Convex Liftings: Theory and Control Applications

Abstract : This paper presents the so-called convex lifting concept which will be proven to enable significant implementation benefits for the class of piecewise affine controllers. Accordingly, two different algorithms to construct a convex lifting for a given polyhedral/polytopic partition will be presented. These two algorithms rely on either the vertex or the halfspace representation of the related polyhedra. Also, we introduce an algorithm to refine a polyhedral partition, which does not admit a convex lifting, into a convexly liftable one. Furthermore, two different schemes will be put forward to considerably reduce both the memory footprint and the runtime complexity which play a key role in implementation of piecewise affine controllers. Finally, these results will be illustrated via a numerical example and a complexity analysis.
