This paper aims to rigorously study the observer for general uncertain systems. The proposed observer is shown to be the general form of extended state observer (ESO), disturbance observer (DO), generalized extended state observer (GESO) and extended high gain observer (EHGO). The properties of this general observer is discussed by analyzing the estimation error. The paper illustrates that the output of the proposed general observers may not performs as the estimation the real state and uncertainty. We prove that this observer gives the estimations for the group of states and uncertainties whose exact form is given in the paper. Finally, numerical simulations for a typical example validate the theoretical analysis.
