Eigenstructure Assignment for Control System Design
Helicopters, aircraft and missiles are just some of the practical multivariable control systems to which eigenstructure assignment has been applied in recent years. Liu and Patton offer a uniquely integrated introduction to eigenstructure assignment theory and techniques for multi-input multi-output control system design. Features include: Introduction to the Eigenstructure Assignment Toolbox for use with MATLAB (examples available via the Internet) providing engineers with a powerful set of tools for the design of multivariable systems Broad coverage including the principle of eigenstructure assignment, basic, insensitive, robust and multiobjective eigenstructure assignment for multirate sampled-data systems, descriptor systems and fault detection systems Description of the majority of known eigenstructure assignment methods for both state and output feedback control offering the reader a concise reference Combination of time-domain and frequency-domain performance specifications for robust control design Postgraduates and researchers studying control engineering will appreciate the combination of mathematical theory and practical issues.
Control engineers, particularly those working in the aerospace industry, will profit from the detailed application sections which relate eigenstructure assignment to real industrial problems.
