A novel H2–H State Dependent Riccati Equation control approach is presented for providing a generalized control framework to discrete time nonlinear system. By solving a generalized Riccati Equation at each time step, the nonlinear state feedback control solution is found to satisfy mixed performance criteria guaranteeing quadratic optimality with inherent stability property in combination with H type of disturbance attenuation. Two numerical techniques to compute the solution of the resulting Riccati equation are presented: The first one is based on finding the steady state solution of the difference equation at every step and the second one is based on finding the minimum solution of a linear matrix inequality. The effectiveness of the proposed techniques is demonstrated by simulations involving the control of an inverted pendulum on a cart, a benchmark mechanical system.
