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.
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 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.

This revised edition addresses recent developments in the field of control theory. It discusses how the rise of 'Hoo' and similar approaches has allowed a combination of practicality, rigour and user interaction to be brought to bear upon complex control problems. The book also covers the rise of AI techniques.
Simulation is increasingly important for students in a wide variety of fields, from engineering and physical sciences to medicine, biology, economics, and applied mathematics. Current trends point toward interdisciplinary courses in simulation intended for all students regardless of their major, but most textbooks are subject-specific and consequently are not suitable for such a course. Simulation of Dynamic Systems with MATLAB® and Simulink® offers a unified introduction to continuous simulation that focuses on the common principles underlying the vast array of simulation models that describe very different phenomena. Written by accomplished expert Harold Klee, this text builds an in-depth and intuitive understanding of the basic concepts and mathematical tools that students can easily generalize to their own field of study. The author includes case studies, real-world examples, abundant homework problems, and thousands of equations to develop a practical understanding of the concepts. Moreover, he incorporates MATLAB® and Simulink® tools to help students gain experience with designing, implementing, and adjusting their simulations. This classroom-tested text works systematically through linear, continuous-time, and discrete-time dynamic systems as well as basic, intermediate, and advanced topics in numerical integration. Supplying downloadable MATLAB M-files and Simulink model files, Simulation of Dynamic Systems with MATLAB® and Simulink® is ideal for a one- or two-semester course in continuous simulation, offering valuable flexibility for instructors.
