Abstract:
The reachable sets of nonlinear systems are usually quite complicated. They, as a rule, are nonconvex and arranged to have rather complex behavior. In this paper, the asymptotic behavior of reachable sets of nonlinear controlaffine systems on small time intervals is studied. We assume that the initial state of the system is fixed, and the control is bounded in the $\mathbb{L}_2$norm. The subject of the study is the applicability of the linearization method for a sufficiently small length of the time interval. We provide sufficient conditions under which the reachable set of a nonlinear system is convex and asymptotically equal to the reachable set of a linearized system. The concept of asymptotic equality is defined in terms of the BanachMazur metric in the space of sets. The conditions depend on the behavior of the controllability Gramian of the linearized system — the smallest eigenvalue of the Gramian should not tend to zero too quickly when the length of the time interval tends to zero. The indicated asymptotic behavior occurs for a reasonably wide class of secondorder nonlinear control systems but can be violated for systems of higher dimension. The results of numerical simulation illustrate the theoretical conclusions of the paper.
