The objective of this work is to study the benefits that delay can provide in simplifying the control process of large-scale systems, motivated by the availability of different types of delays in man-made and biological systems. We show that a continuous-time linear time-invariant (LTI) controller can be approximated by a simple controller that mainly uses delay blocks instead of integrators. More specifically, three methods are proposed to approximate a pre-designed stabilizing LTI controller… CONTINUE READING
