Hung, Fellow, IEEE Abstract-A tutorial account of variable structure control with brief discussions about its historical development are pre- sliding mode is presented in this paper. The purpose is to sented. introduce in a concise manner the fundamental theory, main results, and practical applications of this powerful control sys- A. The Basic Notion of VSC tem design approach. This approach is particularly attractive The basic idea of VSC was originally illustrated by a for the control of nonlinear systems. Prominent characteristics such as invariance, robustness, order reduction, and control second-order system [431, [ 1541 similar to the following chattering are discussed in detail. Methods for coping with X=y chattering are presented. Both linear and nonlinear systems are considered. Future research areas are suggested and an exten- +U 2y -x y = (la) sive list of references is included.
