Global Stabilization of Discrete-Time Linear Systems Subject to Input Saturation and Time Delay
This article studies the problem of global stabilization of discrete-time linear systems subject to input saturation and time delay. The considered time-delay systems are first transformed into delay-free systems based on prediction technique. Then, by utilizing saturation functions technique, the corresponding global stabilizing controllers are proposed for two special discrete-time linear systems-a chain of integrators and oscillators, and explicit conditions guaranteeing stability are also given. Both current and delayed feedback information are utilized in the controller design, and some free parameters are also introduced into these controllers. These advantages can help improve the control performance significantly. Subsequently, a systematic control design procedure for globally stabilizing general discrete-time linear systems subject to multiple inputs and/or multiple inputs delays is proposed. The design procedure is in an explicit and recursive way with explicit conditions guaranteeing stability being given, and thus is easier to use than the existing one. Finally, the effectiveness of the proposed approaches are illustrated by three numerical examples.
