Relationships Between Optimal and Conventional “Good” Systems - A Simple Case Study 700339

Conventional system synthesis involves indirect repetitive analysis, while optimal synthesis techniques yield direct solutions, given prescribed criteria. This paper presents some of the relationships between a conventionally derived optimum system and the corresponding optimal system, using a second order example. Methods for specifying optimal cost functions which result in good systems are explored.
