Abstract:

Given a second order oscillatory system with one zero, find the optimum control for zeroing the errors with minimum fuel. A system is found that reacts identically to the system with zeros except at the points of discontinuity. Control of this parallel system can be stated in terms of the state space variables. This logic can then be used to switch the original plant. The method of Pontryagin is used to solve the problem. A brief description of this method is presented. Author
