The design of optimum controllers is considered for processes which are described by linear differential equations with one or more independent forcing terms. After presentation of a general method for designing what is usually a nonlinear controller, applications are made to: (a) Design of minimum energy controllers, (b) design of minimum response time controllers [1], and (c) design of minimum error controllers. Various other design criteria and restrictions on controller parameters are also discussed.
