Control vector lyapunov functions for large-scale impulsive dynamical systems.

Vector Lyapunov theory has been developed to weaken the hypothesis of standard Lyapunov theory in order to enlarge the class of Lyapunov functions that can be used for analyzing system stability. In this paper, we provide generalizations to the recent extensions of vector Lyapunov theory for continuous-time systems to address stability and control design of impulsive dynamical systems via vector Lyapunov functions. Specifically, we provide a generalized comparison principle involving hybrid comparison dynamics that are dependent on comparison system states as well as the nonlinear impulsive dynamical system states. Furthermore, we develop stability results for impulsive dynamical systems that involve vector Lyapunov functions and hybrid comparison inequalities. Based on these results, we show that partial stability for state-dependent impulsive dynamical systems can be addressed via vector Lyapunov functions. Furthermore, we extend the novel notion of control vector Lyapunov functions to impulsive dynamical systems. Using control vector Lyapunov functions, we present a universal decentralized feedback stabilizer for a decentralized affine in the control nonlinear impulsive dynamical system. These results are then used to develop decentralized controllers for large-scale impulsive dynamical systems with robustness guarantees against full modeling uncertainty.
