The standard H-infinity control problem for dead-time systems

Gjerrit Meinsma and Hans Zwart
The standard H-infinity control problem is solved for systems with a delay. It is shown that for a given bound on the H-infinity norm there exist causal stabilizing controllers that achieve this bound if and only if two rational spectral factorization problems have solutions with a certain nonsingularity property. All sub-optimal controllers are parameterized and the central controller is shown to consist of an interconnection of a finite dimensional system with a system whose impulse response has compact support.
