TL;DR: Design and analysis forVariable structure systems are surveyed in this paper and it is shown that advantageous properties result from changing structures according to this switching logic.
Abstract: Variable structure systems consist of a set of continuous subsystems together with suitable switching logic. Advantageous properties result from changing structures according to this switching logic. Design and analysis for this class of systems are surveyed in this paper.

TL;DR: A tutorial account of variable structure control with sliding mode is presented, introducing in a concise manner the fundamental theory, main results, and practical applications of this powerful control system design approach.
Abstract: A tutorial account of variable structure control with sliding mode is presented. The purpose is to introduce in a concise manner the fundamental theory, main results, and practical applications of this powerful control system design approach. This approach is particularly attractive for the control of nonlinear systems. Prominent characteristics such as invariance, robustness, order reduction, and control chattering are discussed in detail. Methods for coping with chattering are presented. Both linear and nonlinear systems are considered. Future research areas are suggested and an extensive list of references is included. >

TL;DR: It turns out that the deviation of the system from its prescribed constraints (sliding accuracy) is proportional to the switching time delay and a new class of sliding modes and algorithms is presented and the concept of sliding mode order is introduced.
Abstract: The synthesis of a control algorithm that stirs a nonlinear system to a given manifold and keeps it within this constraint is considered. Usually, what is called sliding mode is employed in such synthesis. This sliding mode is characterized, in practice, by a high-frequency switching of the control. It turns out that the deviation of the system from its prescribed constraints (sliding accuracy) is proportional to the switching time delay. A new class of sliding modes and algorithms is presented and the concept of sliding mode order is introduced. These algorithms feature a bounded control continuously depending on time, with discontinuities only in the control derivative. It is also shown that the sliding accuracy is proportional to the square of the switching time delay.

TL;DR: Two types of nonlinear control algorithms are presented for uncertain linear plants, stabilizing polynomial feedbacks that allow to adjust a guaranteed convergence time of system trajectories into a prespecified neighborhood of the origin independently on initial conditions.
Abstract: Two types of nonlinear control algorithms are presented for uncertain linear plants. Controllers of the first type are stabilizing polynomial feedbacks that allow to adjust a guaranteed convergence time of system trajectories into a prespecified neighborhood of the origin independently on initial conditions. The control design procedure uses block control principles and finite-time attractivity properties of polynomial feedbacks. Controllers of the second type are modifications of the second order sliding mode control algorithms. They provide global finite-time stability of the closed-loop system and allow to adjust a guaranteed settling time independently on initial conditions. Control algorithms are presented for both single-input and multi-input systems. Theoretical results are supported by numerical simulations.
