Open loop control of higher order systems

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper we solve the problem of computing open loop controls that steer a higher order system from the equilibrium to a prescribed state, or partial state. Using unimodular embeddings of coprime polynomial factorizations, we derive an explicit formula for the inverse of the reachability map. Proceeding along the same lines we outline the connection to flat outputs and develop an independent approach for open loop control.
