Feedback Linearization Optimal Control Approach for Bilinear Systems in CSTR Chemical Reactor


This paper considers the optimal control problem for the bilinear system based on state feedback. Based on the concept of relative order of the output with respect to the input, first we change a bilinear system to a pseudo linear system model through the coordinate transformation. Then based on the theory of linear quadratic optimal control, the optimal controller is designed by solving the Riccati equation and introducing state feedback with state prediction. At last, the simulation results in CSTR Chemical reactor show the effectiveness of the method.
