A cyber-physical system (CPS) combines active actuation, sensing, and a control algorithm to virtually replicate a physical structure with desired inertia, stiffness, and damping properties. The interaction of a CPS with a fluid flow can be used to study complex fluid-structure interaction phenomena. This paper highlights some of the control design challenges associated with the design of CPS and elaborates on issues pertaining to performance and lag. A model for including the interaction force and a potential work-around to inertia compensation are presented. Finally, a case study compares classical PID control with H based model-matching control design.
