This textbook aims to provide a clear understanding of the various tools of analysis and design for robust stability and performance of uncertain dynamic systems. In model-based control design and analysis, mathematical models can never completely represent the “real world” system that is being modeled, and thus it is imperative to incorporate and accommodate a level of uncertainty into the models. This book directly addresses these issues from a deterministic uncertainty viewpoint and focuses on the interval parameter characterization of uncertain systems. Various tools of analysis and design are presented in a consolidated manner. This volume fills a current gap in published works by explicitly addressing the subject of control of dynamic systems from linear state space framework, namely using a time-domain, matrix-theory based approach. This book also: Presents and formulates the robustness problem in a linear state space model framework. Illustrates various systems level methodologies with examples and applications drawn from aerospace, electrical and mechanical engineering. Provides connections between lyapunov-based matrix approach and the transfer function based polynomial approaches. Robust Control of Uncertain Dynamic Systems: A Linear State Space Approach is an ideal book for first year graduate students taking a course in robust control in aerospace, mechanical, or electrical engineering.

This book is a collection of 34 papers presented by leading researchers at the International Workshop on Robust Control held in San Antonio, Texas in March 1991. The common theme tying these papers together is the analysis, synthesis, and design of control systems subject to various uncertainties. The papers describe the latest results in parametric understanding, H8 uncertainty, l1 optical control, and Quantitative Feedback Theory (QFT). The book is the first to bring together all the diverse points of view addressing the robust control problem and should strongly influence development in the robust control field for years to come. For this reason, control theorists, engineers, and applied mathematicians should consider it a crucial acquisition for their libraries.

This timely work presents the definitive treatment of stability analysis and robust control design for nonlinear uncertain systems. While other books on the subject deal with robust control in linear systems, this is the first book to tackle robust control design for such nonlinear entities as power systems, robotics, and more. It combines examples, proofs, and applications-clearly showing how to build high performance and better control into systems that are too complex to be modeled accurately. A unique feature of this book is its Lyapunov-based approach to control design, which is the only universal approach for nonlinear systems. The Lyapunov direct method is used here to develop all design procedures, to correlate leading techniques in the field to the structural properties of uncertain systems, and to compare robust and nonrobust types of controls such as adaptive control, learning control, and optimal control. The subject is introduced with a self-contained treatment of the nonlinear stability theory originally proposed by Lyapunov and LaSalle. Emphasizing the basics, the introductory chapters incorporate three types of solutions, stability concepts, and various theorems. The main body of the text offers a comprehensive treatment for current design methods, including state space robust control designs, properties of various robust controllers, input-output control, and discrete robust control designs. In Robust Control of Nonlinear Uncertain Systems, author Zhihua Qu presents the complete set of control design procedures for nonlinear uncertain systems, including backward recurisve design, forward recursive design, recursive-interlacing design, feedback linearization, nonlinear optimal control, and sub-optimal control. Also featured here is the breakthrough recursive interlacing design that facilitates robust control for uncertain systems with all cascaded, feedback, and feedforward dynamics. Throughout, Professor Qu presents the pros and cons of specific methods, rationales for choosing particular design parameters,and tips on questions of stability, performance, and systems structure. For engineers and graduate students in mechanical, electrical, and aerospace engineering, Robust Control of Nonlinear Uncertain Systems imparts the technical know-how for effective design, explores key theoretical issues in control, and provides insight into future trends in the field.

Many plants have large variations in operating conditions. To ensure smooth running it is essential to find a simple fixed gain controller that guarantees rapidly decaying and well-damped transients for all admissible operating conditions. Robust Control presents design tools, developed by the authors, for the solution of this design problem. Examples of simple and complex cases such as a crane, a flight control problem and the automatic and active four-wheel steering of a car illustrate the use of these tools. This book is intended for anyone who has taken an undergraduate course in feedback control systems and who seeks an advanced treatment of robust control with applications. Drawing on the resources and authoritative research of a leading aerospace institute, it will mainly be of interest to mechanical and electrical engineers in universities, institutes and industrial research centres.

"Robust Control for Uncertain Networked Control Systems with Random Delays" addresses the problem of analysis and design of networked control systems when the communication delays are varying in a random fashion. The random nature of the time delays is typical for commercially used networks, such as a DeviceNet (which is a controller area network) and Ethernet network. The main technique used in this book is based on the Lyapunov-Razumikhin method, which results in delay-dependent controllers. The existence of such controllers and fault estimators are given in terms of the solvability of bilinear matrix inequalities. Iterative algorithms are proposed to change this non-convex problem into quasi-convex optimization problems, which can be solved effectively by available mathematical tools. Finally, to demonstrate the effectiveness and advantages of the proposed design method in the book, numerical examples are given in each designed control system.

In this chapter, adaptive gain robust control strategies for uncertain dynamical systems are presented. Firstly, synthesis of centralized adaptive gain robust controllers for a class of uncertain linear systems is shown. The design problem of the centralized controller is reduced to the constrained convex optimization problem, and allowable perturbation regions of unknown parameters are discussed. Next, the result for the centralized robust controller is extended to uncertain large-scale interconnected systems, that is, an LMI-based design approach for decentralized adaptive gain robust controllers is suggested.

The last thirty years have witnessed an enormous effort in the field of robust control of dynamical systems. The main objective of this book is that of presenting, in a unified framework, the main results appeared in the literature on this topic, with particular reference to the robust stability problem for linear systems subject to time-varying uncertainties. The book mainly focuses on those problems for which a definitive solution has been found; indeed most of the results we shall present are given in the form of necessary and sufficient conditions involving the feasibility of Linear Matrix Inequalities based problems. For self-containedness purposes, most of the results provided in the book are proven. We have tried to maintain the development of the proofs as simple as possible, without sacrificing the mathematical rigor. Some parts of the book (especially those contained in Chaps. 2, 3 and 5) can be teached in advanced control courses; however this work is mainly devoted to both researchers in the field of systems and control theory and engineers working in industries which want to apply the methodologies presented in the book to practical control problems. To this regard, as the various results are derived, they are immediately reinforced with real world examples.

This book covers a wide range of up-to-date sliding mode Variable Structure Control (VSC) and Lyapunov Control research and design techniques for the robust control of uncertain systems. In direct contrast to most adaptive controllers, these deterministic controllers employ fixed nonlinear feedback control functions, which operate effectively over a specified magnitude range of system parameter variations and disturbances. There are 18 chapters covering and discussing such topics as the theoretical and practical design of controllers for uncertain multivariable systems, novel algebraic approaches for sliding mode control, discrete-time control, and the stabilizing VSC of uncertain infinite-dimensional systems. The main areas of application include electric motor drives, robotics, flight control and space systems, as well as power electronics and chemical processes, some of which are described in the book.
