Minimum energy control of fractional positive continuous-time linear systems

Open access


The minimum energy control problem for the fractional positive continuous-time linear systems is formulated and solved. Sufficient conditions for the existence of solution to the problem are established. A procedure for solving of the problem is proposed and illustrated by a numerical example.
