Under appropriate conditions, the dynamics of a control system governed by ordinary differential equations can be formulated in several ways: differential inclusion, control parametrization, flatness parametrization, higher-order inclusions and so on. A plethora of techniques have been proposed for each of these formulations but they are typically not(More)
Proof: The solution for the x2 component of the system with additive impulses can be written explicitly as x2 (t) = e (k+1)h02t x2 (0) 8t 2 (kh; (k + 1)h] : (31) Indeed, for this signal we have _ x2 = 02x2 on the intervals (kh; (k + 1)h], k 0; and at times kh, k 0 we have that x2 (kh) + d k = e kh02kh x2(0) + (1 0 e 0h)e 0(k01)h x2(0) = e 0(k01)h x 2 (0) =(More)
— This work considers a class of second order infinite dimensional parameter systems that often model flexible structures and it is assumed that a number of identical such systems are desired to be synchronized. Using output feedback controllers, the resulting coupled systems are brought in an aggregate form that is conducive to optimization of the(More)
