  • In this paper, the development of a software tool for linear parameter varying (LPV)/linear fractional transformation (LFT) modeling and data-based validation techniques is described. This tool represents a step towards industrialization of these techniques, which although still suffering from a certain theoretical complexity are increasingly shown to help deal effectively with important real world applications. The tool is a key component for the development of an integrated LPV/LFT framework for control modeling, analysis, and design which is also a necessity for successful transfer of LPV/LFT techniques to industry. The focus of this paper is on describing the development of the integrated modeling/validation software and examining the applicability problems associated with these techniques. The technical readiness of the tool is exemplified through the development of validated LFT models used for LPV control design and analysis of a nonlinear longitudinal model of the NASA HL-20 re-entry vehicle. © 2006 IEEE.
