Abstract : Fixed configuration feedback control often forms the basis for the design of a linear control system. The design freedom is limited to the adjustment of the free parameters of the system. Analytical methods prove to be valuable in these circumstances and the aim is the optimization of a selected index of performance. A suggested index is developed for a regulator system from a comparison of the dynamics of the subject system with those of a desired model along a transient state space trajectory. The result is an optimal system dependent on the initial state chosen for the transient response. The effects of the initial state on the optimal system are investigated and the final selection is based on statistical considerations. (Author)
