State Feedback for Control of Multimode Plasma Instabilities

  • Amiya K. Sen
  • Published 1979 in IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science


Using the concet of " normal mode states" of a plasma, a state feedback scheme is developed by which eigenfrequencies can be placed in stable half of the complex frequency plane. All the dynamic states of a plasma instability are approximately recovered from a single properly placed sensor signal via a state reconstructor. Then state feedback is used based… (More)
