Adaptive Backstepping Control of Uncertain Systems with Actuator Failures, Subsystem Interactions, and Nonsmooth Nonlinearities

Wei Wang, Changyun Wen, Jing Zhou
October 13, 2017

In practice, actuators often undergo failures and various factors influence its effectiveness. Also due to the increasing complexity of large-scale systems, subsystems are often interconnected, whereas the interactions between any two subsystems are difficult to deal with. This book details a...

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...
