The stability of linear dynamic systems with hysteresis in feedback is considered. While the absolute stability for memoryless nonlinearities (known as Lure’s problem) can be proved by the well-known circle criterion, the multivalued rate-independent hysteresis poses significant challenges for feedback systems, especially for proof of convergence to an equilibrium state correspondingly set. The dissipative behavior of clockwise input-output hysteresis is considered with two boundary cases of energy losses at reversal cycles. For upper boundary cases of maximal (parallelogram shape) hysteresis loop, an equivalent transformation of the closed-loop system is provided. This allows for the application of the circle criterion of absolute stability. Invariant sets as a consequence of hysteresis are discussed. Several numerical examples are demonstrated, including a feedback-controlled double-mass harmonic oscillator with hysteresis and one stable and one unstable poles configuration.
