I've been looking at nonlinear control system and fuzzy control in particular.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If I simply want to do trajectory control (have the system to follow a certain trajectory in phase space), can I use much simpler local linear control?

I mean, for each point in phase space, do a local linearization and find the local linear control transfer function, as long as the system stay close to the intended trajectory this would work right?
