Abstract:

The linear quadratic optimal control method is used today to solve many complex systems problems. As system complexity increases, and as linear quadratic optimal control is used in more demanding situations, the extension of the design methodology to cover system failures, robustness and reliability is of crucial importance. This paper documents the progress toward a theory which incorporates reliability in the performance index a linear quadratic control problem is formulated which accounts for system effectiveness and gives an offline procedure for comparing two linear quadratic control systems on the basis of both reliability and performance.
