An observer for M.I.M.O. nonlinear delay systems

ABSTRACT
In this work the problem of state reconstruction from input and output measurements for multi-input multi-output (M.I.M.O.) nonlinear delay systems is considered and an asymptotic state observer is developed. On this matter many works have been published concerning the linear case, while for the nonlinear case to our knowledge the first result is the one in (Germani, et al., 1998d), that considers single-input single-output nonlinear delay systems. A suitable modification of the standard tools of differential geometry is used in this paper for the construction of the observer and to work out conditions of convergence to zero of the observation error. The proposed observation algorithm can be designed quite directly from the system equations and is not difficult to implement on a computer. Numerical simulations are reported that show also its effectiveness.
