Paper Abstract

An Extended Proximate Time-Optimal Servomechanism (XPTOS) is developed for the control of a flexible structure with a single structural mode. The resulting control system is closed-loop , and embodies in its structure the characteristics of a time-optimal control law and the fine tracking properties of a properly tuned linear regulator. Simulation results demonstrate the performance of the XPTOS, and its robustness in the face of uncertain plant parameters.
