Valery D. Yurkevich was born in Novosibirsk, Russia. He graduated from Novosibirsk Institute of Electrical Engineering (Dipl.Eng.) in 1974. In 1979 he started working at the Automation Department of the Novosibirsk Institute of Electrical Engineering as an researcher and in 1986 he received a Ph.D. (Cand. Eng.Sc.) degree from the Novosibirsk Institute of Electrical Engineering. He was Associate Professor of the Automation Department of the Novosibirsk Institute of Electrical Engineering (since 1993 it is the Novosibirsk State Technical University) from 1989 to 1997. He received a D.Sc. degree in the field of automatic control system theory from the Novosibirsk State Technical University in 1997. He is an author of more than 150 technical papers. He was a visiting researcher at the Silesian Technical University, Poland (1990), visiting researcher at University of Twente, The Netherlands (1993), visiting professor at the Silesian Technical University, Poland (1998), visiting research professor at Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Faculty of Engineering and Computer Science, Concordia University, Montreal, Canada (2001-2003), visiting professor at University of Ulsan, Korea (2006), Harbin University of Science and Technology (2007), and National University of Singapore (2007). Currently he is Professor of the Automation Department at the Novosibirsk State Technical University and teaches courses on control principles for undergraduates, and courses on guaranteed cost control methods under conditions of incomplete information at the graduate level. Research interests: Design of nonlinear control systems. The problems of output regulation for the nonlinear time-varying control systems under condition of incomplete information about varying parameters of the system and external disturbances.

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.

Yurkevich V.D. Design of nonlinear control systems with the highest derivative in feedback. (Series on Stability, Vibration and Control of Systems, Series A - Vol. 16), World Scientific Publishing Co., 2004, 352 p. ISBN 981-238-899-0. Summary: This unique book presents an analytical uniform design methodology of continuous-time or discrete-time nonlinear control system design which guarantees desired transient performances in the presence of plant parameter variations and unknown external disturbances. The presented approach allows making comprehensive design of PI, PID, and PIDF controllers, shows constraints and application domain of ones. All results are illustrated with numerical simulations, their practical importance is highlighted, and they may be used for real-time control system design in robotics, mechatronics, chemical reactors, electrical and electro-mechanical systems as well as aircraft control systems. The book is easy reading and is suitable for teaching.

Novosibirsk State Technical University, Novosibirsk, 2016, 183 p.

ISBN: 978-5-7782-2979-2

Yurkevich V.D. Multi-input-multi-output control systems. Design of linear control systems with multi-time scale motions, Novosibirsk State Technical University, Novosibirsk, 2016, 183 p. ISBN 978-5-7782-2979-2. Summary: Textbook provides materials of lecture notes devoted to problem of analysis and design of linear multivariable control systems under uncertainty. A distinctive feature of the discussed control system design methodology is that two-time-scale motions are forced in the closed-loop system. Stability conditions imposed on the fast and slow modes, and a sufficiently large mode separation rate, can ensure that the full-order closed-loop system achieves desired properties: the output transient performances are as desired, and they are insensitive to parameter variations and external disturbances. The method of singular perturbation is used to analyze the closed-loop system properties throughout. Textbook contains numerous examples with simulation results and one is suitable for courses on advanced methods for continuous-time single-input single-output (SISO) or multi-input multi-output (MIMO) control system design. The textbook may be useful for graduate and postgraduate students in the field of control systems design. It will also be of interest to researchers, engineers, and university lecturers who are taking aim at real-time control system design.
