Abstract

This paper presents a connection between dissipation inequalities and integral quadratic constraints (IQCs) for robustness analysis of uncertain discrete-time systems. Traditional IQC results derived from homotopy methods emphasize an operator-theoretic input–output viewpoint. In contrast, the dissipativity-based IQC approach explicitly incorporates the internal states of the uncertain system, thus providing a more direct procedure to analyze uniform stability with non-zero initial states. The standard dissipation inequality requires a non-negative definite storage function and ‘hard’ IQCs. The term ‘hard’ means that the IQCs must hold over all finite time horizons. This paper presents a modified dissipation inequality that requires neither non-negative definite storage functions nor hard IQCs. This approach leads to linear matrix inequality conditions that can provide less conservative results in terms of robustness analysis. The proof relies on a key J-spectral factorization lemma for IQC multipliers. A simple numerical example is provided to demonstrate the utility of the modified dissipation inequality.
