Discrete-Time Sliding Mode Control
As well known, Sliding Mode Control guarantees robustness with respect to several kinds of uncertainties (disturbances and parameter variations). However, several drawbacks of this control methodology, such as chattering, high initial control efforts, can limit its application. A possible answer to this problem is the discrete-time version of sliding mode control, which preserves a certain degree of robustness and allows an easier implementation of the synthesized controllers. Possible application fields of this approach are control of manipulators, control of electrical drives, fault tolerant control.
