  • The fundamental tradeoff between performance and robustness - A new perspective on loop shaping - Classic control revisited part II

    Control systems must fundamentally trade off performance with robustness to plant uncertainty. For example, increasing the controller gain is desirable for improving tracking and disturbance rejection, but only up to a point at which uncertainty in the plant gain can potentially render the closed-loop system inevitable discrepancy between the true plant and its model. Hence, controller design aims... View full abstract»

    The purpose of this article is to illuminate the critical role of system zeros in control-system performance for the benefit of a wide audience both inside and outside the control systems community. Zeros are a fundamental aspect of systems and control theory; however, the causes and effects of zeros are more subtle than those of poles. In particular, positive zeros can cause initial undershoot (i... View full abstract»

  • Decentralized cooperative control - A multivehicle platform for research in networked embedded systems

    Recent advances in communication, computation, and embedded technologies support the development of cooperative multivehicle systems. For the purposes of this article, we adopt the following definition of cooperative behavior: "Given some task specified by a designer, a multiple-robot system displays cooperative behavior if, due to some underlying mechanism, for instance, the 'mechanism of coopera...

  • Lecture notes - ODES with Differentiated Inputs Specifying Preinitial Conditions

    Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (134 KB) |  | HTML iconHTML  

    When a differential equation has differentiated inputs, the pre-initial values of the input must be specified in order for the problem to be well posed. These values are not determined by the mathematics but rather by the physical situation. The issue persists in state-space models, even though no derivatives of the input appear explicitly. Consequently, care must be taken to determine the pre-ini... View full abstract»

  • The Final Value Theorem Revisited - Infinite Limits and Irrational Functions

    Publication Year: 2007 , Page(s): 97 - 99
    Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (128 KB) |  | HTML iconHTML  

    The aim of this article is to publicize and prove the ";infinite-limit"; version of the final value theorem. The version we provide is a slight refinement of the classical literature in that we require that s approach zero through the right-half plane to obtain the correct sign of the infinite limit. We first consider the case of rational Laplace transforms and then state a version that applies to... View full abstract»
