Abstract

Index plays a fundamental role in the study of descriptor systems. For regular descriptor systems, calculation of the index can be performed by calculating the index of the nilpotent matrix obtained by means of the Weierstrass canonical form. Notwithstanding, if the system is not regular, there is no algebraic technique to determine the index of the system. A sufficient algebraic criterion is provided to determine the index of a general linear time-invariant descriptor systems. Thereafter, we provide an alternate but lucid proof of the fact that impulse controllability is necessary and sufficient for the existence of a semistate feedback such that the closed loop system is of the index at most one. Finally, a sufficient test for the existence of a semistate feedback such that the closed loop system is of the index at most two is provided. Examples are given to illustrate the presented theory.
