Abstract

In this paper we use Sum-of-Squares (SOS) and Semi-Definite Programming (SDP) to design output feedback controllers for a class of one-dimensional parabolic partial differential equations with point measurements and point actuation. Our approach is based on the use of SOS to search for positive quadratic Lyapunov functions, controllers and observers. These Lyapunov functions, controllers and observers are parameterized by linear operators which are defined by SOS polynomials. The main result of the paper is the development of an improved class of observer-based controllers and evidence which indicates that when the system is controllable and observable, these methods will find a observer-based controller for sufficiently high polynomial degree (similar to well-known results from backstepping).
