Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

For part 1, see ibid. December 2001. This three-part article reviews the techniques used to design controllers, employing linear programming, that minimise the maximum amplitude of selected signals. These controllers can satisfy design specifications for saturation characteristics on amplitude or rate. It is shown also how given an existing linear controller it is possible to check if, for a given set of typical inputs, the signal would exceed its maximum amplitude or rate. This is very useful from a practical point of view. The first part (December 2001) gave a tutorial introduction to the topic. This second part reviews controller design.
