Robustness is often of crucial importance in control system design. Real engineering systems are vulnerable to external disturbance and measurement noise and there are always discrepancies between mathematical models used for design and the actual system in practice.
Robust Control Design with MATLAB® helps you learn how to use well-developed advanced robust control design methods in practical cases. To this end, several realistic control design examples ranging from teaching-laboratory experiments, such as a mass–damper–spring assembly, to complex systems like a flexible link manipulator are given detailed presentation. All the design exercises are conducted using MATLAB® Robust Control Toolbox, Control System Toolbox and Simulink®.
By sharing their experiences in industrial cases with minimum recourse to complicated theories and formulae, the authors convey essential ideas and useful insights into robust industrial control systems design using major H-infinity optimization and related methods allowing you quickly to move on with your own challenges
