This paper discusses and compares LMI results built using the S-variable approach starting from equivalent yet different representations of uncertain systems. Using the fact that S-variable results are well suited to handle descriptor systems and that descriptor system modeling is versatile, we compare results in terms of the impact of modeling on the computational burden and on conservatism. Multi-affine representations allow reduced numerical burden while affine representations lead to less conservative results. Numerical examples show that conservatism reduction is not systematic, but is in some cases quite significant without major increase of the numerical burden.
