Causality and stability conditions for the control of a linear distributed system

  • E. M. Solnechnyi
Determinate Systems


For a linear distributed system controlled by nonlinear feedback, a sufficient condition for the existence, causality, and boundedness of an operator that transforms the external action and initial state of the system to the behavior of the output of a closed-loop system is formulated. A procedure is designed for determining the class of feedbacks ensuring the causality and stability of the closed-loop control system. It is applicable to a linear one-dimensional heat conduction system controlled by nonlinear temperature feedback to the boundary action.
