Abstract

This paper develops a robust gain-scheduled proportional–integral–derivative (PID) controller design method for a linear-parameter-varying (LPV) system with parametric uncertainty. It is recognized in the literature that the robust fixed-order controller design can be formulated as a feasibility problem of a bilinear matrix inequality (BMI) constraint. Unfortunately, the search for a feasible solution of a BMI constraint is an NP hard problem in general. Previous researchers have applied a linearization method, such as a variable change technique or a congruence transformation, to transform the BMI into a LMI. The applicability of the linearization method depends on the specific structure of the problem at hand and cannot be generalized. This paper instead formulates the gain-scheduled PID controller design as a feasibility problem of a quadratic matrix inequality (QMI) constraint, which covers the BMI constraint as a special case. An augmented sequential LMI optimization method is proposed to search for a feasible solution of the QMI constraint iteratively. As an illustrative application, a vehicle lateral control problem is presented to demonstrate the applicability of the proposed algorithm to a real-world output feedback control design system.
