2.3. Fuzzy Gain-Scheduling Method

Many mathematical models for real-world phenomena are inherently nonlinear, and the stability analysis and synthesis problems for nonlinear systems are generally difficult. To facilitate the mathematical analysis, in the literature, some stringent assumptions have been imposed on the nonlinearities, such as smoothness and Lipschitz continuity, which have inevitably led to considerable conservatism. As an alternative approach, in the past few decades, the fuzzy logic theory has been demonstrated to be effective in dealing with a variety of complex nonlinear systems, which has therefore received a great deal of attention in the literature; see for example, [2932]. The fuzzy controller consists of a set of fuzzy control rules, each of which is derived from the corresponding rule of the process model. Among various fuzzy systems, one of the most popular models is the Takagi-Sugeno (T-S) model; see [29, 3335] for some recent publications. In this type of fuzzy model, a nonlinear system is represented by a set of local linear models smoothly connected by nonlinear membership functions, which have a convenient and simple dynamic structure and hence the existing results for linear systems can be readily extended to this class of nonlinear systems.

The fuzzy controller can be described as where is the state variable of the fuzzy system, is the number of fuzzy rules, is the controller gain for the rule , is the control input, and is the fuzzy weight obtained in the fuzzy model of the controlled system. Note that different control rules are with an identical structure but different gains. Therefore, such a fuzzy controller is referred to as a fuzzy gain-scheduled controller, where gain-scheduling approach is performed by the fuzzy weights . Up to now, many results on the fuzzy gain-scheduled control problem have been published; see [3638].

In [36], the development of a fuzzy gain-scheduling scheme of PID controllers is described for the process control. Fuzzy rules are utilized on-line to determine the controller parameters based on the error signal and its first difference. Simulation results demonstrate that better control performance can be achieved in comparison with the Ziegler-Nichols controllers and the Kitamoris PID controllers. In [37], a model-based fuzzy control problem has been addressed, and a constructive and automated method for the design of a gain-scheduled controller is presented. Based on a given T-S fuzzy model of the plant, the controller is designed such that stability and prescribed performance of the closed loop are guaranteed. In [38], the robust control problem has been investigated for a class of uncertain time-delay T-S fuzzy systems, where the delays are assumed as infinite-distributed delays and the uncertain parameters are norm-bounded. By using the Lyapunov stability theory and the linear matrix inequality (LMI) technique, sufficient conditions have been developed so that the closed-loop fuzzy control system is guaranteed to be exponentially stable with performance.

3. Systems Models

This section gives a systematic overview of recent advances on several common systems, for which the gain-scheduling technique is suitable to design controllers and filters. In general, these systems can be categorized as linear parameter-varying systems, stochastic nonlinear systems, networked control systems, and Markovian jump systems. In the following, we will take a deep investigation of these systems one by one in order to inspire more research interest.

3.1. Linear Parameter-Varying Systems

Linear parameter-varying (LPV) systems are a very special type of systems, whose state-space system matrices are functions dependent on unknown but measurable time-varying parameters, and the measurements of these parameters provide real-time information according to the variations of the plant’s characteristics. In the past few years, the research on LPV systems has become a promising work from both theoretical and engineering viewpoints. For example, in [39], the sensor-fault-tolerant control problem for LPV systems has been considered, while the analysis and synthesis issues have been conducted in [40] for LPV systems with parameter-varying time delays. Moreover, the designs of robust controller/filter for LPV systems have also acquired a great deal of attention, and some representative results have appeared in [4145].

It should be noticed that, in order to design an appropriate controller/filter for the LPV systems, the gain-scheduling approach has been proven to be an effective one in this process. The idea of gain-scheduling approach is to design controller/filter gains as functions of the scheduling parameters, which are supposed to be available in real time and can be utilized to adjust the controller/filter with hope to get the best performance of the system. Therefore, gain-scheduled control and filtering problems for LPV systems have stirred a great deal of interest in these years; see, for example, [4648]. Survey [49] has shown in great detail about how gain-scheduling approach has worked in LPV systems and several successful applications have been proposed.

On the other hand, for the purpose of designing a controller/filter with less conservatism for the LPV systems, it is natural to construct novel Lyapunov functions with scheduling parameters, which are usually called parameter-dependent Lyapunov functions. Very recently, the parameter-dependent Lyapunov function approach has been applied in the gain-scheduled control/filtering problems so as to achieve better control/filtering performance requirements and some results have been reported in the literature [46, 48, 50, 51].

3.2. Stochastic Nonlinear Systems

Owing to pervasive existence of stochastic perturbations in reality, stochastic models have been successfully utilized to describe many practical systems such as mechanical systems, economic systems, and biological systems. Over the past few decades, the study of stabilization, control, and filtering problems for stochastic systems has been paid much attention by many researchers and a large number of results have been obtained in the literature; see, for example, [5256].

Besides, since nonlinearity is inevitable in most real-world systems, it is not surprising that analysis and synthesis of stochastic nonlinear systems have attracted increasing research attention, and some latest results have been published; see, for example, [5763]. Among them, the nonlinearity has often been assumed to be sector-nonlinearity (also called sector-like nonlinearity), which is known to be quite general that includes the widely used Lipschitz condition as a special case. Moreover, the stochastic nonlinearity described by statistical means has drawn particular research focus since it covers several well-studied nonlinearities in stochastic systems; see, for example, [55, 64, 65].

Recently, the gain-scheduled control and filtering problems for stochastic nonlinear systems have attracted increasing attention from a variety of engineering areas. For instance, in [66], the gain-scheduled PI tracking control problem for stochastic nonlinear systems subject to partially known jump probabilities has been studied, the gain-scheduled robust fault detection on a class of time-delay stochastic nonlinear systems has been considered in [67], and the gain-scheduled controllers as well as gain-scheduled worst-case controllers have been introduced in [68, 69], separately. In addition, for stochastic nonlinear systems with randomly occurring incomplete information, the interested reader may consult [7074] for some recent results.

3.3. Networked Control Systems

In recent years, with the various applications of networks in the complex dynamical processes such as advanced aircraft, spacecraft, and automotive and manufacturing processes, the networked control systems (NCSs) have attracted much attention owing to low cost, high reliability, reduced weight and power requirements, simple installation and maintenance, and decreasing the hard wiring and implementation difficulties. NCSs are typically made up of sensors, actuators, and controllers, which communicate with a shared network. Review papers about NCSs can be found in [7578].

Network-induced delay and packet dropout are key features of NCSs. Because of the devices connected to the shared medium, the transmission capacity of the communication network is usually limited, which in turn affects the number of bits or packets per second transported via the network. Consequently, the networked-induced delays and packet losses have become unavoidable and constitute the main causes for degrading the achievable performance of the networked systems. Therefore, in the past decade, the filtering and control problems for NCSs with communication delays and/or missing measurements have been extensively considered by many researchers; see, for example, [7984].

As an important method, gain-scheduling can also be applied in the NCSs. In [85], the modeling and dynamic gain-scheduling design mechanism of the NCSs with packet losses have been investigated. Different from the existing static state feedback control results, [86] has constructed a gain-scheduling-based state feedback integral controller, where an integral action was introduced to address the nonzero disturbance issue, while [87] has synthesized a gain-scheduled output feedback control for LPV systems with jumping parameters. Moreover, motivated by the packet-based control approach, [88] has proposed an offline model-predictive control scheme based on the gain-scheduling method. This scheme is capable of actively compensating for the communication constraints, which is an impossible task for conventional control approaches, and at the same time it dramatically reduces the communication and computational costs compared with the packet-based control approaches.

3.4. Markovian Jump Systems

Markovian jump systems are the hybrid systems with two components in the state [89]. The first one refers to the mode which is described by a continuous-time finite-state Markovian process, and the second one refers to the state which is represented by a system of differential equations.

The jump systems have the advantage of modeling the dynamic systems subject to abrupt variation in their structures caused by component failures or repairs, sudden environmental disturbance, changing subsystem interconnections, or operating in different points of a nonlinear plant, which often take place in a lot of dynamics systems [8991]. Recently, the problems of stability and stabilization for uncertain Markovian jump systems with time delays have been extensively investigated; see [9295] and references therein. On the other hand, filtering and control for Markovian jump systems with or without nonlinear disturbances have also drawn some research attention; see [9698] for some related results. In addition, some papers have assumed partly unknown transition probabilities; see [99, 100].

Gain-scheduling method can also be applied to analyze the Markovian jump systems. In [101], based on the stochastic Lyapunov-Krasovskii functional approach, a new globally exponentially stochastically stabilizable criterion has been derived for the jumping system by means of linear matrix inequalities. In [66], continuous gain-scheduling approach has been employed to design continuous nonlinear PI tracking controllers on the entire nonlinear jumping system.

4. Probability-Dependent Gain-Scheduled Control and Filtering for Systems with Randomly Occurring Incomplete Information

The randomly occurring incomplete information has recently raised a great deal of interest within the control community; it refers to these phenomena appearing in a random way based on a certain kind of probabilistic law which mainly caused by some environment reasons, such as random failures and repairs of the components, and intermittently switching in the interconnections of subsystems. These randomly occurring incomplete information phenomena under consideration mainly include missing measurements [102104], randomly occurring delays [61], randomly occurring sensor saturations [60, 105], randomly occurring nonlinearities [51, 74], and randomly occurring actuator faults [106, 107]. For more details about these randomly occurring incomplete information phenomena, we refer readers to survey paper [4, 5]. It is worth noting that, these randomly occurring incomplete information phenomena may potentially cause a lot of undesired problems that would deteriorate the system performance; hence, there is a great need to develop new strategy to deal with this problem effectively.

As we all know, the Bernoulli distribution model is perhaps the most effective one to be utilized in different systems (e.g., time-delay systems [61, 104, 108], nonlinear systems [74, 109], and Markovian jump systems [110]) to reflect randomly occurring incomplete information. Recently, some efforts have been turned to describe the randomly occurring incomplete information with a more general model; for example, in [55, 111], a general model of multiple missing measurements has been investigated by using a diagonal matrix to describe the different missing probabilities for individual sensors. However, it should be mentioned that in most of the existing literature, the randomly occurring incomplete information has been assumed to satisfy a time-invariant Bernoulli distribution or other distributions. Such an assumption, unfortunately, limits the application scope since randomly occurring incomplete information usually appears with time-varying probabilities due to the fact that the environment often changes from moment to moment in real systems. Therefore, it is much more meaningful to investigate the randomly occurring incomplete information with time-varying probabilities.

As we have introduced before, the gain-scheduling approach is one of the most popular ways to design a controller or filter, whose gains can be updated by a set of tuning parameters in order to optimize the closed-loop system’s performance in time. On the other hand, the randomly occurring incomplete information often occurs with time-varying probabilities, which also can be considered as a tuning parameter for the controller or filter. Under such considerations, a novel gain-scheduling approach, namely, probability-dependent gains-scheduling approach, has been proposed to deal with systems with randomly occurring incomplete information.

It is noteworthy that by utilizing the probability-dependent gains-scheduling approach, the designed gain-scheduled controller/filter has not only the constant part but also the time-varying part which can be scheduled on-line according to the corresponding time-varying probability parameters; therefore, it will naturally lead to less conservatism than the conventional ones with fixed gains only. Associated with that, the probability-dependent Lyapunov functional has also been constructed in a sense that it can reduce the potential conservatism. With the development of the related research in the past several years, the probability-dependent gains-scheduled controller/filter has turned out to be a very useful tool to cope with system with randomly occurring incomplete information.

Since firstly introduced in [70], the probability-dependent gains-scheduling approach has recently received more and more attention, and a series of results have been reported; see, for example, [70, 71, 73, 74]. In [74], a probability-dependent gain-scheduled state feedback control problem has been addressed for a class of discrete-time stochastic delayed systems with randomly occurring nonlinearities. In the same vein, the corresponding output feedback control problem has been studied in [71] for the systems with missing measurement and discrete distributed delays. Parallel to the control issues, the probability-dependent gain-scheduling filtering problems have also been considered, and for systems with missing measurements, [70] has presented an elegant result, while a robust deconvolution filter has been designed in [73] to deal with the randomly occurring sensor delays.

5. Latest Progress

The probability-dependent gains-scheduling approach has been firstly proposed in [70], and it has been proven to be an effective one to deal with systems with randomly occurring incomplete information, it is now receiving increasing attention. For instance, in [112], under a guaranteed performance level, the probability-dependent gain-scheduling approach has been successfully applied to design a fault-tolerant controller for systems with randomly occurring actuator faults, while the probability-dependent gains-scheduling approach has been used in [72] in order to design a nonfragile gain-scheduled controller for systems with actuator uncertainties and random occurring sensor saturation. Furthermore, [51] has developed the probability-dependent synchronization control scheme for a class of dynamical networks with randomly varying nonlinearities.

The study on two-dimensional (2D) systems has recently attracted considerable attention due to their extensive applications in many engineering fields such as thermal process in chemical reactors, multidimensional digital filtering, and electron heating systems, [113115]. In [116], the gain-scheduled control problem has been addressed for 2D discrete-time linear parameter-varying systems described by the Roesser model with matrices depending affinely on time-varying parameters which are measured on-line but their trajectory waveforms are not known in advance, and it is considered that the admissible values and variations of the parameters are confined to given intervals. Besides, the related guaranteed cost gain-scheduled control problem of 2D discrete-time linear parameter-varying systems has been investigated in [117].

The polynomial nonlinear systems are a rather general class of nonlinear systems. It is mainly about the nonlinearity disturbance in the nonlinear systems which can be approximated by polynomials via the Taylor expansion centered on the point we are interested in, and the introduced conservatism that came from the approximation error can be reduced by increasing the degree of the polynomials. Recently, the control and filtering issues for polynomial nonlinear systems have attracted some initial research attention. For instance, a nonlinear gain-scheduling output-feedback control problem has been addressed in [118] for polynomial nonlinear systems subject to actuator saturation.

Recently, in the gain-scheduled paradigm, the scheduling parameters with uncertainties have received scattered attention. For instance, in [119], the scheduling parameters are supposed to be provided with bounded proportional uncertainties; then, the corresponding -type control problem is tackled and a sufficient condition for the resulting problem is given in terms of parameter-dependent LMIs. Moreover, the relationship of the proposed method and an existing method for tackling proportional uncertainties is clarified.

A limitation of the original gain-scheduling approaches is that the closed-loop stability can only be assured when the underlying parameters vary sufficiently slowly. A remedy exists but requires the implementation of possible solution of asymptotic Riccati equations (AREs) for an infinite number of different parameter values and the on-line solution of a Riccati differential equation (RDE) with time-varying coefficient matrices. The method in [120] avoids solving the RDE online; instead, it uses an explicit transient formula that looks up the predetermined solutions of the associated AREs at a finite set of given system operating points; furthermore, only a finite number of AREs are need to be solved to determine a finite set of controller gains.

There is a long history of gain-scheduling in applications areas. Recently, in [121], a robust control synthesis framework has been presented for switched direct current to DC-DC converters. The framework was based on an LMI formulation which can be solved automatically by efficient convex optimization algorithms. In [122], a control strategy based on gain-scheduling is proposed, which is able to regulate both stiffness and position at output link, and the gain-scheduled controller is designed based on a set of linear quadratic regulators, which are with inherent robustness properties and can accommodate significant variations in the actuation plant parameters.

6. Conclusions and Future Work

In this paper, we have summarized some recent advances on the gain-scheduled control and filtering for several kinds of systems with randomly occurring incomplete information. Several kinds of techniques related to gain-scheduled control and filtering algorithms have been surveyed. Next, the research and development of various system models have been reviewed, such as stochastic nonlinear systems, networked control systems, and linear parameter-varying systems. Furthermore, the probability-dependent gain-scheduled control and filtering problems for systems with randomly occurring incomplete information have been introduced. To conclude this survey paper, based on the literature review, some related topics for the future research work are listed as follows.(1)In engineering applications, there still exist many more complex yet important randomly occurring issues which, however, have not been considered. Therefore, it would be a promising research topic to discuss these new phenomena of incomplete information and establish a unified measurement model accounting for these issues simultaneously.(2)In the existing literatures, a lot of results are based on the LMI conditions. While the interior-point LMI solvers are significantly faster than the classical convex optimization algorithms, it should be kept in mind that the complexity of LMI computations remains higher than that of solving, for example, a Riccati equation. For instance, problems with thousand design variables typically take over an hour on today’s workstations. Therefore, another future research direction is to reduce the computation cost while keeping the desired performances.(3)In case that multiple randomly occurring incomplete information appear simultaneously and influence each other in the same systems, the probability-dependent gain-scheduling analysis and synthesis problem is a challenge, which constitutes one of the future research topics.(4)When there is randomly occurring incomplete information in two-dimensional system, the probability-dependent gain-scheduled control and filtering problems are potential research topics.(5)An additional trend for future research is to discuss the probability-dependent gain-scheduled synchronization, control, and filtering problems for nonlinear stochastic complex networks with randomly occurring incomplete information.
