We consider here the row-by-row decoupling of linear timeinvariant systems by proportional and derivative state feedback. Our contribution, with respect to previous results, is that our procedure is based on simple operator (say matrices) manipulations, without any need to use a canonical form. The only assumptions for applying such a decoupling strategy are that the system is right invertible (which is a necessary condition to ensure solvability) and minimum phase. An illustrative example is… CONTINUE READING
