Complexity Manipulation Based Optimization
The goal of this chapter is study the benefits of the manipulation of TP model complexity on the control design example of the 3DoF aeroelastic wing section including friction. From a control perspective, the goal is to increase the parameter domain of the controller in contrast to the results obtained earlier. The motivation behind this goal is that one of the parameters is wind speed, and it is a natural practical requirement that the range of this parameter should be increased while maintaining the validity of the controller. It will be shown that the complexity relaxation of the TP model allows us, for instance, to considerably increase the parameter domain in which the LMIs are still feasible and still obtain a viable controller. The results of this chapter are based on the work .
