Robust Receding Horizon Control for Networked and Distributed Nonlinear Systems (Hardcover) (Huiping Li
about this item
This book offers a comprehensive, easy-to-understand overview of receding-horizon control for nonlinear networks. It presents novel general strategies that can simultaneously handle general nonlinear dynamics, system constraints, and disturbances arising in networked and large-scale systems and which can be widely applied. These receding-horizon-control-based strategies can achieve sub-optimal control performance while ensuring closed-loop stability: a feature attractive to engineers.
The authors address the problems of networked and distributed control step-by-step, gradually increasing the level of challenge presented. The book first introduces the state-feedback control problems of nonlinear networked systems and then studies output feedback control problems. For large-scale nonlinear systems, disturbance is considered first, then communication delay separately, and lastly the simultaneous combination of delays and disturbances. Each chapter of this easy-to-follow book not only proposes and analyzes novel control algorithms and/or strategies, but also rigorously develops provably correct design conditions. It also provides concise, illustrative examples to demonstrate the implementation procedure, making it invaluable both for academic researchers and engineering practitioners.
