Abstract : "A control problem of a class of input-delayed linear systems is considered in this paper. Due to the delay
t in the input, any designed feedback controller can only be engaged after t t . Then, this can become the cause of
slow regulation since any feedback information cannot be available during the delay. So, the initial function defined
for t t 0 is engaged as an ‘initial non-feedback input’ for 0 t t , which governs the system behavior
during this initial time period. There have been numerous research results on the control of input-delayed linear
systems by far. Yet, there have been no results on the examination and design of this initial function. Utilizing a
time optimal control in the existing results, we show that if some pre-feedback as the initial function is engaged,
the system response of the input-delayed linear system can be much improved, and a bang-bang input function is a
good candidate as a pre-feedback which can provide better starting state values for the state feedback controller in
order to perform the fast regulation. Two examples are given for the illustration of our results."
