Decentralized design of feedback control for large-scale systems. (English) Zbl 0669.93005

Kybernetika 24, Suppl. No. 3-6, 97 pp. (1988).
This is a very interesting and useful paper. It surveys and extends the most important and recent results concerning decentralized control problems. Not only structural constraints are taken into account but the design process itself is analysed with care in terms of its possible decentralization. The overall design problem is decomposed in several subproblems which is handled separately. Several principles (or more adequately, techniques) for decentralizing the design process are included, namely: sequential methods, overlapping decomposition, singular perturbations, and other specific design methods for decentralized PI controllers. Many illustrative examples are included.
