Abstract

Vibrational control is a nonclassical open-loop control principle which proposes a utilization of zero mean parametric excitation of a dynamic system for achieving control objectives. Excitations introduced into the incident power of a laser beam in a laser-illuminated thermochemical reaction are shown to be capable of inducing asymptotically stable operating regimes with averages located at initially unstable steady state. This opens a possibility of alleviating measurement-related and actuator-related difficulties associated with conventional methods in a stabilization of laser-driven systems.
