Divided into seven chapters, the book provides an overview of the feedback control systems and the associated definitions, follow by a focus on finite dimension vector spaces, mappings and convex analysis. Also, a comprehensive treatment of continuous control system design is presented and an introduction to control design topics pertaining to discrete-time systems. It introduces linear H2 theory, linear H1 theory and dissipativity analysis and synthesis, follow by a wide spectrum of models pertaining to Electromechanical Systems. And finally, it examines the theory and mathematical analysis of multiagent systems.
This book will be a great reference for researchers on robust control theory and electromechanical system. In addition, graduate students working on robust control will benefit from this book
- Introduces a coherent and unified framework for studying robust control theory
- Provides the control-theoretic background required to read and contribute to the research literature
- Presents the main ideas and demonstrations of the major results of robust control theory
- Includes MATLAB codes to implement during research
