 Frequency-weighted coprime factorization controller reduction.
@section Madievski
@findex Madievski

 Demonstration of frequency-weighted controller reduction.
 The system considered in this example has been studied by Madievski and
 Anderson [1] and comprises four spinning disks.  The disks are connected by a
 flexible rod, a motor applies torque to the third disk, and the angular
 displacement of the first disk is the variable of interest. The state-space
 model of eighth order is non-minimumphase and unstable.
 The continuous-time LQG controller used in [1] is open-loop stable and of
 eighth order like the plant.  This eighth-order controller shall be reduced by
 frequency-weighted singular perturbation approximation (SPA).
 The major aim of this reduction is the preservation of the closed-loop
 transfer function.  This means that the error in approximation of the
 controller @var{K} by the reduced-order controller @var{Kr} is minimized by
 @iftex
 @tex
 $$ \underset{K_r}{\min} \ || W \ (K - K_r) \ V ||_{\infty} $$
 @end tex
 @end iftex
 @ifnottex
 @example
 min ||W (K-Kr) V||
  Kr               inf
 @end example
 @end ifnottex
 where weights @var{W} and @var{V} are dictated by the requirement to preserve
 (as far as possible) the closed-loop transfer function.  In minimizing the
 error, they cause the approximation process for @var{K} to be more accurate at
 certain frequencies.  Suggested by [1] is the use of the following stability
 and performance enforcing weights:
 @iftex
 @tex
 $$ W = (I - G K)^{-1} G,  \qquad V = (I - G K)^{-1} $$
 @end tex
 @end iftex
 @ifnottex
 @example
              -1                      -1
 W = (I - G K)   G,      V = (I - G K)
 @end example
 @end ifnottex
 This example script reduces the eighth-order controller to orders four and two
 by the function call
 @code{Kr = spaconred (G, K, nr, 'feedback', '-')}
 where argument @var{nr} denotes the desired order (4 or 2).  The key-value
 pair @code{'feedback', '-'} allows the reduction of negative feedback
 controllers while the default setting expects positive feedback controllers.
 The frequency responses of the original and reduced-order controllers are
 depicted in figure 1, the step responses of the closed loop in figure 2.
 There is no visible difference between the step responses of the closed-loop
 systems with original (blue) and fourth order (green) controllers.
 The second order controller (red) causes ripples in the step response, but
 otherwise the behavior of the system is unaltered.  This leads to the
 conclusion that function @command{spaconred} is well suited to reduce the
 order of controllers considerably, while stability and performance are
 retained.

 The user-defined weighting functions @var{W1}, @var{W2} and @var{W3} bound the largest
 singular values of the closed-loop transfer functions @var{S} (for performance),
 @var{K S} (to penalize large inputs) and @var{T} (for robustness and to avoid
 sensitivity to noise), respectively [1].
 A few points are to be considered when choosing the weights.
 The weigths @var{Wi} must all be proper and stable.  Therefore if one wishes,
 for example, to minimize @var{S} at low frequencies by a weighting @var{W1} including
 integral action, 
 @iftex
 @tex
 $\frac{1}{s}$

 Similarly one might be interested in weighting @var{K S} with a non-proper weight
 @var{W2} to ensure that @var{K} is small outside the system bandwidth.
 The trick here is to replace a non-proper term such as
 @iftex
 @tex
 $ 1 + \tau_1 s $ by $ \frac{1 + \tau_1 s}{1 + \tau_2 s} $, where

 Loop shaping H-infinity synthesis.  Compute positive feedback controller using 
 the McFarlane/Glover loop shaping design procedure [1].
 Using a precompensator @var{W1} and/or a postcompensator @var{W2}, the singular values
 of the nominal plant @var{G} are shaped to give a desired open-loop shape.
 The nominal plant @var{G} and shaping functions @var{W1}, @var{W2} are combined to
 form the shaped plant, @var{Gs} where @code{Gs = W2 G W1}.
 We assume that @var{W1} and @var{W2} are such that @var{Gs} contains no hidden modes.
 It is relatively easy to approximate the closed-loop requirements by the following
 open-loop objectives [2]:

 The aim of model reduction is to find an LTI system @var{Gr} of order
 @var{nr} (nr < n) such that the input-output behaviour of @var{Gr}
 approximates the one from original system @var{G}.

 BST is a relative error method which tries to minimize

 Hankel singular values greater than @code{MAX(TOL1,NS*EPS)};
 @var{nr} can be further reduced to ensure that
 @code{HSV(NR-NU) > HSV(NR+1-NU)}.

 @item 'method'
 Approximation method for the H-infinity norm.
 Valid values corresponding to this key are:
 @table @var
 @item 'sr-bta', 'b'
 Use the square-root Balance & Truncate method.
 @item 'bfsr-bta', 'f'
 Use the balancing-free square-root Balance & Truncate method.  Default method.
 @item 'sr-spa', 's'
 Use the square-root Singular Perturbation Approximation method.
 @item 'bfsr-spa', 'p'
 Use the balancing-free square-root Singular Perturbation Approximation method.
 @end table

 @item 'alpha'
 Specifies the ALPHA-stability boundary for the eigenvalues
 of the state dynamics matrix @var{G.A}.  For a continuous-time
 system, ALPHA <= 0 is the boundary value for
 the real parts of eigenvalues, while for a discrete-time
 system, 0 <= ALPHA <= 1 represents the
 boundary value for the moduli of eigenvalues.
 The ALPHA-stability domain does not include the boundary.
 Default value is 0 for continuous-time systems and
 1 for discrete-time systems.

 @item 'beta'
 Use @code{[G, beta*I]} as new system @var{G} to combine
 absolute and relative error methods.
 BETA > 0 specifies the absolute/relative error weighting
 parameter.  A large positive value of BETA favours the
 minimization of the absolute approximation error, while a
 small value of BETA is appropriate for the minimization
 of the relative error.
 BETA = 0 means a pure relative error method and can be
 used only if rank(G.D) = rows(G.D) which means that
 the feedthrough matrice must not be rank-deficient.
 Default value is 0.

 @item 'tol1'
 If @var{'order'} is not specified, @var{tol1} contains the tolerance for
 determining the order of reduced system.
 For model reduction, the recommended value of @var{tol1} lies
 in the interval [0.00001, 0.001].  @var{tol1} < 1.
 If @var{tol1} <= 0 on entry, the used default value is
 @var{tol1} = NS*EPS, where NS is the number of
 ALPHA-stable eigenvalues of A and EPS is the machine
 precision.
 If @var{'order'} is specified, the value of @var{tol1} is ignored.

 @item 'tol2'
 The tolerance for determining the order of a minimal
 realization of the phase system (see METHOD) corresponding
 to the ALPHA-stable part of the given system.
 The recommended value is TOL2 = NS*EPS.  TOL2 <= TOL1 < 1.
 This value is used by default if @var{'tol2'} is not specified
 or if TOL2 <= 0 on entry.

 @item 'equil', 'scale'
 Boolean indicating whether equilibration (scaling) should be
 performed on system @var{G} prior to order reduction.
 Default value is true if @code{G.scaled == false} and
 false if @code{G.scaled == true}.
 Note that for @acronym{MIMO} models, proper scaling of both inputs and outputs
 is of utmost importance.  The input and output scaling can @strong{not}
 be done by the equilibration option or the @command{prescale} command
 because these functions perform state transformations only.
 Furthermore, signals should not be scaled simply to a certain range.
 For all inputs (or outputs), a certain change should be of the same
 importance for the model.

 @var{nr} (nr < n) such that the input-output behaviour of @var{Gr}
 approximates the one from original system @var{G}.

 SPA is an absolute error method which tries to minimize

 Boolean indicating whether equilibration (scaling) should be
 performed on system @var{G} prior to order reduction.
 Default value is true if @code{G.scaled == false} and

 is of utmost importance.  The input and output scaling can @strong{not}
 be done by the equilibration option or the @command{prescale} command
 because these functions perform state transformations only.
 Furthermore, signals should not be scaled simply to a certain range.
 For all inputs (or outputs), a certain change should be of the same
 importance for the model.

 @item 'alpha'
 Specifies the ALPHA-stability boundary for the eigenvalues

 @item 'equil', 'scale'
 Boolean indicating whether equilibration (scaling) should be
 performed on @var{G} and @var{K} prior to order reduction.
 Default value is false if both @code{G.scaled == true, K.scaled == true}
 and true otherwise.
 Note that for @acronym{MIMO} models, proper scaling of both inputs and outputs
 is of utmost importance.  The input and output scaling can @strong{not}
 be done by the equilibration option or the @command{prescale} command
 because these functions perform state transformations only.
 Furthermore, signals should not be scaled simply to a certain range.
 For all inputs (or outputs), a certain change should be of the same
 importance for the model.

 @strong{Option Keys and Values}
 @table @var
 @item 'n'
 The desired order of the resulting state-space system @var{sys}.
 @var{s} > @var{n} > 0.

 @item 's'
 The number of block rows @var{s} in the input and output
 block Hankel matrices to be processed.  @var{s} > 0.
 In the MOESP theory, @var{s} should be larger than @var{n},
 the estimated dimension of state vector.

 @item 'alg', 'algorithm'
 Specifies the algorithm for computing the triangular
 factor R, as follows:
 @table @var
 @item 'C'
 Cholesky algorithm applied to the correlation
 matrix of the input-output data.  Default method.
 @item 'F'
 Fast QR algorithm.
 @item 'Q'
 QR algorithm applied to the concatenated block
 Hankel matrices.
 @end table

 @item 'tol'
 Absolute tolerance used for determining an estimate of
 the system order.  If  @var{tol} >= 0,  the estimate is
 indicated by the index of the last singular value greater
 than or equal to @var{tol}.  (Singular values less than @var{tol}
 are considered as zero.)  When  @var{tol} = 0,  an internally
 computed default value,  @var{tol} = @var{s}*@var{eps}*SV(1),  is used,
 where  SV(1)  is the maximal singular value, and @var{eps} is
 the relative machine precision.
 When @var{tol} < 0,  the estimate is indicated by the
 index of the singular value that has the largest
 logarithmic gap to its successor.  Default value is 0.

 @item 'rcond'
 The tolerance to be used for estimating the rank of
 matrices. If the user sets @var{rcond} > 0,  the given value
 of @var{rcond} is used as a lower bound for the reciprocal
 condition number;  an m-by-n matrix whose estimated
 condition number is less than  1/@var{rcond}  is considered to
 be of full rank.  If the user sets @var{rcond} <= 0,  then an
 implicitly computed, default tolerance, defined by
 @var{rcond} = m*n*@var{eps},  is used instead, where @var{eps} is the
 relative machine precision.  Default value is 0.

 Execute all available tests at once.
 The Octave control package is based on the @uref{http://www.slicot.org, @acronym{SLICOT}} library.
 @acronym{SLICOT} needs @acronym{BLAS} and @acronym{LAPACK} libraries which are also prerequisites
 for Octave itself.
 In case of failing tests, it is highly recommended to use
 @uref{http://www.netlib.org/blas/, Netlib's reference @acronym{BLAS}} and
 @uref{http://www.netlib.org/lapack/, @acronym{LAPACK}}
 for building Octave.  Using @acronym{ATLAS} may lead to sign changes
 in some entries of the state-space matrices.
 In general, these sign changes are not 'wrong' and can be regarded as
 the result of state transformations.  Such state transformations
 (but not input/output transformations) have no influence on the
 input-output behaviour of the system.  For better numerics,
 the control package uses such transformations by default when
 calculating the frequency responses and a few other things.
 However, arguments like the Hankel singular Values (@acronym{HSV}) must not change.
 Differing @acronym{HSV}s and failing algorithms are known for using Framework Accelerate
 from Mac OS X 10.7.
