Symbolic Abstractions for Nonlinear Control Systems via Feedback Refinement Relation

Wei Ren, Dimos V. Dimarogonas

This paper studies the construction of symbolic abstractions for nonlinear control systems via feedback refinement relation. Both the delay-free and time-delay cases are addressed. For the delay-free case, to reduce the computational complexity, we propose a new approximation approach for the state and input sets based on a static quantizer, and then a novel symbolic model is constructed such that the original system and the symbolic model satisfy the feedback refinement relation. For the time-delay case, both static and dynamic quantizers are combined to approximate the state and input sets. This leads to a novel dynamic symbolic model for time-delay control systems, and a feedback refinement relation is established between the original system and the symbolic model. Finally, a numerical example is presented to illustrate the obtained results.
