4 Benoit Boulet, June 29, Design stabilizing LTI K such that CL system is stable “robust stability” where is the space of stable transfer functions, and is a bound on the uncertainty: Robust control objective P  K Motivation: model validation for robust control

5 Benoit Boulet, June 29, robust control P  K Condition for robust stability as given by small-gain theorem: Motivation: model validation for robust control

6 Benoit Boulet, June 29, robust control P  K Condition for robust stability provides the motivation to make (the uncertainty) as small as possible through better modeling Motivation: model validation for robust control

7 Benoit Boulet, June 29, robust control P  K Conclusion: Robust stability is easier to achieve if the size of the uncertainty is small. Same conclusion for robust performance ( -synthesis) Motivation: model validation for robust control

8 Benoit Boulet, June 29, …uncertainty modeling is key to good control From first principles: Identify nominal values of uncertain gains, time delays, time constants, high freq. dynamics, etc. and bounds on their perturbations e.g.,  + , |  |

14 Benoit Boulet, June 29, Consistency of closed-loop frequency- response data with coprime factor models Model/data consistency problem:Model/data consistency problem: Given noise-free, (open-loop,closed-loop) frequency-response data obtained at frequencies, could the data have been produced by at least one plant model in ?

17 Benoit Boulet, June 29, Lemma 1 Lemma 2 (Schmidt-Mirsky Theorem) Consistency of closed-loop FR data with coprime factor models

19 Benoit Boulet, June 29, Theorem (consistency with CL FR data) Proof (using boundary interpolation theorem) Consistency of closed-loop FR data with coprime factor models

20 Benoit Boulet, June 29, This condition is not sufficient. For sufficiency, the perturbation would have to be shown to stabilize to account for the fact that the closed-loop system was stable with the original controller(s) We can’t just assume this a priori as it would mean that the original controller(s) is already robust!
