It has been recognized recently that the dilation of the LMI characterizations has new potentials in dealing with such involved problems as multiobjective control, robust performance analysis or synthesis for real polytopic uncertainty and so on. Contrary to the success in this direction in the discrete-time setting, analogous characterizations in the continuous-time setting are still open and challenging. The main contribution of this paper is to propose a general procedure to construct such dilated LMI characterizations for continuous-time control design. Because of our particular procedure, the dilated LMI characterizations are proved to have some very nice and interesting features that are to some extent analogous to the ones already obtained in the discrete-time setting.
