About this item
The book reports on the latest advances and applications of nonlinearcontrol systems. It consists of 30contributed chapters by subject experts who are specialized in the varioustopics addressed in this book. The special chapters have been brought out inthe broad areas of nonlinear control systems such as robotics, nonlinear circuits, powersystems, memristors, underwater vehicles, chemical processes, observer design,output regulation, backstepping control, sliding mode control, time-delayedcontrol, variables structure control, robust adaptive control, fuzzy logiccontrol, chaos, hyperchaos, jerk systems, hyperjerk systems, chaos control,chaos synchronization, etc. Special importance was given to chapters offeringpractical solutions, modeling and novel control methods for the recent researchproblems in nonlinear control systems.
This book will serve as a reference book for graduate studentsand researchers with a basic knowledge of electrical and control systemsengineering. The resulting design procedures on the nonlinear control systemsare emphasized using MATLAB software.
