Abstract

This paper presents a new nonlinear robust disturbance observer by using only the input-output information for minimum phase dynamical systems with arbitrarily relative degrees. The model uncertainties, the nonlinear parts of the system are merged into the disturbance term, and are regarded as a part of the disturbance. The disturbance is assumed bounded. However, the upper and lower bounds are assumed unknown. The new disturbance observer is inspired by the VSS control theory, whereas the upper and lower bounds of the disturbance are adaptively updated. The estimation error of the disturbance can be made as small as necessary by choosing the design parameters. The attraction of the proposed method lies in its robustness to disturbance and easiness to be implemented. Example and simulation results show the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm.
