Robust stability analysis of filtered Smith predictor for time-varying delay processes
This paper focuses on the robust stability analysis of the filtered Smith predictor (FSP) dead-time compensator for uncertain processes with time-varying delays. For this purpose, a delay-dependent LMI-based condition is used to compute a maximum delay interval and tolerance to model uncertainties such that the closed-loop system remains stable. Some simulation results illustrate that the proposed controller gives larger delays intervals or better performance than similar approaches proposed in literature applied both to stable and unstable processes.
