**On some characterization of invariant and decoupling zeros of singular systems**

Jerzy Tokarzewski(Military University of Technology, Poland ) |

*(E,A,B,C,D)*, where

*E*is singular but the pencil

*sE-A*is regular, is presented. These zeros are characterized as invariant zeros of an appropriate linear system

*S(A,B,C,D)*. Several numerical examples are included to illustrate the proposed results as well as to discuss different definitions of zeros.

**Diagnostics of processes in decentralized structures**

Jan Maciej Kościelny(Warsaw University of Technology, Poland ) |

Formalized description of an object of diagnosis as well as general rules for diagnosis formulation have been presented in the paper. The method of hierarchical description of the object of diagnosis has been given. Decentralized structures have feedbacks between the subobjects that cause symptoms of faults in one subobject to appear in other ones. Rules for fault isolation in such structures have been presented. Considerations are illustrated with help of examples.

**An outline of the linear control system synthesis by a proper, stable rational functions approach**

Radosław Ładziński(Warsaw University of Technology, Poland ) |

The main objective of the paper is to show that this form of representation with simultaneous parametrization of all linear controllers that provide internal stability of the closed-loop system can be achieved in the simplest and most natural way by analysing the system shown in Fig. 3 - the so-called basic structure.

Problems of choosing the parameter to meet some important design specifications, viz. a robust asymptotic tracking of the reference signal with disturbance and noise rejection are also considered and illustrated by two representative examples covering the area of continuous- and discrete-time systems.
