Synthesis of LTI Controllers for MIMO LTI Plants
The objective of this chapter is to present quantitative design techniques for synthesizing a controller and a prefilter for a MIMO plant (either known or highly uncertain), in order to achieve desired closed loop specifications. The basic idea is to break the design process down into a series of stages. Each stage of this sequential process is a simplified SISO or MISO feedback problem which is supported by the QFT MatlabTM Toolbox. A solution to the original problem is then simply a combination of the solutions obtained at each stage.
