Chapter State and Output eedbac This hapter describ es ho feedbac can used shap the lo cal eha vior of system. Both state and output feedbac are discussed. The concepts of reac habilit and observ abilit are in tro duced and it is sho wn ho states can estimated from measuremen ts of the input and the output. 5.1 In tro duction The idea of using feedbac to shap the dynamic eha vior as discussed in broad terms in Section 1.4. In this hapter will discuss this in detail for linear systems. In particular it will sho wn that under certain conditions it is ossible to assign the system

eigen alues to arbitrary alues feedbac k, allo wing us to \design" the dynamics of the system. The state of dynamical system is collection of ariables that ermits prediction of the future dev elopmen of system. In this hapter will explore the idea of con trolling system through feedbac of the state. will assume that the system to con trolled is describ ed linear state mo del and has single input (for simplicit y). The feedbac con trol will dev elop ed step step using one single idea: the ositioning of closed lo op eigen alues in desired lo cations. It turns out that the con troller has ery in

teresting structure that applies to man design metho ds. This hapter ma therefore view ed as protot yp of man analytical design metho ds. If the state of system is not ailable for direct measuremen t, it is often ossible to determine the state reasoning ab out the state through our kno wledge of the dynamics and more limited measuremen ts. This is done building an \observ er" that uses measuremen ts of the inputs and outputs of linear system, along with mo del of the system dynamics, to 109

analysis and designs in this hapter are carried out for systems with one input and one output, but it turns out that the structure of the con troller and the forms of the equations are exactly the same for systems with man inputs and man outputs. There are also man other design tec hniques that giv con trollers with the same structure. harac- teristic feature of con troller with state feedbac and an observ er is that the complexit of the con troller is giv en the complexit of the system to con trolled. Th us the con troller actually con tains mo del of the sys- tem. This is an example of the

internal mo del principle whic sa ys that con troller should ha an in ternal mo del of the con trolled system. 5.2 Reac habilit egin disregarding the output measuremen ts and fo cus on the ev olu- tion of the state whic is giv en dx dt Ax u; (5.1) where is an matrix and an matrix. fundamen tal question is if it is ossible to ˇnd con trol signals so that an oin in the state space can reac hed. First observ that ossible equilibria for constan con trols are giv en Ax bu This means that ossible equilibria lies in one (or ossibly higher) dimen- sional subspace. If the matrix is in ertible this

subspace is spanned Ev en if ossible equilibria lie in one dimensional subspace it ma still ossible to reac all oin ts in the state space transien tly explore this will ˇrst giv heuristic argumen based on formal calculations with impulse functions. When the initial state is zero the resp onse of the state to unit step in the input is giv en d (5.2) The deriv ativ of unit step function is the impulse function ), whic ma regarded as function whic is zero ev erywhere except at the origin

This implies that can mo the system from an initial state to an ˇnal state and, in particular, that can alw ys ˇnd an input to bring the system from an initial state to the equilibrium.

An example of suc system is giv en in Figure 5.1. The system consists of iden tical systems with the same input. The in tuition can also demonstrated analytically demonstrate this

simple example.

The complete system is then describ ed dx dt dx dt The reac habilit matrix is This matrix is singular and the system is not reac hable. One implication of this is that if and start with the same alue, it is nev er ossible to ˇnd an input whic causes them to ha di˛eren alues. Similarly if they start with di˛eren alues, no input will able to driv them oth to zero. Co ordinate

Assume that the co ordinates are hanged to As sho wn in the last hapter, that the dynamics matrix and the con trol matrix for the transformed system are AT The reac habilit matrix for the transformed system then ecomes

Since the state at time con tains all information necessary to predict the future eha vior of the system, the most general time in arian con trol la is function of the state, i.e. )) If the feedbac is restricted to linear, it can written as (5.9) where is the reference alue. The negativ sign is simply con en tion to

indicate that negativ feedbac is the normal situation. The closed lo op system obtained when the feedbac (5.8) is applied to the system (5.9) is giv en dx dt (5.10)

ST TE AND OUTPUT FEEDBA CK It will attempted to determine the feedbac gain so that the closed lo op system has the haracteristic olynomial (5.11) This con trol problem is called the eigen alue assignmen problem or the ole placemen problem (w will deˇne \p oles" more formally in later hapter). Examples will start considering few examples that giv insigh in to the nature of the problem. Example

Consider the system dx dt with the con trol la The closed lo op system is dx dt This system has the haracteristic olynomial det This olynomial has zeros at and One closed lo op eigen alue is th us alw ys equal to and it is not ossible to obtain an arbitrary haracteristic olynomial. This example sho ws that the eigen alue placemen problem cannot al- ys solv ed. An analysis of the equation describing the system sho ws that the state is not reac hable. It is th us clear that some conditions on the system are required. The reac hable

canonical form has the prop ert that the parameters of the system are the co ecien ts of the haracteristic equation. It is therefore natural to consider systems on this form when solving the eigen alue place- men problem. In the next example in estigate the case when the system is in reac hable canonical form. Example 5.6 (System in achable Canonic al orm). Consider system in reac hable canonical form, i.e, dz dt Az (5.13)

Since the all elemen ts of the -matrix except the ˇrst ro are zero it follo ws that the state feedbac only hanges the ˇrst ro of the -matrix.

distur- bance is kno wn the con trol la ab can in terpreted as com bination of feedbac from the system state and feedforw ard from measured distur- bance. It is not realistic to assume that the disturbance can measured and will instead replace the states estimates. The feedbac la then ecomes This means that feedbac is based on estimates of the state and the distur- bance. There are man other ys to in tro duce in tegral action. 5.8 General Con troller Structure So far reference signals ha een in tro duced simply adding it to the state feedbac k. more sophisticated of doing this is sho wn the

blo dia- gram in Figure 5.5, where the con troller consists of three parts: an observ er that computes estimates of the states based on mo del and measured pro- cess inputs and outputs, state feedbac and tra jectory generator that generates the desired eha vior of all states and feedforw ard signal The signal is suc that it generates the desired eha vior of the states when applied to the system, under ideal conditions of no disturbances and no mo deling errors. The con troller is said to ha two de gr es of fr dom ecause the resp onse to command signals and disturbances are decoupled.

Disturbance resp onses are go erned the observ er and the state feedbac and the resp onse to command signal is go erned the feedforw ard. get some insigh in to the eha vior of the system let us discuss what happ ens when the command signal is hanged. ˇx the ideas let us assume that the system is in equilibrium with the observ er state equal to the pro cess state When the command signal is hanged feedforw ard signal is generated. This signal has the prop ert that the pro cess output giv es the desired output when the feedforw ard signal is applied to the system. The pro cess state hanges

in resp onse to the feedforw ard signal. The ob- serv er trac ks the state erfectly ecause the initial state as correct. The estimated state will equal to the desired state and the feedbac signal is zero. If there are some disturbances or some mo deling errors the feedbac signal will di˛eren from zero and attempt to correct the situation. The con troller giv en in Figure 5.5 is ery general structure. There are man ys to generate the feedforw ard signal and there are also man dif-

Computer Implemen tation The con trollers obtained so far ha een describ ed ordinary di˛eren tial equations. They can

The computer ypically op erates erio dically signals from the sensors are sampled and con erted to digital form the A/D con erter, the con trol signal is computed, con erted to analog form for the actuators, as sho wn in Figure 1.3 on page 5. illustrate the main principles consider the con troller describ ed equations (5.29) and (5.30), i.e. dt The ˇrst equation whic only consists of additions and ultiplications can implemen ted directly in

Care ust also tak en so that parameter hanges do not cause disturbances. Some of these issues are discussed in Chapter 10. 5.9 Exercises 1. Consider system on reac hable canonical form. Sho
