Stabilizability LMI

A system is stabilizable if all unstable modes of the system are controllable. This implies that if the system is controllable, it will also be stabilizable. Thus, stabilizability is a essentially a weaker version of the controllability condition. The LMI condition for stabilizability of pair is shown below.

The Data[edit | edit source]

The matrices necessary for this LMI are and . There is no restriction on the stability of A.

The LMI: Stabilizability LMI[edit | edit source]

is stabilizable if and only if there exists such that


where the stabilizing controller is given by


Conclusion:[edit | edit source]

If we are able to find such that the above LMI holds it means the matrix pair is stabilizable. In words, a system pair is stabilizable if for any initial state an appropriate input can be found so that the state asymptotically approaches the origin. Stabilizability is a weaker condition than controllability in that we only need to approach as whereas controllability requires that the state must reach the origin in a finite time.

Implementation[edit | edit source]

This implementation requires Yalmip and Sedumi.
