Abstract : "This paper presents a state observer for linear systems and Lipschitz nonlinear systems with delayed
output measurements, which are affected by a known and bounded time-varying delay. The structure of the proposed
observer is based on a proportional-integral term, which allows to compensate the time-varying delay. The observer
gain depends on the maximum bounded delay. This gain is computed by a Linear Matrix Inequality (LMI) approach.
The observer exhibits good performance for state estimation of the system despite the presence of significantly long
delay. A Lyapunov-Krasovskii functional is used to prove the asymptotical convergence to zero of the observation
error. This observer is applied to the case of systems with time-varying delay whose dynamic is described by a
piecewise differentiable function. Examples and numerical simulations are provided in order to support the validity
of the main results."
