Regulation and tracking of nonlinear systems
A classical problem in control theory is the design of feedback laws such that the effect of exogenous inputs on selected output variables is asymptotically rejected. This includes problems of asymptotic tracking and disturbance rejection. In this entry, the fundamentals of the theory are presented, as well as constructive procedures for the design of a controller, which embeds an “internal model” of the generator of the exogenous inputs. Current and future research directions are also discussed.
