Introduction.- Optimal information exchange in overlapping control systems.- Characterizing all classes of LTI stabilizing overlapping controllers.- Robust control of LTI systems by means of structurally constrained controllers.- Performance evaluation of decentralized controllers.
Structurally Constrained Controllers: Analysis and Synthesis studies the control of interconnected systems with a particular application in network, power systems, flight formations, etc. It introduces four important problems regarding the control of such systems and then proposes proper techniques for solving them.
Explains and investigates recent cutting edge applications including such topics as formation flying
Complete coverage of robust control in structurally constrained controllers
Discusses the performance evaluation of decentralized controllers
Explains how to use new LMI method to solve traditional constrained control problems
