Interval state observer for nonlinear time varying systems
This paper is devoted to the design of interval observers for Linear Time Varying (LTV) systems and a class of nonlinear time-varying systems in the output canonical form. An interval observer design is feasible if it is possible to calculate the observer gains making the estimation error dynamics cooperative and stable. It is shown that under some mild conditions the cooperativity of an LTV system can be ensured by a static linear transformation of coordinates. The efficiency of the proposed approach is demonstrated through numerical simulations.
