N2 - A higher-order integrator approach is proposed to obtain an approximate discrete-time transfer function for uncertain continuous systems having interval uncertainties. Thanks to simple algebraic operations of this approach, the resulting discrete model is a rational function of the uncertain parameters. The problem of non-linearly coupled coefficients of exponential nature in the exact discrete-time transfer function is therefore circumvented. Furthermore, interval structure of the uncertain continuous-time system is preserved in the resulting discrete model by using this approach. Formulas to obtain the lower and upper bounds for the discrete interval system are derived, so that existing robust results in the discrete-time domain can be easily applied to the discretized system. Digital simulation and design for the continuous-time interval plant can then be performed based on the obtained discrete-time interval model.
