Abstract: The control of nonlinear uncertain systems is still an open area of research, and sliding mode control (SMC) is one of the robust and effective methods to cope with uncertain conditions. In this paper, a new sliding mode control algorithm for a class of discrete-time nonlinear uncertain systems is proposed. By using an estimator of uncertainties and external disturbances, the proposed algorithm ensures the stability of the closed loop system as well as the reference tracking. The controller designed using the above technique is completely insensitive to the parametric uncertainty and the external disturbances. Simulations are carried out on a numerical example and a bioreactor benchmark, and the results confirm the effectiveness of our proposition.

Keywords: discrete time quasi-sliding mode control; nonlinear systems; uncertain systems; estimator; a bioreactor benchmark.
