Abstract

Integral sliding mode (SM) control is an interesting approach, as it can maintain the good chattering alleviation property of higher‐order SMs while making the reaching phase less critical and keeping the controlled system trajectory on a suitably selected sliding manifold since the initial time instant. In order to make such a method more robust and to improve its flexibility by the adaptation of its parameters to the current system condition, in this paper, a switched strategy is proposed. Specifically, the suboptimal Second‐order SM algorithm is considered as a basis in its integral formulation, and the switching strategy is designed by partitioning the so‐called auxiliary system state space in a finite number of regions. The proposed method allows one to improve the transient performance by adapting the gains through these regions, thus implying an energy saving capability. The proposal is theoretically analyzed and, in order to test its performance, the control of the lateral dynamics of ground vehicles is used as a case study. Specifically, yaw‐rate tracking is considered, as it is made difficult by parametric uncertainties and nonlinear effects that arise especially with large steering angles. Extensive simulation tests are carried out using standard validation maneuvers, which favorably witness the performance of the new control algorithm.
