Three procedures for designing robust observers to estimate the state variables of nonlinear constrained systems have been developed in this work. All observers are based on the sliding mode methodology and assume that the number of transducers matches that of the degrees of freedom of the system. The conceptual differences between the proposed observer designs are in the number and selection of the sliding surfaces along with the formulations pertaining to their nominal models. The observers have been applied to estimate the state variables of a crank-slider mechanism of a single cylinder engine. The simulation results demonstrate the capabilities of the observers in accurately estimating the state variables of the system, including the superfluous ones, in the presence of significant structured and unstructured uncertainties. In addition, the results show that the nominal constraint equations are satisfied by the estimated state variables.
