The merit of a multiplicative control mode is demonstrated by means of an optimal-control synthesis procedure that is applied to a bilinear regulator problem. Not only is the bilinear regulator superior to the linear regulator for step inputs, but it exhibits far better performance for sinusoidal inputs. Though bilinear control systems are very common in nature, for the most part, they have been overlooked in engineering despite their advantages.
