Paper 1: “A suboptimal linear control law is synthesized for parametrically disturbed linear systems, and the necessary approximation for applying the law to a class of nonlinear systems is given. The law is then extended to linear systems with stochastically disturbed parameters by using appropriate approximations”—Abstract, page 2.

Paper 2: “The application of optimal control theory to damp the electromechanical oscillations associated with the transient conditions in power systems has been given little attention. A suboptimal control law which minimizes the sum of the performance indices of the two linear systems given by a piecewise linear model of a power system improves the transient stability better than the usual "optimal" control law obtained from a linearized model. Further, the suboptimal control law presented in this paper assures stability of the system for all disturbances resulting in rotor oscillations of magnitudes less than a preselected limit--Abstract, page 10.
