SUMMARY Parameter-dependent control techniques are applied to a thrust vectored ducted fan engine. The synthesis technique is based on the solution of Linear Matrix Inequalities and produces a controller which achieves speciied performance against the worst-case time variation of measurable parameters entering the plant in a linear fractional manner. Thus the plant can have widely varying dynamics over the operating range. The controller designed performs extremely well, and is compared to… CONTINUE READING
