In this paper, a new value set based approach is presented to study the robust stability of a fractional order plant with parametric uncertainty of the interval type by using a fractional order proportional integral controller. The concept of interval uncertainty means that the parameters of the system transfer functions are uncertain parameters that each adopts a value in a real interval. Based on the zero exclusion principle, it is necessary to check whether the value set of the characteristic polynomial for the infinite frequency range [Formula: see text] includes the origin or not. To this end, in this paper, an auxiliary function is defined. The sign of this auxiliary function within a finite frequency range verifies whether the origin is included in the value set of the characteristic polynomial or not. The upper bound and the lower bound of this finite frequency range are obtained using the triangle inequality. Finally, the results of the numerical examples are provided, which confirm the effectiveness of the paper results.
In this paper, some commonly used model reduction methods for integer-order systems are employed to approximate commensurate fractional-order linear systems. In comparison with the original system, the approximating model possesses a smaller inner dimension, while its fractional order is the same as that of the original system. The applied methods fall into the global reduction category, such as direct truncation and singular perturbation methods, and into the local reduction category, such as Pade approximation, partial realization, shifted Pade approximation, and rational interpolation methods. The applicability of these methods is illustrated by approximating a sample high-dimensional, commensurate, fractional-order, linear system.
scite is a Brooklyn-based organization that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students and researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
