1 Control and Cybernetics vol 35 (2006) No 2 Stability criteria for large-scale time-delay systems: the LMI approach and the Genetic Algorithms by Jenq-Der Chen Department of Electronic Engineering National Kinmen Institute of Technology Jinning, Kinmen, Taiwan, 892, ROC Abstract: This paper addresses the asymptotic stability analysis problem for a class of linear large-scale systems with time delay in the state of each subsystem as well as in the interconnections Based on the Lyapunov stability theory, a delay-dependent criterion for stability analysis of the systems is derived in terms of a linear matri inequality (LMI) Finally, a numerical eample is given to demonstrate the validity of the proposed result Keywords: delay-dependent criterion, large-scale systems, linear matri inequality, genetic algorithms 1 Introduction Time delay naturally arises in the processing of information transmission between subsystems and its eistence is frequently the main source of instability and oscillation in many important systems Many practical control applications are encountered, involving the phenomena in question, including electrical power systems, nuclear reactors, chemical process control systems, transportation systems, computer communication, economic systems, etc Hence, the stability analysis problem for time-delay systems has received considerable attention (Kim, 2001; Kolmanovskii and Myshkis, 1992; Kwon and Park, 2004; Li and De Souza, 1997; Niculescu, 2001; Park, 1999; Richard, 2003; Su et al, 2001) In the recent years, the problem of stability analysis for large-scale systems with or without time delay has been etensively studied by a number of authors Moreover, depending on whether the stability criterion itself contains the delay argument as a parameter, stability criteria for systems can be usually classified into two categories, namely the delay-independent criteria (Hmamed, 1986; Huang et al, 1995; Lyou et al, 1984; Michel and Miller, 1977; Schoen and Geering, 1995; Siljak, 1978; Wang et al, 1991) and the delay-dependent criterion (Tsay et al, 1996) In general, the latter ones are less conservative than

2 292 J-D CHEN the former ones, but the former ones are also important when the effect of time delay is small However, there are few papers to derive the delay-dependent and delay-independent stability criteria for a class of large-scale systems with time delays, to my knowledge This has motivated my study In this paper, delay-independent and delay-dependent criteria for such systems can be derived to guarantee the asymptotic stability for large-scale systems with time-delays in the state of each subsystem as well as in the interconnections Appropriate model transformation of original systems is useful for the stability analysis of such systems, and some tuning parameters, which satisfy the constraint on an LMI can be easily obtained by the GAs technique A numerical eample is given to illustrate that the proposed result is useful The notation used throughout this paper is as follows We denote the set of all nonnegative real numbers by R, the set of all continuous functions from [ H, 0 to R n by C 0, the transpose of matri A (respectively, vector ) by A T (respectively T ), the symmetric positive (respectively, negative) definite by A>0 (respectively A<0) We denote identity matri by I and the set {1, 2,, N} by N 2 Main results Consider the following large-scale time-delay systems, which is composed of N interconnected subsystems S i, i N Each subsystem S i, i N is described as ẋ i (t) =A i i (t) A ij j (t h ij ), t 0, (1a) where i (t) is the state of each subsystem S i, i N, then, A i, A ij, i,j N are known constant matrices of appropriate dimensions, and h ij, i, j N, are nonnegative time delays in the state of each subsystems as well as in the interconnections The initial condition for each subsystem is given by i (t) =θ i (t), t [ H, 0, H=ma {h ij}, i,j N, (1b) i,j where θ i (t), i N is a continuous function on [ H, 0 A model transformation is constructed for the large-scale time-delay systems of the form: d [ [ i (t) B ij j (s)ds = A i i (t) B ij j (t) dt (A ij B ij ) j (t h ij ), (2) where B ij R ni nj, i, j N are some matrices that can be chosen by GAs such that the matri Āi = A i B ij, i, j H is Hurwitz

3 Stability criteria for large-scale time-delay systems 293 Now, we present a delay-dependent criterion for asymptotic stability of system (1) Theorem 21 The system (1) is asymptotically stable for any constant time delays h ij satisfying 0 h ij h ij, i, j N under the condition that Ā i are Hurwitz and there eist symmetric positive definite matrices P i, R ij, T ij, V ij, and W ijk, i, j, k N such that the following LMI condition holds: Ξ 11 Ξ12 Ξ13 Ξ14 Ξ15 Ξ T 12 Ξ Ξ = Ξ T 13 0 Ξ < 0 (3) Ξ T Ξ 44 0 Ξ T Ξ 55 where Ψ 1 B21 T P 2 P 1 B 12 BN1 T P N P 1 B 1N P 2 B 21 B12P T 1 Ψ2 BN2 T Ξ 11 = P N P 2 B 2N P M B N1 B1N T P 1 P N B N2 B2N T P 2 ΨN Ψ i = ĀT i P i P i Ā i [ hji R ji V ij h ki (T kji W kji ), ˇΞ 12 = diag(γ 1,, Γ N ), Γ i =[ hi1 A T i P i B i1 hin A T i P i B in,, ˇΞ 22 = diag(ˆγ 1,, ˆΓ N ), ˆΓi = diag(r i1,,r in ), ˇΞ 13 = diag(π 1,, Π N ), Π i =[Π i1 Π in, Π ki =[ hi1 Bik T P ib i1 hin Bik T P ib in, ˇΞ 33 = diag(ˆπ 1,, ˆΠ N ), ˆΠi = diag(ˆπ i1 ˆΠ in ), ˆΠ ki = diag(t ik1,,t ikn ), ˇΞ 14 = diag(λ 1,, Λ N ), Λ i =[(A 1i B 1i ) T P 1 (A Ni B Ni ) T P N, ˇΞ 44 = diag(ˆλ 1,, ˆΛ N ), ˆΛi = diag(v 1i,,V Ni ), ˇΞ 15 = diag(ω 1,, Ω N ), Ω i =[Ω i1 Ω in, Ω ki =[ hi1 (A ik B ik ) T P i B i1 hin (A ik B ik ) T P i B in, ˇΞ 55 = diag(ˆω 1,, ˆΩ N ), ˆΩi = diag(ˆω i1 ˆΩ in ), ˆΩ ki = diag(w ik1,,w ikn )

4 294 J-D CHEN Proof From the Schur Complements of Boyd et al (1994), the condition (3) is equivalent to the following inequality: Ξ( h, P i,r ij,t ijk,v ij,w ijk )= φ 1 ( h) B21 T P 2 P 1 B 12 BN1 T P N P 1 B 1N P 2 B 21 B12P T 1 φ 2 ( h) BN2 T P N P 2 B 2N P M B N1 B1N T P 1 P N B N2 B2N T P 2 φ N ( h) < 0 (4) where h denotes { h ij,i,j N}, and φ i ( h) =ĀT i P i P i Ā i [ hij A T i P ib ij Rij 1 BT ij P ia i h ji R ji (A ji B ji ) T P j V 1 ji P j (A ji B ji )V ij [ hjk Bjk T P jb jk T 1 jik BT jk P jb ji h ki T kji h jk (A ji B ji ) T P j B jk W 1 jik BT jk P j(a ji B ji ) h ki W kji The Lyapunov functional is given by V ( t )=V 1 ( t )V 2 ( t )V 3 ( t ), (5a) where V 1 ( t )= V 2 ( t )= L i ( t ) T P L i ( t ),L i ( t ) i=1 = i (t) B ij j (s)ds, i N (A ij B ij ) T P i (V 1 ij V 3 ( t )= T j (s)[(s t h ij) R ij (5b) h ik B ik W 1 ijk BT ik)p i (A ij B ij ) j (s)ds, (5c) t h ik (s t h ik ) T k (s)(t ijk W ijk ) k (s)ds, (5d)

8 298 J-D CHEN Remark 23 Suppose that for any chosen matri B ij = A ij, i, j N we have that the delay term A ij j (s)ds, i, j N, have been converted to the left side of the system (2) By the proof of Theorem 21, the corresponding matrices V ij,andw ijk, i, j, k N, could be chosen as zero matrices, and the LMI condition in (3) is reduced by its corresponding elements Choosing B ij = A ij, i, j N in Theorem 21 we achieve the following result that depends on delay arguments Corollary 22 The system (1) is asymptotically stable for any constant time delays h ij satisfying 0 h ij h ij, i, j N, provided that  i = A i A ii is Hurwitz and there eist symmetric positive definite matrices P i, R ij,andt ij, i, j N satisfying the following LMI condition: Ξ 11 Ξ12 Ξ13 Ξ T 12 Ξ 22 0 Ξ T 13 0 Ξ 33 < 0 (8) where Ψ 1 A T 21 P 2 P 1 A 12 A T N1 P N P 1 A 1N P 2 A 21 A T 12 Ξ 11 = P 1 Ψ2 A T N2 P N P 2 A 2N, P N A N1 A T 1N P 1 P N A N2 A T 2N P 2 ΨN Ψ 1 = ÂT i P i P i  i ( h ji R ji h ki T kji ), Ξ 12 = diag(γ 1,, Γ N ), Γ i =[ hi1 A T i P i A i1 hin A T i P i A in, Ξ 22 = diag(ˆγ 1,, ˆΓ N ), ˆΓi = diag(r i1,,r in ), Ξ 13 = diag(π 1,, Π N ), Π i =[Π i1 Π in, Π ki =[ hi1 A T ik P ia i1 hin A T ik P ia in, Ξ 33 = diag(ˆπ 1,, ˆΠ N ), ˆΠi = diag(ˆπ i1 ˆΠ in ), ˆΠ ki = diag(t ik1,,t ikn ) Now, we provide a procedure for testing the asymptotic stability of the system (1) Step 1 Choosing all B ij =0, i, j N the delay-independent criterion in Corollary 21 is applied to test the stability of the system (1) Step 2 If the condition in Corollary 21 cannot be satisfied, we choose all B ij = A ij, i, j N and the delay-dependent criterion in Corollary 22 is applied to test the stability of the system (1)

9 Stability criteria for large-scale time-delay systems 299 Step 3 By employing the method of GAs (Chen, 1998; Eshelman and Schaffer, 1993; Michalewicz, 1994; Gen and Cheng, 1997), the matri parameters B ij, i, j N that maimize the fitness function h ij, i, j N and Theorem 21 will be search in this algorithm Continue this algorithm until finding optimal matri parameters B ij =0, i, j N such that the system (1) and (2) are both asymptotically stable for any constant time-delays h ij satisfying 0 h ij h ij, i, j N 3 Eample Eample 31 Large-scale systems with time delays: Subsystem 1: ẋ 1 (t) = [ Subsystem 2: ẋ 2 (t) = [ (t) 2 (t) (t h 11 ) (t h 12 ), (t h 21 ) (t h 22 ) (9) Comparison of system (1) with system [ (9), we have N =2 By Theorem and GAs with h11 =21143, B 11 =,andb = B 21 = B 22 =, the LMI (3) is satisfied with P 00 1 =, P = , R =, V =, V 21 =, V =, V =, [ T 111 =, W =, W = Hence, we conclude that system (9) is asymptotically stable for 0 h , andh 12,h 21,h 22 R The delay-independent criteria in Hmamed (1986), Huang et al (1995), Lyou et al (1984), Schoen and Geering (1995), Wang et al (1991) cannot be satisfied The delay-dependent stability criteria of Tsay et al (1996) cannot be applied for sufficiently large time delays, h 12,h 21,h 22 R 4 Conclusions In this paper, asymptotic stability analysis problem for a class of large-scale neutral time-delay systems has been considered A model transformation and
