This chapter describes an extension of the FTC scheme described in Chap.  3 and considers Linear Parameter Varying (LPV) systems rather than LTI systems . LPV systems can be considered as an extension or generalisation of LTI systems. They represent a certain class of finite dimensional linear systems, in which the entries of the state-space matrices continuously depend on a time varying parameter vector which belongs to a bounded compact set. The objective is to synthesise an FTC scheme which will work over a wider range of operating conditions . To design the virtual control law , the varying input distribution matrix is factorised into a fixed and a varying matrix. As discussed earlier in the text, the virtual control law , designed using the ISM technique, is translated into the actual actuator commands using a CA scheme .
