Decoupling of square singular systems via proportional state feedback. (English) Zbl 0726.93013

The author presents necessary and sufficient conditions for the decoupling of a solvable square singular system \(E\dot x(t)=Ax(t)+Bu(t)\) with output \(y=Dx(t)\), via an admissible control law of the form \(u(t)=Kx(t)+Hr(t)\) (where H is a square nonsingular matrix). He shows that there exists a proportional state feedback for which the system’s transfer function is a diagonal, nonsingular and proper rational matrix. The proofs of the main results are constructive and provide a procedure for computing an appropriate proportional state feedback.
