Time-Varying Sampled-Data Observer With Asynchronous Measurements
In this paper, a time-varying observer for a linear continuous-time plant with asynchronous sampled measurements is proposed. The observer is contextualized in the hybrid systems framework providing an elegant setting for the proposed solution. In particular, some theoretical tools are provided, in terms of linear matrix inequalities (LMIs), certifying asymptotic stability of a certain compact set where the estimation error is zero. We consider sampled asynchronous measurements that occur at arbitrary times in a certain window with an upper and lower bound. The design procedure, that we propose for the selection of the time-varying gain, is based on a constructive algorithm that is guaranteed to find a solution to an infinite-dimensional LMI whenever a feasible solution exists.
