Abstract

We consider the problem of minimizing the response of a plant output to a stochastic disturbance using a control law that relies on the output of a noisy communication channel. We discuss a lower bound on the performance achievable at a specified terminal time using nonlinear timevarying communication and control strategies, and show that this bound may be achieved using strategies that are linear.
