An observer design for a class of implicit systems


This paper deals with the problem of observer design for a class of implicit nonlinear systems of index one. To solve this problem, an implicit observer which is given by an implicit system is usually used. The implementation of this kind of observer requires an optimization algorithm to solve at each time the algebraic constraints. Alternatively, an explicit observer which is described by an ordinary differential equation can be used. The advantage of this approach is that no optimization algorithm is required. Moreover the observer initialization may be done outside the constraints. In this paper it is shown that, under some conditions, the existence of an implicit observer implies the existence of an explicit one. Then, an explicit observer is given for implicit state affine systems whose dynamic involves an additional nonlinear term depending on the input, the output and the implicit variable.
