Abstract:

A class of systems was introduced where a particular application of the second method of Lyapunov leads to a simple time-optimal feedback solution. A much broader class of systems was identified where a desired time of response can be achieved through the design of appropriate dead-beat systems. A number of examples are included to show the simplicity of the application of the suggested techniques to design of space vehicle systems and systems in general. Author
