Analysis of Peak-Holding Optimalizing Control

H.S. Tsien* and S. Serdengecti

(California Institute of Technology)

Summary

The peak-holding optimalizing control is analyzed under the assumption of first-order input linear group and output linear group. Design charts are constructed for determining the required input drive speed and the consequent hunting loss with specified time constants of the input and output linear groups, the hunting period, and the critical indicated difference for input drive reversal.

Introduction

Optimalizing control was invented by C. S. Draper. Y. T. Li, and H. Laning, Jr[1,2]. Their basic idea can be summarized as follows: In almost all engineering systems, within the restrictions of operation, there is an optimum ...
