Abstract:

Feedback structures which reduce the parameter sensitivity of linear system are derived from the solution of the classical linear regulator problem. Linear, time varying systems with several inputs and outputs are treated, and simplifications in the design are noted for the time invariant case. Throughout the discussion, problems of implementation are considered as contraints on the design of the system. Specifically, unbounded elements in the controller are now allowable as the solution to be sensitivity problem. It is shown that for the structure, herein called Nth order feedback, the sensitivity of the system may be reduced to an arbitrarily small value. Author
