8.8.  COMBINED COMPENSATOR DESIGN INCLUDING A CONTROLLER AND AN ESTIMATOR FOR A REGULATOR SYSTEM

This section considers the combined compensator design of a controller and estimator for a regulator in which the reference input equals zero, and for the case where the reference input is finite. The block diagram of this regulator is shown in Figure 8.19, which combines the concepts illustrated in Figure 8.3 for the controller and Figure 8.18 for the estimator. We wish to determine in this system the effect of using the estimated state vector Image(t), instead of x(t) on the system dynamics [8].

Let us consider the effect of driving the controller with Image(t) instead of x(t). From the process dynamics shown in Figure 8.3,

Image

From Figure 8.19, we also know that

Image

Therefore, substituting Eq (8.143) into Eq (8.142), we obtain

In terms of the state estimation error (t) defined in Eq (8.122), Eq ...
