Linear Feedback Controls

Author: Mark A. Haidekker
Publisher: Newnes
ISBN: 9780124055131
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

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.

Linear Systems

Release Date: 2006-11-24
Genre: Technology & Engineering

"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

Author: Oleg Gasparyan
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.

Perspectives in Robust Control

Ship Motion Control

Author: Tristan Perez
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 1852339594
Release Date: 2005-06-08
Genre: Technology & Engineering

The impact of control system design on ship performance has been significant in different applications of ship motion control. This monograph introduces ship motion control by studying the problems of control system design for course autopilots with rudder roll stabilisation and combined rudder-fin stabilisers. Ship Motion Control revisits the ingredients that make these control designs challenging and proposes a contemporary control system design approach to meet that challenge. Organised in four parts, the book deals with: - appropriate mathematical models of the ship and disturbances; - understanding of how performance will be assessed; - knowledge of fundamental limitations on desired performance; - control system design. Ship Motion Control will interest the practising marine engineer and the academic engaged in research into this important control problem, even if new to the area. It will also be an ideal source of reference for students and tutors involved with marine and control engineering courses.

Attractive Ellipsoids in Robust Control

Author: Alexander Poznyak
Publisher: Springer
ISBN: 9783319092102
Release Date: 2014-09-29
Genre: Science

This monograph introduces a newly developed robust-control design technique for a wide class of continuous-time dynamical systems called the “attractive ellipsoid method.” Along with a coherent introduction to the proposed control design and related topics, the monograph studies nonlinear affine control systems in the presence of uncertainty and presents a constructive and easily implementable control strategy that guarantees certain stability properties. The authors discuss linear-style feedback control synthesis in the context of the above-mentioned systems. The development and physical implementation of high-performance robust-feedback controllers that work in the absence of complete information is addressed, with numerous examples to illustrate how to apply the attractive ellipsoid method to mechanical and electromechanical systems. While theorems are proved systematically, the emphasis is on understanding and applying the theory to real-world situations. Attractive Ellipsoids in Robust Control will appeal to undergraduate and graduate students with a background in modern systems theory as well as researchers in the fields of control engineering and applied mathematics.
