New Trends in Observer-Based Control: An Introduction to Design Approaches and Engineering Applications, Volume One presents a clear-and-concise introduction to the latest advances in observer-based control design. It provides a comprehensive tutorial on new trends in the design of observer-based controllers for which the separation principle is well established. In addition, since the theoretical developments remain more advanced than the engineering applications, more experimental results are still needed. A wide range of applications are covered, and the book contains worked examples which make it ideal for both advanced courses and researchers starting in the field.

Jose Ragot

José RAGOT received the "Diplome d'Ingénieur" (Engineer Degree) with specialization in control from the Ecole Centrale de Nantes (France) in 1969. Then, he joined the University of Nancy (France) where is received the "Diplôme d'Etudes Approfondies" (Master Degree) in 1970. In 1973 he obtained the "Diplôme de Doctorat" (Ph. D. degree), a position as assistant professor at University Henri Poincaré in Nancy, and in 1980 the "Diplôme de Doctorat-es-Sciences". José Ragot moved up to professor in 1985 at the Institut National Polytechnique de Lorraine (INPL, National Polytechnic Institute of Lorraine). His major research fields include data validation and reconciliation, process diagnosis, fault detection, and isolation. Another part of his activities is devoted to modelisation and state estimation adapted to process diagnosis and mainly in the field of multi-models. Prof. Ragot is a researcher in the "Centre de Recherche en Automatique de Nancy" (CRAN, CNRS UMR 7039) where he was the head of the group "process diagnosis" during 12 years. Presently he is an Emeritus Professor (with the degree "Classe Exceptionnelle") at the "Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Géologie" (french "Grande Ecole") where he has been in charge the formation in automatic control.
