Dissipativity Analysis and Synthesis for a Class of Nonlinear Stochastic Impulsive Systems
The dissipativity analysis and control problems for a class of nonlinear stochastic impulsive systems (NSISs) are studied. The systems are subject to the nonlinear disturbance, stochastic disturbance, and impulsive effects, which often exist in a wide variety of industrial processes and the sources of instability. Our aim is to analyse the dissipativity and to design the state-feedback controller and impulsive controller based on the dissipativity such that the nonlinear stochastic impulsive systems are stochastic stable and strictly -dissipative. The sufficient conditions are obtained in terms of linear matrix inequality (LMI), and a numerical example with simulation is given to show the correctness of the derived results and the effectiveness of the proposed method.
As we all know that many real-world systems may be disturbed by stochastic factors. Thus, stochastic differential systems appear as a natural description of many observed phenomena of real world. In the past few years, much research effort has paid to the stability analysis and robust control problems for stochastic systems which have been come to play an important role in many fields including population dynamics, macroeconomics, chemical reactor control, communication network, image processes, and mobile robot localization. So far, plenty of significant results also have been published; see, for example, [1–8] and the references therein.
Recent years, there are many real-world systems and natural processes which display some kind of dynamic behavior in a style of both continuous and discrete characteristics; we called “impulsive effects,” which exist widely in many evolution process, particularly some biological system such as biological neural networks and bursting rhythm models in pathology as well as optimal control models in economics, frequency-modulated signal processing system, fly object motions, and so on [9, 10]. Impulsive dynamical systems are characterized by the occurrence of abrupt changes in the state of the system occurring at certain time instants. The stability and control problems of impulsive dynamical systems have attracted considerable interest in science and engineering during the past decades including stability analysis of stochastic impulsive systems or with time delay [11–14], robust control of impulsive systems with time delay [15, 16], and robust control and filtering of stochastic impulsive systems with time delay .
On the other hand, since the notation of dissipative dynamical system was introduced by Willems , dissipative systems have been of particular interest to researchers in areas of systems, circuits, networks, control, and so forth. Now, dissipative theory has wide-ranging implications and applications in control theory. For instance, dissipativeness was crucially used in the stability analysis of nonlinear system , and the theory of dissipative systems generalizes basic tools including the passivity theory, bounded real lemma, Kalman Yakubovich lemma, and the circle criterion . Among the relevant topics are the passivity analysis and synthesis for time-delay systems [21, 22]. These results show that the passivity-based methods are highly effective in designing the robust controller.
The stability and stabilization [11–13, 19, 23], controllability , robust control [15, 16, 20, 22], robust filtering , and reliable dissipative control  problems have been extensively studied. However, the dissipative analysis and synthesis for nonlinear stochastic impulsive system have not been fully discussed and remains challenging. In this paper, we mainly study the dissipativity analysis and control problems for a class of nonlinear stochastic impulsive systems (NSISs). The systems are subject to the nonlinear disturbance, stochastic disturbance, and impulsive effects, which often exist in a wide variety of industrial processes and the sources of instability. Here, our aim is to analysis the dissipativity and to design the state-feedback controller and impulsive controller based on the dissipativity such that the nonlinear stochastic impulsive systems are stochastic stable and strictly -dissipative.

4. Main Results and Proofs
4.1. Dissipativity Analysis of NSISs
For dissipativity analysis for NSISs, we treat the free systems as follows:
Theorem 5. Given a real matrix , the positive matrices , and a negative semidefinite matrix , if there exist a scalar and a positive definite matrix , such that the following inequalities hold: where . Then the NSISs in (10) are stochastic stable and strictly -dissipative.
Proof. Construct a simple Lyapunov function as follows:
For , , according to the Itô formula, along with the solution of systems in (10), we have
Applying (3)–(5), we get that
So where By Lemma 3, if (17) holds, then (11) holds. Since , there exists a sufficient small such that . Together with (11), we have
In the following section, we firstly consider the stability of NSISs in (10). Setting , by (11) and Lemma 4, we have which leads to where .
Applying Dynkin formula and Grownwall-Bellman inequality, together with (21), for , , we have
By Lemma 4 and (10), it follows that For , it follows from (22) and (23) that which leads to Hence, for , it follows from (22)–(25) that
We know that
In summary, we obtain that where ; let , and we have
Therefore, we get
Then, there exists a constant , such that
Hence, the NSISs in (10) are stochastic stable.
Secondly, we consider the -dissipativity of NSISs in (10). When , setting , from (11) and (12), we have
So it follows that (8) holds; thus the NSISs in (10) are strictly -dissipative according to Definition 2. The proof is complete.
Remark 6. From (12), we see that is not a LMI; it is difficult to obtain the feasible solution, so by schur complement lemma, which is implied by a matrix inequality,
4.2. State-Feedback Dissipative Control of NSISs
Theorem 7. Given a real matrix , a positive definite matrices and a negative semidefinite matrix , if there exist a scalar , and three matrices , , and , such that the following linear matrices inequalities (LMIs) have a feasible solution, then the NSISs in (34) are stochastic stable and strictly -dissipative, the feedback gain is , and the impulsive controller gain is , where , , .
Proof. For NSISs in (34), applying Theorem 5 and Lemma 3, we have
Applying the congruent transformation and , to (37) and (33), respectively, introducing the linearization , and using , , LMIs (35) and (36) hold. The proof is complete.
Remark 8. When , , and , strictly -dissipative reduces to the performance level. When , , and , strictly -dissipative reduces to the strictly passivity.
Remark 9. If , then let , which means that there is no need for any impulsive controller for NSIS (1). If , then choose appropriate such that , which means that there is need of impulsive controller with gain for NSISs in (1).
Corollary 10. If there exist a scalar and three matrices , , and , such that the inequalities and (36) have a feasible solution, then the NSISs in (34) are stochastic stable with performance level, and the feedback gain is .
Corollary 11. If there exist a scalar and three matrices , , and , such that the inequalities and (36) have a feasible solution, then the NSISs (34) are stochastic strictly passive, and the feedback gain is .
