Abstract
In this paper we apply, recently developed, distributed control techniques to the control of an adaptive secondary mirror. The control technique implemented uses the l2 induced norm as a performance criterion. A finite difference model for the mirror is developed using shift operators. We determine the necessary constants from the physical properties of the mirror, from the typical dimensions of such a system, and from our performance requirements for operating the telescope in the near infrared region.The closed loop system is simulated by modelling the deformable mirror in Abaqus, a commercial finite element software, and by implementing the controller in Matlab.
