Perspectives in Control of Conditionally Controllable Problems


Limitations imposed on control functions can significantly affect the performance of a linear controller. When applied to the real physical system, such limitations convert a linear function to a nonlinear input signal that alters the convergence or stability of the solution. The main focus of this study is to identify, classify and propose appropriate techniques to overcome such problems. In this regard, we propose an exact definition for a conditionally controllable problem and investigate control function formulations for such problems under the lenses of planning-based and optimization-based methods.
