Author: Dingyu Xue
Publisher: SIAM
ISBN: 0898718627
Release Date: 2007
Genre: Engineering mathematics

This book discusses analysis and design techniques for linear feedback control systems using MATLAB® software. By reducing the mathematics, increasing MATLAB working examples, and inserting short scripts and plots within the text, the authors have created a resource suitable for almost any type of user. The book begins with a summary of the properties of linear systems and addresses modeling and model reduction issues. In the subsequent chapters on analysis, the authors introduce time domain, complex plane, and frequency domain techniques. Their coverage of design includes discussions on model-based controller designs, PID controllers, and robust control designs. A unique aspect of the book is its inclusion of a chapter on fractional-order controllers, which are useful in control engineering practice.

Linear Feedback Controls

Release Date: 2013-07-25
Genre: Technology & Engineering

The design of control systems is at the very core of engineering. Feedback controls are ubiquitous, ranging from simple room thermostats to airplane engine control. Helping to make sense of this wide-ranging field, this book provides a new approach by keeping a tight focus on the essentials with a limited, yet consistent set of examples. Analysis and design methods are explained in terms of theory and practice. The book covers classical, linear feedback controls, and linear approximations are used when needed. In parallel, the book covers time-discrete (digital) control systems and juxtaposes time-continuous and time-discrete treatment when needed. One chapter covers the industry-standard PID control, and one chapter provides several design examples with proposed solutions to commonly encountered design problems. The book is ideal for upper level students in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, biological/biomedical engineering, chemical engineering and agricultural and environmental engineering and provides a helpful refresher or introduction for graduate students and professionals Focuses on the essentials of control fundamentals, system analysis, mathematical description and modeling, and control design to guide the reader Illustrates the theory and practical application for each point using real-world examples Strands weave throughout the book, allowing the reader to understand clearly the use and limits of different analysis and design tools

Classical Feedback Control

This second edition textbook describes the design and implementation of high-performance feedback controllers for engineering systems. It emphasizes the frequency-domain design and methods based on Bode integrals, loop shaping, and nonlinear dynamic compensation. The authors include many problems and offer practical applications, illustrations, and plots with MATLAB simulation and design examples. This text contains homework problems accompanied by actual solutions. Examples include case studies and real-world situations.

Control of Linear Systems with Regulation and Input Constraints

Author: Ali Saberi
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9781447107279
Release Date: 2012-12-06
Genre: Technology & Engineering

This monograph couples output regulation with several recent developments in modern control theory. It re-examines output regulation theory to achieve a design of controllers that take into account the physical limiting characteristics of actuators such as saturation. The book provides a solution to the basic problem of finding a controller that achieves internal stabilization, results in a desired performance norm, and renders asymptotic tracking of a reference signal even in the presence of persistent disturbances.

Internal and External Stabilization of Linear Systems with Constraints

Author: Ali Saberi
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9780817647872
Release Date: 2012-06-21
Genre: Science

Unifying two decades of research, this book is the first to establish a comprehensive foundation for a systematic analysis and design of linear systems with general state and input constraints. For such systems, which can be used as models for most nonlinear systems, the issues of stability, controller design, additonal constraints, and satisfactory performance are addressed. The book is an excellent reference for practicing engineers, graduate students, and researchers in control systems theory and design. It may also serve as an advanced graduate text for a course or a seminar in nonlinear control systems theory and design in applied mathematics or engineering departments. Minimal prerequisites include a first graduate course in state-space methods as well as a first course in control systems design.

"There are three words that characterize this work: thoroughness, completeness and clarity. The authors are congratulated for taking the time to write an excellent linear systems textbook!" —IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control Linear systems theory plays a broad and fundamental role in electrical, mechanical, chemical and aerospace engineering, communications, and signal processing. A thorough introduction to systems theory with emphasis on control is presented in this self-contained textbook, written for a challenging one-semester graduate course. A solutions manual is available to instructors upon adoption of the text. The book’s flexible coverage and self-contained presentation also make it an excellent reference guide or self-study manual. For a treatment of linear systems that focuses primarily on the time-invariant case using streamlined presentation of the material with less formal and more intuitive proofs, please see the authors’ companion book entitled A Linear Systems Primer.

Linear and Nonlinear Multivariable Feedback Control

Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 9780470061046
Release Date: 2008-03-03
Genre: Science

"Linear and Nonlinear Multivariable Feedback Control presents a highly original, unified control theory of both linear and nonlinear multivariable (also known as multi-input multi-output (MIMO)) feedback systems as a straightforward extension of classical control theory. It shows how the classical engineering methods look in the multidimensional case and how practising engineers or researchers can apply them to the analysis and design of linear and nonlinear MIMO systems."--BOOK JACKET.

Observers for Linear Systems

Author: John O'Reilly
Publisher: Academic Press
ISBN: 0080959997
Release Date: 1983-08-18
Genre: Mathematics

My aim, in writing this monograph, has been to remedy this omission by presenting a comprehensive and unified theory of observers for continuous-time and discrete -time linear systems. The book is intended for post-graduate students and researchers specializing in control systems, now a core subject in a number of disciplines. Forming, as it does, a self-contained volume it should also be of service to control engineers primarily interested in applications, and to mathematicians with some exposure to control problems.
