The control of asynchronous machines with races
The problem of eliminating the effects of critical races on asynchronous machines is considered in a control theoretic context. State feedback controllers that eliminate the effects of critical races are developed. The results include necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of such controllers and algorithms for their design. When the controllers exist, they eliminate the race effects and control the machine to match a given race-free model.
