Optimal ControllerLocal Linearization of Nonlinear Systems

11. Nonlinear Control Systems

Although systematic treatment of nonlinear control problems is currently beyond the scope of Control System Professional, it does provide the linearization tools that may allow construction of a linear model describing the behavior of the nonlinear system in the vicinity of some operating point. For reasonably smooth nonlinearities, this approach may provide a useful insight into the properties of the system, if not a suitable approximation.
