nonlinear control, piecewise bilinear model, robust control, look-up-table controller

We propose the stabilization of nonlinear control systems approximated by Piecewise Bilinear (PB) models. The approximated model is fully parametric and a Look-Up-Table (LUT) represents its controller. Input-Output (I/O) feedback linearization is applied to stabilize PB control systems. We further propose PB modeling combined with conventional feedback linearization as a very powerful tool for analyzing and synthesizing nonlinear control systems. We also propose a method for designing robust stabilization controllers taking modeling error into consideration. Examples confirm the feasibility of our proposals.
