Control and Dynamic Systems: Advances in Theory and Applications, Volume 13 discusses the techniques of control and dynamic systems and their applications to modern complex systems. This book begins by discussing the application of modern optimal theory in the operation of large scale power systems. It then describes how to synthesize suspension forces for high-speed tracked vehicles. The succeeding chapters present examples of economizing problems; application of optimization techniques to aerospace vehicle problems; distributed parameter optimal design problem under dynamic loads; optimization of spacecraft; and stability problems in interconnected systems. Engineering students studying the application of control and dynamics to modern complex systems will find this book very useful.
