Survey of Gain-Scheduling Analysis & Design.
International Journal of Control, 73.
The gain-scheduling approach is perhaps one of the most popular nonlinear control design approaches which has
been widely and successfully applied in fields ranging from aerospace to process control. Despite the wide
application of gain-scheduling controllers and a diverse academic literature relating to gain-scheduling extending
back nearly thirty years, there is a notable lack of a formal review of the literature. Moreover, whilst much of
the classical gain-scheduling theory originates from the 1960s, there has recently been a considerable increase in
interest in gain-scheduling in the literature with many new results obtained. An extended review of the gainscheduling
literature therefore seems both timely and appropriate. The scope of this paper includes the main
theoretical results and design procedures relating to continuous gain-scheduling (in the sense of decomposition
of nonlinear design into linear sub-problems) control with the aim of providing both a critical overview and a
useful entry point into the relevant literature.
