Control and Dynamic Systems: Advances in Theory and Application, Volume 27: System Identification and Adaptive Control, Part 3 of 3 deals with system parameter identification and adaptive control. It presents useful techniques for adaptive control systems. This volume begins by presenting a powerful approach to multivariable model reference adaptive control based on the ideas and techniques of disturbance-accommodating control theory. It then discusses the modeling of biological systems; optimal control for air conditioning systems; linear programming for constrained multivariable process control; finite element approximation; development of irreducible state space singular systems; and discrete systems with multiple time scales. This book is an important reference for practitioners in the field who want a comprehensive source of techniques with significant applied implications.
