An introduction to a new design for nonlinear control systems--backstepping--written by its own architects. This innovative book breaks new ground in nonlinear and adaptive control design for systems with uncertainties. Introducing the recursive backstepping methodology, it shows--for the first time--how uncertain systems with severe nonlinearities can be successfully controlled with this new powerful design tool. Communicative and accessible at a level not usually present in research texts, Nonlinear and Adaptive Control Design can be used as either a stand-alone or a supplemental text in courses on nonlinear or adaptive control, as well as in control research and applications. It eases the reader into the subject matter, assuming only standard undergraduate knowledge of control theory, and provides a pedagogical presentation of the material, most of which is completely new and not available in other textbooks. Written by the creators of backstepping, the book: * Introduces the basic design tools and demonstrates their effectiveness through worked examples * Provides detailed proofs and application examples (active suspension, jet engine, induction motor, and many others) * Develops adaptive backstepping, tuning functions, and modular designs with full state feedback * Generalizes the methodology to nonlinear systems with output feedback * Describes the advantages of the new adaptive nonlinear techniques over traditional methods * Offers a systematic methodology for performance improvement * Provides new designs for linear systems which can be used independently from therest of the book * Is self-contained with an extensive summary of stability and passivity prerequisites * Includes sixty illustrations and tables with design algorithms Nonlinear and Adaptive Control Design is an absolute must for researchers and graduate students with an interest in nonlinear systems, adaptive control, stability and differential equations and for anyone who would like to find out about the new and exciting advances in these areas.Krstic, Miroslav is the author of 'Nonlinear and Adaptive Control Design' with ISBN 9780471127321 and ISBN 0471127329.
