Structurally variable control of time-varying Lurie systems
This poses and solves the problem of structurally variable control synthesis for time-varying Lurie systems, which has both theoretical and engineering significance. A theorem on absolute stability of a set related to Lurie systems solves the problem. The theorem is basic for proving control algorithms that ensure absolute stability of a sliding subspace or its stability with finite reachability time. Moreover, they ensure the attraction in the whole of the zero equilibrium state of the whole control system of the plant on N(L). The selection of the sliding subspace can be such that the system nonlinearity does not influence the sliding motion.
