Abstract

State and output dead beat controllability tests for a very large class of polynomial systems with rational coefficients may be based on the Quantifier Elimination by Partial Cylindrical Algebraic Decomposition (QEPCAD) symbolic computation program. The method is unified for a very large class of systems and can handle one- or two-sided control constraints. Families of minimum time state/output dead beat controllers are obtained. The computational complexity of the test is prohibitive for general polynomial systems, but by constraining the structure of the system we may beat the curse of complexity. A computationally less expensive algebraic test for output dead beat controllability for a cl..
