[en] For a large class of relay feedback systems (RFS) there will be limit cycle oscillations. Conditions to check existence and local stability of limit cycles for these systems are well known. Global stability conditions, however, are practically non-existent. The paper presents conditions in the form of linear matrix inequalities (LMIs) that guarantee global asymptotic stability of a limit cycle induced by a relay with hysteresis in feedback with an LTI stable system. The analysis is based on finding global quadratic Lyapunov functions for a Poincare map associated with the RFS. We found that a typical Poincare map induced by an LTI flow between two hyperplanes can be represented as a linear transformation analytically parametrized by a scalar function of the state. Moreover, level sets of this function are convex. The search for globally quadratic Lyapunov functions is then done by solving a set of LMIs. Most examples of RFS analyzed by the authors were proven globally stable. Systems analyzed include minimum-phase systems, systems of relative degree larger than one, and of high dimension. This leads us to believe that quadratic stability of associated Poincare maps is common in RFS.
