Control and Estimation of Dynamical Nonlinear and Partial Differential Equation Systems
Theory and applications
Robotic and mechatronic systems, autonomous vehicles, electric power systems and smart grids, as well as manufacturing and industrial production systems can exhibit complex nonlinear dynamics or spatio-temporal dynamics which need to be controlled to ensure good functioning and performance.
In this comprehensive reference, the authors present new and innovative control and estimation methods and techniques based on dynamical nonlinear and partial differential equation systems. Such results can be classified in five main domains for the control of complex nonlinear dynamical systems using respectively methods of approximate (local) linearization, methods of exact (global) linearization, Lyapunov stability approaches, control and estimation of distributed parameter systems and stochastic estimation and fault diagnosis methods.
Control and Estimation of Dynamical Nonlinear and Partial Differential Equation Systems: Theory and applications will be of interest to electrical engineering, physics, computer science, robotics and mechatronics researchers and professionals working on control problems, condition monitoring, estimation and fault diagnosis and isolation problems. It will also be useful to skilled technical personnel working on applications in robotics, energy conversion, transportation and manufacturing.
