Issues in the design of switched linear control systems: A benchmark study
Leith , Douglas and Shorten, Robert and Leithead, William and Mason, Oliver and Curran, Paul (2003) Issues in the design of switched linear control systems: A benchmark study. International Journal of Adaptive Control and Signal Processing, 17 (2). pp. 103-118. ISSN 0890-6327
In this paper we present a tutorial overview of some of the issues that arise in the design of switched linear control systems. Particular emphasis is given to issues relating to stability and control system realisation. A benchmark regulation problem is then presented. This problem is most naturally solved by means of a switched control design. The challenge to the community is to design a control system that meets the required performance specifications and permits the application of rigorous analysis techniques. A simple design solution is presented and the limitations of currently available analysis techniques are illustrated with reference to this example.
