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

A simple method for modifying and improving the robustness of LQG optimal controllers is considered. A sensitivity costing term is introduced into the cost index and a fictitious disturbance signal, which affects robustness margins, is discussed. The influence is somewhat different on full-order and restricted-structure designs, and this is explored. Finally, the effect of a coloured measurement noise model on the robustness of the solution is investigated.
