Abstract:

This report describes progress in the development and application of H-infinity-optimal control theory to distributed parameter systems. This research is intended to develop both theory and algorithms capable of providing realistic control systems for physical plants which are appropriately modeled as infinite dimensional linear systems, such as large space structures. In pursuing this program, we have focused on issues motivated by specific models of infinite dimensional systems. Our main results are as follows We have extended outer factor absorption results to cover certain irrational outer factors. This is in order to justify transformations used in a step for further explicit solution. We have generalized previous results on the single-inputsingle-output SISO mixed sensitivity problem to the case of irrational outer factor and unstable plant. We have solved a multi-inputoutput mixed sensitivity problem which cannot be treated by previous results. Finally, we developed a technique for numerically computing the optimal value of weighted mixed sensitivity for SISO systems, for the case where explicit symbolic innerouter factorizations are not possible.
