Abstract : This paper deals with the design of observers for linear systems with unknown, time-varying, but bounded delays (on the state and on the input). In this work, the problem is solved for a class of systems by combining the unknown input observer approach with an adequate choice of a Lyapunov-Krasovskii functional for non small delay systems. This result provides workable conditions in terms of rank assumptions and LMI conditions. The dynamic properties of the observer are also analyzed. A 4th-order example is used to demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed solution.
