Relative Controllability for a Class of Linear Impulsive Systems

Hybrid systems are systems that involve continuous and discrete event dynamical behaviors. A impulsive system is a special hybrid system. The continuous dynamics of impulsive systems are usually described by ordinary differential equations and the discrete event dynamics with instantaneously rapid jumps are described by switching laws. Various complex dynamical phenomena that can be modeled by impulsive systems arise in many areas of modern science and technology such as economics, physics, chemistry, biology, information science, radiotherapy, acupuncture, robotics, neural networks, automatic control, artificial intelligence, space technology, and telecommunications, etc. In modern control theory, controllability is one of the most important dynamical properties of considered impulsive systems, therefore, the controllability problem is regarded as one of the fundamental issues of impulsive systems. The basic questions for controllability of impulsive systems as well as for the ordinary systems without impulses and with control function are to obtain useful criteria that allow us to identify whether given dynamic systems are controllable or not. Up to now there have been being many investigation results for controllability of different kinds of impulsive systems with respect to the terminal state constraints of a point type. The purpose of this paper is to study relative controllability with respect to the terminal state constraint of a general type for a class of linear time-varying impulsive systems. In this paper, several types of criteria for relative controllability of such systems are established by a algebraic method, that is, specially speaking, by the matrix rank method. Some corresponding necessary and sufficient conditions for controllability of linear time-invariant impulsive systems are also obtained more compactly. Meanwhile, for given impulsive systems some equivalent relationships between different kinds of controllability are investigated and our criteria for relative controllability are compared with the existing results. A simple example is given to illustrate the utility of our criteria.
