Networked Control Systems: Cloud Control and Secure Control explores new technological developments in networked control systems (NCS), including new techniques, such as event-triggered, secure and cloud control. It provides the fundamentals and underlying issues of networked control systems under normal operating environments and under cyberphysical attack. The book includes a critical examination of the principles of cloud computing, cloud control systems design, the available techniques of secure control design to NCS’s under cyberphysical attack, along with strategies for resilient and secure control of cyberphysical systems. Smart grid infrastructures are also discussed, providing diagnosis methods to analyze and counteract impacts. Finally, a series of practical case studies are provided to cover a range of NCS’s. This book is an essential resource for professionals and graduate students working in the fields of networked control systems, signal processing and distributed estimation.

Key Features

  • Provides coverage of cloud-based approaches to control systems and secure control methodologies to protect cyberphysical systems against various types of malicious attacks
  • Provides an overview of control research literature and explores future developments and solutions
  • Includes case studies that offer solutions for issues with modeling, quantization, packet dropout, time delay and communication constraints
