In this paper the Single Particle Model is used to describe the behavior of a Li-ion battery. The main goal is to design a feedback input current in order to regulate the State of Charge (SOC) to a prescribed reference trajectory. In order to do that, we use the boundary ion concentration as output. First, we measure it directly and then we assume the existence of an appropriate estimator, which has been established in the literature using voltage measurements. By applying backstepping and Lyapunov tools, we are able to build observers and to design output feedback controllers giving a positive answer to the SOC tracking problem. We provide convergence proofs and perform some numerical simulations to illustrate our theoretical results.

This paper is about the stabilization of a cascade system of $n$ linear Korteweg--de Vries equations in a bounded interval. It considers an output feedback control placed at the left endpoint of the last equation, while the output involves only the solution to the first equation. The boundary control problems investigated include two cases: a classical control on the Dirichlet boundary condition and a less standard one on its second-order derivative. The feedback control law utilizes the estimated solutions of a high-gain observer system, and the output feedback control leads to stabilization for any $n$ for the first boundary conditions case and for $n=2$ for the second one.

This paper studies the exponential stabilization of a Boussinesq system describing the two-way propagation of small amplitude gravity waves on the surface of an ideal fluid, the so-called Boussinesq system of the Korteweg–de Vries type. We use a Gramian-based method introduced by Urquiza to design our feedback control. By means of spectral analysis and Fourier expansion, we show that the solutions of the linearized system decay uniformly to zero when the feedback control is applied. The decay rate can be chosen as large as we want. The main novelty of our work is that we can exponentially stabilize this system of two coupled equations using only one scalar input.
