Abstract:

Feedforward control is an advanced control technique which has become increasingly important as the demand for better control has grown. This article will review previous work and illustrate the main concepts of feedforward control. The first part will qualitatively compare feedforward control FFC and feedback control in order to answer the question What is FFC. In the second part the advantages and disadvantages of using feedforward control will be discussed to answer the question Why and when to use FFC. In the next section previous work on feedforward control will be surveyed. The different types of feedforward controllers and how they are mathematically developed will then be illustrated with several examples. This report therefore summarizes the current state-of-the-art on the whats, whys, and hows of applying feedforward control. Author
