A discrete-time control design approach for periodically time-varying systems is introduced. The method employs a period-to-period (point-mapping) formulation of the system’s dynamics and a parametrization of the control input to obtain an equivalent time-invariant discrete-time representation of the system. The representation is generalized to include sampling within the period and varying sampling rates in different feedback loops. The proposed formulation allows for the design of feedback control laws using established discrete-time control methodologies. In this paper, dead-beat and optimal control laws with state- or output-feedback control are presented. An example of a multivariable control design for double inverted pendulum with periodic forcing is used to illustrate the proposed approach.
