Abstract

In cases that a single-range linear controller is proved to be inadequate to achieve the objectives of control, one may still be able to design a linear controller based on two operating regimes of the nonlinear plant. In other words, if a single-range linear controller is not adequate, then jumping to the conclusion that one has to design a nonlinear controller may be erroneous. An algorithm for design of dual-range linear controllers for both the single-variable and multivariable nonlinear systems is presented. Example problems are given to demonstrate the typical results that may be achieved.
