Closed loop stability of measure-driven impulsive control systems

  • W. J. Code
  • G. N. Silva


Closed loop stabilization of impulsive control systems containing a measure in the dynamics is considered. It is proved that, as for regular affine systems, an almost everywhere continuous stabilizing impulsive feedback control law exists for such impulsive systems. An example illustrating the loop closing features is also presented.
