Control and Dynamic Systems, Volume 18: Advances in Theory and Applications provides the techniques for the analysis and synthesis of large-scale complex systems. This book begins with a comprehensive treatment of component cost analysis of large-scale systems, including cost balancing methods for system design, failure mode analysis, model reduction techniques, and design of lower-order controllers that meet on-line controller software limitations. The problem of reduced-order modeling and filtering, linear multivariable systems synthesis techniques, and digital control of dynamical systems are deliberated in the next chapters. This publication concludes with the ship propulsion dynamics simulation and analysis and synthesis of complex distributed parameter systems. This volume is beneficial to students and researchers conducting work on advances in large-scale complex systems.
