# Robust observer design for switched positive linear system with uncertainties.

1. IntroductionThe switched system is a type of hybrid dynamical system, which is composed of several subsystems and a switching law [1]. The switching law governs the switches between subsystems. The switched positive system is a special kind of switched system, whose state and output are nonnegative whenever the initial state and input are nonnegative. In practice, many systems can be modeled as switched positive systems, such as communication system [2], formation flying [3], and viral mutation [4].

Recently, the switched positive system has attracted a lot of attention. As the stability and stabilization problems are basic problems for control systems, the obtained results mainly focus on them [5-11]. Most of the obtained results are sufficient conditions. However, it should be pointed out that Benzaouia and Tadeo proposed the necessary and sufficient condition for the existence of a stabilization controller [12]. In practice, system state may not be measurable. In this case, the problem of building a state observer for switched system is very significant. Considerable attention has been devoted to this problem. In [13], the observers were designed by using the common Lyapunov function and the multiple Lyapunov function, respectively. In [14], an effective method was used to build an observer for the switched linear system with state jumps. Taking uncertainties into account, Xiang et al. designed a robust observer for the switched nonlinear system [15]. However, since the state of switched positive system is positive, the state observer must also be positive. The straightforward application of the above methods to the switched positive system may result in meaningless results [16]. Thus, the state of observer should be restricted to be positive. Rami et al. designed positive observers for the linear continuous positive system [17] and the linear discrete positive system [18]. In [19, 20], a positive observer was built for the positive system with time delays. For the positive linear system with interval uncertainties, Shu et al. proposed necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of a positive observer. Furthermore, these conditions were described by system matrices. Hence complex matrix decomposition was avoided [21]. Although these results are concerned with the positive system observers, they also contribute to the design of switched positive system observers.

In practice, switched systems are commonly subjected to time delays which have great impacts on the performances of systems. Some published papers have discussed time delay in detail [22-25]. Besides, model uncertainties universally exist in systems and may deteriorate the performances of systems. Thus, the state observer should be robust to model uncertainties. In [26, 27], two different methods were proposed to deal with the polytypic uncertainty. In [28], a robust observer was built for the switching discrete system with uncertainties. Furthermore, by introducing slack variables, the obtained results were presented in form of LMI.

This paper focuses on the robust state observer of switched positive system with uncertainties and time-varying delay. The main contributions of this paper are summarized as follows. (1) Taking model uncertainties into account, the robust observer is obtained; (2) the sufficient conditions of building a robust observer are proposed in form of LMI; (3) the designed state observer is positive.

The rest of this paper is organized as follows. Some necessary definitions and lemmas are introduced in Section 2. In Section 3, a robust positive observer is designed for the switched positive linear system. In Section 4, a numerical example is given. The conclusions are presented in Section 5.

2. Problem Statements and Preliminaries

Consider the following switched linear system:

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII], (1)

where x(t) [member of] [R.sup.n] is the system state; d(t) denotes time-varying delay; y(t) is the output of system; u(t) [??] 0 is the control input; a(t) [member of] [m.bar] is the switching law which is a piecewise continuous function; [phi](t) [??] 0 is the continuous vector-valued initial function; [tau] and d are known positive constants; the model uncertainties [DELTA][A.sub.[sigma](t)] and [DELTA][B.sub.[sigma](t)] are norm bounded, described by [[DELTA][A.sub.[sigma](t)] [DELTA][B.sub.[sigma](t)]] = [D.sub.[sigma](t)][G.sub.[sigma](t)] [[E.sub.[sigma](t)1] [E.sub.[sigma](t)]2]; [G.sub.[sigma](t)] is unknown matrix satisfying [G.sup.T.sub.[sigma](t)][G.sub.[sigma](t)] [less than or equal to] I; [D.sub.[sigma](t)], [E.sub.[sigma](t)1], and [E.sub.[sigma](t)2] are known matrices; [A.sub.[sigma](t)] [member of] M, [B.sub.[sigma](t)] [??] 0, [F.sub.[sigma](t)] [??] 0, and [C.sub.[sigma](t)] [??] 0 are known system matrices with appropriate dimensions; besides, ([A.sub.[sigma](t)] + [DELTA][A.sub.[sigma](t)]) [member of] M, ([B.sub.[sigma](t)] + [DELTA][B.sub.[sigma](t)]) [??] 0.

Next, some necessary definitions and lemmas are introduced.

Definition 1. For any initial state [x.sub.0] [??] 0 and u(t) [??] 0, if the corresponding trajectories x(t) [??] 0 and y(t) [??] 0 hold for t [greater than or equal to] 0, then the system (1) is called switched positive linear system [5].

Definition 2. If there exist positive constants [alpha] > 0 and [beta] > 0 such that

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII], (2)

then the system (1) is globally uniformly exponentially stable (GUES) under switching law [sigma](t) [16].

Definition 3. For T [greater than or equal to] t [greater than or equal to] 0, let [N.sub.[sigma](t)](t,T) denote the switching number of [sigma](t) over (t, T]. If

[N.sub.[sigma](t)] (t, T) [less than or equal to] [N.sub.0] + T - t/[[tau].sub.a] (3)

holds for [[tau].sub.a] [greater than or equal to] 0 and an integer [N.sub.0] [greater than or equal to] 0, then [[tau].sub.a] is called the average dwell time (ADT) [6].

Assumption 4. The state trajectory of system (1) is continuous everywhere. In other words, state variable does not jump at switching instants.

Lemma5. System (1) is positive if and only if ([A.sub.[sigma](t)] + [DELTA][A.sub.[sigma](t)]) [member of] M, ([B.sub.[sigma](t)] + [DELTA][B.sub.[sigma](t)]) [??] 0, u(t) [??] [degrees], [x.sub.0] [??] 0, [F.sub.[sigma](t)] [??] 0, and [C.sub.[sigma](t)] [??] 0 hold for [sigma](t) [member of] [m.bar] [16].

Lemma 6 (see [16]). For matrices D and E and symmetric matrix Y, Y + DFE + [E.sup.T][F.sup.T][D.sup.T] < 0 holds for [F.sup.T]F [less than or equal to] I if and only if there exists a positive constant e such that

Y + [epsilon]D[D.sup.T] + [[epsilon].sup.-1][E.sup.T]E < 0. (4)

3. Robust Observer Design

In this section, we focus on the design of a robust observer for system (1). According to the structure of system (1), the desired observer is written as

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII], (5)

or, equivalently,

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII], (6)

where [??](t) and [??](t) denote the state and output of observer, respectively, and [H.sub.[sigma](t)] is the gain matrix to be determined.

According to Lemma 5 and the given conditions, system (1) is a switched positive linear system. Since the state of system (1) is positive, the desired observer is required to be positive. Thus, [H.sub.[sigma](t)] should satisfies the following conditions:

([A.sub.[sigma](t)] - [H.sub.[sigma](t)][C.sub.[sigma](t)]) [member of] M for [sigma] (t) [member of] [m.bar], (7a)

[H.sub.[sigma](t)][C.sub.[sigma](t)] [??] 0 for [sigma] (t) [member of] [m.bar]. (7b)

Define [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]. From 1) and (6), error system (8) is obtained as follows:

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]. (8)

Define

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]. (9)

From (1) and (8), the augmented system (10) is obtained as follows:

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]. (10)

Let [[bar.D].sup.T.sub.[sigma](t)] = [[D.sup.T.sub.[sigma](t)] [D.sup.T.sub.[sigma](t)]], [[bar.G].sub.[sigma](t)] = [G.sub.[sigma](t)], [E.sub.[sigma](t)1] = [[E.sub.[sigma](t)1] 0], and [[bar.E].sub.[sigma](t)2] = [[E.sub.[sigma](t)2] 0].

Consequently,

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]. (11)

Remark 7. According to Lemma 5, if conditions (7a) and (7b) hold, then system (6) is positive. Furthermore, if system (10) is stable, then [??](t) is converged to zero. This fact implies that the state of system (6) is also converged to state of system (1). Then, system (6) is a positive observer of system (1). Therefore we should choose appropriate Ha(t) such that (a) the conditions (7a) and (7b) are satisfied and (b) the system (10) is stable.

Next, we propose two lemmas which are utilized to build an observer for system (1).

Lemma 8. For given constants [lambda] > 0 and [tau] [greater than or equal to] 0, if there exist symmetric positive definition matrices [Q.sub.p], [P.sub.p], and [R.sub.p], matrix Hp, and positive scalar e such that

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII], (12)

then

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII], (13)

where

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]. (14)

Proof. Introduce a new matrix Y which is written as

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]. (15)

According to Schur complement, (12) is equivalent to

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]. (16)

By Lemma 6, 16) is equivalent to

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]. (17)

Consequently,

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]. (18)

Therefore (13) holds. This completes the proof.

Note the following problems in Lemma 8. (a) Inequality (12) includes [Q.sub.p][[bar.A].sub.p] which involves product terms between [H.sub.p] and [Q.sub.p]; (b) [[epsilon].sup.-1] also exists in inequality (12). Thus, inequality (12) is not a LMI. We propose Lemma 9 to deal with these problems.

Lemma 9. For given constants [lambda] > 0 and [tau] [greater than or equal to] 0, inequality (12) holds for p [member of] [m.bar] if there exist symmetric positive definition matrices [Q.sub.p], [P.sub.p], and [R.sub.p], matrix [T.sub.p], and positive scalars a and h such that

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII], (19)

where

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]. (20)

Proof. Since a > 0,

[(a - b).sup.2] [a.sup.-1] [greater than or equal to] 0. (21)

It follows that

a - 2b [greater than or equal to] -b[a.sup.-1]b. (22)

Applying (22) to (19), we have

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]. (23)

Premultiplying diag [I, I, I, [b.sup.-1], I} and postmultiplying diag [I, I, I, [b.sup.-1], 1} to (23) yield

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]. (24)

Let a = [[epsilon].sup.-1] and let [T.sub.p] = [Q.sub.p][[bar.A].sub.p]. Then, (24) is equivalent to (12). This completes the proof.

Remark 10. In the proof of Lemma 9, the matrix variable [T.sub.p] is employed to replace the term of [Q.sub.p][[bar.A].sub.p] which involves [Q.sub.p][H.sub.p]. The slack scalar b is used to decouple the product terms brought in by [[epsilon].sup.-1]. By this way, inequality (12) is transformed into a standard LMI.

Now, Theorem 11 is proposed for building a robust positive observer.

Theorem 11. For given constants [lambda] > 0, [tau] [greater than or equal to] 0, and [rho] [greater than or equal to] 1, if there exist symmetric positive definition matrices [Q.sub.p], [P.sub.p], and [R.sub.p], matrix [T.sub.p], and positive scalars a and b such that

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII], (25a)

[([A.sub.p]).sub.i,j] - [([H.sub.p][C.sub.p]).sub.i,j] > 0, [([H.sub.p][C.sub.p]).sub.k,l] > 0 for P [member of] [m.bar]; i, j, k, l [member of] [n.bar]; i [not equal to] j, (25b)

[Q.sub.i] [less than or equal to] [rho][Q.sub.j], [P.sub.i] [less than or equal to] [rho][P.sub.j], [R.sub.i] [less than or equal to] [rho][R.sub.j] for i, j [member of] m, (25c)

and the ADT satisfies

[[tau].sub.a] > ln [rho]/[lambda], (26)

then system (10) is GUES with an ADT (26) and system (6) is the desired robust positive observer, where [([A.sub.p]).sub.i,j] and [([H.sub.p][C.sub.p]).sub.i,j] represent the elements in ith row and jth column of [A.sub.p] and ([H.sub.p][C.sub.p]), respectively.

Proof. The proof of Theorem 11 is divided into two parts. We prove that (I) system (10) is stable and (II) system (6) is a positive observer of system (1).

(I) System (10) is stable.

Construct multiple copositive Lyapunov-Krasovskii function for system (10) as follows:

[V.sub.[sigma](t)] (t) = [V.sub.[sigma](t),1] (t) + [V.sub.[sigma](t),2] (t) + [V.sub.[sigma](t),3] (t), (27)

where

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]. (28)

Assume that the pth subsystem is activated over t [member of] [[t.sub.k], [t.sub.k+1]). Let [t.sub.k] represent the instant of the Kth switching and let [t.sup.-.sub.k] denote the instant just before [t.sub.k].

Take the derivatives of [V.sub.p,1](t), [V.sub.p,2](t), and [V.sub.p,3](t) with respect to t along the trajectory of system (10) on t [member of] [[t.sub.k], [t.sub.k+1]).

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII], (29)

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII], (30)

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]. (31)

According to Jensen inequality and (31),

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]. (32)

Noting (29), (30), and (32), hence,

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]. (33)

We derive from Lemma 8, Lemma 9,(33), (25a), and (25c) that

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]. (34)

By iterative calculation, we have

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]. (35)

Define [K.sub.1] = [max.sub.p [member of] [m.bar]][lambda]([Q.sub.p]), [K.sub.2] = [max.sub.p [member of] [m.bar]][lambda]([P.sub.p]), [K.sub.3] = [max.sub.p [member of] [m.bar]][lambda]([R.sub.p]), and [K.sub.4] = [max.sub.p [member of] [m.bar]][lambda]([Q.sub.p]), where [lambda]([Q.sub.p]) represents all eigenvalues of [Q.sub.p]:

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]. (36)

Note that [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]; hence,

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]. (37)

It is derived from (35), (37), and the definition of [V.sub.[sigma](t)](t) that

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]. (38)

Consequently,

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]. (39)

Let [alpha] = ([K.sub.1] + [tau][K.sub.2] + [[tau].sub.2][K.sub.3])/[K.sub.0] and [beta] = [lambda] - (ln [rho]/[[tau].sub.a]). Obviously, [alpha] > 0. Since [[tau].sub.a] > (ln [rho]/[lambda]), [beta] > 0. According to Definition 2, system (10) is GUES with an ADT (26). Hence the estimated state converges to state of system (1). In other words, system (6) is an observer for system (1).

(II) System (6) is a positive observer of system (1).

Since [([A.sub.p]).sub.i,j] - [([H.sub.p][C.sub.p]).sub.i,j] > 0 for p [member of] [m.bar]; i, j [member of] [n.bar]; i [not equal to] j, [A.sub.p] - ([H.sub.p][C.sub.p]) [member of] M. Furthermore, [([H.sub.p][C.sub.p]).sub.k,l] > 0 for k, l [member of] [n.bar] implies that ([H.sub.p][C.sub.p]) [??] 0. Hence system (6) is a positive system.

Synthesizing (I) and (II), system (6) is the desired robust positive observer for system (1). This completes the proof of Theorem 11.

Remark 12. [T.sub.p] and [Q.sub.p] can be obtained by solving (25a). Since [T.sub.p] = [Q.sub.p][[bar.A].sub.p], Hp can be obtained. If [H.sub.p] satisfies (25b), then [H.sub.p] meets all requirements of design. By this way, the desired robust positive observer is built for system (1).

Remark 13. Note the following problems. (a) Since the conditions (7a) and (7b) are not strictly positive, they are not strict LMI; (b) under the conditions (7a) and (7b), the state and output of system maybe always zero; in this case, the obtained result may be useless for engineering practice. Considering these problems, the conditions are replaced by (25b) which is a strict LMI.

4. Numerical Example

A numerical example is given to illustrate the validity of the obtained result in this section.

Consider the switched positive linear system with uncertainties and time-varying delay given by

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII], (40)

where

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII], (41)

Let [lambda] = 0.5 and let [rho] = 1.1. We have [[tau].sub.a] > 0.1906 from (26). Solving the LMI (25a), we have

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII], (42)

where

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]. (43)

Noting that

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]. (44)

then

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]. (45)

Consequently,

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]. (46)

Since [H.sub.1] and [H.sub.2] meet all requirements of the design, the design of state observer for system (40) is completed.

The simulation results are shown in Figures 1-3. From them, we can find the following facts.

(1) In Figure 1, it is easy to get that ADT = 1.4286 > 0.1906.

(2) In Figure 2, the state of observer approximates the state of original system. This fact is also revealed by Figure 3 in which the state of error system exponentially converges to zero.

(3) The state of observer is positive all the time.

Therefore, the numerical example illustrates the validity of the proposed method.

5. Conclusions

The design of a robust observer for the switched positive linear system has been investigated in this paper.

(1) In the presence of model uncertainties, the sufficient conditions for the existence of a positive observer are proposed in form of LMI.

(2) The state of observer is positive and converges to the state of original system.

(3) In the future study, the significant task is to investigate fault detection for switched positive linear system with uncertainties based on state observer.
