Adaptive and Fault-Tolerant Control of Underactuated Nonlinear Systems

Adaptive and Fault-Tolerant Control of Underactuated Nonlinear Systems

Jiangshuai Huang, Yong-Duan Song
November 24, 2017

The purpose of the book is to provide an exposition of recently developed adaptive and fault-tolerant control of underactuated nonlinear systems. Underactuated systems are abundant in real life, ranging from landing vehicles to surface ships and underwater vehicles to spacecrafts. For the tracking...

Electric and Plug-in Hybrid Vehicle Networks: Optimization and Control

Electric and Plug-in Hybrid Vehicle Networks: Optimization and Control

Emanuele Crisostomi, Robert Shorten, Sonja Stüdli, Fabian Wirth
November 17, 2017

This book explores the behavior of networks of electric and hybrid vehicles. The topics that are covered include: energy management issues for aggregates of plug-in vehicles; the design of sharing systems to support electro-mobility; context awareness in the operation of electric and hybrid...

Optimal and Robust Scheduling for Networked Control Systems

Optimal and Robust Scheduling for Networked Control Systems

Stefano Longo, Tingli Su, Guido Herrmann, Phil Barber
October 12, 2017

Optimal and Robust Scheduling for Networked Control Systems tackles the problem of integrating system components—controllers, sensors, and actuators—in a networked control system. It is common practice in industry to solve such problems heuristically, because the few theoretical results available...

Deterministic Learning Theory for Identification, Recognition, and Control

Deterministic Learning Theory for Identification, Recognition, and Control

Cong Wang, David J. Hill
October 06, 2017

Deterministic Learning Theory for Identification, Recognition, and Control presents a unified conceptual framework for knowledge acquisition, representation, and knowledge utilization in uncertain dynamic environments. It provides systematic design approaches for identification, recognition, and...

System Modeling and Control with Resource-Oriented Petri Nets

System Modeling and Control with Resource-Oriented Petri Nets

MengChu Zhou, Naiqi Wu
June 14, 2017

Petri nets are widely used in modeling, analysis, and control of discrete event systems arising from manufacturing, transportation, computer and communication networks, and web service systems. However, Petri net models for practical systems can be very large, making it difficult to apply such...

Synchronization and Control of Multiagent Systems

Synchronization and Control of Multiagent Systems

Dong Sun
June 14, 2017

Multiple intelligent agent systems are commonly used in research requiring complex behavior. Synchronization control provides an advantage in solving the problem of multi-agent coordination. This book focuses on the use of synchronization control to coordinate the group behavior of multiple agents....

Jian Cheng Lv, Zhang Yi, Jiliu Zhou
June 14, 2017

Using real-life examples to illustrate the performance of learning algorithms and instructing readers how to apply them to practical applications, this work offers a comprehensive treatment of subspace learning algorithms for neural networks. The authors summarize a decade of high quality...

Analysis and Synthesis of Fuzzy Control Systems: A Model-Based Approach

Analysis and Synthesis of Fuzzy Control Systems: A Model-Based Approach

Gang Feng
June 14, 2017

Fuzzy logic control (FLC) has proven to be a popular control methodology for many complex systems in industry, and is often used with great success as an alternative to conventional control techniques. However, because it is fundamentally model free, conventional FLC suffers from a lack of tools...

Networked Control Systems with Intermittent Feedback

Networked Control Systems with Intermittent Feedback

Domagoj Tolić, Sandra Hirche
April 10, 2017

Networked Control Systems (NCSs) are spatially distributed systems for which the communication between sensors, actuators and controllers is realized by a shared (wired or wireless) communication network. NCSs offer several advantages, such as reduced installation and maintenance costs, as well as...
