A Method with Intergral Criteria to Determine Optimal Transitions between Control Modes 2014-36-0368

Control systems that can switch between control modes have the advantage of being simpler to design than an equivalent system with a single mode. However, the transition between control modes can introduce steps or overshootings in the state variables, and this can degrade the performance or even damage the system.
In this work, we will use integral criteria in an original way, to determine a coefficient on the system which should optimize the trajectory of the control signal, during the switching between two modes. Effectively, each transition will be done by a subsystem specific for it, according to the selected criterion.
The simulations will be made in MATRIXx, using as models the system of control of attitude of the Multimission Platform, and a system which keeps the synchrony between two induction motors.
