In the general framework of hydraulic servo systems, this paper addresses the problem of position control in the presence of important friction nonlinearities. The accent falls on the variable structure methodology, as we try to use its intrinsic robustness properties. Several friction observers,...
This paper focuses on the design of an output feedback sliding mode regulator able to achieve the asymptotic tracking of a reference trajectory for nonlinear systems. It is assumed that the reference trajectory is generated by means of a neutrally stable unforced system (exosystem) whose state is...
