Cloud Control Systems: Analysis, Design and Estimation introduces readers to the basic definitions and various new developments in the growing field of cloud control systems (CCS). The book begins with an overview of cloud control systems (CCS) fundamentals, which will help beginners to better understand the depth and scope of the field. It then discusses current techniques and developments in CCS, including event-triggered cloud control, predictive cloud control, fault-tolerant and diagnosis cloud control, cloud estimation methods, and secure control/estimation under cyberattacks.
This book benefits all researchers including professors, postgraduate students and engineers who are interested in modern control theory, robust control, multi-agents control.
