Abstract : This paper proposes a sequential design scheme for switching H∞ LPV (Linear Parameter-Varying) control, aiming to reduce the computational complexity of the associated optimization problem. Different from the traditional approach that simultaneously designs switching LPV controllers and solves a high-dimensional optimization problem, the proposed sequential design approach renders a bundle of low-dimensional optimization
problems to be solved iteratively. Individual H∞ LPV controller for each subregion is synthesized by independent PLMIs (Parametric Linear Matrix Inequalities) to guarantee H∞ performance, and controller variables are interpolated on the overlapped subregions such that the H∞ performance is also guaranteed on the overlapped subregion. Numerical examples are used to demonstrate the effectiveness of this method to reduce the computational load in each design iteration and improved H∞ performance over the conventional simultaneous design method with well-tuned interpolation coefficient.
