In this study, the author investigates controllability of discrete-time bilinear systems by using invariant sets. An invariant set defined in this study is a set on which the system is invariant, namely for any initial state that belongs to the set, the system cannot be steered away from this set. If a system is controllable, then it has no invariant set in its state space other than the state space itself. Invariant sets are thus closely related to controllability. By studying the invariant sets of discrete-time bilinear systems, the author first presents a necessary and sufficient condition for controllability of the systems in dimension two, which covers a classical result under the same condition. Then the author considers the high-dimensional systems and improve the recent results on controllability by relaxing a condition concerning invariant sets, where more general controllability criteria are derived. Finally, examples are given to illustrate the obtained results.
