Abstract : The objectives of this research project were to develop structural control algorithms that addressed a variety of modeling and actuator complexities, such as: uncertainties in structural parameters; time-varying structural parameters; and limited actuator authority. The initial investigation studied use of the LQR/LQG control algorithm; however, the two final years of study were directed towards development of a robust H-infinity control algorithm which considered these complexities.
