Abstract : "This paper investigates the problem of designing an unknown inputs observer to estimate states of a
class of nonlinear systems that can be modeled by polynomial fuzzy systems subject to unknown inputs. The
proposed method provides important innovations over the existing unknown inputs observers since the designed
observer has a polynomial fuzzy structure. Based on the Lyapunov approach, the proposed observer is developed
to guarantee the asymptotic stability of the estimation error and sufficient design conditions are given in Sum Of
Squares formulations with equality constraints. Both continuous-time and discrete-time cases are addressed and
relaxed conditions are also introduced by using intermediate variables that can be easily solved via numerical tools.
Finally, an illustrative example is given to provide the effectiveness of the proposed methodology."
