A Taboo Search Optimization of the Control Law of Nonlinear Systems with Bounded Uncertainties

Amira Gharbi, Mohamed Benrejeb, Pierre Borne


The aim of this paper is to propose a method to determine among the eligible controls of a nonlinear system, with bounded perturbations, the one which minimizes the final error. The approach is based on the implementation of aggregation techniques using vector norms in order to determine a comparison system used to calculate an attractor in view of its minimization by implementation of metaheuristics.
