We’ll consider two types of regulation problems; full regulation problems and nonfull regulation problems. Full regulation problems arise when the number of actuators is equal to or greater than the number of degreesof freedom that are being controlled. Nonfull regulation problems arise when fewer actuators than controlled degreesoffreedom are used. Full regulation is prevalent in engineering systems. When a system is fully regulated the multidegree offreedom system can be treated as single degree offreedom systems, in which each mode is regulated one independent of the other and the regulation problem can be separated from the tracking problem. We’ll also see that full regulation tends to be more cost efficient than non full regulation, and less sensitive to unknown parameters. In nonfull regulation problems, just a few actuators can regulate a system’s response, at least MAE 461: DYNAMICS AND CONTROLS REGULATING MULTIDIMENSIONAL SYSTEMS in theory. Nonfull regulation problems, although not always practical, are quite interesting in that they resemble a “juggling act” that appears on the surface to be impossible. This chapter concludes with the problem of nonfull regulation. 1. PID Regulation of Modes Recall that the modal equations of an undamped two degreeoffreedom system are (11  1) ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( 2 2 2 20 2 1 1 2 10 1 t Q t q t q t Q t q t q = + = + ω ω & & & & where now represent modal control forces. Since Eq. (11  1) is in the form of single degreeoffreedom systems, we can employ PID feedback to regulate each mode. Consider PID feedback modal forces ) ( and ) ( 2 1 t Q t Q (11  2) ∫ − − − = ∫ − − − = dt t q i t q h t q g t Q dt t q i t q h t q g t Q ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 & & Notice in Eq. (11  2) that the feedback forces are independent of each other, i.e., that the first modal force is a function of the first modal coordinate and that the second modal force is a function of the second modal coordinate. This independence is consistent with the observation made earlier that the first modal force affects only the first modal coordinate and that the second modal force affects only the second modal coordinate. Comparing Eq. (11  1) and Eq. (11  2) with Eq. (7  30) and Eq. (7  35), we get the PID modal control gains MAE 461: DYNAMICS AND CONTROLS REGULATING MULTIDIMENSIONAL SYSTEMS (11  3) ) ( 2 2 2 2 2 2 1 2 1 2 2 2 2 2 1 r r r r r r r r r r r r r r i h g β α α α α α ω β α α α + = − + = − + + = Equation (11  2) is a modal control law . It expresses modal forces in terms of modal displacements, modal velocities and integrals of modal displacements. But actuators produce physical forces not modal forces and sensors perform measurements of physical quantities not...
