Measure of controllability for actuator placement Academic Article uri icon


  • A new measure of controllability for linear time invariant dynamical systems is introduced. The controllability measure is designed especially to guide the placement of actuators to control vibrating structures. An example is presented, and the design of optimal feedback control laws for each of several actuator configurations supports the practical value of the new controllability measure. © 1991 American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Inc., All rights reserved.
