Special Spectral Approach to Solutions of SISO LTI H-Optimization Problems

  • Evgeny I. VeremeyEmail author
Research Article


The paper is devoted to H-optimization problems for linear time invariant (LTI) systems with scalar control, external disturbance and measurement noise. All these problems can be numerically solved with the help of the well-known universal approaches based on Riccati equations, linear matrix inequalities (LMI) or maximum entropy technique. Nevertheless, in our opinion there exists a possibility to increase the computational efficiency of synthesis using a special spectral approach to the above mentioned problems in frequency domain. Some relevant details are discussed and efficient numerical algorithms are proposed for the practical implementation of spectral approach. One of its virtues is a possibility to present optimal solutions in a specific form, which is convenient for investigation.
