Control and Dynamic Systems: Advances in Theory and Applications, Volume 50: Robust Control System Techniques and Applications, Part 1 of 2 is a two-volume sequence devoted to the issues and application of robust control systems techniques.
This volume is composed of 10 chapters and begins with a presentation of the important techniques for dealing with conflicting design objectives in control systems. The subsequent chapters describe the robustness techniques of systems using differential-difference equations; the design of a wide class of robust nonlinear systems, the techniques for dealing with the problems resulting from the use of observers in robust systems design, and the effective techniques for the robust control on non-linear time varying of tracking control systems with uncertainties. These topics are followed by discussions of the effective techniques for the robust control on non-linear time varying of tracking control systems with uncertainties and for incorporating adaptive control techniques into a (non-adaptive) robust control design. Other chapters present techniques for achieving exponential and robust stability for a rather general class of nonlinear systems, techniques in modeling uncertain dynamics for robust control systems design, and techniques for the optimal synthesis of these systems. The last chapters provide a generalized eigenproblem solution for both singular and nonsingular system cases. These chapters also look into the stability robustness design for discrete-time systems.
This book will be of value to process and systems engineers, designers, and researchers.
