Nonlinear Output Regulation: Theory and Application
"Jie Huang has been and continues to be one of the primary developers
of the theory of nonlinear systems, including especially the theory of
nonlinear output regulation. He developed a firm mathematical foundation
for this field, and this book reflects the rigor and excitement of his
—Frank Lewis, University of Texas at Arlington.
"The topic of nonlinear output regulation is one of the most
important and currently one of the most active research areas in control
theory and applications. Jie Huang is one of the few leading researchers
in this area, and the material covered is excellent and cohesive."
—Zongli Lin, University of Virginia.
This book provides a
comprehensive and in-depth treatment of one of the most important control
problems: the nonlinear output regulation problem. It contains up-to-date
research results and algorithms and tools for approaching and solving the
output regulation problem and other related problems, such as robust
stabilization of nonlinear systems. The author also offers personal
insights about solving the output regulation problem. Output regulation is
a general mathematical formulation of many control problems encountered in
daily life including cruise control of automobiles, landing and takeoff of
aircraft, manipulation of robot arms, orbiting of satellites, and speed
regulation of motors.
Nonlinear Output Regulation: Theory and
Applications provides a self-contained treatment starting with an
introduction to the linear output regulation problem and a review of the
fundamental nonlinear control theory. The author's presentation strikes a
balance between the theoretical foundation of the problem and the
practical applications of the theory. The book is accompanied by many
examples, including practical case studies with numerical simulations
based on MATLAB /SIMULINK.
In addition to the time-tested results
on the output regulation problem obtained over the past two decades by the
author and other leading researchers in this field, the book highlights a
newly developed general framework that converts the robust output
regulation problem for a given nonlinear system into a robust
stabilization problem for an augmented system. This general framework is
based on the construction of nonlinear internal models and offers greater
flexibility to incorporate recent new stabilization techniques, thus
setting the stage for systematically tackling robust output regulation
with global stability. This general framework has been successfully
applied to solve the output regulation problem with global stability for
several classes of important nonlinear problems.
Graduate students, professors, and researchers in applied
mathematics, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and aerospace
engineering will find this book to be an informative and useful reference.
It can be used in a graduate-level control systems course as well as by
control design engineers in industry.
