Abstract : For a given nonlinear system, consider the design of a nonlinear control law such that the following properties hold. First, as in the extended linearization method, linearizations of the closedloop system about constant operating points of the closedloop system achieve specified, linear design objectives. Second, the Taylor series expansion of the closedloop state equation about any constant operating point is such that terms of order 2, 3..., k are zero. or at least are minimized in a certain sense. Conditions under which this can be achieved, while simple to state, are restrictive. Keywords: Nonlinear Control Systems; Control Theory.
