Robust Control of Time delay Systems Author : Qing-Chang Zhong Publisher : Springer Science & Business Media Total Pages : 231 Release : 2006-05-28 ISBN 10 : 9781846282652 ISBN 13 : 1846282659 Language : EN, FR, DE, ES & NL GET BOOK Robust Control of Time delay Systems Book Description: Recently, there have been significant developments in robust control of time-delay systems. This volume presents a systematic treatment of robust control for such systems in the frequency domain. The emphasis is on systems with a single input or output delay, although the delay-free part of the plant can be multi-input-multi-output, in which case the delays in different channels should be the same. The author covers the whole range of H-infinity control of time-delay systems: from controller parameterization implementation; from the Nehari problem to the four-block problem; from theoretical developments to practical issues. The major tools used are similarity transformation, the chain-scattering approach and J-spectral factorization. Self-contained, "Robust Control of Time-delay Systems" will interest control theorists and mathematicians working with time-delay systems. Its methodical approach will be of value to graduates studying general robust control theory or its applications in time-delay systems.
