Abstract:

The importance of designing control systems which are robust or insensitive to variations in the plant parameters has long been appreciated. However, the rapid advances in design techniques for multivariable systems has heightened interest in the study and design of robust systems. The purpose of this report is to provide an up to date survey of the work in this field and summarize the results of research in this area conducted at the Coordinated Science Laboratory. The report begins in Chapter 2 with a description and examples of the robust control problem. Chapter 3 provides a survey of research in the field of robust control. It is apparent from this survey that the work can be divided into two areas. The first assumes unstructured perturbations and analyzes worst case effects. The second considers large, structured perturbations. The parameter space design method presented in Chapter 4 is directed at the second area. The tools of Chapter 4 are applied to a fighter aircraft example in Chapter 5. Chapter 6 presents an optimization approach to the same problem. Finally, Chapter 7 summarizes the report and presents several directions for future research. Author
