Large space structures exhibit distributed parameter behavior in their dynamics and thus must be described on infinite-dimensional state-spaces. However, the controller algorithm must be finite-dimensional to be implemented. The focus of this research has been to make finite-dimensional approximations of infinite-dimensional controllers which stabilize the distributed parameter system. The investigator has shown conditions under which Galerkin approximation schemes can yield finite-dimensional stabilizing controllers for linear distributed parameter systems.
