Flatness for linear fractional systems with application to a thermal system

Abstract : This paper is devoted to the study of the flatness property of linear time-invariant fractional systems. In the framework of polynomial matrices of the fractional derivative operator, we give a characterization of fractionally flat outputs and a simple algorithm to compute them. We also obtain a characterization of the so-called fractionally 0-flat outputs. We then present an application to a two dimensional heated metallic sheet, whose dynamics may be approximated by a fractional model of order 1/2. The trajectory planning of the temperature at a given point of the metallic sheet is obtained thanks to the fractional flatness property, without integrating the system equations. The pertinence of this approach is discussed on simulations.
