"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.

Robust Multivariable Control of Aerospace Systems

Author: Declan Bates
Publisher: IOS Press
ISBN: UOM:39015057632476
Release Date: 2002
Genre: Science

Classical design and analysis techniques, many of which date back to the 1950's, are still predominantly used in the aerospace industry for the design and analysis of automatic flight control and aero-engine control systems. The continued success and popularity of these techniques is particularly impressive considering the radical advances in aircraft and spacecraft design and avionics technology made over this period. Clearly, an understanding of both the advantages and limitations of these methods is essential in order to properly evaluate the likely usefulness of more modern techniques for the design and analysis of aerospace control systems. One of the themes of this book is that the multivariable robust control methods it describes are logical and natural extensions of the more classical methods, and not replacements for them. It is assumed that readers of this publication are already familiar with classical flight control techniques. Emphasis is on the philosophy, advantages and limitations of the classical approach to flight control system design and analysis. Abstracted in Inspec

Robust Control Engineering

Author: Mario Garcia-Sanz
Publisher: CRC Press
ISBN: 9781315394978
Release Date: 2017-06-26
Genre: Technology & Engineering

This book thoroughly covers the fundamentals of the QFT robust control, as well as practical control solutions, for unstable, time-delay, non-minimum phase or distributed parameter systems, plants with large model uncertainty, high-performance specifications, nonlinear components, multi-input multi-output characteristics or asymmetric topologies. The reader will discover practical applications through a collection of fifty successful, real world case studies and projects, in which the author has been involved during the last twenty-five years, including commercial wind turbines, wastewater treatment plants, power systems, satellites with flexible appendages, spacecraft, large radio telescopes, and industrial manufacturing systems. Furthermore, the book presents problems and projects with the popular QFT Control Toolbox (QFTCT) for MATLAB, which was developed by the author.

System Design and Control Integration for Advanced Manufacturing

Release Date: 2014-10-27
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Most existing robust design books address design for static systems, or achieve robust design from experimental data via the Taguchi method. Little work considers model information for robust design particularly for the dynamic system. This book covers robust design for both static and dynamic systems using the nominal model information or the hybrid model/data information, and also integrates design with control under a large operating region. This design can handle strong nonlinearity and more uncertainties from model and parameters.

Control and Dynamic Systems V56 Digital and Numeric Techniques and Their Application in Control Systems

Publisher: Academic Press
ISBN: 9780323163279
Release Date: 2012-12-02
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Control and Dynamic Systems: Advances in Theory and Applications, Volume 56: Digital and Numeric Techniques and their Applications in Control Systems, Part 2 of 2 covers the significant developments in digital and numerical techniques for the analysis and design of modern complex control systems. This volume is composed of 12 chapters and starts with a description of the design techniques of linear constrained discrete-time control systems. The subsequent chapters describe the techniques dealing with robust real-time system identification, the adaptive control algorithms, and the utilization of methods from generalized interpolation and operator theory to deal with a wide range of problems in robust control. These topics are followed by reviews f the decentralized control design for interconnected uncertain systems; the computation of frequency response of descriptor systems by rational interpolation; the techniques for the synthesis of multivariable feedback control laws; and the effect of the initial condition in state estimation for discrete-time linear systems. Other chapters illustrate practical, efficient, and reliable numerical algorithms for robust multivariable control design of linear time-invariant systems, as well as a complete analysis of closed-loop transfer recovery in discrete-time systems using observer-based controllers. The last chapters provide the techniques in robust policy-making in the global economic environment and the implications of robust control techniques for continuous-time systems. This book will prove useful to process, control, systems, and design engineers.

Design of Modern Control Systems

Author: David John Bell
Publisher: IET
ISBN: 0906048745
Release Date: 1982
Genre: Technology & Engineering

This book presents developments in analysis and design techniques for control systems. Included are exciting results for feedback systems using complex variable methods, the important concept of robustness in controller design and the increasingly important topic of decentralized control for large scale systems. These and many other contributions illustrate the great activity and rapid progress which has taken place in the subject over the past few years. Only by bringing these contributions together under one cover can the practising engineer in industry and indeed the engineer in university or polytechnic keep fully informed on the 'state of the art' on a number of different fronts. Application of the theoretical developments and practical aspects of the subject are not forgotten; analysis and design of a nuclear boiler and some direct digital control system design procedures are but two topics discussed in the present book. Several of the chapters are followed by problems on the subject matter and worked solutions to most of these problems are given at the end of the book. This aspect will find favour with many readers since such contributions are often a great help in the understanding of the subject matter.
