Abstract

Precision and reliability of timescales are of importance in many situations, in particular in satellite navigation systems (i.e, Galileo system). Motivated by the necessity to improve the precision and the reliability of such clock signals, we have explored the possibility to exploit control theory in clock steering methods. First of all we provide a more robust theoretical framework for the analysis of the process. Two novel control algorithms are here proposed aiming to meet metrological specifications. Numerical simulations have been performed in order to evaluate the performances of the new control systems.
