On the structure of model errors and the inseparability of the modelling and control problems, R E Skelton.


Presents a state-of-the-art review of model error concepts, their characterization and compensation in estimation and control problems, with particular emphasis on error propagation, model order selection, performance guarantees, sensitivity and adaptive methods. Main topics covered include linear and nonlinear systems, identification, robotics, computer-aided design, signal processing, computers and communication in control, automation and real time control of processes.


Of interest to industrial, mechanical, control, electrical and electronic engineers and systems and computer scientists.
