Gain Scheduling: Potential Hazards and Possible Remedies

Jeff S. Shamma, Michael Athans

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A common gain scheduling rule-of-thumb is to “schedule on a slow variable.” Current gain scheduling practice is necessarily limited to slow variations in the scheduling variable. These limitations are revealed to be consequences of fundamental control concepts. Furthermore, it is shown how a reformulation of the gain scheduling procedure can lead towards ultimately removing these restrictions.
