Multivariable Control System Design Techniques: Domininance and Direct Methods

Front Cover
Wiley, Jul 25, 1996 - Science - 238 pages
Frequency domain based techniques are used for analysing and designing multivariable control systems. The focus of this new book centres on two related concepts, that of dominance and the application of ideas from direct methods of matrix inversion to the problems of multivariable and sequential design. Written from a practical perspective, the text highlights several sequential design ideas, including:
  • Developments of a rigorous sequential design methodology and analysis based on Gauss-Jordon concepts
  • Presentation of frequency domain analogies of the direct methods of matrix inversion, obtaining new and exact sequential design and stability results
  • Discussion of procedures for obtaining and optimising dominance criteria, including input/output optimum assignment, optimum scaling and the use of parameterised precompensators
This detailed study, written by two well-known researchers in the field, will greatly appeal to practising engineers in process control, chemical and mechanical engineering. Researchers concerned with systems design will also find this an invaluable reference source.
