Stability Analysis of Uncertain Nonlinear Systems with High-Gain Observers

Based on the Lyapunov stability theorem, a modified stability analysis as well as a modified observer is proposed in this thesis for a class of uncertain nonlinear systems with an existent high gain observer. By assuming that the first two state variables are indirectly measurable, reanalyzing the stability of the error dynamics is presented first. The advantage of this modified analytic method is that the upper bound of the disturbance distribution functions is not required to be known in advance, and the asymptotic stability is still guaranteed. Next, based on this existent observer, a slightly modified observer is presented for systems with disturbances whose upper bound is unknown. An adaptive mechanism is embedded in the proposed observer, so that the upper bound of perturbations is not required to be known beforehand. The resultant dynamics of estimation errors can be driven into the sliding surface in a finite time, and guarantee asymptotic stability. A numerical example and a practical example are given to demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed observer.
