Control and Dynamic Systems: Advances in Theory and Application, Volume 16 is concerned with applied dynamic systems control techniques. It describes various techniques for system modeling, which apply to several systems issues. This book presents a comprehensive treatment of powerful algorithmic techniques for solving dynamic-system optimization problems. It also describes approaches for systems model that apply to system issues such as time delays. The remaining chapters of this book explore the simulation of large closed-loop systems and optimization of low-order feedback controllers for discrete-time systems.
Researchers who wish to broaden their understanding of dynamic systems control techniques will find this book invaluable.
