A normal form for two-input forward-flat nonlinear discrete-time systems
Sprache des Titels:
We show that every forward-flat nonlinear discrete-time system with two inputs can be transformed into a structurally flat normal form by state- and input transformations. This normal form has a triangular structure and allows to read off the flat output, as well as a systematic construction of the parameterisation of all system variables by the flat output and its forward-shifts. For flat continuous-time systems, no comparable normal form exists.
