Digital repetitive control is a technique which allows to track periodic references and/or reject periodic disturbances. Repetitive controllers are usually designed assuming a fixed frequency for the signals to be tracked/rejected, its main drawback being a dramatic performance decay when this frequency varies. A usual approach to overcome the problem consists of an adaptive change of the sampling time according to the reference/disturbance period variation. This report presents a stability analysis of a digital repetitive controller working under time-varying sampling period by means of an LMI gridding approach. Theoretical developments are illustrated with experimental results.
