High performance control deals with guaranteed stability and performance properties in systems that are subject to a variety of uncertainties and external disturbances. Presupposing basic familiarity with linear algebra, probability theory, linear dynamical systems, and some control theory, this text addresses the tools of optimal, robust, and adaptive control to develop the theory and practice of high performance control. The volume's ten chapters cover performance enhancement, stabilizing controllers, design environment, off-line controller design, iterated and nested (, ) design, direct adaptive- control, indirect , adaptive control, adaptive- application to nonlinear systems, real-time implementation, and laboratory case studies.
