Applications of Nonlinear Control

Edited by Meral Altınay

University of Kocaeli, Turkey

A trend of investigation of Nonlinear Control Systems has been present over the last few decades. As a result the methods for its analysis and design have improved rapidly. This book includes nonlinear design topics such as Feedback Linearization, Lyapunov Based Control, Adaptive Control, Optimal Control and Robust Control. All chapters discuss different applications that are basically independent of each other. The book will provide the reader with information on modern control techniques and results which cover a very wide application area. Each chapter attempts to demonstrate how one would apply these techniques to real-world systems through both simulations and experimental settings.
