Coordinate coupling raises serious numerical, analysis, and control design problems that grow with the size of the system. On the other hand, decoupled dynamic equations facilitate numerical computation, analysis, control design since each equation can be treated independently. Unfortunately, most practical, complex systems, are not naturally decoupled so developing accurate enough decoupled approximations is of interest.In this talk the issue of building such accurate decoupled approximations for second order systems is addressed by leveraging concepts from robust control theory.
