Abstract : "This paper addresses the problem of observer-based stabilization of discrete-time linear systems in presence of parameter uncertainties and ℓ2-bounded disturbances. We propose a new variant of the classical two-step
LMI approach. In the first step, we use a slack variable technique to solve the optimization problem resulting from stabilization by a static state feedback. In the second step, a part of the slack variable obtained is incorporated in the H∞ observer-based stabilization problem, to calculate simultaneously the Lyapunov matrix and the observer-based controller gains. The effectiveness of the proposed design methodology is demonstrated using the dynamic model of a quadruple-tank flow process system. Additional numerical illustrations are presented to show the superiority of the proposed Modified Two-Step Method (MTSM) from a LMI feasibility point of view."
