The class of projected dynamical systems (PDS) has proven to be a powerful framework for modeling dynamical systems of which the trajectories are constrained to a set by means of projection. However, PDS fall short in modeling systems in which the constraint set does not satisfy certain regularity conditions and only part of the dynamics can be projected. This poses limitations in terms of the phenomena that can be described in this framework especially in the context of systems and control. Motivated by hybrid integrator-gain systems (HIGS), which are recently proposed control elements in the literature that aim at overcoming fundamental limitations of linear time-invariant feedback control, a new class of discontinuous dynamical systems referred to as extended projected dynamical systems (ePDS) is introduced in this paper. Extended projected dynamical systems include PDS as a special case and are well-defined for a wider variety of constraint sets as well as partial projections of the dynamics. In this paper, the ePDS framework is connected to the classical PDS literature and is subsequently used to provide a formal mathematical description of a HIGS-controlled system, which was lacking in the literature so far. Based on the latter result, HIGS-controlled systems are shown to be well-posed, in the sense of global existence of solutions.
