TP-Model Transformation-Based-Control Design Frameworks by Péter Baranyi

By Péter Baranyi

This publication covers new features and frameworks of keep an eye on, layout, and optimization in keeping with the TP version transformation and its a number of extensions. the writer outlines the 3 major steps of polytopic and LMI dependent keep watch over layout: 1) improvement of the qLPV state-space version, 2) new release of the polytopic version; and three) software of LMI to derive controller and observer. He is going directly to describe why literature has largely studied LMI layout, yet has now not targeted a lot at the moment step, partially as the iteration and manipulation of the polytopic shape used to be now not tractable in lots of situations. the writer then exhibits how the TP version transformation enables this moment step and consequently unearths new instructions, resulting in strong layout tactics and the formula of latest questions. The chapters of this e-book, and the advanced dynamical regulate projects which they disguise, are prepared on the way to current and examine the important point of the family members of methods (control, layout, and optimization). also, the booklet goals to show basic TP modeling; a brand new convex hull manipulation dependent chances for optimization; a basic framework for balance research; standardized modeling and process description; comfy and common LMI dependent layout framework; and a gateway to time-delayed systems.
