Stable gain scheduling through bumpless transfer

Brandon Hencey, Andrew Alleyne

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


In this paper, a method of interpolating a priori designed controllers for gain scheduling using notions developed in antiwindup and bumpless transfer is discussed. In contrast with many approaches that guarantee stability by design of of the controllers as a set, it is often desirable to design and tune each controller individually and gain schedule the resulting controllers. Using the bumpless transfer techniques discussed, this paper puts forth a method of scheduling the controllers in a stable manner for sufficiently slow scheduling variables.
