Abstract:

Given any proper rational transfer matrix, Ts, a special lower left triangular polynomial matrix, xi sub T s, called the interactor has been defined and shown to be together with the rank of Ts a complete invariant under dynamic compensation. In this paper, the interactor is used to develop results on decoupling and pole placement via feedback. For example, it is shown that triangular decoupling with arbitrary pole assignment is always possible using state feedback and that decoupling with arbitrary pole assignment is always possible using dynamic compensation.
