Contents: Background and motivation: what is robust control?; historical perspective; models and modelling; model reduction. Introduction to robust control: elements of robust control theory; design objectives and specifications; shaping the loop gain; Signals and systems: signals and their norms; computation of H2 norm; computation of H, H norm and associated algebraic relationship; all-pass systems, the adjoint operator; inverse systems. Matrix fraction description: factorization of polynomial matrices; testing for coprimeness; rational functions - matrix fraction description; the Smith-McMillan form, factorization over a ring of stable matrices; coprime fractional representation in state space. Parametrization of stabilizing controllers: well posedness and internal stability; the Youla parametrization approach; co-prime factorization in state space revisited; strong stabilization; Sensitivity minimization and robust stabilization: sensitivity minimization; 1-block, 2-block, and 4-block problems; sensitivity trade-offs for multivariable plants; design limitations due to R.H. plane zeros; plant uncertainty and robustness; robust stabilizing controllers. Balanced realization and Hankel norm approximation: balanced realization; best approximation in Hilbert space; the Hankel operator; the Hankel norm approximation problem; Glover's method. H2 and H optimization: LQG methodology; H optimization techniques; the Nevanlinna-Pick interpolation problem; operator-theoretic methods. Generalised plan-controller configuration: the standard configuration; stabilizability criteria; parametrization of stabilizing controllers for G22; reduction to the standard problem; from standard form to model matching. Controller synthesis in state space: LQG control-full information problem; the Kalman filter; parametrization of output feedback controllers. (Part contents).

Abstract:

Since the mid-1980s, significant advances have taken place in the area of robust control. The aim of this text is to outline these advances, explaining ideas and the motivations for pursuing  Read more...

Often, the original ideas and the motivations for pursuing a particular path are lost in a maze of mathematical formalism." "This book is intended to bring these ideas and techniques to the attention of a wider audience. With this end in view, a step-by-step approach has been adopted, gently guiding the reader through the labyrinths of robust control theory right up to the frontiers in this area. The 'orthogonal' objectives of mathematical rigour and readability have been balanced to provide the reader with a smooth and easy passage through the book." "Robust Control of Linear Dynamical Systems may be used as a text book by senior undergraduates and graduate students who have had some earlier exposure to linear system theory. It may also be used for self study by practising engineers interested in acquiring a deeper knowledge of robust controller design."--Jacket." ;
