High-gain observers in nonlinear feedback control

Abstract : In this document, we present the main ideas and results concerning high-gain observers and some of their applications in control. The introduction gives a brief history of the topic. Then, a motivating second-order example is used to illustrate the key features of high-gain observers and their use in feedback control. This is followed by a general presentation of high-gain-observer theory in a unified framework that accounts for modeling uncertainty, as well as measurement noise. The paper concludes by discussing the use of high-gain observers in the robust control of minimum-phase nonlinear systems.
