In recent decades, a comprehensive new framework for the theory and design of control systems has emerged. It treats a range of significant and ubiquitous design problems more effectively than the conventional framework. Control Systems Design brings together contributions from the originators of the new framework in which they explain, expand and revise their research work. It is divided into four parts: - basic principles, including those of matching and inequalities with adjustments for robust matching and matching based on H-infinity methods and linear matrix inequalities; - computational methods, including matching conditions for transient inputs and design of a sampled-data control system; - search methods including search with simulated annealing, genetic algorithms and evaluation of the node array method; - case studies, including applications in distillation, benchmarking critical control of magnetic levitation systems and the use of the principle of matching in cruise control.

This book covers the theory and mathematics needed to understand the concepts in control system design. Chapter 1 deals with compensation network design. Nonlinear control systems, including phase-plane analysis and the Delta method are presented in chapter 2. The analysis and design aspects based on the state variable approach are presented in Chapter 3. The discrete time control systems form the basis for the study of digital control systems in Chapter 4, covering the frequency response, root locus analysis, and stability considerations for discrete-time control systems. The stability analysis based on the Lyapunov method is given in chapter 5. The appendices include two US government articles on industrial control systems (NIST) and the control system design for a solar energy storage system (U.S. Dept. of Energy). Concepts in the text are supported by numerical examples.

Robust Control System Design

Release Date: 2003-12-11
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Robust Control System Design: Advanced State Space Techniques, Second Edition expands upon a groundbreaking and combinatorial approach to state space control system design that fully realizes the critical loop transfer function and robustness properties of state/generalized state feedback control. This edition offers many new examples and exercises to illustrate and clarify new design concepts, approaches, and procedures while highlighting the fact that state/generalized state feedback control can improve system performance and robustness more effectively than other forms of control. Revised and expanded throughout, the second edition presents an improved eigenstructure assignment design method that enhances system performance and robustness more directly and effectively and allows for adjustment of design formulations based on design testing and simulation. The author proposes the systematic controller order adjustment for the tradeoff between performance and robustness based on the complete unification of the state feedback control and static output feedback control. The book also utilizes a more accurate robust stability measure to guide control designs.

Genre: Technology & Engineering

The extraordinary development of digital computers (microprocessors, microcontrollers) and their extensive use in control systems in all fields of applications has brought about important changes in the design of control systems. Their performance and their low cost make them suitable for use in control systems of various kinds which demand far better capabilities and performances than those provided by analog controllers. However, in order really to take advantage of the capabilities of microprocessors, it is not enough to reproduce the behavior of analog (PID) controllers. One needs to implement specific and high-performance model based control techniques developed for computer-controlled systems (techniques that have been extensively tested in practice). In this context identification of a plant dynamic model from data is a fundamental step in the design of the control system. The book takes into account the fact that the association of books with software and on-line material is radically changing the teaching methods of the control discipline. Despite its interactive character, computer-aided control design software requires the understanding of a number of concepts in order to be used efficiently. The use of software for illustrating the various concepts and algorithms helps understanding and rapidly gives a feeling of the various phenomena.

Release Date: 1994
Genre: Technology & Engineering

This book is about Computer Aided Control System Design (CACSD) of the direct process controller. Various methods and tools, representing an up-to-date level of development, are presented by leading experts. Several articles describe main principles and problems associated with modern direct control and with CACSD. Existing tools are presented, including packages for stability analysis of nonlinear systems, adaptive control design and integrated analysis, and simulation and tuning of controllers. The reader can observe that it is possible to develop CACSD tools by using open general packages such as Matlab or Simulab, or by providing specialised software. He can then compare both approaches and get an improved understanding of their respective advantages and disadvantages. The leading article by the editors presents CACSD Methods and tools in a broader context. There is also detailed material on upper control layers, hierarchical control, and real-time systems.

Release Date: 2009-03-04
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Model Predictive Control System Design and Implementation Using MATLAB® proposes methods for design and implementation of MPC systems using basis functions that confer the following advantages: - continuous- and discrete-time MPC problems solved in similar design frameworks; - a parsimonious parametric representation of the control trajectory gives rise to computationally efficient algorithms and better on-line performance; and - a more general discrete-time representation of MPC design that becomes identical to the traditional approach for an appropriate choice of parameters. After the theoretical presentation, coverage is given to three industrial applications. The subject of quadratic programming, often associated with the core optimization algorithms of MPC is also introduced and explained. The technical contents of this book is mainly based on advances in MPC using state-space models and basis functions. This volume includes numerous analytical examples and problems and MATLAB® programs and exercises.
