Analysis and synthesis of fault-tolerant control systems by Magdi S. Mahmoud

, , Comment Closed

By Magdi S. Mahmoud

In fresh years, regulate structures became extra refined with the intention to meet elevated functionality and defense standards for contemporary technological platforms. Engineers have gotten extra conscious that traditional suggestions regulate layout for a posh approach can result in unsatisfactory functionality, or maybe instability, within the occasion of malfunctions in actuators, sensors or different process elements. that allows you to dodge such weaknesses, new methods to regulate approach layout have emerged which could tolerate part malfunctions whereas conserving applicable balance and function. all these keep watch over structures are frequently often called fault-tolerant regulate platforms (FTCS). extra accurately, FTCS are keep an eye on structures which own the facility to house part failure automatically.

Analysis and Synthesis of Fault-Tolerant regulate Systems comprehensively covers the research and synthesis equipment of fault tolerant regulate platforms. It unifies the equipment for constructing controllers and filters for a large category of dynamical platforms and stories at the contemporary technical advances in layout methodologies. MATLAB® is used during the publication, to illustrate tools of study and design.

Key features:

• offers complicated theoretical equipment and ordinary sensible applications
• presents entry to a spectrum of keep an eye on layout tools utilized to commercial systems
• comprises case reports and illustrative examples
• comprises end-of-chapter problems

Analysis and Synthesis of Fault-Tolerant regulate Systems is a finished reference for researchers and practitioners operating during this region, and is usually a worthy resource of data for graduates and senior undergraduates on top of things, mechanical, aerospace, electric and mechatronics engineering departments.

By Author Unknown

Singular perturbations and time-scale ideas have been brought to regulate engineering within the overdue Sixties and feature considering the fact that develop into universal instruments for the modeling, research, and layout of keep watch over structures. during this SIAM Classics variation of the 1986 ebook, the unique textual content is reprinted in its entirety (along with a brand new preface), supplying once more the theoretical origin for consultant keep watch over functions.

This booklet remains to be crucial in lots of methods. It lays down the basis of singular perturbation idea for linear and nonlinear structures, it offers the technique in a pedagogical approach that's not on hand wherever else, and it illustrates the speculation with many solved examples, together with quite a few actual examples and purposes. So whereas new advancements may fit past the subjects lined during this ebook, they're nonetheless according to the technique defined the following, which is still their universal start line.

By Petros Ioannou, Barýp Fidan

Designed to satisfy the wishes of a large viewers with out sacrificing mathematical intensity and rigor, Adaptive regulate instructional provides the layout, research, and alertness of a large choice of algorithms that may be used to regulate dynamical structures with unknown parameters. Its tutorial-style presentation of the elemental strategies and algorithms in adaptive regulate make it compatible as a textbook.

Adaptive keep an eye on educational is designed to serve the desires of 3 certain teams of readers: engineers and scholars attracted to studying tips to layout, simulate, and enforce parameter estimators and adaptive keep watch over schemes with no need to totally comprehend the analytical and technical proofs; graduate scholars who, as well as achieving the aforementioned pursuits, additionally are looking to comprehend the research of straightforward schemes and get an concept of the stairs concerned with extra advanced proofs; and complicated scholars and researchers who are looking to examine and comprehend the main points of lengthy and technical proofs with a watch towards pursuing study in adaptive regulate or similar issues.

The authors in achieving those a number of targets by means of enriching the booklet with examples demonstrating the layout techniques and uncomplicated research steps and by way of detailing their proofs in either an appendix and electronically to be had supplementary fabric; on-line examples also are to be had. an answer guide for teachers might be received by way of contacting SIAM or the authors.

This ebook might be invaluable to masters- and Ph.D.-level scholars in addition to electric, mechanical, and aerospace engineers and utilized mathematicians.

Preface; Acknowledgements; record of Acronyms; bankruptcy 1: creation; bankruptcy 2: Parametric types; bankruptcy three: Parameter id: non-stop Time; bankruptcy four: Parameter id: Discrete Time; bankruptcy five: Continuous-Time version Reference Adaptive keep watch over; bankruptcy 6: Continuous-Time Adaptive Pole Placement keep an eye on; bankruptcy 7: Adaptive regulate for Discrete-Time structures;

By Anis Koubaa, Abdelmajid Khelil

Mobile robots and instant Sensor Networks (WSNs) have enabled nice potentials and a wide area for ubiquitous and pervasive functions. Robotics and WSNs have often been regarded as separate study fields and little paintings has investigated the wedding among those applied sciences. despite the fact that, those applied sciences proportion numerous positive factors, permit universal cyber-physical functions and supply complementary help to every other.
 the first target of ebook is to supply a reference for state of the art stories and examine traits bearing on robotics and sensor networks, and specifically for the coupling among them.

The e-book involves 5 chapters. the 1st bankruptcy provides a cooperation approach for groups of a number of self reliant cars to unravel the rendezvous challenge. the second one bankruptcy is prompted via the necessity to increase latest suggestions that take care of connectivity prediction, and proposed a genetic desktop studying process for link-quality prediction. The 3rd bankruptcy provides an structure for indoor navigation utilizing an Android phone for directing quite a few clients, from sighted to the visually impaired, to their meant vacation spot. In bankruptcy 4, the authors care for actual prediction modeling of ocean currents for underwater glider navigation. In bankruptcy 5, the authors talk about the demanding situations and barriers of RSS-based localization mechanisms and suggest, EasyLoc, an self reliant and sensible RSS-based localization process that satisfies ease of deployment and implementation.
