Title: Optimal Solutions for Stability of Linear Control Systems





Many systems can be analyzed as consisting of three main aspects:

a set of inputs into the system, a set of conditions that describe the state of the system, and a set of outputs from the system.  By creating feedback, we can control the system and reach a stable state.  What is the optimal feedback in terms of energy and time for stability?  We can examine the existence of and methodology for finding solutions, using a system of differential matrix equations and Riccati equations.

This topic can be applied to various problems in engineering and industry, especially guidance systems.



All faculty and students are welcome.
