PREFACE During the last few years modem linear control theory has advanced rapidly and is now being recognized as a powerful and eminently practical tool for the solution of linear feedback control problems. The main characteristics of modern linear control theory are the state space description of systems, optimization in terms of quadratic performance criteria, and incorporation of Kalman-Bucy optimal state reconstruction theory. The significant ad- vantage of modern linear control theory over the classical theory is its ap- plicability to control problems involving multiinput multioutput

systems and time-varying situations; the classical theory is essentially restricted to single- input single-output time-invariant situations. The use of the term "modem" control theory could suggest a disregard for "classical," or "conventional," control theory, namely, the theory that con- sists of design methods based upon suitably shaping the transmission and loop gain functions, employing pole-zero techniques. However, we do not share such a disregard; on the contrary, we believe that the classical approach is well-established and proven by practice, and distinguishes itself by a cnl-

lection of sensible and useful goals and problem formulations. This book attempts to reconcile modern linear control theory with classical control theory. One of the major concerns of this text is to present design methods, employing modern techniques, for obtaining control systems that stand up to the requirements that have been so well developed in the classical expositions of control theory. Therefore, among other things, an entire chapter is devoted to a description of the analysis of control systems, mostly following the classical lines of thought. In the later chapters of the book, in

which modern synthesis methods are developed, the chapter on analysis is recurrently referred to. Furthermore, special attention is paid to subjects that are standard in classical control theory but are frequently overlooked in modern treatments, such as nonzero set point control systems, tracking systems, and control systems that have to cope with constant disturbances. Also, heavy emphasis is placed upon the stochastic nature of control problems because the stochastic aspects are so essential. vii

viii Preface We believe that modern and classical control theory can very well

be taught simultaneously, since they cover different aspects of the same problems. There is no inherent reason for teaching the classical theory first in under- graduate courses and to defer the modern theory, particularly the stochastic part of it, to graduate courses. In fact, we believe that a modern course should be a blend of classical, modern, and stochastic control theory. This is the approach followed in this hook. The book bas been organized as follows. About half of the material, containingmost of the analysis and design methods, as well as alarge number of examples, is presented in

unmarked sections. The finer points, such as conditions for existence, detailed results concerning convergence to steady- state solutions, and asymptotic properties, are dealt with in sections whose titles have been marked with an asterisk. TIE i~~iniarlcedsectro~is have been so written that they forni a textbook for a tiso-se!i~esterjirst course on control theory at the senior orfist-year grodlrate level. The marked sections consist of supplementary material of a more advanced nature. The control engineer who is interested in applying the material wiU find most design methods in the unmarked

sections but may have to refer to the remaining sections for more detailed information on difficult points. The following background is assumed. The reader should have had a kst course on linear systems or linear circuits and should possess some introductory knowledge of stochastic processes. It is also recommended that the reader have some experience in digital computer programming and that he have access to a computer. We do not believe that it 1s necessary for the reader to have followed a course on classical control theory before studying the material of this book. A chapter-by-chapter

description of the book follows. In Chapter 1, "Elements of Linear System Theory," the description of linear systems in terms of their state is the startingpoint, while transfer matrix and frequency response concepts are derived from the state description. Topics important for the steady-state analysis of linear optimal systems are carefully discussed. They are: controllability, stabilizability, reconstructibility, detectability, and duality. The last two sections of this chapter are devoted to a description of vector stochastic processes, with special emphasis on the representation of

stochastic processes as the outputs of linear differential systems driven by white noise. In later chapters this material is extensively employed. Chapter 2, "Analysis of Control Systems," gives a general description of control problems. Furthermore, it includes a step-by-step analysis of the Various aspects of control system performance. Single-input single-output and multivariable control systems are discussed in a unified framework by the use of the concepts of mean square tracking error and mean square input.

Preface ix Chapter 3, "Optimal Linear State Feedback Control

Systems," not only presents the usual exposition of the linear optimal regulator problem but also gives a rather complete survey of the steady-state properties of the Riccati equation and the optimal regulator. It deals with the numerical solution of Riccati equations and treats stochastic optimal regulators, optimal tracking systems, and regulators with constant disturbances and nonzero set points. As a special feature, the asymptotic properties of steady-state control laws and the maximally achievable accuracy of regulators and track- ing systems are discussed. Chapter 4, "Optimal Linear

Reconstruction of the State," derives the Kalman-Bucy filter starting with observer theory. Various special cases, such as singular observer problems and problems with colored observation noise, are also treated. The various steady-state and asymptotic properties of optimal observers are reviewed. In Chapter 5, "Optimal Linear Output Feedback Control Systems," the state feedback controllers of Chapter 3 are connected to the observers of Chapter 4. A heuristic and relatively simple proof of the separation principle is presented based on the innovations concept, which is discussed in Chapter 4.

Guidelines are given for the des~gn of various types of output feedback control systems, and a review of the design of reduced-order controllers is included. In Chapter 6, "Linear Optimal ControlTheory for Discrete-Time Systems," the entire theory of Chapters 1 through 5 is repeated in condensed form for linear discrete-time control systems. Special attention is given to state dead- beat and output deadbeat control systems, and to questions concerning the synchronization of the measurements and the control actuation. Throughout the book important concepts are introduced in definitions, and the

main results summarized in the form of theorems. Almost every section concludes with one or more examples, many of which are numerical. These examples serve to clarify the material of the text and, by their physical significance, to emphasize the practical applicability of the results. Most examples are continuations of earlier examples so that a specific problem is developed over several sections or even chapters. Whenever numerical values are used, care has been taken to designate the proper dimensions of the various quantities. To this end, the SI system of units has been employed, which is

now being internationally accepted (see, e.g., Barrow, 1966; IEEE Standards Committee, 1970). A complete review of the SI system can be found in the Reconinieiidotiotis of the International Organizat~on for Stand- ardization (various dates). The book contains about 50 problems. They can be divided into two categories: elementary exercises, directly illustrating the material of the text; and supplementary results, extending the material of the text. A few of the
Page 8
problems require the use of a digital computer. The problems marked with an asterisk are not considered to belong to

the textbook material. Suitable term projects could consist of writing and testing the computer subroutines listed in Section 5.8. Many references are quoted throughout the book, but no attempt has been made to reach any degree of completeness or to do justice to history. The fact that a particular publication is mentioned simply means that it has been used by us as source material or that related material can be found in it. The references are indicated by the author's name, the year of publication, and a letter indicating which publication is intended (e.g., Miller, 1971b).
