Abstract:

Three types of controllers were developed in this thesis for use with a position-control system which was characterized by a second-order differential equation. One type of controller was linear and continuous. Both examples of this type of controller were each optimal in the sense that they were designed to minimize a specific performance index. The other types were optimal nonlinear onoff controllers, and a linear onoff controller with an optimal slope for its switching line. Theory is presented in detail for the development of the linear onoff controller with optimal slope of its switching line. Modified author abstract
