Unformatted text preview: once the gain matrix
K is chosen, there is no further freedom in the choice of L and H .
The specific form of the new matrix L in (12) suggests another option for
implementation of the dynamics of the reducedorder observer, namely: ˆˆ
z = Ax2 + Ly + Hu (14) where L = A 21 − KA11 (15) A blockdiagram representation of this option is given in Figure 1 (b) The selection of the gain matrix K of the reducedorder observer may be accomplished
by any of the methods that can be used to select the gains of the fullorder observer as
discussed in the previous article. In particular, poleplacement, using any convenient
algorithm is feasible.
The gain matrix can also be obtained as the solution of a reducedorder Kalman filtering
problem, taking into account the crosscorrelation between the observation noise and the
process noise.

We can’t
expect to achieve anything better than this. Unfortunately, P ( ∞ ) = 0 is not the only
possible steadystate solution to (23). To test whether it is, it is necessary to check
whether the eigenvalues of the resulting observer dynamics matrix ˆ
