Recent Trends in Sliding Mode Control (Hardcover)
about this item
In control theory, sliding mode control (SMC) is a nonlinear control method that alters the dynamics of a nonlinear system by application of a discontinuous control signal that forces the system to “slide” along a cross-section of the system’s normal behavior. This book describes recent advances in the theory, properties, methods and applications of SMC, including a discussion about the advantages and disadvantages of different SMC algorithms; a new Lyapunov based approach for design of such controllers; gain adaptation for arbitrary order sliding mode control; new methods for design of arbitrary order sliding mode surfaces; and new applications in air breathing hypersonic vehicles, electro-pneumatic actuators, wind-energy conversion systems, and control of electrical machines with saturation.
