TL;DR: This review focuses on model predictive control of constrained systems, both linear and nonlinear, and distill from an extensive literature essential principles that ensure stability to present a concise characterization of most of the model predictive controllers that have been proposed in the literature.

TL;DR: In this paper, the focus is on adaptive nonlinear control results introduced with the new recursive design methodology -adaptive backstepping, and basic tools for nonadaptive BackStepping design with state and output feedbacks.
Abstract: From the Publisher: Using a pedagogical style along with detailed proofs and illustrative examples, this book opens a view to the largely unexplored area of nonlinear systems with uncertainties. The focus is on adaptive nonlinear control results introduced with the new recursive design methodology--adaptive backstepping. Describes basic tools for nonadaptive backstepping design with state and output feedbacks.

TL;DR: This comprehensive treatment of the analysis and design of continuous-time control systems provides a gradual development of control theory and shows how to solve all computational problems with MATLAB.
Abstract: From the Publisher: This comprehensive treatment of the analysis and design of continuous-time control systems provides a gradual development of control theory—and shows how to solve all computational problems with MATLAB. It avoids highly mathematical arguments, and features an abundance of examples and worked problems throughout the book. Chapter topics include the Laplace transform; mathematical modeling of mechanical systems, electrical systems, fluid systems, and thermal systems; transient and steady-state-response analyses, root-locus analysis and control systems design by the root-locus method; frequency-response analysis and control systems design by the frequency-response; two-degrees-of-freedom control; state space analysis of control systems and design of control systems in state space.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: Fuzzy logic is used to convert heuristic control rules stated by a human operator into an automatic control strategy, and the control strategy set up linguistically proved to be far better than expected in its own right.
Abstract: This paper describes an experiment on the “linguistic” synthesis of a controller for a model industrial plant (a steam engine). Fuzzy logic is used to convert heuristic control rules stated by a human operator into an automatic control strategy. The experiment was initiated to investigate the possibility of human interaction with a learning controller. However, the control strategy set up linguistically proved to be far better than expected in its own right, and the basic experiment of linguistic control synthesis in a non-learning controller is reported here.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, the three principal control effects found in present controllers are examined and practical names and units of measurement are proposed for each effect and corresponding units for a classification of industrial processes in terms of two principal characteristics affecting their controllability.
Abstract: In this paper, the three principal control effects found in present controllers are examined and practical names and units of measurement are proposed for each effect. Corresponding units are proposed for a classification of industrial processes in terms of the two principal characteristics affecting their controllability. Formulas are given which enable the controller settings to be determined from the experimental or calculated values of the lag and unit reaction rate of the process to be controlled
