AbstractThis paper develops a frequencydomain theory that provides a method to analyze and design sampleddata control systems, including their intersample behaviors. The key idea is to consider the signal space %* A {x(t) 1x(t) = x;= __x, exp (
[email protected] + jnw,r), G= ax [Ix, 11z< m}, where w, is the sampling angular frequency. It is shown that a stable sampleddata system equipped with a strictlyproper prefilter before the sampler maps %* into ZV (=I,) in the steady state. That mapping is denoted by Q(jq) and is referred to as an ‘FR operator’. It is proved that the norm of the sampleddata system as an operator from Lz to L2 is given by maxp
[email protected](jp)\llz,, where $w, (3) is obtained (the convergence of the righthand side is assured, as we show later). Now select one frequency (pn= cp+ nw, (n is an integer) out of the frequency set of (2) and add the sinusoid of this angular frequency, x(t) = x, exp (jqJ)(x,

to the system of Fig. 1. In parallel derivation of (3), we can derive

Here we find that the set of frequency components contained in the steadystate output is the same as the set from which the input is selected. This implies that the frequency mapping made by a sampleddata system in the steady state is closed with respect to that set (i.e. the set given by (2)). In other words, the frequencyseparation property holds in a generalized sense, if we treat the frequency set (2) as a whole. Our intention is to make use of this fact to establish a ‘frequencydomain theory for sampleddata systems’. 2.2.

In addition, if the power of ysteady(t) is proved to be finite, it can be claimed that the sampleddata system maps an SD sinusoid of angular frequency Q to an SD sinusoid of the same angular frequency in the steady state. Conceming the convergence of the series (10) and the finiteness of the power of ysteady(t), we have the following result.
Theorem 1. Assume that A(s) is strictly proper, C(s) is proper, A(s) and C(s) do not have poles at s = j(Q + mu,), m = 0, *l, . . . , B(z) is proper and does not have a pole at z = exp (jQr), and H(s) is a finiteresponse C1 hold. Then, if x E 12, the series of (10) converges absolutely for all m, and the inequality IIyIIi,‘K holds for independent y

Here a finiteresponse C, hold is defined as a hold circuit whose impulse response is piecewise C1 and terminates in a finite time (see Ap endii A). Note that stability of A(s), C(s) and B (z) is not assumed explicitly in Theorem 1. This is because the mapping (10) can be defined without referring to the steady state, and because we need such a treatment later. The proof is given in Appendix B, together with the proof of Theorem 2 given below. Theorem 1 implies that a linear bounded operator a( j Q) from l2 to l2 (= %J

We need this FRoperator representation of a continuoustime system when we study general sampleddata systems in the following. Next consider the parallel connection of p stable systems S,, . , S,,. Here S, are sampleddata systems of Fig. 1 with A(s) being strictly proper or continuoustime systems studied above. Then, since each Sj maps EV into EV in the steady state, the parallel connection does the same. It is evident that the FR matrix of the parallel connection is the sum of the FR matrices of s, ( ) s,,.

NORM OF SAMPLEDDATA SYSTEMS
In this section, the FR operators studied in the preceding section will be related to the L2 operators associated with stable sampleddata systems. The result can be extended to general feedback sampleddata systems, the details of which will be described at the end of the next section. Chen and Francis (1991a) studied L2 stability of sampleddata systems with the structure of Fig. 1. They treated the case when A(s) and B(z) are stable, C(s) = Z, H(s) is the standard zeroorder hold, and A(s) is strictly proper, and proved that the output y(t) belongs to L2 if the input x(t) belongs to Lz. Their result can be extended to the case of general C(s) and H(s) as follows (refer to the remark at the end of Section 2 of Chen and Francis 1991a). Theorem 3. Consider the sampleddata system of Fig. 1. Assume that A(s), B(z) and C(s) are stable, A(s) is strictly proper, and H(s) is a finiteresponse C, hold. Then, if the input x(t) belongs to Lz, the output y(t) also belongs to L2 and satisfies (27) IIY(f) IIL25 K IIQ) IIL2’

Xs,(jq) will be called the SD Fourier transform of x(t) E Lz, and Xn(jq) the nth component uector of Xs,(jq). The L norm of the (transient) output y(t) of the sampleddata system in Fig. 1 is given in terms of the SD Fourier transform of the input and the FR matrix of the system as follows. Theorem 4. Consider the sampleddata system of Fig. 1. Assume that A(s), B(z) and C(s) are stable, A(s) is strictly proper and H(s) is a finiteresponse C1 hold. Then, if the input x(t) belongs to Lz, the output y(t) also belongs to L2, and its norm is given by

where Q(jp) is the FR matrix from x(t) to y(t), and Xsr,( j,) is the SD Fourier transform of x(t). Proof: The first conclusion is included in Theorem 3. The second conclusion is proved in three steps. Step 1. The set of x(t)s that have bounded supports and that are piecewiseconstant is dense in L,. So, it suffices to show (31) under the assumption that x(t) belongs to this set. By this assumption, there is a nonnegative constant K, such that

Theorem 5. Consider the sampleddata system of Fig. 1. Assume that A(s), b(z) and C(s) are stable, A(s) is strictly proper and H(s) is a finiteresponse C, hold. Then the induced norm of the L2 operator Zof the system is given by

Remark 2. In the above proof, (39) was derived
under the assumption that the input x(t) has a bounded support and is piecewiseconstant. But, by using the same argument employed in Step 1. this equality can be validated for the case when the input x(t) is a general member of L,, too. In that case, the infinite sum on the righthand side may not converge at a set of specific values of cp of measure 0, and the equality should be interpreted as the limitinthemean of the righthand side is equal to the lefthand side’.

EQUATIONS
Next, let us consider the sampleddata feedback control system of Fig. 2, where r(t) is the reference signal, u(t) and y(t) are the manipulating input and the controlled output of the plant, d(t) is the disturbance entering into the plant, and t(t) is the detection noise. 6(t), t?(t) and ti((t) are digital signals, and are treated as impulse series. The plant and the prefilters are finitedimensional timeinvariant linear continuoustime systems, so that the transfer matrices P(s), P,(s), F(s) and F,(s) are rational and proper. The digital compensator is a finitedimensional timeinvariant linear discretetime system so that the pulse transfer matrices t’(z) and er(z) are rational and proper, too. It is assumed that the prefilters F(s) and F,(s) are stable and strictly proper, that the closedloop system is stabilized, and that the hold circuit H(s) is a finiteresponse C1 hold. Under the above assumptions, it can be proved, as in the preceding section, that if r(t), d(t) and t(t) belong to L2, u(t) and y(t) also belong to L2 (Chen and Francis, 1991a). This guarantees the existence of Fourier transforms of u(t) and y(t) and allows us to talk about the frequencydomain characteristics of the system. In the following, the frequencydomain relation of the outputs (u(t), y(t)) to (r(t), d(t), t(t)) will

The expressions (66) and (69) for the FR matrices are useful for studying the performances of the sampleddata control systems, as will be found in the next section. However, the righthand sides of these equations result in infinite sums, and so they are not necessarily convenient for calcaluting the component blocks of the closedloop FR matrices. For such purposes, the following equations, which are obtained from (66) by applying the impulse
Remark 3. We can easily see from (70) and (71) that the component blocks of the closedloop FR operators Q,,, QydpQyt, Q,,, Qud and Quz have the same form as that in (10) given for the openloop case, except that Qd has an additional term corresponding to (25) because there is a ‘continuoustime path’ D(s) = Z from d to y. It is generally true that any closedloop FRmatrix of the system in Fig. 2 can be represented as

by suitably defining A(s), B(z), C(s) and D(s) (note that the corresponding b(z) is stable, by the assumption of closedloop stability). If we replace A(s), b(z) and C(s) with these corresponding (pulse) transferfunction matrices introduced as appropriate, Theorems l5 are true also for the closedloop system in Fig. 2 mutatis mutandis.

(A3) D(s) has no poles on the imaginary axis. Although Theorem 2 is not true when A2 is not satisfied (because Q(jq) is not compact in that case), (19) is still true if Al is satisfied. (This follows basically from (B.17) in Appendix B). Theorems 3 and 4 are true for the sampleddata system of Fig. 2 even without the stability assumptions of A(s) and C(s) (note that closedloop stability is assumed throughout this section). Theorem 5 is true for the sampleddata system of Fig. 2 if the stability assumptions of A(s) and C(s) are replaced by l

FR OPERATOR y(jcp) AND SENSITIVITY FR OPERATOR .%jv)
For the sampleddata feedback control system of Fig. 2, defined the sensitivity FR operator P’(jq) and the complementary sensitivity FR operator F(jq) by their matrix expressions as follows:
PhNjv))l II (73) T(b) = [I+ P(j~)C(j~)>l‘P(jcP)C(j~). S(jp) = ]I +
By Theorem 6, the component blocks of S(jp) are given by (59) and (60). From the above definition, S(jq) + T(jq) = I
(74)
is evident. From this relation, the following expression for the component blocks of T(jp) is obtained: T,, = P,,&)K,(j~)
i e(e?F,(jq).
(75)
In the following, we show that Y(j,) and F(jq) have parallel meanings to the sensitivity function and the complementary sensitivity function of continuoustime control systems. The absolute and relative modeling errors of the plant will be denoted by AP(s) and A(s) respectively; i.e. the transfer matrix of the real plant is assumed to be as follows. where we assume that A(s) is stable: P,,,,(s) = P(s) + AP(s) = [I + iz(s)
(76)
First, let us consider the sensitivity of the transfer characteristics. As the representation of the transfer characteristics, we use the closedloop FR operator Q,,(j,) from the reference to the controlled output. Cruz and Perkins (1964) considered the openloop control system of Fig. 4. In the same way as in the derivation of (69), it can be shown that, when P,(s) = P(s), the FR operator from r(t) to yO(t) of this system is equal to Q,,(jq) of (69). Therefore we can use this sytem as the openloop equivalence to the closedloop control system of Fig. 2 when d(t) = 0 and t(t) = 0. Let us compare the variations of the controlled outputs of the openloop system (Fig. 4) and the closedloop system (Fig. 2) when the plant varies as given in (76). The variation AYs&jq) of the output of the openloop system is given by AYs&jq)
= AP(j~)Usb,O(j~)
(77)
where AP(jq) is the FR operator to the absolute error AP(s):

(78)
and U,&jq) is the SD Fourier transform of the manipulating input of the openloop system of Fig. 4. On the other hand, from (50) and (51), the following equations are obtained for the variations AUs, and AYs,,(jq) of the manipulating input and the controlled output of the feedback control system of Fig. 2: AUs,

Therefore AYsb(jp) = ]I +
~,,,~~jcp)~(j~o)l~‘~~~jcp~~~~~jcp~. (80)
Here Us,(j~) is the SD Fourier transform of the manipulating input of the feedback control system when the transfer function of the plant takes its nominal value P(s). Since the system of Fig. 2 and that of Fig. 4 are equivalent when P,(s) = P(s), we have Usb,O(j~) = Us&q). So, by comparing (77) and (SO), we can conclude that the improvement (or deterioration) of the sensitivity due to the feedback control is given by [I + Prea,(j~)C(j~))]‘. This means that we can use S(jp) of (73) as the evaluation of the sensitivity improvement at the nominal point. Second, let us consider the ability of rejecting

the disturbance. From Fig. 2, we find that the disturbance d(t) effects the controlled output ~0) as Ysb(jq) = PAjp)Dsb(jq) (81) if the feedback control is removed. By comparing (81) with (65) and (66), we conclude that the disturbancerejection ability of feedback control is represented by S(jq). Third, let us consider robust stability. When the modeling error of (76) exists, the control system becomes as depicted in Fig. 5, where only the essential parts are shown explicitly. In order to study the stability of Fig. 5, let us consider the system I: obtained by breaking up the dotted line between y(t) and yl(t) in Fig. 5. The system Z has the input y,(t) and the output y(t). By identifying t,(t) of Fig. 5 with t(t) of Fig. 2, the system Z can be regarded as composed of the system of Fig. 2 (with nominal P(s)) and the block A(s) added at the tail of the t(t) line. Since we assume that the system of Fig. 2 is stable for the nominal P(s) and that A(s) is also stable, the system Z is stable. The FR matrix from yl(t) to y(t) of the system C is

6.1. On disturbance rejection and robust stability In the previous section, it was shown that Y( jQ) and Y(jQ) possess parallel properties to the sensitivity and complementary sensitivity functions of continuoustime control systems. Here we should note the following points, which are reflections of the essential nature of sampleddata control and which give important indication about the formulation of sampleddata design problems. First, concerning the disturbancerejection ability represented by Y( jQ), IIs(jQ)ll/,,,,2

follows from the fact that the diagonal component block S,,,,(jQ) converges to the identity matrix. This means that if we measure the disturbancerejection ability without a frequencydependent weight (which takes the characteristics of the disturbance itself and also those of the antialiasing filter into consideration) then we always reach the conclusion that no improvement is made by sampleddata feedback at any angular frequency Q E IO. This is a natural consequence of the fact that sampleddata control can only deal with slow phenomena and cannot suppress a highfrequency distur

bance, which is converted into the lowfrequency range by the frequencyfolding nature of the sampler if no antialiasing filter is equipped. Second, concerning the robust stability condition (85) given in terms of Y(jq), the requirement becomes inhibitingly strict if we separate T(jq) and A(jq) as lIT(j~)ll~lil,<
[llNj~)II~~I~J
’ vq E 4,. (87)
This is caused by the fact that the modeling error /IA(j becomes very large for large w, and hence IIMb> IIW? becomes very large for every cp E lo. 6.2. Relation to the GoodwinSalgado method Goodwin and Salgado (1994) treated the case e,(z) = C(Z) and t(t) = 0 in Fig. 2, and derived the following frequencydomain relation between y(t) and (d(t), r(t)): Y(jw)

The above relations correspond exactly to (the expanded form of) (65) with Z( j,) = 0. Such a treatment is powerful enough to analyze the influences of the reference and the disturbance on the plant output in the frequency domain, and has the advantage of simplicity. On the other hand, our treatment has the advantages that the robust stability can be dealt with in the same framework, that sP(jp) and .Y(j,) can be defined so as to possess exactly parallel meanings to the continuoustime case, and that the H, and HZ control problems can be formulated in the frequency domain (suggested below: see also Section 7). 6.3. H, and Hz design problems In our framework, the H, and Hz problems can be formulated as follows. As an example, consider the problem of minimizing the influence of the disturbance. Let the L, operator from the disturbance d(t) to the controlled output y(t) be denoted by ZYd. then, by Theorem 5,
II=Yycr IIL~u.~= y;

Thus the equivalent

Thus the &type problem formulated previously using the induced norm of Lz operators (Bamieh 1992; Hayakawa et al., 1994: and Pearson, Kabamba and Hara, 1993) recovers its original meaning as the ‘minimax’ optimization in the frequency domain. If we view the problem in this way, the advantages of multirate digital con1986) and trollers (Araki and Hagiwara, generalized sampleddata hold functions (Chammas and Leondes, 1978; Kabamba, 1987) can be understood in a transparent way. Namely, by using such controllers, we obtain the freedom of adjusting the factor H,,(jq) in (59) and (60) and thus gain the possibility of attaining a smaller value of min [max,

6.4. Extension of the FR operator to the Laplacr domain The idea of SDFourier transformation employed in Section 4 can be extended to the Laplace transformation. Namely, define the SD Laplace transform of a signal x(t) t

mapping was termed the FR operator a(jp) of the sampleddata system, and the infinitedimensional matrix Q(jq) representing @(jq) the FR matrix. The FR operator completely characterizes the frequencydomain property of the sampleddata system by (15). It has been shown that the induced norm of the sampleddata system as an operator from L2 to L2 is given by max, I[@(jq) Ilr,,l, (Theorem 5). This tells us that the FR operator satisfies the basic relation between the frequencydomain and the timedomain characterizations that ‘the induced norm as a mapping in the time domain is equal to the supremum of the norm of the frequency transfer matrix’, and can be regarded as the exact sampleddata counterpart of the frequency transfer function of a continuoustime system. The above results have been used to define sampleddata versions of the sensitivity function and the complementary sensitivity function, which have exactly parallel properties to the continuous time case, such as y( j,) + y( jq) = S. They are obtained by solving the frequencydomain feedback equations (50) and (51) for the sampleddata system of Fig. 2 in an explicit form. How to design sampleddata control systems using the above results has also been explained briefly. After the first versions of this paper were presented, substantial advances were made on various problems of sampleddata systems, using the theory developed in this paper. Some of these are listed here. For the purpose of computing the norm of the FR operator, the direct computation of the righthand side of (19) does not seem efficient. A more refined method has been obtained in Hagiwara el al. (1995) based on the relation (19) and an ZZ, problem of sampleddata systems is also solved there. Its importance lies in that it enables us to give the frequency response gains at each frequency cp in a closed form, rather than only the L,induced norm (as in e.g. Chen and Francis, 1990; Bamieh and Pearson, 1992) given as the maximum of the frequency response gains over cp E I0 (see (42)), whereas a general treatment of this problem was already given by Yamamoto and Khargonekar (1993). ZZ2 problems of sampleddata systems with both continuoustime and discretetime inputs and outputs are formulated and solved in Hagiwara and Araki (1995a), where the extended notion called the hybrid FR operator plays an important role. Robust stability problems under possibly unstable linear timeinvariant/ rperiodic perturbations are solved in Hagiwara and Araki (1995b).
