#### Negative Imaginary State Feedback Equivalence for Systems of Relative Degree One and Relative Degree Two

##### Kanghong Shi, Ian R. Petersen, Igor G. Vladimirov

This paper presents necessary and sufficient conditions under which a linear system of relative degree either one or two is state feedback equivalent to a negative imaginary (NI) system. More precisely, we show for a class of linear time-invariant strictly proper systems, that such a system can be rendered minimal and negative imaginary using full state feedback if and only if it is controllable and weakly minimum phase. A strongly strict negative imaginary (SSNI) state feedback equivalence result is also provided. The NI state feedback equivalence result is then applied in a robust stabilization problem for an uncertain system with a strictly negative imaginary (SNI) uncertainty.
