Control and Dynamic Systems: Advances in Theory and Applications, Volume 14 provides information pertinent to the fundamental aspects of linear and nonlinear multi-input–multi-output systems. This book presents the development of analysis and synthesis of these complex systems that describes several important applied issues.

Organized into five chapters, this volume begins with an overview of the basic issues in models for large-scale engineering systems and other systems. This text then examines the relations between model complexity or accuracy and system performance. Other chapters consider the various significant systems modeling and control issues in nuclear reactors. This book discusses as well the modeling issues and their methods that are fundamentally useful to the differential–functional (DF) system. The final chapter deals with complex many-element power systems and presents techniques for such systems.

This book is a valuable resource for controls and systems engineers. Aeronautic research workers will also find this book extremely useful.
