Sliding controller design for nonlinear systems. (English) Zbl 0541.93034
Summary: New results are presented on the sliding control methodology introduced by J. J. Slotine and S. S. Sastry [Int. J. Control 38, 465- 492 (1983; Zbl 0519.93036)] to achieve accurate tracking for a class of nonlinear time-varying multivariable systems in the presence of disturbances and parameter variations. An explicit trade-off is obtained between tracking precision and robustness to modelling uncertainty: tracking accuracy is set according to the extent of parametric uncertainty and the frequency range of unmodelled dynamics. The trade-off is further refined to account for time-dependence of model uncertainty.
