Title: METHODS AND APPARATUSES FOR ADVANCED MULTIPLE VARIABLE CONTROL WITH HIGH DIMENSION MULTIPLE CONSTRAINTS
Abstract:
A method and apparatus for multiple variable control of a physical plant with high dimension multiple constraints, includes: mathematically decoupling primary controlled outputs of a controlled physical plant from one another and shaping the pseudo inputs/controlled outputs desired plant dynamics; tracking primary control references and providing pseudo inputs generated by desired primary output tracking for selection; mathematically decoupling constraints from one another; mathematically decoupling constraints from non-traded off primary controlled outputs of the controlled physical plant; shaping the pseudo inputs/constraint outputs desired plant dynamics; tracking constraint control limits; providing pseudo inputs generated by desired constraint output tracking for selection; selecting the most limiting constraints and providing the smooth pseudo inputs for the decoupled primary control; and controlling the physical plant using the decoupled non-traded off primary controlled outputs and the decoupled selected most limiting constraints.
