Stability of Impulsive Systems Driven by Renewal Processes
Source: University of California
Necessary and sufficient conditions are provided for stochastic stability and mean exponential stability of impulsive systems with jumps triggered by a renewal process, that is, the intervals between jumps are independent and identically distributed. The conditions for stochastic stability can be efficiently tested in terms of the feasibility of a set of LMIs or in terms of an algebraic test. The relation between the different stability notions for this class of systems is also discussed. The results are illustrated through their application to the stability analysis of networked control systems. The authors present two benchmark examples for which one can guarantee stability for inter-sampling times roughly twice as large as in a previous paper.
