Detectability LMI[edit]

Detectability is a weaker version of observability. A system is detectable if all unstable modes of the system are observable, whereas observability requires all modes to be observable. This implies that if a system is observable it will also be detectable. The LMI condition to determine detectability of the pair is shown below.

The Data[edit]

The LMI: Detectability LMI[edit]

is detectable if and only if there exists such that



If we are able to find such that the above LMI holds it means the matrix pair is detectable. In words, a system pair is detectable if the unobservable states asymptotically approach the origin. This is a weaker condition than observability since observability requires that all initial states must be able to be uniquely determined in a finite time interval given knowledge of the input and output .


This implementation requires Yalmip and Sedumi.
