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.
