This unique book provides a bridge between digital control theory and vehicle guidance and control practice. It presents practical techniques of digital redesign and direct discrete-time design suitable for a real-time implementation of controllers and guidance laws at multiple rates and with and computational techniques. The theory of digital control is given as theorems, lemmas, and propositions. The design of the digital guidance and control systems is illustrated by means of step-by-step procedures, algorithms, and case studies. The systems proposed are applied to realistic models of unmanned systems and missiles, and digital implementation.
This well-known book is an introduction to the field of digital, sampled-data control. It treats the field in depth and can be used for courses and for self study. The second edition has been completely revised and expanded with new results. The work now appears in two volumes, with Volume 2 to be published in 1989. The volumes form a unit and take the reader systematically from fundamentals to problems of real applications. The work is directed towards students of electrical and mechanical engineering, computer science (especially with a specialization on automation and control engineering), and other fields like biology, economics, space mathematics and physics. It is also directed to engineers and scientists concerned with solving concrete problems.
This book comprises a selection of papers that were first presented at VSS98 (5th International Workshop on Variable Structure Systems) held in Sarasota, Florida. This workshop was the fifth in a series of VSS international workshops, and the first to be held in the United States. Work presented herein on theoretical developments and applications on VSS and Sliding Mode, reflects how trends have advanced beyond the original ideas that are now well documented in a number of books and research monographs. In particular, the concepts of Sliding Sector and Second Order Sliding Mode introduced in this volume, will stimulate discussions and invite further extensions. Also, the focus on Sampled Data systems represents a positive trend towards practical industrial implementations of sliding mode controllers.
A comprehensive overview of nonlinear H∞ control theory for both continuous-time and discrete-time systems, Nonlinear H∞-Control, Hamiltonian Systems and Hamilton-Jacobi Equations covers topics as diverse as singular nonlinear H∞-control, nonlinear H∞ -filtering, mixed H2/ H∞-nonlinear control and filtering, nonlinear H∞-almost-disturbance-decoupling, and algorithms for solving the ubiquitous Hamilton-Jacobi-Isaacs equations. The link between the subject and analytical mechanics as well as the theory of partial differential equations is also elegantly summarized in a single chapter. Recent progress in developing computational schemes for solving the Hamilton-Jacobi equation (HJE) has facilitated the application of Hamilton-Jacobi theory in both mechanics and control. As there is currently no efficient systematic analytical or numerical approach for solving them, the biggest bottle-neck to the practical application of the nonlinear equivalent of the H∞-control theory has been the difficulty in solving the Hamilton-Jacobi-Isaacs partial differential-equations (or inequalities). In light of this challenge, the author hopes to inspire continuing research and discussion on this topic via examples and simulations, as well as helpful notes and a rich bibliography. Nonlinear H∞-Control, Hamiltonian Systems and Hamilton-Jacobi Equations was written for practicing professionals, educators, researchers and graduate students in electrical, computer, mechanical, aeronautical, chemical, instrumentation, industrial and systems engineering, as well as applied mathematics, economics and management.

This edition enables students to quickly build and test virtual prototypes to explore and study dynamic system concepts at any level of detail with minimum effort using block diagram modeling and simulation. Includes an extensive library of predefined blocks which can be dragged-and-dropped in order to build dynamic system models.
The first book to cover control systems design and simulataneously offer a detailed, quick-access tutorial on MATLAB. This completely self-contained introduction and tutorial on a major control systems software presents the major design techniques and their properties demonstrated using MATLAB as a tool. Readers will learn about design and master the software simultaneously.
Quality control is a major concern and the best method for ensuring proper quality is to establish process adjustments. This text presents statistical methods for process adjustment and their relation to the classical methods of process monitoring.

What are the relations between continuous-time and discrete-time/sampled-data systems, signals, and their spectra? How can digital systems be designed to replace existing analog systems? What is the reason for having so many transforms, and how do you know which one to use? What do s and z really means and how are they related? How can you use the fast Fourier transform (FFT) and other digital signal processing (DSP) algorithms to successfully process sampled signals? Inside, you'll find the answers to these and other fundamental questions on DSP. You'll gain a solid understanding of the key principles that will help you compare, select, and properly use existing DSP algorithms for an application. You'll also learn how to create original working algorithms or conceptual insights, design frequency-selective and optimal digital filters, participate in DSP research, and select or construct appropriate hardware implementations. Key Features * MATLAB graphics are integrated throughout the text to help clarify DSP concepts. Complete numerical examples clearly illustrate the practical uses of DSP. * Uniquely detailed coverage of fundamental DSP principles provides the rationales behind definitions, algorithms, and transform properties. * Practical real-world examples combined with a student-friendly writing style enhance the material. * Unexpected results and thought-provoking questions are provided to further spark reader interest. * Over 525 end-of-chapter problems are included, with complete solutions available to the instructor (168 are MATLAB-oriented).
Part of the McGraw-Hill Core Concepts Series, Control Systems: Principles and Design is a textbook for a control systems course at the advanced undergraduate level. The book presents a balanced approach, incorporating the frequency-response, root locus and state-variable methods as well as discussing the digital control of systems. MATLAB and real-world problems and examples are integrated throughout the book, so that practical applications are emphasized over theory. This is a concise, less expensive alternative. This series is edited by Dick Dorf.
