Perfect observers for fractional discrete-time linear systems

Ewa PawluszewiczDOI: 10.14736/kyb-2016-6-0914


A perfect (exact) fractional observer of discrete-time singular linear control system of fractional order is studied. Conditions for its existence are given. The obtained results are applied to the detectability problem of the class of systems under consideration.
