2.2.5 The Controller Design Using Constrained Feedback Stabilization

Selected for further experiments is a controller in the middle of the list lqcontrollers that adequately improves the damping factor and yet avoids extremely large feedback gains. In effect, this choice provides a reasonable compromise between the settling time of the system and the sensitivity of the feedback to the noise.

This selects the controller in the middle of the list.

In[26]:=

Out[26]=

This is a norm of the feedback gains.

In[27]:=

Out[27]=

This provides a measure of the noise sensitivity of the feedback.

In[28]:=

Out[28]=

These are the closed-loop poles for the selected feedback matrix.

In[29]:=

Out[29]=

This is a measure of the damping factor of the closed-loop system.

In[30]:=

Out[30]=

This uses the partial Lyapunov feedback stabilization to construct a state feedback controller that provides a comparable damping factor.

In[31]:=

Out[31]=

The norm of the feedback gain matrix is somewhat smaller than the one provided by the LQR design.

In[32]:=

Out[32]=

The noise sensitivity of the feedback is also smaller.

In[33]:=

Out[33]=

Here are the closed-loop poles. Note that the partial Lyapunov stabilization shifted the only noncompliant pole (the one at the origin) into the chosen region.

In[34]:=

Out[34]=
