Trajectory Control and Interconnection of 1D and nD Systems

  title={Trajectory Control and Interconnection of 1D and nD Systems},
  author={Paula Rocha and J. Wood},
  journal={SIAM J. Control and Optimization},
In this paper we examine the relationship between control viewed as concatenation of trajectories and control viewed as interconnection of systems. We show that, for one-dimensional linear time-invariant systems, the ability to obtain a given subsystem by regular interconnection (a prerequisite for any feedback-type structure) is equivalent to the ability to drive any trajectory into that subsystem. However, in the case of multidimensional systems, the former is a stronger property than the… CONTINUE READING
