Design of Two-Time-Scale Non-linear Time-varying Control Systems

St.-Peterburg: Nauka, 2000. 287 p. (in Russian)

ISBN: 5-02-024936-X

Yurkevich V.D. Design of Two-Time-Scale Non-linear Time-varying Control Systems. St.-Petersburg: Nauka, 2000. - 287 p.(Series "Analysis and Design of Nonlinear Systems", Ed. by G.A.Leonov and A.L.Fradkov). ISBN 5-02-024936-X (in Russian) Summary: The problems of robust controller design in order to form of desired performance indices of output transients for nonlinear time-varying systems under conditions of incomplete information about varying parameters of the system and external disturbances are discussed. The design methods of continuous-time and discrete-time controllers for single-input single-output as well as multi-input multi-output systems are presented. The developed approach to control system design is based on the formation of two-time scale motions in the closed loop system. Methods of singularly perturbed equations are used to analyse of closed loop system properties. There are numerous examples with simulation results and test tasks in the book. The book will be useful for researchers, engineers, university lecturers and postgraduate students in the field of automatic control under uncertainty.
