Open Access research with a European policy impact...

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 European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

Abstract

A Generalized Minimum Variance control law is derived for the control of nonlinear, possibly time-varying multivariable systems. The solution for the control law is original and was obtained in the time-domain using a simple operator representation of the process. The quadratic cost index involves both error and control signal costing terms. The controller obtained is simple to implement and includes an internal model of the process. In one form might be considered a nonlinear version of the Smith Predictor. However, unlike the Smith Predictor a stabilizing control law can be obtained even for some open-loop unstable processes
