Abstract

A delay partitioning approach is introduced to solve problems of passivity and passification for continuous T-S fuzzy system with time delay. Our aim is to design a state feedback controller such that the resulting closed system is passive. By constructing a Lyapunov-Krasovskii functional, delay-dependent passivity/passification performance conditions are formulated in terms of linear matrix inequalities (LMIs). Finally, numerical examples are used to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed approaches which can further reduce conservatism and become more obvious with partitioning getting thinner.

1. Introduction

The passivity concept was introduced by Willems [1] and developed further by Hill and Moylan [2]. Passivity of nonlinear systems has attracted great interest in the control area mainly because of the link between stability and passivity. The passivity theory provides a nice tool for analyzing the stability of systems and has found applications in diverse areas such as stability, signal processing, chaos control, and synchronization.

Since most physical systems in real world are nonlinear, researchers have been devoting their efforts to the control of nonlinear systems. Among the methods, the fuzzy control has been proven to be effective in dealing with the analysis of nonlinear systems. especially the T-S fuzzy control [3, 4]. It is denoted by a group of IF-THEN rules that the conventional linear system theory can be applied to the analysis of the class of nonlinear systems, and numerous nonlinear analysis problems have been studied based on this T-S fuzzy model, such as [57] reported the problem of stability analysis, and [810] investigated the control designs. References [1113] mentioned the fault detection of the T-S fuzzy systems. model reduction is addressed in [14]. The fuzzy controller was carried out via Parallel Distributed Compensation (PDC) technique [15]. Based on the PDC technique, the fuzzy controller can also be designed to guarantee the passivity of T-S fuzzy systems.

On the other hand, the time delay exists naturally in various control systems. Time delays often degrade the system’s performance and even cause instability. Therefore, time delays have received great attention in recent years and many researchers have studied various analytical techniques and developed many synthesis methods for time-delay systems. For instance, model reduction is addressed in [16] and filtering problems are investigated in [17, 18]. So, the passivity and passification analysis of nonlinear systems with time delays is worth to be discussed and researched. To date, researches have gained many results in passivity control of T-S fuzzy systems; the passivity of delayed neural networks is considered in [19], passivity of fuzzy time-delay systems is investigated in [20] which adopt delay moom’s inequality, and passive controller design for T-S fuzzy systems is addressed in [21]. The passivity of uncertain fuzzy systems is considered in [22]. However, the above methods still have strong conservation, and it is necessary for us to further study.

In this paper, we adopt a delay partitioning approach to study the passivity and passification of T-S fuzzy systems with time delay. Based on this idea, we can further reduce the conservatism, and it becomes even less conservative when the partitioning goes finer. The results of this paper are given in terms of LMIs. The rest of the paper is organized as follows. In Section 2, the problem to be studied is stated and some preliminaries are presented. Passivity analysis results are presented in Section 3. Based on the results obtained in Section 3, we design the controller in Section 4. In Section 5, numerical examples are given to demonstrate the effectiveness of the theoretical results. Finally, conclusions are drawn in Section 6.

2. Problem Statement and Preliminaries

Consider the T-S fuzzy system with time delay has the following form.

Plant Rule :

IF is and … and is THEN where is the state vector; is the control input vector; is a time delay; is the initial condition.

Controller Rule :

IF is and… and is THEN where is the fuzzy set; is the number of IF-THEN rules; is the premise variables vector; , are constant matrices representing state-feedback control gains. Let be the normalized membership function of the fuzzy set where is the grade of membership function of in . It is assumed that ,  , and for all . Therefore, and for all . By applying (3) into (1), the fuzzy system can be expressed as with By applying (2) into (4), we can get the following closed-loop system: Before formulating the main problem, we first give the following definition.

Definition 1 (Li et al. [20]). The fuzzy system (1) is called passive if there exists a scalar such that for all .

3. Passivity Analysis

The problems to be addressed in this paper can be expressed as follows.

Problem 1  (passivity analysis). Given the feedback controller gain matrices ,   in (2), determine under what conditions the closed-loop system (6) is passive for all in the sense of Definition 1.

Problem 2  (passification). Determine the feedback controller gain matrices, , in (2), such that the closed-loop system (6) is passive for all in the sense of Definition 1.

In this section, we will present a sufficient condition in terms of LMIs, under which the closed-loop system (6) is passive.

Theorem 2. Given matrices , an integer and a scalar , if there exist symmetric positive definite matrices , , , and matrices , and scalar , satisfying where Then the fuzzy system (1) is passive in the sense of Definition 1 for the time delay .

Proof. Choose a Lyapunov-Krasovskii functional as with where The time-derivative of along the trajectory of the system in (6) is given by Define and according to the Newton-Leibniz formula and the system in (6), we have Therefore If Then So, we can obtain where Besides Then Besides where So, we have with If then We can obtain It follows by integrating (31) with respect to over the time period that (7) holds, and hence the delayed fuzzy system (1) is passive in the sense of Definition 1. Our next objective is to convert the inequalities in (18) and (29) to some finite LMIs, then (29) can be rewritten as Equation (18) can be rewritten as From the Schur complement, we can get the inequalities (8), (9), and (10), and the proof is completed.

4. Controller Design

In this section, fuzzy state feedback controllers will be designed based on the result developed in the previous section.

Theorem 3. Given an integer and scalars , , there exists a fuzzy state feedback controller such that the closed-loop system (4) is passive if there exist symmetric positive definite matrices , , , , and matrices , , and scalars , , satisfying where If the above conditions are feasible, the gains of the controller are given by

Proof. Assume that is invertible, define , and Premultiplying and postmultiplying (34) with and , then we obtainwhere We defining Then then Thus, by the Schur complement, we can obtain (40) is equivalent to (8). Pre- and postmultiplying (35) with and , we obtain (9), pre- and postmultiplying (36) with and , we obtain (10). The proof is completed.

5. Numerical Example

Without delay and uncertainty, Example 1 designs different passive controllers by applying the theorem of our paper and the literature [22], respectively. We can compare the region of feasible solution.

Example 1. Consider a fuzzy system of the following form.
Plant Rules:
Rule 1: IF is , THEN
Rule 2: IF is , THEN with We can obtain Figure 1 by applying our method and obtain Figure 2 by applying method in [22]. Symbol “*” shows that feasible solution exists at that point; symbol “o” shows that feasible solution does not exist at that point.

Figure 1: The feasible region based on Theorem 2.
714525.fig.002
Figure 2: The feasible region based on [22].

It is obvious that Theorem 3 can relax the conditions in [22], and our method futher reduced the conservatism.

Example 2 (Li et al. [20]). Consider a delayed fuzzy system of the following form.
Plant Rules:
Rule 1: IF is , THEN Rule 2: IF is , THEN with we let ,  , , , , , and we can obtain By using the delay-dependent criterion Theorem 3 of [20], we can obtain when . And applying our result, is obtained. We can see that our results is not conservative since is much smaller than the result of [20].

Example 3. Consider a delayed fuzzy system of the following form.
Plant Rules:
Rule 1: IF is , THEN Rule 2: IF is , THEN with The membership function is The initial state is First, we should find the allowable maximum time delay which let the fuzzy system passive. Table 1 shows the maximum time delay obtained by [21] and our method.
It clearly shows that the method in our paper can get larger upper bound than before. It also shows that conservatism is further reduced when increases.
Then we let , , and we can obtain The fuzzy controller gains by our method are given by Figure 3 shows the state response of the closed-loop system with the controller gains in (58), and Figure 4 shows the state response of the closed-loop system.
