This ebook systematizes fresh study paintings on variable-structure regulate. it truly is self-contained, providing useful mathematical preliminaries in order that the theoretical advancements might be simply understood by way of a extensive readership.

The textual content starts with an advent to the elemental principles of variable-structure regulate pertinent to their software in complicated nonlinear structures. within the center of the ebook, the authors lay out an method, compatible for a wide type of structures, that offers with method uncertainties with nonlinear bounds. Its remedy of complicated structures within which constrained dimension details is accessible makes the implications built handy to enforce. a number of case-study functions are defined, from aerospace, via energy structures to river pollutants keep watch over with helping simulations to assist the transition from mathematical concept to engineering practicalities.

The booklet addresses platforms with nonlinearities, time delays and interconnections and considers concerns corresponding to stabilization, observer layout, and fault detection and isolation. It makes vast use of numerical and useful examples to render its principles extra without problems absorbed.

*Variable-Structure keep watch over of advanced Systems* might be of curiosity to educational researchers learning keep an eye on concept and its program in nonlinear, time-delayed an modular large-scale structures; the robustness of its procedure may also be appealing to manage engineers operating in industries go together with aerospace, electric and mechanical engineering.
