Reliable Control and Filtering of Linear Systems with Adaptive Mechanismsby Guang-hong Yang
Synopses & Reviews
More and more, the advanced technological systems of today rely on sophisticated control systems designed to assure greater levels of safe operation while optimizing performance. Rather than assuming always perfect conditions, these systems require adaptive approaches capable of coping with inevitable system component faults. Conventional feedback control designs do not offer that capability and can result in unsatisfactory performance or even instability, which is totally unacceptable in complex systems such as aircraft, spacecraft, and nuclear power plants where safety is a paramount concern.
Reliable Control and Filtering of Linear Systems with Adaptive Mechanisms presents recent research results that are advancing the field. It shows how adaptive mechanisms can be successfully introduced into the traditional reliable control/filtering, so that, based on the online estimation of eventual faults, the proposed adaptive reliable controller/filter parameters are updated automatically to compensate for any fault effects.
Presenting a new method for fault-tolerant control (FTC) in the context of existing research, this uniquely cohesive volume, coauthored by two leading researchers
The authors also extend the design idea from linear systems to linear time-delay systems via both memory and memory-less controllers. Moreover, some more recent results for the corresponding adaptive reliable control against actuator saturation are included. Ultimately, this remarkably practical resource, offers design approaches and guidelines that researchers can readily employ in the design of advanced FTC techniques offering improved reliability, maintainability, and survivability.
Book News Annotation:
This book presents the authors' original research on designing reliable controllers and filters for linear systems. Examples demonstrate how adaptive mechanisms can be introduced into traditional reliable control/filters for linear systems. The book focuses exclusively on reliable control/filtering in the framework of the indirect adaptive method and linear matrix inequalities (LMI) techniques. After an opening chapter reviewing linear matrix inequalities, the book covers adaptive reliable control and filtering against actuator faults and sensor faults, and adaptive reliable control for time-delay systems, actuator saturation, and nonlinear time-delay systems. Case studies come from the aerospace industry. Yang and Ye are affiliated with Northeastern University, China. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
This book reports on a new method of fault tolerant control based on the authorsa (TM) research findings. The authors develop a theoretical framework for reliable control in linear systems with adaptive mechanisms. They also present guidelines for designing control systems with guaranteed stability and desired performance in the presence of actuator/sensor failures. The book contains valuable reference materials for researchers in reliable control as well as practicing engineers. It provides industrial case studies, including flight tracking control systems design for F-16 fighter jets and also redundant sensors for motors.
