Abstract

This paper considers designs of decentralized controllers for continuous-time linear time-invariant multivariable control systems. The purpose is to show how to attain robust stability and robust performance of decentralized control systems by sequential design procedure. Compared with independent designs in which each controller block is designed independently of others, sequential designs can reduce conservatism associated with the controller design since they can exploit information about the other loops which have been already designed. A novel method of sequential designs for the robust performance are proposed. Moreover, an approach to a kind of failure tolerance is considered. The proposed sequential design procedure is based on expanding construction of decentralized control systems, so that the proposed methods can deal with extension of subsystems.
