Design and optimisation of restricted complexity controller: a modal approach for reduced-order controllers. (English) Zbl 1293.93127

Summary: This article presents a new powerful design technique for reducing an initial high-order controller. For this, the initial closed-loop behavior is studied by modal analysis. Then, this behavior will be reproduced to a desired level of precision by redesigning the controller using the Robust Modal Control. The leading closed-loop eigenstructure of the system is assigned and the dynamic of the reduced-order controller is extracted from the relevant dynamic of the initial controller. This leads to a low-order controller, with a closed-loop behavior similar to the initial one.
