Use of Surrogate Pulse-Response Matrix in the UDCL

S. H. Lam


The universal dynamic control law (UDCL) advocated by this author can achieve ODE-based control objectives without the need for detailed knowledge of the system itself. Thus it is very robust with respect to system uncertainties and unmodeled disturbances. The present paper shows, via an example, how to find a usable "surrogate pulse-response matrix" needed by this control law. A brief discussion on design guidelines for sensors and actuators for easy UDCL implementation is also included.
To be presented at the IFAC Conference on New Technologies for Computer Control, NTCC2001, November 19-22, 2001, Hong Kong, China.
