Abstract [en]

In this paper, we study the global robust stabilization problem of strict feedforward systems subject to input unmodeled dynamics. We present a recursive design method for a nested saturation controller which globally stabilizes the closed-loop system in the presence of input unmodeled dynamics. One of the difficulties of the problem is that the Jacobian linearization of our system at the origin may not be stabilizable. We overcome this difficulty by employing a special version of the small gain theorem to address the local stability, and, respectively, the asymptotic small gain theorem to establish the global convergence property, of the closed-loop system An example is given to show that a redesign of the controller is required to guarantee the global robust asymptotic stability in the presence of the input unmodeled dynamics.
